Tigers Handling Prosperity Well

February 06, 2013 | Robert Canady

A couple weeks ago, after the Towson men’s basketball team lost a large first half lead against Northeastern University and eventually lost the game 70-59, head coach Pat Skerry said afterward, that his team needed to learn how to handle prosperity.  At that moment, he was speaking about how to play with a large lead [...]

January 09, 2013 | Robert Canady

 When the Towson basketball team returns to the Towson center tonight for only the third time this season and the first time since December 19th, it will bring with it a more productive offense than it showed earlier in the season.   The Tigers are currently on a three-game winning streak, all on the road including [...]

January 02, 2013 | Robert Canady

With the Calendar turning to 2013, the college basketball season gets serious now.  Gone are the cupcake wins for some of the power schools.  Gone are the chances for non-BCS schools to pull off a resume building, national attention-getting win.  With all the fun or boredom of those games aside, comes the intensity and thrill [...]

December 31, 2012 | Robert Canady

I had planned to write a quick recap of the non-conference portion of Towson’s basketball season. Then move onto a look ahead to CAA play, which begins on Wednesday night in Wilmington, NC for the Tigers.  However, a strange and unexpected thing happened in Corvallis, Oregon Saturday night. Towson upset the 9-2 Beavers 67-66 in [...]

Grunfeld Taking a Wiz on D.C.

December 19, 2012 | Brett Dickinson

After watching and following the Wizards for the past several years, only one thing comes to mind. To quote the great Vince Lombardi, “what the hell is going on out here?” No team can be more infuriating in this massive media market, than the basketball team in D.C. It all starts and finishes with one [...]

Long Seasons Made Short-How Coaches Break Them Down

December 14, 2012 | Robert Canady

Sports seasons are long, Major League Baseball runs from late March to early November, the NFL goes from September into February, the NBA from October into June, College basketball goes from early November until early April, the NHL…oh yeah that’s right, well you get the point.    Because seasons are so long, coaches often break them [...]

Benimon Leads Towson In Upset Bid Of Georgetown

December 08, 2012 | Robert Canady

Often, when athletes face a former team, they are so excited and pumped up for the game it can lead to a less than stellar performance.  That was not the case with Jerrelle Benimon, a Georgetown transfer, who almost led the Towson Tigers to an upset victory over the No. 15 ranked Georgetown Hoyas on [...]

Towson Shows Well Among CAA Statistical Leaders

December 03, 2012 | Robert Canady

It is hard to believe that even though the college basketball season just started, it will be a quarter of the way over for most teams by the end of this week.     The improvement in Towson’s basketball team is already evidenced by the three wins the team has accumulated so far in just seven games.   [...]

Loyola Wins Battle of York Road

November 27, 2012 | Robert Canady

It has been pointed out to me that my last two pieces about the Towson basketball team had references to food and eating. I looked at them again and sure enough, they did. One referenced a team saying of ‘everyone eats when we win’ and the other one mentioned Coach Pat Skerry theoretically enjoying his [...]

November 23, 2012 | Robert Canady

The turkey had to taste a bit better this year for Pat Skerry as his Towson men’s’ basketball team took a 3-2 record into the Thanksgiving holiday.  The Tigers just finished a 3-1 trip to the Comfort Suites Invitational in Richmond, Kentucky. The lone blemish was a 71-69 OT loss to host Eastern Kentucky, which [...]
