Allen's 26 points lead Terps to second win in Bahamas
Rising Maryland sophomore Seth Allen had 26 points and 10 assists in a 97-90 win Wednesday night over the Commonwealth Giants, the Terps' second win in as many games during their summer tour in the Bahamas. Allen was 9-for-10 from the field, including 5-for-5 from beyond the arc. Sophomore forward Jake Layman scored 14 points, while sophomore forward Charles Mitchell finished with 12 points and a team-high 13 rebounds.
Recruiting: The Terps have stepped up their pursuit of Class of 2014 target Gary Clark, one of the fastest-rising prospects in the nation. The Clayton, N.C., forward moved this summer to the high-profile CP3 Amateur Athletic Union program to boost his exposure, and his dominant showing in the Peach Jam playoffs in mid-July proved a coming-out party. With offers from Maryland, North Carolina State, Miami, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and others, the 6-foot-7 Clark said he is tentatively planning to check out Maryland this month. "I'm really familiar with the area because that's where my dad lives [in Brandywine]," he said.
