The Loyola men's basketball team has reasserted itself into the hunt for the Patriot League regular-season title with back-to-back wins against Lehigh on Saturday and Lafayette on Monday. With a 3-2 record in the conference, the team sits in fifth place in the standings. The Greyhounds (8-8 overall) are 5-2 at Reitz Arena, including 3-0 against Patriot League foes, but they are winless in two road games in the conference. Coach G.G. Smith knows that record is going to have to change as the team prepares to visit Boston University on Monday and Bucknell on Wednesday.

Maryland men's basketball assistant Scott Spinelli is in "serious negotiations" to become an assistant under new Boston College coach Jim Christian, Terps coach Mark Turgeon said Monday. "Nothing's final yet," Turgeon said. Spinelli did not respond phone calls and text messages from The Baltimore Sun.  Spinelli, who came with Turgeon from Texas A&M, grew up outside Boston and recruits heavily in New England. He was instrumental in the Terps landing Jake Layman out of high school and bringing in Evan Smotrycz when he transferred from Michigan.

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.

Coming off a humbling 13-2 loss to then-No. 18 Lehigh on Saturday, Navy still finds itself in a good spot with regard to qualifying for the Patriot League tournament. With a 2-2 conference record, the Midshipmen (3-4) currently sit in sixth place in the league. They are one game ahead of Boston University (1-2 in the conference and 1-6 overall) in the win column and are tied with Bucknell (2-2, 4-4), which owns the tiebreaker via a 9-6 win against Navy on Feb. 22. The top six teams advance to the Patriot League tournament.
