Antoine Myers loved the idea of learning from one of the game's best point guards of all time, making his commitment to Isiah Thomas ' Florida International program an easy decision. A week after Myers' pledge to the Panthers, however, plans to play for the NBA Hall of Famer were ended when FIU dismissed Thomas. “It was difficult,” Myers said. “I had my mind set on going to one place and then for all that stuff to happen, to reopen my recruitment and try to like another school, it was kind of hard.”  While Myers was upset with Thomas' dismissal, several mid-major programs were ecstatic that the 6-foot-3, 190-pound point guard was back on the market.

Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse coach Dave Pietramala appears to be cool while the whirlwind blows around him. A year ago, the Blue Jays failed to make the NCAA tournament for the first time in 41 years, and they are on the verge of being left out again if they don't get another big win in their final five games. That might be impossible for the Blue Jays faithful to bear. Lacrosse to Hopkins is what football is to Notre Dame and basketball to Kentucky. Lacrosse isn't just a sport at Hopkins, it's the sport.

LOS ANGELES - Few point guards maneuver with the skill and grace of the New Jersey Nets' Jason Kidd, and that dexterity is helping during All-Star weekend, as he has had to weave his way through the traffic of questions about the team's coaching change. The Nets, fresh off two straight trips to the NBA Finals, dumped coach Byron Scott on Jan. 26 and replaced him with former assistant Lawrence Frank. In terms of wins and losses, the move was a good one, as the team has won 10 straight games - nine since Frank took over.

Franklin wide receiver Ian Thomas had a few reservations about his intention to sign with Rutgers after the Scarlet Knights coach Greg Schiano announced his departure late last week for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After a lot of thought, however, Thomas decided Rutgers was still the place for him. “I can't stand here and tell anyone that I will be playing in the NFL,” Thomas said during his Wednesday morning signing ceremony, “but I can guarantee I will have a degree from Rutgers in the next four years.” In the Franklin gym before a crowd of family, teammates and friends, Thomas signed his national letter of intent to accept a full football scholarship from the New Jersey university on the opening day of the football signing period.

Quarterback C.J. Brown has started only a single game for Maryland, and there's already speculation about whether Danny 'O'Brien -- the starter the previous 15 games -- could depart for another school. It's a bit premature. At least for now, those who know him say O'Brien doesn't intend to leave. That doesn't surprise me. His attachment to Maryland and the region is strong, and that's not something that changes overnight.  O'Brien is smart enough to know seasons are long, and outlooks for players can swiftly change.

On a day where Chuck Pagano was introduced as the new head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, the Ravens remained mum on the status of their own coaching staff Thursday. However, all indications are that linebackers coach Dean Pees remains the clear front-runner to succeed Pagano as the Ravens' defensive coordinator, and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron will stay in his current position. Coach John Harbaugh called a news conference for 11 a.m. Friday to discuss his coaching staff, ahead of owner Steve Bisciotti and the organization's top decision-makers' annual State of the Ravens address next week.

Aside from former defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano leaving to coach the Indianapolis Colts, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said at Friday's introdutory press conference for new defensive coordiantor Dean Pees that he'd like the rest of his staff this year to return. However, he didn't dismiss the possibility that he could still lose a couple of his staff members. There has been some speculation that defensive line coach Clarence Brooks, who has now been passed over in consecutive seasons for the defensive coordinator post, could head to Indianapolis to work under Pagano.

The Atlantic Coast Conference has always had a reputation for being a top-heavy basketball league, especially when its top two teams, North Carolina and Duke, were significantly better than their competition. As ACC play begins this weekend, there is a feeling that the league, perhaps for the first time in memory, is a lot weaker at the bottom than it is strong at the top. "I think the ACC is perhaps the weakest it's ever been," said longtime college basketball analyst Jay Bilas, who played and later coached at Duke under Mike Krzyzewski.

It is about that time in the season when the Blast can expect to see everybody's best. Teams such as the Buffalo Blizzard, which the Blast faces at 2: 05 p.m. today, are fighting for playoff spots and cannot afford too many more losses, especially at home. "Buffalo needs to go into a very good stretch," said Blast coach Kevin Healey, whose team arrived in Buffalo yesterday. "Certainly, all the home games for them will be very critical. We just need to do what we do best on the road." And that, according to Healey, is to take control of the game early by putting up some quick points and finishing strong.

COLLEGE PARK - Top recruit Nick Faust arrived at Maryland with a hitch in his shooting stroke, a tendency to miss the occasional dunk during workouts, and a story to tell about how the Terps almost lost him after coach Gary Williams retired in May. Someday - perhaps even this season - the talented City graduate may become a college basketball star. But that doesn't mean the 6-foot-6 guard with a youthful face and wispy mustache won't first have some growing up to do. The learning process began before Faust had even enrolled.

To give you a look at Maryland and this week's opponent, Georgia Tech, I traded five question-and-answers with Ken Sugiura, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Georgia Tech beat writer. Here are my answers to Ken's questions. His responses to my Georgia Tech-themed questions will appear soon.   1) Is "disciplined" a word you would use to describe Maryland's defense? Disciplined, yes. But also young and still learning. Maryland started three first-year players on defense last week.
