Towson defeats Navy, 56-43, gets first road win of season
A strong second half lifted visiting Towson (6-4) to its fourth straight win, 56-43 over Navy on Sunday. "I was proud of the performance today and the fact that we got our first road win," coach Joe Mathews said. "I thought that there was the possibility for letdown coming off Thursday's big win [against No. 25 Maryland], but I thought the kids responded very well, especially in the second half, to fight and gain the victory." Haliena Snowden led the Tigers with 14 points and contributed seven rebounds and three steals. Simona Petronyte scored 11 points to go along with five assists and three rebounds. Shanae Baker-Brice had 10 points, six rebounds, five assists and three steals. Katrina Wheeler added seven rebounds.
