Racer Hoopalooza was first held in 2013 when Coach Steve Prohm brought the idea to life with a vision to create a reunion event that would spotlight the championship tradition at Murray State. The weekend highlights, the elite players and coaches that have passed through, and the amazing fan base we call ‘Racer Nation’. Coach Prohm, now in his second stint as MSU head coach, is preparing the Racers to enter the Missouri Valley Conference in the 2022-23 season.
