To Stony Brook fans, Tommy Brenton is an irreplaceable forward almost maniacally obsessed with winning. To supporters of other America East schools, Brenton's like an 80's-era pro wrestling heel, relishing their taunting signage and thriving on their verbal barbs. And to at least one former assistant coach in the conference, Brenton is simply "a pain in the a--" to play against. “I think that's a great sign of respect if they hate playing against me, but [would] love having me on their team,” said Brenton, the reigning America East Defensive Player of the Year.

Welcome back to Morning Shootaround, a regular feature this season the day after Maryland basketball games. While we can't bring you into the Terps' locker room after games -- reporters haven't been allowed in there since the last couple of years under Gary Williams -- we will recap what was said in the news conference afterward by Maryland coach Mark Turgeon and his players. We will give some of our own insight into what transpired on the court during the previous night's game and what the Terps will be working on at practice looking ahead to their next game.

The only previous experience Adrian Coxson had with a Football Championship Subdivision team was when Maryland came away with a 28-3 win over Towson last fall. Before that, the Terps wide receiver had never given any FCS school much thought, and he certainly never expected to play at that level.  But after a redshirt freshman season in which he appeared in just nine games, Coxson decided to transfer from College Park. The former four-star wide-out, who started his college career at Florida, was pursued by FBS schools Utah and Toledo, which offered him a scholarship.

The last thing a struggling passing offense needs is a matchup against a defense with a relentless pass rush. That's the scenario awaiting Towson (2-3 overall and 0-1 in the Colonial Athletic Association) when the Tigers play league rival Stony Brook at Johnny Unitas Stadium on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. Towson, which ranks 112th out of 121 Football Championship Subdivision teams in passing at 115.6 yards per game, meets a Seawolves defense that ranks sixth in the country in sacks with 17. But as coach Rob Ambrose pointed out, sacks aren't the only department in which Stony Brook fares well.

Colleges Davis' late 3 lifts Morgan women past Stony Brook Senior Moneshia Davis hit what proved to be the game-winning 3-pointer from the left corner with 10.1 seconds remaining Sunday to help the Morgan State women's basketball team escape with a 66-63 nonconference overtime win over visiting Stony Brook. The victory was the Bears' first over the Seawolves in four meetings and avenged last season's 65-48 loss. Davis' basket helped the Bears (2-2) improve to 2-0 at home and prevented what would have been a disappointing loss for Morgan State, which led by as much as 15 points and never trailed in regulation.

Johns Hopkins (11-3) is 11-2 all-time in first-round games and is 8-1 in the first round under coach Dave Pietramala. Here are a few factors that could play a role in the outcome at Homewood Field in Baltimore Sunday afternoon.

Derrick Joseph injured his shoulder in the second quarter of Towson's 27-24 loss to Maine on Saturday night, and he did not return to the game. But the senior return specialist could return in time for Saturday's 3:30 p.m. game at Johnny Unitas Stadium against Colonial Athletic Association opponent Stony Brook. Coach Rob Ambrose said Joseph, who ranks 22nd among all Football Championship Subdivision kick returners with a 25.6-yard average and has returned a school-record four kickoffs for touchdowns, suffered “a small strain” that does not require surgery.

The Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University opens its school year this week with about 600 students, 150 faculty members and a new dean. Fred Bronstein, who started on the job in June after six years as president of the St. Louis Symphony, is the 16th person to take the helm since the music conservatory was founded in 1857. His title is different, though. The designation was changed to "dean" from "director," established before the conservatory became affiliated with JHU in 1977, to make Peabody consistent with the university's other academic divisions.

After wasting an 11-8 advantage in the final nine minutes of the fourth quarter, UMBC needed a critical stick save by redshirt freshman goalkeeper Connor Gordon to kill a six-on-four, man-down opportunity in overtime. The Retrievers then got a goal from sophomore midfielder Pat Young with 9.6 seconds left in the extra session to edge visiting Stony Brook, 12-11, at UMBC Stadium in Catonsville on Friday night. The win lifted the Retrievers to 5-4 overall and 1-0 in the America East Conference, which is pivotal if the program hopes to qualify for the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2009.

UMBC's loss to No. 13 Albany may not have been a surprise, but the team's setback to Binghamton was. In that game, the Retrievers (7-6 overall and 3-2 in the America East) lost a 6-4 lead at halftime and were outscored 9-1 in the second half en route to a 13-7 loss. So who do they get in an America East tournament semifinal on Thursday at Stony Brook? Those same Bearcats (7-7, 4-1). UMBC coach Don Zimmerman acknowledged that the team was eager for a rematch with Binghamton, but he warned against revenge taking over preparation.
