The Beacon Journal's David Lee Morgan Jr. reported this recruiting news item:

Revere basketball standout Casey Nance has made an oral commitment to attend and play basketball at the University of Dayton.

Last year, Nance, a 6-foot-4 forward/center and daughter of former Cavaliers player Larry Nance, averaged 14 points, 14 rebounds and four blocked shots. The Minutemen finished 15-7.

''With Casey, there were different aspects that were important to her in her decision,'' Revere coach Kory Malkus said. ''Academics were important to her, as well as the closer distance, and she enjoyed the team and felt a vibe when she visited. She felt a connection with the coaching staff and all of that is a perfect fit for her.

''I also think she can strive and will be successful in the Atlantic 10 (Conference).''

Nance was considering several other schools, including Bowling Green, Clemson and Penn State.
