Mychal Parker came right off the bus, signed off autographs and then proceeded to put his signature on the game as he scored a game-high 33 points to lead The Miller School to a 106-71 victory over Stevens Prep Academy in the opening showcase game of the 30th annual Washington Daily News/PotashCorp Aurora Holiday Tournament.

In Saturday's championship game, however, the Millers fell to South Central, 62-49.

Parker netted a team-high 18 points and helped his team hold a 30-22 advantage at halftime. However, the Falcons, led by the trio of Carlton, Donta Harper (15 points) and Anthony Hilliard smothered the Mavericks with a suffocating press to out-score The Miller School 40-19 in the second half.Terrence Ross finished with a game-high 24 points in Montrose Christian's 71-49 win over 'Iolani in Hawaii.

Ross, a 6-foot-6 senior guard who has made a commitment to play at the University of Maryland next season, drained three consecutive 3-pointers against 'Iolani's 2-3 zone in the first seven minutes last night to help the Mustangs jump out to a 17-3 lead.

• NJ.com named Maryland power forward commitment Ashton Pankey one of the top 50 players in New Jersey.

Ashton Pankey, St. Anthony: The talented 6-8 senior forward, bound for Maryland, will likely be out of the lineup for at least a month due to a stress fracture in his left leg. He averaged just 7.7 points in 15 games last season, but realized his greatest value as a rebounding and defensive force.

The injury to Pankey and the academic ineligibility of Oregon State recruit Devon Collier will force St. Anthony into some early-season adjustments, according to the Hudson (N.J.) Reporter.

"By the time they're ready to come back, they just won't be able to contribute like we hoped them to," [St. Anthony coach Bob] Hurley said. "They'll have to work their way back into the swing of things, and that's not going to be easy after we've played so many games."
