Not a single Blue Raider scored in double-figures, and Middle Tennessee was embarrassed 55-39 Thursday at Louisiana Tech.
The Bulldogs won the Conference USA showdown with a stifling defense that created MTSU turnovers and held the Blue Raiders to 35 percent from the field.
Michael Kyser owned the paint for Louisiana Tech with 9 points, 8 blocks and 7 rebounds.
Neiko Hunter, Shawn Jones and Reggie Upshaw each had 8 points for Middle Tennessee.
The Blue Raiders fall to 21-8, 11-3 in Conference USA.
