Went to GoBlueRaiders.com to recap game, not there at 9:45. Went to AUM site and that small school already had recap posted so here it is.MURFREESBORO, Tenn. ----- Middle Tennessee opened the game with a 22-5 spurt in the opening eight minutes of the contest and shot 58.7 percent for the game, as it defeated the Auburn University at Montgomery men's basketball team 107-65 in the first of two exhibition games for the Warhawks this season.
AUM was led by juniors Dominique Ellis and Reshad Bickham with 13 points each, while Bickham added a game-high 10 rebounds. Sophomore Quay Davis added nine points for the Warhawks, while fellow sophomore Justin Zachary chipped in five, all from the charity stripe.
"I knew coming here that Middle Tennessee would be well coached and a very athletic team," head coach Larry Chapman said. "They really played well tonight and I expect them to have a very good season. I thought our youngsters never quit, but at the end of the day, their guys showed why they won two NIT games and 27 total games last year. I think we will come out of this better and will learn from this game. I am not necessarily satisfied with our execution, but our effort cannot be questioned. We will certainly learn from this game."
In the contest, the Blue Raiders knocked down a blistering 37-of-63 from the field, including 17 3-pointers. From behind the arc, MTSU converted 53.1 percent, hitting 17-of-32 3-point attempts.
For the game, AUM converted 21-of-54 shots from the floor, good for 38.9 percent. The Warhawks also committed 17 turnovers, leading to 22 points for the Blue Raiders. MTSU had 32 assists on its 37 baskets.
Despite facing a 6-11 center, two 6-8 forwards and two 6-7 forwards, the Warhawks held their own on the glass, finishing with just eight less rebounds than the Blue Raiders, who had a 37-29 advantage on the boards.
Leading the charge for Middle Tennessee was James Gallman, who finished with a game-high 21 points on seven 3-pointers. Raymond Cintron added 14 points on four treys, while Nieko Hunter, Bruce Massey and Kerry Hammonds each had 10 points.
The Warhawks (1-1) will return to action Thursday, November 8, when they open the home portion of the 2012-13 season by hosting Point University at 7 p.m.
"I am excited about having a home game," Chapman said. "We feel like getting back home, we will be able to build that left-hand column and get off to a better start than we did a year ago. We have a young team, so hopefully a home game will help us get a little confidence. If we can get our fans out and develop a home-court advantage, I think that will help us a lot."

Good for an exhibition, I suppose. Hopefully we can double or even triple that for the real home opener.
