Few teams in the country could boast anywhere near the turnaround Towson had in 2012-13. After winning just one game the season prior and finishing No. 338 in Ken Pomeroy's rankings, the Tigers notched 18 wins, including 13 in conference play, and rose to No. 168 overall. Pat Skerry's squad would have been a real threat to grab the CAA's automatic NCAA tournament bid had it not been banned from postseason play due to APR issues.
