Murray State (No. 9 ESPN/USA Today, No. 10 AP), the nation's last remaining unbeaten team, will host Saint Mary's (No. 16 ESPN/USA Today, No. 18 AP) in a Sears Bracketbusters game Feb. 18, ESPN announced Monday.
Murray State is 21-0 but has not been challenged much in the Ohio Valley Conference. Saint Mary's is 21-2 overall and leads the West Coast Conference with a 10-0 record.
In the only other game involving a ranked team, Long Beach State will travel to Creighton (No. 12 ESPN/USA Today, No. 13 AP). The Bluejays (20-2, 10-1) lead the Missouri Valley, while Long Beach State is 9-0 in the Big West.
The BracketBusters concept, now in its 10th season, provides teams with an opportunity to play top nonconference opponents late in the season. Each conference selects its participating teams before the season, and the matchups for the event are determined by ESPN with the conferences.
