No matter if you support Kentucky or hate them with every ounce of your being, every Terp should be a Kentucky fan this evening. Today could go down as one of the defining moments in MD's basketball future. If Kentucky wins tonight there are rumors circling that he could accept an NBA head coaching position (Knicks & Wizards have been discussed). I personally love to watch Coach Cal's teams because they are uptempo and usually have disgusting lead guards. Its hard not to like Rose, Evans, and Wall. If Kentucky wins and Cal leaves, MD becomes the frontrunner for the Harrison twins. While it would be nice to beat out Kentucky for the twins, I will take the win however I can get it.
In other news, Charles Mitchell tweeted that he will be participating in the Capital Classic All-Star game. The rosters dont appear to be finalized yet. The tweet below says that 5 terp recruits will participate. Im thinking that means a recruit "target" at one point in time, not necessarily a future Terp. I wouldnt be suprised if Layman and Allen play in the game as well. Maybe even Cassell. The more Terps who participate the better. We need as much all-star exposure as possible. Some might think that these games dont mean anything, but I would disagree. Its all about Brand Recognition. These games are heavily watched and the more times MD is mentioned the better off for future recruiting.
Mar 29, 2012 - The 39th Annual Capital Classic will officially be held on April 21 at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, VA. This was tweeted by CSNWashington.com college basketball writer Ben Standig. And while the full rosters are still to be determined, we do know some of the players that will be playing in the game.

Cleare was on TV last night for the North, South, East, West all star games. The kid is huge. Some of the other centers were much more impressive but you cant dispute his size. A few months working out with college coaches should do wonders for him. I dont think he starts from day one, but I think he will receive a solid 15 minutes at the beginning of the year and maybe 20 by the end. He was much more athletic than I imagined. He made a few nice passes and he can jump.
Anyone have any other info to share?
