Phil Booth hit back-to-back 3-pointers late in the game to get the No. 3 Mount St. Joseph boys basketball team within striking distance of Bishop Denis J. O'Connell (Va.). But the Gaels' final, potentially game- winning 3-point attempt with 3.7 seconds left bounced off the rim and the Gaels fell, 70-68, in the opening round of the Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament in Cumberland on Thursday. "I was disappointed in the result, but not disappointed in the effort," Gaels coach Pat Clatchey said.

The top-ranked Towson Catholic boys basketball team, champion of the Baltimore Catholic League and Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference, has one goal left - to win the 47th Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament at Frostburg State. "We want to beat DeMatha in the Alhambra," Owls guard Malcolm Delaney said. "We want another shot at them." For that to happen, both must advance to Saturday night's final.

Very little went right for No. 1 John Carroll boys basketball team in the second round of the Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament at Frostburg State on Friday. Point guard Malcolm McMillan got in early foul trouble and sat out most of the second quarter, and DeMatha made three times as many free throws as the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association and Baltimore Catholic League champion Patriots (33-3) lost, 38-32. The Stags (28-7), the Washington Catholic Athletic Association and Washington city champions, used long offensive possessions and a 2-3 zone to stifle John Carroll's offense, which scored half as many points as compared to the first round.

The No. 8 St. Frances boys basketball team has been invited to next week's Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament for the first time since 1997, and Panthers standout Sean Mosley is cherishing the opportunity. "It's a good feeling for me and the team to have been invited to Alhambra, because my first year, after winning the [Baltimore Catholic League], the rule was that the BCL winner should get an invitation to Alhambra and it didn't go that way," Mosley said. In 2005, when Mosley was a freshman, the Panthers made an unlikely run and won the BCL tournament as a fifth seed.

One of my favorite parts of a vacation is learning about a new city or country's literary tradition, and visiting places where it was forged. A highlight of my recent stay in Spain was a trip to Genada's Alhambra, a spectacular Moorish palace that dates to the 13th Century as a royal residence (and has sections that are even older). I had bought a copy of Washington Irving's "Tales of the Alhambra" at a second-hand bookshop in Madrid, and spent several days reading the remarkable stories, including a recollection of boys who baited fishing rods with flies and tried to catch sparrows from the castle towers.
