Report: Terps, Hoyas to play in November

A Washington television station is reporting that Maryland will meet Georgetown in the inaugural Gavitt Games early next season. WUSA-TV (Channel 9) reported that a date and location have not been announced, but a source familiar with the situation said the Terps have been promised a home game in the new series and that the game will be played Nov. 17, 18, 19 or 20. It it happens, it will mark the first time the two schools have been scheduled to play during the regular season since 1993, when Joe Smith led the unranked Terps to an 84-83 overtime upset of the No. 15 Hoyas at USAir Arena. The teams met again in the NCAA tournament in 2001, with the 11th-ranked Terps beating the 21st-ranked Hoyas, 76-66, in the Sweet 16. In 2008, Maryland lost to No. 21 Georgetown, 75-48, in a third-place consolation game at the Old Spice Classic in Orlando, Fla. In 2012, Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson said the Terps would not schedule the Hoyas in another sport until the men's basketball teams played again. This year's game will likely be played Nov. 17 or 18 because the Hoyas are scheduled to play at the 2K Classic in New York Nov. 20 and Nov. 22. The Gavitt Games, named in honor of longtime Big East commissioner Dave Gavitt, are a first-year event between eight schools from the Big Ten and eight from the Big East. Under the current format, teams will play a home-and-home series in consecutive years, meaning the Terps will play at the Verizon Center in 2016. A Maryland athletic department spokesman could not confirm the WUSA-TV report.

Navy pitcher Harris called up by Cardinals

During his stint in the Persian Gulf on a Navy aircraft carrier, Mitch Harris kept his pitching arm — and his hopes of eventually making it to the majors — in shape by tossing a baseball on the flight deck. "We actually had a cook ... who grew up playing baseball his whole life," Harris recalled. "He was about the only person I truly trusted to throw with, because I was scared I'd hurt anybody else." Harris, a 2008 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, told this story Tuesday during a news conference at Nationals Park, where the 29-year-old relief pitcher joined the St. Louis Cardinals after being called up from the minors. The Hall of Fame said it believes the only Naval Academy graduate to appear in a major league game was pitcher Nemo Gaines, who made four relief appearances in 1921 with the Washington Senators. Counting the minor leagues, just nine Annapolis graduates have played professional baseball, the Hall said.
