The Big Ten Conference will announce Tuesday that its 2017 men's basketball tournament will be played at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. A news conference is scheduled for 1 p.m. Tuesday at the arena. It will mark the first time since the conference established a postseason tournament nearly two decades ago that the event will be held in a city other than Chicago or Indianapolis. In an interview with The Baltimore Sun, Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany said that the addition of Maryland and Rutgers beginning July 1 is a sign of the conference planting roots on the East Coast after mostly being in the Midwest throughout its history.

No matter what happens the rest of the NFL season, Baltimore will be represented Super Bowl weekend in the New York region.  While it remains to be seen if that includes the Ravens competing on the field, Baltimore-bred rock quartet J. Roddy Walston and the Business will take part in the festivities. The band will join Red Hot Chili Peppers, MS MR, Basic Vacation and New Politics for WFAN's "Big Hello to Brooklyn" concert at the Barclays Center on Feb. 1, the night before Super Bowl XLVIII in New Jersey.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. - Maryland returned to the Barclays Center a year older and maybe a year wiser, but the Terps seemed to follow the same script against No. 18 Connecticut on Friday night that they did in a three-point loss to No. 3 Kentucky in last season's opener. Seemingly as nervous as they were against the Wildcats, the Terps fell behind early and by a lot - 12 at halftime, 17 early in the second half - before staging a furious comeback that, again, fell short. Junior point guard Dez Wells missed two shots in the closing seconds and Maryland lost, 78-77, before a pro-Terps crowd of 12,867.

The last time the Maryland men's basketball team faced off against Kentucky was back in 2002, when the Terps beat the Wildcats , 76-68, in the Sweet 16 en route to the program's first and only national championship. According to a report in Crain's New York Business , though, the two storied programs could find themselves on the same court once again in non-conference play during the 2012-13 season. The article, written by Matthew Flamm, states that a Maryland-Kentucky matchup will be the first basketball game played in the Barclays Center, the future home of the New Jersey Nets, which is set to open in September 2012.

Maryland confirmed it will play Kentucky next season at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. The arena, scheduled to open in September 2012, is to be the home of the NBA's Nets. The Terps-Wildcats game on Nov. 9 will be among the first college basketball games at the venue. The Terps will be bolstered by a 2012 recruiting class ranked by many in the top 25. The game will be a reunion of sorts for Maryland coach Mark Turgeon and Kentucky coach John Calipari.

Et cetera Hopkins' Marcello loses in D-III wrestling title match Johns Hopkins senior 141-pound wrestler Paul Marcello lost a 2-1 decision to third-seeded Adam Sheley in the championship match at the NCAA Division III championships in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Sheley made a second-period escape and secured the title with riding time. After a scoreless first period, Sheley started in the down position and quickly worked his way free to grab a 1-0 lead. He nearly built that lead to 3-0 midway through the period as he caught Marcello's attempt at a double-leg takedown with a body lock, but Marcello fought free and the period ended with Sheley up 1-0. Marcello, who entered the tournament as the No. 5 seed, started on the bottom in the third period and worked to get free, but Sheley held him for nearly 90 seconds before surrendering the escape with 35 seconds on the clock.

Fundraising events can make for strange bedfellows, particularly when it comes to politics. But more than a few heads were turned, eyebrows were raised and stomachs were -- well, you get the picture -- when it was announced that former longtime rivals and now retired college basketball coaches Gary Williams and Jim Calhoun would be part of the same "Lunch with Legends" in New York City. In town for a game Friday night between their two former teams at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., Williams and Calhoun broke only bread during a luncheon hosted by the Terrapin Club. Williams and Calhoun seem to have buried the proverbial hatchet in their well-publicized feud that flared up nearly a decade ago when the Terps and Huskies were both recruiting former Archbishop Spalding star Rudy Gay, who eventually chose Connecticut.

COLLEGE PARK - The one constant in Mark Turgeon's steady climb up the coaching ladder was building the type of reputation that most in his profession covet. It is summed up by two simple letters that for decades have described some of basketball's top minds: X's and O's. Trying to attract what once were called blue-chip prospects to programs that were off the radar because of location, league affiliation or fan interest was often difficult, making it crucial for Turgeon to outcoach his counterparts.

The formerly city-owned Barclay Recreation Center will make its debut as a privately run community center May 18, serving the Charles Village area, including the Abell, Oakenshawe, Harwood and Old Goucher communities. A grand opening celebration, possibly with Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake in attendance, is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the center, 2900 Barclay St., in the Charles Village area. The Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks last year turned over the underutilized, 7,300-square-foot facility to the city public school next door, Barclay Elementary/Middle, to operate as a social and education center in a public-private partnership with the nonprofit Greater Homewood Community Corp.

Inside the former Barclay Recreation Center on Saturday, the smell of fumes filled the air as a band of volunteers spent the morning putting on a fresh coat of paint in anticipation of its reopening under new management later this year. The city's Department of Recreation and Parks shut down the center last August after 32 years and handed it over to the neighboring Barclay Elementary and Middle School. Volunteers from the area finally started working earlier this year to get the facility back up and running.
