Area high school basketball coaches had heard of Donnie Gross long before the Amateur Athletic Union coach gave Maryland guard Duane Simpkins a $2,000 loan to pay campus parking fines.Most coaches say they don't know Gross well. Others say he befriended their players, induced them to play in tournaments with free travel and apparel, and then gave them bad advice about academics and recruiting.In an interview with The Sun, Gross defended his seven years as the founder and coach of the D.C. Players, a defunct summer league team that featured future Terrapins Simpkins, Exree Hipp, Keith Booth, Johnny Rhodes, Laron Profit and Obinna Ekezie and Simpkins' father, Sylvester, as an assistant coach.
