The Maryland women's basketball team recently landed one of the most inexperienced players in the country. That's not a bad thing, though - it's her potential and her pedigree that caught their eyes. Aja Ellison, the daughter of former NBA player Pervis Ellison and former Maryland sprinter Timi Crawford, committed to the Terps on Sunday. Ellison has only been playing organized basketball since 2010, but has shown huge improvement and plenty of collegiate potential. “She obviously has the genes - athleticism never was an issue,” said Ron Kessler, Ellison's basketball coach at Life Center Academy in Burlington, N.J. “We just worked on her skill set, fine tuning her ability with a basketball on the court.

How far has Pervis Ellison come in his three NBA seasons?Consider this: Near the end of his frustrating, injury-filled rookie season in Sacramento, two of the Kings assistant coaches left him stranded on the highway after his car broke down on the way to a home game.Today, the Washington Bullets regard the 6-foot-10 center as the cornerstone in their massive rebuilding plans.Labeled a king-sized bust in Sacramento after being the first player selected in the 1989 NBA draft, Ellison began to show his true potential last season by averaging 20 points and 11.2 rebounds, almost doubling his production his first season with the Bullets.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W. Va. -- After calling the start of his fifth training camp the best in terms of overall conditioning by his players, Washington Bullets coach Wes Unseld pointedly criticized centers William Bedford and Pervis Ellison and guard Rex Chapman for not reporting in the best of shape.Bedford, the 7-foot-1 center with the troubled past, has missed two of the three practices since he was acquired by the Bullets from the Los Angeles Clippers Thursday along with rookie forward Don MacLean in exchange for John Williams.

The Washington Bullets, featuring five new players on their roster this season as evidence of a major rebuilding job, still are missing the cornerstones of a winning foundation.The Bullets still have a bona fide center and playmaker at the top of their Christmas wish list.On the basis of record alone, the Bullets (7-15) are off to a worse start than last season, when they were 11-11 at this point. They finished the season 31-51, beginning a long slide after the loss of all-purpose forward John Williams, who underwent knee surgery Dec. 4, 1989.

LANDOVER -- Washington Bullets center Pervis Ellison last night shrugged off a published report that the condition of his knees -- which were operated on in May -- could force the end of his career.The report, in yesterday's Washington Times, quoted Dr. Lonnie Paulos as saying that Ellison's knees are similar to what "many NBA basketball players have by the end of their career. . . . He's just worn them out playing basketball."Reached after last night's game,Ellison said: "It's a situation where there's an upside on the surgery on some people and a downside on others.

SALT LAKE CITY -- With his body slumped backward while seated on a chair, Pervis Ellison resembled a boxer after a grueling, 12-round fight.Some of his Washington Bullets teammates had showered, dressed and headed for the team bus after Monday's loss in Seattle. Ellison didn't -- or couldn't -- budge."I didn't feel a rhythm. I didn't feel comfortable," Ellison said. "I'm just looking forward to Wednesday."That's tonight, against the Utah Jazz in Game 2 of Ellison's return. After starting the season on the injured list while he recovered from surgery on both knees, Ellison played 26 minutes and got four points and seven rebounds in his season debut.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Considering how poorly the Washington Bullets shot in the second half last night, it figures Pervis Ellison couldn't connect when he tried to punch Rik Smits.Ellison tried to get at Smits during a fourth-quarter altercation, but, like the Bullets, the 6-foot-10 center couldn't hit his target. The team and Ellison left Market Square Arena after a 116-96 defeat before a crowd of 10,008."Right now I'm out of answers," said Bullets coach Wes Unseld. "I'm frustrated with losing, but the season has a long way to go."

After suffering through more than three-quarters of the season and 42 losses, Washington Bullets coach Wes Unseld finally is getting to watch the type team he envisioned while making plans in training camp last October.Indeed, it was only a two-game winning streak the Bullets put to- gether last weekend when they beat two playoff-bound teams -- Atlanta and Philadelphia -- in games that went down to the buzzer.But the manner in which they accomplished the job, rallying to win both games, playing aggressive defense in crunch time and revitalizing a long dormant fast break, had to encourage Unseld about his team's future.

One of the few positive notes Saturday night as the Washington Bullets (2-6) suffered their third straight loss, 102-90 to the Boston Celtics, was the offensive performance of Pervis Ellison, who contributed 12 points in 26 minutes.That is a modest figure, but for Ellison, who had been tentative and ineffective offensively, it was a giant step forward.Through the team's first seven games, the 6-foot-10, 225-pound forward, acquired from the Sacramento Kings in June for Jeff Malone, had averaged only 4.3 points and shot just 31 percent from the field.
