The FCS National Championship finalist Towson football Tigers will be honored during Monday night’s men’s basketball game.
The hard court action comes after the Tigers suffered a hard-fought loss to Delaware Saturday, 83-76. The team’s record now stands at 12-8 on the season, including a 3-2 count in CAA conference play. Tip-off against CAA rival Hofstra is at 7 p.m. at SECU Arena.
Members of the record-breaking football team will be introduced at halftime Monday night. Two of them will share their thoughts about their season and the support they’ve gotten from fans. Towson University President Dr. Maravene Loeschke and Athletic Director Tim Leonard will also speak briefly.
After a 10-2 regular season, the football team won three FCS playoff games against Fordham, Eastern Illinois and Eastern Washington to earn a spot in the national championship game against eventual champion North Dakota State in Frisco, Texas. Towson’s 13 wins were the most recorded in university football history.
Fans at Monday night’s basketball game vs. Hofstra are encouraged to wear ’80s attire and request their favorite ’80s songs via Twitter. The songs with the highest number of requests will be played.
The Jan. 27 basketball game coincides with students’ first day of classes for the spring term. Students were on winter break when the FCS championship game was played, on Jan. 4.
