Playing junior college basketball in Missouri, Evan Singletary was mostly recruited by Division I programs in the South and the Midwest. But the former Dunbar guard was hoping for more East Coast schools to come after him. "I wanted to be closer to my daughter," said Singletary, who graduated from Dunbar in 2012 and enrolled at Moberly Area Community College the following fall. "She's 3 months [old] now. That was really a key thing. I didn't want to be real far. " Starting this summer, Singletary will be just a five-hour drive away from his daughter.

Maryland defensive line coach Greg Gattuso will be hired as the next head coach at Albany, according to multiple media reports. Gattuso, 51, was the head coach at Duquesne for 12 years before going to Pittsburgh as an assistant for six seasons and then joining Randy Edsall's staff three years ago. A Maryland athletic department spokesman referred all questions regarding Gattuso to Albany. An athletic department spokeswoman there did not return multiple messages left by The Baltimore Sun. Gattuso was instrumental in the Terps' strong defensive line play, first with Joe Vellano and A.J. Francis last season and then this year with Andre Monroe, Quinton Jefferson and Darius Kilgo.

Denver coach Bill Tierney jokes that it took only four years for college coaches, including himself, to put Eric Law in the best position to succeed. Law has gone from being a backup at Salisbury as a freshman to - after transferring to the Pioneers - a sophomore midfielder to a junior wing attackman to the quarterback of the offense in 2013. And Law has thrived in his latest role, setting both team and personal bests in assists (31) and points (64). “So finally, after three years of playing - one at Division III, one at midfield and one at not his most comfortable position - in his fourth year of college, he gets to do what he does best, and you've seen the results,” Tierney said with a chuckle.
