As the final game of the night closes in on the end of the first half, the crowd at the Coliseum has become half full at most.
Nevertheless, it is the same drill for those who work the press tables. At nearly every dead ball, a CAA officer brings around stat sheets including information for every player who has entered the game. In addition to such mundane stats as how many points and rebounds each player has, there is up to the minute data on assists, turn overs,blocked shots, steals and minutes played. These sheet are distributed literally hot off the xerox machine every few minutes.
Meanwhile, the 11 seeded Towson leads the three seeded Northeastern by seven at the half.
