Washington has been in the basketball spotlight for weeks. Kevin Durant shone at NBA All-Star Weekend. His former AAU teammate Ty Lawson is doing his thing at North Carolina. Dick Vitale mentioned the Nation’s Capital on ESPN’s Sports Center a week ago. And last night, high school powers Oak Hill and Montrose Christian battled it out before a national ESPN audience. Tonight is ladies’ night- Lady Terps, that is. St. John’s grad Marissa Coleman led Maryland to a 95-84 win over #4 North Carolina.
She scored 29 points.
