  •  

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - Raymond Cintron scored 20 points and led Middle Tennessee's 64.4 percent shooting effort in a 93-41 rout of Troy Saturday night.

The victory margin was the largest for the Blue Raiders (22-4, 14-1 Sun Belt Conference) since Nov. 17, 2001, when they defeated Bryan College by 56 points, 115-59. They also won their 11th straight game and are 14-0 at home.

The win was Middle Tennessee's 112th in Sun Belt play for coach Kermit Davis, tying the conference record of South Alabama's Ronnie Arrow, who retired this season. It also broke a tie with former Alabama-Birmingham coach Gene Bartow.

Middle Tennessee made 29 of 45 shots, including 10 of 19 3-pointers, to better its 56 percent shooting in a 97-53 win Nov. 9 over Alabama State.

Emil Jones scored 16 points for the Trojans (10-15, 5-9), who had their lowest point total and suffered their most lopsided loss this season.
