Aquille Carr's plan to sign a professional contract overseas doesn't seem to be going well. The two-time All-Metro Player of the Year, who played his senior season at Princeton Day Academy after three years at Patterson, participated in the 2013 adidas Eurocamp last weekend. According to DraftExpress.com's Jonathan Givony , Carr "struggled mightily" and "didn't look prepared to compete in this setting" at the La Ghirada Sports Center in Treviso, Italy. Carr, who scored 52 points in his final game for Princeton Day in March, announced his plan to pursue a professional career instead of playing in college at Seton Hall -- the school to which he committed in January 2012.

Knox is a shoe saleswoman; she thought she knew the styles, what passed muster on the street. Then her 17-year-old daughter got a look at them. "Freaky Rees!" she screamed.

Under Armour took on Nike and Adidas - and won. Beating out much bigger rivals to partner with the University of Notre Dame and its athletic teams catapulted the Baltimore-based sports brand onto an elite playing field, marketing experts say. The endorsement deal, announced Tuesday, signals how far fast-growing Under Armour plans to go and how it plans to get there. "It's a signal to their competitors, to the stock market, to the consumer, that they're in this for the long run," said Amna Kirmani, a professor of marketing at the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business.

Most importantly, though, the event Wednesday at the sports apparel company's Tide Point headquarters answered questions the investment community brought to Baltimore. Analysts, who are invited to the facility only every two years, were eager to more closely investigate the company's merchandise and speak with product developers.

He had nothing good to say about the controversial shoes known as "slave Adidas," suede athletic shoes with plastic shackles that clamp onto the shin like an accessory.
