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.

Mike Coughlan is a basketball junkie in the purest form. He simply loves the game and everything that comes with it.  Just how much? He was happy to see the Super Bowl come and go, so he can start seeing and hearing more about the NBA.  Since 1997, he has coached boys and girls basketball at various levels, everything from a junior varsity/assistant varsity boys coach at Howard High to a number of successful girls AAU teams.   When Marriotts Ridge...

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.

Unlike Mark Turgeon's first three years at Maryland, when a lack of early-season road experience and not many tough non-league games left his men's basketball team a little ill-prepared for what it would face in the ACC, the Terps should be more battle-tested when they start play in the Big Ten. Unlike Maryland's final season in the ACC, most of the Big Ten's marquee programs will be coming to College Park. The 2014-15 schedule, which was unveiled Thursday night on the Big Ten Network, includes a previously announced first-round matchup against Arizona State in the CBE Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City on Nov. 24 as well as a home game against longtime rival Virginia on Dec. 3 in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

Wiley is the only Terp on a team that also includes players from North Carolina State and Mount St.Mary's. Against Basics Melsele of Belgium, Wiley had 11 points and four rebounds. He followed up that performance with a 14-point, three-rebound display against Germany's SG Sechtem.

Sunday, they will host the U.S.E. Basketball Foundation Family Reunion, which will bring many former Baltimore-area female players to Baltimore City Community College to play basketball and pass on to younger players their knowledge of what it takes to get to college.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - The ride from Collingswood, N.J., to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame takes about four hours by car. Fueled by a passion for the game very few possess, a South Jersey gym rat named Gary Williams arrived here in the class of 2014 after a four-plus-decade coaching journey. “It's a great thrill, a very humbling experience,” Williams told a packed house at Symphony Hall that included nearly 100 family members, former players, assistants and friends, including Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti and former Maryland governor Robert Ehrlich.

"It would have been hard, but I would have had to do it - Maryland's my school," said Williams, who was entering his ninth year as a Division I head coach and had...

The event at the Under Armour campus in Baltimore played out like a fashion show and felt like a pep rally - replete with a standing-room-only crowd, bass-pumping music, thundersticks, Ravens cheerleaders and dance moves by mascot Poe. The end result, though, was all charity. With one athlete from each team acting as a model, Under Armour and the Ravens on Wednesday revealed the new uniforms they're donating to the varsity football and girls basketball programs of all 24 Baltimore public high schools.
