Towson jumped out to a 10-5 lead early against Fairfield, who responded very well and led through most of the game. The Tigers tied it several times, but couldn't make the big shot when needed. They fall to 5-1, while the Stags improve to 1-4. This was a game where Towson just seemed flat to open up and Nicolas Timberlake continued his struggles from long range, making just 1 of 6. He did finish with 15 points and Cam Holden led with 18 points with five boards. But Towson's poor three-point defense as they allowed Fairfield to shoot 12 of 26 from beyond the arc and 50% overall. Towson shot 44.4% from the field and just 3 of 13 from beyond the arc. Jason Gibson (back) missed his third straight game. Towson will play South Alabama on Saturday at 2:30pm, followed by a game against Mercer on Sunday at 5pm from Savannah. Here are some quotes from Pat Skerry after the game on TSN: "Credit to Fairfield. They were sharper than us early on. We were running in mud. Like that our guys hung in there. We didn't finish well at the rim. We didn't take a lot of 3s. Our defense has been bad as it's been all year. Learn some things about ourselves." "Have to play more guys tomorrow. Hicks' ankle is bothering him. Cam got poked in the eye. Effort was goo. Execution from some of our older guys was not where it needs to be. Contesting shots. Post feeds. We were a tick off mentally. We have to get that rectified." "Sloppy (20 sec-violation at the end). You make your own breaks. Our guys will bounce back. Playing a talented South Alabama team tomorrow. We'll be a bit banged up. A challenge for our performance staff."

    Won't be at FCS or at Towson. Also, he's not Lane Kiffin.

    Forgot about Flood's issues at Rutgers of alleged misconduct and a program rum amok in 2015. So no. He'll likely never be a head coach again.

    Sure, I like the Delaware connection. He won an FCS title there in 2003. I just don't want a name, but somebody has a connection in the CAA or the area. Doubt he'll be looking at an FCS program again, but you never know. I'm sure we've had countless of people asking about this job that most of us would never consider. Maybe P5, Group of 5, FCS head coaches, NFL lower level assistants.

    Fairfield upsets MBB 74-69

    One bright note was the play of Chase Paar. He's in better shape this year and maybe he's ready to give us 10-15 minutes per game at the 5. Just needs to be healthy.

    My guess is he makes nearly double what the IU DC makes. He makes around 1.1 to 1.2 million so my guess is no unless he doesn't care about $$$. Texas pays a lot more to their coordinators than Indiana. Though Indiana's defense was pretty bad this season. He might have one year left there.

    Fairfield upsets MBB 74-69

    Very disappointing effort. Didn't expect to go undefeated and assumed we'd have a loss somewhere in this tournament. No Gibson doesn't explain the porous defense in the first half and then the bad 3-point defense (mostly Nic) in the second half. Towson had to go strictly to a full-court zone press, which only really forced a turnover or two, but sped them up some. Last possession with Nic passing that to Sylla, we only had 20 seconds on the clock despite Timberlake forcing a change (in the frontcourt). So when Sylla missed everything on that drive. it was a shotclock violation. Need to take more than 13 threes. Need CT to make those 5-foot post up jump hooks he was making in CAA play. Also went 1 of 4 from the line in the first half. Didn't see the focus early on and they deserved the loss. Fairfield just got more confidence as the game went on and they deserved their first win. Hicks played just 21 minutes apparently because he's still struggling with that sprained ankle. We went big a lot with Holden and Timberlake in the backcourt, which is not ideal IMO. Would prefer to see more Conway because at some point, he's going to get hot, hit a few 3s in a row and that will get the team going. Still, you'd like our seniors to be a little more consistent with their production while helping the youngsters out. I think you see it at times where Nic gets the ball in the corner and would normally make that extra pass to Gibson. Well, he's not there and not sure he trusts Conway yet (I think he does, but not Hicks).
  9. Time for a new thread. For all things Towson men's basketball for the 2022-23 season. Predictions, CAA news, podcasts, videos, coaches shows, etc.

    I also hear there is a P5 coordinator interested, so there goes my theory about those guys not interested in a lesser paying job.

  16. Was truly an ugly win, but Tyrell Pigrome was brilliant in the last drive for Towson, taking them from 87 yards in 11 plays in 1:36 capped off by a Devin Matthews four-yard run for a TD. For some reason. Stony Brook settle for a short field goal to take a 17-14 lead and Pigrome got the job done. The big play on the drive occurred when Towson had a 4th-and-6th (after a key drop) and Pigrome ran it himself for 27 yards. Instead of settling for a game-tying FG, Pigrome hit DK James at the one-yard line to set up the game-winner without a minute left. For some reason, Towson's defense decided to play prevent all the way downfield (even in the red zone), rushing three and the Seawolves had a chance to win the game with no timeouts. However, an Oly Okombi sack at the Towson 13 and a Robert Javier pass breakup in the end zone saved the day. It was a sloppily-played game by both teams. Towson had 7 penalties for 65 yards including one with too many men in the huddle and a penalty on head coach Rob Ambrose (his second of the season). Pigrome threw for 255 yards and totaled over 300 yards of total offense with two TD passes and no turnovers. The offense ran for just 122 yards on 32 attempts. The defense gave up two big plays for TDs (due to a missed tackle and a slip in coverage). However, Xavier Terry had a key interception in the red zone and the Tigers had three sacks.
