BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) Jared Savage scored 20 points to lead four in double figures and Western Kentucky beat Tennessee State 88-74 on Saturday night.

Western Kentucky (4-3) faced Tennessee State (2-5) for the first time since 2011, and is 9-0 in the series.

Kamar McKnight scored 30 points to lead Tennessee State. Donte Fitzpatrick-Dorsey had 25 points and Stokley Chaffee Jr. added 10 points and 10 rebounds.

It was the 600th win for the Hilltoppers inside E.A. Diddle Arena, which opened in 1963.
