Towson Lax Home Opener Saturday Against Mount St. Mary’s on WNST

Posted on 03 March 2012 by WNST Staff

Opening Face-Off
Looking to snap their two-game losing streak, the Tigers return to Johnny Unitas® Stadium on Saturday afternoon to host Mount St. Mary’s in the 2012 home opener. The game, which is sponsored by Mariner Finance, will be broadcast on WNST-AM 1570 with Spiro Morekas and Hunter Lochte calling the action.

Note: If the Tiger men’s basketball team advances to the CAA Tournament quarter-finals on Saturday, the Tiger men’s lacrosse game will be broadcast on TowsonTigers.com in its entirety.   

Updating the Tigers
Now 1-2 on the season, the Tigers have dropped back-to-back games after a season-opening 12-10 victory over Jacksonville on Feb. 11. The Tigers lost by a 12-6 margin to No. 2 Johns Hopkins on Feb. 17 before suffering a 13-6 defeat at No. 13 Loyola last Saturday afternoon. Freshman midfielder Justin Mabus recorded his second three-point game of the season by scoring a goal with two assists. Meanwhile, senior attackman Sean Maguire tallied two goals in a losing effort. Maguire is the Tigers’ leading scorer with six goals and two assists while Mabus has a team-high five assists. 

Scouting the Mountaineers
Off to a 1-1 start this season, the Mountaineers will be playing their third game in eight days when they visit Towson on Saturday afternoon. After opening the season with a 12-10 upset victory over two-time defending Colonial Athletic Association champion Delaware last Saturday afternoon, the Mountaineers dropped a 17-5 decision against No. 1 Virginia on Tuesday afternoon at Waldron Family Stadium. Junior midfielder Daniel Stranix is the team’s leading scorer with five goals and one assist. 

Last Year’s Towson-Mount St. Mary’s Meeting
Led by three goals from attackman Matt Hughes, the Tigers erupted for four early goals en route to a dominating 11-3 victory over Mount St. Mary’s at Waldron Family Stadium. The Tigers, who owned a 6-2 lead at half-time, held the Mountaineers scoreless for the first 26:21 of the game. While Hughes led the Tigers with three goals and an assist, midfielder Andrew Hodgson contributed two goals with an assist as the Tigers outshot Mount St. Mary’s by a 46-31 margin. Andrew Scalley led the Mountaineers with two goals while goalkeeper T.C. DiBartolo had 14 saves, including seven in the fourth quarter.

Towson-Mount St. Mary’s Series History
The Tigers and the Mountaineers will be meeting for the eighth time in an all-time series that Towson leads by a 6-1 margin. The Tigers have won the last five meetings in the series, including last year’s 11-3 victory at Waldron Family Stadium. The Mountaineers’ lone victory in the series came on Mar. 26, 1975 in a 1-0 forfeit victory at Towson. During the seven-game series, the Tigers have averaged 14.1 goals per game while holding the Mountaineers to eight goals or less in six of the seven games.

You probably don’t know how much I enjoy Chevelle. It’s fine, I’m not mad. But someone will have to accept the responsibility of passing along a few tickets my way. I don’t care which one of you takes the responsibility, just make sure it gets done.

I’m doing the Tuesday night gig from Jerry DePizzo and the boys in DC. Unlike Chevelle, you all know EXACTLY how much I love the guys from Of A Revolution…

Lauryn Hill is one of the greatest musicians in the history of the planet. This dates back to her days at St. Francis School in California…

Not familiar with Carolina Chocolate Drops? Probably about time for you to take a few minutes…

9. Tim Meadows (Friday & Saturday Baltimore Comedy Factory); Donnell Rawlings (Thursday-Saturday Magooby’s Joke House); John Oliver (Friday & Saturday DC Improv); “Hugo” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday)

Here’s the thing. I don’t always think every comedian that comes to the area is very funny. That’s not the case with the group hitting the Mid-Atlantic this weekend. They’re all freaking funny.

“Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story” wasn’t very funny, but Tim Meadows was pretty funny in “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story” (Language Semi-NSFW)…

You may remember Donnell Rawlings better as “Ashy Larry” from Chapelle’s Show. (Language definitely NSFW)…

John Oliver is just freaking brilliant…

I wish I had more time to watch The Daily Show.

Towson Basketball Wraps Regular Season Saturday at JMU on WNST

Posted on 25 February 2012 by WNST Staff

SETTING THE STAGE: Towson and James Madison will be playing for the second time in just two weeks as both squads close out their regular season Saturday. The Dukes narrowly escaped with a 58-56 win at the Towson Center on Feb. 11, but they’ve lost three straight since that contest. Towson, which narrowly fell to Delaware on senior day Wednesday, will be looking to pick up its first road win of the season. Tip time is set for 4 p.m. and the game can be heard live on WNST-AM (1570).

LAST TIME OUT: Senior forward Robert Nwankwo registered his 14th double-double of the season and freshman guard Kris Walden netted a career-high 18 points, but it wasn’t enough as the visiting Delaware Blue Hens avoided Towson’s upset bid with a 76-69 victory over the Tigers Wednesday on senior night. Nwankwo, who tallied 12 points and grabbed a game-high 14 rebounds, has now posted double-doubles in 10 of his last 13 games. Tiger sophomore Marcus Damas reached the 20-point plateau for the third time this season as the forward netted a team-high 21 points on 7-for-15 shooting.

SCOUTING THE DUKES: James Madison is paced by scoring duo A.J. Davis and Humpty Hitchens. Davis ranks fourth in the CAA averaging 16.4 points per game while Hitchens is close behind in sixth averaging 15.3 points a contest. Hitchens also leads all league players with 79 three-point field goals and he’s fourth in the conference averaging 3.9 assists per game. Along with Hitchens, guard Andrey Semenov is key to JMU’s three-point attack as he shoots 44.6 percent from beyond the arc, a mark that ranks second in the CAA.

WHERE ROB RANKS: Towson senior Robert Nwankwo is quickly moving up both the Towson and CAA record books. After his stellar performance Wednesday, the forward is now just 14 rebounds shy of passing Lawrence Hamm (2002-06) for fourth all-time in Towson history in rebounding. Nwankwo also sits just eight rejections away from moving by Pat McKinley (1973-77) for second all-time in the Towson record books for blocked shots. With 221 career blocked shots, Nwankwo currently places seventh all-time in CAA history having just past Old Dominion’s Cal Bowdler on Wednesday. Nwankwo also has a chance to become Towson’s all-time leader in games played. Entering Saturday’s contest, the senior has played in 117 career games, trailing only Rocky Coleman, who played in 119 games from 2005-09.

OFFENSE IGNITED: Towson scored a season-high 69 points against Delaware on Wednesday. The Tigers shot an impressive 47.1 percent from the field in the second half and their 44-point second stanza was the most points scored in any half this season for Towson. The Tigers’ previous season-high for a game was 66 points in a Jan. 28 win over UNC Wilmington and previous season-high for points in a half was 39 against UNC Greensboro.

Towson Looks to Bounce Back Against Loyola Saturday on WNST

Posted on 25 February 2012 by WNST Staff

2012 Towson University Men’s Lacrosse
Game 3: Tigers at No. 13 Loyola
Saturday, Feb. 25, 2012 | 1 p.m.
Ridley Athletic Complex | Baltimore, Md.
Radio: WNST-AM 1570

TIGERS COMPLETE SEASON-OPENING ROAD TRIP AT NO. 13 LOYOLA
Towson Looks to Defeat Greyhounds for First Time Since 2007

Opening Face-Off
Hoping to rebound from their first loss of the season, the Tigers will finish their season-opening three-game road trip on Saturday afternoon when they make the short trip to the Ridley Athletic Complex to face No. 13 Loyola University Maryland at 1 p.m. The game will be broadcast on WNST-AM 1570 with Eric Rhew and Hunter Lochte calling the action.

Updating the Tigers
Now 1-1 on the season, the Tigers dropped a 12-6 decision against No. 2 Johns Hopkins last Friday night at Homewood Field. After battling to a 3-3 tie, the Blue Jays scored eight straight goals to take a commanding 11-3 advantage they did not relinquish. Redshirt freshman midfielder Robby Zoppo posted his second straight two-goal game while junior goalkeeper Andrew Wascavage had a career-high 11 saves in his second straight start. Senior attackman Sean Maguire is the Tigers’ leading scorer with four goals and two assists.

Scouting the Greyhounds
After opening the season with a 13-8 victory over Delaware last Saturday, the Greyhounds enter this week’s game as the 13th-ranked team in the USILA Division I Coaches’ Poll. The Greyhounds, who won their season opener for the third straight year, were led by graduate student Eric Lusby, who had four goals in his return from a knee injury. Meanwhile, junior long-stick midfielder Scott Ratliff was named as the ECAC Defensive Player of the Week after scoring a goal with a career-high seven ground balls and two caused turnovers in the win over Delaware. Loyola Coach Charley Toomey is in his seventh season as the Greyhounds’ leader; he has posted a 47-36 record.

Close Calls
The series between Towson and Loyola has provided some exciting moments for fans throughout the years. In the previous 53 meetings between the long-time rivals, there have been 21 games decided by two goals or less, including 15 one-goal affairs. The teams played three straight one-goal games from 1986 to 1988 with the Tigers taking two of those meetings. In fact, five of the last seven games played between the two teams have been decided by two goals or less, including last year’s 3-2 victory by the Greyhounds.

Towson-Loyola Series History
The Tigers and the Greyhounds will be meeting for the 54th time in a series which Towson leads by a 27-26 margin. However, the Greyhounds have won the last four games in the series, including last year’s 3-2 victory at Johnny Unitas® Stadium. Prior to the Greyhounds’ four-game win streak, the Tigers had won three straight games in the series, including a 9-8 victory at Diane Geppi-Aikens Field on Feb. 26, 2007. The teams have met once in the postseason when the Tigers earned a 16-11 win over the Greyhounds in the 1996 NCAA Tournament.

Last Year’s Towson-Loyola Meeting
Led by two goals from attackman Matt Langan, the 15th-ranked Greyhounds earned a 3-2 victory over the Tigers in a defensive battle at Johnny Unitas® Stadium last year. The Greyhounds, who defeated the Tigers for the fourth straight year, used a pair of goals in the final six minutes of regulation to keep the Tigers from earning their first win of the season. After attackman Mike Sawyer tied the game at 2-2 with 5:43 remaining in the fourth quarter, Langan scored the game-winning marker with 2:40 left on an unassisted goal past Towson goalkeeper Travis Love. Love led the Tigers with nine saves in a losing effort from midfielders Pat Britton and Alec Jernstedt accounted for the Tigers’ goals.

Towson Visits New Hampshire in BracketBuster Saturday on WNST

Posted on 18 February 2012 by WNST Staff

SETTING THE STAGE: Towson will be looking to snap its five-game losing streak Saturday as the Tigers travel to New Hampshire to take on the Wildcats in a BracketBuster contest. Tip time is set for 3 p.m. from Lundholm Gymnasium and the game can be heard live on WNST-AM (1570).

SERIES HISTORY: Saturday’s game will matchup former America East rivals Towson and New Hampshire. The squads met on the hardwood 13 times from 1996-2001 with the Tigers owning a 9-4 lead in the series. Towson has won four straight over New Hampshire and the teams have split six all-time meetings in Durham.

LAST TIME OUT: Towson senior Robert Nwankwo continued his stellar play against Colonial Athletic Association opponents, but his big effort wasn’t enough as the Tigers fell, 70-51, at Northeastern Tuesday evening. Nwankwo posted his 12th double-double with a season-high tying 19 points and 13 rebounds. The senior, who shot 7-for-11 from the field, has now registered a double-double in eight of his last 11 games. Sophomore Marcus Damas joined Nwankwo in double figures for Towson with 15 points to go along with a career-high five assists. Towson won the rebounding battle (30-29) for the ninth time in the last 10 games, but the Huskies scored 29 points off 19 Tiger turnovers.

SCOUTING THE WILDCATS: New Hampshire is riding a three game winning streak and the Wildcats have won four of their last five. Led by Alvin Abreu and Chandler Rhoads, New Hampshire (11-14, 6-8 America East) is coming off consecutive road wins at UMBC and Boston University. Abreu paces the squad in scoring at 13.8 points per game, while Rhoads averages 11.2 points and a team-high 2.6 assists per game. New Hampshire is a combined 2-2 against Vermont and UMBC, the only common opponents the Wildcats share with Towson. The Tigers are 0-2 against America East teams this year.

NWANKWO NEARING TOWSON GAMES PLAYED RECORD: Towson senior forward Robert Nwankwo has the potential to end his career having played the most games in Tiger men’s basketball history. Nwankwo has already played in 115 career games, tying him with John James (1990-94) for fifth all-time. With three regular season games remaining and a minimum of one game in the CAA Tournament, Nwankwo has the potential to play in at least 119 games. Former Tiger Rocky Coleman (2005-09) sits atop the list having played in 119 games. If Nwankwo is able to stay healthy, the senior will at least tie the record and with a Tiger win in the CAA Tournament, Nwankwo could hold the record by himself.

ANOTHER REBOUNDING WIN: With a narrow 30-29 rebounding edge against Northeastern on Tuesday, Towson has now won the battle of the boards in nine of its last 10 games. The Tigers are currently fourth in the CAA with a +1.6 rebounding advantage per game. On the offensive glass, Towson is second in the league in both offensive rebounds per game (13.5) and offensive rebounding percentage (38.6).

Towson Hopes to Stun Hopkins Friday on WNST

Posted on 17 February 2012 by WNST Staff

Opening Face-Off
Hoping to win back-to-back games to open the season for the first time since 2007, the Tigers will continue their three-game road trip on Friday evening when they make the short trip down Charles Street to face No. 2 Johns Hopkins at historic Homewood Field at 5 p.m. The game will be broadcast on WNST-AM 1570 with Spiro Morekas and Hunter Lochte on the call. In addition, the game will air live on ESPNU and available online at ESPN3.com.

Updating the Tigers
Now 1-0 on the season, the Tigers used a strong second half performance to win their season opener with a 12-10 road victory over Jacksonville on Saturday afternoon. The Tigers, who won their season opener for the first time since 2007, scored seven goals after the intermission to overcome a two-goal deficit and present Coach Shawn Nadelen with his first victory as the Tigers’ coach. Senior attackman Sean Maguire led the Tigers with three goals and an assist; all three of his goals came in the second half.

Scouting the Blue Jays
Ranked No. 2 in the preseason USILA Division I Coaches’ Poll, the Blue Jays will be opening their 125th season of college lacrosse when they host the Tigers on Friday night. The Blue Jays, who finished last year with a 13-3 record and a number three national ranking, reached the NCAA quarter-finals before losing to Denver by a 14-9 margin. Senior attackman Chris Boland, who earned honorable mention USILA All-America honors last year, returns as the Blue Jays’ leading scorer after a 54-point season in 2011. Coach Dave Pietramala, who was named as an assistant coach for the United States National Team last week, begins his 12th season at the helm. He has posted a 126-41 record at Johns Hopkins, including two NCAA championships.

On Second Thought
When the Tigers face No. 2 Johns Hopkins on Friday night, it will mark the highest-ranked opponent for the Tigers since Mar. 21, 2010 when Towson hosted top-ranked Virginia at Johnny Unitas® Stadium. The game will mark the 14th time since 1980 that the Tigers have faced the nation’s second-ranked team; the Tigers are 0-13 all-time in those contests. 

Lights, Camera, Action
Friday night’s game between Towson and No. 2 Johns Hopkins will mark the Tigers’ only scheduled television appearance during the regular season. Since the start of the 1999 season, the Tigers have been featured on television 45 times, including 19 times since 2007. Mike Corey will handle the play-by-play duties while Quint Kessenich will serve as the color analyst. John Kettering is the producer for Friday night’s game.

Towson-Johns Hopkins Series History
The Tigers and the Blue Jays will be meeting for the 40th time in a series which Johns Hopkins has dominated. The Blue Jays, who have won 16 straight games in the series, hold a 36-3 advantage over the Tigers. The Tigers’ last win in the series came on Apr. 17, 1996, a 13-12 victory over the Blue Jays at Homewood Field. Two of the Tigers’ three wins in the series have come on the road and the Tigers have not beaten the Blue Jays at Unitas Stadium since May 6, 1989, a span of 12 home games.

Last Year’s Towson-Johns Hopkins Meeting
Led by three goals from attackman Kyle Wharton, No. 11 Johns Hopkins used a five-goal run in the third quarter to break a 4-4 tie and earn a 10-6 victory over the Tigers in the season opener for both teams at Johnny Unitas® Stadium. Wharton, who tallied the 10th “hat trick” of his career, scored twice in a five-minute span as the Blue Jays sprinted out to a 9-4 lead they never relinquished. Attackman Zach Palmer scored two goals with three assists for the Blue Jays while midfielder Pat Britton scored twice to lead the Tigers in a losing effort.

Too Close for Comfort
Of the 39 previous meetings between the Tigers and the Blue Jays, 14 of them have been decided by two goals or less, including eight one-goal affairs. There have also been three overtime games, including a double overtime outing three years ago at Unitas Stadium. In addition, all three of the Tigers’ wins in the series have been by a one-goal margin. The Tigers posted a 9-8 double overtime victory in 1989 at Minnegan Stadium before earning a 14-13 verdict three years later at Homewood Field. In 1996, the Tigers won by a 13-12 count at Homewood Field.
