HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) - Zane Martin scored 23 points off the bench and Towson erased an eight-point halftime deficit to post an 86-80 win at Hofstra on Thursday night.

Rokas Gustys hit two layups in the first minute of the second half to give the Pride a 10-point lead, 44-34. Jordan McNeil gave Towson the lead with a 3-point play with 13:41 left and the Tigers never looked back.

Arnaud Adala Moto, Deshaun Morman and John Davis each added 14 points for Towson (11-9, 3-4 Colonial), and McNeil finished one point shy of that total. The Tigers shot 30 of 61 from the floor (49.2 percent), and hit half of the 10 3-pointers they launched.

Eli Pemberton scored 26 points, Deron Powers added 19 and Justin Wright-Foreman had 18 to lead the Pride. Hofstra (9-11, 1-6) shot 28 of 58 from the field (48.3 percent), including 8 of 20 from 3-point range.
