    TOWSON, Md. (AP) -- Gary Neal scored 37 points, breaking his own school-record with eight 3-pointers, and Towson routed Georgia State 92-65 Saturday.

    Neal finished 8-for-13 from beyond the arc and 13-for-20 from the floor. Dennard Abraham had 14 points and seven rebounds and Tommy Breaux scored 10 points for the Tigers (13-13, 7-8 Colonial Athletic Association). C.C. Williams recorded a school-record 14 assists.

    Lance Perique scored 20 points and Leonard Mendez added 13 for Georgia State (8-17, 4-11 CAA). The Panthers have lost three straight and seven of the last eight games.

    The Tigers lost an early 8-0 lead and Justin Billingslea's layup got the Panthers to 22-21 with 9:03 left in the half.

    But Neal responded with a free throw, a three-point play and a floater, igniting the spurt that put Towson ahead 40-24. He closed out the burst with an off-balance jumper, a three-point play and a 3-pointer from the left wing.

    Neal had 28 first-half points, half of them during an 18-3 run, en route to a 50-31 halftime lead.

    Abraham scored Towson's first 10 points of the second half, six coming after Neal went to the bench after being called for a technical foul with 16:31 left in the game. Abraham's two-handed jam off Williams' inside feed made it 60-36 with 13:53 remaining.

    Towson, which enjoyed its highest point total and most lopsided win of the season, scored 22 points off 22 Georgia State turnovers. The Tigers are guaranteed their most wins since finishing 16-12 during the 1995 season.
