Friday marked a battle of the titans among Maryland high school basketball programs. Unfortunately, only one titan showed up. Top-ranked Aberdeen was out-run, out-defensed, and out-classed by Eleanor Roosevelt (7-0), 66-41, in the semifinals of the International Association of Approved Basketball Officials Christmas Tournament at Largo High School. Aberdeen played without starting point guard Kierra Palmer, and her absence forced coach Amber Milnes to move several players away from their natural positions.

Eleanor Roosevelt offensive lineman Isaiah Prince is likely still months away from making any formal decision on where he will play in college. He also remains interested in top schools like Alabama, Auburn and Florida State. But as it stands now, Roosevelt coach Tom Green believes Maryland is the top team on Prince's list. “We haven't had that conversation,” Green said in a phone interview. “But just from his comments and talking to him, I would think he would pick Maryland if he had to make a decision today.” Prince is rated as a four-star prospect by both ESPN and Rivals.com , and he's viewed by Rivals as the best prospect from Maryland for the Class of 2015.

WASHINGTON -- Moments before Hillary Rodham Clinton walked into a congressional hearing room to be grilled on health care reform in the fall of her first year in the White House, an aide whispered in her ear:"This is Eleanor Roosevelt time."And so it is again. As she moves about in the very public, not very policy oriented, role she has carved out for herself in the wake of the health care debacle, Mrs. Clinton is looking more and more Rooseveltian.She has made a number of foreign trips, as her predecessor did. She has moved from inside policy-maker to outside "advocate," as Mrs. Roosevelt did after encountering public scorn for her more direct involvement in government.

Shawn Petty is listed at 230 pounds, but he looked bigger than that as he took practice snaps in the end zone last week, dwarfing the other skill-position players standing around him. Petty - the converted freshman linebacker who will start at quarterback for the Terps against Georgia Tech on Saturday - seemed almost as wide as the center hiking him the ball during warmups before the Boston College game. He outweighs each of the four previous Maryland quarterbacks - all sidelined by season-ending injuries - by at least 25 pounds.

Eleanor Roosevelt football coach Tom Green has a simple philosophy when it comes to his future Division I players. “I don't think it's asking too much for a kid playing in the ACC to play both ways on the high school level,” Green said. Case in point: the high school career of Shawn Petty , a Maryland commitment who started at quarterback and linebacker for Green's Raiders. The 6-foot-3, 240-pound senior was the ultimate leader for Eleanor Roosevelt on offense and defense.
