Tim McDonald (photo) is in his fourth year as Cabrini men's basketball head coach in 2017-18. After four years as an assistant coach on the Cabrini sideline, McDonald became the sixth head coach in the history of the Cabrini men’s basketball team.
Under McDonald's leadership, the 2016-17 Cavaliers made their 13th appearance in the NCAA Tournament, before ending the season 19-8, including 15-3 in the CSAC.
McDonald led the Cavaliers to a 16-11 record in 2015-16, before suffering a tight loss in the semifinal round of the CSAC Tournament. The Blue and White was led by sophomore Tyheim Monroe, who amassed 27 double-doubles in as many games, while also leading
the nation in total rebounds and offensive rebounds.
In his first year as head coach, McDonald led the Cavaliers to their seventh consecutive appearance in the Colonial States Athletic Conference championship game. Despite an overtime loss, the Blue and White posted a 17-10 mark, including 13-5 in league play.
McDonald's club was led by senior Aaron Walton-Moss, who was named National Player of the Year by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) for the second consecutive season. Walton-Moss, the three-time Colonial States Athletic Conference Player of the Year, ranked in the top 25 in nine NCAA statistical categories, including an astounding nine triple doubles and 9.58 defensive rebounds per game.
McDonald took over a program with which he was very familiar. During his four years as an assistant coach, the Cavaliers reached unprecedented heights, including four consecutive Colonial States Athletic Conference championships, three trips to the NCAA Sweet 16 and the College’s first appearance in an NCAA Championship game. During that period, the Blue and White amassed a record of 106-16, including 67-5 in the CSAC.
During McDonald’s time on the Cavaliers’ sideline, his responsibilities have included all aspects of recruiting, scouting
opponents, in-season and off-season training and player development, budget management and ensuring that student- athletes adhere to Cabrini and NCAA policies.
Prior to coming to Cabrini, McDonald spent five years coaching at Gateway Regional High School in Woodbury Heights, N.J., where he led the Gators to their second best record in program history and hosted the program’s first state tournament game in 2010.
McDonald graduated from Ursinus College in 2003 with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise & Sport Science before earning a teaching certificate in Health and Physical Education from Rowan University in 2010. McDonald also completed his master’s degree in Sports Management from Drexel University in 2013.
