TROY, Ala. (AP) - Emil Jones once again played a key role coming the bench and Troy defeated Louisiana-Monroe 64-55 Thursday night in Sun Belt Conference action.

Ray Chambers added 11 points off the bench, Hunter Williams had 10 points and Josh Warren grabbed nine rebounds for the Trojans (7-10, 2-4).
