The pro-am league over at the Melo Center -- aka the Carmelo Anthony Youth Development Center -- on Fayette Street has been attracting some pretty big names for its glorified pickup games this summer. On Monday night, former Lake Clifton star Josh Selby, a second-round draft pick of the Memphis Grizzlies, went up against Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings in what was likely a lightly-defended affair. Selby reportedly scored 48 points , but Jennings has blown up the blogosphere with an off-the-backboard dunk . I'm not sure why Jennings was in town -- maybe he had to make a stop at the Under Armour campus because he has an endorsement deal with the Baltimore apparel company -- but he left his mark at the Melo Center.

Former Baltimore prep basketball star Aquille Carr plans to pursue a professional career overseas instead of playing at Seton Hall next season, he announced Saturday evening after he scored 52 points in his final high school game. Carr, who played his senior season at Princeton Day Academy in Laurel, had strongly hinted at his intentions in an interview last month and again in a series of tweets last week. He verbally committed to Seton Hall early last year and maintained all along that if he played in college, that would be his destination.
