Towson Second Half

2:55 p.m. - The second half couldn't be as bad as the first, right? The rebounding wasn't that bad for the Flyers, but they took 11 fucking threes. They fall in love with those long jumpers and they simply don't make enough of them to justify it.

3:01 p.m. - UD is the first team out of the lockerroom. I assume Brian Gregory may have voiced his displeasure during the break.

3:03 p.m. - The Flyers start the half by goaltending a Towson shot. Goodie. 44-35, after a UD basket.

3:05 p.m. - Towson's zone is just killing them. 47-35.

3:06 p.m. - Marcus Johnson wakes from his slumber and makes a three.

3:07 p.m. - Chris Wright is 6 of 7 from the foul line. He's the only one who apparently realizes this game counts. Towson leads 49-39.

3:09 p.m. - 49-41 after a London Warren running layup. But Towson answers with a three, naturally.

3:10 p.m. - Media timeout at 15:37. 52-41 Towson. My wife and I made the trip to Minneapolis last March to watch the Flyers in the NCAA Tournament. I'm thinking we'll be able to save that money this March.

3:12 p.m. - Desperation has set in. Fabrizius has made a shot inside the arc. 54-43.

3:13 p.m. - Remember when UD had a great defense? That was awesome.

3:16 p.m. - A layup and a foul for Towson. RaShawn Polk misses the FT, but it's 56-43.

3:18 p.m. - Towson can't miss from beyond the arc. Timeout UD. 59-43.

3:20 p.m. - Towson's 2-3 zone is stifling UD offensively and the Flyer defense is still just awful. I have no idea what they're problem is. Did they read their press clippings this season? Do they miss Charles Little that much? Were they just that lucky last year? Perhaps it's all three...

3:21 p.m. - Stop me if you've heard this before, but Towson just made another three. It's a 17-point game.

3:22 p.m. - Media timeout 11:14. 62-45 Towson.

3:23 p.m. - Who should feel worse today? UD or Oklahoma State's football team?

3:26 p.m. - I made the mistake of looking over at the UD Pride forums. The Blackburn boys are right about those people. There's a thread about how there's a curse on the alternate unis. I love talking about unis and what I like and don't like, but the players in them are what matters. When they play like this, it doesn't matter what they're wearing they'll lose.

3:28 p.m. - 64-50 Towson after a Fabrizius basket.

3:29 p.m. - 7:54 left. Still 64-50 with Towson heading to the line.

3:32 p.m. - UD is in the double bonus. They still have an outside chance if they make free throws, but who honestly expect that to happen? Wright does make both, however, to cut it to 64-52.

3:33 p.m. - Towson misses an open three...for the first time today. Marcus Johnson then makes a driving layup and was fouled. UD cuts the lead to 10 pending the FT. The FT is good. The deficit is nine, 64-55, with 7:31 left. Towson TO.

3:34 p.m. - UD on a 9-0 run after falling behind by 18.

3:35 p.m. - Towson makes a jumper to stop the bleeding but UD answers with a three to cut it to eight.

3:36 p.m. - Chris Johnson, my man crush, drains a three! Timeout Towson. 66-61. The crowd is finally back in it. 6:28 to go. Towson with 10 team fouls. UD with seven, FYI.

3:38 p.m. - Towson's Polk heads to the line shooting a one-and-one. Makes both. 68-61. 6:05 left.

3:39 p.m. - Chris Johnson misses a three, Towson using all of the shot clock, but turns it over out of bounds. 5:20. 68-61.

3:40 p.m. - Nice pass to Wright from Warren, but he couldn't hold on. Jump ball, UD keeps possession.

3:41 p.m. - Lucky foul for UD. Franklin runs into Warren trying to force a steal. 4:57 with London at the line. Misses the first. Makes the second. 68-62.

3:42 p.m. - A handcheck foul on Warren, his fourth. Morris for Towson heads to the line with 4:27 left. Makes first. Misses second. 69-62.

3:43 p.m. - Perry with an open three. 69-65. Then an offensive foul on Towson. Media timeout at 3:44. 69-65.

3:45 p.m. - It's not just the basketball team that's seemed off today. The pep band isn't having it's best day, either.

3:46 p.m. - Chris Johnson misses a three, Towson rebound. After a Towson miss, Wright dunks! 69-67.

3:47 p.m. - Towson turnover when Morris throws it away! UD can tie. 2:36 left.

3:48 p.m. - Paul Williams misses a jumper. Towson rebound. Then Towson throws it away again. 1:56.

3:49 p.m. - UD drains shot clock... Chris Johnson makes a three!!! UD 70-69. Towson misses a deep three! UD rebound and timeout! I love me some Chris Johnson. 54 seconds left.

3:50 p.m. - Per Larry Hansgen, UD has outscored Towson 24-5 in the last nine minutes.

3:51 p.m. - Paul Williams with an open three!!! UD 73-69. Good ball movement to find Williams alone! Timeout Towson!! 31.1 left.

3:52 p.m. - I'm going to hate this team so much this year.

3:53 p.m. - Sophomores have come through again today. Chris Johnson and Paul Williams with big threes.

3:54 p.m. - After a missed Towson three, Towson offensive rebound and another miss, UD grabs the rebound and will go to the line. Williams with the big rebound. Timeout again. Seven seconds left.

3:55 p.m. - Towson has not scored in four minutes.

3:56 p.m. - Williams makes one of two, but Wright grabs the final rebound! UD wins 74-69. Holy shit.

4:06 p.m. - Well, that was certainly something. My wife and I are heading to a wedding tonight. Good thing it's open bar.

I've been checking this site for weeks and nothing. No call, no we're on a break message, nothing. It was like the end of my first real relationship. But unlike with Sara (yeah, I'm tough for naming her extremely popular name!), you came back... and I'm wearing pants.

Good to have you back.

Had to leave a comment as the "1 comments" note is embarassing your English teacher.

Glad to see that you were able to get released on good behavior and that this site is back up.
