    Sekou Sylla, the National Division 2 Player of the Year, has committed to Towson and coach Pat Skerry.

    The 6-foot-6, 215-pound wing from Brooklyn averaged 22.6 points on 58.4 percent shooting to go along with 10. 5 rebounds per game and was the D2CCA National Player of the Year.

    “I picked them because they were the regular season champs last season and we really have a real chance to go dancing next year,” he said.

    He also considered High Point, UMBC, Wright State, Bryant and St. Bonaventure.

    Towson also added Seton Hall transfer and Maryland native Ryan Conway.

    Conway and Sylla will be big additions to a team returning four starters and three all-Colonial Athletic Association first- and second-team players.
