NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Drew Hanlen scored 15 points, all coming on 3-pointers, to lead Belmont over Troy 78-55 Thursday night for the Bruins' seventh win in eight games.

Ian Clark and J.J. Mann added 14 points apiece for Belmont (7-3), which shot 14 of 30 (46.7 percent) on 3-pointers in the win. Clark hit four 3s, while Mann knocked down two of his own.

The Trojans were just 3 of 16 (18.8 percent) from long range.
