"We had a lot of people, like Rob Lewin, Marcus Millhouse and Lovell Craig, who don’t normally get a lot of minutes, come in and make something happen."

The Trojans jumped out early, taking a 24-14 lead with just over 13 minutes to go on Fletcher’s fourth three-pointer of the game.

During the run, Troy State hit six three-pointers to jump out ahead.
