His name is Terrell Suggs, but for the next couple of months they will call him "LeTron James. " While the NFL and the National Football League Players Association negotiate a new collective bargaining agreement, players are finding other ways to stay in shape because the current lockout prohibits them from working out or participating in minicamps at their respective training facilities. That's where "LeTron James" comes in. Suggs is playing pickup basketball four or five times a week in a semi-pro league in his home state of Arizona.

Of all the traits Mount St. Joseph senior guard Phil Booth has brought to the basketball court in his fourth varsity season, his consistency on offense and defense may stand out the most.

Averaging 18 points, six rebounds and three assists a game, the Villanova-bound Booth was named the Baltimore Catholic League's Jerry Savage Player of the Year Monday night at Snyder's Willow Grove Restaurant in Linthicum.

Most of the time, the opening tip in a basketball game is a simple formality. But Oakland Mills junior forward Mamadou Ndiaye can make it a spectacle. Opposite Hammond's big man at a recent home game, Ndiaye - a sleek 6 feet, 7 inches and 195 pounds - easily gets a foot higher to reach the ball at its highest point. He sends the tap back with such force, however, the ball goes over a teammate and out of bounds on the baseline. The seamless effort is an immediate testament to Ndiaye's natural athletic gifts.

Of all the qualities that Oakland Mills senior Kevin Gibson has brought to the soccer field and basketball court throughout his fine high school career, one clearly stands above the rest. It's not all the goals he kept out of the Scorpions' net as a sweeper on the soccer team or the ones he scored. And it's not the points and rebounds he has piled up in his three years playing forward on the basketball team. More than anything, it's Gibson's ability to lead. "In Kevin, you could see that right away in just how he carried himself," Oakland Mills basketball coach Jon Browne said.

Danny Shand is quick to answer the hypothetical question, taking it on with the same brash confidence the senior shows on the court as point guard of the New Town boys basketball team. If the Titans return to the state title game and you get to the free-throw line, say, six times in the fourth quarter, how many will you make? “I'm knocking down all six,” he states boldly, and then smiles. “I'm getting them all this year.” The most difficult day of Shand's basketball life came last March.
