Local ties: Michigan’s maybe the more familiar program to local basketball fans, having played (and swept) Maryland in Big Ten Conference play this season, but it’s Villanova that has two Baltimore-area players. Wildcats starting guard Phil Booth (Mount Saint Joseph), an unlikely hero in the NCAA final two years ago, has returned from myriad injuries to give the team double-digit scoring and veteran leadership. He’s teammates with practice player turned walk-on Denny Grace (Calvert Hall), who has appeared briefly in 15 games this season and scored three points.
