BALTIMORE, Md. – Wednesday featured a highly-anticipated match up between Baltimore Catholic League rivals #9 St. Francis and #10 Mount St Joseph. The first half of the game was tightly contested, with neither team showing the ability to pull away. But, in the second, MSJ was able to put together runs to go up by as many as 20 points on the way to a 63-48 win.
BALTIMORE, MD - DMVelite’s Game of the Night lived up to its billing on Wednesday night, as it took overtime to decide the winner of #17 Calvert Hall vs #8 Mount St. Joseph. The Gaels, behind Jacksonville commit Jaylen Adams’ nine points in the extra period, ended up getting a big Baltimore Catholic League win on the road.
BALTIMORE - An early season game between two Baltimore Catholic rivals in a jam packed gym tends to favor the team with more experience. In last night’s game between No. 5 Mount St. Joseph and No. 7 St. Frances, however, youth prevailed as St. Frances got the 60-51 win in front of their home crowd.
WASHINGTON – The 2013 Nike Global Challenge took place at Trinity University last Thursday-Saturday, and attracted a host of top talent and college coaches.
The event featured five players with DMV ties, as Potomac guard Dion Wiley, St. Frances forward Dwayne Morgan and Mount St. Joseph guard Phil Booth played for the USA East team and Obi Enechionyia and Therence Mayimba suited up for the Pan Africa squad.
The DMVelite Top 50 for the Class of 2014 represents a ranking of the 50 premier juniors (rising seniors) throughout Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia.
This page includes the Top 50 and our "On The Radar" list of those players that earned consideration for Top 50 honors but did not quite make the cut. With the idea that this Top 50 will expand into a Top 100 in August (post-AAU), our list is comprehensive. With a considerably strong spring and summer performance, an "On The Radar" player can easily find himself in the Top 50.
As a result of the DMVelite-MDHoops merger in March, these teams encompass the entire state of Maryland, not just the schools in the Washington, D.C. metro area. Only players at high schools located in the state of Maryland are eligible for All-State honors (we will be releasing All-District teams for D.C. and All-Region for NoVa this week, as well).
