    DELAND, Fla. (AP) -- Jacob Hazouri scored 15 points and Troy used a big run midway through the game to help it defeat Stetson 56-53 on Friday night.

    Bobby Dixon, Ryan Heck and Corey Hornsby each had 10 points for Troy (4-9, 2-2 Atlantic Sun), which won for the third time in four games.

    Karl Hollingsworth had 14 points, Anthony Register 13, E.J. Gordon 12 and Djordjic Borislav 10 points and 10 rebounds for Stetson (4-7, 2-2).

    Troy trailed 19-18 late in the first half, before using a 16-2 run to build a 34-21 lead -- enough of a margin to hold off a late Stetson rally.

    The Hatters were down 49-37 with 4:17 to play, but clawed within 51-49 with 38.6 seconds left. Heck then made four straight free throws to seal the win for Troy.

    Stetson held a 46-30 rebounding edge, but turned the ball over 19 times and only shot 3-for-8 from the foul line.
