    DENTON, Texas -- Kerry Hammonds II scored 18 points to lead Middle Tennessee over North Texas 70-63 on Saturday.

    Middle Tennessee (13-7, 3-2 Conference USA) shot 51 percent from the floor. Neiko Hunter scored 13 points, Jaqawn Raymond had 12 and Tweety Knight added 11.

    Jordan Williams led North Texas (11-9, 2-4) with 16 points, while Vertrail Vaughns added 11 and Maurice Aniefiok had 10.
