TOWSON, Md. - Junior Jerrelle Benimon scored 14 points and grabbed 13 rebounds as the Tigers (18-13, 13-5 CAA) closed down the Towson Center with a historic 67-64 victory over Hofstra before a crowd of 4,119 on Saturday afternoon.
By posting their 18th win of the season, the Tigers completed a 17.5 game improvement over last year’s team that finished 1-31. Mercer posted a 17 game turnaround during the 2002-03 season and that was matched by UTEP the following year. The two have shared the record until today."
You might not love #CAAHoops, but you have to reckanize the historical analogy.
“As we went wheels-up, I couldn’t help but to think of Pat Kennedy going all Sir Walter Raleigh and throwing his trenchcoat under the tire of Towson’s shipwrecked bus in last year’s snowstorm. Somehow that was a fitting moment–a desperate measure by a desperate leader, trying to get a basketball team out of the ditch. A jacket is not rescuing a bus, and Kennedy wasn’t Quint.
Towson AD Mike Waddell needed a bigger boat.
The change at the top was inevitable and perhaps a year late, but Waddell deserves credit for finding the right leader in Pat Skerry.”
