COLLEGE PARK - Tommy Polley's name came up a lot in the past week as Dunbar was preparing to play in the boys basketball state tournament. It came up again yesterday after the Poets defeated Pocomoke, 69-56, to win the Class 1A championship at Comcast Center. The victory not only gave Dunbar its 10th state basketball title - an accomplishment that ranks it second overall with Gwynn Park behind Allegany, which has 14 - but it also gave the school championships in football and basketball in the same school year.

WASHINGTON - He is returning to the NBA after a three-year absence. He is a hyper-competitive perfectionist who has never handled losing well and is now with a team in the midst of a nearly two-decade slump. And you thought Michael Jordan is the only one who'll have to make major adjustments coming to the Washington Wizards. The roller-coaster ride is just starting for Doug Collins, the team's new coach. Buoyed by an enthusiastic training camp in Wilmington, N.C., Collins has often been frustrated by his team's inconsistent performance in a 2-4 exhibition season that continues tonight in Toronto against the Raptors.

COLLEGE PARK -- The 19th annual Capital Classic, this area's showcase for some of the best high school talent in the nation, had a familiar face and his star shone the brightest.Dunbar high school All-American Donta Bright scored a game-high 26 points, earning the Most Valuable Player award for the Capital All-Stars.Unfortunately for Bright, help from his teammates came a bit too late as the U.S. All-Stars held off the Capital team, 103-102, before a crowd of 10,092 at Cole Field House.Behind Bright's first 13 points, the Capital team had a 50-41 lead at the half, but the U.S. All-Stars scored the first 12 points of the second half to take a 53-50 lead.

In the locker room after South River's 72-70 overtime victory over host Glen Burnie on Friday, Coach Ken Dunn was telling his Seahawks that "success was an illusion."Simultaneously, Glen Burnie coach Terry Bogle stood in a distant hallway wishing he had dreamed the wholegame-ending sequence.His 5-3 Gophers, particularly 5-foot-10 senior guard Chris Collins (21 points, six assists, seven steals), had done all that Bogle asked to prevent the Seahawks (8-1) from winning their eighth straight game -- and their second consecutive overtime triumph.

In high school basketball, height sometimes can make the difference between a good team and an also-ran.Maybe Archbishop Spalding will find this out a little later in the season, when it begins play in the Maryland Scholastic Association C Conference.But for now, the Cavaliers, who boast five players 6-foot-3 or taller, just aren't getting the job done.A good reason for this maybe their schedule, the early part of which Coach Lee Dove calls "an NBA schedule." Spalding's first four games, including Friday's 119-67drubbing at the hands of an improved Glen Burnie squad, featured twoClass 4A public teams, one public 2A school (Howard County's Glenelg)

With nine fingers, Glen Burnie assistant basketball coach Mike Rudd could count the number of players on the Gophers' roster before Friday night's game at Severna Park.On four, he could list the number of close games lost. And on three, the number of lost players -- one starter to his family's relocation to another state, a reserve to a foot injury and still another who quit the team.But thanks to the 73-72 victory over an improved Falcons' squad -- and last week's 71-52 victory over Southern -- the 7-4 Gophers havea two-game winning streak.

With his 16th win in hand and the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament still ahead of him, Maryland coach Gary Williams felt like a man who had won a reprieve late Monday night.In his season of endless tribulation, Williams figured the Terps finally assured themselves of an NCAA tournament bid by beating Florida State."I think tying Duke for fourth in the ACC regular season gets us there," he said. "It's hard to take Duke without taking us. We're both 8-8 in the league."Hard, maybe, but not impossible.
