TOWSON, Md. (AP) Jerrelle Benimon scored 21 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, and Towson defeated Morgan State 95-75 on Tuesday night.

Benimon, a senior, averaged double figures in scoring and rebounding last season when he became the Tigers' first Colonial Athletic Association player of the year. He had 20 double-doubles last season.

The Tigers rolled to their second straight easy victory to start the season after whipping Navy 72-45 last week. Their huge advantage at the line virtually accounted for the final margin. The Tigers hit 30 of 39 free throws to 11 of 21 for the Bears (0-2).
