Quick Hits:
Towson, which you can follow on Twitter @Towson_WBB, is coming off a solid 16-14 campaign last season, which was its best overall record since 2008-09. Head coach Joe Mathews (@CoachMathews_TU) graduated four strong contributors from last season but will look to build around a pair of returning starters and eight underclassmen. Tanisha McTiller secured a spot in the starting line-up last season and finished as the team’s second-leading scorer with 11.1 points per game, while leading the Tigers in steals with 48. Nyree Williams led the team with 7.0 rebounds per game, ranking 11th in the CAA, and added 1.6 blocks per outing for the sixth-best mark in the league. The Tigers will close out the non-conference season with four home contests in December before opening CAA action on Jan. 6 at Drexel.
