Monday Morning Point Guard

For anyone not yet convinced, Eleanor Roosevelt senior Darnell Dodson continues to show why he should be considered one of the area's top recruits this season. The 6-foot-6 forward scored 31 points and had 13 rebounds as the Raiders won the Maryland 4A South Region title on Saturday. I said before the postseason began that I thought Roosevelt was a most dangerous team, with plenty of momentum and an elite player.

Scouting in advance of Thursday's state semifinals, Magruder Coach Dan Harwood said he would have preferred to see C.H. Flowers beat Roosevelt, in part so he could avoid playing Dodson. If the Pittsburgh needed any extra motivation, it was another Montgomery County team that prevented the Raiders from winning last year's Maryland 4A title.

Harwood also said that his best player, forward Donald Robinson, is bound for Polk Community College in Winter Haven, Fla.

Also, don't be surprised if St. John's (Md.) forward Nikita Mescheriakov ends up at Georgetown. Loyola has been considered the likely destination for the younger brother of former GW standout Yegor Mescheriakov, but the Hoyas remain in the mix and there are indications the 6-foot-7 forward could wind up at Georgetown.

In girls' basketball, the Virginia Cavaliers have gone back to Prince William County to snag another recruit. ACC Freshman of the Year Monica Wright was from Forest Park.

St. John's (Md.) forward Nikita Mescheriakov was a man among boys at the recent Sleepy Thompson Invitational Tournament at St. Stephen's in Alexandria. He'll be a good one...

We're all thrilled for Dan Harwood and the Magruder team for their victory over Eleanor Roosevelt in the 4A Final yesterday. Dodson was a formidable opponent but Magruder was the overall better TEAM that showed confidence and poise throughout the contest even with no prior State playoff experience.
