After starting fast but finishing poorly in its first two games, the Morgan State football team flipped the script Saturday. The Bears overcame a lethargic start, woke up their sleeping offense and scored all four of the game's touchdowns in the second half to knock off visiting Bowie State, 28-3, before an announced 4,238 at Hughes Stadium. Morgan State was happy to win its first game of the season, but Bears first-year coach Lee Hull said the team can ill afford slow starts.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Catcher Chris Robinson returned to Orioles camp on Wednesday after playing a key role in a brawl in last week's World Baseball Classic pool play game between Canada and Mexico. Robinson, the starting catcher for Canada, reached on a bunt single in the ninth inning with Canada comfortably leading Mexico 9-3. The Mexican team didn't like that, and Mexico pitcher Arnold Leon threw two pitches near the next batter, Rene Tosoni, before plunking him with the third. That incited a benches clearing brawl.

A Morgan State defense that finished 2013 ranked eighth in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in average yards allowed (391.8) and ninth in average points surrendered (30.6) could be weaker after the departure of five starters. But the Bears return three of four linebackers who earned a majority of starts last season, and that group was cited by rookie head coach Lee Hull as being critical to leading the defense. “We're really counting on those guys to be the anchor of our defense,” Hull said Tuesday during the MEAC's weekly conference call.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- For one overcast afternoon this fall, the inside of a nondescript white warehouse is transformed into a hip-hop paradise.In one corner, scantily clad young women jump on a larger-than-life bed, squealing as they try to keep from falling out of their outfits. Down the cavernous hall, another group of beauties puts on final touches of makeup before they climb atop stages built to simulate a strip club. Nearby, rap music artists Fat Joe and Big Pun await their cues.In the center, surrounded by elaborate sets, cables, light and cameras, stands Chris Robinson, an island of calm in the sea of hectic action that he has orchestrated.

When Chris Robinson took over McDonogh's girls lacrosse team last season, the Eagles were coming off an 8-13-2 season with only one win against an A Conference team. At that point, Robinson, who had coached Mount Hebron to five straight state titles, found the Eagles eager to learn his style of coaching and set their program on the upswing. Nobody expected it to rise so fast. Last season, the Eagles won the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A2 Conference, going 17-2 overall and 4-2 against opponents in the elite A1 Conference.

Chris Robinson had been offered the kind of film scripts you would expect an award-winning director of rap and hip-hop videos to receive -- action movies, violent movies, comedies. All predictable, none worthwhile. A native of Harford County, Robinson wanted his first feature film to be like the movies he grew up watching and loving -- films like Diner and Do the Right Thing. He didn't want to make a movie about thugs, and he didn't want to make a movie that was little more than explosions and car chases.

McDonogh's girls lacrosse players put the finishing touch on their historic 104th straight victory Thursday afternoon with a raucous celebration. The celebration alone made it clear that the No. 1 Eagles had accomplished something special with their 18-10 win over No. 12 St. Paul's. They're usually all smiles but all business after every win, but it isn't everyday that a team breaks a national record, so coach Chris Robinson urged them to revel in the moment. The players happily obliged, squealing and yelling as they raced into a huge huddle on their home field.

As McDonogh's girls lacrosse winning streak ballooned toward a record-tying 103 games, the top programs along the East Coast wanted a crack at ending the Eagles' run.

For the third straight year, the Eagles opened their season at Vero Beach, Fla., beating three nationally-ranked teams - including Vero Beach, which was ranked second behind the Eagles in one national preseason poll. Then, the Eagles came home to go after their sixth straight title in what is widely considered the toughest conference in the country, the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference.

McDonogh's Miranda McCoy said her No. 1 Eagles learned an important lesson in Monday's scare at No. 5 Century - they don't want to get off to a slow start. The Eagles applied that lesson in Thursday's clash of the area's only two undefeated girls lacrosse teams, scoring three goals in the first two and a half minutes to spark a 19-9 victory over No. 6 Marriotts Ridge for their 88 t h straight victory. Those three early goals from Megan Whittle, Casey Black and Grace Muller were the opposite of what happened Monday at Century, when the Knights scored the first three goals and the Eagles had to rally for a 10-7 win. "We came out flat mentally against Century," McCoy said.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Right-hander Jair Jurrjens was hoping to show the Orioles once more what he can do on the mound before the club makes its final roster decisions. A line drive off the bat of Thomas Neal ended Jurrjens' last audition 21 pitches into Wednesday night's Grapefruit League game. The New York Yankees designated hitter smashed a comebacker right at Jurrjens, who instinctively turned to the side and was struck in the right ribs. He immediately left the game, two batters into the second inning.
