It was a little before 10 Tuesday night, and Shawnta Little had just given her son his five-minute warning. A few minutes later, she heard a beating on the door that would lead to nearly 48 hours in Johns Hopkins Children's Center, where after continuous prayer and medical tests, Little would make the final decision of her 12-year-old son's life: letting his body succumb to the gun shots that had left him brain dead. "We just kept praying, and they did every test they could do to be absolutely sure," Little said, a day after she authorized doctors to take her son off life support.

COLLEGE PARK --  With 26 consecutive wins behind it and just nine seconds ahead in a masterful season, the No. 1 City boys basketball team was finally able to celebrate. The Knights' work was complete against pesky Westlake in the Class 3A state final, and coach Daryl Wade removed his starters for the final ticks so they could savor what was about to come - the final buzzer, and a final score: City 59, Westlake, 48. The team's goals going into the season were winning Baltimore City and state championships.

City Boy, by Jean Thompson. Simon & Schuster. 320 pages. $24. In every collision that occurs when a marriage shatters, the participants somewhere pass an inexorable fork in the road: This way safety and normalcy and civilized behavior, that way everything else. Sadly, that turning has no marker, and many marital combatants (traveling either separately or together), pass it in the dark, only later realizing that it must have been back there somewhere. But where? This topography -- the dark and punishing terrain of the broken human heart -- is flawlessly charted by Jean Thompson in City Boy. Thompson's opening sentence sets an appropriately ominous tone: "They had a bad neighbor."

COLLEGE PARK - All season, the undefeated City boys basketball team had been careful not to look past the next game, safely keeping the ultimate goal of winning the Class 3A state championship at arm's length. In Thursday's state semifinal against Urbana - with the next game finally the big one - the No. 1 Knights were clearly excited at the prospect of no longer having to wait. Setting a fast early pace, City took charge with a dominating first half and then withstood a third-quarter push from the Hawks to win going away, 56-36, at the University of Maryland's Comcast Center.

Timothy Devine, an Eastern District shift commander. As Dombroski approached, the pair split and ran, with the officer chasing the suspected dealer, Devine said.

The undefeated City boys basketball team was clearly amped up to get the playoffs started, and that showed early in Tuesday's game against visiting Poly. First, Timmy Bond went over a defender to get above the rim and dunk home two points early in the first quarter. Less than a minute later, Kamau Stokes finished off a nifty reverse layup in transition. The No. 1 Knights attacked the basket relentlessly, hit their open jumpers and methodically separated themselves from the Engineers to come away with a 78-66 win in the Class 3A East Section I semifinal.

For the first three-plus quarters of Saturday's Baltimore City Division I boys basketball championship game, scrappy Lake Clifton was doing all the little things a little bit better against No. 1 and undefeated City. And then, City senior guards Kamau Stokes and Omari George had seen enough. First it was Stokes who hit a big 3-pointer. Then it was George's turn. He scrapped for an offensive rebound, got fouled and made two free throws. The next possession George did the same, this time making the follow shot and converting a three-point play.

All season, the No. 1 City boys basketball team has been able to capably handle everything sent its way. On Tuesday, No. 9 Patterson provided a significant test through four quarters, only to see the Knights respond to each push. Omari George scored a team-high 23 points, Kamau Stokes added 14 and Timmy Bond scored 13 as City stayed perfect at 16-0 with a resilient, 69-62, home win over the Clippers.. Answers for the Knights came at both ends of the court, taking the form of a big blocked shot attempt by Bond, an extra pass by George or Bond for easy baskets and a big rebound or two from Juwan or John Grant.

City senior guard Omari George said the Knights' No. 1 priority going into the season was improving on their ability to close out games, citing last year's playoff loss to Milford Mill as the biggest reason why. In the highly-anticipated rematch against the Millers in Saturday's finale of the 18th Annual Basketball Academy at Morgan State, the Knights didn't have to concern themselves with a strong finish. In a showdown between the No. 1 and 2 teams in the area, it was top-ranked City that started fast and maintained a safe lead throughout to come away with a 65-53 win over the No. 2 Milford Mill.

One of the areas the City boys basketball team most wanted to improve on was closing out games in the fourth quarter. The No. 4 Knights had an opportunity Thursday against pesky Woodrow Wilson (D.C.). Some big baskets, key stops and enough free throws down the stretch provided an early-season answer as City came away with a 76-69 win over the Tigers at Forest Park's Spark at the Park. Trailing 55-53 early in the fourth quarter, the Knights went on a 9-0 run to pull away for the win. A balanced effort on offense got the job done, with Kamau Stokes and Omari George each finishing with 19 points, Timmy Bond adding 16 and Juwan Grant scoring 10. City improved to 3-0 on the season, while Wilson fell for the first time and is now 2-1. "The fourth quarter, we wanted to have the same intensity we started the game with because we knew if we didn't pick it up, they would come back," Bond said.

The No. 8 City boys basketball team gained a lot from a 68-53 win over No. 12 Poly on Friday in a regular-season finale that helped to determine the final spot in next week's Baltimore City Division I championship game. A strong collective effort led the Knights (17-5, 10-2 in Baltimore City Division I) to the victory over the visiting Engineers. The win helped City put aside the disappointing performance that came in Tuesday's 61-45 home loss to No. 3 Dunbar. But City's win ultimately proved to help No. 6 Edmondson the most as the Red Storm, which defeated Patterson on Friday, 70-52, advanced to play defending champion Dunbar in Tuesday's Division I city championship at Morgan State.
