Former Maryland men's basketball assistant coach Dalonte Hill was sentenced Wednesday to a week in jail after pleading guilty in Howard County to driving while impaired. The October incident led to his resignation. Circuit Court judge Richard S. Bernhardt also sentenced Hill to a year's probation, which would be supervised if Hill remains in the state and unsupervised if he were to get a job out of state. Hill, 35, resigned from Maryland in November, a little more than a month after he was cited for drunk driving.

So where do all the accusations and counter-accusations between sports agent  Joel Bell and basketball player Michael Beasley leave Maryland assistant coach Dalonte Hill? Does it change anything for Hill at all? I'm told Maryland has been pleased with Hill and continues  to feel that way.

Maryland's attempt to lure highly-touted recruiter Kenny Johnson back to his alma mater has proven to be unsuccessful. A source in College Park confirmed late Monday that Johnson, a 1999 Maryland graduate, had taken an offer to join Rick Pitino's staff at Louisville. Johnson's ties to Prince George's County-based AAU powerhouse Team Takeover was his entree into the college ranks at Towson three years ago. Johnson then made the meteoric leap to Indiana, where he recruited a number of five-star talents, including Big Ten freshman of the year Noah Vonleh.

Maryland men's basketball assistant Scott Spinelli is in "serious negotiations" to become an assistant under new Boston College coach Jim Christian, Terps coach Mark Turgeon said Monday.

What impact will the Maryland coaching moves involving Juan Dixon and Dustin Clark have on the team's on-court success?

The longtime general manager of D.C. Assault says he expects the Washington-based AAU basketball program to take “a PR [public relations] hit” after its co-founder was arrested on federal charges of drug trafficking , but he doesn't believe it will jeopardize the organization's future.

Long before he began recruiting future NBA No. 2 draft pick Michael Beasley for Kansas State, Dalonte Hill said he grasped something important about the player's personality. Beasley, Hill noticed, wasn't responding well to college coaches' incessant pitches — to all the phone calls and letters certain to find their way to young basketball prodigies such as Beasley. "People didn't know this about his recruitment, but if you pressure him, he goes into a shell," said Hill, a former coach in the D.C. Assault summer-league program in which Beasley starred.

It is going to be an interesting few days for Maryland basketball coach Mark Turgeon. Not only will Turgeon have to deal with the prospect of his first two-game losing streak since coming to College Park, the possibility of facing Duke without 7-1 freshman Alex Len (who sprained an ankle Saturday in the loss to Temple) and the hoopla surrounding naming of the court at Comcast Center in honor of longtime Terps coach Gary Williams. Turgeon will also have to figure out how to move forward with the punishment of assistant coach Dalonte Hill following his arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence Thursday morning in Anne Arundel County.

Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. If Chinanu Onuaku has a favorite school or plans to make a decision any time this summer, he's hiding it well. The fast-rising big man is rising fast for a reason: he's focused on improving his game rather than his recruitment. “I'm open,” said Onuaku, who's known to teammates and coaches as 'Nunu.' Onuaku, whose offer list is up to 14 schools following a strong showing at the NBPA Top 100 camp two weeks ago, said he's got no favorites, no visits planned and no intentions to commit this summer.
