Tribe 56 , Towson 69

Turnovers and poor free throw shooting really hampered the Tribe tonight in a tough 69-56 loss. The College drops to 6-14 overall and 1-9 in the CAA.

McDowell lifts Tribe

Freshman forward Quinn McDowell has his two consecutive three-pointers to keep the Tribe within striking distance at 61-54. The College has to get stops down the stretch in order to have a chance.

Towson pulling away

A 10-5 Towson gave them a 56-46 lead. Tribe Head Coach Tony Shaver called a thirty-second timeout to stop it. How the Tribe respond?

Turnovers continue

Tribe starts the second-half with four quick turnovers, adding up to 16 so far tonight. The College is really missing Schneider’s ball-handling tonight.

Luckily, Sumner has found his stroke tonight. He has 19 on 6 of 11 shooting, including 4 of 7 from deep.

Small crowd tonight

Ugly weather and a team on a five-game losing streak are not a good combination for attendance. Tonight’s crowd is 1,237.

Turnovers adding up

The College went through an ugly stretch late in the first half, committing four turnovers in five possessions. It proved costly, allowing Towson to take a one-point lead at the break 37-36.

Tribe’s early lead gone

After sophomore guard Matt McFadden’s baseline jumper the College had a 12-4 lead, now – like most recent games – the Tribe has allowed Towson to cut into the lead. The game is tied 23-23 now.

The College has to respond in the final eight minutes of the half.

Towson’s Hairston picks up third foul

Towson’s best post player Junior Hairston is on the bench with three fouls. The Tribe has to take advantage of this opportunity.

Sumner finds his shot

Sumner came out and hit back-to-back three-pointers to give the Tribe an early 6-2 lead. Without Schneider playing tonight, the College needs the Sumner from early-season games tonight.

No Schneider tonight

The Tribe cannot catch a break. Riding a five-game losing streak, the College will play without starting junior guard David Schneider, who is out with a right ankle sprain.

The Tribe starts junior forward Danny Sumner, senior forward Peter Stein, freshman guard Kendrix Brown, freshman forward Quinn McDowell and junior guard Sean McCurdy.
