Troy defeated FIU on Saturday. When they play hard, they can win.


TROY, Ala. - The Troy University Trojans used a 26-point night from senior O'Darien Bassett to end a five-game losing streak with a 66-59 victory over Florida International University Saturday night at Trojan Arena.

Bassett was 9-of-14 from the floor, 3-of-4 from behind the arc and 5-of-6 from the free throw line in the victory. But, according to head coach Don Maestri, his victory was a total team effort.

"We had guys step up tonight in the clutch," Maestri said. "Tom Jervis played well inside, really went hard to the basket and made some plays. Kenny Ware, Justin Jonus made some plays for us down the stretch, and got fouled getting two rebounds and was able to convert on all of his free throws. That is important because it shows that we can play without O'Darien and that is what it is going to take down the stretch when teams try and shut him down on a nightly basis."
