Gaels guard Morsell has Mary­land in his fi­nal three

Baltimore Sun - - NFL -

Mount Saint Joseph se­nior guard Darryl Morsell, one of the Bal­ti­more area’s top play­ers, nar­rowed his list of col­lege choices to three. Mary­land, Notre Dame and Day­ton made Morsell’s lat­est cut, while Vil­lanova and Vir­ginia Tech were elim­i­nated from con­sid­er­a­tion. The All-Metro first-team se­lec­tion has of­fi­cially vis­ited all three fi­nal­ists, mean­ing a de­ci­sion should come sooner rather than later. The Terps are con­sid­ered the fa­vorite, with all five “Crys­tal Ball” pre­dic­tions on pick­ing Mary­land. Morsell helped lead the Gaels to the Mary­land In­ter­scholas­tic Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion and Bal­ti­more Catholic League ti­tle games last sea­son, av­er­ag­ing 10.6 points, 5.1 re­bounds and 1.7 as­sists per game. He is con­sid­ered a four-star re­cruit and is the No. 114 over­all prospect in the 247Sports com­pos­ite rank­ings. NHL: Braden Holtby made 24 saves to lead the host Washington Cap­i­tals over the New York Is­lan­ders, 4-0, in a pre­sea­son game. An­dre Bu­rakovsky, Lars Eller, Alex Ovechkin and T.J. Oshie scored for the Cap­i­tals, and Ovechkin also had an as­sist. Ovechkin’s goal came on the power play and was his first this pre­sea­son since re­turn­ing from play­ing for Team Rus­sia in the World Cup of Hockey. De­fense­man Brooks Or­pik had two as­sists. COL­LEGE FOOT­BALL: Frost­burg State ju­nior wide re­ceiver-kick re­turner Rus­sell Never­don (Calvert Hall) was named New Jersey Ath­letic Con­fer­ence Spe­cial Teams Player of the Week. MEN’S COL­LEGE SOC­CER: Mid­field­ers Nick Tait and Juwan Kear­son (St. Paul’s) scored in the first half to lead St. Mary’s Col­lege of Mary­land (9-2-1, 3-1 Cap­i­tal Ath­letic Con­fer­ence) to a 2-0 win over Mary­mount (2-8-2, 0-4). WOMEN’S COL­LEGE SOC­CER: Penn State (9-2-3, 5-0-2 Big Ten Con­fer­ence) scored three goals off cor­ner kicks for a 3-0 vic­tory over host Mary­land (3-11-1, 1-6-0). … Saint Fran­cis (Pa.) (4-10, 2-10 North­east Con­fer­ence) scored in the eighth and 71st min­utes to earn a 2-0 vic­tory over vis­it­ing Mount St. Mary’s (4-7-1, 0-2). WOMEN’S COL­LEGE VOL­LEY­BALL: Fresh­man out­side hit­ter Gia Mi­lana had a ca­reer-high 21 kills, but vis­it­ing Mary­land (8-10, 0-6 Big Ten) fell to No. 21 Michigan State (15-3, 4-2) in four sets on Sat­ur­day night, 25-16, 22-25, 25-20, 25-17. —
