CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Southeast Missouri State University men's basketball team is looking for a much needed home win over Murray State University.

The Racers lead the overall head-to-head match up 54-19.
The Redhawks are looking to get back in the win column after falling to Austin Peay last week.
SEMO needs to string a few wins together if they are to have any chance at post-season play.
Murray comes into conference play at 5-4 and sitting just outside the top of the OVC West standings.
The Racers have had an up and down season and come in to play at just 11-11 overall.
