Towson University's new arena opens to the public Wednesday night when the Harlem Globetrotters tip off the first of three games in three nights. The traveling basketball troupe is making a special stop - it usually tours in the United States from December to March - to make history at the nearly $70 million arena, which the school calls "the best basketball facility in the Mid-Atlantic. " What Towson officials have been less bold about, so far, is outlining how Tiger Arena may help the athletic department, and the university, raise revenue.

Mike Waddell, whose 2 1/2-year tenure as Towson's athletic director was marked both by the tremendous growth in its football and men's basketball programs and by the controversy surrounding the elimination of men's soccer and the proposed dropping of baseball, is leaving to become a senior associate athletic director at Arkansas. Waddell's departure comes a few months before the school is scheduled to open Tiger Arena and several months after Waddell found himself embroiled in an often nasty debate that ultimately reached the state legislature and was - at least temporarily - resolved with extra funding for the baseball program.

Dear Maryland taxpayer, My eldest child graduated from her public high school recently, and there was much celebration and excitement. When the 425 proud students of the Class of 2013 marched into the new Tiger Arena at Towson University in their caps and gowns, there was hardly a dry eye in the house. The customary "Pomp and Circumstance" echoed across the gym. Speeches were made. Award-winners were recognized. Diplomas were awarded and hands were shaken. And from the school principal to the valedictorians, there were heartfelt thanks given - to classmates, to teachers, to school administrators and yes, even to parents.

It's pretty safe to say that Towson University has been a PR disaster of late. From the ham-handed way it tried to cut its baseball and men's soccer teams to the knuckleheads talking about forming a White Student Union, the school's been in the news for all the wrong reasons. So let's talk about something positive today: Towson's new 5,200-seat arena is about ready to open. And it's a beauty. Before we go any further, I feel compelled to report that as of right now, it's being called Tiger Arena.

For a guy who just lived through a 1-31 season in his first year as a Division I head coach, Pat Skerry seems oddly optimistic. But for the second-year Towson men's basketball coach, staying positive is a surprisingly easy thing to do. Just steps away from his second-floor Towson Center office, construction continues on the state-of-the-art Tiger Arena , which is scheduled to open Aug. 1, 2013. Skerry says he couldn't be happier about the support his program receives from the athletic department and the university's administration.

Towson University today premiered a computer-generated flythrough tour of its planned athletics facility on TigerArena.com . The video was produced by a Boston and New York-based creative agency called Neoscape. "The video is incredible," Towson athletics director Mike Waddell said in a news release. "It lets you use your imagination and puts right in the middle of the new arena even though it is still just a drawing on the board right now. We were very fortunate to have had one of the industry's top agencies, Neoscape, involved in its production.

Four members of the Harlem Globetrotters will take turns dribbling and spinning basketballs during a 7.7 mile walk from the Inner Harbor to Towson University's new arena Monday morning. The Globetrotters -- who, according to a Reuters report, are up for sale -- will be the first sports team to play in the new 5,200-seat arena when they open a three-game set on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. Eric Nemeth, the 87-year-old organization's senior director of event publicity, said the team -- which makes an annual stop at 1st Mariner Arena around Christmas -- wanted to mark the opening of the arena with a unique event.

With a special visit from alumnus Gary Neal and a phalanx of local politicans, Towson University performed a ceremonial groundbreaking Tuesday for $68 million Tiger Arena, due to open in 2013. Although the real dirt won't be moved for another two weeks, new basketball coach Pat Skerry's roster already is undergoing changes. After signing 6-foot-5 combination guard Kelvin Amayo of Hillside, N.J., this week, Skerry has five new players headed to Towson, and more on the way. Also signing national letters of intent are 6-6 Marcus Damus of Long Island, 6-5 Deon Jones of Delaware, 6-0 Kris Walden of Richmond and 6-4 Will Adams from Philadelphia.
