MURRAY, Ky. (KFVS) - The Murray State Racers are one win away from having the longest winning streak in the nation.

The Racers have now won 21-straight games after Thursday night’s overtime victory in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

They beat the San Francisco Dons 92-87 at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

The Racers’ fifth all-time win in the NCAA Tournament pushes them into a second-round game Saturday, March 19 against Saint Peter’s, who upset Kentucky in overtime 85-79.
