RUSTON, La. (AP) Nick King scored 25 points with 10 rebounds and Middle Tennessee beat Louisiana Tech 87-70 on Saturday night to remain the lone team atop Conference USA and give coach Kermit Davis his 400th Division-I victory.

Brandon Walters posted his second double-double with 11 points and 11 boards while Antwain Johnson made four 3-pointers and scored 18 points with Giddy Potts adding 14 points for the Blue Raiders (22-5, 14-1), who have won nine straight games and won for the first time in eight visits to Ruston.
