MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - LaRon Dendy scored 20 points and Middle Tennessee rallied for a 65-62 victory over Belmont on Tuesday night after squandering a 13-point second-half lead.

JT Sulton added 13 points, including a tying jumper with 2:20 remaining and a layup with 1:34 to play that put the Blue Raiders (10-2) ahead 63-62.

The Bruins (6-3), who beat Middle Tennessee 87-84 in double overtime on Nov. 20, failed to score in the final 2:06, missing three shots and turning the ball over twice.
