The Racers have been one of the great stories of the college basketball season, first running their record to 23-0 before joining the ranks of the defeated. The team, though, closed out the season with a 30-1 record and the Ohio Valley Conference's automatic bid following a tournament victory. Isaiah Canaan averaged 19.2 points per game.
