    2019 OOC opponents

    Thanks. If my memory serves me, we usually open conference play on the road. It’ll be nice to start at home vs NE, who lost a bunch of players & Hofstra, who I think will still be pretty good, even without JWF

    Is the conference schedule out?

    Loyola LAX star Pat Spencer will play basketball for Northwestern this fall as a grad transfer

    Let's talk Towson Hall of Fame

    Sad commentary about the dearth of HOF candidates from MBB. When the time comes, Morsell has got be in, IMHO.

    I’m not sure I would take it. We’ve played ODU at home. Harvard playing at NE is nothing more than a crosstown game; not dissimilar from us vs UMBC. I would like to play Davidson at home. The rest of NE’s home schedule...meh

    Football update

    Thanks for the updates. Always nice to read new posts during this slow time of the year. Its a Captain Obvious statement, but we’ve got to be able to win in the trenches. I don’t care how many skilled players we have, if we’re deficient on the O-Line and/or D-Line, we’re sunk. The best pass defense isn’t good secondary players (though it’s nice when you have them) but rather it’s the other teams QB running for his life and hopefully noticing how pretty the sky is as he looks up after getting knocked on his ass. Really hoping for good news on the transfer front before summer camp
  7. The NCAA has announced that starting this season the 3-point line will be moved back to a distance of 22 feet, 1 3/4 inches, the same distance used in international play. Since the 2008-09 season, the college 3-point line has been 20 feet, 9 inches. Prior to that, it was 19 feet, 9 inches. By comparison, the NBA 3-point line ranges from 22 feet in the corners, out to 23 feet, 9 inches.

    If I’m not mistaken, only Puerto Rico & US Virgin Islands are exempted

    NCAA rule is once every 4 years

    I don’t disagree with your analysis. In fact, if the stars align (Gibson seizes the PG job; Timberlake becomes a double digit scorer; Gray does likewise; Betrand & Solomon make the freshman-to-sophomore leap; Tunstall, Sanders & Thompson grab 20+ boards a game; Howard comes off the bench to drain a few 3’s; Dottin improves from being a miserable shooter to even an average shooter; & Fobbs avgs around 20ppg) we could be a sleeper this coming season. Problem is, I just think that’s asking an awful lot for all those things to go right. But every team in the conference, maybe with the exception of Delaware (though they did lose Eric Carter) has question marks, which is why handicapping the outcome with any degree of success might be a fools errand

    So much, this coming season & next, will depend on the quality of the PG play. With the talent drain that took place around the conference this offseason, who knows what to expect this upcoming season. At this very early juncture, I see us as a middle of the pack team. Now, if Gibson, Timberlake & Gray all meet or exceed expectations, and if Betrand & Solomon U significantly improve, and if Sanders can average around 12 & 7, then maybe we can move up in the standings. Personally, I think they’re are too many ifs, but that’s why the games aren’t played on paper. I’m not going to speculate on 2020-21 yet. Too many things can change, plus we don’t know what will happen with the 4 open scholarships that will be available after this upcoming season

    Same CC that JJ Matthews transferred to when he left here after the 2017 season.

    Demetrius Mims transfers to Towson

    The signing of Mims suggests 2 things to me: (1) one reason to recruit kids you might not get on the front end is to, no pun intended, catch them on the rebound if things don’t work out for them at the school they choose originally; & (2) kids like Mims (& Victor U) are the types of transfers TU is generally going to get-kids who went to bigger programs than Towson, & when things (for whatever reason) don’t work out, they’re looking at a smaller program where they might be able to be a big fish 🐠 in a smaller pond. I just don’t see us getting transfers who’ve actually had success at the program they’re leaving, as I believe those kids are generally looking to move up to a program that offers more limelight

    Demetrius Mims transfers to Towson

    This could be a good get. Local kid who won 2 State championships, scored 1,500 points & was a State POY. Was recruited by legit programs like VCU. Went to Long Beach State & for whatever reason it didn’t click for him out there. Now he’ll have until November 2020 to hone his game & has 3 years of eligibility left. We’ll need someone to pick up the slack for Fobbs; hopefully Mims can be that guy.
