Men's Football, Basketball Both Defeated

A Tough Weekend for MTSU Sports

MURFREESBORO, TENN. --  MTSU football fell prey to Wolves over the weekend, while the men’s basketball team suffered a heartbreaking first defeat.

Blue Raider football dropped its fourth straight game on Saturday, falling 45-19 to Sun Belt Conference leader Arkansas State. MTSU fell behind 25-2 before rallying to a six-point halftime deficit, but the Red Wolves outscored the Blue Raiders 20-0 in the second half.

The men’s basketball team had a much closer defeat, but it was still a loss. For the second straight year, the Raiders lost a double-overtime battle with Belmont, 87-84. Marcos Knight led MT with 17 points and 11 rebounds.
