Weekly Maryland recruiting roundup

A broken bone in his left hand sidelined Seth Allen in December, and it's apparently looking increasingly likely that the Maryland-bound combo guard's high school career is over. The Washington Post's Josh Barr checked in with the three-star prospect for an update on his recovery.

Allen said he runs six miles nightly on a treadmill at home and that he has been lifting weights with his legs, particularly squats, to try to improve his core strength.

* The Washington Post's Eric Prisbell joined B.J. Koubaroulis for a five-minute video on an upcoming piece he wrote on Terps center signee Shaquille Cleare. Check out the video -- which includes game highlights of Cleare -- below.

The Post is also doing a live-stream of DeMatha (featuring Terps target BeeJay Anya) against Paul VI (featuring UM target Stanford Robinson). Click here to check it out.

* Maryland-bound forward Jake Layman's King Philip squad suffered a 73-69 loss to Stoughton.

 King Philip's Jake Layman scored a game-high 30 points, adding 13 rebounds and four blocks.

* The Charlotte Observer this week profiled Terps center target Kennedy Meeks.

"The schools recruiting me most right now are (North) Carolina, Georgetown and Louisville and Florida," Meeks said. "Right now, I'm wide open. As long as I'm playing, I'm cool with it."

* Maryland women's forward signee Tierney Pfirman scored her 2,000th career point Tuesday night.

"It's all surreal right now," Pfirman said. "Going Division I, getting the 2,000 points... It's high school, I'm still a kid and hopefully in college I'll look back and be like, 'Wow that was a good high school career there.'"

* Terps guard signee Chloe Pavlech powered Sycamore (Ohio) to an upset win Wednesday.

They had good reason. Pavlech scored 20 points, including four free throws in the final 27 seconds, as Sycamore snapped Princeton’s 32-game Greater Miami Conference winning streak, according to the GMC website, with a 55-52 win Wednesday night at Princeton.

* UM guard commitment Lexie Brown had a big game for North Gwinnett (Ga.) this week.

Lexie Brown of North Gwinnett exploded for 25 points at the Kay Yow Girls Night Out Tournament at Starr's Mill in a 41-37 win over Dutch Fork (S.C.).

* Terps center signee Malina Howard played well in Twinsburg (Ohio) High's 51-46 loss to DuPont Manual of Louisville, Ky.

Howard was the only Tiger who hit double figures. The 6-foot-4 senior muscled for 22 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and blocked four shots.
