    NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Drew Hanlen scored 17 points, Kerron Johnson added 15 and Trevor Noack 11 as Belmont defeated Miami (Ohio) 83-72 on Thursday.

    The point totals for Hanlen, Johnson and Noack were all new career highs as the Bruins (10-3) improved to 8-0 against teams from outside the state of Tennessee.

    Belmont trailed 19-18 with 10:11 left in the opening half, but went on a 10-0 run to take a 28-19 lead. Belmont ended the half on a 26-10 run to take a 44-29 haltime lead.

    The RedHawks (5-8) started the second half on a 11-2 run to pull within six, 46-40, and trailed by as few as five, 72-67, with 2:53 remaining.

    Nick Winbush scored 19 and Antonio Ballard added 18 for Miami, which has lost three straight.

    Belmont's only losses this season have come against ranked opponents inside the state of Tennessee. The Bruins have lost twice to then-ranked Tennessee and to No. 24 Vanderbilt.
