CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) Zane Martin scored 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting, and Williams Adala Moto had 12 points, five rebounds, five assists and two steals to help Towson beat Northeastern 82-54 on Saturday night in a Colonial Athletic Association Tournament quarterfinal.

Brian Starr also scored 12 points and Jordan McNeil added 10 for third-seeded Towson (20-12), which plays No. 2 seed College of Charleston in the semifinals on Sunday
