Charleston, SC (SportsNetwork.com) - Jerrelle Benimon registered a double- double with 21 points and 11 rebounds as the Towson Tigers captured a 72-57 win over the College of Charleston in Colonial Athletic Association play at TD Arena.

Also scoring in double figures for the Tigers (12-6, 3-0 CAA) were Mike Burwell with 18 points, Rafriel Guthrie 14 and Four McGlynn 11 points as Towson extended its win streak to five in a row.

The Cougars (10-9, 2-2) were paced by Willis Hall who tallied 20 points and cleared a game-high 12 rebounds as the team fell for the second time in three games. Adjehi Baru came up a rebound shy of his own double-double as he poured in 15 points for the hosts.
