Cooley Signs With Niagara

Reader Tom passes along this item: B-CC All-Met guard Austin Cooley has signed with Niagara. Funny how things sometimes work. Niagara assistant Akbar Waheed was at the Maryland semifinals, ostensibly to check out Springbrook guard C.J. Garner.

G'Town Picking Up Big Transfer?

Is Julian Vaughn bound for Georgetown? That's what the rumor mill has going around. If so, it would be pretty unique to see an ACC-to-Big East transfer take place, and a serious upgrade in programs....

Expectations Too High for Big Frank?

I think so. I empathize with Frank Ben-Eze. He was bound for Harvard, which would have been a good fit. Then he couldn't qualify academically for admission. So he picked Davidson, possibly another good fit for a player whom I think everyone would agree is still quite raw. Then comes...

Must-Reads On Terps/Evans

Sports Illustrated takes a look at Maryland's gamble on juco guard Tyree Evans. He can score, but he also has quite a checkered past. Personally, I think the key to the marriage between coach and school is buried at the end of this long (and good) story: Williams must hope...
