#WNSTSweet16 list highlights Baltimore’s best ever college hoopsters

#2 – Kurk Lee, Towson

There’s literally no doubt Kurk Lee would be on top of this list had he played four seasons at Towson instead of two.  All he did in two campaigns as a Tiger was put himself near the top of virtually scoring record at (then) Towson State, many of which still stand today.

Here’s his composite bio from the Towson Hall of Fame media guide.

Honorable mention All-American who scored 1,541 points in two seasons as a Tiger…was the East Coast Conference Player of the Year as a junior and senior…first team All-ECC twice…led ECC in scoring and steals twice…ECC Player of the Week nine times…led ECC in free throw percentage (.881) as a junior…averaged 25.4 ppg as a junior and 26.0 ppg as a senior…led Tigers to 1990 ECC championship and berth in NCAA Tournament…ECC Tournament’s MVP  in 1990…scored 30 points in NCAA Tournament against Oklahoma…owns Towson record with 25.7 career scoring average and 26.0 scoring average in single season…a member of Towson’s Athletic Hall of Fame.

Make sure you read that again.  Kurk Lee averaged 25.7 points-per-game in two seasons at Towson!

    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).
