AKRON, Oh. (AP) - High school sensation LeBron James has finally made
the decision everyone has been waiting for.

James, a 6' 8'' senior at St. Vincent-St. Mary high school in Akron,
Ohio, is widely regarded as the nation's top basketball prospect.
ESPN2 has televised several of his high school basketball games, and
his dazzling style and raw talent has captivated the nation.

But one question remained: Where is LeBron James going to play college
basketball?  Early this morning, he answered this question when he
verbally committed to Maryland.

"This is the most important decision of my life so far," said James at
a press conference this morning.  "I wanted to make the decision that
least hindered the advancement of my basketball career.  I considered
many options, but decided that it is in my best interest to play
basketball at Maryland."

Maryland head coach Gary Williams was pleased with James's decision.
"We are very pleased that LeBron will be playing basketball here in
College Park.  The young man had a difficult decision to make, but I
thought we put the most on the table.  So I can't say I'm all that
surprised that he chose us."

Asked if James would start as a freshman, Williams replied, "LeBron
James will have the same opportunity to earn a starting role as any
other player.  He's an exceptional young man, and I'm sure he'll be up
to the challenge."

Damb.  I was *this* close to creating a fake AP article saying he was
committing to Duke.

Wrong. He's committed to I-AA... i.e. Clippers or Cavaliers.
