Something's been missing from VMI basketball in recent years, and it's not the strategically-placed letters "O" and "T." It's been "W"'s - take last season, for example, when they win three out of 16 conference games. But there's a new sheriff in town (former Virginia policeman Duggar Baucom), and he's got his troops on a five-game win streak. Okay, it's been mostly against the D2 teams that usually give them the bulk of their victories, but it's a start.
Last night, Virginia Military marched on Baltimore and won the Battle of Towson, overshadowing the Tiger debut of a key figure from the LaSalle rape case, Gary Neal
(28 points, 10-for-18). VMI team leader Reggie Williams
poured in an impressive 27, but we're giving MMBOD honors to the 6'7" junior whose dubbity (16 and 11) put them over the top. Fourteen of Murrer's points kame in the klosing half, as the Keydets kame back from 17 down to kapture a krackling kontest. OK, so we're also missing the letter "C."
