Monroe, LA (Sports Network) - Marcos Knight scored 17 points and cleared nine rebounds as he helped lead the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders to a 66-57 win over the ULM Warhawks in Sun Belt Conference play at Fant-Ewing Coliseum.

Knight, who converted 7-of-13 shots from the floor, added five assists and three steals for the Blue Raiders (14-4, 6-1 Sun Belt) as they won their third straight games and the seventh in the last eight outings. Bruce Massey chipped in 12 points and JT Sulton eight, to go along with a game-high 10 boards.

The Warhawks (3-10, 2-5) were paced by Amos Olatayo who accounted for a game- high 24 points, followed by Jayon James and R.J. McCray with 10 points apiece.
