TSU hopes depth leads to second upset

Murray State Coach Steve Prohm and Tennessee State Coach John Cooper disagree about what it took for the Tigers to upset the Racerstwo weeks ago.

TSU having so many players who have similar strengths, Prohm said, led to his team suffering its only loss.

But Cooper said it was TSU’s depth that helped the Tigers fight back from a 13-point deficit early in the second half and claim a 72-68 win before a sellout crowd of 8,668 at Murray State.

Another sellout crowd is expected tonight when the No. 14 Racers (26-1, 13-1 OVC) visit TSU (19-10, 11-4). Murray State already has locked up the No. 1 seed for the conference tournament next week at Municipal Auditorium and TSU has clinched the No. 2 spot. The game will be televised by ESPNU.
