Racer Fans invited to Selection Sunday party
The Murray State Racers are in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament for a second-straight season and the 17th
time in program history, following their Ohio Valley Conference
Tournament title over the weekend in Evansville. The event is sponsored
by Community Financial Services Bank (CFSB).
Murray State Athletics invites all of Racer Nation to be part of the fun
on NCAA Selection Sunday, March 17. Fans can come out to the CFSB
Center in Murray, Kentucky when the doors open at 3:30 p.m. All fans are
asked to enter the arena through the lower or upper doors of Gate-A.
These entrances are where the large outside video board is located.
Admission is free and a great time is sure to be had by all as the
Racers learn of their NCAA Tournament assignment.
A live pre-selection show on Froggy 103.7 FM (Froggy103.com) will begin
at 4 p.m. and features on-stage interviews with Racer coach Matt McMahon
and many of the Murray State players. There will also be feature videos
including the Journey to the Tourney video which highlights an amazing
season of 27 wins for the Racers.
The 2019 NCAA Tournament field will begin to be revealed at 5 p.m. on
CBS and the excitement will build to the moment when the Racers find out
their seeding, opponent and game location. Fans will be able to watch
the CBS show on the center video boards in the CFSB Center.
Concession stands will be open at the CFSB Center as well.
One of the big items every Racer fan will want to get Sunday is a MSU
OVC championship t-shirt. Short sleeve t-shirts will be on sale for $10
and long sleeve for $15. The t-shirts are limited and will be sold on a
first come-first serve basis.
The first 1,000 fans will receive a free OVC championship poster.
