All Earl Potts Jr. wanted was to find a Division I school where he could play basketball, study business and graphic design, and be relatively close to New York City for internship opportunities. In Fairleigh Dickinson, Potts found everything he was looking for. The former Archbishop Spalding star signed with the Knights this week. “[I feel] relieved,” Potts said Wednesday. “It's very good for my family. My family is really happy, so it's good.” "Earl is not only an incredible athlete, but he is very skilled and will add another dimension to our front court," FDU coach Greg Herenda said in a news release.

The way UMBC men's basketball coach Tom Sullivan sees it, if no one player or two is going to step up on a regular basis, he'll give everyone a chance. Last night, it was junior guard Justin Wilson's turn to take the lead role, with a strong supportive cast enabling the Retrievers to handle visiting Fairleigh Dickinson, 81-70, in front of 1,413 at RAC Arena. The Retrievers got a game-high 18 points and six steals from Wilson; 14 points from Will McClurkin and 10 each from Andrew Feeley and Malik Wallace in a favorable reponse after Saturday's heartbreaking 78-73 double-overtime loss to Monmouth.

Kareem Washington scored 19 of his 23 points in the second half for UMBC, which trailed for the first 35 minutes but held Fairleigh Dickinson to one field goal over the final 10 minutes.

Mike Owona was set to play basketball next year for a program transitioning to the Division I level. But after a coaching change, the John Carroll senior will instead suit up for an established DI team that has appeared in four NCAA tournaments. Owona committed Sunday to Fairleigh Dickinson, a Northeast Conference school located in Teaneck, N.J. “It feels pretty good,” Owona said. “I finally have it out of my mind. I feel good about it.” Owona had been committed to UMass-Lowell, a Division II powerhouse that will play its first season of DI competition during the 2013-14 season.
