    BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- Courtney Lee scored 18 points as Western Kentucky beat Murray State 87-63 on Saturday at E.A. Diddle Arena.

    Tyrone Brazelton added 17 for the Hilltoppers (3-0), who forced 27 turnovers.

    "Another total team effort from our team tonight in term of total contribution," Western Kentucky coach Darrin Horn said. "I think our defense is what keyed our runs and helped us stretch our lead."

    Murray State's Tyler Holloway finished perfect from the field with 15 points on 5-for-5 shooting, including 3-for-3 from 3-point range. Danero Thomas led the Racers (1-1) with 17 points.

    It was the Hilltoppers second consecutive game of solid defensive play after forcing 29 turnovers in a win over Kentucky Wesleyan on Tuesday.
