    TOWSON, Md. (AP) -- Lawrence Hamm scored a career-high 29 points as Towson ended a 13-game conference losing streak by routing William & Mary 76-45 on Saturday.

    Tim Crossin added 19 points, seven assists, six rebounds and six steals for the Tigers (3-2, 1-0 Colonial Athletic Association), who had not won a conference game since beating James Madison on Jan. 19. Towson has won three of four.

    Nate Loehrke scored 10 points for the Tribe (4-3, 0-2 CAA), which has dropped four of five and three straight on the road. William & Mary was 14-for-51 from the field, a season low, and committed 23 turnovers, leading to 24 Tiger points.

    The margin of victory was the largest ever for Towson in a conference game.

    Towson, off to its best start since 1999-2000, hit 31 of 61 shots from the field. Hamm was 13-for-15 and Crossin 7-for-8, including 5-for-6 from 3-point range.

    William & Mary missed nine of its first 10 shots, finished 5-for-24 from the field in the first half and trailed 42-20 at halftime.

    Crossin hit four 3-pointers in the half, three of them in an early 20-1 Towson spree. Crossin' 3 from the right wing capped 15-0 portion of the surge for a 22-5 Tiger lead.

    The Tribe put together a 9-0 run midway through the second half, but could only trim the deficit to 60-36. Towson responded with a 12-0 burst, started by a slam dunk by Winstonn Tubbs and ended by jams by Velmar Coleman and Hamm.
