VCU-bound Calhoun to play on ESPN2

VCU fans can watch one of the jewels of the Rams' incoming recruiting class, Camille Calhoun, go for a national championship when ESPN2 airs the National High School Invitational title game Saturday at 11 a.m. from Georgetown Prep in North Bethesda, Md.

Calhoun's team, Archbishop Spalding (Md.) will face Dr. Phillips (Fla.) in the final in a rematch of a 2011 NHSI semifinal game in which the Florida school prevailed.

Spalding (30-2) advanced in the four-team event by knocking off Dillard (Fla.) 60-51 in Friday's semifinals. The 5-11 Calhoun contributed 9 points and 10 rebounds in the victory. Dr. Phillips (30-3) followed with a 65-58 win over Life Center (N.J.).

Dr. Phillips is led by University of Georgia-bound point guard Sydnei McCaskill, who had 19 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists in the semifinals, and George Washington signee Hannah Schaible, who chipped in 16 points and 11 boards.

Calhoun is one of three Division I-bound performers for Spalding, along with forward Jade Schaife (UNC Greensboro) and forward Sierra Clark (St. Francis-Pa.).

The Washington Post has an excellent preview of Spalding's pursuit of the national title.

Calhoun is one of six recruits headed to VCU this fall. Others are Monnazjea Finney-Smith, a 6-1 guard from Portsmouth's Wilson High; Ashlee Mitchell, a 5-7 guard from Bristol, Tenn.; Keira Robinson, a 5-8 guard from Columbia, S.C.; Briana DuBose, a 5-10 guard from Bishop McNamara (Md.); and Isis Thorpe, a 5-8 guard from Reading, Pa.
