Recruited by several Division I schools, including Maryland and East Carolina, Darden chose the Charlottesville school because of its academics.

Randallstown's Tony Darden is a natural story for this time of the year. March Madness always brings out some unlikely heroes on the court. But, though Darden didn't make it to the NCAA tournament, what he has accomplished at little Coastal Carolina is as unlikely as it gets. Darden has two deficient anterior cruciate ligaments, forcing him to wear knee braces every time he plays. When his playing days are over, he'll have to have both knees operated on. "The doctors believe the broken leg I had when I was a little over 1 year old caused the ACLs not to function," said Darden.

Fresh graffiti found on the side of a shopping mart in Aberdeen wasn't flashy or colorful, but it made a big impression. Scrawled in big black marks were the letters "R.I.P.", followed by the names of three Aberdeen police officers. It wasn't just vandalism, police said, but a threat. "When you see 'R.I.P.,' you associate that with death, so we're looking at it as threatening," Sgt. Fred Budnick, spokesman for the Aberdeen Police Department, said yesterday. "We don't know whether this is an organized issue or if it's just kids who have had contact with these officers."

Each week, they cram into a dark, hazy cinderblock gym in Aberdeen, bobbing their heads to hip-hop beats and exchanging high-fives. Amid machine-made fog and the frenetic flickering of strobe lights, a blur of limbs and dreadlocks flies in all directions as dancers shake and shimmy the night away, climaxing in a midnight krump showdown. Patrons pay $6 to enter through a garage door into the dingy building, which has no bathrooms, no bar and no drinks. Most of them aren't old enough to buy alcohol anyway.
