Recap: Tenn-Martin vs. Jacksonville St

Martin, TN (Sports Network) - Tarvin Gaines scored a game-high 23 points, one of four starters in double figures, as the Jacksonville State Gamecocks delivered a 64-54 win over the Skyhawks of Tennessee-Martin in an Ohio Valley Conference battle at the Elam Center.

Darion Rackley added 13 points for the Gamecocks (10-3, 2-0 OVC) as he combined with Gaines to make 21-of-25 at the free-throw line. Ronnie Boggs and Brian Williams chipped in 10 points apiece as the squad won for the seventh time in the last eight outings.

The Skyhawks (3-11, 0-2) were paced by Myles Taylor who recorded a double- double with 22 points and 12 rebounds, adding four steals as well in an effort to offset his six turnovers as the team bowed for the sixth game in a row. Justin Childs contributed 12 points for the hosts.

The Mountain West Conference winner lost one game the last two years after eight consecutive seasons of unbeaten campaigns. Don't expect a team to run the table in 2014 but Boise State could come close.
