    I think we all agree that PS inherited a program that was in the abyss and deserves credit for making the program respectable. He also deserves credit for graduating kids and, while I only know him in a very cursory way, he strikes me as a great family man. OTOH, I believe he has plateaued and that the program is stagnant, at best, and is in fact regressing. I don’t believe he is a good X’s and O’s Coach (see today’s stupefying decision not to foul when up by 3 at the end). I also don’t think he’s a good recruiter or talent evaluator. Certain numbers don’t lie: he’s never won a regular season conference title and his conference tournament record is dismal. His style of play has fostered a continuing pattern of teams that simply aren’t good shooting teams and are often times unentertaining to watch. We’re not talking about a small sample size anymore of his body of work-it’s over a decade now. By any objective metrics, he should be replaced. Having said that, the reality of the (mind boggling) contract extension he received a few years ago is that he’s not on the hot seat; maybe if we stink again next season the seat will start getting a little warm, but I’m not even sure about that.

    Congrats to him. Anyone who is at Towson and puts up with skerry for 5 years, deserves it.

    I am unable to watch our games as I refuse to play for Aunt Flo Sports so I get my feel for this team through these threads and much appreciated work that Mat does. That being said something does have to change. If you remove the players names from the comments from the posters and replace them with "Player X" and "Player Y", no one would have any idea if the thread was from yesterday's game, a game from last year, two years ago etc. From the one or two games I am able to watch a year to the threads I read this team has: 1) Tough to watch the brand of basketball is not fun viewing. Standing around for 25 seconds and then "Player X" forces up a shot 2) No shooters 3) No one to handle and/distrbute the ball. 4) Player X has not developed in his 3 or 4 years on campus 5) The list could go on and on but it will start to be as boring as one of our offensive possessions! I am never like to see anyone anywhere lose their job, but in order for him to stay Skerry ball needs to adjust to present times.

    Charles Thompson deserves 10 shot attempts per game. Need to build on him. Still has 2 more seasons with us.

    A 10 contract extension for a career under 500 coach with 0 conf tournament finals appearances. Someone needs to be accountable

    There isn’t anyone on here saying that rob abs pat didn’t take their programs from the bottom to atleast being competitive. We all are in agreement on that and they did a great job. However they NEVER took the next step. Since their two respective transfers left, their records have been well under .500. We want to know why long term (really long) extensions were given when they really weren’t warranted. Were bigger programs looking to poach? No. why is going from The laughing stock of a league to respectability, to average (being nice with that), fine expectations for Towson. Why are people ok with that for Athletics and the university as a whole?! Delaware has hired and fired winners during PS RA campaign Elon has fired two bad coaches. WM has fired/pushed out winners. JMU has fired underperforming hoops coach (an alum at that) Uncw has gone through coaches who didn’t succeed too (their first year coach is getting heat on their board.. better fans) Pat is the second longest tenured coach in the league, to a guy whose been to the ncaa numerous times. He is 4 games over 500 overall after 2011-12. That record is not good considering we play a weak schedule. Totally disagree with the sophs, Atleast the guards. They have been playing awful.

    2024... enjoy every minute of Towson University... I miss it every single day of my life. You must understand that we haven’t seen a Dance since 1991 and we almost lost football for good and well they took men’s soccer away from us. We have a beautiful arena that we all thought would entice better players to come and better teams to play in the non conference. We’ve had players leave us although one weirdly returned. Keep posting and be thick skinned. We are in the midst of Towson Torture however my crystal ball 🔮 shows us upsetting a blue blood program in 2025 when coach Mark Prosser leads us to the Big Dance

    Coaches not fouling up 3 late under 5 seconds is just plain stupid. Now with that said, the lack of basketball IQ in this program (with the exception of maybe one player) is so, that they would probably foul them in the act..

    It's good to have other people on the boards with different opinions. I'm getting tired of rambling to just 5-10 people. Nobody is more frustrated but also immune to these types of losses than I am. I've seen it since the mid-nineties. As soon as I turned on the lacrosse game, I thought about the Maryland loss in the first round two years ago when we tried to hold the ball and gave up the game-tying goal with a second left. It's never easy to hold the ball in any sport when you have the lead, but the aggressive teams end up winning the game. Now if Zane makes a late 3 when he could/should have moved the ball out, we aren't bitching. At some point, in terms of game situations up 3 or up 6 or up 8, you have to do more than dribble the ball for 20 seconds and hope they foul you. The two-man game with Zane and CT and Gibby and CT were working. For Gibby, bad back and all, he's not only having a rough time shooting, but he's struggling on the other end. They are going after him and will again on Sunday. If Allen or Dottin weren't so rough on the offensive end, you could make changes. The other thing that hurt was Mims foul trouble. He picked up two fouls in the first minute of the game and I didn't think that was possible since Nakye Sanders graduated. He has to be on the floor more. His length is key and he's not a bad rebounder. On the good side, Biekeu is getting better. He had a few nice post moves and in some way, he's smoother than CT with his back to the basket. Charles has just a little more athleticism. Unfortunately, when Solly and Victor return next week (assuming we play NE), I assume he goes back to the bench. CT will also get more of a chance to rest. The kid made two clutch foul shots down the stretch. He doesn't really have a face-up game yet and he's really been productive.

    Great effort today. Proud of the team despite the loss - and an outstanding play at the buzzer, just rimmed out. Zane and CT were beasts today....

    Very hard to get information about our three recruits for next season with COVID-19 getting in the way. I've tried to compile some stuff about PG Tyler Gill, PG Rahdir Hicks and PF Tyler Coleman. Not trying to get snide remarks, putting these kids down or making them seem like the next Grant Riller or Marcus Thornton. I'm trying to learn about them as well. Sounds like Hicks has the most potential due to his length, though Gill might be more polished at 5-11. Gill is a tremendous passer and of course, a lefty. I did this last year so I'm sure there's another thread out there. https://www.cityofbasketballlove.com/news_article/show/1132052 https://basketballfinders.com/rahdir-hicks/ https://phenomhoopreport.com/511-21-tyler-gill-more-than-a-worthy-prospect/ https://www.bigshots.net/news_article/show/1104601

    http://stats.statbroadcast.com/statmonitr/?id=319838 Different situation. Same result. Had a double-digit first-half lead and led by seven 39-32 at intermission. This is a game where they did miss Victor defensively and Solly on the offensive end as the 3rd option. Towson led most of the game, but Jason Gibson's foul trouble (played just 23 minutes), their inability to slow down Conner Kochera (30pts) and Luke Loewe (20pts) along with poor shot selection down the stretch did them in. But as poor as they played defensively in the second half (51% shooting by Tribe), they had several chances at the end. The Tigers had the ball with under 23 seconds left after a rare stop and Zane Martin once again drives right for a layup and bricks it with his left hand so hard that W&M had an outlet pass to Kuchera, who finished the game-winning layup on the other end with 14.3 seconds left in the game. The Tribe had just three team fouls for some reason and fouled twice to force the Tigers keep inbounding the ball. At that point, it was going to Martin again. He fumbled the ball on the drive, took a wild step-back from 20 and shot an airball. Game. Set. Six-game losing streak. On the bright side, Charles Thompson was magnificent on the defensive end with 15 rebounds and at least seven blocks (should have been credited with two more in first half). He did miss two foul shots in the second half and Towson went 5-of-10 from the line. Take away Thompson's defense and the Tribe are getting close to 90 in this game or maybe over. The lack of getting to the line is a bit confusing considering that there was constant contact and drives to the basket. But when you are struggling to score and win games, refs won't be as willing to give you calls (right or wrong) Mims wasn't bad with 10 points and eight rebounds in 27 minutes. He has to be better on that short jumper or floater from the "red zone". But he needs to play. Timberlake had 15 pts and Zane had 18 with 8 assists but shot just 7 of 20 and 3 of 10 from 3-point range. Backcourt really struggled defensively to contain Loewe and Kuchera who had their way getting to the basket whenever they wanted. Yuri Covington had 11 points and got most of them in the second half and was also getting to the cup. Just missed the Zoom meeting and press conference.

    You are right. We do need to get CT the ball more. The problem is that W&M knew that and doubled him every time he got close to the basket as he was backing in. He takes a little too long with his post moves. You can say that about all the big guys. They need to be quicker to avoid the double teams. Also need more pick and roll. Watching the NE game last night from last year (the road game where we won), our bigs where much more active offensively, especially Sanders. Would rather see Gibson and Thompson work together on screens than just Zane and CT. Bieku can set screens when he's in. When go with one big, it's tougher to post up because he's the main screener. Defensively, Tunstall was blocking shots the way CT did today. I think CT has more potential on offense, but he has to work on getting more skilled with a mid-range shot. I noticed Bieku actually can shoot it a little from mid-range. I think we played the right away offensively for most of the game until the end. At least right way for us. Then we started going ISO Zane and once the game got tight, so did we. We jacked up bad shots and well, you knew the result by watching, though I didn't expect that play at the end where Zane bricked the layup so badly that it turned into a layup for Kochera.

    32% overall shooting; 26% from 3. Not interested in hearing about covid + injuries. The unvarnished truth is this is a very bad team; can’t shoot & can’t play D. To paraphrase Mike Singletary, “can’t win with these guys.” Every offensive possession is a momentous struggle to get a clean look, usually punctuated by chucking up a brick with the shot clock running out. We’ve almost come full circle ⭕️ from Skerry’s 1st season. He’s plateaued and is now regressing. No tournament in a decade and hard to have any optimism about making it under his tenure, which has years left to go. Safe to say this season is a lost cause, but I’m having a hard time even dredging up a modicum of optimism for next season. Sure, Thompson’s game has improved and so has Solomon’s, and Gibson (who’s not a PG) can be a serviceable backup 2 guard, but as far as I’m concerned they’re all just a tick above role players, which is par for the course for Skerry recruits. No returning players on this roster who’s a difference maker and who here believes any of the 3 incoming freshmen next season are going to be impactful scorers? Same as it ever was, same as it ever was

    Consider it a blessing in disguise that you are spared the dubious “benefits” of watching TU MBB games this season. You are spot on about how comments from prior seasons about a dearth of good shooters/passers and players not developing could be recycled and applied to this years team. The players change over the years, but the common denominator is the coach, who isn’t going anywhere for what, another 6-8 years, at least.

    This team is awful. Led by incompetence at every level. 2-4 against rookie coaches which new players. What’s the excuse now?! Same old same old Charles is the only bright spot. Plays hard and has some skill. His basketball IQ is higher than most on the team which isn’t saying much but still. Year 10,(minus 11-12) 133-126 .511 81-67 CAA regular season .547 Has shown nothing on the court and nothing for the future Right now that joker is stealing money from Towson. We are the only school dumb enough to keep big failures as head coaches of football and basketball. Add in the wind bag of an AD, and you have the laughing stock of the CAA. How does every other school get it wrong and then fire their shitty coaches and get it right. Getting lapped in both sports is laughable. time to move on. Or move down in conference.
