More About Murray State

Stuckey: Many will tout Murray State as the mid-major that can make some serious noise in your bracket — and for good reason. This team has high major athleticism led by a fantastic pair of juniors in Tevin Brown and KJ Williams. The Racers can turn teams over at a high clip and immediately convert those mistakes into points.

They also come in as hot as any team in the nation, having won 20 straight games after sweeping the OVC regular season and following that up with a conference tournament title. Their last loss came back in December at Auburn.

More About Saint Peter’s

Kyle Remillard: Saint Peter’s own the best defensive efficiency in the MAAC, while allowing just 63 points per game heading into the conference tournament. The Peacocks were also holding opponents to just 31% from 3-point range (42nd) and 46% on 2-point attempts (25th) before tournament play.

Much of that is thanks to one of the top rim protectors in the country in KC Ndefo, who led the conference with 2.5 blocks per game during the regular season.

The defense is undoubtedly elite, but the offense has major question marks.

The Peacocks turn the ball over at a rate outside the top 300 in the country. They were also hitting just 46% of their 2-point attempts heading into the conference tournament, 322nd in the nation at the time. But all those misses have led the Peacocks to grab offensive rebounds at a top-50 rate.
