Quinton Drayton scored a career-high 21 points in 13 minutes and the Towson men's basketball team cruised to a 93-66 win over Division III Wesley on Sunday.
Drayton was 7-for-10 from the field, including 3-for-5 from 3-point range. Nakye Sanders added 13 points, Solomon Uyaelunmo scored 12, Tobias Howard scored 11 and Nicolas Timberlake had 10.
The Tigers (1-1) never trailed and pulled away with two first-half runs — a 7-0 run to lead 18-8 and a 12-0 run to extend to 35-18. Towson opened the second half with another 12-0 run to lead 58-35 and had its largest lead at 74-42 near the midpoint of the second half.
Evan Anderson accounted for nearly half of Wesley's offense, scoring 31 on 10-for-19 shooting. Anderson made 6-for-13 from 3-point range and all five of his free-throw attempts.
Dartmouth 82, Loyola Maryland 80: Adrease Jackson scored 25 points and Chris Knight added 19, both career highs, to help the Big Green beat the Greyhounds.
Dartmouth (2-1) squandered an early 15-point lead and survived a tense final four minutes that had six lead changes and four ties.
Dartmouth took the lead at 81-79 on James Foye's pair of free throws with 1:29 left. Brendan Berry split a pair of foul shots to make it 82-79 with 6.4 seconds left. The Big Green fouled Loyola's Chuck Champion before he could attempt a game-tying 3-pointer. Champion made the first foul shot and missed the second on purpose. The rebound went out of bounds with the Greyhounds (0-2) retaining possession for an inbounds play with 1.2 seconds remaining.
In the final second, Brent Holcombe missed a 3-point attempt off the side of the backboard. Holcombe scored a career-high 20 points and Champion had his first career double double with 17 points and 11 rebounds.
Marist 72, Navy 48: The visiting Red Foxes (1-0) used a scorching run in the second quarter to break out a 23-point lead over the Mids (1-1) by halftime. Navy played Marist nearly even in the second half, but was unable to overcome that early deficit.
