Wednesday was a busy day for newly hired University of Maryland men's basketball head coach Mark Turgeon. Alongside assistant coaches Bino Ranson and Dalonte Hill, the former Texas A&M and Wichita State head coach attended the Adidas Invitational in Indianapolis with hopes of landing several different 2012 and 2013 recruits. SB Nation's Maryland blog Testudo Times has a full report.
The marquee match-up of the day was between the D.C. Assault and the Houston Defenders. DCA boasts prized 2013 recruit Nate Britt, the Gonzaga College product whose name has been linked to Georgetown, Villanova, Virginia and Virginia Tech, among other big-conference schools.
Houston has several possible recruits as well, including Shaquille Cleare, Derrick Griffin and Andrew and Aaron Harrison, who are identical twins.
As the game wore on, the point guard match-up between Britt and Andrew Harrison got increasingly physical, to the point that both players received technical fouls at one point. After the game, Harrison told reporters that "of course" he thinks he's better than Britt.
That would be good news for the Terps, who are after him and his brother.
