NASHVILLE- The Fisk Bulldogs (6-6) will travel 40 miles east tonight to Murfreesboro, Tennessee to take on the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders (6-2) at Murphy Center in the first meeting between the two schools. This is the second meeting in as many games against an NCAA oppenent for the Bulldogs as they traveled to Florence, Alabama this past Saturday and lost to North Alabama. Under Head Coach Kermit Davis, MTSU has been playing well over the past few years. After earning a berth to the National Invitation Tournament in 2011-12, they made it to the NCAA tournament last season. Last week, Belmont snapped their 33 game home regular season winning streak. It was the longest current streak of it's kind.
"Kermit has these guys playing well," said Fisk Head Coach Jay Smith. "He is a great recruiter and these guys by into his system. I am sure they are ready to statr another home winning streak so we will have our hands full. They have balanced scoring and on defense they are long and athletic. Are guys are excited to play them. We need to play a lot better than we did in the first half on Saturday to keep it close."
For a high school player in the state of Tennessee, playing at Murphy Center is the ultimate goal. It is the home to the Tennessee state tournament finals. NAIA All American Darrell Miller of Hillsboro High School in Nashville, Cameron Lewis of John Overton High School in Nashville and Chris Pollard of Germantown High School in Memphis are the only roster players from the state. Miller is the only one to have a chance to play in the state finals.
