CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - Antoine Myers led four double-digit scorers with 13 points and Troy defeated Chattanooga 68-61 Monday in a nonconference affair.
Myers also led the Trojans (2-2) with four assists. Hunter Williams and R.J. Scott each had 12 points for Troy, and Deonata Jethroe had 11. Ray Chambers pulled down 10 rebounds.
There were four lead changes in the second half after the Trojans left the locker room up 30-25. The Mocs (1-3) opened on a 7-0 scoring run to go up 32-30, but relinquished the advantage when Williams drained a 3 to put Troy up 35-34 with 16:31 left. Gee McGhee hit a jumper for Chattanooga 49 seconds later as the Mocs again leapt ahead.
Chattanooga maintained the lead until Scott drained consecutive 3-pointers to pull even at 48-all, and after a dunk by Myers put Troy up 50-48, the Trojans began to pull away.
