Nation's Top Players/Teams Coming to D.C. Area?

That's what I'm hearing. Talk has been circulating for a few weeks that an end-of-season high school basketball championship will be staged this year, and it appears likely now that the event is going to happen.

Details are hard to find -- event organizers wouldn't comment on their plans.

However, it appears it will be an eight-team tournament. I know there was speculation the event would be held at AU's Bender Arena or GW's Smith Center, but there also seems a decent possibility that a smaller venue is used.

As for the teams, it likely would be limited to private school teams, as state high school associations generally have rules limiting the playing season that would prohibit their members' participation.

And don't be surprised if ESPN is brought into the mix to televise the tournament on one of its channels.

Not one player - will ever consider going to Maryland.

Maryland will finish with a 15-16 overall record and 4-12 in the ACC

No NCAA or NIT bids for the Terps.

Gary Williams is a good golfer.
