    TROY, Ala. (AP) -- Kevin Kanaskie hit two free throws with four seconds left to help Middle Tennessee to a 65-64 win over Troy Wednesday night.

    Troy (8-9, 1-5 Sun Belt Conference) pulled ahead 64-63 with 19 seconds to go on a pair of free throws by O'Darien Bassett. Then Justin Jonus was called on a foul under the basket, sending Kanaskie to the line for the game-winning shots.

    Troy took an early 4-0 lead before Middle Tennessee (7-9, 4-2 SBC) pulled ahead on a 14-2 run over the next three minutes. The Blue Raiders built a 25-16 lead before Troy made a run cutting the lead to 27-26 in the first half.
