TOWSON, Md. – The Tigers are back on the road this week as they travel to Norfolk, Va. for Tuesday night’s Colonial Athletic Association clash with Old Dominion in the ConstantCenter. Tip off is 7:05 p.m. The game will be broadcast back to the Baltimore metropolitan area on WTMD (89.7 FM) Radio and taped for delay telecast on MASN at 11:00 p.m.
The Tigers, who are tied for 9th with Delaware in the league, are hopeful of making a stretch run in February to improve their CAA standing. Old Dominion is locked in a tie for 5th with Hofstra and James Madison.
The Tigers would like to chip away at Old Dominion’s 19-1 lead in this series which began in 1957 when both schools were Division II. Towson is 0-7 against the Monarchs at home in Towson and 1-10 in Norfolk. The Tigers only win in the series came in 2002 when they beat ODU 67-55 in Norfolk. Other than that the Monarchs have pretty much had their way with the Tigers. In the most recent meeting the Monarchs scored first and never looked back in handing the Tigers a 71-59 loss in the TowsonCenter last January. ODU shot 51 per cent for the game led by Gerald Lee’s game high 19 points to go along with 8 rebounds. ODU assumed a 31-20 halftime lead. The Tigers closed to within two points, 33-31, but the Monarchs quickly opened it up again with a 7-0 run. Junior Hairston tallied 11 points and collected 9 rebounds for Towson.
