One word perfectly depicts what the recruiting picture for Southern High guard Bryan Harris looked like at this time last year. “Nothing,” Harris said Sunday. “I had some DIII schools call me, stuff like that.” Despite a senior season in which he averaged 20 points, four assists and four rebounds and earned a reputation as arguably the top player in Anne Arundel County, Harris graduated without a single Division I offer.   Flash forward to present day, and Harris was faced with a much different dilemma: having to choose between scholarship offers from several DI programs.

Over the past two years, Bryan Harris graduated from Southern High, completed a successful post-grad year at Massanutten (Va.) Military Academy, committed to Duquesne, parted ways with the Dukes after their coach was fired, signed with Wofford and then returned home to Maryland after the first semester of his freshman year.   “It seems like every day I'm waiting for something else to happen. It's been a crazy process the last few years,” Harris said. “Everything is finally set now. I can just focus on school and basketball.” The focus now for Harris, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound point guard, will be playing basketball and studying computer science at UMBC.

Forget the Atlantic 10 Conference mystique and the three-point shooting prowess of Duquesne guard Tom Pipkins.They were no match whatsoever for Coppin State's smothering defense and home-court mastery last night at the Coppin Center.The Eagles took command late in the first half and proceeded to win their 42nd in a row at home, 91-57, avenging last season's one-point defeat at Duquesne.In Coppin's only appearance on its home court until Jan. 15, the Eagles pressured the Dukes into 24 turnovers and unleashed a 25-7 run in the first eight minutes of the second half to burst ahead by 35.They harassed Pipkins -- who was shooting 48 percent from three-point range -- and his teammates into shots from unfavorable positions and used the strong defense to jump-start their offense.

When a gentleman from Duquesne called a couple weeks ago, Stacey Gilligan thought he was calling from Pittsburgh to solicit money from an alumnus for the Dukes' athletic program. Little did the former Glen Burnie All-Metro and county player of the year (1990) know he was calling to inform her that she had been chosen for induction into the school's Hall of Fame. "I said thank you, wow, didn't know what to say because I couldn't believe it and was pretty overwhelmed," said the 26-year old Gilligan, a 1995 Duquesne graduate.

COLLEGE PARK - The Maryland Terrapins concluded the first homestand in their new basketball arena last night by slapping aside one more weakling, as the Duquesne Dukes proved to be another brand of early-season fodder for the defending national champions. Led by senior guards Drew Nicholas and Steve Blake, senior center Ryan Randle and a stifling defense that forced a staggering 35 turnovers, the 11th-ranked Terps had no trouble running the Dukes out of Comcast Center, 89-39, before an announced crowd of 17,629.

For five days last month, Bryan Harris had found everything he wanted in a college basketball program. Harris, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound combo guard, graduated from Southern in 2011 with no Division I scholarship offers. But a standout post-grad season with Massanutten Military Academy in Virginia earned him several DI offers, including one from Duquesne, which he accepted May 18 . Harris' happiness, however, proved to be fleeting. On May 23, Duquesne fired coach Ron Everhart , leaving Harris' status as a Dukes commitment utterly uncertain.

While McDonogh alum Joe Yermal has posted a 7-0 record along with a 2.73 ERA for the University of Charlotte baseball team, it is reliever Bryan Hamilton (Mount St. Joseph) who keeps delivering out of the bullpen for the 49ers. Hamilton (3-2) got his third save of the season Tuesday in a 7-5 win over Winthrop, limiting the Eagles to one hit and no runs over the final 2 2/3 innings. It was eight days ago that the sophomore right-hander found himself as a designated hitter in the eighth inning because of an injured teammate.
