Best Shooter at LBJSA? Trevor Cooney
I like Cooney for a 2011 prospect, and even though I think big men need to be our focus in 2011, he should be near the top of the board.
Best Shooter: Trevor Cooney could have been the shooting instructor at the camp. He has great shooting technique that is consistent no matter the situation. Cooney has the ability to swing a game in a hurry with his 3-point shot. Though his long-term NBA prospects are a question, he has the makeup of an excellent college player.
Best of LBJSA & KCC
Reggie Rankin compiled his All-Star teams from the LBJSA and King City Classic. The only MD target on the list was CJ Leslie.
Breakdown: Leslie played with energy, effort and intensity all week. He ran the floor with great urgency and finished above the rim on every opportunity. He hit the glass hard and scored in the post with quick athletic moves. He must develop his perimeter ballhandling and shooting to take his game to the next level, but you never have to look for this high-energy forward when he is on the floor.

2012 Target Justin Anderson Posterizing Fools
Wow - this kid is a monster. These highlights are from the King City Classic, which he did very well in. If Anderson is a legit possibility, he has to be on the top of the board for 2012. He'd be a huge get.
Trevor Cooney Gets More Props for Shooting Ability
Looks like Cooney is getting a lot of notice for his shooting ability. Rivals took notice:
Trevor Cooney- Shooting will be his niche at the next level, and Cooney has had stretches in this event where he shot the ball at a high level. Capable of making shots both off the dribble and the catch, Cooney will become a much more efficient shooter if he avoids forcing the issue and plays within himself.
Terrell Stoglin, Santa Rita, Sr. (6-feet-1-inch, 180-pounds): Stoglin – the area’s most-wanted recruit since Elliott – committed to Gary Williams and Maryland right before Sean Miller signed at Arizona. And Stoglin wasn’t swayed in April, telling the Star’s Patrick Finley that he was not wavering at all despite the new UA hire. Curious to see how that develops for Stoglin – a sharp-shooting point guard who averaged 27-points as a junior and is ESPN’s 18th-rated PG in the country. How legit is he? Two years ago, at a tourney in San Diego, a then-soph Stoglin rained in 34 points against DeMar DeRozan…DeRozan was the 9th pick in the NBA Draft last month.
I guess I'd feel better if DeMar DeRozan was known for his defense more than his offense, but it's still very nice. I've been hearing that he could see a rise in the rankings if he had a solid July on the AAU circuit, so he could be rated higher in a couple weeks.
Dinich: Fridge needs to win before thinking of a contract extension
Of course he does, Heather. Maybe that's why he said he might consider coming back if Maryland won the Orange Bowl. Also, I'm confused that she insinuated we would lose to Duke - believe that when I see it.
Long but good gallery of NFL Terps
Feeling nostalgic? Got about 10 minutes to waste? This is what you should be doing. The Sun has posted a 78 image gallery of NFL Terps, and it's worth viewing if only for the memories.

Lubick still committed to GTown
The other day we mentioned that Nate Lubick had decommitted from Georgetown. That turned out to not be the case - he's still a Hoya.
