Fobbs, McNeill lead as Towson shocks Northeastern 75-72

TOWSON, Md. (AP) Brian Fobbs scored 18 points and hauled down eight rebounds, Jordan McNeill tossed in 12 points and had two steals and last-place Towson shocked preseason conference favorite Northeastern 75-72 Thursday night.

The Tigers (7-14, 3-5 Colonial Athletic Association) controlled the boards 40-22, which led to 18 second-chance points and a 48-20 advantage in the paint as they sliced away a nine-point Northeastern lead in the second half, took the lead for good with about 10 minutes to play and held on.

Fobbs drove down the right sideline and whipped a two-handed pass across the court to Allen Beatrand open at the top left of the 3-point arc for a swish and a 49-47 lead. Towson never led by more than nine down the stretch, but never let Northeastern closer than three.

Vasa Pusica and Bolden Brace scored 18 each to lead the Huskies (11-9, 5-3), who saw a four-game win streak end. Shawn Occeus, who averages 10 points per game, was held to four points on 1-for-7 shooting and picked up four fouls.

Towson, which has won its last two, faces CAA leader Hofstra next.
