NEWARK, Del. (AP) Brain Fobbs scored 13 points and Alex Thomas hit a jumper with 22 seconds left to help Towson rally from an 18-point deficit to beat Delaware 64-63 on Saturday night.
Tobias Howard had all his 10 points in the second half and Thomas finished with nine points and eight rebounds for Towson (6-14, 2-5 Colonial Athletic Association).
Fobbs hit the first of two free throws to trim Towson's deficit to 63-62 with 48 seconds left. He missed the second, but Thomas grabbed the offensive rebound and, after the Tigers called timeout, Howard found Thomas for the go-ahead basket. Delaware's Ryan Allen missed a jumper, grabbed the offensive rebound and was fouled with 1.1 seconds to play but missed both free throws.
Towson's Jordan McNeil hit a 3-pointer to open the scoring but Delaware scored the next 14 points and later used an 8-0 run to open a 37-19 lead with a minute left in the first half. The Tigers shot 69 percent (18 of 26) in the second half.
