Playing five-on-one has its obvious advantages as the Naval Academy basketball team proved last night in beating Gettysburg and its gang of one, Mark Borden, 85-63, before about 800 at Alumni Hall in Annapolis last night.Borden, a 6-foot-8 senior center, scored 22 of the Bullets' 26 points in the first half and accounted for all his team's baskets until John Brooks made a layup two minutes into the second half.That broke the spell, and Gettysburg, which trailed 41-26 at the half, closed to 45-35 on a three-pointer by Steve Gordon with 16:33 remaining.

Ballet Theatre of Maryland concluded its 36th season, and artistic director Dianna Cuatto's 11th, with its "Director's Choice" show last weekend, a performance that took the audience on an excursion to the edge of classic and contemporary dance. The program also showcased the versatility and strengths of Ballet Theatre's fine company of dancers and paid an apt tribute to favorites Valerie and Brian Walker - who gave their final performance on the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts stage before retiring from dancing.

This guy's a beast.” “We often wonder if he has gills.” Shana Hersh and Brian Walker are quick to praise their friend Franco Prezioso, a long-distance open-water swimmer from Bel Air. Of course, Prezioso is rarely around to hear it, as the 47-year-old Towson grad is often found doing 10-kilometer workouts in Bel Air's Arena Club pool. “That's ridiculous,” Walker said of Prezioso's routines. “I don't know how he does it.” And on the heels of finishing his longest race, the Extreme North Dakota Watersports Endurance Test, or END-WET, a 27-mile jaunt down the Red River on July 13, Prezioso is chest-deep in preparations for his next swim campaign: the Cape Circumnavigation Challenge, a 15.1-mile course around Cape May, N.J. “I love getting out there; I love swimming,” he said.

Fusing dance and drama, the Ballet Theatre of Maryland's season opener of Romeo and Juliet put a 21st century edge on Shakespeare's timeless tale of young lovers. It was danced to Prokofiev's 1938 ballet score -- which some call the greatest ever written -- but given entirely new choreography by artistic director Dianna Cuatto. She weaves her own fate symbolism of the gypsy fortune teller and tarot card with her joyous depiction of love that featured incredible lifts along with hatred displayed in intense sword fights.

The Ballet Theatre of Maryland closed its 2007-2008 season last weekend with memorable performances from the entire company in a new major work honoring an Annapolis ballet teacher. Dancers were also at the top of their form in preceding selections that included Italian Symphonette, a work choreographed earlier by Dianna Cuatto, and her Tango Dramatico, requested by four principal dancers: Bryan Skates, his wife, Jamie Skates, and principal dancers Alexis Decker and Christi Bleakly. Wherever these dancers appeared, they set higher standards than before, giving cause to celebrate along with the bittersweet realization that we will no longer be able to see their magic.

The name Scott Drapeau may not come up in a discussion of college basketball's better players, but it could by the time this season ends.Drapeau, a 6-foot-8 senior forward, has been playing in near anonymity for the University of New Hampshire in the sleepy New England town of Durham. Last Wednesday, he raised eyebrows by scoring 32 points and grabbing 21 rebounds in an upset of Miami of Ohio.A UMass transfer, Drapeau was almost as impressive in Annapolis last night, scoring 32 points, hitting six of eight three-pointers and snaring seven rebounds as the Wildcats edged Navy, 81-79, at Alumni Hall.

YOU CAN'T FOOL Mother Nature, the saying goes. But you can fool around with her.And humans have been fooling around with nature for centuries, particularly since the dawn of the Industrial Age. Humans pollute the air, mow down forests, cover the land with the concrete of roads, replace the natural skyline with skyscrapers, scoop fish out of the oceans, and dump fertilizer and pesticides all over the place.The problem with all this, many scientists say, is that humans aren't the earth's sole inhabitants.

If playing a nationally respected team like Stanford can be used as a measuring stick, the Navy basketball team did a lot of growing up last night before 1,817 at Alumni Hall.The final score of 80-62 was hardly an indication of how tough the Midshipmen (4-3) played the veteran-laden Cardinal, which was tabbed as a Top 25 team in most of the preseason polls.With 4:25 remaining, Navy trailed 63-56 after a three-point shot by Michael Heary (21 points). But Stanford (4-2) held the Mids without a field goal for the next four minutes and gained a commanding 77-57 lead.

After frittering away an early 20-point lead, the Naval Academy used a suffocating defense, strong rebounding from junior forward James Norris and repeated trips to the foul line to trim Florida Atlantic, 83-66, at Alumni Hall last night before a crowd of 1,141.Using the inside game of 6-foot-11 center Alex Kohnen and 6-foot-5 forward Wes Cooper, the Midshipmen (4-3) jumped out to a 33-13 lead in the first 13 minutes against the smaller Owls, playing only their second season of Division I ball.
