Murray State's dominance of the Ohio Valley Conference this season is self-evident enough. At No. 12 in the AP Poll, the Racers have run roughshod over the conference to the tune of a 28-1 overall record and a 15-1 mark in the Ohio Valley. Before they begin another run in the NCAA Tournament though, Murray State still has the Ohio Valley tournament to play. Because of their lofty regular season record, the Racers have a bye all the way to the semifinals.
