Casual basketball followers in Baltimore City might not remember Daishon Knight . The 6-foot-1, 188-pound combo guard didn't play for Lake Clifton during his senior year of high school in 2010, and he never suited up for a local AAU team either. But starting this fall, hoops fans from this area will get a chance to follow Knight's progress on a bigger stage when he takes the court for Illinois State. Knight, a West Baltimore native, signed his letter of intent to play for the Redbirds last week.
