MURRAY, Ky. (AP) Terrell Miller Jr. scored 22 points and a half-dozen players reached double figures as Murray State rebounded from a string of four losses in five games with a 102-58 blowout of Austin Peay on Saturday night.

Three of the losses were by a combined five points. Gee McGhee scored 14 points for the Racers as did Marcus Croaker and Jalen Dupree. Jonathan Stark added 13 points, all in the first half, with nine assists and Gilbert Thomas Jr. went 6 for 6 from the field to score 12 points as Murray State topped 100 points for the third time this season.

Murray State (13-13, 7-5 Ohio Valley) broke away from an early 7-7 tie with a 14-1 run and never looked back, leading 57-26 by the half and shooting 61 percent for the game. The contest is known as the Battle of the (Kentucky-Tennessee) Border and the 44-point margin is the largest since Murray State's 31-point win in 1966.

Josh Robinson scored 15 and John Murry 14 for the Governors (8-18, 4-8). Coach Dave Loos remains at 499 wins.
