Varnado leads Troy past Texas State 59-53 for Sun Belt title

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Jordon Varnado struggled with his shooting for much of the game Sunday, but he came through when Troy needed him most.

He finished with 18 points and 12 rebounds and the Trojans defeated Texas State 59-53 in the championship game of the Sun Belt Conference Tournament at Lakefront Arena.

Sixth-seeded Troy (22-14) advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2003 after winning its third game in three days and fourth in the tournament.
