Who’s PlayingTowson @ BryantCurrent Records: Towson 8-4; Bryant 8-4What to KnowThe Bryant Bulldogs and the Towson Tigers will compete for holiday cheer at noon ET on Thursday at Chace Athletic Center. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they’ll have plenty of motivation to get the ‘W.’ Bryant has to be hurting after a devastating 82-62 defeat at the hands of the Liberty Flames this past Saturday. Meanwhile, the Tigers received a tough blow this past Saturday as they fell 83-66 to the Northern Iowa Panthers. One thing holding Towson back was the mediocre play of guard Nicolas Timberlake, who did not have his best game: he picked up four fouls and turned the ball over five times en route to a 12-point finish. The losses bumped both teams down to an identical 8-4. Bryant is 2-1 after losses this year, Towson 1-2.
