MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The 60th-ranked Middle Tennessee men's tennis team won the doubles point and all six singles matches en route to a 7-0 victory over Indiana State Monday afternoon at the Buck Bouldin Tennis Center.

The Blue Raiders evened their season mark at 5-5 and next play at the National Blue-Gray Tennis Classic in Montgomery, Ala., this weekend.
