    NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Jonathan Fairell had 17 points with seven rebounds while Jarvis Williams added 16 and 11 to help Murray State defeat Tennessee State 73-65 Saturday night.

    The Racers (14-9, 9-2 Ohio Valley) shot 50.9 percent from the field. Cameron Payne finished with 16 points and six assists, and T.J. Sapp chipped in 10 points.

    Tennessee State (3-23, 2-10) was led by Patrick Miller with 26 points. Kennedy Eubanks scored 13 points and M.J. Rhett had 10 with 10 boards.

    Murray State used a 12-3 run sparked by a pair of 3-pointers from Payne to move out to a 28-16 lead in the first half. Tennessee State trailed by nine at the break, but closed within five after a Jordan Gaither jumper with 4:38 left in the second half.

    A dunk by Fairell and a jumper by Payne put the Racers back up by 10 with 1:11 remaining.
