An expected snowfall overnight could have brought fourth and fifth consecutive days of snow at BWI Marshall Airport, but it wasn't to be. After a series of fast-moving light snowfalls, the weather is expected to quiet through the weekend. While various models showed at least a dusting of snow, and maybe a few inches, in the Baltimore area, the precipitation did not make it out of the mountains. Some in western Allegany County reported to the National Weather Service's Baltimore/Washington forecast office as much as 5 inches of snow out west, while in Hagerstown, snow totaled 0.8 inches.

One week after failing to score a single point in its season opener, the Patterson football team entered Friday's I-95 Kickoff Classic at Morgan State looking for a fresh start. The Clippers quickly burried those bitter memories, scoring on the game's opening possession and going on to a 21-0 win over Baltimore City rival Poly. "[Starting strong] was very important," running back Anthony Partlow said. "We had to just come out here and execute our plays. We just had to do what we had to do to win this game today.

The outrageously bigoted remarks attributed to the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team mock the positive role black athletes have played in professional sports, even as those sports have served as an exit ramp from poverty. Perhaps the most incredible of Clippers owner Donald Sterling's taped remarks came when his former girlfriend reminded him that he had a whole team made up of black players. His response was: "I support them and give them food and clothes and cars and houses.

Aquille Carr scored 61 points for Patterson when the Clippers played Forest Park last year. But he didn't need to do as much this time, and that made coach Harry Martin a happy man. Carr finished with a game-high 24 points, as No. 3 Patterson defeated No. 8 Forest Park, 79-63 on Monday night. Patterson not only had Carr's complete play, but benefited from strong performances by Nymee Manns, Devin Hebron and Leonard Livingston. This game didn't affect the Baltimore City standings, but a Patterson win over Carver later this week secures the Clippers a spot to play No. 7 Dunbar in the Division I title game, probably next week.

The buzz that filled Patterson's packed gym Tuesday was centered on two of the area's most dynamic guards: Lake Clifton senior Josh Selby and the home team's freshman sensation, Aquille Carr. The two standouts didn't disappoint, taking turns dazzling the crowd with an array of baskets inside and on the perimeter. With the two players basically offsetting each other - Carr taking game-high honors with 39 points and Selby right behind with 36 - the difference proved to be the No. 10 Lakers' intensity in the second half.

LANDOVER -- No matter how bad it gets in the NBA, no matter how many games you lose, there's usually one team that you know you can correct all your problems against.Last night the Washington Bullets almost had all of their recent progress nullified, and nearly became that team.Against the Los Angeles Clippers, the league's worst team, the Bullets trailed by 15 points in the second half. But a game after they blew an 18-point lead in a loss to the Golden State Warriors, this time it was Washington staging the comeback and escaping with a 93-87 win.It was the fourth win in the last six games for the Bullets, who played the second half without Scott Skiles, who picked up two technical fouls in a nine-second span of the second quarter.

Late in Quentin Tarantino's 1994 film "Pulp Fiction," Marsellus Wallace - a criminal boss played by Ving Rhames - banishes prizefighter Butch Coolidge (Bruce Willis) from Southern California, telling him "You lost all your L.A. privileges. " If only it were that easy to kick Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling out of L.A. There is simply no person, institution or network in today's Los Angeles with the clout to force powerful Angelenos to repent their sins - much less drive them out of town.

Hoping to calm any fears about playing in front of a hostile crowd, Patterson coach Harry Martin on Friday dusted off a sweet memory - a video of the Clippers' region final win two years ago in front of a raucous crowd at Milford Mill. "I told them [the atmosphere] really wasn't a big deal," Martin said. "We just had to weather the storm. " Hours later, in front of an equally boisterous crowd at Randallstown, No. 8 Patterson weathered the storm, rallying from an early nine-point deficit to stop the No. 5 Rams, 73-63, in the Class 2A North region final.

Patterson senior guard Rysheed Corbin wasn't happy when he saw one of his younger teammates messing around at practice the other day. When the same sophomore again was more playful than focused during a later drill, the Forest Park transfer had seen enough. "Pick it up or go - we're trying to win here," Corbin yelled across the gym.  One thing Corbin's new teammates and coaches quickly learned is he doesn't hold back.  When asked why he decided to move on to Patterson for his senior year, Corbin, a 'B' student who played three varsity seasons at Forest Park, was just as direct.             "Transferring was a big deal for me because this was the one team I felt like I could win a state championship with," he said. "Forest Park was good, but there wasn't enough there for me to win. " Corbin - 5 feet, 11 inches of explosive energy - takes the same approach on the court.

The Patterson football team made the two-hour journey to southern Calvert County Friday night for its first appearance in the state semifinals in nine years. Following a 42-8 loss to host Patuxent, it's likely the trip home felt longer.
