#WNSTSweet16 list highlights Baltimore’s best ever college hoopsters

#14 – Gary Neal, Towson University

There’s little doubt that Gary Neal would have challenged every Towson scoring record had he spent four years as a Tiger instead of two.

As it is, now, he’s still one of the most prolific scorers to ever wear the Black and Gold and currently plays for the Charlotte Bobcats (Hornets) in the NBA.

Neal showed up at Towson at a time when the program was in desperate need of SOMETHING (ANYTHING) to jump start the Pat Kennedy era.  Although the team didn’t make an NCAA tournament while Neal was at Towson, he established himself as one of the best offensive players in the entire conference.  No Towson basketball player has ever accomplished as much in the NBA as Neal, now in his 4th season in the league.

    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).
