With three more games left on the Colonial Athletic Association slate and tied with No. 11 Penn State for third in the league with identical 2-1 records, Towson is in a fairly comfortable position with regards to qualifying for the conference tournament.
But with the aforementioned Nittany Lions visiting Johnny Unitas Stadium Saturday night, coach Shawn Nadelen said the weight of the team’s postseason future is noticeable.
“This is playoff lacrosse for Towson,” he said Monday. “We’ve got to make sure that we’re preparing to put our best team on the field to compete and win, and we have to execute that way. Knowing that we want to make that CAA Tournament, these next three games are huge for us, and the only one that matters is the one in front of us. Going up against Penn State who’s in the same boat as us, everything’s going to be even until the whistle blows at 7:30.”
