Top point guard recruit commits to USF

TAMPA — Dwan McMillan, a 6-foot point guard from Brooklyn who has spent the past two seasons at one of the nation's top prep schools, made an oral commitment to USF on Monday.

"I just felt like home when I came down there," said McMillan, who made an official campus visit over the weekend and said his decision was clinched when he had breakfast at coach Stan Heath's house Saturday morning. "The Big East is the best conference in the country, and I think I can help turn the program around a little bit. If we can get an inside presence, we can be in the upper half of the league."

McMillan, who had offers from Providence, St. John's, Cincinnati and Clemson as well, joins 6-foot-8, 295-pound power forward Gene Teague of Vineland, N.J., as USF's new commitments from visits over the weekend. They join power forward Eladio Espinosa, who signed in November, and guard Mike Mercer, a midyear transfer from Georgia, in the Bulls' incoming class. Heath still has three scholarships available for the spring signing period.

OHIO ST. 73, CAL 56: Jamar Butler scored 20 and spurred a 17-2 first-half run with three 3-pointers to lead the Buckeyes (21-13), who hosted the game at 52-year-old St. John Arena because their homecourt, Value City Arena, was hosting a Bruce Springsteen concert.

VA. TECH 75, UAB 49: A.D. Vassallo scored 18 for the host Hokies (21-13), who led by 10 three minutes into the game and were never challenged.

OLE MISS 85, NEB. 75, OT: Zach Graham scored 10 of his 14 in overtime for the host Rebels (23-10). The Cornhuskers forced overtime when Ade Dagunduro hit a layup with 39 seconds left.

DAYTON 55, ILL. ST. 48: The visiting Flyers went on a 17-0 second-half run to break open a close game. Brian Roberts led Dayton (23-10) with 16 points.
