This year's Capital Classic already had a strong local flavor with three area players on the Capital team, and now it has even more of a taste of Baltimore: Loyola's Jerry Savage will coach the U.S. All-Stars.
"I'm really looking forward to it," Savage said of the April 9 game at Maryland's Cole Field House (8 p.m.). "Certainly it's an honor and a challenge in that you get to work with some of the best players in the country."
Savage, considered one of the area's best coaches, has a 447-270 record in 24 years at Loyola. Harker Prep coach Stu Vetter will coach the Capital All-Stars, who will include Donta Bright and Michael Lloyd of Dunbar and Kwame Evans of Southern.
