#WNSTSweet16 list highlights Baltimore’s best ever college hoopsters

#8 – Tywain McKee, Coppin State



In the storied history of Coppin State basketball, no player has scored more points (2,158) than Tywain McKee.

HERE IS AN OUTSTANDING PIECE ON McKEE written by former Sun writer Ken Murray.  It chronicles McKee’s difficult childhood and his rise to prominence at Coppin State.

Having personally seen McKee play several times, I can say without hesitation there are few players I’ve seen in Baltimore college basketball who could take over game at the rate McKee could during his days at Coppin.

    Great list. I would offer a few other names for an honorable mention list: Roger Dickens (TSU), Pat McKinley (TSU), Brian Matthews (TSU), Ronald Smith (U of B), Tony Carter (Coppin St), Yarborough Roberts (Morgan St), and Teddy Jones (U of B).

    Excellent List and research, Drew. Struck a chord of many memories of greatness. My only honorable mention would be, Maurice “Mo” Cannon (Loyola College).
