COLLEGE PARK - Mark Turgeon's two distinct memories of Len Bias have lasted three decades. The first occurred when Turgeon was a sophomore point guard at Kansas, sharing the same court at the Greak Alaskan Shootout with a junior rising star from Maryland. "Dunked on him," the Terps coach joked this week. In reality, Turgeon recalled how the muscular, 6-foot-8 power forward scraped his head on the bottom of the backboard after going in for a dunk. "That was the first time I had seen that," Turgeon said.

Carlton Bailey was in his Charlotte, N.C., home yesterday when he made far bigger plays than any he ever made in the three Super Bowls he started for the Buffalo Bills. Bailey, 36, changed the dressing on his 82-year-old diabetic grandmother's bandages from insulin injections, and he gave his three cousins who live with him as much love and attention as he could. "I've always said I wanted to care for my grandmothers when they got older because I wanted them to enjoy their final years," said Bailey, who was a first-team All-Metro defensive lineman at Woodlawn High in 1982.

Every pitch evoked a grunt, a piercing aarrgh! on the mound that rode in with the fastball or curve or that confounded changeup. Batters echoed the aarrgh!, flailing away at the offerings of Bill VonDenBosch. For 19 years, VonDenBosch pretzeled many a hitter - enough to win 379 games, compile an ERA of 1.03 and carve a niche as the first softball pitcher ever elected to the Maryland Athletic Hall of Fame. He'll be inducted tonight at a banquet, along with former major league slugger Harold Baines, boxer Vincent Pettway and NFL receiver Calvin Williams, who played for the Philadelphia Eagles and Ravens.

After then-12-year-old Hunter Machin bowled a perfect 300 game earlier this year, he could have left the sport knowing he had accomplished a feat that is difficult even for professional bowlers. But it appears he is not done yet. Now 13, Hunter has bowled an 800 series, something bowling experts consider much more difficult than a 300. The Dundalk resident bowled games of 269, 289 and 278 for a score of 833 on Nov. 9 at Brunswick Perry Hall Lanes. But Hunter wasn't celebrating right away - he was focused on the fact that he narrowly missed another 300 three times in a row. "He was like, 'I can't believe I didn't get my 300 again,'" his mom, Vickie Machin, said.

Nameplates of the 152 men and women thus far elected to the Maryland Athletic Hall of Fame have been placed on public display by the Baltimore Orioles in a gesture that at first reaction merits generous applause. It was the proper thing for a rich and prosperous organization to do. But then you look at where they put the plaques -- between two restrooms.Small engraved renderings list the year each individual was enshrined and the sports they played. The Hall of Fame commission, headed by Ed Athey and Chester O'Sullivan, which also includes ex-athletes, sportswriters and sportscasters, is a non-paid group that, by its charter, is only supposed to provide a public service.
