St. Frances linebacker Nnamdi Egbuaba committed to Maryland on Sunday morning, his coach said Sunday night, capping a short-lived college recruitment that began when the senior was offered last week. “He's just a type of kid that you would want in your program,” St. Frances coach Messay Hailemariam said. “Not only is he unbelievable on the field, but he's a better person off the field in terms of his high character, his work ethic and his ability and desires to want to succeed.” Egbuaba, 6 feet 1 and 216 pounds, had 19 sacks, 17 tackles for loss and 105 total tackles for St. Frances last season.

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.

Poly senior guard John Crosby didn't have one of his better shooting nights Wednesday at No. 1 St. Frances, but that wasn't going to stop him in the closing seconds with the game in the balance. With the No. 8 Engineers trailing by one point, the ball was in his hands with 30 seconds left. Crosby held the ball for the first 10, then started to the basket before pulling up just behind the foul line to hit a game-winning basket he would never forget. The Engineers had to make one final stop with St Frances getting one last shot up before the visitors secured a 52-51 win over the Panthers in a battle of undefeated teams.

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.
