by Gary Adornato (MIAA Website- October 17th) Archbishop Spalding graduate Will Bowers officially begins his college basketball career tonight when he takes the floor with his University of Maryland teammates for Midnight Madness before what will be a full house at Maryland’s Comcast Center. Viewed as a “project,” when he signed with the Terps last winter, Bowers has been impressive in preseason scrimmages and some Maryland insiders believe the 7’-0” center will see significant time, in a reserve role, as a true freshman. Late last season, Bowers became a more aggressive scorer around the basket and displayed outstanding touch as a perimeter shooter. Maryland basketball coach Gary Williams loves big men that can shoot from the outside, because it forces his opponent to come out front to defend, creating more interior space for Maryland’s famed motion offense. Also attending Midnight Madness this evening will be Spalding senior sensation Rudy Gay. Gay, ranked among the nation’s top ten basketball recruits, is taking his official visit to College Park this weekend and has reportedly narrowed his choices down to Maryland and Connecticut. Gay, a 6’-8” forward with incredible leaping ability, may make an announcement regarding his college choice as early as next week.
There are no comments for this announcement.
