Some might assume that Towson University men's basketball head coach Pat Skerry is in a position to relax and enjoy his team's 6-1 start after receiving some national recognition this week.
Not a chance.
He's too busy trying to navigate the Tigers' stretch of eight games in 19 days that includes the two longest road trips of the season and contests against two top local rivals just before final exams. And the schedule only gets more difficult after that.
So, how is Skerry going to guide his team through this physically and emotionally draining part of the season?
