Ever since the Los Angeles Lakers traded Shaquille O'Neal to the Miami Heat in the summer of 2004 after eight seasons and three NBA championships, the Lakers have been little more than mediocre - or worse - with star guard Kobe Bryant going on almost nightly one-man scoring binges. The latest outburst came Sunday, when Bryant, playing at Staples Center in Los Angeles against the Toronto Raptors, scored a career-high 81 points, the second most in NBA history, exceeded only by Wilt Chamberlain's legendary 100-point game for the Philadelphia Warriors against the New York Knicks in 1962.

BOSTON - Even at the age of 38, silver-haired Gary Gait will tell you that winning championships never gets old. He should know. He is the reigning authority on the subject. Playing with the vigor of a rookie, Gait, the elder statesman of lacrosse, had six goals yesterday to lift the Bayhawks to their second Major League Lacrosse championship, with a convincing 15-9 win over the Long Island Lizards, before 6,829 at Boston University's Nickerson Field. Gait becomes the first player to play on three MLL title winners, taking the first one as a midfielder with the Lizards in 2001, and again the next season as a player-coach with the Bayhawks.

It took 51 years for Dan Murray to receive his golden jacket for winning the 1963 baseball championship with Calvert Hall, and he knows what he'll do with it now. "Probably encase it," Murray, 69, said with a chuckle. Murray, the starting pitcher in that championship game, said budget constraints or a simple oversight prevented the Cardinals receiving their jackets that season. It is a tradition at Calvert Hall for every member of a varsity championship team to receive a gold jacket.

Some of the best players in the state got their chance to shine last night in the Maryland Association of Coaches of Soccer & Umbro Boys All-State Soccer games at Johns Hopkins University's Homewood Field.For one player, however, doing his best meant not trying to do too much.After the first game ended in a 1-1 tie, Fallston's Shane Dougherty had a goal and an assist to help his North squad to a 2-1 win in the nightcap. For Dougherty, it was a case of mind over matter."If you try to do too much out there, you start messing up," said Dougherty, whose team finished 13-1-1.

Lost in the shuffle of perennial college football powers like th University of Miami, Florida State and Georgia, lies a small Division I-AA school down south that has won as many national titles in the past decade as those three put together.Starting nose guard Shawn Haralson says Georgia Southern University is "practically in the middle of nowhere." It's in Statesboro, Ga., right off the coast about 40 miles from Savannah.In his four-plus years there, the Westminster High grad has grown to love the area's fishing and hunting, not to mention "the nicest people you can meet in the world."

If the Chesapeake (upper) Division boys basketball champs from Joppatowne thought they were going to skate to a victory at Wednesday's UCBAC Championship game, they didn't consult the Susquehanna (lower) Division representatives from Bel Air, who pulled to within two in the game's final 30 seconds before the Mariners cemented a 61-55 victory. With the victory, the Mariners pulled off the seldom-seen UCBAC feat of taking the Chesapeake and conference titles during their first season following promotion from the Susquehanna Division.

It's the first question on many people's lips when they meet Maika Polamalu. "'Are you related to Troy?'" recounted the Navy junior linebacker, who is first cousins with the Pittsburgh Steelers strong safety. "That's always the first thing. It doesn't matter where I am or what I'm doing. That's always the first question. " It's an inquiry that might grate someone with a thinner skin, but Maika (pronounced MY-kuh) Polamalu, 21, just smiles. "I'm proud of my cousin, and I'm proud of his accomplishments," he said.

Ray May doesn't go out much. It's hard to get around when both of your hips are shot, and your legs go numb, and you need a cane, maybe two, to walk. Nine years of playing professional football wore him down. At 68, May - a starting linebacker on the Baltimore Colts' 1971 Super Bowl championship team - will need multiple surgeries to regain his footing. "Hobbling everywhere you go is as demeaning as it gets," he said from his home in Los Angeles. "Right now, I'm fighting with the NFL [to help pay for]

Maryland's game against Old Dominion on Saturday marks the beginning of the end of an era. The Terps plan to phase out games against Football Championship Subdivision opponents in the coming years. But Maryland (1-0, 0-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) knows better than to relax against the Monarchs. The Terps ' own history - and recent upsets of other major-conference teams by FCS schools - show them why it's not a good idea to overlook Old Dominion. Last week, eight FCS schools upset Football Bowl Subdivision squads, including Towson over Connecticut, 33-18; Eastern Washington over Oregon State, 49-46; and North Dakota State over Kansas State, 24-21.

He's the forgotten Oriole, one who helped the club soar in 1966 and then fell off the radar. Brooks, Frank and Boog were stars in that championship season. But who remembers Russ Snyder? "I had a pretty good year, too," said Snyder, 79. Did he ever. A slap-hitting, sharp-fielding outfielder, Snyder batted .306 for the World Series champion Orioles that year. He led the American League in hitting (.347) at the All-Star break. His glove served the team down the stretch.

Baltimore City College is celebrating another historic title this week, as national champions of the prestigious National Association for Urban Debate League Championship, held in Washington, D.C. last week. The school's team won the title after engaging in a heated debate about whether the U.S. federal government should substantially increase its transportation infrastructure investment in the country, according to a release from the school. The school's debate team--students Sophie Bauerschmidt Sweeney and Dikshant Malla successfully--took on the affirmative, using the federal government's response to Hurricane Katrina, to seal its victory against Chicago's Whitney Young High School in a 2-1 decision.

If it had not been for Henry V, William Shakespeare migh have had the regal Chicago Bulls in mind when the bard wrote, "Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown."The Bulls are certainly a restless and cantankerous bunch these days when their every game and every utterance tends to become the subject of psychoanalysis.They are winning at a .731 pace, second only to the on-fire Phoenix Suns (.833). But because most of their victories have come after a fourth-quarter rally or a spectacular offensive show by Michael Jordan, courtside critics are questioning their commitment to their three-peat quest.

CHICAGO -- Whiners or winners?The Chicago Bulls have been called both this season, though lately the former characterization has been tossed around considerably more than the latter.However, one thing is certain, Horace Grant said as the Bulls and the New York Knicks head into tonight's Game 5 of this rough-and-tumble best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinals tied at two games."The Bulls' whole team has to look within ourselves, get a little meaner, a little more aggressive, and take it to them," Grant said yesterday.

Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata watched Sunday's AFC divisional playoff game between the New England Patriots and Houston Texans closely, homing in on what each offense was doing and the battles in the trenches. He wasn't openly rooting for either team, but in his mind - and he says in the minds of other Ravens - there was one scenario that the team preferred: a trip back to Gillette Stadium for an opportunity to go to the Super Bowl. "I think we, personally, kind of wanted to play the Patriots again," Ngata said.
