Katie Rutan, a 5-foot-8 shooting guard from Xavier, is transferring to Maryland, Terps coach Brenda Frese announced Thursday. Rutan played two seasons at Xavier, shooting nearly 40 percent from beyond the 3-point line. "Katie has a chance to bring something to our team that will fill a need — a pure shooter," Frese said. "She's the kind of player who loves to be in the gym getting shots up and always thinks she's going to make her next one. " She averaged nearly 8.0 points per game as a Musketeer and was an Atlantic-10 All-Rookie selection as a freshman.

Bishop O'Connell (Va.) boys basketball coach Joe Wootten had a simple message for his senior point guard after the Knights lost back-to-back games to league rivals DeMatha and St. John's (D.C.) in mid-February. With opponents focused on stopping Melo Trimble after he scored a school-record 47 points two days before losing to DeMatha, Wootten told the Maryland signee to start involving his teammates more in their offense. "Teams would just collapse in the paint on him when he drove, and we said to him, 'Melo, you've got to learn when to dump it off,' " Wootten recalled Wednesday.

COLUMBUS, Ohio  -- Maryland's point guard situation remains in flux after Wednesday's 76-60 loss to No. 5 Ohio State at Value City Arena. It will be interesting to see what Terps coach Mark Turgeon does going forward. Turgeon started Dez Wells at the point against the Buckeyes, but the 6-5 junior struggled mightily against Ohio State senior Aaron Craft, arguably the best on-the-ball defender in the country. Wells barely could get a shot off in the first 10 minutes, missed his first five and didn't score at all in the first 18 minutes.

Despite growing up a little more than an hour away from College Park, Devon Branch had never attended a Maryland basketball game. That changed last Friday when the 2008 Aberdeen grad took an unofficial visit to see the Terps take on Radford. “It was pretty fun,” said Branch, a sophomore shooting guard at Cloud County Community College in Concordia, Kan. “They had a nice atmosphere, especially for Christmas break with not a lot of students there. They had a pretty good crowd.” The Terps just recently started pursuing Branch, an All-Harford County player who missed NCAA qualifying standards coming out of high school and worked at a Holiday Inn in Aberdeen for a year before resurfacing at Cloud County.

Maryland remains in the mix for a top shooting guard target, and the Terps' stiffest competition appears to be the school where this player was originally committed. NBE Basketball Report caught up with Darrick Wood at the National Prep School Invitational, and the Washington native and Bridgton Academy guard discussed his updated list of schools . As it stands Wood still cites St. John's as the leader in his recruitment but is also mulling offers from Connecticut, Washington, Texas, Memphis, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Oregon State, Maryland, Georgetown, and Providence.

WASHINGTON - The NBA's hottest team has also become one of its most infirm. The Washington Wizards have won nine straight games, tying a franchise record, but have now lost shooting guard Richard Hamilton with a partially torn groin muscle. The injury to Hamilton, who could miss between three and four weeks, follows a broken left leg to power forward Christian Laettner. Hamilton suffered the injury in Friday night's win at Orlando and thought it was a badly pulled muscle. A magnetic resonance imaging test taken yesterday by team doctor Stephen Haas revealed the tear.

Less than two weeks ago, Calbert Cheaney found his space invaded by dozens of microphones and television cameras after a Washington Bullets loss. It wasn't necessarily Cheaney's fault that the Bullets lost to the Charlotte Hornets that night, but the starting shooting guards' point totals stood out: Glen Rice, 38; Cheaney, zero."

Coppin State is bracing for a few more weeks without senior small forward Michael Murray, who led the Eagles last season with 12.4 points and 8.9 rebounds per game but is out with a broken right (shooting) hand. But the team might be in good shape during Murray's absence. Sophomore shooting guard Sterling Smith scored a career-high 16 points in Friday's 83-64 loss to California, then had 21 points in Sunday's 78-73 win against Oregon State. Through the Eagles' first two games, the 6-foot-4 Smith is averaging 18.5 points and 5.5 rebounds and is shooting 63.6 percent from the floor and 58.3 percent from 3-point range.

Former Terps point guard Greivis Vasquez is headed from the New Orleans Pelicans to the Sacramento Kings in a three-player trade, USA Today reported Thursday. The Kings, Pelicans and Trail Blazers agreed orally on a deal that will send Vasquez to Sacramento, restricted free-agent guard Tyreke Evans to New Orleans and center Robin Lopez and guard Terrel Harris to Portland, according to two sources who spoke to the newspaper on the condition of anonymity because the trade can't be formalized until Wednesday.

Chris Turner had to know what Sunday's Charm City Challenge boys high school basketball all-star game held for him when he got into town Friday and saw the rosters of the local and U.S. teams. Turner was the second-shortest player on the U.S. squad, which meant he was going to spend most of his afternoon matched up on smaller and, in most cases, quicker guards, a formula that could have meant disaster because as Wilt Chamberlain once famously noted, "Nobody loves Goliath." At 6 feet 5, Turner is no Goliath.

Shooting guard Lionel Perkins had a good season for Bel Air last year, averaging 13.1 points per game, but he wanted to contribute more this season. So Perkins went to work, putting in tireless hours throughout the summer. The work paid off, as Perkins has improved to averaging 19.1 points per game and combines with top-scorer Donn Hill (20.1) in giving the Bobcats a tough duo to defend. Perkins is considering playing basketball at colleges such as McDaniel, Villa Julie and Salisbury, and wants to be a sports trainer.

The Washington Wizards insist they aren't wedded to any prospect for the third overall pick, and they remain at the mercy of what the Charlotte Bobcats decide to do ahead of them - whether it's take Kansas junior and Washington native Thomas Robinson or trade down to let another team possibly grab Florida shooting guard Bradley Beal. But the Wizards have three players they are strongly considering: the unassuming and sharpshooting Beal; the polished perimeter scorer Harrison Barnes of North Carolina; and the defensive-minded and grittyMichael Kidd-Gilchrist of Kentucky.
