Graduation was fast approaching for Annapolis' Jourdan Stickler , but the 6-foot-4, 190-pound shooting guard entered this week with his post-high school plans completely up in the air. Several Division I programs expressed interest in Stickler during his first-team All-Metro senior season with the Panthers, but the wait for scholarship offers continued through the spring. “I don't know if surprised would be the right word, but definitely disappointed,” Stickler said about his lack of offers.

As a freshman in college, Jourdan Stickler played in a rural town for an infamously intense coach . When the former Annapolis star decided to leave Morehead State, he looked for the opposite. In Houston Baptist, Stickler - a former Baltimore Sun All-Metro first-team selection - found what he was looking for. “I was really impressed with the coaching staff,” said Stickler, who signed with the Huskies last month . “Particularly the fact that [the coaches] seemed laidback, in contrast to Morehead, where I had a coach that could be described as 'in your face.' … It's in the heart of Houston, so the city is all around it compared to Morehead, which was in a rural area.

For the first time in about a month-and-a-half, Brent Arrington got a good night's sleep. Since late May, Arrington has patiently waited for Mississippi Valley State to release him from his scholarship. His request was repeatedly denied, making what should have been a relaxing summer break an exceedingly stressful time for the Lansdowne grad. But last Friday, after his father spoke with someone from the NCAA and pleaded Arrington's case, the 6-foot-2, 182-pound guard was released from his scholarship.

When Juwan Newman rode the bench on an undefeated Lake Clifton team that featured three high-major players, he didn't complain. When the 6-foot-8, 215-pound power forward missed NCAA qualifying standards coming out of high school and prep school, he didn't stop working to improve his academics. And when the East Baltimore native moved across the country to attend junior colleges in New Mexico and Idaho, he didn't once think about retreating back home. “I knew I was never going to give up,” Newman said Sunday.

The beginning of Kareem Storey 's college basketball career was spent at a high-major program in the midst of a rebuilding project. With that experience in mind, the former Towson Catholic point guard focused on one factor in particular when he got a second chance at the recruiting process. “Historically, Morehead [State] is known for making the [NCAA] tournament,” said Storey, who signed with the Eagles last week. “There's nothing like tournament play. That basically was what I based my decision off of - being successful, winning games and going for the best opportunity I had to accomplish those goals.” In Storey, Morehead State landed one of the most coveted junior college point guards in the country.

Sean Woods hit a shot that was nearly one of the biggest in Kentucky basketball history, a high-arching bank off the backboard on a drive down the lane in the waning seconds to put the Wildcats ahead against defending national champion Duke in the 1992 East Regional final. Nearly, because after Mike Krzyzewski called a timeout at the Spectrum in Philadelphia, Christian Laettner hit what might be the single-most replayed shot in NCAA tournament history, an 18-foot turnaround that lifted the Blue Devils to the Final Four and ultimately to a second straight NCAA title.

Richmond assistant coach Jamal Brunt called Morehead State's second-round upset of fourth-seeded Louisville this year's "One Shining Moment" in the NCAA men's basketball tournament. With a win Friday night against top-seeded Kansas, Richmond, who knocked out Morehead State last weekend, could provide an even brighter one. The 12th-seeded Spiders, the lowest-seeded team remaining in the tournament, pulled off an upset of their own over fifth-seeded Vanderbilt in the second round before cruising to a 17-point win over Morehead State.

COLLEGE PARK - These were just the sorts of games that Maryland often struggled to put away last season - nonconference contests against smaller teams that couldn't seem to hold the Terps' interest until the final moments. Maryland missed 12 of its first 17 shots against Morehead State on Monday night - a beginning that seemed to foreshadow another uneven effort. But the Terps - propelled by the first Comcast Center points from transfer Dez Wells - seemed to come to life after that, using their superior size and depth to record a 67-45 victory in their home opener as part of the Barclays Center Classic.

The box score for Maryland's opening-game loss to Kentucky contained one gaudy, improbable number - 28. "I've never seen anything like it," Wildcats coach John Calipari said of the 28 offensive rebounds - 19 in the first half - the Terps collected in losing, 72-69, at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. Maryland (0-1) - which hosts Morehead State (1-0) on Monday night - shot 33 percent in the Kentucky game Friday night and were just 3-for-19 on 3-pointers. "Our shot selection was poor," coach Mark Turgeon said.
