NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Evan Bradds scored 23 points and Taylor Barnette 20 as Belmont defeated Tennessee Tech 82-70 on Saturday to stretch its Ohio Valley Conference record to 7-0.

Bradds and Barnette started a rally after the Bruins fell behind 38-35 to open the second half. Barnette hit a 3-pointer to tie and Bradds hit four of his next five shots for the Bruins (13-4, 7-0 OVC). Barnette made four 3-pointers and Bradds shot 10 for 14 with eight rebounds.

Aleksa Jugovic twice brought Tennessee Tech within a point - his 3-pointer at 12:37 making it 46-45 and free throws at 11:55 making it 48-47. But each time the Bruins answered, and began to pull away when Dylan Windler hit a 3 and was fouled, converting a four-point play.

Windler scored 15 points with 11 boards for Belmont and Amanze Egekeze scored 16 points.

Mason Ramsey led Tennessee Tech (8-14, 4-3) with 15 points and Jugovic 13 with five steals.
