    MONROE, La. -- Hunter Williams scored 24 points as Troy hammered Louisiana-Monroe hard in the first half and coasted through the second en route to a 61-46 victory on Saturday night.

    Williams scored 8 points in Troy's 12-3 sprint into halftime -- forcing 13 first-half turnovers and building a 38-18 lead.

    The wire-to-wire triumph puts Troy (10-18, 5-11 Sun Belt Conference) one game up with three to play on Texas State (which lost Saturday) in the scrap for the eighth and final tournament seed. Louisiana-Monroe (9-15, 6-10) is clinging to the seventh seed.

    Williams hit 6 of 10 3-point shots (the Trojans were 9 of 25 on 3s overall) and Tevin Calhoun scored 15 points. Calhoun and Williams scored the last 18 points for Troy -- Williams on back-to-back-to-back 3s.

    Nick Coppola led the Warhawks with 10 points.
