After taking weekend official visits, New Jersey products Elijah Carter and Desmond Hubert are still weighing their options as they move closer to decisions.

The 6-foot-2 Carter, a Willingboro, N.J., native, visited Oregon State this past weekend and watched the football team pound Cal, 35-7, on Homecoming Weekend.

"I had a great time," Carter said by text. "I really enjoyed the college life out there."

NEW YORK -- Malcolm Gilbert didn't score a single point during Sunday's 17-and-under Gold championship game at the Rumble in the Bronx at Fordham University.

But at 6 feet, 11 inches tall, Gilbert was a major factor in helping East Coast Elite down Andre Drummond and the Connecticut Basketball Club, 63-58, for the title.

Gilbert had five blocks on Drummond, the No. 1 recruit in the Class of 2012, in the first half and six total blocks in the game. He also finished with 9 rebounds -- 6 offensive, 3 defensive -- before fouling out with 54 seconds remaining.

Ryan Arcidiacono drove to the hoop for a reverse layup last Friday night at the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions in North Carolina when an opposing player undercut him and sent him flying to the floor.

"The kid shoved me and took my legs out and my face hit the ground pretty hard," recalled Arcidiacono, a 16-year-old rising junior at Neshaminy (Pa.) High School. "It just hurt. It felt like I had a golf ball in my face. I had blood on my hands. It was just gushing blood."

It was after midnight when Gene Rice, Arcidiacono's AAU coach with the PA Playaz, took his 6-foot-4, 190-pound point guard to the Wake Forest University Medical Center where he took eight stitches in the forehead.

PHILLY - Drove down here this morning and I've already eaten a Philly cheese steak at the Pour House with Dana O'Neill of ESPN.com and Brendan Quinn of Basketball Times. Quinn did the driving and did a spectacular job parallel parking in front of the restaurant, a la George Costanza in the hospital episode of "Seinfeld."

Here are some quick notes.

PRINCETON, N.J. -- Hamady N'Diaye leaped high above the rim and dunked home a Mike Coburn miss to give Rutgers a three point lead with 10.6 seconds left against Princeton at Jadwin Gym.

N'Diaye's athletic play and two foul shots in the final seconds by JR Inman helped insure a 49-44 victory by the Scarlet Knights instead of another ignominious loss in its non-conference schedule.
