The 5-foot-7 senior guard played a key role in two wins last week for the No. 6 Gators, including a 60-54 upset over Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference rival St. Frances. Nicknamed "Stixz," Wilson had 24 points, eight steals and three assists in the victory. She also had 10 points, five steals and five assists, as well as providing a critical calming influence for the Gators in a physical 47-43 victory over MATHS. Wilson, who has signed to play at Howard, missed much of last season when she was sidelined with a concussion early and then returned for a few games before suffering a broken nose.

The Colonial Athletic Association is planning what it called a "major announcement" in Baltimore Wednesday regarding its postseason men's basketball tournament. It had been reported previously that the CAA was interested in possibly moving the tournament away from Richmond, Va., where it has been held since 1990, and that Baltimore was on the list of potential sites. The CAA sent out an email to coaches and administrators at its member schools Tuesday regarding the move, according to a coach who received it. Rob Washburn, a spokesman for the CAA, declined to comment about the move when reached at league offices Tuesday in Richmond.

Nike made its mark with Michael Jordan sneakers in the 1980s, eventually wresting near-total control of the U.S. basketball shoe market from Adidas, Reebok and other smaller players. Now, Baltimore sports apparel company Under Armour Inc. is trying to gain a foothold in the fiercely competitive business with its first-ever basketball shoe collection, which was unveiled Thursday and will hit stores in limited numbers in November. The step is a crucial one for Under Armour, whose footwear business has been struggling even as executives consider it a key part of the corporate growth strategy.
