Players in Review: Darian Townes

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

The 6-10 forward from Arkansas was signed by Erie on Jan. 9. His season stat line: 31 games played, 4 starts, 6.6 points and 4.1 rebounds per game.

Townes gave the BayHawks some much needed size inside. They were a perimeter-based team all season long, so Townes’ ability to score and defend on the low block gave them a needed presence. His 1.19 blocks per game was good for second best on the BayHawks.

Townes played limited minutes with the BayHawks, and it would be interesting to see if he could maintain his production in an increased role. He’ll likely look to play elsewhere in search of those increased minutes.
