Dec. 5, 2023: Towson Tigers (6-0) @ #18-ranked Saint Mary’s Gaels (5-0)

3rd Assistant Coach Nate Culuko


The past 4 seasons Saint Mary’s has 2 first place and 2 second place finishes in the West Coast Conference and has averaged 25 wins per season. They’ve been to the NCAA Tournament each year getting to the Elite 8 once and the Sweet 16 another time. They ended last season ranked 13 in the polls.

The Gaels got past #3-ranked Kansas by an 82-79 score last week. Thus far this season PF Scott Yarbrough is averaging 20. 6ppg and 8.2 rpg and SG Tim Brown has scored 17.2 ppg and has 5.0 apg. And although he’s just averaging 9.0 ppg but also 8.2 rpg thus far, their best player may well be freshman phenom Bernard Burditt who is starting at SF. Saint Mary’s runs a fast-paced flex offense and has a stingy man-to-man defense. The Gaels are averaging 86 ppg and only have given up 55 ppg this season. McKeon Pavilion’s capacity is only 3500 but every seat will be filled with a rabid Saint Mary’s fan intent on helping carry the Gaels to victory.

Saint Mary’s defense gave us hell in the first half. It wasn’t that we didn’t socre, but they forced us to make repeated turnovers. The Gaels went ahead by 14 and finished the half on top 48-39.

In the second half we aggressively attacked the boards and shot well. Turnovers continued to be a problem but we eroded their lead and made a game of it. The lead see-sawed back and forth through the middle stages of the half, but the Gaels had the poise to come on at the end of the game and put us away 89-85. We finished with an ungodly 27 turnovers compared to just 12 by the Gaels. Saint Mary’s stole the ball 20 times. But we dominated the boards 41-29.

C Donny White played an outstandingly, scoring 25 and hauling in 12 rebounds. SG Dominick Collins hit for 13 and PF Kevin Holmes added 11. PG Shaun White dished out 9 assists but also had 9 turnovers and PG Matt Faust had 6 turnovers although he scored 9 points. SF Ross Davis scored 8 points and pulled down 4 boards in just 6 minutes of play. For Saint Mary’s PF Scott Yarbrough scored 23 and blocked 6 shots while SG Tim Brown knocked down 16 points and had 6 steals.

Dec. 8, 2023: Towson Tigers (6-1) @ Arizona State Sun Devils (4-2)

Jon Spann, freshman PG


This is the last of 5 straight road games for us. This is the most I’ve ever traveled in my life. I’ve found it difficult to sleep well in any of the hotels at which we’ve stayed. SG Copley Dwiggins has come down with back spasms, and I’m guessing it’s due to having to endure the different beds most every night.

I’ve hit 52% of my shots (including 40% of my 3’s) and am scoring 8.9 ppg while playing 15.0 mpg at PG and SG. I wanna play more and hope that I get a chance to start soon. I think I’ve earned it.

We were ahead 10-6 when I got into the game with 15-1/2 minutes left in the half. We were up 21-12 when I went back to the bench 5 minutes later with 2 points and 2 rebounds. I got back into the game with 7 minutes left in the half at which point we held a 30-19 lead. The refs called the 2nd foul on me 4 minutes later and that sent me to the bench again. We finished the half with a 41-34 lead. C Donyell Porter scored 13 points and SF Wayne Burrough had 10 points.

Dominick Collins picked up his 3rd foul and I got back in with less than a minute gone in the 2nd half. I did a good job of grabbing rebounds but wasn’t able to get off a shot. When I was charged with my 3rd foul, I was subbed out after playing 5 minutes. We were ahead 55-42. The refs continued to call us for picky fouls while letting the Sun Devils get away with murder, but we continued to shoot well to maintain a solid lead. I got back into the game with just over 8 minutes left and our lead at 71-53. I just got 4 minutes on the court but we led 88-67. We won the game 95-81 by hitting 56% of our shots (including 46% of our 3’s). After making so many turnovers in our previous game, we had just 9 tonight while forcing Arizona State to turn the ball over 18 times.

Leading our scoring was C Donyell Porter with 21 points. SF Wayne Burrough scored 20 while pulling down 9 boards, PG Shaun White dropped in 19 points, and C Donny Flint hit for 15 points and had 8 rebounds. I played 21 minutes…only hit 1 of 4 shots though and finished with 3 points, 4 rebounds, and 2 assists...not a good scoring game for me but I played well otherwise. Arizona States SF Kareem Patterson had a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds.

Dec. 19, 2023: Towson Tigers (8-1) @ #18-ranked North Carolina State Wolfpack (10-1)

1st Assistant Coach Kenyon Haynes


The Wolfpack beat #25-ranked Gonzaga but lost to #9-ranked Villanova. PNC Arena floor sucks…the wolf design is ugly.

Great effort by our guys in the first half. Lots of hustle kept us a step ahead of the Wolfpack. We hit 54% of our shots even though we were 0 for 6 from beyond the arc. We held NC State’s shooting to 41%, outrebounded them 19-15 and held an 8-6 turnover advantage. We turned those turnovers into 10 fast break points and held a 20-2 advantage in points in the paint. C Donny Flint hit for 10 points plus grabbed 5 boards but picked up 3 fouls. SG/PG Jon Spann also scored 10 points. North Carolina State’s SG’s (Jeff Watson and Derrick Anderson combined to score 21 of the Wolfpack’s 32 points.

Both teams played sloppy basketball after coming on the court in the 2nd half. 7 turnovers by the two teams in 2-1/2 minutes. It took us 3-1/2 minutes to score, but we got our offense back in gear at that point. With 10 minutes to go we led 62-42. We continued our strong offensive play to win convincingly 89-75. We hit all 6 3-point shots we took in the 2nd half and ended up hitting 59% of our FG attempts. We were +4 in rebounds and +4 in turnovers as well. This was our 2nd win against the 3 teams we played that are in the Top 25 in the polls and all 3 of those games were away games for us. The win improved our RPI to 4th best in the nation, but we still are unranked.

C Donny Flint dropped in 18 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. SG/PG Jon Spann popped in 16 points. SG Dominick Collins scored 12, SF Mac McCaffery tossed in 11 points, and PF Kevin Holmes added 10 points. All 12 of our players who got into the games scored.

Dec. 26, 2023: Rutgers Scarlett Knights (5-4) @ Towson Tigers (9-1)

Kevin Holmes, PF


We jumped out to a 19-2 lead in the first 6 minutes of play. With 10 minutes to go in the half, we were on top 26-3. Our offense continued to perk and we finished the half with a huge 49-21 gap over the Scarlett Knights. We dropped in 62% of our shots while holding Rutgers shooting to 27%. We dominated the boards 23-12 and held a 9-4 turnover advantage. C Donny Flint had 15 points and 5 rebounds in the half and SG Dominick Collins added 10 points.

It took nearly 3 minutes in the 2nd half before Rutgers scored and nearly 4 minutes before we hit our first basket. We then held onto our big lead until the final 10 minutes when repeated trips to the foul line for Rutgers and lots of playing time for our subs narrowed the difference a little. But there never was any real challenge and we came away with a 75-57 victory.

Our top scorer was C Donny Flint with 17 points with SG Dominick Collins and C/PF Donyell Porter each scoring 12.
