Troy 56, Stetson 53

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.
