Good morning Tiger Nation and welcome to the Morning Roar.

Let’s Unleash the Roar

@Towson_BASE took its momentum from this weekend down to College Park when the Tigers took on the Terps yesterday afternoon. The game didn’t start out the way the Tigers planned and they found themselves down 8-1 heading into the sixth inning. The Tigers got their first run of the game when Hunter Bennett doubled to left and drove in Brendan Butler, who drew a base on balls to get on. The Tigers didn’t score again until the top of the ninth inning when they would bring in two runs, but it was too little too late and they fell 11-3. The Tigers will be back in action later today when they make the short trip to UMBC to take on the Retrievers at 6:00 p.m.

Fans, you have the opportunity to vote on your favorite moment in @Towson_MGOLF and @Towson_WGOLF history. The top five moments, as voted on by the fans, will be revealed during the month of May so make sure to vote and track how your favorite moment is doing.

@Towson_FB wrapped up its spring practice last weekend with Tiger Bowl III. The Tigers still find themselves with questions heading to the summer months, mainly who will start under center for the defending two-time CAA champs. Mat Schlissel takes a look at the Tigers team and how they plan to replace a large senior class, four of which have the chance to play in the NFL, in his latest edition of Inside the Tigers’ Den.

It all comes down to this for @Towson_MLAX. Today the Tigers will face off against the Drexel Dragons in the first round of the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) tournament. The Dragons come in as the 18th ranked team in the country and are fresh off a 14-8 win over High Point. The Tigers enter play with a record of 4-2 in conference action and are coming off a 13-6 win over Saint Joseph’s. For the Tigers, this is their ninth appearance in the CAA tournament since they joined the conference back in 2002. The Tigers will be searching for their first tournament win since they defeated UMass, 13-6, in 2010. 

Three Tigers enter today’s game ranked in the top 25 in different statistical categories. Senior goalie Andrew Wascavage’s .611 save percentage is third best in the nation while his 13.80 saves per game is good enough for fifth place. Junior midfielder Thomas DeNapoli ranks 18th in the country in goals per game with 2.53. Sophomore attackman Cory Dobyns is 22nd in shooting percentage and his eight extra man goals rank him third in the country.
