TOWSON HOSTS UNC WILMINGTON ON “AUTISM AWARENESS NIGHT” MONDAY
Tigers Seek Third Straight Win Over the Seahawks

TOWSON, MD. - The Towson men’s basketball team will be seeking a season sweep of UNC Wilmington on Monday as the Tigers host the Seahawks at the Towson Center at 7 p.m.

The game is part of “Autism Awareness Night” at the Towson Center. Autism groups including Itineris, Pathfinders, Autism Speaks, Kennedy Krieger, and the Hussman Center will be in attendance to provide information to fans in attendance at the game.

Members of the Towson men’s basketball team and coaching staff will be wearing special royal blue (the color of Autism Speaks) shoes provided by Under Armour.

Towson (11-12, 6-4 CAA) picked up their lone win of the year last season at home against UNCW. The Tigers also topped the Seahawks earlier this season in Wilmington, N.C.

Towson is coming off a 68-66 win at Old Dominion Wednesday night in Norfolk. Junior forward Jerrelle Benimon posted 21 points, 17 rebounds and five blocks in the victory. Benimon is one of only three players in the nation to have three games this season with 20 or more points and 15 or more rebounds.

UNC Wilmington (8-13, 3-6 CAA) has dropped three of its last four games, including a 71-56 loss at Delaware on Saturday. The Seahawks are just 1-11 away from home this season.

Monday’s game can be heard live on the Towson Sports Network with Spiro Morekas and Vince Angotti calling the action.
