After missing the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament last spring, Towson is currently tied for fourth place with Hofstra. (The top four teams in the conference standings advance to the tournament.) The Tigers (7-5 overall and 2-2 in the league) can improve their standing by defeating Drexel (5-7, 3-2) this Saturday. Coach Shawn Nadelen wouldn't go so far as to call Saturday's game a must-win scenario, but he said it's imperative that the team snap a two-game losing skid. “It's just a must-win in regards to ourselves trying to realize what we're capable of and trying to play Towson lacrosse for 60 minutes,” he said Wednesday.

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.

When his son Owen was diagnosed with autism at 18 months, Pat Skerry did not believe it. "I thought it was way too early," the Towson men's basketball coach recalled. "It could have been other things. I was not really accepting of it. " His wife, Kristen, knew otherwise. "She is the one who moved the chains on it," Skerry said. "She was really good about things, saying, 'What are we going to do next? How are we going to attack this?' She has been a superstar with it. " Now, almost four years later, Owen is increasingly more communicative and his father has grown a movement to raise awareness and funds for a once-unfamiliar cause.

They rank fifth out of nine teams in scoring (70.7), but lead the CAA in defense (59.3) as they head into Wednesday night's home game against Northeastern (5-14, 2-3). “I think our defense has been very good, and we need that to continue to be good starting tomorrow night,” coach Pat Skerry said Tuesday.
