Top 3 projected 2019 NBA Draft pick Ja Morant scored 36 points, grabbed 7 rebounds, and dished out 3 assists to help Murray State beat the Belmont Bruins 77-65 in the Ohio Valley Conference Championship game.
The Racers were the first team to punch its ticket to The Big Dance this year. If Morant keeps playing how he’s played throughout the year in the tournament, the Racers will have a good chance of winning at one least game in the tourney. Morant, who had only one Power Five offer in high school has placed the world on notice with his stellar play this season. He will get his chance to display his talents on the national scene in a little over a week.
Everyone knows March Madness is the time of year where upsets in college basketball are pretty normal, but still very exciting to see. The Murray State Racers will be looking to pull off an upset and advance past the round of 64 behind their star Ja Morant.
