Towson’s CAA run ends with tough loss to George Mason

March 08, 2009 | Drew Forrester

Pat Kennedy’s team was in it all the way until the end, but it wasn’t enough as George Mason moved on to the CAA Championship Game with a 56-48 win over Towson University in Richmond, VA, earlier tonight.

Towson defeated Drexel on Friday and Northeastern on Saturday to move into tonight’s semi-final against the Patriots and it looked like the Tigers might pull another upset as they led throughout a good portion of the second half.  

Cam Long’s back-breaking 3-pointer from 25 feet with a half-minute to play was the big blow for George Mason, who will now face VCU in Monday’s title game.
