‘I’m ready for it’ – Baltimore Sun

The long wait is finally over for Towson men’s basketball player Nendah Tarke, as his application for a waiver to play this season has been approved by the NCAA. The news was delivered by head coach Pat Skerry and assistant coach John Auslander after a four-month wait, and Tarke was initially shocked but ultimately relieved and excited.

Tarke, a transfer from Coppin State, is set to make his debut in a Tigers uniform this Saturday in a game against Bryant. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound shooting guard missed the first 10 games of the season while the NCAA reviewed the waiver application. The holdup was due to his transfer from Nicholls State, as NCAA transfer rules require a player to sit out one season if they transfer to two programs in the same offseason.

Despite the uncertainty, Tarke stayed positive and focused, saying that he loves the sport and is committed to giving his all to the program, whether or not he is playing. He has the potential to be an immediate contributor to the team, having compiled impressive stats during his time at Coppin State.

Head coach Pat Skerry is looking forward to incorporating Tarke into the team and is thankful for the opportunity to have him play in at least a couple of nonconference games to blend the team together. A victory on Saturday would give the Tigers their first three-game winning streak of the season, and Tarke is eager to make an impact and help the team win.

The game against Bryant will take place at UBS Arena in Elmont, N.Y. and will be streamed on flosports.tv.

Historically, waiver approvals such as Tarke’s have been significant turning points for teams, providing a needed boost and new energy. The news of his approval is not only a relief for the team but also a source of excitement for fans and supporters as they anticipate his contribution to the team’s success in the upcoming games.
