Props to Ben B. for most of the links today.
This would have been a real nice pick up for the Terps. Oh well... - Ben G.
Stress fracture is slightly concerning, but he'll be a good grinder for Maryland.
Ashton Pankey, St. Anthony: The talented 6-8 senior forward, bound for Maryland, will likely be out of the lineup for at least a month due to a stress fracture in his left leg. He averaged just 7.7 points in 15 games last season, but realized his greatest value as a rebounding and defensive force.
Also in the list: Sterling Gibbs. Surprisingly not there: Desmond Hubert.
Can't argue with that.
2. Juan Dixon (9) At some point, great athletes are defined by their teams' results. During a decade of local mediocrity, Juan Dixon won a national championship. He was the most outstanding player of the Final Four, became Maryland's all-time leading scorer, was the player of the year in what was then the nation's best conference, was a first-team all-American, and won more games than anyone in Terps history. Sure, not every D.C. sports fan is a Maryland fan, and sure, Dixon's pro career has been spotty, but in my opinion, he left a larger mark on this region than any of the names listed above.
Maryland was involved for a short while. Looks like he ended up elsewhere.
My Take: Good for him. Hope he enjoys his new SUV.
Maryland stopped recruiting him long ago, but it still hurts. I liked him.
"No, no, I'm not including him," Williams said. "He hasn't played all year."
Busy recruiting weekend, basketball-wise.
