George Mason 73, Towson 44

TOWSON, Md. (AP) -- Folarin Campbell had 18 points and nine assists and George Mason routed Towson 73-44 Thursday night for its 10th straight victory over the Tigers.

Will Thomas added 16 points for the Patriots (8-7, 2-3 Colonial Athletic Association), who have won two straight. George Mason improved to 22-8 all-time against Towson (7-8, 2-3).

Gary Neal led the Tigers with 18 points.

Towson sustained its most lopsided setback of the year and its worst home loss since an 82-47 defeat to Virginia Commonwealth in 2002-03. The Tigers have dropped three of four.

George Mason, the worst 3-point shooting team in the CAA, converted nine of 19 attempts from beyond the arc. Campbell matched a career-high with four 3-pointers.

Campbell had 10 points in the opening 20 minutes as George Mason built a 33-19 halftime lead.

With the Patriots' Dre Smith shadowing him through the first half, Neal couldn't integrate himself into the Towson offense and managed only four points on 2-for-9 shooting. Neal entered the game averaging a conference-high 24.6 points, the fifth-best total in Division I.

The Patriots used a 12-2 run midway through the first half to go up 27-15. Jordan Carter started the spree, blocking a Rodney Spruill shot and scoring on an uncontested layup, and consecutive 3-pointers by Smith and Campbell capped it.

Thomas' 3-point play with 14:50 remaining in the game ignited an 11-0 Patriot surge that featured an alley-OOP slam dunk by Gabe Norwood off a lob pass from Campbell.
