A Cherry Hill crack dealer admitted in federal court Wednesday to killing two rivals as part of a long-running feud between two neighborhood drug crews. Davon Martin, 25, was a member of a group known as Little Spelman, which was locked in a bitter war between 2011 and 2012 with another group, called Up Da Hill. His guilty plea to racketeering conspiracy highlights the interwoven nature of violence in some city neighborhoods. "Many of the shootings and murders in Baltimore City result from disputes between rival drug gangs," said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein.

As Hofstra coach Joe Mihalich directed the Pride's offense in the early minutes of his team's game with top-seeded Delaware, Blue Hens coach Monte Ross looked on with dismay. The game was less than 10 minutes in, but the fans inside Baltimore Arena could already sense an upset. But in the second-half, it was Mihalich raising his voice on the sideline. Despite falling behind 28-19 10 minutes into the first half, the Blue Hens used an 11-2 run to start the second-half to fend off a pesky Hofstra squad 87-76.

Eliza Jennings saw the future slipping away for the teenage great-nephew she'd been raising. He was depressed and angry, cutting school, running away from her home in Rosedale. When he turned 16, the arrests began, mostly for dealing drugs in the city. Jennings appealed to the juvenile system for help, writing a letter in April to Baltimore's top prosecutor. "I have already had to identify Davon by [police] photograph," she wrote. "I pray that I do not have to identify him by way of the City Morgue."

NEWARK, Del. - Delaware was down by 20 points with under 9 minutes left and the fans were beginning to empty from Bob Carpenter Center, which was nothing new to the Blue Hens' men's basketball program. The student section stuck around longer than usual, although it was only a quarter full to begin with. Little did those fans know that Feb. 5 would be the night Baltimore native Davon Usher would bring Delaware back to relevancy. With under a minute to play, Usher stripped Cougars guard Anthony Thomas and went coast to coast, evading four defenders on his way to the rim. The 6-foot-6 senior guard flipped the ball through the net, sending Delaware on its way to a 67-64 victory.

DRESS REHEARSAL: Near the end of their last open practice before Thursday night's preseason opener, the Ravens ran a two-minute simulation where the offense had to drive the length of the field. The first-team defense got the better of the starting offense, forcing quarterback Joe Flacco to settle for short completions, which quickly wound down the clock. After Flacco spiked the ball with eight seconds left, kicker Billy Cundiff missed a game-tying attempt from 58 yards. TURBULENT TYROD: Backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor, as has often been the case this summer, was up-and-down during the indoor practice.

With tight end Dennis Pitta nursing a broken bone in his right hand that is expected to sideline him until the Ravens' regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 10, the burden has been on Ed Dickson , who started all 18 games (regular season and playoffs) last year, to perform well. But Dickson is not alone. Davon Drew has been getting his share of reps that would have normally gone to Pitta, and with two rookies (Matt Balasavage and Bruce Figgins)

After a 2011 campaign that ended with him catching 22 passes for 231 yards and four touchdowns in six regular-season games and two playoff contests, Dennis Pitta had plenty of reasons to look forward to the upcoming season. But the Ravens tight end has been shelved by a broken bone in his right hand - an injury that is expected to sideline him until the regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 10. One might expect Pitta to be frustrated or disappointed by the setback, but fellow tight end Ed Dickson said Pitta isn't moping around the locker room or in the meeting rooms.

Waiting two years for a shot at Division I basketball was something Davon Usher   had accepted over time. But the six extra weeks the former Digital Harbor star spent hoping for that elusive DI offer seemed nearly interminable. Usher, a 6-foot-6, 190-pound wing, had a solid junior college career at Polk State College in Winter Haven, Fla., averaging around nine points and seven rebounds for the Eagles as a sophomore. North Carolina Central, Western Illinois, San Jose State, Quinnipiac and North Carolina A&T were among the many DI programs interested in the former Rams standout, but reluctant to offer a scholarship.
