The fundraiser will raise money for a a local boy who needs an assistance dog.
The Harlem Wizards will be coming to Westminster on Feb. 2 to dribble, shoot and dunk their way past a team of local players -- all to raise money for an assistance dog for a local boy. Wendy Boag said she invited the Harlem Wizards to come play a game at McDaniel College as a way to raise money for her son's assistance dog. "They are like the 'Harlem Globetrotters,' but on more of a community-type scale," Boag said. "They do all of the same types of tricks as the Globe Trotters, but are more interactive with the kids in the audience, like inviting them all onto the court for half time fun." According to the fundraising website, www.buddyfund.net, assistance dogs can help children with disorders like anxiety, OCD, ADHD and Sensory …

Do you remember watching Juan Dixon play for the Terps?
Saturday, November 17, 2012
By CONNOR LETOURNEAU Capital News Service Juan Dixon couldn’t help but feel a bit nostalgic as he sat in a red Comcast Center seat late last month. The Terrapins men’s basketball icon had spent the past 20 minutes discussing life after College Park. He had touched upon a failed drug test, the ups and downs of playing abroad and the NBA comeback attempt that ultimately landed him alongside the newest generation of Terps. Then he paused. A slight smile began to form on the 34-year-old shooting guard’s face as he glanced at the rafters above him. “That’s possible,” Dixon said as he pointed at the 2002 national championship banner. “The reality is, not everybody can make it to the NBA. But that banner, that’s possible. Everybody on the team…

Coaches, athletes and students covered their green and gold with pink to raise awareness about breast cancer.
This past Saturday, McDaniel's Gill Center was a sea of vibrant shades of pink. It wasn't a Valentine's Day Dance, it wasn't a spring flower sale. It was a Green Terror Ladies basketball game. The McDaniel Women’s Basketball Team hyped up the crowd when they spilled onto the court for warm ups sporting knee-high pink socks, which matched ever- so-perfectly with their gold and green jerseys (not). They were in the zone—the Pink Zone, that is. The Women’s Basketball Coaches Association created the Pink Zone initiative in 2007 to raise awareness about breast cancer on the court, at the college, and in the community. The initiative was heavily influenced by the late head coach of North Carolina State University’s women’s basketball team, …
