After a decade of membership in four different athletic conferences, Towson University is anticipating permanent residence in the Colonial Athletic Association. "It is very unlikely anyone is going to leave this league in the next 10 years," said Tigers athletic director Wayne Edwards yesterday at the new CAA's basketball media day at the ESPNZone. "We know this is long term." The advantages are many.
