Weekend wrap — Williams dominates again

Maryland power forward recruit Jordan Williams saved one of his best performances of the year for Torrington (Conn.) High’s regular-season home finale.

Williams powered the Raiders to an 87-76 win over Crosby on Friday

Jordan Williams had an even more monster game than usual with 52 points (tying his own single-game school scoring record), 21 rebounds and five blocks.

• Terps shooting guard target Lance Stephenson traveled to Kansas this weekend to see the Jayhawks take on Nebraska. According to, the Kansas student section did their best to make Stephenson feel at home.

One student held up an oversized picture of Stephenson’s face and had Stephenson sign the back of the picture.

What’s more, the fans chanted “Rock Chalk Stephenson” in the final seconds of the game and cheered wildly as he exited with coach Bill Self and KU’s players out of the northwest tunnel following the final horn.

• Terps power forward target Will Regan led the Nichols School (N.Y.) to a 68-38 win over Canisius for the Monsignor Martin regular-season championship on Friday.

Will Regan, who is being recruited by several Division I programs, had a triple-double with 32 points, 13 rebounds and 10 blocks.

• Terps women’s commitment Alyssa Thomas guided Central Dauphin (Pa.) to a quarterfinal playoff win over CD East on Friday.

Alyssa Thomas had 12 of her game-high 20 points in the second when CD outscored East by 14 on its way to a 50-41 victory.

If Lance enjoys such exciting activities as watching the grass grow, cow tipping and bingo, then MD doesn't stand a chance against Kansas. Here's hoping that Lance isn't a major hick trapped inside a city boy's body.
But seriously, the school I am most worried about is UCLA -- That's MD's competition for a big city kid like Lance. And, of course, don't forget about the Johnnies.


You clearly haven't taken a look at the current Kansas roster. They are raiding the east coast players that Maryland can't seem to get anymore. Two players from Philly along with about 4 guys from New Jersey.

Don't be surprised when Lance Stephenson follows in the footsteps of former Jayhawk and NYC native Russell Robinson on his way to Lawrence.

yea maryland has so much more to offer.
