The white brick colonial sits atop a grassy hill on a quiet street in Baltimore County. Inside, framed recent and sepia-toned family photos adorn the living room, where there's a red brick fireplace, plush cream carpet and clover-green leather furniture. This comfortable, middle-class home seems like an unlikely place to mix and edit a hardcore rap CD. But for most of the morning, that has been the main business in the basement's makeshift studio. If you go See Bossman as part of the Hip Hop LIVE!

For Loyola College freshman small forward Bobby Bossman, this is a season of dedication. He is playing in memory of his sister, Brooke, who died at the age of 20 after an asthma attack during a club volleyball practice at Ohio University on Oct. 31, 2001. "She was my only sister," said Bossman, who was a senior at Strongsville (Ohio) High outside Cleveland at the time of her death. "It was only me and her. We were definitely a lot closer than a lot of other siblings." Inscribed on the tape protecting his right ankle before every game are his sister's initials "BMB," her high school basketball number 23 and his number 22 at Loyola.

The heat is blazing. But Mark Whitten sits coolly in his red Cadillac parked in the Mondawmin shopping center in West Baltimore. Window down. Music playing. His mind is focused on making the sale. On a good day, he may sell up to 75 CDs. "These parking lots are like the ocean. We are like sharks trying to get a dollar and a buzz," says Whitten, a recent marketing graduate from Morgan State University. He leans out of the window, smoothly nods, calls out to a woman walking by and pulls out the product: local rapper Bossman's Law and Order CD. It's this kind of pop-the-trunk, on-the-street type hustling that helped Whitten's friend, Bossman, ink a deal in May with Virgin Records.

Scott Hicks shook up his Loyola College lineup, and UMBC in the process. It's time for substantial change when you've got a 12-50 record a month into your third season with the Greyhounds, four straight losses and another four-game losing streak to a cross-town rival, so Hicks went with three new starters last night at Reitz Arena. It paid immediate dividends, as Loyola never trailed after the second minute and rolled to a 62-43 win over the Retrievers. "That's as hard as we've been played against in a couple of years," UMBC coach Tom Sullivan said after Loyola's most lop-sided win since February 1999.

It's probably safe to say that the Loyola Greyhounds - losers of three straight games entering last night's matchup with Central Connecticut - did not suddenly mature overnight. It only looked that way. Loyola, which has only one senior on its roster, was nearly flawless in the second half against Central Connecticut State, hitting 11 of its first 14 shots after intermission to earn a 65-63 victory at Reitz Arena. Sophomore Bernard Allen led the way for the Greyhounds with 21 points and freshman Bobby Bossman added 19 as Loyola (3-7)

Lawyers for the two jail officers facing dismissal for their roles in the Dontay Carter escape went to court yesterday to try to spread the blame for the convicted murderer's freedom flight.An assistant attorney general representing the state Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services replied that no matter the circumstances, the officers' failure to follow security policies led to the escape and that department policy dictates they be fired.During a hearing before a state administrative law judge, lawyers for the correctional officers, Frank Beales and Irvin Curtis, said Judge John N. Prevas, who presided over Carter's two trials in Baltimore Circuit Court, fostered a tense, hurry-up atmosphere in which the officers dared not question his decision to allow Carter to use the bathroom in the judge's chambers.

The woes of the winless Loyola men's basketball team persisted last night. Poor shooting pushed the Greyhounds behind by too much too early and they never recovered while losing their 27th consecutive game, 81-59, to Siena before 711 at Reitz Arena. Moreover, the already short-handed team may be missing another player Friday when it attempts again to end the nation's longest Division I slide. Swingman Bobby Bossman turned an ankle with 6:40 remaining, leaving Loyola (0-14, 0-5) with only eight able-bodied players entering its meeting with Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference power Niagara.

TRENTON, N.J. - It's been a tough season for the Loyola men, their worst in a decade. Mercifully, it came to a close last night in the opening round of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament when the No. 10 seed Greyhounds absorbed a 62-39 pasting by No. 5 Iona. Loyola trailed just 25-20 at halftime, raising hopes for an upset. But the Greyhounds shot just 23.1 percent in the second half (27.1 percent for the game) and put the capper on a 4-24 season, second only to the 2-27 mark of 1992-93 for ineptitude.

Like the snow outside Loyola's Reitz Arena, the losses have piled up this month for the Greyhounds. The latest was also the most lopsided of this long season as the Greyhounds (4-22, 1-16 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) went the first 10 minutes without a field goal and dropped their 11th straight game, 82-45, to Iona last night. Loyola was never in it, falling behind 8-1 in the first five minutes and 22-3 before Lindbergh Chatman sank the Greyhounds' first field goal with 9:28 left in the first half.

The peon has a pen, and no boss is safe. Books by former assistants about their bosses are hot. From Park Avenue nannies to magazine underlings to stock market whiz kids, everyone, it seems, is using the boss as fodder for a memoir or a satire or a novel. And readers are consuming these books with hearty gusto. So here goes: The Bossman ate Jell-O. Red, mostly, and no Cool Whip -- please -- he hated the stuff. The Bossman also hated paper clips, and bad writing and people who "weren't serious."
