Mount Carmel wing Rashard Todd has played basketball for just three-and-a-half years, but that relatively minimal amount of on-court experience was more than enough for the coaches at Central Connecticut State. The Blue Devils began recruiting Todd in February and never let up in their pursuit of him. On Monday, Todd rewarded their persistence with his commitment. “It feels good,” Todd said Tuesday. “It's been kind of stressful, but it's nice to be DI.” Todd joined Tom Rose 's Mount Carmel program as a sophomore.

It took two visits before Evan Phoenix told the Central Connecticut State coaching staff that he wanted to play basketball there. In the Calvert Hall junior's mind, though, the first trip was more than enough. “When I first stepped on the campus, it just seemed like the environment I wanted to be in,” Phoenix said. “Everything just seemed right.” Phoenix committed to the Blue Devils last week. The 6-foot-9, 220-pound power forward also considered offers from American, Hartford and UMBC.

Men's basketball Gay says broken jaw came on 'dirty play' Team USA forward Rudy Gay (Archbishop Spalding) told USA Today on Saturday that the broken jaw he suffered in Thursday's win over Lithuania in the FIBA World Cup in Spain came on a "dirty play. " He is expected to play today when the U.S. squad faces Serbia in the gold-medal game. "I've got a fracture in my jaw, a broken tooth and am going to probably need a root canal," Gay said. "The top is where I got hit. It's painful.

When Juwan Newman rode the bench on an undefeated Lake Clifton team that featured three high-major players, he didn't complain. When the 6-foot-8, 215-pound power forward missed NCAA qualifying standards coming out of high school and prep school, he didn't stop working to improve his academics. And when the East Baltimore native moved across the country to attend junior colleges in New Mexico and Idaho, he didn't once think about retreating back home. “I knew I was never going to give up,” Newman said Sunday.

Cleveland Browns rookie running back Terrance West stood at one end of the field at Johnny Unitas Stadium on Saturday, watching the first half of his former school's season opener against Central Connecticut State. The Tigers probably wish West had been on the field, and not in the stands, for their 31-27 loss to a Blue Devils team that went 4-8 in 2013. A mostly gold-clad crowd of an announced 8,058 was treated to an uneven performance by an offense and defense just seven months removed from playing in the Football Championship Subdivision national championship game.

For only the second time since Rob Ambrose became Towson's coach, the Tigers will open the season with a game at home, welcoming Central Connecticut State to Johnny Unitas Stadium on Saturday at 6 p.m. The only other time in that span the Tigers played host to a season opener was in 2011, when they routed Morgan State, 42-3. Although Towson is just two games above .500 at home (15-13) under Ambrose, the program is 13-5 at Johnny Unitas Stadium in the past three years, and Ambrose said the team's recent success has had a noticeable impact in the stands.

Scott Dolch has found nearly everything he could have hoped for in college football at Central Connecticut State University. He's had success as a three-year starting quarterback at the Division I-AA level, gained recognition around campus and New Britain, and set school and Northeast Conference passing records. But there is a major missing element for the McDonogh School graduate: winning. The Blue Devils have a 10-19 record in the nearly three years Dolch has been the quarterback and are 3-6 this season.

There were at least 10 Division I basketball programs that wanted Iba Camara . Several more from the Atlantic 10 and Colonial Athletic Association hoped that the St. Paul's senior would wait until spring to sign his letter of intent. But for Camara, everything about his recruitment became clear when he visited New Hampshire earlier this month. “What I really liked about it is when I met this kid who is from Nigeria,” Camara, a native of Senegal, said of Wildcats freshman forward Williams Gabriel . “He couldn't speak a word of English.
