The Towson Tigers host the North Carolina-Wilmington Seahawks in Colonial action.
The North Carolina-Wilmington Seahawks have a big offense and have shown some defensive ability and if they can get both on the same page the rest of the CAA will be taking notice. The Seahawks had won four in a row before Northeastern slowed things down in a 65-63 victory on Saturday. The Huskies made a five point first half lead hold up with 40% shooting an eight more free throws holding off the 39% shooting Seahawks.

Based on what we have seen from the Towson Tigers we have a team with potential at both ends of the floor. The Tigers had won three in a row before going flat in a 90-58 loss to visiting Hofstra where the Pride led by 16 at the break and never looked back. The Tigers struggled to make shots at 35% but Hofstra nailed field goals at 51% including a 12-24 effort from beyond the arc. Arnaud William Adala Moto gave the Tigers 14points and seven boards on 6-10 from the floor with Mike Morsell tossing in 12 points on 5-16. Walter Foster added ten points and ten rebounds with three players scoring between 6-7 points.
Towson are 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and are 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The underdog is 12-1 ATS in the last 13 meetings and the over is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings in Towson. I prefer the Seahawks as a dog to be honest so I’m lukewarm with this…
