Recap: Hofstra vs. Towson

Hempstead, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Jerrelle Benimon produced 22 points as the Towson Tigers slipped by the Hofstra Pride, 83-77, in a Colonial Athletic Association tilt at the Mack Sports Complex.

Joining Benimon in double figures for the Tigers (20-9, 11-3 CAA), as the team won for the eighth time in the last nine tries, were Rafriel Guthrie and Mike Burwell with 16 and 15 points, respectively.

The Pride (8-21, 4-10) were paced by Zeke Upshaw who erupted for a game-high 33 points, shooting a perfect 12-of-12 at the free-throw line, in the team's fourth straight setback. Dion Nesmith contributed 14 points, Jordan Allen 12 before fouling out and Jamall Robinson 10 points before he too picked up his fifth personal of the afternoon. Moussa Kone was a presence in the paint with eight points, 12 rebounds and six blocked shots in the setback.

Both teams shot about 43 percent from the floor in the first half, but the big difference had Towson converting 12-of-15 at the free-throw line in the period, while the Pride failed to make a single appearance at the charity stripe in the frame. As a result, the Tigers moved out to a 35-29 edge at the break.

In the second half Hofstra fought back with not only 57.7 percent accuracy from the floor, but also 17-of-21 at the line, but it simply wasn't enough as Towson made good on 21-of-26 at the stripe over the final 20 minutes of action.

The Tigers, who outscored Hofstra at the line by a 33-17 margin, turned the ball over just five times on the day.
