Windler, Belmont rally to beat Middle Tennessee 92-73
Freshman Nick Muszynski scored 18 and Grayson Murphy — a redshirt freshman — added 15 points, seven rebounds, eight assists and five steals for Belmont (2-0). Windler and Muszynski combined for 35 of Belmont's 65 shot attempts.
Windler scored eight points, including the first six, in a 15-3 run to open the second half to give the Bruins a 67-57 lead when Caleb Hollander hit a 3-pointer with 12:01 to play. Murphy made a jumper and then a layup to spark a 12-0 spurt that pushed the lead to 19 about five minutes later and Middle Tennessee (2-1) trailed by at least 16 the rest of the way.
Middle Tennessee led by as many as 11 in the first half and took an eight-point lead into the break. The Blue Raiders made just 6 of 29 (20.7 percent) from the field, including 1-of-9 3-pointers, and committed 14 of their 21 turnovers in the second half.
