Weekend wrap – Big game for Gibbs in win

Sterling Gibbs' Seton Hall Prep (N.J.) squad is still in the hunt for a county championship.

The Maryland bound-point guard guided the Pirates to a 66-55 win over Newark Central on Saturday.

Senior guard Sterling Gibbs connected for 17 of his game-high 27 points and junior guard Dallas Anglin scored all of his 15 in the second half to rally top-seeded and No. 8 Seton Hall Prep from a 27-21 deficit in the Essex County Tournament semifinals at West Orange High.

• St. John's Northwestern Military Academy forward Martin Breunig was at Comcast Center on Sunday to see Maryland's win over North Carolina State.

• A big game from Terps women's commitment Lexie Brown wasn't enough for North Gwinnett (Ga.) in its 59-44 loss to Norcross.

Lexie Brown led a North charge in the fourth quarter but it was too little, too late. Also a top sophomore prospect, she put on a good show for the college coaches with 31 points, including 16 in the fourth quarter.

Was Whittington at the game too?

Antonio: There were reports before the game that he was going to be there. I'm hoping to catch up with his coach today. -- Matt

How many scholarships does GW have left to play with? He needs guys with bball IQ on par with the rest of the school. Ready for some players with game who can use their biggest muscle the brain!

Ardmore Ari: The Terps can give two more scholarships in the 2011 class. -- Matt

Any word on Breunigs visit?

JP: Pretty sure it was wrapping up today. Also, Whittington wasn't at Comcast yesterday. His coach said he wasn't feeling well. -- Matt


I know some think Rivals is the worst, and I personally think ESPN has the best track record, but, looking ahead to 2012, is there anyone in the top tier, 5 star range that MD has on the radar?
I have never seen a "elite" college program lack in recruiting like this.
You see players going to Charleston, VT, NC State, etc. and MD can't get any of them.

Why? And, is there anyone we should be aware of?
I don't mean like 132, but say, top 20.

Ryan: I think there are Top 20ish guys for 2012 that Maryland has offered, but it's too early to tell how much interest they have in the Terps. Plus, Maryland is still going after the three 2011 big men, which is obviously the priority at the moment. -- Matt
