GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Scooter Alexander and Ralph Blalock each had 17 points as Towson State took advantage of 18 turnovers and poor shooting to hand UNC-Greensboro a 62-56 Big South Conference defeat last night.

UNC-Greensboro (9-6, 5-2) never led as turnovers and season-low 30.6-percent shooting repeatedly thwarted attempts to recover from a 7-0 deficit at the start of the game.

Towson State's (9-7, 4-2) biggest lead -- 18-6 -- came with 10:59 left in the first half.

The game marked the first meeting between the two in UNC-Greensboro's first year in the conference.

Towson State shot 43.3 percent led by Blalock's 8-for-12 shooting from the field. The Tigers got 11 rebounds from John James and 10 from Stevie Thomas, but were out-rebounded 46-39.
