  • NEW YORK — In addition to his supersonic speed and killer instinct, it turns out John Wall may also possess a photographic memory.

    So says Washington Wizards coach Flip Saunders.

    “He’s got an extremely high basketball IQ and it seems like he’s got a photographic memory,” Saunders said before Wall put up 19 points, six assists and five rebounds in the Wizards’ 92-90 loss to the Knicks Sunday night at Madison Square Garden.

    Quincy Miller will announce for Baylor, according to a source with direct knowledge. The source said Miller was down to Baylor and Louisville and that Louisville “ain’t getting him.”
    Whether Miller’s Westchester (N.C.) Country Day teammate Deuce Bello joins him at Baylor remains unclear. Bello visited Florida State this past weekend.
    “Deuce and Quincy said they will have something to say this Thursday,” Westchester athletic director Pat Kahny said via email.
    The 6-foot-9 1/2 Miller, the No. 1 power forward in the Class of 2011, originally had Duke and Oklahoma on his list, but did not take a scheduled visit to Duke last weekend and sources said the two sides had parted ways.

    In an interview earlier this month, Miller said: “Baylor and Louisville are slightly in the lead and Duke is right behind and then Oklahoma.”

    Former Wake Forest junior center Tony Woods has decided to transfer to Louisville in January, according to a source with direct knowledge.

    Woods would become eligible in December 2011 for his junior year.

    Norman Parker, Woods’ AAU coach with the Georgia Stars, was not immediately available for comment.

    The 6-foot-11, 250-pound Woods was suspended indefinitely on September 13 after being arrested on assault charges. He requested his release to pursue other options.

    Woods can’t sign a Letter of Intent and there’s nothing stopping him from visiting other schools, but the source said Louisville will take him if he wants to come there.

    George Mason got a double-dose of good news on Sunday when St. Benedict’s Prep shooting guard Vaughn Gray (left) and Christ the King point guard Corey Edwards (below) both committed during their official visits.

    “We talked about it when we got down there,” the 5-foot-10, 176-pound Edwards said by phone. “We felt mutual. I’m a pass-first point guard and he’s a scorer. That would be a perfect situation for both of us.”

    Edwards chose George Mason over UNLV, Fordham and Hofstra.

    “I liked the whole atmosphere, the crowd, the team, the coaches,” Edwards said.
