Troy Basketball drops non-conference game to UTSA

A four minute cold stretch in the second half was the difference as UTSA took the lead and the Trojans couldn't quite comeback in a 76-70 loss to the Roadrunners at Sartain Hall on Thursday night.

Will Weathers led the Trojans (5-6) with 23 points, 17 in the second half, and seven assists.  Alan Jones also topped out above 20 points at 21 with seven three-point baskets.

"We missed some open shots and could've built a good lead," said head coach Don Maestri.  "They have great anticipation in their zone, but we had a chance to really break them down with some open shots that we just didn't hit."

Melvin Johnson III led UTSA (6-5) with 25 points including 6-of-7 from deep.

The Trojans seemed to figure out UTSA's zone defense in the first half as they hit nine three-point shots on 22 attempts, but the four-minute scoreless stretch in the middle of the second half was the difference.

The Roadrunners made 53.3 percent (8-of-15) from deep and 52.0 percent (26-of-50) from the field while the Trojans shot 39.0 percent from both the field (23-of-59) and beyond the arc (16-of-41).

The Trojans will return to the floor next week when they begin Sun Belt play at Denver on Thursday, December 29, before traveling to North Texas on Saturday, December 31.
