Czyz, Mosley Shine; U-Md. Rumors Abound
Some thoughts from the Capital Classic. Olek Czyz is tough. He acknowledges needing to work on his jumper and game away from the basket, but he left everyone impressed with his tenacity and willingness to work around the basket. Most guys 6-7 prefer to play on the outside. A late addition to the game, George Mason recruit Andre Cornelius was terrific for the U.S. team. Obvious to see how Sean Mosley can help Maryland if he qualifies. He was smooth with the ball, never forcing things and could shoot the three and get to the basket. Afterward, U.S. team coach Dan Hurley talked about how Mosley carried himself like a star. Georgetown recruit Henry Sims also played well, as did Florida State recruit Deividas Dulkys, who showed good three-point range.
There was discussion afterward about whether the outcome was because of a significant talent gap (my theory) or because the locals were only interested in trying to show off their individual skills.
Also, plenty of buzz about what Maryland's roster might look like. Mosley said he took the ACT on Saturday and is scheduled to take the SAT again in May. There also is plenty of speculation that former Suitland guard Bobby Maze, now attending Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College, won't end up in College Park, perhaps replaced by another junior college player, Tyree Evans of Richmond. And while Greivis Vasquez and the rest of Maryland's players took in a few minutes of the game before heading to the practice court to scrimmage, there was rampant speculation that Vasquez will declare for the NBA draft.
