HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Jaqawn Raymond scored 17 points, including the game-winning 3-pointer, to lift Middle Tennessee to a 56-53 win over Marshall on Saturday.

Trailing 47-40 in the second half, Middle Tennessee (21-7, 11-2 Conference USA) retook the lead with an 11-2 run capped by a Kerry Hammonds II trey that made it 51-49 with just under 3 minutes to play. Marshall (9-19, 3-10) tied the game twice down the stretch on Kareem Canty jumpers, setting up Raymond's game-winning 3 - his fifth trey of the game - fired just ahead of the shot clock with 19 seconds left.
