COLLEGE PARK -- If a sequence could summarize Braxton Dupree's freshman season at Maryland, it happened in the second half of Wednesday night's home loss to Virginia Tech. Dupree appeared to run out of steam, and Terps coach Gary Williams ran out of patience. Given a chance to play in the first half because of foul trouble to seniors James Gist and Bambale Osby, Dupree responded. On one play, he ripped down a rebound and fired an outlet pass to Greivis Vasquez, who hit a three-pointer.

He sits in his office in the gym at Anne Arundel Community College. He tells a dark story."I guess I had a nervous breakdown," Mark Amatucci says. "Yeah. I didn't really want to admit it, but my doctor says I did. I was as low as you could get mentally."He is back up again, at least upright, so he can talk about it. They ran him off at Loyola College and he slipped into a terrible funk. This was two years ago."I was fearful, angry, repressive, very irrational," he says. "I felt like a failure.

Sitting at his desk in the guidance office at Calvert Hall, Mark Amatucci appears different.He no longer looks -- or acts -- like the beleaguered basketball coach who had to resign at Loyola College six years ago."That's all people seem to remember about Loyola," said Amatucci. "They remember how things were at the end. They forget about the five great years we had there when Tommy O'Connor was the athletic director."He's right, too.Amatucci was the boy wonder coach who won a national high school championship at Calvert Hall in 1982.

Despite his club's four-game winning streak, including recent victories over No. 11 Walbrook and No. 13 St. Frances, Calvert Hall coach Mark Amatucci insists his Cardinals "are not that good."In fact, the 7-5 Cardinals failed to get even one vote in this week's Baltimore Sun poll, which tends to support Amatucci's assertion."Don't be talking rankings to me," Amatucci warns. "That might put a whammy on us."Much like the whammy the Cardinals have put on their most recent opponents, beginning with the Dec. 28 Kennard Dale (Pa.)

Mark Amatucci has had it with the administration at Anne Arundel Community College and says he's "tired of sitting back and not saying anything about what's going on."The third-year Pioneers head basketball coach and assistant athletic director -- who also serves as an academic monitor for student-athletes -- is disgusted with the overallsituation at the Arnold campus.It bothers him that the negative sniping at him and Athletic Director Buddy Beardmore continues, easily overshadowing the overall excellent jobs they have done.

One of the worst-kept secrets in town the last few weeks has been Mark Amatucci's interest in the basketball job at St. Francis, N.Y. It's a position that would allow him to re-enter Division I, and one in which he would also be replacing one of his former assistants.Loyola didn't renew Amatucci's contract near the end of the 1988-89 season, and he has spent the last two seasons at Anne Arundel Community College, racking up more than 50 wins. He might be waiting some time for word from St. Francis, which is still accepting applications and isn't close to interviewing candidates.

Dale Chambers has been fired after just one season as boys basketball coach at Archbishop Spalding of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference and Baltimore Catholic League. After Mike Glick, who now coaches Gwynn Park, resigned at the end of the 2005-06 season, Chambers led the Cavaliers to a 10-22 record last season. Spalding upset second-seeded and fourth-ranked St. Frances, 57-56, in the BCL tournament quarterfinals before losing to Mount St. Joseph, 63-35, in the semifinals.

In March of 1982, upstart Calvert Hall College High School, with a young team and a young coach, beat Hyattsville's DeMatha High School, under legendary coach Morgan Wootten, to win the prestigious Alhambra Tournament and complete an undefeated season. Ranked No. 1 in the country at the beginning of that season by Street & Smith and Basketball Weekly - admittedly, a nebulous thing - the Calvert Hall Cardinals of Towson went from Las Vegas to Philadelphia and back to beat all comers and finish 34-0, proving that ranking as best as it could be proved.

Paul Edwards isn't sure which game during Calvert Hall's historic national championship run 25 years ago triggered the next day's killer practice, only that the television series The White Shadow was responsible. Like just about every high school basketball player of that time, Edwards and the rest of the Cardinals were hooked on the fictional Carver High team and its weekly antics, so much so that the real players decided one night to try a few behind-the-back passes and trickery during a game.

It was a lackluster effort, but top-ranked Mount St. Joseph got it done with a 57-49 victory over Cardinal Gibbons last night in the first round of the 35th Baltimore Catholic League tournament at Loyola College. The victory leaves the Gaels (34-0) tying the 1981-82 Mark Amatucci-coached Calvert Hall team for most total wins and most consecutive wins in a season by a Baltimore metro-area team. The Gaels will play Amatucci's Cardinals tonight in the BCL semifinals at 7 p.m. for a chance to break the record and advance to their third BCL final in four years and earn their third tournament title in as many tries.

As Marge Burley and Margie Schlundt run the rock-studded hills in Patapsco State Park, fording streams, ducking branches, they are both sure-footed and swift. Finished with work for the day, the friends are training for Ironman triathlons and ultramarathon trail races. Meanwhile, in the city, Laurie Amatucci and Sue Fenimore are devoting some evenings to the track at Baltimore Polytechnic Institute and Western High School. The two seasoned runners are helping novices train for their first 5K race: the Baltimore Women's Classic to be held at the Inner Harbor on June 26. Although their physical ambitions differ, these four women share the distinction of crossing boundaries that weren't dreamed of when they were growing up in the days before Title IX required schools to provide sports programs for girls.
