Paint Branch's Moseley commits to Maryland

Paint Branch All-Met guard Brene Moseley, the Washington area's leading scorer last season, has orally committed to sign with Maryland.

The 5-foot-7, Moseley, who averaged 26.2 points per game, tore her right ACL last spring, but according to Paint Branch Athletic Director Heather Podosek, no schools backed off a Moseley once she got injured.

"She's running, she's jumping, she's been doing agility drills for two months now," said Podosek, who stepped down last spring after coaching the Panthers' girls' basketball program for 13 years. "The turnaround time [from the injury] is just amazing."

Some school showed reluctance because of her height, but Maryland has a history finding small guards who can thrive.

"Look at [former all-American] Kristi Toliver," Podosek said. "She's the same size. The ACC is known more for getting down the floor than banging underneath. Her ability to pass the ball is really what's going to separate her. It's not like Brene is going to have to carry the team in scoring."

Moseley isn't the only Panther to make her college decision. Her backcourt mate, Kenia Cole, orally committed to Hampton last weekend. Cole averaged 11.5 points per game last season as Paint Branch went 22-2 and reached the Maryland 4A West Region semifinals.
