A Brand New Season: The Tiger women's basketball team kicks off its Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) schedule on Thursday, Jan. 9. Towson travels to Hofstra for a 7 p.m. game.

Series History: Towson opens Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) play tonight with a trip north to face Hofstra. Thursday’s game will be 56th game in the all-time series between the two schools.
Hofstra holds a slim 28-27 edge in the match-up and had won four straight in the series prior to last year’s contest.
Towson earned a 69-60 win when the two squads met last year. Tanisha McTiller  and Dominique Johnson combined for 42 points to lead the Tigers to the victory.

Double Your Pleasure: Redshirt junior forward LaTorri Hines-Allen had a big day in the Tigers’ win at Coppin State. Hines-Allen had a career-high 23 points, 13 of which came in the second half to help the Tigers hold the lead. She added 11 rebounds for her third “double-double” of the year. The Tigers have now gotten 10 “double-double” performances this season (Tanisha McTiller-4, Hines-Allen-3 and Nyree Williams-3). The 10 “double-doubles” are the most by any team in the CAA this season.

Taking Charity: Sophomore guard Dominique Johnson was a perfect 4-for-4 from the foul line in Saturday’s win over Coppin State. Johnson has now made 27 of her 31 opportunities from the charity stripe this season for an 87.1% free throw percentage. She enters play this week leading the CAA in free throw percentage.

Keep It 60 Below: The Tigers turned in a strong defensive performance for the second straight game, holding Coppin State to just 59 points in the contest. Towson improved to 4-2 this season when it holds an opponent to 60 points or less in a game. Since the start of the 2011-12 season, the Tigers are 24-11 when they hold an opponent to 60 points or less in a game.

Up Next: The Tigers return home following Thursday's game to being a three-game homestand. Towson hosts Northeastern on Sunday, Jan. 12 at 2 p.m. in SECU Arena.
