MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - Giddy Potts set career highs with eight 3-pointers and 28 points as Middle Tennessee turned an eight-point halftime lead into a 90-51 victory over Marshall on Thursday.

Middle Tennessee (14-13, 7-7 Conference USA) led 34-26 at the break and let Marshall within 36-32 after three minutes of the second half. The Blue Raiders then scored 18 straight to start a 50-7 run over the next 14 minutes, leading 86-39 with three minutes left. The freshman Potts had all eight of his 3s during that stretch and finished 10 of 14 from the field.

Perrin Buford added 13 points and Darnell Harris scored 12 for Middle Tennessee, which snapped its own three-game skid while ending Marshall’s three-game winning streak.

JP Kambola scored 12 points for the Thundering Herd.
