Best Underdogs

The Towson women’s basketball team went from being picked to finish eighth in the 2018-19 CAA preseason poll to a fourth-place regular-season finish to topping hosts Delaware in the first round of the CAA Tournament in March.

In the championship game, the Tigers had to face a Drexel team they had just lost to at SECU Arena seven days earlier … by 33 points. But then-junior Nukiya Mayo scored 20 points to lead Towson to a 53-49 win and its first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance.
