Basketball's Pat Riley once remarked that "it's what you get from basketball games you lose that is extremely important. " Last Saturday's brawl at Coppin State University proves the former NBA head coach and Miami Heat executive was on to something. For those who missed it, Coppin State's women's basketball team lost a hard-fought contest to the visiting North Carolina A&T Aggies, 75-74, on Saturday at the university's Physical Education Complex. It was a tough loss by any standard (the Eagles had lead by 15 points earlier in the game)

As a kid, Terry McAulay watched football games on TV and practiced the moves he saw - not the spins and jukes of the players, but the gestures and actions of the officials. Hands on hips? Offside. Arms folded? Delay of game. At age 9, McAulay knew them all. "Terry would sit there for hours, mimicking every signal that the referees used," said Dene McAulay, his mother. "We marveled at [the pantomime]. He never said a word, he just did it. " Some day, he told his family, he would referee the Super Bowl . Sunday, McAulay will do that for the third time when the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks meet in Super Bowl XLVIII in East Rutherford, N.J. It's the highest honor for an NFL official and a tribute that doesn't surprise high school coaches in the Baltimore area who dealt with McAulay, of Howard County, in his early years as an arbiter.

As City standout senior guard Kamau Stokes hobbled off Edmondson's court on Friday, his arms draped over teammates on both sides, it looked as if the No. 1 Knights survived as much as won. In a physical and intense game played in front of a highly-charged crowd, City started fast and maintained its focus throughout to stay on course for a resilient, 65-57, win over the No. 6 Red Storm. Stokes, who banged his knee in the closing minutes but was able to return, scored a game-high 20 points.

Smith tallied all eight of her points in the last five minutes to spark the No. 5 Engineers to a 53-49 upset of the Reds in the first meeting between the two programs, located only a few miles apart in north Baltimore. Smith's pull-up 18-footer with 49 seconds left was perhaps the biggest shot of the night, giving the Engineers a 51-48 lead.

How important is the expected return of suspended Maryland running back Wes Brown for next season? Jeff Barker: I thought Brown looked like Maryland's most talented running back in his freshman season of 2012. So, it's significant. Running backs coach Andre Powell once told me of Brown: “Most of the time when you pair up big and fast in football, it's a pretty good combination. " Brown fumbled twice in Maryland's second game of 2012 - a win over Temple - and I remember hoping that coaches would stick with him because he seemed the most natural runner of the tailbacks.
