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.

Just like last season at this time, the UMBC men's basketball team is looking at a potential must-win situation following a 54-52 loss to Fairleigh Dickinson last night at the Retriever Activities Center. But while a Northeast Conference regular-season title was on the line in last year's finale, this time the Retrievers (11-16, 7-10) must beat Monmouth tomorrow -- or hope for a Wagner loss to second-place Quinnipiac -- in order to reach next weekend's NEC tournament in Trenton, N.J.. Fairleigh Dickinson's LaMarque Ward moved past Terence Ward on the right side -- after some debatable footwork -- and hit a bank shot from about 10 feet that decided the game with 1.5 seconds left.

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.

COLLEGE PARK -- Less than 12 hours before boarding a plane to travel cross country and face one of the top programs in the nation, the Maryland men's basketball team first had to put Fairleigh Dickinson behind it last night in the season opener. It took about eight minutes. After an up and down start in which Maryland trailed three times, the Terps finally got into sync and cruised to a 111-85 win before a crowd of 17,950 at Comcast Center. Mike Jones came off the bench and scored a team-high 22 points, and Chris McCray and Nik Caner-Medley each chipped in 18. In all, six players reached double digits for the Terps.
