The Murray State women’s basketball team hits the highway again Tuesday for the first of two road games beginning at Evansville. Tip-off from the Meeks Family Fieldhouse in Evansville, Indiana is scheduled for 6 p.m.
Series At A Glance
Tuesday will be the 39th meeting between the Racers and the Purple Aces, with Murray State leading the all-time series, 23-15. MSU has won each of the last three meetings between the two teams and also lead the series in Evansville, 10-9.
Scouting The Purple Aces
Evansville is also off to a hot start to the season and will enter Tuesday’s matchup at 4-1 after an 84-71 win at Purdue Fort Wayne Wednesday. The Purple Aces are currently averaging 77.4 points on 44.5-percent shooting with 39.8 rebounds per game, while their opponents average 64.8 points on 34.6-percent shooting with 44.2 rebounds per game.
Evansville currently has four players that average double-digits including two that are averaging 20-plus points per game. Je’Niya Davis and Abby Feit currently score 24.5 and 21.6 points per game, while Myia Clark and A’Niah Griffin follow at 11.0 and 10.3 points, respectively. In addition, Feit also leads Evansville on the glass at 9.8 rebounds per game.
A Win Would…
A win Tuesday would give head coach Rechelle Turner the 60th win of her career and allow her to pass Dew Drop Rowlett to become the 4th winningest coach in program history. She would also become the second fastest Racer coach to reach 60 wins, doing so in 124 games. The only former Racer coach who reached 60 wins faster was Bud Childers, who did it in 113 games.
Cleaning The Glass
Murray State currently ranks second in the nation in defensive rebounds per game with 34.7 defensive boards per game, while Nebraska leads at 36.3.
Shooting 50.0-percent from the floor against Alabama A&M, Murray State has now shot 50-percent or better in five of six games this season and are 4-1 in those contests.
Katelyn Young recorded her third double-double of the season against Alabama A&M, and second in a row, with 25 points and 11 rebounds. In addition, she was nearly perfect from the floor going 10-for-11 in the game, as well as 5-for-7 from the line.
Large In The Margins
With a 26-point win Saturday, each of Murray State’s five victories have come by 20 or more points. In the five wins, Murray State’s average margin of victory has been 30.0 with no wins coming by less than 23 points.
Flying Out of The Gates
Moving to 5-1 on the year with the win Saturday, the Racers are now off to their best start in over 30 years. The last time MSU started the season 5-1 or better was the 1988-89 season, when it opened the season at 6-0.
BRITAIN is “nowhere near” full lockdown and Christmas will be “great” despite panic over the Omicron variant, Sajid Javid has insisted
Two cases of the new super strain were confirmed yesterday – sparking fears the UK could be plunged back into lockdown over the festive season.
But Health Secretary Mr Javid has said “we’re nowhere near” reintroducing working from home or social distancing measures to combat coronavirus.
He told Sky’s Trevor Phillips on Sunday: “We know now those types of measures do carry a very heavy price, both economically, socially, in terms of non-Covid health outcomes such as impact on mental health.
“So, if one was to make decisions like that they would have to be done very, very carefully and we’re not there yet, we’re nowhere near that.”
He added that people should plan for Christmas as “normal”.
One change has already been implemented. Ten countries – South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho, Eswatini, Angola, Mozambique, Malawi and Zambia – are now on the UK’s travel red list. That was applied from 04:00 GMT, meaning that until further notice any British or Irish residents arriving in the UK after recently visiting any of those countries will have to quarantine in an approved hotel for 10 days.
