Dalonte Hill, a former assistant coach for Kansas State and, most recently, Maryland, was sentenced to seven days in jail and a year probation for a DUI that he received back in October.
He was an assistant coach with the Terps at the time and was forced to resign his position. The DUI was Hill’s second while with Maryland and his third since 2008.
Hill was making more than $300,000 on his initial contract with the Terps and made more than $400,000 as an assistant at Kansas State. He was known as a recruiter because of his connection to the DC Assault AAU program. He helped recruit the likes of Michael Beasley, Wally Judge and Rodney McGruder to Kansas State.
The DC Assault have since changed their name to the DC Premier after their founder, Curtis Malone, was arrested and charged with drug trafficking.
I’m on record saying that I would consider Marquette freshman Henry Ellenson if I had the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft, and while, at this point, I think that Brandon Ingram is probably going to end up going No. 2 — (Maybe No. 1???) — I still believe that Ellenson is going to be one of the best players from this draft class.
Well, just take a look at these highlights from the 26-point, 16-rebound performance he had in a win over Providence last night.
Then remember that Ellenson is 6-foot-11:
A solid poster dunk went down in the junior college ranks last night as Pensacola State sophomore Jamal Thomas finished a dunk through a block attempt against Northwest Florida State.
The 6-foot-3 Thomas used his power and momentum to go through the opposing shot blocker and the play made his head coach, Pete Pena, go nuts with an over-exaggerated fist pump. The video is short, but be sure to watch for Pena’s reaction near the logo at the top right of the screen.
