The first Inter-Academic League showdown of the season between Germantown Academy and Penn Charter wasn't much of a contest. With four players scoring in double figures, Germantown Academy easily handled visiting Penn Charter, 76-59, yesterday afternoon. Sean Knitter, who scored 29 points, and Brett Storm, who had 20, accounted for all but 10 of the Little Quakers' points. "Everybody stepped up this game," said Matt Kauderer, who scored 15 points for Germantown Academy, which is 17-2 overall and 4-0 in the Inter-Ac.

Matt Walsh, a standout from the University of Florida and a Germantown Academy graduate, was not selected in last night's NBA draft. The 6-foot-6 shooting guard was not among the college, high school or foreign players chosen in the two-round draft, although many forecasters had the 22-year-old going among the 60 picks overall. Before the draft, ESPN.com had Walsh going somewhere between picks 29 and 50. The 27th pick seemed like a possibility as well, since Walsh had received positive feedback from the Utah Jazz, who owned that choice.

Matt Walsh likes to run. The Florida basketball team likes to run. Matt Walsh likes to hoist three-pointers. The Gators like to fire them up from beyond the three-point arc. The University of Florida seemed like a perfect fit for Walsh. So, the 6-foot-6 Germantown Academy junior basketball star made it official yesterday by accepting a full scholarship from a school that went 24-7 and made its third straight trip to the NCAA tournament this season. "They let their guards do their thing," Walsh said.

Matt Walsh, the University of Florida junior and Germantown Academy graduate, made it official yesterday. The 6-foot-6 shooting guard announced that he would stay in the NBA draft.

Underclassmen who have declared for the draft but haven't signed with an agent have until Tuesday to pull out. Walsh also announced that he had hired an agent, Jason Levian. In three seasons, Walsh, considered a solid perimeter shooter, scored 1,301 points.

Matt Walsh is likely one of the area's top snipers, and he learned a very important lesson this basketball season: Shoot off mouth with caution. Apparently feeling frisky after having grown 51/2 inches in a year, the 6-5, 170-pound Walsh, an impressive sophomore wing player for Germantown Academy, involved himself in a competition with senior sub Jim Slattery. "We had a bet," Walsh said, smiling, "on who would be first to dunk in a game. " The big moment came Feb. 4. One of them caught the ball beneath the basket, planted both feet, soared (a bit)

He was cooped up in an airport for five hours, and sometimes isn't sure which city he is in when he wakes up. But Matt Walsh, a 6-foot-6 shooting guard, isn't complaining about his recent travel itinerary. Walsh, a graduate of Germantown Academy, has been on a whirlwind tour, auditioning for NBA teams. He hopes one of them calls his name in the first round of next Tuesday's draft. Under the NBA's collective-bargaining agreement, which expires at the end of the month, first-round picks receive guaranteed three-year contracts.

ALMOST ALL football players favor some sort of pregame ritual. Fran Walsh's is ever-present and is now in Year No. 5. Fans of Archbishop Wood's ever-mighty football program don't get to witness it, because the scene is the locker room. Walsh's teammates don't even get it hear it, because it features a silent prayer. The ending? Always the same. Every single time. "Dad, I know you're up there. I'm making you proud today. " Walsh, a 6-1, 240-pound senior, stars at center and defensive tackle for the Vikings, who will meet Edward Bok Tech for the Class AAA City Title on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Northeast High.

Guard Michael Wild mulled all kinds of options for continuing his education and basketball career in the three months after helping Roman Catholic High win a second consecutive Catholic League championship. He never pulled the trigger, however, and coach Dennis Seddon, frankly, was getting more than a little frustrated. Then, boom, Wild entered into a whirlwind love affair with Division I Elon College, in North Carolina, and made a commitment last week. "Elon knew about me from way back when North Carolina was recruiting Eddie Griffin," Wild said, referring to the former Roman superstar now at Seton Hall.

Go pro or go to college? Declare for the draft or declare a major? What about injuries, agents and the Olympics? Thousands of high school students graduate this month, and thousands more underclassmen are beginning to consider colleges and careers. For the brightest of blue-chip student-athletes, there can be more choices and more pressure - more people, places and things to consider. Parents are an integral part of the process. They have opinions and ideas, and hopes and dreams.

After watching Matt Walsh torch his team for 32 points in a nonleague game in December, Friends' Central coach Keino Terrell came away with a deeper appreciation for the senior's talents. "His ability to shoot the ball was a given," Terrell said. "I was more impressed with his ability to handle the ball and be a playmaker. Also, you could see he made the players around him better. " Walsh, a sharp-shooting, 6-foot-6 wing guard from Germantown Academy in Fort Washington, is The Inquirer's area boys' basketball player of the year.

Matt Walsh says he did not mind playing with a bull's-eye on his chest as he did countless times while competing for Germantown Academy's high-powered basketball squad. In fact, he relished the challenge. "Most teams had nothing to lose, and they came at us with everything they had," Walsh said. "We would get the other team's best game, so we always had to play at a high level. That's how we wanted it, though. We wouldn't have wanted it any other way. " Walsh, a 6-foot-6 wing guard who led the Patriots to a 23-7 record and their third straight Inter-Academic League championship, is The Inquirer's suburban boys' basketball player of the year.
