Troy destroyed UL-Monroe on the glass with a +21 rebounding differential, and that led to an easy win for the Trojans to improve to 9-6. Almost all of Troy's production came from the starting lineup, but that wasn't a problem as nobody faced tremendous foul trouble in the game. Steven Haslem led the Trojans with an excellent shooting night, as he made 4 threes and scored a game-high 20 points.

Troy missed a big opportunity to gain separation for a bye in the Sun Belt Tournament, and now they may need to win their final two home games to capture a top four seed. The Trojans led by as much as 13 in the first half, but a poor second half allowed South Alabama to win the game at home. Troy had another very quiet night from the bench, with just 10 points coming from outside the starting five.

Troy closed out the regular season with a big win against Arkansas State to finish at 11-7, which is good enough for the #2 seed in the conference tournament.

Troy didn't put up much of a fight in the first round of the CBI, getting held to 20 points in the first half and falling to FIU by 13. Of the seniors playing their final games, Rob Stone had the best performance, putting up a double double with 10/10. Steven Haslem finished another strong season of shooting the ball by going 5-11 from three.

2021-22 Roster:

Guards:
#2 Luke Linton (6-0 Sr.) - Linton had another strong season as Troy's starting point guard, and last year he increased his ability as a scorer by increasing his average to 10.5 PPG.

#21 Steven Haslem (6-1 Sr.) - Haslem has been Troy's leading scorer two years in a row, and he is likely to continue that trend as he enters his final collegiate season. Haslem does most of his work from the three point line, where has made over 80 threes in each of the last two season.

#3 Zach Petteway (5-8 Sr.) - Petteway took a step back last season as the backup point guard, as three point percentage dipped from 48% to 35%. Petteway has the ability to provide scoring off the bench, but he turns the ball over too much to be a reliable point guard.

#32 Oliver Smith (6-3 Jr.) - Smith hasn't quite realized his potential in two seasons at Troy, and last year his production off the bench slightly declined. Last year his efficiency crashed, as he only shot 30.5% from the field.

#14 Matt Kincade (6-1 So.) - Kincade played sparingly as a freshman, but he did show some ability as an outside shooter (2-5 3pt).

#15 Ron Wagner (6-2 Fr.) - Wagner is a 2-star recruit that has a chance to see significant playing time next year, but he will probably be redshirted this year with Troy having depth at the point guard position.

Forwards:
#5 Danny Thomas (6-7 Sr.) - Thomoas is a solid all around player that will spend another year in Troy's starting lineup. Although his scoring didn't increase as a junior, he did improve his shooting percentages and rebounding numbers.

#4 Jared Tart (6-8 Fr.) - Despite coming into the program as a 1-star recruit, Tart has impressed early this season, and has the chance to start at forward. Tart isn't a huge inside threat, but he is a good rebounder that can stretch the floor with his shooting ability.

#25 Kevin Watson (6-6 Jr.) - Watson hasn't done much in two years coming off the bench, but hopefully this year he can realize his potential as a great outside shooter.

#34 Eric Swift (6-6 So.) - Swift showed some potential as a scorer last year (1.7 PPG in 4.7 MPG), but has not done much as a rebounder or defender. If he continues to develop this season, he could pass Watson on the depth chart as the primary backup wing.

#11 Ben McLean (6-11 So.) - McLean sat out last year after transferring from La Salle, where he averaged just 1.1 points per game. He doesn't seem like much of a scorer, but he will be able to provide more depth in the post than Troy had last year.

#35 Jeffrey Johnson (6-6 Fr.) - Walk on who joined the team this offseason.

Centers:
#51 Mark Mouring (6-10 Jr.) - Mouring joins Troy as a JUCO transfer, and with his experience he has a chance to begin the season as the starting center. He probably won't be as good of a scorer as last year's big men, but he should be decent enough as a rebounder.

#40 Ron McGadney (6-11 Fr.) - McGadney is a 2-star recruit who is a bit of a project at this point, but he has great potential as an offensive asset around the rim. He will probably start the season coming off the bench, but if he shows early progress he could potentially play a big role as a true freshman.

#52 Kory Napier (6-9 Sr.) - Napier played 27 games off the bench out of necessity last year, but with increased depth at center he probably won't get that opportunity this year.
