The Colonial Athletic Association tournament may have been short on fans, but the four-day event ended in a way organizers surely loved: with a frantic, late-game comeback and an iconic image of fans bounding onto the Baltimore Arena floor in celebration. Conference officials hope that the final scene - of Delaware celebrating its first CAA tournament title and first NCAA tournament berth since 1999 -- will be replayed and endure in the minds of Baltimoreans. They want those final images to help sell the tournament when it returns to Baltimore next season.

A year after Towson found itself as the No. 3 seed in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament before embarking on upsets of second-seeded Drexel and top-seeded Penn State to qualify for the NCAA postseason, the Tigers (8-6 overall and 2-3 in the league) are the No. 3 seed again with a semifinal date on Wednesday at Drexel (10-4, 4-1). It sounds like a case of déjà vu, and coach Shawn Nadelen said he hasn't had to revive last year's memory with the players. “The guys are kind of reminding themselves,” he said on Monday.

Towson was the preseason favorite to win the Colonial Athletic Association. Delaware was a game better in the regular season. So which team is the favorite at this weekend's CAA tournament at Baltimore Arena? Ken Pomeroy, the incomparable college basketball statistician and blogger, says Towson. On his kenpom.com blog, Pomeroy breaks down the odds of each team reaching each round of the CAA tournament . No. 2-seeded Towson has a 83.4 percent chance of winning its quarterfinal against James Madison, a 60.4 percent chance of reaching the final and a 33.5 percent chance of cutting down the nets Monday night and earning the league's automatic bid to the NCAA tournament . Pomeroy gives Delaware a 30.2 percent chance of winning it all. "The semi-home status I bequeath on Towson is enough to give the Tigers a slight edge over regular-season champ Delaware," he writes.

Towson (8-6) still doesn't know the identity of its opponent in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament. There are a number of scenarios, but the team will be either the No. 3 or 4 seed, which means an away game at either second-seeded Drexel (9-4) or top-seeded Hofstra (10-3). But the Tigers do know that they do not have to play until April 30, and coach Shawn Nadelen said the players will have Wednesday and Thursday off to re-charge and re-focus after Tuesday night's 15-9 loss to No. 9 Penn at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson.

A Penn State spokesman confirmed that CAA athletic directors have voted to bar Penn State from participating in the league championship for the 2014 season, their last as a conference member before joining the Big Ten in men's lacrosse for the 2015 season. Sources said the vote came at the suggestion of the league's men's coaches. The move effectively eliminates the Nittany Lions from contention for the league's automatic qualifier in 2014, leaving their only path to the NCAA tournament as at-large qualification.

After upsetting No. 4 seeded George Mason in the CAA baseball tournament this morning, No. 6 seeded Towson plays again tonight. Freshman Brendan Butler was 3-for-3 and scored four runs and sophomore Zach Fisher was 3-for-6 and knocked in two runs in the Tigers' 16-8 victory over the Patriots. Towson, which lost to Delaware in 12 innings Wednesday night, will face the lowest-seeded one-loss team in the next round this evening. Towson (27-30) eliminated George Mason (33-24) from the tournament.

Baltimore's 1st Mariner Arena will host the Colonial Athletic Association men's basketball tournament for three years, starting in 2014, officials from the city and league confirmed Wednesday. The city now offers a centralized location for the conference, CAA commissioner Tom Yeager said, and more amenities than long-time host Richmond. "It's closer for many of our fans," Yeager said after a news conference at Visit Baltimore's offices downtown. "And while we hope they're there to watch basketball, we realize that they're focused on having a good weekend.

As Hofstra coach Joe Mihalich directed the Pride's offense in the early minutes of his team's game with top-seeded Delaware, Blue Hens coach Monte Ross looked on with dismay. The game was less than 10 minutes in, but the fans inside Baltimore Arena could already sense an upset. But in the second-half, it was Mihalich raising his voice on the sideline. Despite falling behind 28-19 10 minutes into the first half, the Blue Hens used an 11-2 run to start the second-half to fend off a pesky Hofstra squad 87-76.

Unlike last season, Towson will not have to wait until the final weekend of the regular season to find out if it has qualified for the Colonial Athletic Association tournament. Despite Saturday's 14-11 loss to No. 15 and league rival Drexel, the Tigers clinched the No. 3 seed in the conference tournament. “Obviously, we're excited,” coach Shawn Nadelen said Monday afternoon. “We've played decently within the CAA this year, and we've earned enough wins to qualify us for postseason play.

Towson has won 14 of 21 games in this series, but Penn State has won three of the last four meetings. Four of the last five contests between the Colonial Athletic Association rivals have been decided by two goals or less. Penn State (4-6 overall and 0-2 in the conference) is reeling, having dropped three straight games. The team is 2-2 away from State College, Pa., and has lost back-to-back road games for the first time under coach Jeff Tambroni. An offense that ranks 22nd in scoring at 10.8 goals per game is headed by senior attackman Shane Sturgis, who ranks 17th in Division I in average points at 3.9. No. 20 Towson (8-3, 2-1)

Towson's 6-5 win over No. 18 Massachusetts gave the Tigers a substantial lift in the Colonial Athletic Association standings. With an 8-3 overall record and a 2-1 mark in the league, they are tied with Drexel (7-4, 2-1) for second place in the CAA. But coach Shawn Nadelen said he has better things to address than the team's position in the race for four berths in the conference tournament. “In the conference, I just know that if we win games, we get into the playoffs, and in the playoffs, anything can happen,” he said Monday morning.

Towson's story was neatly summarized on the black T-shirts players wore during warm-ups. “Started from the bottom,” the shirts said in block lettering, along with “1-31,” the team's record two seasons ago. Left unsaid was that this moment - the second-seeded Tigers' opening game in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament Saturday night at Baltimore Arena - offered the promise of the next significant step in their ascent. Towson hadn't won a CAA tournament game in four years until it wore down foul-riddled James Madison and prevailed, 80-71, behind 18 points by two-time CAA Player of the Year Jerrelle Benimon and four 3-pointers and 21 points by sophomore guard Four McGlynn.

Towson defender Julie Ondrako looks forward this weekend to playing one -- and maybe both -- of the teams the Tigers lost to during the Colonial Athletic Association regular season. In the four-team CAA tournament at top-seeded William and Mary, the Tigers open tomorrow night with George Mason. If they get by the Patriots, they could face No. 1 seed William and Mary on Sunday. The Tigers (11-5), who finished 5-2 in the CAA and earned the third seed, let a four-goal lead slip away and lost to No. 2 seed George Mason, 13-10.

Pat Skerry didn't sound surprised that sophomore guard Four McGlynn had his best game in a Towson uniform in Saturday night's Colonial Athletic Association tournament quarterfinal victory over James Madison. As the Tigers coach reminded the media, the Vermont transfer has won a conference tournament before and played two games in the NCAA tournament. McGlynn also had the advantage of having been in Baltimore Arena previously, though for a far different reason than basketball.
