Good morning Tiger Nation and welcome to the Morning Roar.

Let’s Unleash the Roar

The @Towson_SWIMDIVE had an impressive weekend at the Winter Nationals in Austin, Texas over the weekend. The 1,650-yard freestyle was a high point for the Tigers as junior Kaitlin Burke finished in 14th with a time of 16:32.95 while teammate Cassie Sorna finished in 17th with a lifetime best swim of 16:40.53.

With the lacrosse season just a few months away, @Towson_MLAX has named its captains for the 2013 season. The Tigers will be lead by senior goalie Andrew Wascavage, junior midfielder Thomas DeNapoli, junior midfielder John Paukovits and sophomore midfielder Rob Zoppo.

Hardwood Talk

It was not a good weekend for Tiger Basketball.

@Towson_WBB fell on the road in overtime to Long Island on Saturday 65-63. LIU used a layup with 29 seconds left to withstand the Tigers. Tanisha McTiller had a career high 24 points in the loss, Michelle Peebles continued her strong play chipping in 17 points and nine rebounds. The Tigers return to the court on Saturday when they travel to play UMES at 2 pm.

@Towson_MBB also had a dissapointing result when they took on UMBC. The Tigers started out slow and couldn’t make the comeback for a W. The Tigers fell 66-62. Jerrelle Benimon put in another strong performance in the loss scoring 13 points to go along with a season high 16 boards. Point guard Jerome Hairston and Mike Burwell lead the team in scoring with 14 points each. The Tigers will be on the road yet again on Wednesday when they travel up north to take on Vermont at 7 pm.

If you ordered @Towson_MBB season tickets they should be arriving at your door any day now. The tickets hit the mail over the weekend, but if you haven’t ordered yours yet there is still time, they make a great Christmas gift to any basketball fan.

The first home game for the men's team is on December 15 when North Dakota State visits the Towson Center. Fans you don’t want to miss this one as there is a special treat planned for everyone in attendance.
