MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (BEASLEY)  --  Nearly halfway through the Sun Belt Conference schedule, both the Middle Tennessee State University men's and women's basketball teams are eastern division leaders.

The MTSU men's basketball team has won 22 straight regular-season games inside the Murphy Center, a steak that's spanned over a full calendar year.

Currently, the team is 7-1 holding the eastern division lead, along with a 10-0 home court record.

Led by star forward Ebony Rowe, Middle Tennessee's women's basketball is also in first place in the eastern division standings.

Rowe has reached 20 points in each of her last six games under head coach Rick Insell, the Blue Raiders women's all-time winningest coach.
