Despite the struggles throughout the regular season, Towson defeated Delaware in overtime in the CAA semifinals but fell to UMass in the CAA championship game.

Circle These Dates

  • 2/23 (at Georgetown): While the Tigers had a down year last season, the Hoyas were the complete opposite. Georgetown won the Big East thanks to a group of young talent on offense including Daniel Bucaro. The Hoyas won last year’s battle by two goals and should be a good showcase between a high-powered offense against a solid defense.
  • 2/27 (vs. Loyola): The annual midweek showdown against the Greyhounds is always one of the best midweek games of the college lacrosse season. Last year’s battle was competitive for the first three and a half quarters before the Greyhounds started to pull away in the final minutes. It did help the Tigers start to turn around their season, especially from goalie Shane Brennan.
  • 3/10 (vs. Cornell in Charlotte, NC): We knew Towson would be joining Jacksonville and Penn State in this unknown weekend event in Charlotte. The other team involved is Cornell, and this will be one of the better matchups of the weekend. Jeff Teat and the really good Big Red offense will either be phenomenal or shut down if Peter Milliman doesn’t figure out a way to get Teat while being face-guarded. It’s also the first time the two teams have met in the regular season, with both meetings, which were wins by Cornell, taking place in the NCAA Tournament.
  • 3/23 (vs. Denver): Last year’s meeting out west almost favored the Tigers. It was another down to the wire game between the two teams, but Colin Rutan’s overtime winner was enough for the Pioneers to come out with a win. The good news for Towson is that they won’t have to deal with Trevor Baptiste anymore!
  • 4/13 (vs. UMass): This is a rematch of the CAA championship from last year, which was a four-goal win by the Minutemen. UMass also won their regular season meeting by the same margin. The Minutemen may have taken the torch from the Tigers as the best team in the CAA last year, but there’s always hope for Towson to take it right back.
