With Coppin State's men's basketball team set to open its first official practice Monday afternoon under new coach Michael Grant, some of the Eagles had trouble getting a full night of sleep Sunday. "I went to sleep around 4 and woke up around 10. So I only had six hours. I was geared up and ready to go," said senior guard Taariq Cephas. Senior forward Dallas Gary had the a similar experience. "I was pretty anxious for the first day just because it's going to be fun and it's going to be a new system," he said.

Sun columnist Mike Preston weighed-in on the NFL lockout yesterday. He wrote about the skyrocketing costs of gasoline, the tsunami in Japan and the rising national debt. His point was simple: There are things in life more important that millionaire athletes bickering with billionaire owners. There are things in life more important than sports.  President Obama, it seems, has a different take. Instead of spending every waking hour concerning himself with America's stagnant economy or whether the U.S. should take action against Libya, Obama has been spending his time researching college basketball to make his March Madness picks  for a segment on ESPN.

It all still lives in Larry Gibson — the warm lights of Cole Field House, the coaching assistant who told him to remember "1, 2, 3, swish" before free throws, his shots that beat No. 1 Notre Dame and sent Maryland fans streaming onto the court on Super Bowl Sunday 1979. It is through pulsating, basketball-filled nights — through memories of sweat and rebounds and cheerleaders and fight songs — that Gibson, now 55, returns to his aging teammates in fleeting moments.

If Len Bias could attend his own Hall of Fame ceremony on Friday , he'd do so as a 50-year-old man. That's a heck of a thing to wrap your head around if, like me, you grew up as an obsessed ACC basketball fan in the 1980s. Lenny has lived as an idea about what could have been for so long, it's strange to think of him as an actual person. Every generation has its touchstones. For my parents, it was the Kennedy assassination. People my age remember watching from their elementary school classrooms as the Challenger exploded and later on, 9/11.

When the news broke nearly two years ago that Maryland was likely headed for the Big Ten, former Terps basketball star Len Elmore was among the first to raise concerns. Elmore, an ESPN college basketball analyst and attorney, openly wondered whether the lure of Big Ten money truly outweighed leaving behind the Atlantic Coast Conference, of which Maryland was a founding member. He also worried about the hit the school could take from the ACC's exit fee. This week, Elmore - in Washington for a meeting of the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics, of which he is a member - revisited the topic.

They have survived badly sprained ankles and torn knee ligaments, mild concussions and more than their share of poor shooting days. Ralph Piersanti, one of the oldest in a group, has had two heart attacks. But they keep playing a game that used to be thought of for mostly younger men and women. Three times a week, more than two dozen men in their 60s, 70s and even a few like Piersanti, in their 80s, typically show up at the Bykota Senior Center in Towson - normally thought of as a place for more placid activities such as bingo and line-dancing - to play basketball.
