TROY, Ala. The Troy women's basketball team used a 19-0 run midway through the second half on its way to a 94-86 win over Evansville on Sunday at Trojan Arena. Joanna Harden scored 43 points for Troy, her second 40-point game in as many weeks.

Troy (4-4) trailed 65-59 with 10:08 to go before scoring 19 straight over a five-minute span to take a 79-65 lead. Troy's defense was the story over the run as Evansville (4-5) missed nine straight shots and committed four turnovers in the five-minute span.

"It was a hard fought game," Troy head coach Chanda Rigby said. "We tried a lot of defenses in the second half and I'm proud of the girls because we finally dialed the right number and found the defense that would work."...
