The night started with Brian O'Connor playing basketball, hitting jump shots in front of a large crowd, helping lead his team to an important victory. It ended with O'Connor in a hospital bed, his chest hooked up to a heart monitor, his doctors concerned whether he'd survive. In between, some of the most trying hours of 17-year-old Brian O'Connor's life played out before him. Hours that, for the moment, have taken one of Howard County's best athletes and turned him into a mere spectator.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Maryland baseball takes the field Sunday seeking a two-game sweep of rival Virginia in the NCAA super regional, and the stakes of Sunday's game, the second of a best-of-three series, are simple. A win by Maryland ends Virginia's season and sends the Terps to their first ever College World Series. A win by Virginia forces a decisive third game Monday afternoon. It's safe to say the Terps are going to go for it today, with coach John Szefc saying it was all hands on deck for his pitching staff.

Last night, Mount Hebron's match-up zone was a little bit better than Centennial's 2-3 zone.And the Vikings (4-1 overall, 3-0 league), who withstood a two-minute stall by Centennial (3-3, 3-1) at the beginning of the fourth period in addition to a 33 percent (13-for-40) shooting night, emerged as the only county team still undefeated in league play.On a clutch shot by Jonny Norman with 17 seconds left, and four steals in the final four minutes, Mount Hebron edged the visiting Eagles, 41-40.

Call it a role reversal. Call it a head turner. Or, if you prefer, just call it a good old-fashioned thumping. Anyway you slice it, Centennial's 73-53 win over No. 20 Long Reach yesterday was pretty darn impressive. Less than a month after being beaten by 20 points on the Lightning's home floor, Centennial returned the favor in its home gym, turning a 34-30 halftime lead into a 20-point runaway. Eagles seniors Scott Kincaid and Brian O'Connor combined for 45 points and helped Centennial pull to within one game of Long Reach in the league race.
