Florida Lands No 4 Player In Country Vernon Hargreaves

Florida coach Will Muschamp landed his highest ranked recruit in his short time as the Gators’ coach in Vernon Hargreaves III, the fourth-rated best player in the country.A five-star prospect, Hargreaves tweeted: “I can officially say I am committed to THE University of Florida ! #GoGators CHOMP CHOMP”.The 5-foot-11, 185-pound defensive back chose Florida over Clemson, Vanderbilt, Notre Dame and Miami.Hargreaves, who has already committed to play in the Under Armour All-America game in January, becomes the highest-ranked Florida commit. Seventeen of Florida’s 18 verbal commits are rated four-star prospects or higher, and 12 are listed on the ESPN 300.In his junior season, Hargreaves had 49 tackles, two interceptions and a sack on defense, while adding 13 receptions for 313 yards and three touchdowns for a Wharton program that finished the season with a record of 5-6 after advancing to the FHSAA Class 8A state playoffs in 2011.The son of Vernon Hargreaves, Jr., an assistant under Skip Holtz at South Florida, he gave his father’s school some consideration. At the same time, his sister, Karina, attends Florida, and she was definitely pro-Gator.                          “All day. Whenever she texts or calls me, it’s ‘come to Florida,’” Hargreaves said. “It’s funny, though.”                   Asked who recruited him harder, his dad or his older sister, Hargreaves answered without hesitation.“My sister, definitely,” he said.It also helped Florida that Hargreaves gained an affection for Florida assistant Travaris Robinson, who was in charge of recruiting him.“He’s a good guy, he’s funny, energetic and he’s telling me the truth about Florida,” Hargreaves said. “He’s not telling me lies – not saying I’m going to come in and start or anything crazy like that.”Although Hargreaves continues to be on pace to graduate from high school early, he revealed on Saturday afternoon that it was not certain he would actually enroll in college for the spring semester at this time. read more

Pacers Send Message to Heat We Wont Back Down

Before the champion Miami Heat faced the challenger Indiana Pacers Wednesday night, the teams engaged in a battle of verbiage that did not indicate they were chummy. And the action on the floor exemplified the advancing animosity between to the teams.LeBron James needed a cotton swab in his nose to keep playing in the fourth quarter after he was whacked in the face. Dwyane Wade spent the final minute of the game icing his right hamstring.Indiana center Roy Hibbert took an elbow to the face that left him so groggy he didn’t even remember getting hit. How’d he get it? James was called for a flagrant foul when he drove to the basket and sent the 7-foot-2, 290-pound Hibbert crashing to the ground. When Hibbert got up, he stumbled. Eventually he had to leave the court to change his blood-spattered jersey, but he refused to sit against the Heat.Wade and Lance Stephenson were assessed technical fouls over a shoving match. Stephenson was ejected midway through the fourth quarter after picking up his second technical for celebrating a basket.But that’s what the Heat extracted from the Pacers: pure emotion. The Pacers earned an 84-83 win in a physical game. In the process, they let it be known that they have the audacity necessary to challenge the Heat.“They’re the champs, they’re going to bring out the best in us,” said bruising forward David West, who made a 3-pointer with 50.2 seconds to go. “They bring out the best in anybody. I thought we just had enough fight.”There were potential fights all night, a display of bravado that Indiana believes is necessary against the champions. More than that, the Pacers played better, if only by a little bit, on a night when James was brilliant. The four-time MVP had 38 points on 9-for-15 shooting, eight rebounds, five assists. However, James and Wade each had six turnovers.Miami managed only one basket over the final 3 minutes, 23 seconds. James and Chris Bosh both missed late jumpers that would have given Miami the lead, the last an airball by Bosh from just right of the top of the key as time expired.“They’re a tough team, psychologically against most teams they have the edge,” West said. “They’ve got the best player in the game. Their pedigree, their entire organization, you understand what you’re going to get.”Evan Turner, a 25-year-old, replaced Stephenson in the lineup and made two strong plays down the stretch that pulled the Pacers back from a four-point deficit.“When I got back in, coach said, ‘Welcome to the rivalry,’ ”  Turner said. read more
