Pat Skerry has spent the past 30 minutes pacing the perimeter of the court, tossing out gentle pointers in his New England-inflected patter. One of his Towson Tigers fires an ill-conceived pass that ends up rattling among the seats at SECU Arena. The third-year coach abruptly morphs into a different animal. "Instead of acting like little kids, let's execute 'Hook' correctly," he bellows, referring to one of his team's plays. "Guard!" he barks after a subsequent defensive lapse.

Questions abound for several in-state Division I college basketball team as their regular-season schedules begin Friday. Loyola returns most of its core playing group and faces the pressure of repeating as MAAC champions. Can the Greyhounds make it two NCAA tournament appearances in a row? Towson and Navy, meanwhile, are starting from the bottom. Ed DeChellis' Midshipmen are mired in a 22-game losing streak, while Pat Skerry's Tigers struggled through a 1-31 season a year ago. Two first-year coaches - UMBC's Aki Thomas and Mount St. Mary's Jamion Christian - will be tasked with starting the rebuilding processes in Catonsville and Emmittsburg, respectively.

Loyola Maryland swept the Patriot League weekly awards, as Nikko Pontrello was named Offensive Player of the Week, Joe Fletcher the Defensive Player of the Week, Jack Runkel the Goalkeeper of the Week and Brian Sherlock the Rookie of the Week. The honors come after two victories in which the Greyhounds outscored Towson and Holy Cross by a combined 36-8. Pontrello matched his previous best of four goals on Wednesday in a 20-4 defeat of Towson, then eclipsed that mark with a six-goal effort Saturday in the Greyhounds' first-ever Patriot League game, a 16-4 win over Holy Cross.

Forget for a moment about where Maryland-Duke might rank in the pantheon of college basketball rivalries and think back instead to Duke fans chanting "Sweat, Gary, sweat" at former Maryland coach Gary Williams. His face is glistening and his silver hair is matted as he stalks the sideline under the hot lights at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Think about Maryland fans howling a four-letter profanity at the Blue Devils, or Juan Dixon tarnishing Duke hero Shane Battier's senior night with 28 points, or Jay Williams' icy stare in the huddle before leading Duke back from 10 points down in the "Miracle Minute" game that still nags at the Terps who played in it. "Not our rivals," the Cameron Crazies condescended in recent years, trying perhaps too hard to poke the Terps where it hurt most.

Jared Nickens is used to being overlooked. As a high school player in central New Jersey, Nickens and his parents decided to have him reclassified as a junior in order to give him an extra season to get better offers to play college basketball. Now a senior at the Westtown School in West Chester, Pa., the 6-foot-6, 190-pound small forward doesn't get nearly the same attention as junior teammate Georgios Papagiannas, a 7-1 center from Greece. In Maryland's four-player 2014 recruiting class, Nickens is largely viewed by outsiders as an afterthought behind guards Melo Trimble and Dion Wiley and 7-1 center Trayvon Reed.

When Milford Mill's Qierra Murray and Indian Creek's Cydni Cole began considering where they might play college basketball, the best friends weren't thinking about going to the same program. The All-Metro second-team guards - Amateur Athletic Union teammates since they were 13 years old - were being recruited by several colleges and wanted to explore their options. Then George Mason coach Nyla Milleson, who had been recruiting Cole, started looking at Murray, too. For the first time, the girls pictured themselves as college teammates.

Baltimore Sun reporter Jeff Barker, producer-editor Jonas Shaffer and deputy sports editor David Selig weigh in on three topics from the past week in Maryland sports. What do you think of Mark Turgeon's request to the men's basketball team to relax and have more “fun” during games? Jeff Barker: People may scoff at it, but not me. It's not THE answer, of course. But playing with a more relaxed attitude - enjoying the game they've loved since they were kids - sure can't hurt.

At 7 feet, 2 inches and 260 pounds, Ian Chiles is not difficult to spot on the Morgan State campus. The senior center is beginning to get some attention outside of Baltimore, too. Chiles was selected by College Hoops Daily to the website's “Best of 2013” All Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference team, which is composed of five players from the league for their performances in the non-conference portions of their schedules. Chiles ranks second on the Bears (3-10) in points (14.5) and rebounds (5.5)
