The Trojans came out firing on Wednesday night, taking a 40-12 lead into the half and never looking back, trouncing CB Gran Canaria U20 83-33 in their fourth game of the summer.

"Tonight was by far our best team performance of the trip," said head coach Phil Cunningham.  "The opponent was a younger team that had plenty of size and talent, including a couple of 6'10" players.  It was good for us because this team was organized and knew what they wanted to do on both ends of the floor, as opposed to the games in Barcelona against a collection of semi-professional players.  For a college team, we are an older and experienced group, and it showed on the court tonight."

As a team, Troy shot 45.3 percent from the floor.  The Trojans struggled a bit from range, as it was their first game on a regulation FIBA court, with the 3-point line more than a foot deeper than at the NCAA level.

Tevin Calhoun led all scorers on the day with 27 points on 10-of-17 shooting.  He also led Troy with 10 rebounds.  Wes Hinton came up one rebound short of his fourth consecutive double-double, finishing the game with 14 points, nine rebounds and two steals.  Deonata Jethroe had a great game shooting, hitting 5-of-9 shots from the field for 11 points.

Hunter Williams was tremendous yet again, scoring 10 points and adding seven assists with no turnovers.  Newcomer J.C. Bonny didn't seem to mind the deeper 3-point line, hitting 2-of-3 from range and finishing with nine points.

"Our defensive intensity was at a high level tonight," said Cunningham.  "We came out and set the tone for the game with how hard we played on that end of the floor.  We've also been really pleased with how well the guys have shared the ball on offense.

"We've got one more game to go on this trip, and we're looking forward to seeing how the guys choose to finish it out.  We expect them to keep playing hard and playing together just like they have done to this point."

The Trojans wrap up their trip to Spain with one more game on Friday night in Gran Canaria, before returning to the States.
