Redskins Rehash–setting up a spectacular showdown….

On the Path to Greatness

Every year the clubhouse manager for the Trenton Thunder, Tom “Tonto” Kackley holds a memorabilia auction to benefit The Domestic Violence Project. Items include autographed hats, bats, and balls from a range of minor and major league players and others including Ozzie Guillen and Brian Cashman. There are also some more unique items including an autographed All-Star jersey and game used catching gear (signed by the catcher who wore it, of course). For you football fans there’s also a Mark Sanchez autographed football. 100% of the proceeds go to the Domestic Violence Project so go bid and help others while doing a little holiday shopping for yourself! I love when people do good through sports so leave a comment if you’re involved in any other organizations/events that fit this description!

Fear The Turgeon

Despite beating decent teams  like Northwestern and George Mason, Maryland still finds itself on the outside of the Associated Press Top 25 poll which was released on Monday afternoon.

The Terps did receive nine votes in the poll which features three ACC teams. Duke (#2), North Carolina (#20), and NC State (#25) all made the list.

Among teams outside the Top 25, Virginia Tech received the second-highest number of votes with 170. Kentucky received the most with 186 but were absent from the poll for the first time under the reign of John Calipari.

It looks as though Maryland will have to wait until they win a few ACC games before they can crack the Top 25. If it’s any consolation, former Virginia Tech coach and ESPN analyst Seth Greenberg had the Terps at #17.

Fear The Turgeon

According to DMVelite.com’s Marcus Helton, Suitland guard and Maryland commit Roddy Peters announced that he is going to have season-ending shoulder surgery.

It would’ve been fun to see what Peters would do for Suitland throughout the season but it’s better to be safe and not risk doing any further damage to his shoulder.

We’ll just have to hope that Peters is ready for summer practice at Maryland.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Winless and short-handed, Maryland-Eastern Shore couldn’t keep up with one of the nation’s top teams.

Point guard Cashmere Wright set a career high with six 3s, and Sean Kilpatrick scored 19 of his 23 points in the first half Saturday, keeping No. 11 Cincinnati unbeaten with a 92-60 victory over the Hawks.

The Bearcats (9-0) have opened the season with nine wins for the 10th time in school history. They also did it in during the 2010-11 season, winning their first 15 games.

Cincinnati dominated every aspect, including rebounds, where it had a 55-31 advantage.

“They killed us on the boards with their size, their strength, their athleticism,” Maryland-Eastern Shore coach Frankie Allen said. “We were playing really short-handed. We only had seven or eight guys available to even play.”

Kyree Jones led the Hawks (0-9) with 25 points. The Hawks shot 29.9 percent from the field.

NEW YORK — A person familiar with the decision says the NHL has canceled all games through Dec. 30.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the official announcement isn’t expected to be made until later Monday afternoon. There had already been 422 regular-season games lost because of the ongoing lockout, and the latest cuts will claim 104 more. The NHL also has canceled the New Year’s Day Winter Classic and the All-Star game.

The cancellation of just 16 more days of the season could perhaps signal there is hope of a deal to begin play in early January. Negotiations between the league and the players’ association broke off last week, but NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said on Sunday that the sides are trying to restart talks this week.
