Jamie Squire

A 15-point lead at halftime proved to be more than enough for the Towson Tigers to put away the Kennesaw State Owls on Sunday

The Kennesaw State Owls were unable to surmount a 15 point deficit on Sunday evening, falling to Jerrelle Benimon and the Towson Tigers at a neutral location by the score of 69-63 in a tale of two halves.

The Owls allowed the Tigers to open the game with a 10-2 run, which set the tone for both teams in the remainder of the first half. The Owls allowed 36 points to score in the first half while scoring just 21, heading into halftime with a 15-point hole.

Unlike the first half, Kennesaw State opened the second half with fantastic defensive play, including holding Towson scoreless from 17:15 to 11:57 remaining in the second half. Despite outscoring Towson in the second half, it wasn't enough for the Owls.

Aaron Anderson scored 10 points and collected 7 boards for the Owls, but it was Jerrelle Benimon who starred in the game, registering 18 points, 13 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 blocks.

Now 1-4 on the season, the Owls will head home and prepare to host the visiting (1-2) Georgia Southern Eagles on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. ET. It will be Kennesaw State's first home game of the season.
