Muggsy Bogues has a score to settle with Bob Wade. It seems that at a celebrity roast for Bogues, Wade, his former coach at Dunbar, told a story about not being able to find his point guard before a Beltway Classic game against perennial power DeMatha. Wade, who will be honored tonight at a roast at Martin's West in Woodlawn by his former players and colleagues, said Bogues missed a bus that was to take the Poets to the Towson Center from the East Baltimore school. This occurred despite Wade's admonition that anyone not present when the bus was to leave would be left, regardless of their status on the team.

Anyone looking through the fence as the season's first football practice was about to get underway Wednesday at Dunbar's East Baltimore field saw a bunch of guys in helmets and shorts and T-shirts tossing footballs, stretching or just talking. Everything appeared the same as any other year and that's exactly what Dunbar athletic director Dana Johnson wanted as preseason practice began for the Poets and all other fall sports team at Maryland public schools. Despite being without coach Lawrence Smith, who is appealing a one-year suspension for his handling of an alleged locker-room hazing incident last fall, the Poets are moving on with business as usual under interim coach Michael Carter, the Poets' defensive coordinator for the past few years.

For five years, Rick Smith considered his job with the city's Recreation and Parks Department as something of a crusade to keep Gwynns Falls/Leakin Park clean and safe.He hunted down illegal dumpers and recruited volunteers to clean debris from the park, which is along Baltimore's western border. But Smith's crusade came to an abrupt end in April when he was reassigned across town to Patterson Park.Smith was transferred after he argued with Bob Wade, the former University of Maryland basketball coach who now works as the city's superintendent for recreation.

COLLEGE PARK -- With four minutes left in Saturday's Class 3A state title game, the City boys basketball team was beating Westlake by two points with its perfect season on the line. Coming out of a timeout, coach Daryl Wade sent out a small lineup, spread the floor and told his group to be patient. Mostly swinging the ball around the perimeter, the Knights' next two possessions ate up a good chunk of the remaining clock before senior guard Kamau Stokes found an easy path to the basket for two more points with 1:41 to play.

IT TAKES CHUTZPAH to accept an early-retirement buy-out from a $68,400-a-year Baltimore City job and then take a similar high-paying position in another municipal department. Retiring recreation superintendent Bob Wade, the former Dunbar High and University of Maryland basketball coach, almost succeeded in that double-dipping scam. Who can blame a guy for trying?Even more infuriating than Mr. Wade's audacity are the roles his boss, parks and recreation director Marlyn Perritt, and his would-be boss, school superintendent Walter G. Amprey, played in this scheme.

Part of the legacy from Bob Wade's days as Dunbar basketball coach is conflicting feelings. He would have to decide which pro or college games involving his former players he wanted to watch, and if former players were on opposing teams, he might have to decide which team to root for.These days, Wade faces the same conflict, with a twist.His son Daryl at City College, Rodney Coffield at Douglass and Herman Harried at Lake Clifton make up a trio of Wade's former players who coach in the city his Dunbar teams once dominated.

Lefty Driesell's career at Maryland was coming to an end when a sportswriter who had spent the first 10 years of his career in New York showed up to cover the Terrapins for The Baltimore Sun. It was the summer of 1985 and there were rumors that Driesell might be going back home to Norfolk to coach Old Dominion. Driesell, who was coming off the Terps winning an ACC tournament championship two seasons before, had told a paper down there that there was “a 50-50 chance” he would be leaving College Park after 17 seasons to coach the Monarchs.

For years, Sam Cassell would ask his son one question after the youngster finished playing basketball. “I'd say, 'Did you have fun?',” the older Cassell recalled. That changed as the namesake of the longtime NBA player and now Washington Wizards assistant coach started taking a more serious interest in the game. The older Cassell now asks his son whether the team won. When the younger Cassell returned home to Baltimore from prep school in Massachusetts last summer, something else had changed.

Dave Dickerson has often looked for stability in his college coaching career, in part because his own playing career at Marylandwas marked by instability - and tragedy. Recruited to play for Lefty Driesell, Dickerson had finished his freshman year in College Park when the team's star, Len Bias, died from a cocaine overdose in June of 1986. That fall, Driesell was fired. Dickerson's career at Maryland - the last three spent during Bob Wade's tumultuous stint - left such a sour taste that Dickerson didn't wear his school ring for nearly a decade.

It still hasn't sunk in. Gary Williams retiring? And this was his idea? You gotta be kidding me. I figured after 33 years as a head coach and 22 at Maryland, they'd have to literally drag him off the court, kicking and screaming and dropping F-bombs the whole way. Sure, he's 66 years old. But can you picture this guy doing anything but showing up to practice every day with a whistle around his neck? You know how some people can't fall asleep without a sound machine in the background?

About a year ago, Bob Wade took a tour of the Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards along with other state high school athletic administrators who were in the facility for a meeting. Wade, the legendary former football and basketball coach at Dunbar, had an idea what to expect - and what not to expect. "People who had taken the tour had told me there was hardly any basketball in there. Not just the professionals and the colleges, but no mention of Dunbar ... or any of the rich history of high school basketball," Wade, now the city schools' athletics director, said this week.

At first blush, it seems like a non sequitur: Dunbar, the most hallowed name in area basketball, is paying tribute to Bob Wade, the man who burnished the school's hoops reputation, by naming a football game after him. That doesn't really matter to Edwin Johnson, the president of Dunbar's alumni association, which is organizing tonight's Bob Wade Classic at Homewood Field at Johns Hopkins. Johnson's hope is that Wade's name and aura will draw some of the school's graduates back to the fold, with their wallets open, ready to assist the dear alma mater.
