Even having Bill Murray’s son as an assistant coach (and getting surprise visits from the First Family) hasn’t been able to help the Towson Tigers this year. This past week, the team lost to Georgia State (57-42), marking their eighteenth loss of the season.
Which is bad enough. But combine that with the teams nineteen (oof) losses last year, and the Tigers are on a roll — a bad roll! — losing 37 games in a row, and setting an NCAA Division I record.
The cards are stacked against the team; they play in the Colonial Athletic Association conference, which includes (relative) powerhouses like George Mason, Old Dominion, and last year’s Final Four surprises, VCU (go Rams!!!!). Maybe the team’s new head coach, Pat Skerry, will be able to turn things around.
