The loss was the fifth in a row for the Tigers who dropped to 3-10 and 0-4 in the league. It was their eighth straight loss on the road stretching back into last season. Hofstra improved to 9-7 and 3-1 in CAA play.
The Tigers and Pride were battling back-and-forth with several lead changes and five ties until Towson let its guard down. The Tigers were enjoying a five-point lead, 30-25, when the Pride took off on a 12-0 run to grab a 37-30 advantage. Hofstra never looked back.
Chaz Williams, a 5-9 freshman guard, was the leader in Hofstra's assault, scoring 14 of the Pride's final 24 points of the half including four three-point baskets. Williams finished with 16 points, scoring just two points in the second half on a pair of free throws.
Hofstra assumed a 45-36 lead at the break.
Williams got support from freshman forward Halil Kanacevic who poured in a career high 18 points and grabbed a team high 10 rebounds.
The Pride maintained at least a nine-point lead in the second half and led by as many 19 late.
Towson is in action again this Saturday when they travel to James Madison for a 2:00 p.m. date with the Dukes. The game will be carried back to Towson on WTMD 89.7 FM and televised on Comcast SportsNet Washington.
