ATLANTA (AP) — James Vincent came off the bench to score a career-high 18 points and Georgia State defeated Towson 57-42 on Saturday.

Vincent made all seven of his field goal attempts and was 4 of 4 from the foul line for the Panthers (13-4, 5-1 Colonial Athletic Association), who have won 13 of their past 14 games. The only other Georgia State player in double figures was James Fields with 11.

The Panthers held Towson, which has lost an NCAA Division I record 37 straight games, to 25 percent (12 of 48) from the field. The Tigers made only 4 of 21 shots in the first half.

Georgia State, which won its ninth consecutive home game, led by 16 points in the first half and kept the lead in double digits over the final 14 minutes.

Robert Nwankwo had 17 points, 13 rebounds and six blocks for the Tigers (0-18, 0-6).
