Three For Tuesday
Three for Tuesday
1. One of the nation's top recruits, O.J. Mayo might not be seeing the floor anytime soon. Huntington (W.Va.) High, which earlier this season beat No. 4 DeMatha, plays Artesia of Lakewood, Calif., tonight at Duke's Cameron Indoor Stadium, but it is unlikely the USC-bound (for a pit stop before being NBA-bound) Mayo will play.
Mayo was ejected from Huntington's most recent game, which carries an automatic two-game suspension according to West Virginia high school rules. He is considering a legal appeal and could try to get a temporary restraining order, which five teammates ejected from the game are doing. The dunk that starts all the fuss is about 2 Â½ minutes into the clip below - check it out, pretty darn impressive. Here's a link to what Huntington fans think was a soccer-style flop. I'm curious what all of the referees out there think about this one.
2. Locally, here's a look at tonight's best places to be: No. 12 Bishop McNamara at No. 10 Gonzaga, 7:30; No. 14 Laurel at Wise, 7:15; No. 11 Springbrook at Magruder, 7; St. Mary's Ryken at No. 3 DeMatha. All of these games feature good college prospects, but if I were picking one to go to, I think it would be Ryken-DeMatha. DeMatha guard Austin Freeman, a Georgetown recruit, has posted back-to-back 31-point outings. And it's a good chance for Ryken's John Flowers, a West Virginia recruit, to show what he can do against top (and tall) opposition.
3. Virginia football continues its recent D.C.-area recruiting run, getting a commitment from Oakton WR-DB Jared Green this past weekend. Green, better known as the son of former Redskins CB Darrell Green, had 15 catches for 220 yards and four touchdowns this past season.
