GW stumbles at home to Mt. St. Marys

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sam Prescott scored 15 points, including four 3-pointers, to lead Mount St. Mary's to a 65-56 nonconference victory over George Washington on Monday night.

A 3-pointer by Prescott with 3:51 remaining gave the Mountaineers (2-3) a 58-54 lead and began a 6-0 run. Julian Norfleet followed with a layup after a steal by Rashad Whack.

Whack had four steals as the Colonials (2-3) turned the ball over 25 times to Mount St. Mary's 18.

George Washington led by four, 28-24, with 3:23 left in the first half, but the Mountaineers turned the margin around by scoring the last eight points of the half, including 3-pointers by Shivaughn Wiggins and Prescott.

Norfleet finished with 12 points and Wiggins 11 for the Mountaineers, who had lost 23 of their past 24 nonconference road games.

Lasan Kromah scored 18 for George Washington, and Isaiah Armwood had 15 points and 11 rebounds.

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.
