MOBILE, Ala. (AP) Ken Williams scored 28 points, Barrington Stevens made two free throws with four seconds left and South Alabama held off Troy 96-93 on Saturday.

In the last minute, Abdul-Aleem had a three-point play, Williams answered with a 3 but Abdul-Aleem hit a 3 with eight seconds left to make it 94-93. After Steven’s free throws, Kelton Ford missed a good look at a tying basket.

Troy made 19 of 33 shots in the second half but just 3 of 9 treys to finish 10 of 23, while South Alabama made 8 of 18 3s to finish 12 of 31 and was 22 of 26 from the line.
