Loyola's Savage to coach U.S. Stars in Capital Classic

April 01, 1992|By Sam Davis | Sam Davis,Staff Writer

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.

"You need pretty good players against those guys," said Savage, whose Loyola team lost to Dunbar twice this season by more than 40 points. "This time I might have a better chance."

Savage's U.S. All-Stars include McDonald's All-Americans Jason Kidd, St. Joseph's High, Alameda, Calif.; Matrice Moore, Oak Hill (Va.) Academy; Greg Simpson, Lima (Ohio) High; and Chris Collins, Glenbrook (Ill.) North High.
