Murray State responds with 81-66 win over UTEP in NIT opener
MURRAY, Ky. (AP) Murray State knows each game could be its last, so the Racers want to go out with a win and they want to make a statement doing it.
Jarvis Williams had 25 points and 14 rebounds and Murray State beat Texas-El Paso 81-66 on Tuesday night in the first round of the NIT.
Murray State (28-5), excluded from the 68-team NCAA Tournament field after losing in the Ohio Valley Conference tournament championship, made its eighth appearance in the NIT - its first since 2011.
