    Antoine Myers had 21 points and seven rebounds for the Trojans (11-18, 6-12), who shot just 29.2 percent (19 of 65) from the floor and trailed 25-14 at intermission. Troy had a 9:39 scoreless stretch in the first half.

    Hunter Williams scored 10 points for Troy, which has lost three straight attempts to get coach Don Maestri his 500th career win.
