North County football coach Chuck Markiewicz says "nobody talks about our defense," but everybody was talking about his Knights last night, especially Crossland.The Knights (2-0) dominated the Cavaliers (0-2) to post a 22-0 victory at home in Linthicum. North County's highly touted run-and-shoot offense put the points on the board, but the defense put Crossland on its back most of the night."I can't say enough about how well Brad [Wilson, defensive coordinator] had them prepared," said Markiewicz.

COLLEGE PARK - In March 2001, when Randallstown won its latest of two state boys basketball titles, the Rams were led by a feisty sophomore named Levi Stukes, who belied his age with his ability to dominate from anywhere on the floor. Rams coach Kim Rivers generally eschews lofty comparisons between Stukes and 6-foot-1 sophomore guard Johnny Higgins, his current prodigy. But the way Higgins performed last night in Randallstown's 63-56 defeat of Crossland, from Prince George's County, in a Class 3A state semifinal, comparisons of Stukes and Higgins were virtually unavoidable.

Class 3A No. 10 Annapolis (20-6) vs. Bethesda-CC (18-7) When: Today, 3 p.m. Outlook: Contrasting styles will be showcased here. The Panthers will try to keep things up-tempo with their quick guards.

Football is supposed to be fun, but sometimes it's work, and just as in real life, coaches and players have days when they just want to get it over with and go home.Third-ranked North County (2-0) had one of those days yesterday in Prince George's County, but it still had enough talent to overwhelm Crossland, 38-18, and go home a winner.The Knights led 25-6 at the half, and a cloudburst at intermission continued into the the third period, diminishing to a steady, light rain for the rest of the game.

The Panthers (24-2), defending regional champs, trailed the entire game, but pulled within two points at 72-70 with a minute left.

COLLEGE PARK -- Unexpectedly minus a senior starter, No. 6 Dunbar survived an anxiety attack with two minutes left in yesterday's Class 3A state semifinal game here.When the buzzer sounded, the Poets were on top, 68-58, for their 11th straight win, plus a shot tomorrow at the school's fifth straight state championship. Indeed, other, younger players stepped up in cavernous Cole Field House to help Dunbar eliminate Crossland, the Washington area's No. 3 ranked team.The missing Dunbar starter was Dyrell Garrett, whom coach Lynn Badham announced had been dropped from the squad for violating team policy.

What a show by top-ranked Annapolis in Prince George's County last night as the Panthers routed host Crossland, 87-52 in the Class 3A East quarterfinals before a large contingent of Panthers fans and parents who made the trip. Junior point guard Marcus Neal directed an almost perfect performance by the Panthers, who used crisp passing, a knack for finding the open man and superb man-to-man defense to run away with the game. "It's the chemistry of this team, it really showed tonight and this is really a three-year job, not something we have done in one season," said Annapolis coach John Brady.

The feeling in the Mount Hebron locker room last night was quite different from a year ago, when the Vikings exited the Class 3A East regional boys basketball playoffs with a lopsided defeat. This time, the Vikings had a reason to be proud of the way they played despite a 51-41 loss to Crossland of Prince George's County in a first-round game in Ellicott City. "It's a lot different this year, because we lost to Friendly by more than 40 points last year, and this was such a close game," said Mount Hebron's Billy Martin, a senior forward.

The surprise of Baltimore County boys basketball has to be the Dulaney Lions, whose 10-0 record after last night's victory over Randallstown includes victories over four ranked teams, including defending Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference regular-season and tournament champion Spalding, area Catholic League power Calvert Hall and Class 3A state semifinalist Annapolis. Julius Crossland and 6-foot-8 center Nate Hopkins lead the way. Crossland averages 15.7 points, four rebounds, four assists and three steals.

Dulaney missed its first 18 shots, was 1-for-19 in the first half, and landed just eight of 42 field-goal attempts (19 percent) for the game at Calvert Hall last night. The Lions' big man, 6-foot-5 senior Nate Hopkins, had all four of his points at the free-throw line. Sound pretty bad for the No. 15 Lions? Believe it or not, Dulaney beat the No. 11 Cardinals, 32-29, giving its Towson rival its first loss after five straight wins in the young season. The victors from up York Road in Timonium did manage to sink 12 of 20 free throws, which was key to their taking the squeaker.
