TOWSON, Md. –The Towson Tigers will look considerably different in 2018-19 in comparison to their 2017-18 roster.

After an 18-win season, the Tigers will be without their top five scorers heading into the 2018-19 season. Towson lost three players to graduation, and another two players decided to transfer out of the program.

Leading scorer Zane Martin (19.8 ppg) opted to transfer from the team after his sophomore season, as did fellow sophomore Justin Gorham (9.8 ppg, 6.7 rpg). While both players have yet to commit to new programs, it’s unlikely that they’ll be back in a Towson jersey.

Add in the graduation of Brian Starr, Mike Morsell, and Eddie Keith II, and the Tigers lose over 60 points per game of production from their 2017-18 roster (60.6) ppg.

On Monday, the Tigers got some good news on the transfer market. While the addition won’t help them right away in 2018-19, it does add an intriguing piece to the puzzle for the 2019-20 season and beyond. Towson landed a commitment from guard Juwan Gray, who will join the Tigers after two years on the West Coast with the San Diego Toreros. Continue reading Towson Lands San Diego Transfer Juwan Gray

Things get underway Friday, November 11th at Noon EST with the first regular season game of the season, and there will be a plethora of talent on display across all 32 conferences all season long.

Non-Power Five Guards Who Will Be Household Names in 2016-17: Seniors, Part Three

[Insert Content]
Nick Lindner is one of the marquee players in the Patriot League that nobody is talking about. He’s one of ten senior guards from across the country who will become household names by year’s end.
With over 5,200 players slated to play collegiate basketball in Division I this season, there are talented players from coast to coast. Some of them are household names, while there are plenty of players who people haven’t heard of, but are demanding of your attention.

The majority of fans tend to focus on the power five conferences, turning a blind eye to the smaller programs. When you dig deeper, you’ll see that the non-power five schools have players who could just as easily play for a power conference program.

When it comes to senior guards in the NCAA, there are talented players from coast to coast. With so many players, it was nearly impossible to cut the list down to just 10 players without leaving star-calibre players off the list.

So, just like the folks over at The Hoops Column did with their lists of Non-Power Five Guards (Part 1Part 2Part 3) and Forwards (Part 1), we have broken the senior guards up into three parts.

Each will have 10 senior guards who will become household names in 2016-17, along with five others to keep a flag on as the season progresses.

**Note: Justin Robinson burst onto the scene last season, and Quinton Hooker was named the CCR Player of the Year. Both didn’t make the list, as we feel that they are already household names on a much larger scale than some of the other senior guards.** Continue reading Non-Power Five Guards Who Will Be Household Names in 2016-17: Seniors, Part Three

The Arizona Wildcats have had a roller-coaster of an offseason, and it’s only the end of April. The likes of Brandon Ashley, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Stanley Johnson all declared for the NBA Draft. Add in the loss of TJ McConnell who graduated, and Sean Miller is without a big part of his team who went 34 – 4 in 2014-15.

Fortunately for the Wildcats, Friday was a better day for the program. It was announced that big man Kaleb Tarczewski was returning for his senior season, which is a big boost for the program. They also landed one of the more coveted transfers from this off-season.

San Francisco Dons graduate transfer Mark Tollefsen chose to play at Arizona, and he is eligible to play immediately in 2015-16. Continue reading San Francisco Transfer Mark Tollefsen Chooses Arizona
