O’Leary’s Insight: “What a great opportunity for us to come to Maryland and beat an experienced team like Towson in front of a lot of orange and blue in the stands. It took a complete team effort to get the win today, and we’re looking forward to regrouping in the next couple of days to get ready to face a talented Loyola team on Wednesday.” Up Next The Gators will remain in Maryland to take on the Loyola Greyhounds (0-4) on March 8 at 1 P.M.
