The Washington Times’ 2012-13 college basketball previews
The 2012-13 NCAA basketball season begins Friday, Nov. 9, and The Washington Times has all you want to know about the local teams. Check out our preview content below.
Healthy Calvin Thompson hopes to be factor for Howard: Calvin Thompson thought he was fully recovered last year from ACL surgery that cost him nearly all of the 2010-11 season. (http://wtim.es/Z81neA) | Synopsis: (http://wtim.es/WHeINo)
Navy struggles, but at least it gets the point: While DeChellis plans to play his best available players, freshman Tilman Dunbar might be his optimal option at the point. Yes, he’s young. And yes, he’s a bit small (5-foot-10 and 153 pounds). Considering Navy is coming off a 3-26 season, it might not matter. (http://wtim.es/RBLfQL) | Synopsis: (http://wtim.es/S1rnDr)
For American’s Stephen Lumpkins, baseball didn’t fit like a glove: Stephen Lumpkins was willing to surrender a lot, and do it quickly, to chase a longtime dream. (http://wtim.es/SoB9Qk) | Synopsis: (http://wtim.es/Z7Y3QH)

Joe Harris rewards Tony Bennett’s faith, assumes role of leader at Virginia: Tony Bennett was only a few months removed from leaving Washington State to take over Virginia’s basketball program in 2009 when he reached out to a recruit he already knew well.

George Washington’s hot pursuit of Joe McDonald paid off: Before he got on with the business of his senior year in the Landon School’s backcourt, Joe McDonald had something else to occupy his time besides figuring out where he would play point guard at the college level. (http://wtim.es/RL5zh9) | Synopsis: (http://wtim.es/SPythk)
George Mason’s Paul Hewitt quick to make ‘32-4’ message point: History shows George Mason ended its last basketball season with a 10-point loss to Virginia Commonwealth in the CAA tournament. (http://wtim.es/XmZ3BZ) | Synopsis: (http://wtim.es/RHY6AL)
Georgetown’s Otto Porter won’t be stealth weapon: The tale surrounding Otto Porter’s arrival at Georgetown seems to have grown more florid with each passing day, to the point where one might believe the Hoyas magically unearthed a rebounding machine from the middle of nowhere and inserted him into the starting lineup of a Big East contender without anyone in the college basketball world knowing what hit them. (http://wtim.es/S1K5KZ) | Synopsis: (http://wtim.es/S1KahQ)
Nick Faust part of Maryland’s transformation: Nick Faust looks around the Maryland locker room, and there isn’t much familiar from his freshman season. (http://wtim.es/WI1HmP) | Synopsis: (http://wtim.es/RmP36Y)
SNYDER: Terrapins are right up there with the big boys: Last year, in the first game of Mark Turgeon’s first season at Maryland, he shook hands with counterpart Buzz Peterson of UNC Wilmington. (http://wtim.es/SPOowl)
