Outlook: This high school all-star basketball game between the Capital All-Stars and the U.S. All-Stars will give Maryland fans a first glimpse of the Terrapins' two signees -- 6-foot-6 swingman Laron Profit of Caesar Rodney in Camden, Del., and 6-10, 270-pound center Obinna Ekezie of Worcester (Mass.) Academy, both of whom will play for the U.S. All-Stars. Most of the eyes should be on Ekezie, who could be playing a major role next season if All-American center Joe Smith decides to leave Maryland for the NBA. Two players Maryland is recruiting from Philadelphia -- 6-10 center Lari Ketner (Roman Catholic) and 6-foot guard Terrell Stokes (Simon Gratz) are also on the U.S. roster. Another recruit, 6-9 forward Antric Klaiber of Episcopal in Alexandria, Va., will be playing for the Capital All-Stars. Louis Bullock (Laurel Baptist), the state's top player and a Michigan signee, will lead the Capital team. Ron Mercer (Oak Hill Academy in Virginia), the country's No. 1 player, will lead the U.S. All-Stars. The U.S. team won last year's game, 91-81, and leads the series, 13-8.
