The Calvert Hall boys basketball team spent part of Monday at Loyola's gym, but the typical intensity that comes when the rivals are together was nowhere to be found. Instead, there was common ground. The usual competitive fire will resume Thursday when the teams meet in the Baltimore Catholic League quarterfinal round. But for Calvert Hall, Loyola and the six other BCL schools Monday, it was an invaluable chance to give back. All eight teams spent the day providing various community services, paired in two and working in conjunction with the Catholic Charities of Baltimore.

His players sat silently in the corner of the locker room. Much like he did when he was a player at Maryland more than a quarter century ago, Archbishop Spalding boys basketball coach Derrick Lewis measured his words carefully before speaking. "I lost a bunch of games over a long career, but I never gave up," Lewis said in a low, but forceful voice. "A lot of you guys gave up tonight. " A few minutes before, Loyola embarrassed the Cavaliers, 69-49, on Senior Night. Lewis used the loss as an opportunity to give his players a bit of a history lesson, recalling his junior year in College Park, which was Bob Wade's first season as coach.

VILLANOVA, Pa. - Villanova teammates Reggie Bryant and Derrick Snowden go on for hours, reviving a rivalry. Who was the most dynamic high school basketball player? Better yet, whose team was tops? Bryant, a former All-Metro performer at Calvert Hall, will bring up his dunk over Archbishop Spalding's Snowden, who was The Sun's Player of the Year for 1999-2000. Snowden will counter with the Cavaliers' two lopsided victories over the Cardinals before dropping his biggest bomb: the two Baltimore Catholic League titles that Spalding won. Conversation over?

Shortly after the season began, Calvert Hall basketball coach John Bauersfeld crammed his players into a classroom and let them have their say. The Cardinals had dominated their summer league, dedicated themselves to a rigorous workout program in the fall and filled the preseason with grind-it-out practices that brought healthy competition. But that collective heart-to-heart in mid-December - each player having his say - might have as much to do with the Cardinals' breakthrough season as anything else.
