Maryland shooting guard target Aaron Harrison scored 42 points (including 35 in the second half) in the Houston Defenders' win over Net Gain Sports at Under Armour's Are You From Here? Classic near Dallas. Rivals.com's Eric Bossi weighed in on Harrison's performance . You name a way that a high school, or high-level college, shooting guard could possibly be expected to score the ball and Harrison did it. He used his 6-foot-5 size and strength to overwhelm guys, he drained deep jumpers and he did everything in between while playing like a young Chauncey Billups . Check out highlights of Harrison's game, courtesy of HoopMixTape.com, below.

Mark Turgeon didn't watch the live ESPNU show in which Andrew and Aaron Harrison told the world last October that they would be attending Kentucky in 2013, rather than Maryland. The Terps coach didn't need to tune in to the broadcast to know what the  twin prodigies' verdict would be. He had been tipped off already by the players' father. At that point, the uber-competitive former Kansas point guard didn't want to have it rubbed in. He just wanted to move on. And move on Turgeon did. Recruiting comes first with Turgeon, who is extremely confident in his ability to evaluate talent and close deals.

Five weeks from today, Maryland opens its 2012-13 men's basketball season against defending national champion Kentucky at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. It might be an opportunity for the Terps to exact some revenge for what transpired inside a packed gymnasium at a Texas high school late Thursday afternoon. Before a national television audience on ESPNU and after weeks of speculation that seemed to get more heated by the day, twin guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison announced that they would be headed to Lexington next year to play for the Wildcats rather than College Park to play for the Terps.

Some might look at Roddy Peters as a consolation prize for Maryland after the Terps finished second to Kentucky in their pursuit of the Harrison twins. Peters, the 6-4 Suitland point guard who announced Tuesday that he was headed to College Park next season , is not as talented as Andrew Harrison. But I think he might be a better fit for what Mark Turgeon is trying to build - or rebuild - than either of the Harrisons. He is this year's Jake Layman, a kid who not many upper-echelon programs wanted after his sophomore year in high school and was highly sought by the time he was a senior.

To the surprise of no one, the Harrison twins revealed this week that they consider Kentucky and Maryland their top two schools. Aaron Harrison Sr. told ESPN.com's Reggie Rankin that his five-star sons trimmed Baylor and Villanova from their list, leaving the Terps and Wildcats as co-leaders and SMU "a distant third. " With the news of the Harrison twins' final list, KentuckySports.com offered its take on where the 2013 guards stand. Harrison Sr. told the Herald-Leader earlier this week that the family had no more visits planned, though a trip to Maryland on Oct. 12 for that school's midnight madness remains a “possibility.” He said the twins would not be visiting Kentucky before making a decision.

The collective emotions of Maryland fans were bottled up inside the walls of Looney's Pub as the anticipation of where the Harrison twins would play -- UM or Kentucky -- reached its climax. Wildcats 2, Terps 0. As the word “Kentucky” spilled out of Aaron Harrison's mouth during a live broadcast on ESPNU, the packed bar let out a shared groan. Some shouted expletives, some rushed out, others buried their faces into their hands.  One girl took off her glasses to stop the tears from forming.
