The 6-foot-2 guard averaged 12 points and shot 37 percent from 3-point range to go along with 91 percent free-throw shooting last season.
“We are tremendously excited to add Four to our Rhode Island basketball family,” said head coach Dan Hurley in the release. “This past season, we established ourselves as one of the premier defensive teams in college basketball. During this offseason, one of our main objectives is to add perimeter shooting and scoring to our lineup and we feel as though we have done that with Four.”
Joining a backcourt that returns sophomore E.C. Matthews and solid freshman J.T. Terrell, Rhode Island is coming off of a second round appearance in the Postseason NIT and 23-10 record.
Adding another shooter of McGlynn’s caliber off their bench is certainly an upgrade to the roster.
Rhode Island picked up a transfer in Towson guard Four McGlynn, a source confirmed to NBCSports.com. The 6-foot-2 junior was the leading scorer for the Tigers this past season, as he averaged 12 points per game to go along with 2.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists.
McGlynn also provides value as a shooter, as he shot 37 percent from 3-point range and 91 percent from the free-throw line last season.
Since McGlynn is graduating from Towson, he’ll be eligible to play immediately at Rhode Island and gives them another floor spacer who can also help close out games from the line.
Towson beats USC Upstate on Four McGlynn’s half-court shot (VIDEO)
Tournaments other than the NCAA tournament may not get much attention this season, but those lesser-known events can be a springboard into the next season for some teams. Towson, which finished second in the CAA this season, is looking to cap its season with a run in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament and the same goes for USC Upstate, which hosted the Tigers Wednesday night.
The game would be decided on a half-court shot, as Four McGlynn’s heave went through the hoop just as time expired to give Towson the 63-60 victory. McGlynn can be seen releasing the ball at the two-second mark in the video above.
