After taking down Villanova and Morgan State, the Towson University Tigers plan to continue their winning ways against NCAA FCS foes with team coordination honed by coach Rob Ambrose. The four remaining home games promise a thrilling Homecoming on September 24, when the Tigers hope to roar past Colgate's Raiders and claw their way to a collective nomination for homecoming queen. Throughout the season, look for sophomore quarterback Grant Enders—who recently was named CAA Offensive Player of the Week—or speedy running back Sterlin Phifer to celebrate touchdowns in the end zone against the Richmond Spiders and Delaware Blue Hens. Co-captain and defensive back Jordan Dangerfield will try to improve his status as the nation's 24th-ranked sacker by blasting through New Hampshire's offensive line using archaic tactics the Visigoths once used to sack Rome.

The 88’x184’ Mateflex court inside Benfield Sportscenter is a shape-shifter. One day, it might be a full-size soccer field ready for child or adult leagues. The next, it could be a baseball, field hockey, or lacrosse field. Or maybe it'll be split into several different volleyball and basketball courts, with one corner cordoned off for competitive I-spy tournaments. Whatever the sport, Benfield's staff can set up the indoor arena to meet the athletes' needs. Away from the arena, Benfield Sportscenter encompasses a 1,400-square-foot training area with exercise equipment, as well as a lobby with WiFi and a snack bar.

In addition to open sessions and leagues, the staff teaches a carefully designed child-development program for ages 3 to 5. The curriculum starts with a multi-sport class, then moves on to a tri-sport class, before finally placing kids in single-sport sessions. This encourages children to find their ideal sport, whether it's basketball, baseball, hockey, tennis, or lacrosse.

You'll also receive a free Kastles T-shirt (a $15 value), and have the chance to ask Kastles coach Murphy Jensen to sign your lock of Andre Agassi's hair during a Groupon-exclusive meet-and-greet (a $25 value).

Although the Washington Kastles' roster boasts both Williams sisters, neither will be playing at these matches.

Before Bell Biv DeVoe warned that girl was “Poison,” Johnny Gill “Just Got Paid,” Ralph Tresvant boasted his “Sensitivity,” and Bobby Brown declared it was “My Prerogative,” all six new jack swingers strutted across stages as teen sensation New Edition. Fully reunited and dressed to the nines, the soulful sextet packs the 1st Mariner Center with decades of accumulated Top 10 classics and liquid dance moves. The nearly two-hour set spans the group’s entire career, from falsetto-laden classics such as “Candy Girl” and “Cool It Now” to later hits such as “If It Isn’t Love,” all mixed with stacks of tracks from their successful solo careers. This tour finds them putting on a show that's "loose, fast-paced, high-spirited, loaded with hits and personality, and thoroughly entertaining," according to the NJ.com review of a recent concert, bringing to life a catalog of songs that sticks to ears like honeycomb earmuffs. El DeBarge kicks off the evening as the opening act, coloring seductive synthesizers with his smooth tenor during dance hits such as “I Like It” and “Rhythm of the Night.”
