Murray State's Isaiah Canaan will bail out your broken offensive set

Last night Murray State clinched the Ohio Valley Conference regular season crown and extended the nation's longest winning streak to 16. But nobody really gave a crap, because the Racers sixth-man Isaiah Canaan got on his knees with the shot-clock winding down... and banked in an improbable half-court shot. No really, it happened. ESPN's First Take was all over it this morning.

Despite the OVC being a low 2nd tier conference, Canaan's circus shot suddenly gives the Racers - a 60 percent true shooting team with seven players averaging 9.8 or more points a game - some deserved attention.
