TOWSON WAS 3-0 for the first time since 1972. The Tigers had the biggest turnaround in NCAA history last season (1-31 to 18-13). They had just beaten Temple on Thursday night. They got their first vote in the Associated Press Top 25 poll. They had double-double machine Jerrelle Benimon. What they did not have was any depth at point guard. Or apparently any idea how to attack Villanova's 1-2-2 three-quarter court trap that has become a staple of the program under Jay Wright. Towson left its new SECU Arena for the first time and ended up in the wrong place against the wrong team at the wrong time.

TOWSON, Md. - Fran Dunphy watched his team fall apart in the game's last nine minutes. After taking a seven-point lead, Temple appeared to be on its way to a win. Instead, the Owls suffered their second straight loss, 75-69, to Towson in front of 3,554 at SECU Arena on Thursday night. The Owls (1-2) played crisply for most of the game, but missed six consecutive field goals and committed four turnovers as the lead disappeared. "We panicked a little bit. I don't know that we're ready yet to win this game on the road against this particular group," Dunphy said.

Junior Hairston scored 13 of his 24 points in a runaway first half last night as Towson opened with a 15-0 run and never let up in a 73-62 victory over Drexel in the first round of the Colonial Athletic Association tournament at the Richmond Coliseum. The Tigers (11-21), seeded 11th, limited Drexel to four first-half field goals, the first coming with 13 minutes, 1 second remaining in the half, and had a 34-9 lead 3 1/2 minutes before halftime. It was 39-14 at the break, and the sixth-seeded Dragons (15-14)

Eric Schmieder scored 19 of his game-high 25 points in the second half to help Drexel pull away for a 76-50 victory over Towson in a Colonial Athletic Association game yesterday. Drexel (13-8 overall, 8-4 league) jumped ahead, 24-12, eight minutes into the first half. Towson slowed the Dragons and crept back into the game, cutting the margin to 36-29 at halftime. But Schmieder took command in the second half. He scored the first seven points of the half and eventually got 12 of the team's first 13 as Drexel took a 49-33 lead.

TOWSON, Md. - Villanova quarterback John Robertson proved too much for Towson to stop Saturday night. Robertson completed 17 of 18 passes for 182 yards and two touchdowns and also ran for 150 yards and three more scores as the No. 15 Wildcats took a 21-point first-quarter lead and then hung on for a 45-35 victory over the third-ranked Tigers in a Colonial Athletic Association game at Johnny Unitas Stadium. The quarterback carried Villanova (4-2, 3-0) to its fourth straight win, a victory that ended Towson's 10-game winning streak.

Fran Dunphy and Pat Kennedy arrived at the Liacouras Center last evening with 777 wins and 555 losses between them. Dunphy has never left town in his head-coaching career, just crossing the Schuylkill in 2006. Kennedy had been in New York (Iona) Florida (Florida State), Illinois (De Paul), Montana (Montana) and Maryland (Towson). Kennedy could have used Sam Cassell or Bobby Sura. He did have Durant, but it was Tony, not his brother Kevin, playing for Towson. He also had a dead ringer for Randy Moss in transfer Junior Hairston, who last played at the College of Charleston, a bad name on North Broad Street these days.

This Villanova football team isn't particularly manufactured for games like Saturday's. The 2012 Wildcats like to control the ball with their run game and try to break the opposition down. Against Towson, a physical team with a high-powered offense and deceiving record, they were forced into a shootout. Villanova couldn't keep pace in the second half and lost, 49-35, at Villanova Stadium. The Wildcats, who entered the game ranked 19th in the Sports Network Poll and 23d in the coaches' poll, enter their bye week 6-3 overall and 4-2 in CAA play.

In last week's five-point, come-from-behind victory over visiting Lehigh, Villanova rushed for nearly 400 yards while throwing for 56. In Saturday afternoon's 40-21 home win over Towson in a Colonial Athletic Association opener, the Wildcats - ranked 21st in FCS - got a 20-for-26 passing performance from redshirt sophomore Zach Bednarczyk, for 230 yards and three touchdowns. The bulk of that came in the first half, when the Wildcats scored on all four of their possessions (and missed their third extra-point of the season)

VILLANOVA finished 6-5 last season, despite losing Walter Payton Award-winning quarterback John Robertson early and most of their running backs by November. If the Wildcats had gone 7-4, they probably would have made the NCAA playoffs. The wounds were mostly self-inflected. The Wildcats had a fumble returned for a length-of-the-field touchdown against them in an 11-point September home loss to Penn. They gave up three non-offensive touchdowns in a season-ending, nine-point loss at James Madison, when they still had a chance to earn a share of the Colonial Athletic Association title.

VILLANOVA'S SEASON started last weekend with a 28-7 loss at FBS Pitt. But now the journey gets underway for real Saturday night when the Wildcats host Lehigh, which opened with a 23-21 home loss to Monmouth. 'Nova had nothing to lose at Pitt. From here on out, that's no longer the case. Not if you're a team that wants to make the FCS playoffs for the sixth time in nine years in this, Andy Talley's 32nd and last season. Next week, they host Towson, which beat the Wildcats last year, in their Colonial Athletic Association opener.

After an opening-round victory Friday in the NCAA women's lacrosse tournament, Penn coach Karin Brower Corbett said her main worry going forward was the Quakers defense. Well, she needn't worry any more. Penn (15-4) held host Towson scoreless in the run of play for the first 56 minutes, 14 seconds, allowing only two free-position goals to beat the Tigers, 12-4, in a second-round game at Johnny Unitas Stadium. The Quakers advanced to play Penn State (which upset second-seeded Florida, 14-13, in double overtime)

BRUISER FLINT is not frustrated. A little disappointed, but not full-blown frustrated. He's seen it before. His team looks solid in stretches and then, just like that, usually at key moments, his team self-destructs. Thursday night, it happened again. Flint's Drexel Dragons held a three-point lead with 6 minutes, 38 seconds left in regulation. But they allowed Towson to go on a 14-4 run - shots not falling, passes not connecting, foul shots missed - en route to a 77-70 Colonial Athletic Association loss at the Daskalakis Athletic Center.

When La Salle guard Amar Stukes went to the bench Saturday after fouling out, the Explorers were down to their last five scholarship players for the final 8 minutes, 54 seconds of their physical, season-opening game against Towson. With Yevgen Sakhniuk - a 6-foot-7 sophomore from Ukraine who was making his debut - saddled with four personal fouls, it appeared as if the Explorers might have to go to their last available player, popular junior walk-on Hank Davis, who played in just three games a season ago. But Sakhniuk stayed on the court the rest of the way. The Explorers kept grinding, got some big plays from Johnnie Shuler and Jordan Price in the final minute, and defeated the Tigers, 78-76, before an enthusiastic crowd of 3,400 at Tom Gola Arena.

Villanova coach Andy Talley said before last week's 28-21 loss to Towson that the game was a must-win. Now, with the prospect of losing their fourth game in the last five, Talley makes the situation sound dire but not hopeless. "I think the running-the-table thing, we have the potential to do that because we have a great defense," Talley earlier this week. "Last week they were brilliant. But to have an offensive cast that can't support them is frustrating. " The Wildcats (3-4, 2-2 Colonial Athletic Association)
