Dia Dufault had 11 points and a career-high 12 rebounds for the Terriers (5-9, 2-3), who have dropped three straight.

Boston U. opened the game with a 13-8 lead after a layup by Dufault, but Towson (1-13, 1-5) quickly tied the score and took a 16-13 lead on a three-pointer by Chapman with 9:07 left. Towson never trailed after that.

The Terriers got as close as three points four times in the second half but could not score the go-ahead point. The game had 55 turnovers, 28 by Towson.
