Athletics

A long-standing tradition in the Ohio Valley Conference, the Murray State Racers men's basketball team has one of the longest stretches of consecutive winning seasons in the NCAA- 28 as of the beginning of the 2015-16 season. With such success over the past few years, it's no wonder that there is a contagious excitement surrounding the team. Racer Nation, as the fans like to collectively call themselves, is out in full force for every home game.

In addition to the stellar basketball team, MSU has many successful programs, including a football team with eight OVC titles. Racer Nation is a fan base that shows up to support any Murray State team, from the volleyball court or the soccer field.
