They need just one more conference victory in three tries to wrap up the regular-season title and a first-round bye in the tournament.

In the week leading up to the East Coast Conference tournament, Towson State coach Terry Truax kept saying that he'd prefer an opening-round game over a bye. It turns out that Truax got his wish -- and his Tigers still had what amounted to a bye.There's really no other way to explain Towson's record-setting, 122-58 win yesterday that ended a two-game losing streak and advanced the Tigers (15-13) to today's semifinals against Rider. Playing against an out manned Buffalo team in its first season of Division I, the Tigers scored the most points in school history -- and produced the widest margin of victory in an ECC tournament game.

Coach Mike Gottlieb brought back six regulars and two of his best starting pitchers from last year's team, which was eliminated by Maine in the Northeast Regional.
