Towson Defends Its Home... SECU Arena
BALTIMORE, Md. (WBFF)--- Success has turned into the norm around Pat Skerry's program at Towson. Since he took over the men's basketball program in 2011, Towson's gone through an historic turnaround season, three 20-win seasons, and this year has featured the program's best start at 10-1.
That hot start was followed up by four straight road losses, two in conference play, but the Tigers have since corrected that and won two straight and sit at 12-5 (2-2 CAA) this season. The Tigers got back in the win column thanks to their impressive play at home. Towson has not lost at SECU Arena since December 31 of 2016. The Tigers currently hold a 14-game winning streak at home, which is the 10th longest active streak in men's college basketball.
"We harp on our guys, to compete you have to first start by winning at home," Skerry said. "We are deep. We are a talented group, competitive group, but challenging at times to get them to understand what it takes to be the team we all think we can be."
Towson hosts Hofstra tomorrow night at 7 at SECU Arena.
