UNLV men's basketball coach Dave Rice said he wasn't the least bit surprised when one of his future players made the final cut for the 2014 USA Basketball Under-18 National Team. Former St. Frances standout and UNLV commit Dwayne Morgan was named to USA's final 12-man roster Sunday, but won't play with the team because of an illness in his family. USA Basketball on Wednesday announced that Chase Jeter from Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas would replace Morgan. Still, Rice praised his recruit's accomplishment.

Mark Turgeon and Bino Ranson were two of many college coaches in East Baltimore last night to see No. 1 St. Frances beat No. 2 Mount St. Joseph. The Maryland men's basketball head coach and assistant were courtside during the Panthers' 58-57 win, presumably to scout two players with Terps offers: St. Frances small forward Dwayne Morgan and Mount St. Joseph combo guard Phil Booth . Morgan was St. Frances' third-leading scorer (13 points) behind UNC-Greensboro signee Tevon Saddler (19 points)

Former St. Frances forward Dwayne Morgan has made the USA Basketball Men's U-18 National Team, the organization announced Sunday. Morgan was named one of 15 finalists for the 12-member team last week. “I'm really excited about the team. As it is every year, it was a really hard selection process because only 12 guys can be on the team," Billy Donovan, the national team coach, said in a statement. "We just tried not necessarily to take the 12 best players, we tried to take the guys that were going to make up the best team.

After cutting his list of potential colleges to three finalists, St. Frances small forward Dwayne Morgan has spent the past two weeks deciding between Maryland, Georgetown and Nevada-Las Vegas.

One of the top recruits in the Class of 2014, he announced his intention to play for coach Dave Rice and the Runnin' Rebels. “When I went on my visit, I felt like I was at home.

Potential is a word Dwayne Morgan has sought to vanquish. The 15th-ranked basketball prospect in the country according to Rivals.com, Morgan wants to be more than potential during his senior year at No. 3 St. Frances. Potential was the word stickered to him throughout his rise to relevance. It is a word, to him, used to signify doubt. "I think he's always given these glimpses in the past and it's always been about potential," says Eric Bossi, a national basketball recruiting analyst at Rivals.com.

There hasn't been a boys basketball team in the area able to consistently match the size, athleticism, depth and togetherness that No. 1 St. Frances has brought to the court this season. And when the Panthers are hitting their shots, they simply make the game look easy. Sunday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship game against No. 2 Mount St. Joseph was one of those occasions. The separation between the area's top two teams was significant at UMBC's packed RAC Arena, where the Panthers scored the game's first 11 points, led by as many as 24 in the second half and coasted through the fourth quarter in capturing the MIAA A crown with a 75-62 win over the Gaels.

Much of the buzz inside the packed gym at St. Frances on Monday night was focused on the return of former Patterson star Aquille Carr, who was back in Baltimore playing for his new team, Princeton Day Academy. While the 5-foot-7 guard, a two-time All-Metro Player of the Year, had his moments, it was the host Panthers who stole the show with poised play in the closing minutes. St. Frances scored the final six points in the last 2 minutes, 10 seconds, getting clutch baskets from Kurk Lee Jr. and Dwayne Morgan before Tevon Saddler sealed the win with two free throws in the closing seconds to secure a 72-66 win over Beltsville-based Princeton Day in front of an overflow crowd.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland  sports. What is the biggest surprise of this young Maryland basketball season? Jeff Barker: Well, it's not the contributions of all the newcomers. We all knew the freshmen - plus transfers Dez Wells and Logan Aronhalt - would assert themselves early. There was too much talent in the group for them not to. At one point during Tuesday night's Northwestern victory, coach Mark Turgeon had five players on the floor who weren't on the team last season: Charles Mitchell, Shaquille Cleare, Jake Layman, Seth Allen and Wells.

No. 4 St. Frances knew exactly who to go to in a tight game Thursday night against St. Maria Goretti. Senior forward Dwayne Morgan has responded much of the season. Coming out of a timeout with the Panthers up three and 2 minutes, 15 seconds left, Morgan took position deep in the post, got an entry pass, faked and then shot over Goretti standout Martin Geben. It banked off the backboard and in, the statement basket that would help St. Frances secure a 52-44 win over the Gaels. Morgan had a game-high 27 points - 17 in the second half - as the Panthers improved to 13-3 overall and 3-0 in the Baltimore Catholic League.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. Now that Maryland has reached the semifinals of the NIT, what are its chances of winning it all? Don Markus: I know from a standpoint of trying to avenge a couple of disappointing losses, the Terps were probably looking forward to the chance of playing fellow ACC member Virginia for a third time. But as much as Maryland knowing intimately how to attack the Cavaliers, Virginia probably had the advantage since it won both regular -season games.
