It’s been a long time coming for Towson. 375 days, to be exact.
That’s the last time the Tigers won a game – December 29, 2010 at La Salle.
On Saturday, Towson set an NCAA record with its 35th consecutive loss, a 75-38 defeat at Old Dominion. The Tigers dropped to 0-16 on the season, 0-4 in the Colonial.
They were held to 50 points or fewer for the fifth consecutive game, but had a slight improvement over Wednesday’s 27 points – the new CAA record for fewest points scored in a game. Saturday's game was also the 14th game this season that Towson has lost by double figures.
Pat Skerry is in his first year as the head coach of Towson, coming over after being an assistant coach at Pittsburgh. The Tigers returned just one player from last season, but do have a very good recruiting class entering the fold next season.
Sacramento State had the previous Division-I record for consecutive losses, set in 1997-1999. Towson gets its next opportunity to end the streak on Wednesday at home against William & Mary. Coincidentally, that game is the best chance Towson has the rest of the season at getting a victory.
