ATLANTA -- Ty Gordon and Desmond Williams combined for 47 points, Williams hit critical free throws and Gordon stole a final possession as Troy rallied past two-time defending conference champion Georgia State 84-78 on Saturday to snap a three-game losing streak.
The comeback win by Troy (9-15, 5-8 Sun Belt) handed Georgia State (15-8, 8-4) it's first home loss in 15 games.
Gordon scored 24 points and Williams 23 -- both career highs -- as Troy used a late 8-0 run to grab a 79-76 lead with 35 seconds left. Kane Williams scored on a putback to make it 79-78 with 12 seconds left, but missed a potential go-ahead basket with four seconds to go.
Troy sealed the win in the final second when Desmond Williams sank two free throws, Gordon swiped the ball and Williams hit from 3 as time expired.
Troy faces South Alabama at home on Friday. Georgia State matches up against Louisiana-Lafayette on the road on Thursday.
