The Troy basketball team takes on FAU (6-12, 2-3) tomorrow and will shake up the starting lineup a bit to try and get a hot hand or two on the floor. The Trojans have been struggling of late shooting the ball. Will Weathers, who is Troy’s leading scorer (11.4 ppg), has been slowed by an ankle injury and has scored just 14 combined points in the last three games.

The Trojans, who were once the nation’s top three-point shooting team, are now sixth after hitting just 12 long-balls in the last two games.

Troy and FAU tip at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday. Women play at 5:15.
