Having gone three consecutive years without an appearance in the Patriot League tournament, Navy is close to ending that streak. A pair of wins against Lafayette (11-3 on March 7) and Boston University (13-7 on Saturday) means that the Midshipmen (4-5 overall and 3-3 in the conference) own head-to-head tiebreakers over the Leopards (1-7, 1-4) and Terriers (1-8, 1-4). Those tiebreakers could be significant for Navy, which currently sits in sixth place in the league. The top six teams qualify for the Patriot League tournament, which runs from April 22 to 27. “We're certainly in the driver's seat, if you will,” coach Rick Sowell said Tuesday morning.

No. 1 Loyola Maryland is one win away from doing something it has not done before. If the Greyhounds (10-1 overall and 6-0 in the Patriot League) can defeat Boston University (1-9, 1-5) on Saturday at 12 p.m., they will host the conference tournament semifinals April 25 and the final two days later at Ridley Athletic Complex. Loyola never hosted the Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament, which was awarded to the previous year's regular-season champion. Denver hosted that league's tournament in 2011 and 2012, and when the Greyhounds won the title in 2012, the ECAC elected to switch the host site to Hobart.

Last week, Ed DeChellis thought issues on defense had contributed to the Navy men's basketball team's three-game losing streak. Now the coach is worried about the other end of the floor. The Midshipmen struggled mightily on offense Tuesday night, scoring just 13 points on 5 of 30 shooting in the first half en route to a demoralizing 55-32 loss to Patriot League rival Boston University. Navy dropped to 6-8 overall and 1-2 in the conference and squandered a chance to build on the momentum of Sunday's 79-71 win over Lafayette on Sunday.

ATLANTA -- For Jerrold Gales, beside the reflecting pool of the Martin Luther King memorial here, Boston University's fight to keep a collection of King's papers isn't a matter of legal arguments. It has more to do with the lump he feels in his throat as he looks at the civil-rights leader's Georgia crypt."This is just an extraordinary place," Mr. Gales said on a visit from Fort Worth, Texas. "Those papers belong here, where everything else is. For me, it shouldn't even be a question."That view is felt powerfully by many Atlantans, black politicians and participants in the civil rights struggle, many of whom compare the King memorial to the Kennedy Library in Boston and express anger and frustration that a piece of King's legacy, so vital to the black community, is being kept out of their hands.
