Goucher falls in exhibition to Division I Towson

TOWSON, MD. - The Goucher College(2-5) Men's Basketball traveled across town tonight to face Division I Towson University(4-3) in an exhibition game.  The Tigers controlled the lead from the opening tip, but the Gophers cut the lead to 4 (20-16) with 6:44 remaining in the first half.  Towson then went on a 26-6 run to take control of the game and lead Goucher 46-22 at the half.  The Tigers shot 57% from the floor and 46% from the three point line for the game. 

Senior Jesse Mondry (Medford, OR) led the Gophers with 16 points.

The Tigers were led by Dennis Tunstall with 16 points and 11 rebounds.                             

How It Happened:

  • Towson out shot Goucher from the field by a considerable margin,  57% to 27%.
  • The Tigers made 7 three point shots and the Gophers made 6 , but the Tigers outscored the Gophers 48 – 8 in the paint
  • Towson converted Goucher's 21 turnovers into 30 points.

Coach's Thoughts:

  • "Towson took advantage of their size and strength by dominating us in the paint and on the boards, but they also shot well from the 3 point line.  The combination of those two factors made it difficult for us tonight"  
  • "I thought we played well at times and it definitely was a good learning experience and will help us prepare for conference play"

Next Up:

  • The Gophers return to action on Saturday, December 3, as they open Landmark Conference play at home against Susquehanna University.   Goucher will tip-off at 4:00 pm.
