MSJ Pulls Away From St. Frances


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.

St. Frances Rallies Past MSJ


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.

It was not without ups and downs.

2013-14 Preview: Preseason Baltimore All-Metro Selections


As we continue with our preseason coverage on DMVelite, we are excited to release our DMVelite Preseason Baltimore All-Metro selections.

These selections proved to be difficult, as the Baltimore area appears very open in terms of headline teams and players heading into the season. 

With that in mind, an “Others Considered” section was added below the Honorable Mention section to include several additional other players worth mentioning.

2014 Positional Rankings: Combo Guards (Pre-July)

As we approach the July "Live" evaluation period (beginning July 10th), we take another look at our DMVelite Player Rankings.

This week, we will release position-by-position rankings for the 2014 and 2015 classes.

We released our overall Top 50 rankings for the Class of 2014 in April and will expand that list into a Top 100 after the AAU season has come to a close.

Today, the Top 20 combo guards in the Class of 2014 heading into July are ranked.

DMVelite Rankings: 2014 Top 50


RELATED: DMVelite 100 - Class of 2013 Rankings

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.

DMVelite Maryland All-State Team


As we continue to wrap up the 2012-13 high school basketball season on DMVelite, we move onto our All-State selections for Maryland.

RELATED: 2013 All-DMVelite Team -- All Northern Va. Team -- All-DC Team

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).
