The Maryland men's basketball program has stepped up its pursuit of one 2011 post target.
The University of Maryland has offered a scholarship to the German Martin Breunig who is currently playing at SJNMA in Wisconsin. Breunig came to St. Johns Northwestern during the last summer in order to prepare physically and educationally to play Division 1 College Basketball.
EuropeanProspects.com also reported that another German forward, Patrick Heckmann, is "getting some interest" from Maryland, Michigan and San Diego.• Greg Whittington powered Oakland Mills to a 57-53 win over Glenelg on Thursday to move the Scorpions to 20-0 on the season.
Things did indeed start opening up for Whittington as the game went on. He ended up finishing with a game-high 20 points to go along with 13 rebounds.
Behind 7 points and 14 rebounds from Desmond Hubert, New Egypt clinched at least a tie for the BCSL Freedom division on senior night.
McCrory, a former Seton Hall commit, chose Wagner over Hofstra and Northeastern in part because of his relationships with Hurley and assistant coach Luke Murray.
Leading North was Lexie Brown with 22 points, nine steals, eight assists and six rebounds. Ariel Johnson had 20 points, while Peyton Whitted added 11 points.
Alexis Newbolt scored 17 points and Chloe Pavlech added 14 points and six assists for the Aviators.
• The Washington Post caught up with several Terps football recruits for their reactions to Don Brown's departure for Connecticut.
"I wish, if he knew earlier, that he would have done it before signing day," [Lukas] Foreman said. "I was so mad when I found out, but then I called [Maryland assistant recruiting coordinator Ryan Steinberg] and he told me what happened and everything. [Brown] did it to be with his family. You can't be mad at that."
