What to Know

After two games on the road, the Troy Trojans are heading back home. The Trojans and the Southern Miss Golden Eagles will face off in a Sun Belt battle at 7 p.m. ET Thursday at Trojan Arena. Troy has some work to do to even out the 1-3 series between these two since December of 2015, but a win here would be a good start.

On Saturday, Troy lost to the South Alabama Jaguars on the road by a decisive 77-60 margin.

Meanwhile, Southern Miss picked up a 67-58 win over the Texas State-San Marcos Bobcats on Saturday.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Troy is expected to win a tight contest. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.

Southern Miss' victory lifted them to 19-4 while Troy's loss dropped them down to 13-10. We'll see if Southern Miss can repeat their recent success or if the Trojans bounce back and reverse their fortune.
