Villanova races away from Towson 78-44
VILLANOVA 78, TOWSON 44

By BY DAVE ZEITLIN

VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) -- James Bell scored 20 points and Villanova
rode a staunch defensive effort to rout turnover-prone Towson
78-44 on Sunday.

Three other players scored in double figures for the Wildcats
(3-0), who forced the Tigers into 24 turnovers, which they
turned into 27 points.

Jerrelle Benimon, the reigning CAA Player of the Year, was the
only player to hit double figures for Towson (3-1), scoring 11
points.

The game was part of the Battle 4 Atlantis, which stretches out
over the rest of the month.

Towson (3-1), the preseason favorite to win the CAA, came into
Sunday's contest riding a three-game winning streak to open the
season, marking the program's best start since 1972. But the
mid-major power was out of sync all night against their Big East
opponent.

Towson averaged more than a turnover per minute for most of the
first half and at halftime had nearly as many turnovers (18) as
points (20). The Tigers had been averaging just 12 turnovers per
game coming into Sunday's contest.

Villanova jumped all over the Tigers early, using an effective
press to open up a quick 14-2 lead with everyone in the starting
lineup scoring. After just seven minutes, Towson had already
committed 11 turnovers as Villanova led 18-4. And by the time
the first half ended, Villanova held a commanding 42-20 lead,
its largest of the game.

Things didn't get much better after the break for the Tigers,
who threw the ball into the stands twice in the opening minutes
of the second half. And, highlighted by a crowd-rocking putback
slam from Bell, the Wildcats put the game away for good with a
9-0 run that gave them a 57-24 lead with 12 minutes left.

Ryan Arcidiacono and JayVaughn Pinkston each scored 12 points
for Villanova, which has outscored its opponents by an average
of 27 points per game so far this season.
