#10 Murray State remains unbeaten

MARTIN, Tenn. (AP) - Isaiah Canaan, Latreze Mushatt and Jewuan Long each scored 11 points and 10th-ranked Murray State remained the lone undefeated men's team in Division I, beating Tennessee-Martin 65-58 Saturday night.

The Racers (23-0, 11-0 Ohio Valley Conference) brought plenty of fans to cheer the school's longest winning streak. Combined with a "We Back Pat" night dedicated to alum Pat Summitt helping raise money for Alzheimer's, a sold-out crowd of 4,700 packed the Elam Center with fans lining the upper walkway.

Tennessee Martin (3-22, 0-12) lost its 13th straight. Murray State improved to 40-3 all-time against the Skyhawks and 18-3 in Martin.

Dane Smith led the Skyhawks with 24 points and Myles Taylor added 14.
