College basketball

ACC top scorer Delaney returning to Virginia Tech

Virginia Tech guard Malcolm Delaney, who attended Towson Catholic, has decided to withdraw his name from the NBA draft. Delaney did not hire an agent and therefore is eligible to return to the Hokies. "I have decided to come back to Virginia Tech for my senior season," said Delaney, who led the Atlantic Coast Conference in scoring in 2009-10 and was a unanimous selection to the All-ACC first team. "I learned that I would not have been a first-round pick, and I want to work hard to become a better basketball player. I am coming back because I have the opportunity to earn my degree at the end of the first semester, and I want to, along with my fellow seniors, help lead Virginia Tech to a Final Four." Underclassmen who declare for the NBA draft and do not sign with an agent had until Saturday to remove their names from the draft and retain their college eligibility.

Major League Lacrosse

Bayhawks foiled, 9-7, in exhibition against Outlaws

Chesapeake Bayhawks attackman Danny Glading scored three goals in a 9-7 Major League Lacrosse exhibition loss to the Denver Outlaws, 9-7, at Severn. Attackman Andrew "Buggs" Combs (Maryland) had one goal and one assist for the Bayhawks, who took 45 shots on Jesse Schwartzman (Johns Hopkins) and Adam Fullerton. "I thought we played well against a very talented Denver club," Bayhawks coach John Tucker said. "Denver has two phenomenal goalkeepers, and they took away some goals tonight. However, I thought our shooting wasn't particularly great." Midfielders Brian Vetter (Towson) and Peet Poillon (UMBC) and attackman Josh Coveleski scored the other Chesapeake goals. The Bayhawks won their first exhibition, 27-3, Friday night against Team England. They will open their regular season Saturday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis against the Long Island Lizards at 7p.m.
