Less than 24 hours after continually firing up three-pointers in an abysmal offensive display against Towson, the Coppin State men entered last night's consolation game at the Battle of Baltimore intent on taking better shots. Facing young Loyola, it was just the shot in the arm the Eagles needed. Paced by guard Jimmy Boykin's 27 points, Coppin erased the memories of Friday's 31 percent shooting performance by hitting 63 percent from the field, including 71 percent in the second half, in an 82-65 victory at the Towson Center.

Jimmy Boykin had trouble speaking last night. His voice - normally a smooth baritone - was dry and scratchy, the victim of a post-game celebration that had more whooping than high-fiving. No worries, though. His game had already said plenty. Boykin, Coppin State's only senior, hit four second-half three-pointers and finished with 19 points, helping the Eagles defeat rival Morgan State, 68-60, in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game before 4,525 at Hill Field House. It wasn't a perfect performance.

The Coppin State men's basketball team has taken its lumps over the first two months of the season, but all those difficult games on the road against big-time programs may benefit the Eagles in the long run. Last night, senior guard Jimmy Boykin registered a double double with 15 points and 10 rebounds, and sophomore Nicholas King added a game-high 19 points and nine rebounds to lead the Eagles to a 59-55 victory over Florida A&M at the Coppin Center....

St. Paul's midfielder Austin Boykin elicits praise from rival coaches as easily as from his own. "I like the way Austin plays. He was aggressive and in the flow of the game in terms of dodging and playing defense," said Gilman coach Brooks Matthews, after watching the 6-foot-1, 195-pound senior blow past several of his players to win 65 percent of his faceoffs and score a personal-best five goals. "He's tough on ground balls, a good shooter, just a tough kid and a compete, all-around middie."

RICHMOND, Va. -- All night long, Jimmy Boykin was one frustrated shooter. Nothing seemed to be going right on offense for the All-Mid Eastern Athletic Conference swingman, who hasn't had much success in the league tournament since Coppin State started playing on Wednesday. But as the final buzzer sounded at the Richmond Coliseum, Boykin's three-point shot swished through, lifting the Eagles to a dramatic 55-52 victory over Delaware State that carried them into the tournament championship game.

Two Baltimore men who kidnapped and robbed an off-duty city police officer were each sentenced yesterday to 45 years in prison. This month, a city jury convicted Timothy Brockington, 28, and Tyrone Gross, 34, of kidnapping, carjacking and robbery. The two were caught after the kidnapped and blindfolded officer freed himself and shot the two men with his service weapon. Officer Antwan Boykin, who joined the force in 1999, was in his personal car about 1:30 a.m. July 5, 2005, when three men approached him at a gas station in the 500 block of E. Mulberry St. One man drove off with Boykin's car while another forced Boykin at gunpoint into a burgundy Lincoln driven by a third man. Inside the Lincoln, Boykin was robbed and struck in the head with the gun as the car headed toward the 1100 block of Myrtle Ave. There, the pair blindfolded Boykin, walked him down an alley and talked about stashing him in a vacant rowhouse.

The number of cervical cancer cases diagnosed annually has gone down markedly over the past 30 years, a drop attributed to cervical cytology screening (the Pap smear). The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology recently changed its guidelines for cervical cancer screening. Dr. Diane Boykin of St. Agnes Hospital discusses what you need to know about the new guidelines. The new guidelines state that all Pap smears can begin at age 21. This is a subtle change from the previous recommendation, which had screening begin by age 21 or one to three years after the onset of sexual activity.

WASHINGTON - -Two things occurred Wednesday night that no one could have foreseen in training camp. One, on a team with three All-Stars, Washington Wizards coach Flip Saunders would draw up a final shot for Earl Boykins. And two, Boykins would step to the foul line with fans at Verizon Center chanting, "MVP! MVP!" But Boykins has been the difference for the Wizards during their recent run of success, and he again came up with a huge fourth-quarter performance as Washington defeated the Milwaukee Bucks, 104-102.
