Cleveland Melvin probably snuck up on more than a few teams during a 2010-11 season in which he was named Big East Rookie of the Year. But there was no element of surprise last season, when the Lake Clifton grad put up 17.5 points and 7.4 rebounds per game for the Blue Demons. “Coming into the season, [DePaul coach Oliver ] Purnell told me everyone is going to know who I am now,” Melvin said. “Obviously, that's what happened. Teams started putting more pressure on me and being more physical.

DAYTON, Ohio -- He carries such titles as the special assistant to the president, in which he serves as university ambassador at DePaul. He also carries a press pass these days as the color commentator for WGN radio, which broadcasts DePaul basketball games.But to those who know and love him, he's still just referred to as Coach. And much like Magic, Michael and Bird, no second name is really needed. "Coach" is something that Ray Meyer will always be.At the age of 76, Meyer is a living legend.

LANDOVER -- The pieces seemed to be falling in place for the Georgetown University basketball team. The 18th-ranked Hoyas had won their past two games, coming from 16 points behind on the road to beat Pittsburgh and slowing it down to a crawl to upset fifth-ranked St. John's.Moreover, Alonzo Mourning seemed finally to be getting back into the flow after missing more than a month with a strained left arch. In the first 10 minutes yesterday against DePaul, the junior forward and Dikembe Mutombo, Georgetown's 7-foot-2 senior center, had helped the Hoyas build a 12-point lead.

Cleveland Melvin tells no great tales — yet. No tales of surviving the life in East Baltimore, the neighborhood near urban ground zero for such happy TV fare as "Homicide: Life on the Street," "The Wire" and "The Corner. " No stories about the glory of DePaul basketball past — long past. No self-aggrandizement acknowledging being last season's Big East Rookie of the Year, an accolade achieved innumerable xBox reloads ago by NBA stars Carmelo Anthony, Allen Iverson and Patrick Ewing.

BUFFALO, N.Y. - DePaul or Dayton? It was suggested that the teams were even going into their NCAA playoff game last night, and after struggling through regulation and overtime, they still were dead even. The Blue Demons" first NCAA appearance in four years kept 18,698 at HSBC Arena enthralled as every time the buzzer sounded the game was tied. DePaul (22-9) had the will, but not always the way against the Flyers (24-9) of the Atlantic 10, who spurted to an early lead, fell behind by seven points in the second half, then regrouped and rallied before finally falling, 76-69.

Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. After a strong summer during which he showed off a slimmed down physique, improved agility and consistent production, Charles Mitchell vaulted himself onto most Top 100 lists for the national class of 2012. He also became a priority recruit for several high-major programs, perhaps none more so than Maryland.

If Navy was supposed to roll over in its first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance, that memo never made it to the Bryce Jordan Center. The Midshipmen, a No. 14 seed out of the Patriot League, figured not to stand much of a chance against the Big East Conference's DePaul Blue Demons, the No. 3 seed in the Philadelphia region. When it was over, when Navy's best season ended with a 56-43 loss Saturday afternoon, senior point guard Angela Myers wiped her face before taking the dais, another reminder of how this tournament can end for players such as Myers so suddenly, when, in her case, it took four years to get here.

Before they left for University Park, Pa., to play in their first NCAA tournament, the Navy women's basketball players had plenty of free time. School was on spring break, and other than practice, there wasn't much to do. So they went out in Annapolis, and everywhere they went someone recognized them and wished them luck. "We were talking about it," senior center Cassie Consedine said. "Megan Matheny said, 'Man, that meant a lot.' For somebody to see you — you can see somebody and not say anything — but for them to make the gesture and actually say something, really means a lot to us. These people, this community behind us, it just means a lot to us. " No. 14 seed Navy, which plays third-seeded DePaul on Saturday in the first round, has gained quite a following — a far cry from Consedine's freshman season when few people paid attention to the Midshipmen.

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The two coaches walked slowly toward each other and hugged at midcourt. Both wanted this game, but neither wanted it to be against the other. This is the cruel justice of the NCAA tournament. Jim Calhoun, upset stomach and all, will go to Phoenix. Dave Leitao, Calhoun's former player and longtime assistant, will go home and think about a season in which he restored the tradition of DePaul basketball. "My hat's off to Dave Leitao," Calhoun said. "He's done a tremendous job. I would love to be going somewhere in our region with Dave going somewhere else but that isn't the way it works.
