Junior Jerrelle Benimon, who has been among the nation’s leaders in rebounding all season, is currently just eight rebounds shy of setting the Towson single-season rebounding record among Division I players.

Benimon is one of just four Towson players all-time to grab 300 rebounds in a season. Pat McKinley did it four times from 1973-77, Brian Matthews accomplished the feat during the 1977-78 season and Robert Nwankwo  set the Tiger Division I mark with 323 rebounds last season.

McKinley owns the all-time Towson rebounding mark, regardless of divisions, with 381 boards during the 1976-77 season.

Benimon currently has 316 rebounds with three games remaining, just seven shy of tying Nwankwo's mark and eight shy of setting the new Towson Division I record.

The junior currently leads the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) and ranks fourth nationally by averaging 11.3 rebounds per game.

Benimon could set the mark when the Tigers host Drexel on Saturday afternoon at the Towson Center.
