The Racers are the only mid-major school among the 13 schools that will be featured on the show. Some of the other schools include Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina, Pittsburgh and Syracuse.
While we’re on Racer basketball, West Kentucky Star.com reports Zay Jackson is reportedly waving his preliminary hearing. Jackson faces two assault charges after hitting two people with his car in a parking lot September 10th in Murray.
The preliminary hearing is scheduled for today at 9:30 am, however if it’s waived, the case will go to a Calloway County grand jury. Jackson has been suspended from the basketball team since the incident occurred.
