Editor's note: Each week,  InsideMDSports.com  provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. The past month was slow for hoops recruiting, thanks to the NCAA's limitation of early "open" periods. But with coaches allowed to hit the road again beginning last week, the pace in the class of 2015 has picked up considerably. Because of his growing interest in St. James point guard Justin Robinson , it seems Terps coach Mark Turgeon didn't press for a commitment from Kevin Dorsey . New offers Maryland handed out a couple of offers Tuesday to a pair of top-50 guards in Eric Davis and Prince Ali . It initially was thought that Mark Turgeon wouldn't pursue guards in 2015, but the transfers of Seth Allen and Roddy Peters, combined with transfer Terry Henderson's selection of North Carolina State, has him in the market for at least one and perhaps two in this recruiting class.

Sun columnist Mike Preston weighed-in on the NFL lockout yesterday. He wrote about the skyrocketing costs of gasoline, the tsunami in Japan and the rising national debt. His point was simple: There are things in life more important that millionaire athletes bickering with billionaire owners. There are things in life more important than sports.  President Obama, it seems, has a different take. Instead of spending every waking hour concerning himself with America's stagnant economy or whether the U.S. should take action against Libya, Obama has been spending his time researching college basketball to make his March Madness picks  for a segment on ESPN.

Mike Coughlan is a basketball junkie in the purest form. He simply loves the game and everything that comes with it.  Just how much? He was happy to see the Super Bowl come and go, so he can start seeing and hearing more about the NBA.  Since 1997, he has coached boys and girls basketball at various levels, everything from a junior varsity/assistant varsity boys coach at Howard High to a number of successful girls AAU teams.   When Marriotts Ridge...

They have survived badly sprained ankles and torn knee ligaments, mild concussions and more than their share of poor shooting days. Ralph Piersanti, one of the oldest in a group, has had two heart attacks. But they keep playing a game that used to be thought of for mostly younger men and women. Three times a week, more than two dozen men in their 60s, 70s and even a few like Piersanti, in their 80s, typically show up at the Bykota Senior Center in Towson - normally thought of as a place for more placid activities such as bingo and line-dancing - to play basketball.

It all still lives in Larry Gibson — the warm lights of Cole Field House, the coaching assistant who told him to remember "1, 2, 3, swish" before free throws, his shots that beat No. 1 Notre Dame and sent Maryland fans streaming onto the court on Super Bowl Sunday 1979. It is through pulsating, basketball-filled nights — through memories of sweat and rebounds and cheerleaders and fight songs — that Gibson, now 55, returns to his aging teammates in fleeting moments.

Item: Washington is abuzz with the shocking defeat of House majority Leader Eric Cantor in a Republican primary. David Brat, a tea party-inspired college professor with little money but plenty of energy, pulled off the historic upset. Most of the mainstream media coverage focused on Mr. Cantor's support (albeit tepid) for a set of immigration reform principles that some on the right interpreted as "amnesty" - and that such support was the primary cause of his loss at the hands of an unknown, underfunded candidate.

The transformation of the Maryland basketball team is not yet complete, as Mark Turgeon still has two roster spots left to fill if he so chooses. If Turgeon has learned anything from the tumultuous stretch that saw five players from last year's team leave for a variety of reasons, it is this: he and his staff have to do a better job recruiting players who will fit his system and accept roles that don't necessarily include being scorers or stars or even starters. In announcing Thursday that 7-foot Slovakian forward Michal Cekovsky had signed his letter of intent and 6-3 shooting guard Richaud Pack was transferring after graduating from North Carolina A&T, Turgeon was quick to talk about their character as much as their talent.

Less than a month after being named Maryland's director of basketball operations, Cliff Warren was promoted Tuesday to an assistant coach position. Warren, 46, replaces Scott Spinelli, who left last month for a similar position at Boston College. To fill the basketball operation job, Maryland hired Nima Omidvar, who spent the past three seasons as the video coordinator at North Carolina State. The addition of Warren gives Mark Turgeon the most experienced assistant he has ever had in his 16-year head coaching career.

The outrageously bigoted remarks attributed to the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team mock the positive role black athletes have played in professional sports, even as those sports have served as an exit ramp from poverty. Perhaps the most incredible of Clippers owner Donald Sterling's taped remarks came when his former girlfriend reminded him that he had a whole team made up of black players. His response was: "I support them and give them food and clothes and cars and houses.
