Major League Lacrosse is planning on starting the 2015 season earlier than in the past, with April 11 as the proposed start date, two weeks earlier than the 2014 season began. The final regular-season game in the National Lacrosse League is set for May 2, meaning there will be more overlap between MLL and NLL seasons if MLL starts earlier. The MLL also is experimenting with ways to make the ball more visible on TV, including changing the color or adding a stripe, after trying a smooth, orange ball last season.

Navy football Feinstein steps down from analyst role John Feinstein has left the Navy football radio booth after 14 years as an analyst, he announced on his blog Wednesday. Why? Well, it's sort of complicated. Feinstein wrote that he had long been trying to get made an Army-Navy football documentary based on his book "A Civil War," pitching the project to CBS Sports, among others. Then he learned last week that CBS would indeed be making a two-hour documentary on the game, to be shown in full on Showtime and in a shorter form on CBS. But they'll be doing it without Feinstein.

Ten minutes before the start of practice at the Annapolis Area Christian School on Thursday night, Adrian Bowie was slouched over in a chair, waiting patiently in the lobby adjacent to the Kilby Athletic Center's main basketball court. He'd tossed the black-and-white Maryland Under Armour backpack slung over his shoulders onto the ground next to him, and he joked with some teammates as the doors to the gymnasium were finally swung open. The glistening court beckoned. As Bowie filed onto the hardwood behind 26-year-old guard/stand-up comedian Terry Hosley, general manager John Wolfe - a man with admittedly no basketball experience - looked on from the sideline.
