TROY — Troy’s shooting went the way of the weather — very cold — and Chattanooga’s Matt Ryan took over down the stretch to lead the Mocs past Troy 74-68 on Tuesday night at Trojan Arena.
With Troy leading 60-56, Ryan, who scored a game-high 21 points, pulled his team within a basket. Troy’s Tahj Small hit one of two free throws then Ryan drilled a 3-pointer that tied the game 61-all with 3:20 remaining.
Chattanooga got a free throw before Troy’s Zay Williams’ dunk gave the Trojans a one-point lead with 2:21 left. Williams led the Trojans with 18 points.
