MURRAY, Ky. (AP) Eric Wortham Jr. and Neiko Hunter shared top scoring honors for Middle Tennessee State as Murray State proved no contest in losing to the Blue Raiders 80-62 on Tuesday evening.

Worthan Jr. shot 6 of 7 from the floor and made 3 of 3 from beyond the 3-point line and Hunter made 70 percent of his attempts going 7-for-10 for the Blue Raiders. The team accomplished an impressive 54 percent shooting from the field, but could only hit 11-of-19 free throws.
