"It's the most successful of the three [programs], playing high-major basketball in a mid-major conference," Coverdale said. "They've been in the Top 25, Top 15 in the country before.

It's the kind of winning tradition he wants to be around."A Baltimore Sun second-team All-Metro selection in 2009, Philmore flourished in his second season with the Tigers, averaging better than 15 points and seven rebounds. After briefly considering sticking around for the beginning of the Pat Skerry era at Towson, Philmore announced his intention to transfer last month. He quickly became a highly sought recruit, with Coverdale fielding inquiries from a variety of high- and mid-major programs.
