She then converted 8-of-13 field goals and 5-of-5 free throws to score 21 points to go along with a game-best nine rebounds, a block and steal in 27 minutes against the Lady Jags Sunday.

It marks the first time in her career she has tallied at least 20 points in consecutive games, as she helped Middle Tennessee maintain its three-game lead in the East Division.

On the season, Elie averages 11.1 points and 5.4 rebounds per game. She is among the Sun Belt's overall leaders for field goal percentage (6th, 52.3), blocked shots (14th, 0.7), offensive rebounds (15th, 2.3) and scoring (21st, 11.1).

Elie has helped the Blue Raiders to a 10-1 league record and 19-5 overall mark entering this week. Middle Tennessee continues to lead the conference's East Division by three games.

The Blue Raiders return to action at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday when they travel to Bowling Green, Ky., to face Western Kentucky. The next home game for MT will be at 7 p.m. Saturday against FIU in the annual WBCA Pink Zone contest.

The Blue Raiders will wear special pink uniforms and the jerseys will be auctioned off at the conclusion of the game to raise money for breast cancer research.
