Canaan's 26 helps Murray State rout Auburn

Isaiah Canaan scored 26 points, Stacy Wilson added 18 and Murray State ran past Auburn 79-59 at the Charleston Classic on Thursday night.

The Racers (2-0) will play another high-speed opponent, St. John's, on Friday for a spot in the eight-team tournament's championship game Sunday.

Auburn (1-1) will go against the host school, College of Charleston, in the consolation round.

The Tigers will need lots of consoling after this one. Murray State opened a 27-10 lead over the first 11 minutes and the margin only got wider the rest of the way.

Canaan, the Racers' star guard, had outscored Auburn by himself in the first half with 20 points as Murray State led 45-19 at the break.

Things only got worse as the Tigers trailed by as many as 36 points.
