Towson rallies past UMBC for 10th-straight win 78-65

Eddie Keith II gained his first double-double, Zane Martin scored 15 points and sparked a 9-1 run as Towson broke open a tight game to defeat crosstown rival, Maryland-Baltimore County 78-65 Saturday and earn its tenth-straight win.

First, it was No. 5 Kentucky that struggled earlier against Vermont. Now, it's No. 3 Arizona's turn. The Wildcats are having trouble separating with UMBC early in second half (which probably means something like a 15-0 run will happen soon).

Kyle Bonagura ESPN Staff Writer 

A whole lot of good shooting is on display in Tucson, where Arizona and UMBC combined for 17 first-half threes on 28 attempts in the first half. The Wildcats were 9 of 14 from deep and shot 70 percent from the floor (21 of 30).
