Head coach Debbie Taylor (@WMCoachTaylor) enters her 14th season at the helm of William & Mary. She welcomes back 11 letterwinners, including four senior starters – including three who averaged at least 10 points per game a year ago. The Tribe is armed with the league’s top threat behind the three-point line in Janine Aldridge. She led the CAA by sinking a W&M single-season 92 treys a year ago and ranked third in the league in three-point shooting percentage (.395) and steals (2.6 spg). Emily Correal ranked eighth in the CAA in free throw shooting at 75.4 percent to help the Tribe at the line, while Jaclyn McKenna shot 51.8 percent from the field ranking third in the league in field goal percentage. The Tribe welcomes assistant coach Beth Bradley back to the CAA as she previously was the Old Dominion Director of Basketball Operations for the 2010-11 season.

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.
