Tigers Return To The Road Wednesday At UMass
Towson To Play Fifth Game Away From Home Out Of Six To Begin The Season
AMHERST, Mass. - After playing its first home game of the season on Saturday, the Towson men’s basketball team returns to the road just four days later to take on the University of Massachusetts. The non-conference contest is set to tip at 7 p.m. from the Mullins Center in Amherst, Mass.
All of the action can be heard on WNST.net-AM 1570 with Spiro Morekas and Vince Angotti on the call.
Towson, which has played the ninth toughest non-conference schedule in the country thus far, is coming off a 66-46 setback against Oregon State Saturday. A bright spot for the Tigers was the play of sophomore forward Marcus Damas who registered his first career double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds against the Beavers.
UMass (5-2), which started the year 4-0, is coming off an 85-61 defeat against the College of Charleston in the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament in the Bahamas.
Chaz Williams leads the Minutemen in scoring at 14.1 points per game while Terrell Vinson leads the way on the glass averaging 6.0 rebounds a contest.
The squads have not met since UMass handed Towson an 82-55 loss in the 1993 Preseason NIT. That contest was the first ever college basketball game televised on ESPN2.
