CAA Tournament Tips Off Tonight In Baltimore

Posted on 07 March 2014 by Robert Canady

After having to miss last year’s Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) tournament due to low APR scores under a previous administration, the Towson University basketball team will finally get to take the floor in postseason action this weekend.

First Mariner Arena Will Host the CAA Tournament For Three Years Beginning Tonight.

The Tigers finished the season with a Division 1 school record 22-9 (13-3 CAA) campaign.  That was good enough for second place in the league and the No. 2 seed in the tournament which begins tonight at First Mariner Arena in downtown Baltimore.

James Madison University the defending CAA champions will be the Tigers opponent  in the first round game played at 6:00 PM tomorrow night, as the third game in the four game slate.  The Dukes lost a lot of players from that Championship team, but bring in a very talented young group, that played the Tigers tough in the two conference games this year, before ultimately losing both contests.

Below is a look at the matchups for the first round game tonight and the quarterfinal matchups that take place tomorrow, the teams CAA record is in parenthesis.

First Round:  #8 Hofstra  9-22 (5-11) vs. #9 UNCW 9-22 (3-13) Friday night at 7:00 PM

Hofstra swept the regular season series between the two teams, winning 69-64 in Wilmington, and 61-52 at home.   The Pride are led by graduate student transfer Zeke Upshaw who was selected to the All CAA 2nd team at last night’s awards banquet.  He was second in the league in scoring at 19.6 points per game.

UNCW, lost its first 10 conference games before finally breaking through with a surprise win against Towson in Wilmington on February 10th.  The Seahawks started using a five man substitution plan during that game.  In doing so they finished the last six games of the season with a 3-3 record.  Junior Cedric Williams is the leading scorer for UNCW putting in 11 points per game.

Quarterfinals

Saturday 12:00 PM #1 Delaware 22-9 (14-2) vs. Hofstra/UNCW winner 

The Blue Hens come into the tournament off the most successful regular season ever for a Delaware basketball team.  As a result Head Coach Monte Ross was voted CAA Coach Of The Year.  Delaware started the conference season 11-0 before losing to Towson 78-63 at SECU Arena in February.   Devon Saddler  a senior leads a dynamic scoring attack  with 20.2 points per game.  Baltimore native Davon Usher a graduate student transfer from Mississippi Valley State added 19.4 points per game, good enough for third in the CAA.   Jarvis Threatt missed six games due to a suspension which did not allow him to qualify for league leaders but he averaged 17.9 points a game.

In addition  junior Kyle Anderson  (11.1) and  senior Carl Baptiste (10.9) gave the Blue Hens five players scoring in double figures.

Devon Saddler A First Team All CAA Selection-courtsey of CollegeChalkTalk

Saturday 2:30 PM #4 Drexel 16-13 (8-8) vs. #5 Northeastern  10-20 (7-9)

Drexel battled injuries all season long, at one point having four starters miss multiple games.  The biggest injury came in the pre-season when junior guard Damion Lee a pre-season favorite to be 1st team all CAA tore an ACL that would cause him to miss the entire year.

Despite the injuries, the Dragons predicted to finish second in the CAA polls were able to secure a No. 4 seed.   Drexel  is led by first team All CAA guard Frantz Massenat a senior who led the team in scoring (17.4) and the CAA in assist with 4.8 assist per game.

Northeastern features all CAA Defensive Player of the Year Scott Eatherton, who battled the Tigers Jerrelle Benimon most of the year for the nations lead in double/doubles before finishing second to Benimon in that category with 18. Eatherton put up 15.5 points and grabbed 10.1 rebounds per game for the Huskies.

The two teams split the season series.

Saturday 6:00 PM #2 Towson 22-9 (13-3) vs. #7 James Madison 11-19 (6-10)

We’ve already talked about the matchup earlier, so I’ll just add some of the awards the Tigers picked up at the dinner last night.

Jerrelle Benimon: CAA Player of the Year, First Team ALL CAA, All CAA Defensive Team

Marcus Damas: All CAA Third Team

Rafriel Guthrie: All CAA Third Team

Timajh Parker-Rivera: CAA All Academic Team, CAA Dean Ehlers Leadership Award

Coach Pat Skerry was also one of only three coaches that received votes for Coach of the Year,  along with Tony Shaver of William & Mary and Ross.

Jerrelle Benimon Voted CAA Player of the Year for the second consecutive year, led the nation in rebounding and double/doubles.

Saturday 8:30 PM #3 William & Mary 18-11 (10-6) vs. #6 College of Charleston 14-17 (6-10)

The Tribe spent a good part of the year either tied or just one game behind Towson for second place in the CAA before going 3-3 in its final six games.  However, two of those losses came at the hands of Towson. The Tigers defeated the Tribe 85-70 on the 15th of February, and closed out the regular season with a thrilling 70-68 win at SECU last Saturday.

William and Mary is led by First Team All CAA Guard Marcus Thornton, who finished 5th in the CAA with 18.6 points per game, and led all CAA players with 85 three-pointers on the season. The Tribe also feature the Rookie of the Year for the CAA in freshman Omar Prewitt.

College of Charleston is a newcomer to the CAA this year and found  the quality of the teams in the CAA was much deeper than the Southern Conference in which it left after last season.

The Cougars are led by senior Willis Hall (12.2) and they allowed the fewest points scored per game at 62.5 of any team in the conference.

The quarterfinals are sure to produce a lot of what the regular season featured, close games that come down to the last few possessions, and possibly overtimes.  While Delaware and Towson are the decided favorites, and a lot of people would consider a Tigers/Blue Hens finals matchup a marquee event on Monday night, there are seven other teams that feel they are very capable of ruining the hopes of either the No.1 or No. 2 seed.

Towson looks for fifth straight win Wednesday at James Madison

Posted on 25 February 2014 by WNST Staff

TOWSON SEEKS FIFTH STRAIGHT WIN ON WEDNESDAY AT JAMES MADISON
Tigers would match largest single-season win total in program history at Division I level with victory

HARRISONBURG, Va. – The Towson men’s basketball team will seek to match its longest win streak of the season on Wednesdaywhen the Tigers travel to James Madison to conclude a three-game road swing.

The Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) battle, set to tip at 7 p.m., can be heard live on the Towson Sports Network (TSN) with Spiro Morekas and Vince Angotti on the call.

Towson (20-9, 11-3 CAA) has won four straight games and eight of its last nine after picking up road wins at Northeastern (79-70) and Hofstra (83-77) last week. With their next win, the Tigers will match a school record for most wins at the Division I level.

Towson enters this week just a game behind Delaware for first-place in the CAA standings. The Blue Hens travel to UNC Wilmingtonon Wednesday before closing the regular season at College of Charleston on Saturday. The Tigers will return home to SECU Arena, where they are 14-1 this season, to wrap up their regular season against William & Mary on Saturday.

Senior Jerrelle Benimon earned his third CAA Player of the Week award on Monday after averaging 18.3 points, 10.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists while shooting 63.3 percent from the floor in Towson’s three wins last week. The All-American candidate leads the NCAA with 18 double-doubles and ranks third in rebounding by averaging 11.4 boards a game.

James Madison (11-17, 6-8 CAA) has won two straight games and three of its last four. The Dukes haven’t played in a week since handing Drexel a dramatic 63-61 overtime defeat. JMU is led by sophomore Andre Nation, who averaged 15.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per game.

The Dukes lead the all-time series with Towson, 27-12, but the Tigers have won two of the last three meetings, including an 80-71 victory inside SECU Arena earlier this month. Senior Rafriel Guthrie led the Tigers with 17 points in that win.

Towson looks for third straight win Tuesday against James Madison

Posted on 04 February 2014 by WNST Staff

TOWSON HOSTS DEFENDING CAA CHAMPION JAMES MADISON ON TUESDAY
Tigers seeking third straight win and 15th victory of the season

TOWSON, Md. - The Towson men’s basketball team will be seeking its third straight win on Tuesday when the Tigers host defending Colonial Athletic Association Champion James Madison inside SECU Arena at 7 p.m.

The game can be seen live on Comcast SportsNet with Al Koken and Glenn Consor on the call. Fans can also listen to the game on the Towson Sports Network (TSN) with Spiro Morekas and Vince Angotti calling the action.

A victory on Tuesday would give Towson (14-8, 5-2 CAA) its fourth winning streak of three or more games this season. The Tigers have won 15 of their last 16 home games and are 11-1 inside SECU Arena, including a 75-73 victory over Drexel on Saturday.

Senior Jerrelle Benimon, who enters the week tied for the national lead in double-doubles (14) and is fourth in the country in rebounding (11.3 rpg), paced the Tigers with 25 points and eight rebounds against the Dragons. Classmate Rafriel Guthrie scored in double figures for the fifth straight game on Saturday, posting 18 points.

Towson, which enters the week in second-place in the CAA standings, owns its best record after 22 games since also starting the 1995-96 season 14-8. The Tigers have not won 14 games this early in a season since 1977-78.

James Madison (8-14, 3-5 CAA), which won the 2013 CAA Tournament to advance to the NCAA Tournament, has won two of its last three games. The Dukes are led by sophomore guard Andre Nation, who averages 16.6 points and 5.7 rebounds. JMU is allowing just 67.5 points per game, second best in the CAA.

The 15-7-0 hopes no one volunteered the Houston Texans as tribute

The 15-7-0 hopes no one volunteered the Houston Texans as tribute

Posted on 25 November 2013 by Glenn Clark

15 positive observations from the weekend of football, seven not so positive observations and we acknowledge a “zero” from outside the world of football. A reminder, there’s never any Ravens game analysis here. We do plenty of that elsewhere. It’s a trip through the weekend of football via videos, GIFs, memes, pictures, links, Tweets and shtick. This isn’t where we do Ravens stuff. You can find plenty of that…like…everywhere else on the site.

Did you know that you were exactly like a Major League Baseball GM? It’s true. For example: how many good baseball players have you acquired this offseason?

Same as Dan Duquette.

15 Positive Observations…

1. The singular purpose of Number 1 in this week’s 15-7-0 is to get to the part of Monday afternoon’s show where Ryan Chell as to pronounce the name “Seyi Ajirotutu” and then put my feet up, light a cigar and just plain enjoy being alive.

To celebrate the big win, Philip Rivers wore the lovely gift he received from Stan Marsh’s grandfather.

Here’s…I have no freaking idea what this is. NONE.

2. Navy QB Keenan Reynolds had seven touchdowns Friday night. CJ Spiller has one touchdown in 2013. It’s cool though, because I totally picked Reynolds as the second overall pick in my fantasy football draft. What’s that? I picked Spiller there? Oh I just quit.

Just when you thought Navy motivational videos couldn’t get any better.

Three weeks to go, but here’s this.

3. Towson will face the winner of Sacred Heart/Fordham in the second round of the FCS playoffs December 7th. I’m sorry, major college football fans. I probably should’ve started this post by explaining that “playoffs” are what is used by every other sport or at every other level to determine a champion. But hey! You guys are getting one soon too! Kinda.

Terrance West has 30TD’s. THIRTY. Do the Ravens have 30TD’s?

4. Oh, so Cam Newton rallied his team from down late in the second half to improve to 8-3? That’s supposed to get me to buy into him? I’ll buy into him when he beats the Bears. The ’86 Bears. Until then he’s just like every other freakishly athletic former Heisman Trophy winning specimen who has defeated the 49ers and Patriots in the last month. Dime a dozen.

Acting like LeBron James will probably be a great way to win over fans though.

5. The Steelers will come into the Thanksgiving night showdown in Baltimore winners of five of their last seven. It reminds me of a popular limerick my grandfather taught me growing up. It went like this. Ahem. “Screw the Steelers”. Wait, did I say it was a limerick? I meant “a drunken yell”. I get them confused so often.

No one will put this into words any better than Mike Polk.

Also, Billy Cundiff did something familiar.

Towson wraps regular season Saturday at James Madison

Posted on 22 November 2013 by WNST Staff

No. 7 TIGERS HOST JAMES MADISON IN REGULAR SEASON FINALE

Tigers To Honor 19 Seniors In Pre-Game Ceremonies

TOWSON, Md. –  Closing out the regular season against Colonial Athletic Association rival James Madison University, Coach Rob Ambrose and the Towson University football team will try to improve their resume for the NCAA FCS playoffs when they host the Dukes on Saturday, Nov. 23 at 3:30 p.m.

The Tigers, who are 9-2 overall and 5-2 in the CAA, have been ranked in the NCAA FCS for most of the season. They should be part of the playoff field but a win over James Madison could earn them a top eight seed.

The game will be televised on NBC SportsNet with Todd Harris and Anthony Herron calling the action.

“We don’t talk about the playoffs in the locker room, says Ambrose, who has guided the Tigers to their third consecutive winning season. “That’s a wasted conversation. We just focus on the next play and the next game. If we win, all of those things will take care of themselves.”

The Dukes, who have gone to the NCAA playoffs five times since 2004, bring a 6-5 overall record and a 3-4 CAA mark to Unitas Stadium for the 25th meeting between the schools.

James Madison holds an 18-5-1 series lead over Towson and has won the last eight meetings in a row. However, the last two games have been very close. In 2010, the Dukes escaped Unitas Stadium with a 17-13 victory. Last year, JMU had to come from behind to edge Towson in the final minute, 13-10.

“We see the bigger picture but we have to focus on the things that make us who we are,” adds Ambrose. “We still have a home game against a tough opponent and it is Senior Day for a group of seniors that helped lay the foundation for success long after this season and we need to celebrate them in the right way.”

The Tigers will be honoring a class that went from rags-to-riches over the last four seasons. When the seniors were freshmen in 2010, they had to endure a 1-10 season. However, they have led Towson to a 25-9 record over the last three seasons.

On Saturday, the Tigers will be honoring quarterback Peter Athens (Huntingtown H.S./Huntingtown, Md.), linebacker Telvion Clark (Granby H.S./Norfolk, Va.), guard Anthony Davis (Clover Hill H.S./Midlothian, Va.), linebacker Anthony DiSanzo (Don Bosco Prep/Fair Lawn, N.J.), kicker Drew Evangelista (Cedar Grove H.S./Cedar Grove, N.J.), tight end Will Fleming (Archbishop Hoban H.S./Akron, Ohio), defensive tackle Arnold Farmer (Poly H.S./Baltimore, Md.), linebacker Monte Gaddis (Central Catholic H.S./Cleveland, Ohio),  tackleRandall Harris (DuVal H.S./Lanham, Md.), guard Charles Johnson (Poly H.S./Baltimore, Md.), wide receiverLeon Kinnard (Loyola H.S./Reisterstown, Md.), cornerback Jordan Love (Deep Run H.S./Washington, D.C.), cornerback Ryan Mays (Franklin H.S./Reisterstown, Md.), tight end James Oboh (Sherwood H.S./Olney, Md.), running back Sterlin Phifer (Landstown H.S./Virginia Beach, Va.), tackle Eric Pike (DuVal H.S./Landover, Md.), linebacker Eric Schuster (Reservoir H.S./Laurel, Md.), center Doug Shaw (Loyola H.S./Woodbine, Md.) and kicker D.J. Soven (Cypress Bay H.S./Weston, Fla.).

In that group of 19 seniors, 10 of them are Maryland natives.

In addition, the senior class includes two All-Americans (Pike and Love) and five players who have earned All-Colonial Athletic Association honors.

Saturday’s game will be an important one for Pike, the Tigers’ 6-5, 298-pound tackle. On the Tigers’ first offensive play, he will set a school record by playing in the 46th game of his college career. Not only has he played in 46 games, he has also started every one of them.

The Tigers are coming off an impressive 15-9 victory at No. 16 William & Mary last week. Despite being held to their lowest offensive totals in 18 games, the Tigers pulled out the win by shutting out the Tribe in the second half.

In Saturday’s game, junior Terrance West (Northwestern H.S./Baltimore, Md.) will lead the Tiger ground game against the top run defense in the CAA. James Madison is allowing only 97.5 rushing yards per game and has given up only eight rushing touchdowns.

West leads NCAA FCS with 1,765 rushing yards on 279 carries, an average of 160.5 rushing yards per game. He also leads the nation with 28 touchdowns on the season.

Freshman Darius Victor (Northwestern H.S./Hyattsville, Md.) has also been a major part of the Tigers’ success on the ground. He has rushed for 411 yards on 64 carries with five touchdowns. He is averaging 6.4 yards per carry.

The Tigers, who top the CAA in scoring with a school record 418 points, also lead the CAA with 2,711 rushing yards and 5,237 yards of total offense. They have scored 57 touchdowns this season, matching the school record set in 2011.

Clark leads the Tiger defense with 99 tackles in 11 games. He has 4.5 sacks and 9.5 tackles for lost yardage. Clark has forced four fumbles and recovered three fumbles. A two-time selection as the CAA Defensive Player of the Week, he was the National Defensive Player of the Week after the Tigers’ win at Richmond.

Gaddis is tied for second on the team with 77 tackles in 11 games. He has two interceptions and one recovered fumble.

The Tigers, who have won 13 of their last 15 games dating back to last season, will learn their NCAA FCS post-season fate on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 11:30 a.m. The team will gather at PAWS in the University Union to watch the selection show. Towson football fans are invited to join the team at PAWS.

RICHMOND, Va. - The Towson University football team will make two appearances on the NBC Sports Network this season as part of the Colonial Athletic Association’s package on the network.

On October 12, NBC Sports visits Minnegan Field at Johnny Unitas® Stadium for the Tigers’ CAA showdown with Villanova at 7:00 p.m. Towson and Villanova were two of four teams that shared the CAA championship last season.

On November 23, NBC Sports Network will deliver its final CAA Football game of the season when James Madison visits Unitas Stadium for the regular season finale at 3:30 p.m.

The NBC Sports Network schedule kicks off on September 7 at 3:30 p.m.  when Delaware hosts Delaware State in the schools’ annual “Route 1 Rivalry” matchup.

NBC Sports Network will deliver its final CAA Football game of the season on November 23 with the Towson-James Madison matchup.
