Item: Washington is abuzz with the shocking defeat of House majority Leader Eric Cantor in a Republican primary. David Brat, a tea party-inspired college professor with little money but plenty of energy, pulled off the historic upset. Most of the mainstream media coverage focused on Mr. Cantor's support (albeit tepid) for a set of immigration reform principles that some on the right interpreted as "amnesty" - and that such support was the primary cause of his loss at the hands of an unknown, underfunded candidate.

The transformation of the Maryland basketball team is not yet complete, as Mark Turgeon still has two roster spots left to fill if he so chooses. If Turgeon has learned anything from the tumultuous stretch that saw five players from last year's team leave for a variety of reasons, it is this: he and his staff have to do a better job recruiting players who will fit his system and accept roles that don't necessarily include being scorers or stars or even starters. In announcing Thursday that 7-foot Slovakian forward Michal Cekovsky had signed his letter of intent and 6-3 shooting guard Richaud Pack was transferring after graduating from North Carolina A&T, Turgeon was quick to talk about their character as much as their talent.

Less than a month after being named Maryland's director of basketball operations, Cliff Warren was promoted Tuesday to an assistant coach position. Warren, 46, replaces Scott Spinelli, who left last month for a similar position at Boston College. To fill the basketball operation job, Maryland hired Nima Omidvar, who spent the past three seasons as the video coordinator at North Carolina State. The addition of Warren gives Mark Turgeon the most experienced assistant he has ever had in his 16-year head coaching career.

The outrageously bigoted remarks attributed to the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team mock the positive role black athletes have played in professional sports, even as those sports have served as an exit ramp from poverty. Perhaps the most incredible of Clippers owner Donald Sterling's taped remarks came when his former girlfriend reminded him that he had a whole team made up of black players. His response was: "I support them and give them food and clothes and cars and houses.

Less than 24 hours before Coppin State introduced its new men's basketball coach, the players were searching for more information about who would lead them out of the Fang Mitchell era. The players met Michael Grant, their new coach, Tuesday morning, but minutes before the news conference, they grabbed at a pile of news releases near the podium to learn even more. To junior guard Sterling Smith, Grant was a man of mystery. "It's all new to us, new information," said Smith, who averaged 10.9 points last season.
