Still a lot going on, even in the offseason…
[b]Charlotte Latin's Charles Dewhurst has received scholarship offers from Charlotte and South Carolina, coach Jerry Faulkner said. Dewhurst, a 6-foot-5 junior, averaged 20.6 points and 9.4 rebounds.[/b]Charlotte.com: [url=http://www.charlotte.com/mld/charlotte/sports/high_school/11458608.htm]Prep Sports[/url]
[b]Brian Gregory didn't mince words:
“I’ve got a great job right now and I’m excited about what we’re building. Before the DePaul talk goes any farther, I want to make it clear. I’m where I want to be.”
He was talking about the University of Dayton — where he’s been the head basketball coach the past two seasons — and not so much about Saturday’s recruiting trip to Fayetteville, Ark., where he’d spent the entire day in a gym watching one game after another at an AAU tournament.[/b]

[b]MERRITT STATUS: Guard Daon Merritt may have played his final game for the Spiders.
Merritt, a sophomore, was charged with assaulting a 20-year-old woman during an on-campus incident Wednesday night. He was arraigned Friday in Richmond General District court on a charge of assault and battery. UR suspended Merritt indefinitely from the basketball program, and coach Jerry Wainwright said he won’t comment on the matter until it is resolved. Merritt remains enrolled at UR.[/b]

[b]Richmond coach Jerry Wainwright also was on his school's campus Wednesday, yet his name has emerged as another possibility to fill the DePaul vacancy. A school official said Wednesday that, to his knowledge, DePaul has not contacted Wainwright, but his profile makes him a natural candidate.
He is a Berwyn native who coached at East Leyden and Highland Park in the late 1970s and early 1980s, which makes him familiar with the area. He is 58, which means he would be virtually certain to stay to the end of his career and not scurry off after three years.[/b]
