Racers' basketball season ends

Murray State University's run in the NCAA basketball postseason is over. The No. 3 seed Racers fell 69-72 tonight in the NIT quarterfinals to top-seeded Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va.

The Racers ended the season at 29-6, including a 25-game winning streak and 16-0 record in the Ohio Valley Conference regular season. 

This year's run in the postseason matched the team's deepest venture ever in either the NIT or NCAA Tournament. In 1980, the Racers reached the quarterfinals of the NIT before losing a 2-point game to Illinois.
