Towson men’s basketball rolls past UMBC, 89-73, behind Christian May’s hot shooting, rebounding domination – Baltimore Sun

Sophomore shooting guard Christian May showcased his potential in the last two games, scoring a career-high 24 points and hitting six 3-pointers, leading Towson University’s basketball team to an 89-73 victory over UMBC. The Tigers’ resurgence was further fueled by junior small forward Tomiwa Sulaiman’s season-high 16 points and five rebounds, as well as redshirt freshman point guard Dylan Williamson’s 11 points, eight assists, and four steals. Despite the absence of key players, Towson secured its second consecutive win.

May, who scored a career-best 27 points in a previous match, admitted feeling pressure at the start of the season but has found his rhythm lately. His exceptional performance, just two 3-pointers shy of the program’s single-game record, and Sulaiman’s impactful contribution contributed to Towson’s dominant display against UMBC.

The Tigers’ prowess in offensive rebounds proved to be a crucial factor in their victory, as they outrebounded UMBC 42-21 and capitalized on second-chance points. Towson’s ability to control the glass has been a focal point of their strategy, contributing to their impressive 50% shooting accuracy and a 46-32 advantage in the paint against UMBC.

Looking ahead, Towson’s upcoming game against Bryant presents an opportunity for redshirt junior shooting guard Nendah Tarke to make his season debut, adding further anticipation to their future matches.

This recent win reinforces Towson’s resurgence, reflecting their potential to be a formidable force in college basketball. With key players finding their form and a solid foundation for success, Towson is poised for a promising season.
