In their most significant challenge to date, senior guard Maurice White scored 19 points and three of his teammates also reached double figures as the No. 2 Panthers beat nationally ranked Travis (Texas), 63-58, Friday in the I-95 Elite Challenge at Loyola University.

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.

According to a tweet by USA Today national basketball reporter Eric Prisbell - who formerly covered Maryland football and national college basketball for the Washington Post - Harrison Sr. said the lunch "went well" and that Maryland came on “strong at the end”.

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.

Maryland Madness is shaping up to be a huge recruiting night for the Terps. According to ESPN.com's Andy Katz, Maryland will play host to the Harrison twins Oct. 12 -- the night of UM's annual season-opening event. Don't sell Maryland short on the recruiting front, though. Turgeon is still trying to land two of the top four prizes in the class in Andrew and Aaron Harrison, a pair of perimeter players who said they will attend the same school. The Harrison twins are likely going to College Park for Midnight Madness on Oct. 12, according to a source.

First, they emerged into the national spotlight as young hoops prodigies, earning lofty national rankings as freshmen. Then came the showering of scholarship offers, followed by a flirtation with making early commitments during the summer before their junior year. But they pumped the brakes on their recruitment and focused on basketball, solidifying their status as the nation's No. 1 rated prospects at each of their respective positions.
