RICHMOND —- Time for an admission: After watching Towson play George Mason last weekend, I figured there was no chance I’d see the Tigers again for months.
After all, I wasn’t rolling into the CAA tournament until semifinal Sunday. And Towson sure didn’t seem like a good bet to stick around for long.
Yet here the Tigers are, the lowest seed to ever reach the semifinals of this tournament. Obviously, a No. 11 seed making the title game would be a record, too.
It won’t be easy. Mason is 14-0 against Towson since the Tigers joined the CAA. That includes a regular-season sweep this season, and no CAA tournament meetings.
Onto the lineups:
No. 2 GEORGE MASON (21-9)
No. 11 TOWSON (12-21)
