Stark's Buzzer Beater Lifts Racers On Opening Night

How can you open a basketball season with anything better than a buzzer beater for the win at home? It doesn't get any better and the Murray State men's basketball team enjoyed it firsthand Friday when Jonathan Stark hit a 3-pointer with two seconds remaining to give the Racers a 73-70 win over the Illinois State Redbirds at the CFSB Center in Murray, Ky. Stark's winner came after the Racers had fought back from a 62-58 hole with 2:38 to go. The win makes the Racers 1-0 as they head out on the road for the first time in the 2016-17 season Tuesday when they take on Middle Tennessee in Murfreesboro. Trailing 32-29 after an ISU half court buzzer shot by Keyshawn Evans, the Racers fell behind by eight less than four minutes into the second half. They rallied with four-straight 3-point baskets, two each from Terrell Miller, Jr. and Bryce Jones to take a 46-42 lead with 13:42 left. They led 55-53 on two Stark free throws with 6:35 left, but ISU had a 9-0 run which set up the Racers' comeback win. When the dust settled on the home opener, Miller led the Racers with 23 points on 9-of-14 shooting including 5-of-10 from 3-point range. Stark had 19 points, while MSU got 14 from Bryce Jones and 12 from Damarcus Croaker.
