Sorry for the lack of posts over the weekend. I've been plenty busy, but post count should start picking back up with some regularity, provided actual news picks up too. Interestingly, Lance news has quieted down for awhile. No idea what it means, but it's all quiet on that front. It's kinda nice, actually.
- Of course, you should've read our (well, homertuck's) take on the Charm City Challenge, but if that wasn't enough for you, the Baltimore Sun has a writeup too. I'm very encouraged that Padge had his way with Vinson for some reason. It makes me feel much batter about him coming in next year. I still think Williams will start over him, simply because of size, but Padgett will get a lot of minutes.
- In case our one picture wasn't quite enough for you, Terp Center has a full gallery of photos.
- The Sun has a nice writeup on Jordan Williams, who wants to be known as "more than just a dunker". I don't know if he will; that seems like a difficult task to achieve after you've broken a backboard (not that I would know). James Padgett gets a few mentions as well. At the very end, Padgett was asked about Lance Stephenson possibly heading to Maryland. "He said he's really open about it." Well, that's enlightening.
- Gary will be on Washington Post Live today, 5 pm on CSN. I don't know if I'll be glad or not to have to be pulled away from the O's opening day game.
- USA Today talks about Darrius Heyward-Bey, whose stock is quickly rising for the draft (sorry, Ravens fans, he probably won't be there).
- Another link to Terp Center: it's a premi article, but the headline is certainly enticing: "Coach: Stoglin a Top-Five Guard in the Nation". I'm not sure about that, but he's had some great games. He went toe-to-toe with Abdul Gaddy, who just played in the McD's game, and might've come out ahead. The more I read about the kid, the more excited I get. I'm trying to check my anticipation for the inevitable academic problems or decommitment, but it's tough this time.
