RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- T.J. Gwynn and Eric Maynor scored five points each in a 12-0 run midway through the second half Saturday and Virginia Commonwealth beat Georgia State 73-60 in the quarterfinals of the Colonial Athletic Association tournament.
The top-seeded Rams (25-6), who never trailed, will play fourth-seeded Drexel, a 64-50 winner against Northeastern, in the semifinals Sunday. Georgia State finished 11-20.
VCU led 43-33 at halftime, but the Panthers closed to within 48-45 with 13:37 to play before Maynor and Gwynn keyed the run that gave the Rams control.
The Rams, who played much of the game without starting guard Jesse Pellot-Rosa after he injured his foot, got 34 points from their reserves.
