TOWSON - The season may have ended for Towson's men's basketball team, but there is still hope for a title to come to tiger town.

Despite a tragic upset at the hands of Monmouth University during the CAA Tournament championship, the Towson Tiger's Women's Basketball Team's season is not over.

The Tigers lost 80-55 on Sunday night after entering the tournament as the No. 1 seed. The team was initially projected to finish fifth in the Colonial Athletic Association. However, after a stellar season helmed by the first-year Head Coach Laura Harper, the team finished with a 21-11 record.

Despite the anticlimactic end to Towson's tournament run, the season is not over. The No. 1 seed in the CAA tournament earns an automatic invitation to the Women's National Invitation Tournament (WNIT).

The team will find out whether their first game will be at home or away and who their opponents will be on Sunday.

The Towson Towerlight spoke with Head Coach Harper ahead of the start of the WNIT tournament.

"They're going to remember how this feels, and it's really going to motivate them to come back and be ready to compete," Harper said. "And we will be ready to compete in the WNIT."

2023 marks the team's second consecutive year competing in the tournament.
