After Houston Rockets stars James Harden and Chris Paul fouled out in Thursday’s 111-106 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, an NBA official with a long, controversial history was in their crosshairs. That official: Scott Foster, a Maryland native and University of Maryland graduate.
One day out, it seems like Maryland guard Kevin Huerter will end up as a mid-to-late first-round pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. Forward Justin Jackson, who struggled last season due to injury, is likely to be a second round pick.
The Washington Wizards officially announced the hiring of Scott Brooks as the franchise's 24th head coach Tuesday. The sides agreed to a five-year deal worth $35 million, according to people with knowledge of the situation
Los Angeles Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak didn¿t cause a stir when he took his seat at the back of press row an hour before tip-off Tuesday night at Xfinity Center. It was Kupchak¿s first trip back to the Maryland campus since his days as a Washington Bullet playing summer pickup games at Cole Field House. Yet Kupchak¿s presence for No. 7 Maryland¿s matchup against Northwestern was an indication of his interest in at least one of the game¿s participants. Considering how little Maryland freshman Diamond Stone was on the floor for Maryland¿s 62-56 overtime win -- a total of 15 minutes -- Kupchak might have to come back.
What the NFL has done in moving the Rams to Los Angeles ¿ whether it was done to Baltimore or Cleveland or St. Louis, and whether or not the ultimate outcome for each locality has been good or bad ¿ is reprehensible.
Ending a frantic few days of courtship ¿ and perhaps cementing the Spurs as the preseason favorites to win yet another NBA title ¿ Aldridge announced Saturday that he will sign with San Antonio and align with Tim Duncan and Kawhi Leonard to form what would figure to be among the league's most-formidable frontcourts.
Minnesota selected Kentucky's Karl-Anthony Towns with the first pick in the NBA draft on Thursday night, the first of three straight freshmen chosen before New York chose Latvian forward Kristaps Porzingis, triggering loud, long boos from their fans inside Barclays Center.
The giant spark plug in Johnny Egan's attic is nearly as big as he is. A gift from Bullets fans, the 4-foot trophy depicts the spunky guard's role on Baltimore's NBA team one-half century ago. Then, he'd come off the bench, time after time, to ignite the offense or fire up the defense.
The Wizards returned to Baltimore on Monday night to play against the New Orleans Pelicans at the newly renamed Royal Farms Arena, and it seemed like the memories came flooding back more than the fans came storming into the antiquated venue.
In its prime, Maryland-Duke was a series that emanated heat. While Duke fans professed indifference, the rivalry didn't fade away quietly at Maryland, not even after the school announced it would join the financially lucrative Big Ten beginning this July.
Half a century ago, the Baltimore Bullets came into the world without much fuss. There was no parade for the city's new National Basketball Association team. The opening night crowd fell far short of a sellout. And the Bullets bowed meekly to the world champion Boston Celtics, as they would the first nine times they played them.
