The Murray State Racers moved to 3-0 in the Ohio Valley Conference with a 67-44 win over Tennessee State on Thursday.

The Racers showed they can win a game not only with a high-powered offense, but also a lock down defense as they pushed their overall mark to 13-2 and nine straight wins.

KJ Williams scored his fifth double-double of the season on 12 points and 11 rebounds, while Tevin Brown and Trae Hannibal each added 11 points. Justice Hill dished out seven assists.

MSU's determined defense held TSU to 25 percent shooting to grab an early 12-2 lead in the first minutes of the game.

The Racers held the Tigers to 7-of-25 from the field for 28 percent, while doubling TSU up in hitting twice as many from the floor on 14-of-30 for 47 percent.

The Racers held the lead 35-16 at the halftime intermission. In the second half, the Racers pushed their lead back to 20 points after TSU had cut the MSU lead to 10.

The winning momentum carries the Racers into a Saturday showdown in Nashville against Belmont.
