Life is a lot different for Worth Smith than many undergraduates across the nation. The Navy junior men's basketball player's life is very regimented.  Every day, the Navy forward wakes up, showers and he shaves. He dresses sharp, and makes sure his shoes are clean.  At 7 a.m., Smith heads to formation, then breakfast, then class from 7:55 a.m. to 11:45 a.m., and lunch.   Between lunch and class resuming, Smith and his teammates watch film. Once class ends, around 3:30 p.m., he goes straight to practice, then back to formation, dinner, and study time.  “There is a lot of stuff you have to do, a lot of stuff on your plate, and they expect you to be able to do it all,” Smith said.

The value of contracts at Aberdeen Proving Ground plummeted 13 percent last year, but businesses with Maryland locations ended up with roughly as much as the year before. Even with the overall drop, the numbers are eye-popping. The Army base in Harford County obligated about $13.6 billion in the fiscal year ending Sept. 30 for items that ranged from software engineering to radar equipment, according to the APG Contracting Center. The national base realignment effort known as BRAC, which sent high-tech organizations from the now-closed Fort Monmouth in New Jersey to Aberdeen, boosted APG's contracting power in a big way during the past decade.

It has been four weeks since Navy added to its string of victories over Army in college football's most venerated rivalry, but the amicable athletic animosity between the nation's two oldest service academies does not begin and end on the gridiron. Their reciprocal mantras - "Go Navy, beat Army" and "Go Army, Beat Navy" - reverberate through their respective athletic programs all year round, and the intensity of the rivalry was very much on display for Saturday's nationally televised basketball doubleheader at Alumni Hall.

The latest installment of the Army and Navy men's basketball rivalry will take place Saturday at 4 p.m. at Alumni Hall in Annapolis. The Midshipmen lead the series 53-37, but the Black Knights have won the last two meetings and three of the last four. As important as beating an archrival is, Navy has other things on its collective mind. The team is 6-8 overall and 1-2 in the Patriot League, and has lost five of its last six contests. That's why coach Ed DeChellis isn't putting more significance on the game against Army than any other league contest.
