Agents In the House; G'town Recruit Wins Award

Former Post intern Steve Yanda advances tonight's McDonald's All-American game with a story about how agents are still wooing high schoolers even though the NBA now makes them go to college for a year before turning pro. It only makes sense. Agents are recruiting players the same way college coaches do - by building relationships. College coaches want to get a foot in the door as soon as possible, so why wouldn't agents?

Shockingly, the prepsters (prepstars?) don't agree with the NBA rule banning preps to pros. One cites role model Allen Iverson's talk that the rule discriminates against those needing to make a living. Practice? Practice?

Meantime, Georgetown recruit Greg Monroe yesterday claimed the Morgan Wootten Award, given to the national high school player of the year. Connecticut recruit Elana Delle Donne of Wilmington, Del., won the girls' award.
