Tigers in a Nutshell: Towson continued its rise under Head Coach Pat Skerry by winning a school-record 25 games and advancing to the quarterfinals of the CIT last season. The Tigers will need to rebuild with the loss of four starters, including three who earned All-CAA honors, but should have a solid season.
Coach Skerry Fun Fact: He played youth hockey with NHL great Joe Sacco. Get to know more about Coach Skerry by watching his exclusive 1-on-1 interview with Blaine Taylor.
