Georgetown to wear special camouflage uniforms

On Friday Georgetown will face the Florida Gators on-board the deck of the U.S.S. Bataan in Jacksonville, Fl.

The game comes during a full-day celebration that combines the opening day of the college basketball season and honoring military veterans in advance of Veteran's Day next Monday.

In that theme, the Hoyas will wear special camouflage uniforms. The jerseys and shorts will maintain the Hoyas normal grey and blue color scheme with a camouflage pattern embedded in the material. For more pictures and information check out Casual Hoya. Last month the Hoyas unveiled new uniforms for the 2012-2013 season. 

The Gators come into the game ranked No. 10 in the AP Preseason Top 25 rankings while the Hoyas enter the season unranked. The game is scheduled to tip-off at 9 p.m. and will be shown live on the NBC Sports Network.

Rayshad Lewis, son of Ray Lewis, to transfer and play football at Maryland

For almost two decades, Ray Lewis was one of the main attractions when it came to football in Maryland. Now, another Lewis will have the chance to make a name for himself in the Old Line State.

Rayshad Lewis, Ray's son, announced Monday on his Twitter that he'll be transferring to College Park to play for the Terps. He'll be able to debut for DJ Durkin's team in 2018 after sitting out next season.

As a true freshman at Utah State last year, Lewis had nearly 500 receiving yards on 40 catches. Eight of those grabs went for 20-plus yards, and he found the end zone twice for the Aggies.

According to Don Markus of the Baltimore Sun, Maryland basketball legend Juan Dixon will be named the head coach at Coppin State, his first men's head coaching job.

After his playing career wound down after stints in the NBA and Europe, Dixon joined Mark Turgeon's staff in College Park but was not retained after the 2015-16 season. 

For 2016-17, Dixon took over the UDC women's basketball coaching job finishing with a 3-25 record, but only had nine scholarship athletes. 

Dixon will take over a struggling Coppin State program that has only won 25 games in the past three seasons and hasn't finished with a winning record in the MEAC since 2011-12.

Coppin State became only the third No. 15 seed to top a No. 2 seed in 1997, but have only made the NCAA tournament one time since then (2008). Dixon will look to return Coppin State to the success it had during the 1990's.
