Albany transfer Logan Aronhalt's commitment to Maryland this week was big news in the shooting guard's hometown of Zanesville.
WHIZ, the local TV station in the southeastern Ohio town, caught up with Aronhalt and his father, Scott, the Zanesville High basketball coach, to discuss the fifth-year senior's decision to become a Terp.
"Maryland jumped in about a week ago," Aronhalt said, "and with my brothers being so close I couldn't say no."

* Annapolis Area Christian point guard Conner Lipinski, who previously accepted a preferred walk-on offer to play at Maryland, was awarded a two-year scholarship by the Terps this week, according to the Capital's Mike Peters.
* The Harrison twins' father told Adam Zagoria that his sons are looking to make a fall decision.
“It’s around that time,” Aaron Harrison Sr. told SNY.tv Thursday, confirming comments he made to the Kentucky Rivals site. “Their birthday is Oct. 28. They want to get it done before the high school season starts.”
* Maryland women's guard commitment Lexie Brown was picked for the USA Basketball team that will compete in the FIBA Americas U-18 tournament this summer in Puerto Rico.
At times, depending on the construct of her team, Brown was asked to play the point guard position and orchestrate the offense and then later move to the wing and find ways to score the ball inside an offensive set. It was her ability to handle both roles that helped her solidify her spot on the U18 national team.
