The rigor required to create a Nantucket lightship basket puts the lie to any cheap jokes about learning the craft. “If these baskets are made perfectly,” says Leslie Goldsmith, “they should be able to hold water.” Consumers today associate the baskets “with the oval purses and a lid,” Goldsmith says. But she and her fellow weavers in the Nantucket Basket Guild are drawn to the historical legacy and precision of the craft. “These baskets are made the same way sailors made them in the 1800s,” she says.

Just a comment about Gov. Martin O'Malley's forecast of hard times for Maryland if sequestration comes to pass: Perhaps the governor should have been working harder all along to improve the industrial diversity in the state instead of working so hard to bring more and more government to Maryland.

Last Saturday I put up another basketball goal. It was, I think, the seventh attempted hoop-raising of my career. Seven has turned out to be my lucky number. So far this basketball goal has not fallen down.No. 6 fell down after about 30 minutes of use. A kid tossed in a long shot and Bam! The rim, the backboard and the support structure all slid down the pole that was supposed to be holding them up.No one was hurt. But it was not a great moment in handymanism.I had spent most of another Saturday afternoon trying to put that hoop up. What was supposed to have been a triumphal occasion turned into a comedy.

Remember the flap that developed over the way Nykesha Sales broke the Connecticut women's basketball scoring record? Well, it all may be for nothing: Sales may not have broken the record after all.In its inaugural issue, ESPN Magazine reported that Sales was incorrectly credited with a basket in a January game against Seton Hall, which would again leave her one point short of the school record of 2,177 points.The magazine, which debuts this week, received a tape of the Jan. 22 contest, during which Sales was given credit for a layup late in the game.

Kevin Hunt took Sam Moore's pass and laid it in with one second left to give No. 8 Broadneck a 70-69 victory over No. 15 Arundel last night. The visiting Wildcats (4-1) had just taken the lead at 69-68 on Brandon Johnson-Farrell's only basket of the night with eight seconds remaining. Broadneck (4-2) went the length of the court, and Moore found Hunt alone under the basket for the win. "Coach [John Williams] said get it up the court and we had a play called high screen, and if I can get there, just take [the shot]

Julius Erving, the great "Dr. J," had the biggest hand of any athlete I've ever shook hands with. If you care about these things, Michael Jordan was No. 2 on that list. And John Unitas, the iconic Baltimore Colts quarterback, was No. 3. No, I'm not a hands freak. I'm just saying. I interviewed The Doctor in the mid-1980s, at the tail end of his brilliant career, when he starred for the Philadelphia 76ers. He was still a hugely exciting player to watch, although his wondrous, soaring trips to the basket were becoming less frequent.

My most vivid childhood memories involve crabs: checking the crab pots tied to my grandparents' pier in Annapolis, picking crabs for hours at a long table in my parents' backyard, listening carefully to my grandfather's instructions about how to capture every single bit of delicious meat out of a crab. And "helping" my father steam crabs at home, in our kitchen. Steamed crabs are readily available at many Baltimore restaurants and carryout seafood houses: You can buy them already cooked and seasoned, ready to toss on the table and pick.

A plan came together for the Loyola men's basketball team yesterday. The result was Damien Jenifer's full-court drive for a last-second lay-in that gave the Greyhounds a 57-55 victory over St. Peters at Reitz Arena, ending a six-game losing streak. All season in practice, Loyola coach Dino Gaudio had worked on situations like the one his team found itself in with 13.7 seconds remaining -- tied at 55 after St. Peter's guard Andre Wisniewski missed the back end of two free throws, the rebound going to Blanchard Hurd.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Like all those Internet claims that Bill Gates will personally give chain e-mailers $5,000 each, the traditional low-post center has become something of an urban legend in women's basketball. Once upon a time, women's teams built their success around a dominant back-to-the-basket player like Old Dominion's Anne Donovan or Maryland's Vicky Bullett, but today's teams are just as likely to win from the perimeter in. But, somewhere around 2: 30 this afternoon, a myth becomes somewhat real in today's second NCAA Mideast Regional.
