To Stony Brook fans, Tommy Brenton is an irreplaceable forward almost maniacally obsessed with winning. To supporters of other America East schools, Brenton's like an 80's-era pro wrestling heel, relishing their taunting signage and thriving on their verbal barbs. And to at least one former assistant coach in the conference, Brenton is simply "a pain in the a--" to play against. “I think that's a great sign of respect if they hate playing against me, but [would] love having me on their team,” said Brenton, the reigning America East Defensive Player of the Year.

Tommy Brenton, a former River Hill star who finished his career at Stony Brook this spring, has signed a pro contract with Link Togichi Brex, a team based in the Tochigi Prefecture in Japan, approximately 80 miles outside of Tokyo. Brenton, the 2013 Lefty Driesell National Defensive Player of the Year, was also honored his senior year as the America East Player of the Year and the conference's top defensive player. "Tommy made an impact on the Stony Brook men's basketball program like no other student-athlete, and it excites me to now call him a professional basketball player," Stony Brook coach Steve Pikiell said in a news release.

Tommy Brenton acknowledges he felt nervous the last time he took the floor at Comcast Center. It was the spring of 2007, and the senior forward had led his River Hill basketball team to the Class 3A state championship game. With a Maryland grad and "big Terps basketball fan" for a father, Brenton grew up dreaming of the day he'd play on the same court where he watched Gary Williams-coached teams grind out victories. On Friday, more than five-and-a-half years after leading the Hawks to their first boys basketball state title, Brenton will make his long-awaited return to Comcast Center, only this time the anxiety of a high school senior will be replaced by the confidence of a 23-year-old graduate student.

When he was a freshman point guard for River Hill's junior varsity team, Tommy Brenton never imagined how much of a hassle it would be to simply get into a small car. For the 6-foot-4 do-everything senior, a first-team All-County selection last season, it's now a process: Anybody in the back seat has to slide over and the front seat moves all the way back. "It's tough. I'm not liking some of the small cars my friends drive," said a smiling Brenton, who grew 7 inches since the days when he was a 5-foot-9 ninth-grader.

PLAYER OF THE YEAR Tommy Brenton River Hill The versatile, 6-foot-4 senior guard-forward capped an outstanding season with 28 points and 10 rebounds to lead the No. 9 Hawks (23-5) to their first state championship with a 60-51 win over Bethesda-Chevy Chase in the Class 3A title game. Whatever the Hawks needed, Brenton, a team captain, supplied, as he finished the season averaging 20.9 points, 10.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.3 steals. He was continually at his best in the season's biggest moments, as evidenced by his state-record 19-for-20 performance from the foul line in the title game.

Atholton's 34-point first-half in last night's Howard County boys basketball championship was a clear indicator: The No. 13 Raiders were playing on their terms this time against River Hill. With the hot-shooting first half backed up by the necessary responses in the second, the host Raiders earned the program's seventh county crown with a 70-62 win over the Hawks. Seniors Torey Fassett, Steve Lombardozzi and Sam Permutt combined to score 44 points, with junior Brett McQuilkin adding nine as the Raiders (20-3)

Mount Hebron first-year boys lacrosse coach Mike McCarthy wasn't quite sure what to expect early in the season, and it was easy to understand why. Consider that the defending state champion Vikings graduated 18 seniors - including All-Metro attackman Tommy Incontrera and seven of the team's top nine midfielders. But with goalkeeper Billy McNamara, midfielder Justin Martinelli and attackman Bobby Cooke - the team's senior captains - along with junior defenseman Brandon Wolven picking up the leadership slack and a young group stepping up, the Vikings are much further along than expected by McCarthy.

- In recent days, members of the Maryland men's basketball team have been absorbed with final exams, writing papers and - perhaps - allowing themselves to think ahead to holiday gifts and an upcoming break. Their coach, Mark Turgeon, has been contemplating all the distractions that make this such a difficult time of year to coach. It's not that Turgeon is some sort of holiday grinch. The coach is giving his players - who just completed eight days of finals - four days off around Christmas to recharge.

Welcome back to Morning Shootaround, a regular feature this season the day after Maryland basketball games. While we can't bring you into the Terps' locker room after games -- reporters haven't been allowed in there since the last couple of years under Gary Williams -- we will recap what was said in the news conference afterward by Maryland coach Mark Turgeon and his players. We will give some of our own insight into what transpired on the court during the previous night's game and what the Terps will be working on at practice looking ahead to their next game.

Stony Brook's evening began when the Seawolves were mistakenly introduced by the public address announcer at Comcast Center as the "Seahawks. " The reception was just as rude for the New York school when the game started and host Maryland converted its first five field-goal attempts, and 15 of its first 20. But the visitors were undeterred. The Terps had wanted a test and they got one, as Stony Brook cut a 20-point deficit to two in the final minute before Maryland prevailed, 76-69, before an announced 10,721.
