Maryland sophomore forward Jalen Smith’s list of all-american accolades continued to grow this week as he was named a Third Team All-American by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association Monday and a Third Team All-American by the National Association of Basketball Coaches Tuesday.
Smith, a Mount Saint Joseph graduate and Baltimore native, has earned Third Team All-America honors from the AP, NABC, USBWA, CBS Sports, Sports Illustrated and Sporting News.
Last Friday, Smith was the first Terp named to an AP first, second or tird team since Greivis Vasquez earned AP second team in 2010. Melo Trimble twice earned AP honorable mention (2016, 2017).
Smith is also a top-five finalist for the Karl Malone Power Forward of the Year Award and a top-10 semifinalist for the Citizen Naismith Player of the Year Award, while having already earned First Team All-Big Ten and All-Defensive Big Ten honors.
He had 21 double doubles on the season (third nationally), including 13 in his final 14 games. It was the fourth-most in Maryland single-season history.
Smith ranked second in the Big Ten in rebounds (10.5/g) and blocked shot (2.4/g), in addition to ranking fourth in field-goal percentage (.538).
NFL: The Ravens have re-signed free-agent wide receiver Chris Moore to a one-year deal, the team announced Tuesday night.
Moore finished with just three catches for 21 yards last season, both career lows. He played 159 snaps on offense, the fewest among regular contributors at wide receiver. Over 58 games and four seasons with the Ravens, Moore has 47 receptions on 84 targets for 511 yards and four touchdowns.
But the former fourth-round pick is a valued contributor on special teams, where he ranked third in snaps in 2018 and fourth last year. He could also be in the mix at kickoff returner, a role he previously held.
With his extension, Moore is the eighth pending free agent or unrestricted free agent to re-sign with the Ravens this offseason.
Men’s college basketball: Towson senior guard Brian Fobbs was selected to the National Association of Basketball Coaches All-District 10 Second Team. This is the second consecutive year that Fobbs was named to the NABC All-District 10 Second Team.

He started all 32 games and led Towson in scoring (16.3 points per game), which was ninth in the conference and 158th nationally. An excellent foul shooter, finished sixth in the conference and 83rd nationally in free throw percentage (83.9). Fobbs scored in double figures in 28 games this season.
