Murray State Wins The First Game Of the Tournament

    March 15, 2012

Murray State beat Colorado State to win the first game of the NCAA Tournament, or, well, at least the first full day. And no, I’m not counting the play-in games, thankyouverymuch. The 17-point victory was as decisive as it looks, as Murray State turned a one-point halftime deficit into a big-time tournament win. As you can see from CBS Sports’ shot chart, it was a long afternoon for the CSU Rams.


Next up, the Racers play the winner of the Marquette/BYU game. I hope your brackets didn’t get destroyed after one game:
