WASHINGTON - Only four days after George Washington University unveiled its new basketball court at the Charles E. Smith Center, several former Terps and local players had the honor of being among the first to play on it as part of the Basketball Alumni Legends League's Pro Basketball Series. The league, founded by Michael Wranovics in 2012, is intended to give professional basketball players who are not at the NBA level an outlet to showcase their talents during the summer. By pitting local stars against one another, Wranovics hopes to generate fan interest and create immediate team chemistry.

Massaquoi, who plays Amateur Athletic Union basketball with the Columbia Ravens, wants to play the sport in college.

Deb Taylor has always loved basketball. She played for four years at the University of Vermont in the late 1980s and moved on to coach the girls varsity team at Archbishop Spalding. Taylor has been the coach at Spalding for 10 years but still can't keep herself off the court as a player. She plays in the Anne Arundel County Recreation and Parks women's basketball league - something she has done on and off for the past 15 years. "It makes me feel happy that I'm still out there playing," Taylor said.

MEN'S BASKETBALL, as we reported last winter, is alive and thriving in Howard County. Never been healthier, with the reigning Maryland men's titlist playing here. But Title IX's impact on the sport in girls leagues, schools and colleges notwithstanding, for grown women, there've been no teams, no league, apparently ever, locally. That is about to change, Mark Pendleton, a sports coordinator for the Department of Recreation and Parks, reported last week. The county's first women's basketball league is scheduled to start in early January.

It's cold outside the Maryland Transportation Authority Police Station. Crickets are chirping as the day begins to take hold, and Dudley Bradley is doing push-ups in the parking lot, preparing himself for a tryout as an officer for the agency. The life of a police officer is a far cry from the days when the 6-foot-6-inch-tall Bradley ran up and down the basketball court with Larry Bird and Magic Johnson, making a name for himself as one of the NBA's most solid defensive players. In a decadelong career in the 1980s, Bradley played for seven professional teams after having been drafted in the first round out of the University of North Carolina.

The players race from one end of the court to the other - shoes squeaking, coaches yelling, whistles blowing. It looks like a typical summer basketball game, albeit one in a league that pits some of the top high school teams in the region against each other. But the new Merrill Lynch Summer Basketball League seeks to make its players competitive on the court, in school and in life, requiring them to attend a mandatory weekend session on the importance of college and thinking about the future.

There are dads whose role in the education of their children ends at the altar - when they marry the women they expect to handle all that stuff. And there are dads whose role in the education of their children ends at conception - absent fathers whose own memories of school may be so negative that nothing could get them in the schoolhouse door again. And then there are the dads who are playing basketball Thursday nights in Annapolis, lured into their children's schools with the promise of a little exercise and a little fun. Rhonda Pindell-Charles, who has been, along with her family, a quiet force in the African-American community in Annapolis for generations, has started a basketball league for the fathers of children in the public school system.
