NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Kylee Smith had 17 points and 11 rebounds, Darby Maggard had 14 points and 10 assists and No. 24 Belmont won its 17th straight game 80-56 over Morehead State on Saturday.

Sally McCabe added 16 points and Jenny Roy had 11 rebounds to go with nine points as the Bruins (26-3, 16-0 Ohio Valley Conference) had a 51-29 rebounding advantage.

Belmont clinched the OVC title outright and has won 35 straight regular-season conference games and 41 straight against OVC opponents.

Smith, McCabe and Maddie Wright had four points and Roy and Maggard had 3-pointers as Belmont bolted to an 18-2 lead.
