"Seton Hall, Maryland, Creighton, Georgia Tech, Arizona State, these are the schools," he said.• The stock of Huntington (W.Va.) Prep senior center Gorgui Dieng continues to rise.

At the Double Pump spring tournament in Denver, Rivals.com's Brian Snow said Dieng showed "an excellent feel for the game both offensively and defensively."

Gorgui Dieng listed Louisville, Marquette, Memphis, Michigan, South Florida, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Marshall, Seton Hall, Virginia Tech, Virginia, and Maryland as schools of interest.

• UM junior point guard target Sterling Gibbs told the Louisville Courier-Journal that he plans to visit Indiana.

"I really want to take a look at Indiana."

Gibbs, who averaged 23 points and seven assists as a junior, also is looking at Florida, Maryland, Wake Forest, Rutgers, Seton Hall and Pittsburgh.

• Maryland junior center target Desmond Hubert was one of FlagrantFouls.com's Day 2 standouts at the Pitt Jam Fest.

Desmond started his game vs. YAACE silver by blocking 4 shots in 6 possessions. He has great timing and blocked shots with both hands. Desmond is long, athletic, and played really aggressive today. While he needs to develop his back to the basket game, he's a wiry kid with a boat load of upside.

• Terps women's basketball commitment Whitney Bays has been invited to try out for the U.S. 18-and-under team.

Bays, who is headed to the University of Maryland in the fall, confirmed the invitation by Team USA and said that she will likely be cleared to play after tearing her anterior cruciate ligament during AAU last July.
