Long Reach started its four freshmen last week against Centennial and Hammond, and ended up losing both games by a total of three points. Lightning coach Kevin Broadus said his team was ahead of Centennial for much of the game before missed shots and turnovers proved costly. "With two minutes left we just couldn't score," said Broadus. "With seven seconds left Ashley Evans was fouled and she made both free throws." Evans' free throws were the difference in Centennial's 43-31 victory.

One night last month two incidents -- a music award and a killing -- pointed up the relationship between artistry and violence that defines Death Row Records, the nation's hottest producer of "gangsta rap" music:The debut album of Snoop Doggy Dogg, Death Row's charismatic superstar, took top honors at the Soul Train Music Awards. A few hours after the show, a 28-year-old fan was fatally stomped at a party the company threw for its out-of-town retailers and promoters.The slaying was the latest example of how Death Row's meteoric rise has been marked by violence and legal problems involving its key figures.

For the first two seasons of her basketball career at River Hill, Brittany Gordon had an unusual ability: the ability to disappear. Not that Gordon would walk off the court in a disguise or simply vanish a la David Copperfield. No, the 6-foot-4 center had a habit of allowing her shorter but equally skilled teammates to run the show, score the points, and grab the headlines while she labored to keep up on fast breaks, be a defensive presence, and endure elbows and body checks in the lane.

The first thing people notice about Howard's Aaron Graf is that, among high school players, his size is unusual for his position. Graf is 6 feet 4 and plays guard.That size, his mastery of a myriad of basketball skills and his academic prowess combine to make him an attractive college recruit.A number of Division III schools and a couple from Division I have displayed an interest in Graf, who leads Howard in assists (3.1) and is second in scoring (11.3) and rebounding (8.5)."He's done everything possible to get himself into college," Howard coach Kevin Broadus said.
