TOWSON MEN’S BASKETBALL ANNOUNCES CAA PORTION OF 2012-13 SCHEDULE
Tigers Will Face All But Two League Teams in Home-And-Home Series

TOWSON, Md. - The Towson men’s basketball program finalized its 2012-13 schedule with the release of its Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) slate of games. The Tigers will face every team in the league both at home and on the road with the exception of just two teams.

After completing a challenging non-conference schedule, Towson will begin the New Year with its first conference game at UNC Wilmington on January 2. The Tigers, who defeated the Seahawks last season at home, did not travel to Wilmington, N.C. last season.

Towson will remain on the road on January 5 as the team travels to defending CAA regular season champion Drexel before playing five of its next six games at home.

The Tigers will host William & Mary for their CAA home opener on January 9 and will remain at home to take on Northeastern just three days later. The matchup with the Huskies will be the only game between the schools this season.

After a January 16th road game at rival Delaware, Towson will host James Madison (January 19), Georgia State (January 21) and George Mason (January 23) during a three-game homestand.

The Tigers will then travel to the state of Virginia for games at William & Mary (January 26) and Old Dominion (January 30). The matchup against the Monarchs will be the only time the squads square off this season, ODU’s final in the CAA.

UNC Wilmington (February 4) and Delaware (February 6) will make return trips to the Towson Center Arena before the Tigers embark on a three-game road swing. During the trip, Towson will battle Georgia State (February 9), James Madison (February 13) and Hofstra (February 16).

The Tigers will wrap up the season with three consecutive games at home. Traditional league powers Drexel (February 23) and George Mason (February 27) will come to Towson before the Tigers welcome Hofstra on March 2 for the final men’s basketball game to be played in the Towson Center.
