It took two visits before Evan Phoenix told the Central Connecticut State coaching staff that he wanted to play basketball there. In the Calvert Hall junior's mind, though, the first trip was more than enough. “When I first stepped on the campus, it just seemed like the environment I wanted to be in,” Phoenix said. “Everything just seemed right.” Phoenix committed to the Blue Devils last week. The 6-foot-9, 220-pound power forward also considered offers from American, Hartford and UMBC.

Gordy Jr. accepted the pleas and committed Clark indefinitely to the state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, which will determine if he can ever be released.

Dressed in a sharp black suit accented by a Maryland-red tie, 17-year-old Antonio Logan-El sat before a television camera yesterday at ESPN Zone in Baltimore, surrounded by Maryland football fans waving red pompoms and holding Terps signs. Highlights of his football games at Forestville High School in Prince George's County flashed on a giant screen behind him as the top offensive lineman in the state turned his college commitment into prime-time entertainment. Logan-El first pulled a Florida cap out of a bag before declaring it wasn't the school for him and tossing it aside.

CHICAGO -- Having a lifelong commitment to a loved one means you never have to say you're sorry. But having a lifelong "commitment" to your job means having to say you're very serious about it.The option to pledge devotion to a career is relatively new for the nation's employed women.Those who are thus committed tend to be women who are financially independent and have no children younger than 18, according to new research by Helena Z. Lopata, professor of sociology and director of the Center for the Comparative Study of Social Roles at Loyola University of Chicago.

No sooner did Dwayne Norris slip into a Bandits jersey early last November than he noticed a big "C" sewed onto the front of it. Coach Walt Kyle was looking for a team captain. He knew Norris was his man."Watch this guy," said the coach. "He can be spectacular." Many times this season, he was, especially when the "Plug Line" of Norris, Mike Maneluk and J. F. Jomphe was in full bloom. It was the other things Norris brought to the job of team leader that counted just as much, however: hustle, desire, dedication and the first requirement -- leadership.

In a civil case that highlights growing competition in the health care industry, a Baltimore County jury has levied a $5 million judgment against Midatlantic Cardiovascular Associates, the area's largest cardiology practice, finding that two of its doctors committed fraud when they steered a patient to a surgeon employed by the practice rather than his own surgeon, who belongs to a rival group. In its verdict, the jury found that Dr. Mark G. Midei, a cardiologist who is also the director of the cardiac catheterization laboratory at St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson, and Dr. Jeffrey E. Sell, a cardiac surgeon, had deliberately misled a patient to believe his heart surgeon was not available to perform a bypass operation.

Shane Clark, a 6-foot-7 forward at Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va., will sign a national letter of intent today to play basketball for the University of Maryland, his coach, Kevin Keatts, said yesterday. Clark, who gave an oral commitment to the Terrapins' coaching staff 10 days ago, could be the only member of next season's freshman class. "We're in an unusual situation," said Terps coach Gary Williams, who isn't permitted to comment specifically on recruits per NCAA rules.

Marty Costes battered Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference pitching last season, his first after being home schooled. The junior's performance in the tough MIAA was apparently enough to convince Maryland coach John Szefc that the Archbishop Curley infielder should be a Terp. Costes, now a senior, orally committed to play baseball at Maryland on Friday, the day he was offered a full scholarship. "I like the philosophy of the coaching staff," Costes said on Sunday.

Letter writer Irwin E. Weiss could not be further from the truth when he refers to Israel's recent invasion of Gaza as its "recent war of defense" ("Compare and contrast: Israel in Gaza, U.S. in Syria," Sept. 25). In fact, it was Israel that purposefully initiated the violence against Hamas in order to prevent a reconciliation between the rival Palestinian governments of Fatah and Hamas from taking place. Israel carried out bombing raids, a military incursion, 17 killings and mass arrests - all before Hamas fired a single rocket.

We at Network 2000 are giving careful consideration to which candidate for governor is willing to make a sincere and honest commitment to the women of the state of Maryland. Recognizing that the next administration will have the opportunity and responsibility of appointing approximately 1,000 of Maryland's citizens to positions of authority, Network 2000 feels it is important for women in Maryland to have an equal opportunity and role as appointees. We, as an organization, raised our voice to challenge each of the candidates for governor to commit to having 50 percent of their gubernatorial appointments to commissions, committees, task forces, advisory boards and intrastate agencies be women.

TORONTO - Much bigger goals lie ahead for the Orioles, and their final regular-season series here is less about winning games than about fine-tuning for the postseason. Still, the Orioles don't want to trudge to the postseason. Following their 4-2 loss to the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre on Saturday, the Orioles have lost three consecutive games for the first time since being swept at Wrigley Field five weeks ago, and for just the second time since the All-Star break. The loss also ensured that the Orioles will finish the regular season with just their third road series loss since the break.

Shawn Taylor has been on the football coaching staff at Robinson High School in Tampa, Fla., since 2001. The school has produced former Alabama star Javier Arenas as well as other successful Football Bowl Subdivision players. For years, Taylor said, dozens of colleges would stop by and check in about players during the spring. Maryland wasn't really a presence, he said. This year, in particular, is different. The Terps have been down there. They are coming up in conversations.

Aberdeen junior Stephanie Jones already had a connection to Maryland's women's basketball team when she started to get serious about the recruiting process. She knew how much her sister, Brionna, loved her experience last winter as a Terps freshman, but Stephanie did her homework before deciding she wanted to be a Terp, too. She cut a long list of top-notch schools to Maryland, Duke, Louisville and Notre Dame, and Wednesday, the versatile 6-foot-2 forward-guard made a verbal commitment to Maryland coach Brenda Frese, who had first seen her play as a fifth grader.

HILLAH, Iraq - U.S. Deputy Defense Secretary Paul D. Wolfowitz, a chief architect of the war, insisted yesterday that the U.S. military is committed to Iraq, and he spoke passionately about the need to bring members of Saddam Hussein's government to justice. "We're not playing any games with Saddam Hussein," Wolfowitz said, bristling at the suggestion of a local official from the southern city of Karbala that the United States isn't doing everything it can to capture Hussein. "The sooner we catch that bastard - excuse me - the better off everybody will be."

The next ground ball that's hit to Luis Lopez will settle into much steadier hands than the ones he flashed during his first two professional seasons. Back then, it probably would have been bobbled, kicked or sailed over his first baseman. And he would have grimaced, shaken his head and waited for the next one. That's how Lopez, whose contract was purchased Friday by the Orioles, made it through each of his 47 errors in 70 games with the Spokane Indians in 1988. And the 74 errors - that's not a misprint - in 127 games at Single-A Charleston of the South Atlantic League the next year.

As Orioles rookie first baseman Christian Walker strove this season to develop as a power hitter and solidify his future at first base, a position where power is paramount, he never strayed from the hitting approach that had earned him acclaim. Hitters desperate for power can end up getting pull-happy and sacrifice the bat-to-ball skills that had carried them so far, and Walker, in search of over-the-fence power, continued to focus his approach on hitting up the middle of the field.
