Bowling Green, KY (Sports Network) - T.J. Price posted a team-best 17 points as the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers held on to defeat the Troy Trojans, 65-61, in a Sun Belt Conference bout at E.A. Diddle Arena.

Also scoring in double figures for the Hilltoppers (12-11, 6-6 Sun Belt) were Aleksejs Rostov and George Fant with 14 and 13 points, respectively, the latter also claiming a game-high nine rebounds as they snapped a three-game slide.

The Trojans (9-13, 4-7) were paced by Hunter Williams with 23 points, shooting 5-of-8 behind the 3-point line, while Ray Chambers produced 18 points as the team had a two-game win streak snapped.

In the second half WKU pushed the lead to as many as nine points midway through, but had to weather a series of 3-point tries late in order to capture the four-point win.

The Trojans were outscored at the free-throw line on the night, 12-3.
