Towson Is Going Into The NCAA Tournament As The Underdog and Hoping To Come Out The Champion
Towson University Women's Basketball - Brandi Rosenberger

Towson University. Towson University on Saturday, March 16, 2019, won the CAA Championship game. Picked eighth in the preseason poll, no one ever expected that this team under the second-year head coach Diane Richardson would win a championship game. It's not just significant because they won, it's a big deal because it was the first time that Towson had even been to the big game.

Throughout the three games of the CAA Championship, Towson's defense was unshakable. Never in any of the three games did they ever let another team score 50 points.

Towson quieted those who didn't believe and proved to them why they should never count us out.

Coach Rich recruited her players very wisely. Everyone she brought to the table brings something new and fresh to the conversation. Through and through in every practice, one of the few things they preach over and over again is to never give up and to never quit. They run every drill to perfection, from basics like rebounding to plays and how to execute the offense.

This team is not one to take lightly. They are a threat.

Every one of those players has a specific set of skills and are not to be messed with.

Coming into the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history is without a doubt a little intimidating, but the coaches and the players remain undaunted. They have full faith in themselves, as do I. Over the course of the regular season, I have seen them grow and progress into the team they are today.

Greatness was not just given to this team. It was something they earned through their own blood, sweat, and tears. Every shot, every layup, three-point, blocked shot and rebound all got them to where they are today.

I am so incredibly proud of them. Being their manager has been one of the highlights of my college career. Experiencing them winning and losing is a part of the process, and I am so glad I met each and every one of them.

The coaches, players and other managers believe we can truly do it. They believe we can beat UCONN. I believe we can beat them.

At the end of the day, what you need to know is that UCONN is just another team. The names on their jerseys don't intimidate us. Just like our girls, they are college players and go through everything just like we do.

We can and will try our hardest to come out on top in the NCAA tournament.

To my Towson Basketball girls, I'll be right there in the stands watching.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
