As the point guard for South Carroll's 13th-ranked girls basketball team, Nikki Heim stepped into a leadership role this season. Not only does the 5-foot-10 junior lead her team in scoring with 13.8 points per game, but she also leads the team in assists, averaging 4.8 for the 13-2 Cavaliers, who are undefeated in Carroll County. Heim, who celebrated her 17th birthday last week, is an Amateur Athletic Union veteran, playing with the Maryland Storm, but she also plays lacrosse and field hockey for the Cavaliers.

Like most of her college basketball peers, Maryland's Alyssa Thomas will be monitoring the U.S. Olympic women's team during the London Games, imagining what it might be like to represent her country on such a grand scale. Thomas' credentials at this stage of her career certainly have validated the junior forward's Olympic aspirations. As the first sophomore in school history to be named first-team All-American, Thomas won Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year, ACC tournament Most Valuable Player and pushed the Terrapins to within one victory of the Final Four.

ATHENS -- An answer to the question "Whose game is it anyway?" was furnished last night, courtesy of a dead-eye Lithuanian guard. Sarunas Jasikevicius single-handedly shot down the U.S. Olympic men's basketball team like a latter-day Sarunas Marciulionis, scoring 11 of Lithuania's last 12 points for a 94-90 win. Don't call it an upset. Jasikevicius' reward, if you can call it that, was to endure a string of remedial questions from the not-so-international media. Hey, do you still have nightmares about that three-pointer you missed in the 2000 Sydney Olympics that would have given Lithuania the win over the U.S. team in the semifinals?

Did the past decade really go by this fast? Wasn't it just yesterday when the parade celebrating the Ravens' Super Bowl victory rolled through downtown with 200,000 packed in along the route? Maybe it just seems like it because the Ravens teased us last season before falling one game short of a return trip to the biggest dance. Over the past 10 years, we have seen unbridled joy - remember Michael Phelps cheering on his relay teammates during the 2008 Olympics and Kimmie Meissner skating to a world title - and sadness - John Unitas and Jim McKay dying, Barbaro going down in the Preakness - and triumph - Maryland men's basketball and Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse winning NCAA titles.

SPOKANE, Wash. -- Not so long ago, two years to be precise, Maryland entered an NCAA tournament regional semifinal played in the West. The Terps were full of youth and spunk but largely unknown to the rest of the women's basketball world, but made their mark then by taking out the defending national champion, Baylor, on the way to their own title. Two years later, Maryland again goes west for a Sweet 16 game, this time at the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena. But this time it is not a group of callow kids but rather well-worn veterans trying to regain their status against a scrappy Vanderbilt team looking to make its name in the game by taking out a heavyweight.

The phenomenal debut of New York Knicks' rookie Jeremy Lin -- a Harvard-educated Asian-American -- has stunned the basketball world. Lin was not offered a Division I scholarship, went undrafted after college, and was cut by two NBA teams this season. But he was picked up by the Knicks, and after warming the bench for a bit, has led the team to six straight wins. According to ESPN, in his first five games as a starter, he scored more points than any other NBA rookie -- including Shaq.
