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.

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.

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.

BOSTON -- At first, the two aging gangsters don't recognize Rick Marinick as he glides through the old neighborhood. He's usually behind the wheel of a junker with chipped paint, not his wife's shiny import, so it takes a beat before scowls turn to schoolboy grins and the men shout out greetings. Marinick waves back. The old South Boston Irish mobsters might as well be family, and these one-way streets are home: taverns where he and local boys planned bank heists, parking lots where federal agents eavesdropped, hoping to catch stray shop talk among members of the notorious Winter Hill gang, the lonely stretch of Sugar Bowl beach where enforcers kept bookies and gamblers in line.

BOSTON UNIVERSITY* WHEN: Tonight, 7:30 p.m.* WHERE: Cole Field House.* TV/RADIO: WBAL-AM 1090.* OUTLOOK: Last season's 65-61 loss to the Terriers on a cold, snowy night in a drafty, nearly-empty Boston Garden after a thrilling road win over Virginia was easily the lowest point of the year for Maryland.

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.

A panel of scholars at Boston University has decided that the doctorate earned there by the late Martin Luther King Jr. in 1956 should not be revoked even though his dissertation contains plagiarisms that were disclosed last year, shocking admirers of the slain civil rights leader.Instead, the Boston University committee, in a report released yesterday, recommended that a disciplinary letter noting the scholarly improprieties be attached to the official copy of King's theology dissertation in the school's library.
