Towson entered Monday's matchup with Delaware clinging to hope that it could make a late-season push to fulfill its preseason expectations as favorites to win the Colonial Athletic Association. Another loss to the red-hot Blue Hens, and the Tigers would have to resign themselves to, at best, a No. 2 seed in next month's conference tournament. Jerrelle Benimon wouldn't have any of it. The preseason CAA Player of the Year put on a show, scoring 25 points and pulling down 18 rebounds, leading the Tigers to a 78-63 victory at SECU Arena and handing Delaware its first conference loss of the season.

In 24 years as a men's college basketball head coach, Temple's Fran Dunphy has seen his fair share of players graduate to the NBA. He thinks Towson senior Jerrelle Benimon has what it takes to go to that next level. “I think he's got a really good chance to be in the league next year because he's got good energy, he's got a good enthusiasm, he finishes at the rim,” Dunphy said after watching the 6-foot-8, 245-pound forward score a career-high 32 points and grab 10 rebounds in the Tigers' 75-69 win against the Owls Wednesday night at SECU Arena.

WASHINGTON -- When Washington Wizards head coach Randy Wittman broke the huddle, concluding a pre-draft workout for NBA prospects at the Verizon Center Thursday, Towson forward Jerrelle Benimon proceeded to the sideline with his head down. Benimon took his seat and stared into space, contemplating the last drill of the day during which he missed five of six jump shot attempts. "I couldn't get that last shot," he looked up to tell the first player that approached him. That player was familiar to Benimon - Delaware guard and South Baltimore native Davon Usher.

The transformation of the Towson men's basketball program continued today with the addition of the America East Rookie of the Year. Four McGlynn, who averaged 12 points for Vermont as a freshman, has committed to the Tigers. The York, Pa., native will sit out the 2012-13 season and have three years of eligibility remaining. “We're ecstatic about getting Four,” Towson coach Pat Skerry said in a news release. “We think he is potentially one of the premier shooters in the country.

The ability of the Towson men's basketball team to get to the hoop is exemplified in the talents of senior forwards Jerrelle Benimon and Marcus Damas and senior point guard Mike Burwell. In response, opponents are daring the Tigers (10-6 overall and 1-0 in the Colonial Athletic Association) to produce from the outside. As Towson prepares to play Drexel (9-6, 1-1) on Tuesday night, coach Pat Skerry said he has noticed that opposing teams are resorting to zone defenses against the Tigers, who have converted less than 37 percent of its attempts from behind the 3-point line in five of its last seven games.

It was going to be Jerrelle Benimon's show. Towson's star forward knew it, his coach knew it and much of the announced crowd of 4,051 at Baltimore Arena probably sensed it as well. Seeking to advance to its first-ever Colonial Athletic Association tournament championship game and take the next big step in the program's revival, second-seeded Towson trailed William and Mary throughout Sunday night's second half. “It's about to get ugly,” Benimon, the two-time CAA Player of the Year, shouted to no one in particular as he ran back on defense after converting a difficult shot with 12:01 left.

Towson's story was neatly summarized on the black T-shirts players wore during warm-ups. “Started from the bottom,” the shirts said in block lettering, along with “1-31,” the team's record two seasons ago. Left unsaid was that this moment - the second-seeded Tigers' opening game in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament Saturday night at Baltimore Arena - offered the promise of the next significant step in their ascent. Towson hadn't won a CAA tournament game in four years until it wore down foul-riddled James Madison and prevailed, 80-71, behind 18 points by two-time CAA Player of the Year Jerrelle Benimon and four 3-pointers and 21 points by sophomore guard Four McGlynn.

Pat Skerry didn't sound surprised that sophomore guard Four McGlynn had his best game in a Towson uniform in Saturday night's Colonial Athletic Association tournament quarterfinal victory over James Madison. As the Tigers coach reminded the media, the Vermont transfer has won a conference tournament before and played two games in the NCAA tournament. McGlynn also had the advantage of having been in Baltimore Arena previously, though for a far different reason than basketball.

Towson has made dramatic strides in the past year-plus, but it isn't up to the level of an elite team yet. The Tigers found that out the hard way Friday night at Phog Allen Fieldhouse as No. 2 Kansas roared out to a 33-point halftime lead on their way to an 88-58 nonconference win. Jayhawks freshman guard Andrew Wiggins shot 6-for-7 in the first half, nearly outscoring Towson by himself. He had 14 of his team-high 16 points during the opening 20 minutes as the Jayhawks established a 49-16 halftime margin.

Towson (6-8, 1-0), which has never had a winning CAA record since joining the league in 2001, was aided by Mike Burwell's 13 points.

Pat Skerry has spent the past 30 minutes pacing the perimeter of the court, tossing out gentle pointers in his New England-inflected patter. One of his Towson Tigers fires an ill-conceived pass that ends up rattling among the seats at SECU Arena. The third-year coach abruptly morphs into a different animal. "Instead of acting like little kids, let's execute 'Hook' correctly," he bellows, referring to one of his team's plays. "Guard!" he barks after a subsequent defensive lapse.
