    TOWSON, Md. (AP) -- Gary Neal had 26 points and seven assists and Towson extended Winston-Salem State's losing streak to 13 games with a 80-59 victory Friday night.

    Tommy Breaux added career highs with 20 points and eight rebounds for the Tigers (6-5), who broke a two-game losing streak by posting their highest point total of the season.

    Brian Fisher led the Rams (1-16) with 27 points.

    Winston-Salem State, in its first Division I season, is in the midst of its longest losing streak since a 15-game skid in 1991-'92, when the Rams finished 6-20 while in Division II. The Rams fell to 0-12 on the road.

    Dennard Abraham and Rocky Coleman scored 12 points apiece for Towson, which shot a season-high 54 percent (27-for-50) from the field.

    Neal had 16 first-half points and the Tigers put together a 15-0 run en route to a 40-28 lead at halftime. Towson never trailed after Neal's 3 from the left side provided a 7-5 lead 5:25 into the game.

    Winston-Salem State frustrated the Tigers early with a floating 1-2-2 zone and a left-wing 3-pointer by Curtis Hines cut Towson's lead to 17-16 with 8:33 remaining in the half.

    But Neal responded by sandwiching 3s around a Winston Tubbs jump-hook as the Tigers reeled off 15 unanswered points. The final two came on a pair of free throws by Neal after Rams coach Bobby Collins was assessed a technical foul.
