The daughter of an NBA player or coach must make certain sacrifices. The league's time commitment could hardly be more demanding. Maryland freshman guard Lexie Brown is a realist. She knows that her father - Sacramento Kings assistant coach Dee Brown - would have a difficult time breaking away from his team to watch Lexie and the Terps in Sunday night's Final Four game against undefeated Notre Dame in Nashville, Tenn. But she remained hopeful. “Every year since about 10th grade he's really missed a lot of my basketball seasons, but he's always managed to make it to the state playoffs and now the Elite Eight game,” she said Thursday.

It was at that point last August that the 59-year-old gathered up her favorite mementos, pieces of artwork and assorted photographs and left Catonsville for a Bozzuto-built, three-story townhouse in the new development of Towson Green.
