Weekend wrap – Gibbs, Faust in action
Maryland's two commitments for the 2011 basketball recruiting class were both in action over the weekend.
Senior guard Sterling Gibbs scored 21 points for Seton Hall, including four straight off steals early in the fourth period to open a 48-44 lead.
City got a team-high 22 points from senior forward Nick Faust, with senior guard Mike Cheatham adding 17.
“It was like ‘wow’ for a minute,” said Oakland Mills forward Greg Whittington (14 points, 10 rebounds). “But all we had to do was slow it down and work it around to get open shots against their 2-3 (zone). We just had to step it up and work harder.”
The Aviators improved to 7-0 with the help of Chloe Pavlech's 14 points.
"I really want to talk to the coaches before I say anything and I'm not either way about it right now," Grommer said. "I've been just trying to concentrate on the Shrine Bowl and have fun and then I'll worry about that later.
"As of right now, I'm still committed to Maryland," Twine said Saturday, after Team Baltimore beat Team Washington, 21-17, in the Crab Bowl. "I haven't heard anything different."
