    General MBB thread

    While I can't argue with you, I'll take Skerry over PK, Hunt, or any other coach heading back to Truax.....If Skerry can get shooters and passers, and then impress upon them his style of defense and rebounding, it's a winning formula. I would cringe at Spiro's post game interviews with Skerry where we would lose, while out-rebounding the other team, but have 3 assists.....And rather than ever mentioning spacing, ball movement our outside shooting, Skerry would provide his canned answers that "we need to guard & defend better," when the real issue was offensive style and skill. He was (and perhaps still is) such a one trick pony, to a fault, and it carried over to his recruiting, much to our detriment. Skerry is a defensive whiz. If he commits to finding scorers, shooters, and passers, and then imparts his defensive style, we will win. This year is the first year I have ever heard Skerry say things like....."I was proud of the ball movement" or "we are going to shoot 3s" etc. Maybe he and his staff have FINALLY connected the dots...... I graduated in 1994. It's been heartbreaking to see how utterly pathetic our teams have been the last 25 years. In my mind this season has already been a smashing success as the team is a joy to watch. You could see it the first game against Albany where those of us in the chat were like, "who is this team...".....I've had more pleasure watching these guys share the ball, shoot lights out, not need to rely on one specific player (like a gary neal, fobbs, martin, JB, etc.), while the rest of the team was awful, each and every night. I realize there is more to be done, but after having sand kicked in our faces for 25 years, it's great to see a team win, in some cases dominate, and do so in a way that is beautiful basketball.

    Elon hammering JMU right now 43-23. Elon has 16 assists on 16 FGs.....Mc'Intosh 5 - 5 from 3 so far.

    W&M preview

    If Gibson and Nolan remain out, I'd take the points in a heartbeat...
  6. That pass was really risky, and CT did a good job of handling the pass and getting the layup...Still that was Magic / Ja Morant vision and he put a bit of english on the pass, ended up being a thing of beauty. Cam is just an absolute joy....

    Bieku is a typical Skerry recruit in that he's offensively challenged. Gibson, who sort of fell in Skerry's lap as an uncommitted senior is the only offensively geared freshman recruit we've had in quite a few years. I like Hicks, but again, he's also challenged offensively......The other recruits the last 2 years never see the floor....He and his staff nailed the transfer class, but to continue this turn around he needs to focus on getting talented scorers & passers

    Didn't we land a 5 start recruit?
  9. For their game scheduled against Loyola that was cancelled. Any chance we could take them up on this? If Cam were healthy, I really like our chances.
  10. 11-7 is attainable? We're statistically a top 2 CAA team after playing one of the best OOC schedules. I think 15-3 in conference is attainable.

    Stat Update II

    And starting with the Ohio road trip, we have hit on 47.2 of our 3's over the last 5 games.

    Stat Update II

    The 37.1% 3 point percentage is #1 in the CAA and top 50 in the country.
  13. I'm so glad they were able to play this game, with COVID creating so much havoc. This will be a nice Net ranking boost, beating a "quad 2" team at their place. We are now shooting over 37% as a team (from 3), and that's remarkable given how bad we were the first few games of the year. This team is special, I could see that when we played Albany. The ball movement and unselfish play is something I've always admired with other teams, and it's a joy to watch. It's the best Towson team in 20 years and the numbers are bearing that out. Navy is decent, and this was yet another win where we led wire to wire. 18 assists to 3. To me, it's this type of passing that has been the missing link, and what has made this season so enjoyable so far.

    Don't Look Now, But....

    UNCG has gone to OT in about half of their games....Most all of the games they have played have been extremely close....

    Joe Lunardi has us in the NCAA field in his latest bracektology as a 16 seed playing Gonzaga! I realize it's way too soon to get caught up in things like this, but one can dream. We have looked really good this year though, and I'll stand by the comments I made in the chat that this is the best Towson team I've seen in ~20 years (even better than the Bennimon teams)....
