COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Isaiah Canaan scored 18 points and No. 14 Murray State beat Tennessee Tech 69-64 on Saturday night to finish the season undefeated on the road for the first time in school history.

The victory capped the best regular season ever for the Racers (28-1, 15-1 Ohio Valley Conference), who were the last Division I team to lose this season. The Racers are one of three teams with only one loss.

Tennessee Tech (18-12, 9-7) didn't make it easy. The Golden Eagles led 61-60 with 4:54 to play when Bassey Inameti fouled Canaan with the Racers already in the double bonus.

Canaan hit both free throws to launch a run of six straight foul shots.

Jud Dillard dunked for the Golden Eagles with a minute left to cut the Racers' lead to 65-64, but Tennessee Tech didn't score again.

Kevin Murphy led Tennessee Tech with 26 points.
