With a 7-7 overall record and a 3-2 mark in the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA), Towson is locked in as the No. 3 seed in the conference tournament. The team can't catch No. 15 Drexel (10-3, 5-1) for the No. 2 seed and owns the head-to-head tiebreaker over Hofstra (7-6, 2-3) for the No. 3 spot. But that doesn't mean that the Tigers are planning on coasting in Saturday's regular-season finale against St. Joseph's at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson. “Any game you compete in - I don't care if it's T-ball or lacrosse - you want to win, and that's important for us as a program,” coach Shawn Nadelen said Monday.

One of Towson's positions of strength in 2015 should be a midfield that welcomes back three starters in juniors Greg Cuccinello (20 goals and nine assists) and Justin Mabus (10 G, 17 A) and freshman Ryan Drenner (12 G, 10A). That group could be even stronger if Andrew Hodgson returns from injury, and coach Shawn Nadelen said Hodgson, a senior who has one more year of eligibility remaining, is on pace to do just that. “He should be back next year, and that just bolsters our midfield when we return all those guys and get Andrew back in the mix,” Nadelen said.

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.

Here is the second installment of a series that checks in with the seven Division I programs in the state to give a glimpse into the past and the future. Teams are scheduled to appear according to the chronological order in which their seasons ended. Monday's visit was with Mount St. Mary's. Tuesday's visit is with Towson. REVIEW The good: The Tigers (8-7 overall and 2-3 in the Colonial Athletic Association) opened the season with a slow start that was punctuated by a bewildering 20-4 loss to Loyola on Feb. 19 that had even coach Shawn Nadelen questioning the team's mettle.

Shawn Nadelen found what he was looking for in No. 19 Towson's 9-1 victory over Mount St. Mary's on Saturday as the defense did not surrender a goal until midway through the fourth quarter and the offense was productive with nine goals and 40 shots. But the coach also did his best to keep the players grounded after beating a Mountaineers squad that graduated 95.5 percent of its goal scoring and has been further depleted by injuries this season. “You're excited about the win. Any win in Division I lacrosse is a good one,” Nadelen said Monday evening.

Last year, Pat Conroy demonstrated his versatility for Towson, lining up as a long-stick midfielder and taking faceoffs. He did the same thing in the team's 8-7 decision over Georgetown on Saturday, winning 5-of-9 draws and picking up three ground balls. But Tigers coach Shawn Nadelen said he would prefer to have the sophomore concentrate on playing defense rather than taking faceoffs. “I'd rather have him stay in our defensive end of the field and not try to tax him too much as a faceoff guy,” Nadelen said Thursday.

No one knows how No. 18 Towson will react after being dealt a 15-8 thumping by No. 13 Johns Hopkins on Saturday at Homewood Field . Could the Tigers' first loss of the season impact them negatively as they prepare to visit No. 14 Loyola Wednesday at Ridley Athletic Complex? "Hopefully not too much," coach Shawn Nadelen said Monday morning. "I think our guys understand that we were our own worst enemy out there on the field. Hopkins is a team that is very good, and they capitalized on a lot of our mistakes and miscues and issues.

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.

The first month of the regular season is in the past, and Towson has yet to field its full-fledged offense due to the continued absence of Andrew Hodgson. The senior midfielder who registered 27 goals and 14 assists last year is still sidelined by an undisclosed ailment, and coach Shawn Nadelen said his status remains unchanged. Redshirting Hodgson and preserving his senior year for 2015 may be an option, but Nadelen said it is not something being considered right now. “We will if we get to that point,” he said.

Shawn Nadelen wasn't happy about Towson's 12-6 loss to No. 5 Johns Hopkins Saturday night, but he reserved a good portion of his anger for the behavior of some of the players representing his alma mater. The Tigers coach was visibly enraged after Blue Jays senior defenseman Chris Lightner was flagged with 2:43 left in the fourth quarter for an illegal body check that was a non-releasable, one-minute penalty. During a timeout, Nadelen and Johns Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala exchanged some words, and Nadelen said after the contest that he was irked by the way several of Pietramala's players were reacting to Lightner's hit. “I was very upset they were celebrating a very potentially lethal hit,” said Nadelen, a former defenseman who played for Pietramala in 2001, his senior year.

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.

Sophomore Ben McCarty has started in the midfield for Towson in the past two games, and coach Shawn Nadelen confirmed that the South Carroll graduate will open Wednesday's Colonial Athletic Association semifinal at No. 17 Drexel with junior midfielders Justin Mabus and Greg Cuccinello. Nadelen said the coaches bumped McCarty up to the first line and moved freshman Ryan Drenner (Westminster) down to the second unit to give the offense more options. McCarty has scored one goal on seven shots in his two starts, while Drenner has scored two goals on four shots.

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.

The Towson men's lacrosse team's hopes for a win against a high-profile opponent and some momentum heading into the Colonial Athletic Association tournament fizzled in a span of 4 minutes andd 2seconds Tuesday night. That's how long it took for No. 9 Penn to turn a two-goal lead into a six-goal cushion early in the third quarter of an eventual 15-9 thumping of the Tigers on Tuesday before an announced 446 at Johnny Unitas Stadium. The game was delayed nearly two hours by lightning midway through the third quarter.

Towson and Penn have met just twice, with each team winning once. Since opening the season with six consecutive wins at home, Towson has dropped two straight. Penn is 3-2 on the road this season. No. 9 Penn (7-3) has won four straight games and is assured of a berth in the Ivy League tournament. The offense is in the middle of the Division I pack after averaging 9.8 goals so far this year. Senior midfielder Zack Losco leads the team in points with 24 and is the only Quakers player to have at least one point in every game this year.

I can't say I blame Towson University coach Shawn Nadelen for looking so depressed after the Tigers lost, 8-1, to Penn State on Saturday night. I've been covering college lacrosse since 1987, and that was one of the worst, if not the worst, performance I have ever seen from a team, regardless of division. The Tigers couldn't pitch and catch. They got outhustled and allowed the Nittany Lions to push them around the field. Towson's performance was on the level of a 13- or 14-year-old team in the Maryland Youth Lacrosse Association's B bracket.

Senior attackman Thomas DeNapoli led all scorers with five points on four goals and one assists in No. 18 Towson's 11-8 season-opening victory over High Point. He also got some help from an unlikely source. Freshman Joe Seider recorded three goals and one assist in his collegiate debut for the Tigers. The Hereford graduate scored three of the team's seven goals in the second half, but coach Shawn Nadelen did not seem surprised by the rookie's outburst on his 19th birthday. “We knew Joe would be in position to score goals and make plays, and I'm glad that he capitalized on it,” Nadelen said Tuesday.

Towson accomplished its preseason objective of qualifying for the Colonial Athletic Association tournament. But as the No. 4 seed, the Tigers get the unenviable assignment of trying to upend top-seeded Massachusetts in Wednesday's semifinal round in Amherst, Mass. The Minutemen are the only remaining unbeaten team in Division I, going 13-0 overall and 6-0 in the conference. They routed Towson, 14-3, in Amherst on April 7. The odds would not appear to be in the Tigers' favor, but coach Shawn Nadelen predicted that the players would not be intimidated by the task before them.

No. 20 Towson's rise to a tie for second place in the Colonial Athletic Association may have more to do with the defense's performance than the offense's woes. In the team's past two games, the defense has surrendered an average of 7.0 goals while racking up a 2-1 league record. By comparison, the offense has scored just 6.5 goals per game. The Tigers (8-3 overall) did come away with a decision over then-No. 18 Massachusetts on Saturday, but scored just six goals for the contest and zero goals in the fourth quarter.
