ARLINGTON, Texas The Troy women's basketball team won its second straight game with an 85-62 win at UT Arlington on Wednesday. Troy held the new Sun Belt member to 17 percent shooting in the first half and cruised down the stretch at the College Park Center.

Troy (6-12, 2-5) was led by Joanna Harden's 32 points, including 23 in the first half as Troy built an early lead. Ashley Beverly-Kelley chipped in 16 points with four steals as Troy forced 21 Maverick turnovers.

Just like in last weekend's win over UL Lafayette, Troy's first-half defense was smothering, holding UT Arlington to 6-of-36 from the floor in the first half. The Mavericks missed 22 straight field goals over a 13-minute span as the Trojans built their lead to as many as 19 in the opening frame.

UT Arlington's strength entering the game was a pair of strong post players in Briana Walker and Desherra Nwanguma, but the Trojans held the pair to a combined nine points and 3-of-14 shooting in the first half.

Nwanguma responded in the second half and finished with 20 points and 15 rebounds, but it wasn't enough as Troy held UT Arlington to 29 percent (20-of-70) shooting on the night and ran away at the end with the 23-point win.

This has been a strange and frustrating BB season so far. The men got hot and the women were cold, now the women got hot and the men are cold. Hoping to get both on a hot streak at the same time.
