MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- Tweety Knight scored a career-high 15 points off the bench to lead Middle Tennessee in an 87-46 shellacking of Louisiana-Monroe Saturday.

The win was the 14th straight for the Blue Raiders (25-4, 17-1 Sun Belt Conference), the second longest winning streak in program history.

Middle Tennessee opened with a 10-0 run and led 46-15 at the intermission. Louisiana-Monroe (4-20, 3-15) shot just 27.3 percent (6 of 22) before the break, and made 37.2 percent (16 of 43) for the game.

Knight hit 5 of 7 from the field and 4 of 5 at the foul line. Starters Raymond Cintron and Marcos Knight had 11 points each for Middle Tennessee, which has already clinched first in the Sun Belt.

Amos Olatayo led the Warhawks with 10 points on 3-of-8 shooting.

The Blue Raiders scored 26 points off turnovers to Louisiana-Monroe's four, and held a 45-19 advantage in bench points.
