The General. That's the nickname Taysean Scott earned on the basketball court when he was 7 for his fearless style of play and innate ability to lead. The nickname stuck, and Scott has adopted a similar mentality on the football field. Scott, who grew up in Baltimore and attended McDonogh, is a star cornerback at Williams College. He made a name for himself on the field during his freshman season, starting nearly every game and dominating defensively. Starting in mid-July, though, The General will join a new team: He's part of a 44-man roster that will represent the United States at the 2014 International Federation of American Football Under-19 World Championships in Kuwait.

PHILADELPHIA - Senior Joe Gabrysiak's goal with 2:04 remaining in overtime led the New York Institute of Technology to a 14-13 victory over Limestone yesterday in the NCAA Division II men's lacrosse championship game at Lincoln Financial Field. It was the third national title for the Bears and their second in three years. They also defeated Limestone in the 2003 finale at M&T Bank Stadium, 9-4. Gabrysiak beat the Saints' defense to the right side of the goal to settle a tight game that was tied nine times, the last at 13-13, after two straight scores by Limestone's Patrick Cardiff had sparked his team from its first two-goal deficit.

The dramatic turnaround for the Towson University football team this season will be punctuated by the school's first playoff appearance since becoming a I-AA program in 1987. While many not familiar with the program's history look at it as if the Tigers have come from nowhere, those who were part of the their early days as a small-college Eastern power wonder if the current success can be sustained. When Towson (9-2) hosts Lehigh (10-1) in the second round of the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision playoffs Saturday at Johnny Unitas Stadium, it will bring back faded snapshots for those who remember when the Tigers were a perennial playoff team.

When Lincoln (Pa.) University basketball coach John Hill took the top job in September, graduation and transfers left him with four returning players and less than two months to assemble a team. Luckily for Hill, one of those returning players was Denzel Mooney . The 6-foot-3 junior from Western Tech has played every position but center for the Lions in their first season as an active member of Division II. His team-high 21.6 points per game have been a bright spot on a team that has won just three times this season.

Southwestern junior Taylor Holmes remembered on Saturday how she and her Sabres teammates felt that no one in the city gave them a chance early in the season to make it to the Baltimore City Division II championship. With only four players back, a new coach and eight transfers, the Sabres had a lot to overcome, but they slowly silenced their critics. A win over Carver just before Christmas break gave the Sabres confidence and showed them, and their opponents, that they could contend for the title.

With their double-digit lead down to 1 in the final minute, Northwestern showed poise at both ends to secure a 49-44 win in the Baltimore City Division II championship Saturday at Morgan State. Junior forward KeAndre Cook, who scored a game-high 16 points, provided most of the answers at the end. After KASA's Davonte Lewis hit a 3-pointer from the left corner to cut the lead to 45-44 with 55 seconds to play, Cook hit two free throws after getting fouled on a drive to the basket. On KASA's next possession, Cook jumped out to block DeAndre McCormick's 3 point try and the Wildcats added another basket late to close out the win. After going 7-18 last season, Northwestern is now 16-5 this season.

The big snow has forced Anne Arundel County officials to move their basketball championships to next Friday, Feb. 21 instead of Wednesday, because some postponed games have backed up into the middle of next week. The Anne Arundel championships were scheduled earlier than any other local jusrisdiction, so everyone else has more time to reschedule regular-season contests. Title games in Baltimore City, Baltimore County and the Harford-Cecil Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference remain unchanged. Carroll and Howard do not have county championship games, with the regular-season winners taking those titles.

Aaron Craft is a senior guard for Ohio State, considered one of top perimeter defenders in college basketball. Conner Lipinski, meanwhile, is a sophomore guard from Gambrills who played just two minutes in the first eight games this season as a preferred walk-on for Maryland. The two appear to have little in common — no one would mistake their play if they faced off in a game. But Lipinski, a former standout at Annapolis Area Christian School, was trying his best Craft imitation recently during practices at Comcast Center in College Park.

The Ravens, who will host next spring's NCAA men's lacrosse championships at M&T Bank Stadium, did not submit a final bid to host Championship Weekend between 2015 and 2018, largely over concerns about a scheduling conflict with the Orioles. Lisa Dixon, the Ravens special events manager and special assistant to the president, told Inside Lacrosse on Friday: “We currently have no guarantee that we can avoid a conflict with potential Orioles home games in future years, and that is a critical factor in our ability to bid.” Next season, the Orioles have two home games (May 24 and 25)
