TROY, Ala. -- Emil Jones scored 18 points, grabbed eight rebounds and dished out five assists -- both team-highs -- in Troy's 66-62 win over Alabama State on Sunday in a matchup between nonconference foes.

Alabama State (0-5) led the majority of the first half and by 29-23 with 2:01 until intermission. Troy used a 7-2 run to close the gap to 31-30 at halftime and took a 38-35 lead behind 3-pointers from Jones and Wright on back-to-back possessions.

Troy (4-2) controlled the second half, as the Trojans stretched their lead to as much as nine and led by eight points three different times in the half.
