As expected, Maryland assistant men's basketball coach Scott Spinelli has left to take a similar job at Boston College, according to reports Saturday. Spinelli, who grew up outside Boston, is expected to join the Eagles as new coach Jim Christian's top assistant, according to CBSsports.com. Spinelli is considered a top recruiter in New England. Spinelli's decision to leave Maryland comes in the aftermath of a disappointing 17-15 season for the Terps and a tumultuous week which saw three players leave the team.

OXFORD, OHIO -- As Kristen Visbal scanned the Internet looking for images of John Harbaugh, she kept encountering the Ravens' head coach in the same pose. Picture-after-picture, there was Harbaugh, wide-eyed and steel-jawed, standing on the sideline with his arm outstretched in the air. "Every person has a pose that they assume on a regular basis," Visbal said. "One of those for John was putting his fist in the air. It's a nice, strong position. " For Visbal, it's only fitting for Harbaugh to be immortalized in that way. The Delaware-based sculptor's bronze statue of the Super Bowl -winning head coach will be erected Saturday in the famed Cradle of Coaches at Miami University of Ohio, Harbaugh's alma mater.

Surrounded by a large crowd of NFL scouts and coaches Monday afternoon at rain-soaked Johnny Unitas Stadium, Towson star running back Terrance West cut sharply to his left and adeptly corralled an intermediate pass without breaking stride. West displayed sound hands, quick feet and impressive balance in front of 22 NFL teams during his Pro Day workout. He didn't drop a pass and maintained his footing despite a steady downpour. "If I had to run on fire, I'd do it, man," said West, a Northwestern graduate who measured in at 5 feet 9, 230 pounds.

OXFORD, Ohio - With a blinding sun and a mostly empty Yager Stadium at his back, Ravens coach John Harbaugh peered into a crowd that contained so many people he wanted to thank. To his right were his parents, wife and daughter, along with other members of his extended family. To his left were about 30 of his former teammates at Miami University (Ohio). Straight ahead were a couple of rows of football fans, many either wearing Miami red or Ravens purple. It was exactly how Harbaugh wanted to commemorate a memorable and rewarding weekend.

Pikesville has never been a power in girls track, but the Panthers have improved in the last few years under Adam Hittner and his staff. The depth assembled by the coaches played a big role in Pikesville's winning its first girls indoor track state title. The Panthers got lots of points in lots of places to edge out Manchester Valley for the Class 1A state title. Senait Weaver was the team's only individual winner — in the 500 — but Pikesville rallied late. The Panthers were able to pull out four top-three finishes that brought in enough points for the championship.

Roddy Peters, the four-star recruit from Suitland who committed to Maryland on Tuesday, had a pretty good coach to learn from this past spring and summer while playing for D.C. Assault. Former Wizards coach Eddie Jordan, a former point guard himself, helped coach Peters on the local AAU powerhouse and believes the Terps made out well for themselves. "He's a terrific passer, a willing passer, who's great in the open court," Jordan said Wednesday from Los Angeles, where he is now an assistant with the Lakers.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter was somewhat astonished by the interest his third base coach vacancy drew. Candidates constantly emerged to replace DeMarlo Hale, who was hired as Toronto's bench coach last month. But when decision time to make a hire came, Showalter stayed within the organization and turned to one of his most trusted coaches. The Orioles announced Thursday they have hired Bobby Dickerson, who has been the organization's minor league infield coordinator for the past three seasons, as their new third base coach.

With a 6-5 win over Navy on Friday night at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, No. 5 Johns Hopkins won its third game in seven days, and coach Dave Pietramala said afterward that the team is physically exhausted. “Three games in seven days is a lot,” he said. “… I think we need a rest, and I think we need it right now. We made a decision that we would give these guys two days off. Do you want to prepare for [Wednesday's home game vs.] Villanova on two days? No, you don't, but they play tomorrow.

With Johns Hopkins moving to the Big Ten for the 2015 season, a schedule that the program could mold and shape will have certain limitations. For one, the Blue Jays must face conference opponents Maryland, Penn State, Ohio State, Rutgers and Michigan, and must keep one weekend open in late April or early May for the league tournament. Other traditional rivalries are on the chopping block, but coach Dave Pietramala confirmed on Thursday that the school's annual showdown with Navy - which will unfold for the 88th time on Friday at 7 p.m. at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis - will be retained.

Saturday's showdown between No. 2 Stevenson and No. 3 Salisbury is a prime opportunity for both sides. For the Mustangs (13-1), a win would extend their winning streak to 13 games and reaffirm their status as the reigning Division III national champion. For the Sea Gulls (15-1), a victory would serve as a vivid reminder that the program that has captured 10 NCAA championships is getting closer to adding No. 11 to the trophy case. For both teams, a victory would likely mean the top seed in the South Region of the NCAA tournament.

Sophomore attackman Ryan Brown did not make his usual start in No. 5 Johns Hopkins' 17-2 thrashing of Mount St. Mary's on Monday. Coach Dave Pietramala was mum about Brown's absence, which  Lacrosse Magazine reported  was caused by a minor injury that the Calvert Hall graduate suffered late in the team's 11-6 victory over No. 6 Maryland on Saturday.  “Ryan didn't play,” Pietramala said on Thursday morning. “He was with the team but did not dress.” Asked whether Brown - the team's leader in goals with 32 this season - would return against Navy (4-7)

During a 7-0 opening stretch, Maryland averaged 13.1 goals per game. Since then, the Terps are 2-2 and have scored 10.5 goals per game - a number that would drop to 7.7 if a 19-6 thumping of Robert Morris on April 2 was left out of the equation. The sudden power outage is eerily similar to last year's progression, as that squad scored at least 10 goals in its first six games before failing to reach the double-digit mark in six of the last eight. But coach John Tillman did not sound alarmed about the offense's inability to find success against No. 7 North Carolina (eight goals in a three-goal loss)

As a result of opening the season with seven consecutive wins en route to a 9-2 overall record and a 3-1 mark in the Atlantic Coast Conference, No. 6 Maryland has not had to worry too much about its postseason fate. That level of comfort, however, could be detrimental to the Terps. They have split their last four games, a stretch capped by Saturday's 11-6 loss to No. 5 Johns Hopkins. The Blue Jays (8-3) collected a victory that they sorely needed to avoid repeating last year's absence from the NCAA tournament, and Maryland coach John Tillman said his players could not match the intensity and effort put forth by Johns Hopkins.
