LOS ANGELES — Phil Jackson said it with a wry smile, like he does a lot of things, so it was impossible to know if the Lakers coach was kidding before Game 5 of the Western Conference finals when he said he was "very nervous" and "quite worried." It turned out there was plenty to fret. Except the ending. Ron Artest cut across the lane to grab an errant Kobe Bryant 3-pointer and tossed it in as time expired to give the Lakers an exhilarating 103-101 victory over the Suns on Thursday at the Staples Center.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon said he talked to his players at halftime of their National Invitation Tournament quarterfinal against Alabama about Frazier-Ali, Michael Jackson and other great performances at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Now, Maryland will get a chance to end its season with one of its own. The No. 2-seeded Terps weathered a late surge from the No. 1-seeded Crimson Tide on Tuesday night, winning 58-57 in Coleman Coliseum and earning a trip to Madison Square Garden for next week's NIT semifinals.

Edmondson guard Darius Walker learned from something that happened earlier this season, and that lesson helped the Red Storm win its first state title Saturday night. Walker snaked through traffic and made a driving left-handed bank shot as time expired to give No. 5 Edmondson a 56-54 victory over Wicomico in the Class 2A state title game at the University of Maryland's Comcast Center, the school's first championship in basketball. Fresh in Walker's mind was his choice at the end of regulation in the Baltimore City title game against No. 1 Dunbar last month.

Not since Drew Nicholas beat UNC Wilmington in 2003 had a Maryland Terrapin hit a buzzer-beating shot of the sort that Cliff Tucker rained down on Georgia Tech on Saturday before a frenzied sellout crowd at Comcast Center. Tucker's heroics might not have come in the NCAA tournament as Nicholas' did, but the junior guard's corner jumper carried its own set of circumstances that made it an instant classic. Tucker's 3-pointer -- the buzzer sounded while the shot was in the air -- beat Georgia Tech, 76-74, to keep Maryland undefeated (6-0)

Junior BJ Smith ( Overlea) banked in a 65-foot shot at the buzzer, completing Widener's rally from a 16-point second-half deficit for a 71-70 Commonwealth Conference victory over visiting Lebanon Valley on Saturday. Smith made a 3-pointer from the left corner with 2.3 seconds to bring the Pride (9-6, 4-1) to within two, then Sam Diaz missed the front end of a one-and-one that could have iced the game for the Dutchmen (9-6, 1-4). Senior Jarrell Nelson grabbed the rebound and gave the ball on the right side to Smith, who made the buzzer-beater, giving Widener its first lead since 8-7 with 14:24 left in the first half.

It took No. 9 Arundel nearly four quarters Wednesday night to establish what looked to be a secure lead in the final moments of the Anne Arundel County boys basketball championship game against Annapolis. It took Panthers junior Juan Brown one flick of the wrist to swipe it right back. Brown's steal, length-of-the-court drive and layup as time expired capped a stunning 8-0 run to give the Panthers a 51-49 win against the regular-season county champions at Chesapeake. Tied at 49, the Wildcats inbounded the ball with 12 seconds left, looking to finish off a game they had led by six with under two minutes to play.

Ball movement and trusting teammates are two things the Milford Mill boys basketball team preaches on offense. The No. 5 Millers found an ideal example in the closing seconds against No. 10 Edmondson in the final night of the 17th annual Basketball Academy at Morgan State. Holding the ball for the last shot with 30 seconds left in a tie game, sophomore guard Justin Jenifer started his move to the basket with seven seconds left. When the Red Storm defense collapsed on him, he found senior guard Davonte Williams in the left corner.

The Arundel boys basketball team wasn't about to make the same mistake twice. Leading No. 15 Centennial by one point with two seconds left in the District V championship game Wednesday, the No. 9 Wildcats couldn't help but think back to two games earlier against Old Mill - when a buzzer-beating layup had spoiled their undefeated season. So this time, as Centennial's Omari Ringgold (15 points) caught a length-of-the-court pass at the foul line and turned to shoot, Arundel made sure it was there with a hand up. Ringgold's contested shot glanced off the rim as time expired, giving Arundel a 53-52 victory.

It's been tough sledding of late for the Patterson boys basketball team. Previously No. 1 in our poll, the Clippers (8-5) followed Friday's 64-55 loss to rival Dunbar with an 89-63 loss Saturday to St. Benedict's at the Dan Finn Classic in Jersey City and a 75-73 defeat on a buzzer-beater Monday at Gonzaga (D.C.). But those results never get in the way of enjoying an Aquille Carr highlight reel. Here are a couple videos from Monday's game from TheMarsReel.com (which includes the game-winner by Gonzaga's Kris Jenkins)

Former Walbrook star Roscoe Smith is having a solid freshman season at Connecticut. A two-time Baltimore Sun All-Metro selection , Smith has averaged 6.7 points and 5.3 rebounds for the Huskies this season. But one of his highlights keeps showing up on "SportsCenter," and it's not for a good reason. Smith has been the reigning "worst of the worst" champion on ESPN since he missed a game-winning, buzzer-beating halfcourt heave against Texas two months ago. There's no shame in that, right?
