Bank shot, jumper, finger roll, hook shot. No matter how many shots 6-foot-7 Russ DeMont of Westminster makes -- and on this night it's 23 in a row -- his expression never changes.The Westminster gymnasium was empty on the night of DeMont's streak, as the Owls went through one of their final preseason practices. But when asked later, the 185-pound center had no recollection of the streak.He had been busy."It takes a lot of work," said DeMont. "It's like coach [Dave Byers] says, nothing is given to you. You have to go out and get it on your own."

Many people look at Russell DeMont and say it must be nice to be 6 feet 8 and playing high school basketball in Carroll County.There just aren't very many players in the county over 6-4, and none of them has the talent and potential that Westminster High's DeMont possesses.DeMont is easily the best big man in the county.But with all that potential comes a lot of high expectations from teammates, classmates, fans and coaches.And it's hard to hide when you're 6-8 and almost everybody else is 6-2 or smaller.

Westminster struggled throughout most of the first three quarters last night. In the fourth quarter, however, the Owls put it all together.And Liberty fell apart.Charles Van Horn and Russell DeMont combined for 20 of host Westminster's 28 fourth-quarter points, and the Owls held Liberty to one basket on the way to a 60-47 victory in a Carroll County and Central Maryland Conference game.Westminster (7-11, 3-1 in county, 5-4 in CMC) could not get going offensively through three quarters. The Owls made only 14 of 40 shots in that stretch and trailed 35-32 heading into the fourth.

The struggling Westminster Owls were looking to turn their season around with undefeated Thomas Johnson in town last night.And although the Owls ended up on the short end of a 51-32 decision to the Patriots, it was the kind of effort that still could get things headed in the right direction.It was a second-half offensive drought that did the Owls in. After playing even with the Central Maryland Conference-leading Patriots (11-0, 4-0) in a scrappy, defensive first half, the Owls (3-9, 1-2)

The winter days were dragging, the snow kept coming and high school boys basketball in Carroll County wasn't exactly booming.But suddenly coach Dave Byers and the Westminster Owls stepped forward to make the final days of the winter season bearable.Byers and the Owls began to put on a clinic every time they took the court. The passes were crisp and precise, the offense was fluid, the rebounding was effective, the intensity was at a high level and 6-foot-8 junior center Russell DeMont was no longer a product.

* Russell DeMont, Westminster, 6-8, Sr., C -- The tallest player in the county and also the most dominant. Has good hands and post up moves in the paint. DeMont averaged just under 10 points a game and 6.5 rebounds on a senior-dominated Westminster squad last season. He will be the go-to guy this year for the Owls. Also a strong presence on defense.* Josh Gursky, Liberty, 6-1, Sr., G -- A gutty player who can score both from the outside and inside, Gursky is the Lions' top returning scorer after averaging 12 a game last season.

The 1993 season appears to have all the makings of a rebuilding season for the Westminster Owls, but then 6-8 senior center Russell DeMont grabs a rebound and slams it back home for two.DeMont showed the ability to dominate at times for the county champion Owls last season. But he was just one piece of the puzzle in a lineup that featured Player of the Year forward Todd Dorsey and first-team all-county point guard Matt Brightful.With them and six other key contributors lost to graduation, it's DeMont who gets the chance to take center stage this season.
