The Troy Trojans (5-5) got back into the win column on Tuesday with a resounding 110-63 home win over the Southern-New Orleans (SUNO) Knights.

Troy shot 52.5 percent from the field as the Trojans rained down 14 three-pointers in the win. Troy also dominated the glass, outrebounding SUNO 53-24 and forced 17 turnovers. Troy also scored an eye-popping 50 points in the paint in the win. Troy outscored SUNO 48-37 in the first half but then ran away with the game in the second half, outscoring the Knights 62-26. As a team, Troy dished out 26 assists, more than doubling its turnovers.

“I was very disappointed with our defense at halftime, offensively, we were fine,” Troy Coach Scott Cross said. “I didn’t feel like we guarded at all. Credit to them, they did hit some shots. They got to the basket and to the free-throw line. They outplayed us in the first half. The last 15 minutes our guys really turned it on. At least we ended the game the right way. We definitely sat down and played better defense (in the second half).”
