CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Middle Tennessee women's basketball held Charlotte to its lowest point total of the season and a 26 percent shooting from the field in a 65-41 road defensive clash Thursday night.

The Lady Raiders (15-2, 8-0) turned in a season-low 65 points but held the 49ers (7-10, 3-5) to four points in the first quarter and seven in the fourth.

Kseniya Malashka, who picked up where she left off against UAB, scored eight of Middle Tennessee's 11 unanswered points to close out the first quarter. Charlotte did not score a basket in the final 5:21 of the opening frame.
