NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Dylan Windler had career highs of 36 points and 20 rebounds - the first 30-20 game in Belmont history - to help the Bruins beat Morehead State 108-65 on Saturday night.

Windler was 14-of-17 shooting, including 6 of 9 from 3-point range, and his rebound with 9:24 left in the first half gave him 11 points and 10 boards - his 13th double-double of the season. He had Belmont’s second-most rebounds in a game since moving to NCAA Division I prior to the 1996-97 season; Adam Sonn grabbed 21 boards on Jan. 17, 2002.

Kevin McClain converted a 4-point play that made it 30-18 with five minutes left in the first half and the Bruins (22-7, 14-2 Ohio Valley Conference) led by double figures the rest of the way.

It was Belmont’s highest-scoring game since beating Texas A&M-Corpus; Christi 117-116 in overtime on Jan. 20, 2001. The Bruins made 40 field goals - the third most in program history, and the most against a D-I opponent. They shot 61 percent overall and made a season-high-tying 16 3-pointers.

Jordan Walker led Morehead State (6-21, 2-14) with 21 points. The Eagles have lost eight in a row.

Belmont has won three in a row and 11 of its last 12.
