Local front

Towson -- Pat Kennedy continues to pull rabbits out of Towson's hat. Wednesday's upset of Virginia Commonwealth improved the Tigers to 11-14 overall and 7-9 in the Colonial Athletic Association. That's as many CAA wins as Towson had in the past three seasons combined. VCU had a higher RPI than Clemson when the week began. The Tigers did it without an injured Gary Neal. No matter who's on the court, Kennedy's guys get good shots.
