COLLEGE PARK - Mark Turgeon's two distinct memories of Len Bias have lasted three decades. The first occurred when Turgeon was a sophomore point guard at Kansas, sharing the same court at the Greak Alaskan Shootout with a junior rising star from Maryland. "Dunked on him," the Terps coach joked this week. In reality, Turgeon recalled how the muscular, 6-foot-8 power forward scraped his head on the bottom of the backboard after going in for a dunk. "That was the first time I had seen that," Turgeon said.

One of the key components to Arundel's consistent success in recent years has been how players have been able to take on expanded roles as their careers have progressed. Wildcats senior power forward Ryan Hill is the perfect example. Hill gained some experience by moving up to the varsity team as a sophomore, earned more time as a junior while averaging 4.3 points and 3.5 rebounds, and has now taken his game to a higher level with a breakthrough senior season. As the team's go-to player inside, Hill, a 6-foot-4 power forward and captain, is averaging 13.7 points and 7.0 rebounds for the No. 9 Wildcats (14-2)

It's easy to understand why Westminster senior guard Mackenzie Murray is savoring her time on the basketball court more than many others this season. In each of the past two seasons, Murray suffered torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments, requiring two surgeries (one to each knee) 13 months apart. Murray, also a standout forward on the Owls soccer team, spent 4 to 5 months in physical therapy after each procedure to be able to continue her athletic career. After finishing as one of Westminster's leading scorers on the soccer field this past fall, her third year on varsity, Murray is now doing whatever she can to help the basketball team to a winning season.

The former Dunbar High basketball player and captain of the vaunted Boston Celtics collapsed and died while leisurely shooting baskets on Tuesday.His premature death at age 27, apparently from a heart abnormality, taps the kind of head-shaking dread people felt when they learned that basketball superstar Earvin "Magic" Johnson had AIDS, or that Maryland basketball All-American Len Bias had died of a drug overdose, or that runner Jim Fixx had dropped dead, or more recently, when death-defying auto racer Davey Allison perished in a helicopter crash.
