“Having just completed an incredible decade of Murray State basketball, we are looking forward to celebrating one of the greatest teams in Murray State history at Racer Hoopalooza 2019,” said MSU Coach Matt McMahon. “This upcoming season marks the 10 year anniversary of Coach Billy Kennedy’s 2009-10 Racer team that won 31 games, an OVC championship, and in dramatic fashion, recorded the second NCAA Tournament win in program history.  Racer Hoopalooza will be a special event reuniting this historic team with our great fans here at Murray State.  We want to invite all of Racer Nation to join us Aug 2-3 for a memorable weekend in Murray, Kentucky.”
