Player of the Year candidate Kemba Walker and third seed Connecticut were back at it Thursday, five days after completing five games in five days to win the Big East tournament. Multiple ice baths later, Walker and the Huskies showed no ill effects of their New York marathon as they rolled past 14th seed Bucknell, 81-52, and into the third round of the NCAA tournament. "He didn't look tired at all," Bucknell guard Darryl Shazier said of Walker. The Huskies, who ran their record to 16-1 in opening NCAA tournament games since 1990, will face the winner of Thursday's late game between Missouri and Cincinnati.

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.

Maryland will likely dump all or part of the state's health insurance exchange website and adopt Connecticut's system, a move that could make it the first state to abandon a dysfunctional site. Officials with Maryland's exchange plan to turn to the "Connecticut solution," which was developed largely by Deloitte Consulting LLC and considered among the most successful in enrolling consumers in private health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, said two sources with knowledge of the situation.

Cleveland Browns rookie running back Terrance West stood at one end of the field at Johnny Unitas Stadium on Saturday, watching the first half of his former school's season opener against Central Connecticut State. The Tigers probably wish West had been on the field, and not in the stands, for their 31-27 loss to a Blue Devils team that went 4-8 in 2013. A mostly gold-clad crowd of an announced 8,058 was treated to an uneven performance by an offense and defense just seven months removed from playing in the Football Championship Subdivision national championship game.

When Randy Edsall was coaching Connecticut, he had the opportunity to schedule two games with Maryland. The school wasn't far from where he grew up in Glen Rock. Pa., and he believed playing the Terps could help the Huskies recruit in the talent-rich Baltimore-Washington, D.C., region. Edsall had no idea that, years later, he would be leading Maryland rather than Connecticut when the games were played. On Saturday, the Terps and Huskies will play the second and final game of the series.

HERSHEY, Pa. -- Donyell Marshall didn't disappoint yesterday, but the crowd and Towson State did.Marshall was a playground hero in Reading, 50 miles east of here, before becoming Connecticut's leader and one of the top players in the Big East Conference. The Huskies showcased him at the Hersheypark Arena in their opener, a 107-67 blowout of the Tigers before 2,410.It was the third time in six years that the Tigers had come here to accommodate a product of the region. They were handled by Jeff Lebo and North Carolina in 1988 and scared Syracuse and Billy Owens in 1990, games that drew good crowds to see those former Carlisle standouts.

The resume of the Maryland women's basketball team during 11 seasons under coach Brenda Frese includes one national championship, four appearances in the NCAA tournament's regional finals and five trips to the Sweet 16, including this weekend in the home state of its next opponent. Yet the fourth-seeded Terrapins (26-7) arrived here as a prohibitive underdog, attempting to advance to another regional final with a win in Saturday afternoon's game at Webster Bank Arena against No. 1 seed Connecticut (31-4)

For only the second time since Rob Ambrose became Towson's coach, the Tigers will open the season with a game at home, welcoming Central Connecticut State to Johnny Unitas Stadium on Saturday at 6 p.m. The only other time in that span the Tigers played host to a season opener was in 2011, when they routed Morgan State, 42-3. Although Towson is just two games above .500 at home (15-13) under Ambrose, the program is 13-5 at Johnny Unitas Stadium in the past three years, and Ambrose said the team's recent success has had a noticeable impact in the stands.

On Friday, Towson released its first depth chart, and one of the notable developments was at free safety where redshirt sophomore Jordan Mynatt ranked ahead of junior Christian Carpenter, a first-team All-Colonial Athletic Association last season. During his weekly conference call Monday afternoon, Tigers coach Rob Ambrose said Mynatt, a Columbia native and Wilde Lake graduate, has grown exponentially since training camp opened Aug. 4. “From where he was a year ago, he's a lot more skilled and knowledgeable at the position,” Ambrose said.

Federal regulators expressed confidence this week in Maryland's move to new technology to run its health exchange website. In a letter to Gov. Martin O'Malley dated Aug. 4, the top official from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services said it had reviewed the cost and feasibility of using the same platform as used in Connecticut. CMS' approval and ongoing oversight are necessary for the state to make the change, which was needed because the current website used by the uninsured and underinsured to buy health coverage has never worked properly, causing problems for thousands.

Pardon us if we are not completely reassured by officials' insistence that glitches recently discovered in the Connecticut Affordable Care Act health insurance exchange that Maryland is in the process of adapting will be fixed well before the site goes live here in November. To learn that a coding error there caused inaccurate bills, unpaid subsidies, mistaken Medicaid enrollments or outright dropped coverage for more than 5,000 people is not encouraging - particularly since officials there initially misdiagnosed the problem as an isolated incident before backtracking this month to acknowledge a problem with their software.

Someone has been using Connecticut to try to teach us all a lesson.All summer long, that unlucky state has suffered through a budget and tax deadlock that has just about paralyzed its government. To those in the middle of it, trying to find a solution, it is a nightmare that never seems to end. But to some with long memories, it is an irony almost too rich to be coincidental.For nearly all of this century, Connecticut was the model of political discipline and obedience, the state where office-holders and voters alike did as they were told.

Since Maryland health exchange officials decided to replace their troubled website with technology used in Connecticut, critics have asked whether it would be cheaper and less risky to join the federal website. Democratic U.S. Rep. John Delaney, among the exchange's most persistent critics, said discussions with "numerous parties inside the government and in the private sector led me to believe that switching to the federal option was a cost-effective option that would help more Marylanders receive health care.
