Glen Miller did more than lose games at Penn. He struck the wrong chord with fans and alumni from the day he was hired because he had no previous connections to the Ivy League school. When losses piled up and attendance dipped at the famed Palestra, Miller was on his way out. Pennsylvania fired Miller on Monday after the Quakers dropped their first seven games, a rare early-season coaching change for a program that not long ago was a regular in the NCAA tournament. "This is not simply about the performance of the team this year," athletic director Steve Bilsky said.

Antonio Barton had only a handful of Division I basketball programs interested in him three years ago coming out Notre Dame Prep in Massachusetts, where he spent a post-grad year after playing his senior season at Lake Clifton. When Barton announced his intentions to leave Memphis last month and finish his college career elsewhere, the 6-2 point guard from Baltimore said that some two dozen schools contacted him about transferring. Barton, who reportedly has narrowed his list down to four schools, said last week that he expects to make his decision Sunday.

It is no secret that Maryland coach Mark Turgeon has a need for an experienced point guard  next season. With the recent departure of rising senior Pe'Shon Howard, the Terps have four scholarships available. It is also no secret that former Lake Clifton point guard Antonio Barton is looking for a place to finish his college career. Barton received his release from Memphis this week, has a year of eligibility remaining and will be available to play right away as long as he gets his degree from the school this summer.

Antonio Barton's trip home to Baltimore in a couple of weeks will center around the birthday party for his daughter, Skyy, who is turning 4. The visit will also include a meeting with Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon, Barton said in a phone interview Monday. Barton, who received his release from Memphis after playing for the Tigers the past three seasons, said the Terps are among two dozen teams that have contacted him. And Barton acknowledged that Maryland is among a much shorter list of serious contenders.

Antonio Barton has been on his own before. Just three years ago, the East Baltimore native suited up for Notre Dame Prep in Fitchburg, Mass., while older brother Will starred for Brewster Academy in New Hampshire. But the 2009-10 school year was an aberration for the Barton brothers. From City to National Christian Academy to Lake Clifton, Will and Antonio were inseparable. That relationship continued at Memphis, where the former Lakers stars guided the Tigers to back-to-back Conference USA tournament championships.

  Baltimore Sun reporter Don Markus, intern and Diamondback co-sports editor Josh Vitale, and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. Should Mark Turgeon go after Antonio Barton to play point guard next season for the Terps? Don Markus: Having already written that Pe'Shon Howard might have been a suitable stop-gap before Roddy Peters is ready to take over at the point, I think it is fair to say that Barton would be a more than suitable replacement as Maryland's transition point guard going into the 2013-14 season.

The immediate college eligibility of two former Baltimore high school basketball stars is under scrutiny by the NCAA. Will Barton and Josh Selby, both of whom were Baltimore Sun All-Metro Player of the Year selections at Lake Clifton, are awaiting rulings from the NCAA that could affect whether they start their respective careers this season at Memphis and Kansas. The issue involving Barton has to do with when he graduated from high school, while Selby's case is focused on his relationship with a professional agent.

Will Barton has heard all about his perceived detractors: He's too skinny, too unorthodox and too undisciplined. But Thursday night, he was an NBA draft pick. It may have taken longer than he'd hoped, but Barton - a swingman out of Memphis - went at No. 40 to the Portland Trail Blazers. He will join All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge on a team that finished a disappointing 28-38 last season, missing the playoffs for the first time in three years. Four picks later, guard Kim English, a Baltimore native who played at Randallstown and then Missouri, was drafted by the Detroit Pistons with the 44th overall pick in the second round.
