So where do all the accusations and counter-accusations between sports agent  Joel Bell and basketball player Michael Beasley leave Maryland assistant coach Dalonte Hill? Does it change anything for Hill at all? I'm told Maryland has been pleased with Hill and continues  to feel that way. You all know by now that Beasley has accused Bell in a civil action of teaming with Curtis Malone  -- co-founder of the DC Assault summer  basketball program - to ultimately secure for  Bell the right to represent Beasley.

Baltimore Sun reporters Don Markus and Jeff Barker and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on three of the biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. What impact will the Maryland coaching moves involving Juan Dixon and Dustin Clark have on the team's on-court success? Don Markus: It's an unusual time to make changes on a coaching staff, but Mark Turgeon had no choice after Dalonte Hill was charged with drunk driving last month for the second time in less than two years.

Long before he began recruiting future NBA No. 2 draft pick Michael Beasley for Kansas State, Dalonte Hill said he grasped something important about the player's personality. Beasley, Hill noticed, wasn't responding well to college coaches' incessant pitches — to all the phone calls and letters certain to find their way to young basketball prodigies such as Beasley. "People didn't know this about his recruitment, but if you pressure him, he goes into a shell," said Hill, a former coach in the D.C. Assault summer-league program in which Beasley starred.

Maryland assistant men's basketball coach Dalonte Hill, who was charged with driving while impaired by alcohol in January, has settled his case. On Wednesday, Hill received probation before judgment -- which is not considered a criminal conviction. Hill was fined $500 for the incident. Maryland suspended Hill for two games after his January arrest. According to the police report, he was spotted “driving erratically” while making “abrupt and unsafe” stops and starts. It was Hill's second DUI, and his first since returning to his home state after a successful tenure at Kansas State.

1 Can't forget: the Motor City: As in the Motor City Bowl between Central Michigan and Florida Atlantic (7:30 p.m., ESPN). Not that there are too many bowl games. 2 The old 1-2: The NBA's top two draft picks - the Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose and the Miami Heat's Michael Beasley (left) - meet in an ESPN game at 5 p.m. 3 An easier way?: The Washington Capitals host the Buffalo Sabres (7 p.m., Comcast SportsNet), and maybe this time the Caps won't spot the other team four goals before deciding to come back.

Enough already Shandel Richardson Sun Sentinel Heat coach Erik Spoelstra has been asked this question all season. When responding, he always gives the same answer: "I think we have enough. " Spoelstra should quit thinking and just say the Heat has enough. The question has resurfaced because Miami has lost four straight games. Never mind the Heat won 21 of the previous 22. This is the Heat, where every stretch of the season is analyzed like college football by fans and media.

Until he arrived at Maryland as one of Mark Turgeon's assistant coaches, this is what I knew about Dalonte Hill: --That Hill had coached AAU ball, was tight with Michael Beasley and that Beasley followed him all the way to Kansas State. Beasley is now involved in a legal battle with sports agent Joel Bell. --That Hill got a really big salary. I profiled Hill in a story for today's paper to try to fill in a few knowledge gaps - for you and for myself. Here's what interests me about Hill: * He's unapologetic about his abundant summer-league contacts.

'D' as in Dwight Howard Brian Schmitz Orlando Sentinel The official polls and Hubble telescopes identified Kevin Durant as the speck who finished second to LeBron James in the MVP, ahem, race. As if getting lapped by LeBron isn't humbling enough, I still don't classify Durant as the league's second-best player this season. In the spirit of full disclosure, I voted this way: 1. James 2. Dwight Howard 3. Kobe Bryant 4. Durant 5. Steve Nash. I'll go with Howard, as provincial as it sounds.
