In 1935, the men’s basketball team at Murray State University won the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (KIAC) championship. This was a significant achievement for the program, as the KIAC was one of the premier conferences in the region at the time.

Led by head coach Carlisle Cutchin, the team finished the season with a record of 16-4, which included a perfect 8-0 mark in conference play. The team was known for its tough defense and balanced scoring attack, which featured several players who went on to have successful careers in basketball and other fields.
