Loyola was operating within the thinnest of margins on Wednesday, trailing on the road by 10 points with a minute and a half remaining against UMBC. The Greyhounds needed luck, they needed time and they needed help. The luck came in the form of a stunning shooting streak, when sophomore guard Eric Laster made four consecutive 3-pointers. Senior guard Dylon Cormier was fouled with 11 seconds left, giving him just enough time to convert a free throw and tie the game at 76 apiece. And when UMBC's Rodney Elliott missed two free throws - either one of which would have put the Retrievers ahead with three seconds left - Loyola received the help it needed.

CONCORD, N.H. - Sen. John Kerry, the leader heading into Tuesday's New Hampshire primary, ignored his Democratic rivals during a frigid day of campaigning yesterday, while former Gov. Howard Dean of Vermont tried to turn up the heat on the front-runner. Kerry, winner of last week's Iowa caucuses, kept his focus on defeating President Bush in the fall and avoiding missteps in the final two days of the contest here. A solid primary victory would make the 60-year-old Massachusetts senator the clear favorite for the Democratic nomination when the campaign moves South for a big round of primaries Feb. 3. Dean, meanwhile, was struggling to keep his candidacy from collapsing in New Hampshire, where he led by as many as 20 points just a few weeks ago. He launched a fresh attack against Kerry over the war in Iraq, the issue that lifted Dean out of obscurity last year and caused Kerry problems for months in this state.

Richard Schad of Ellicott City noticed that BWI has recorded no 100-degree days this summer. He asks what our chances are of passing the whole season in only double digits. "And when was the last time that happened?" Chances are good. September has seen only three 100-degree days since 1871. Summers without 100-degree days are common. Last time? Last year. Before that? 2005.

In Baltimore and five neighboring counties, sales closed on nearly 1,540 residences last month, about 200 units more than in January 2012, according to data released Monday by RealEstate Business Intelligence LLC, an affiliate of the region's multiple-listing service. That's about 200 units short of the 10-year average for January sales.

COLLEGE PARK - When Mark Turgeon began addressing the media after his team lost a 12-point second-half lead - and the game - to Florida State, the Maryland coach's voice was hoarse, and his mood was particularly sour. Maryland had won 13 games in a row until the Seminoles ended the streak Wednesday night at Comcast Center with a 65-62 victory. Neither Turgeon nor Maryland's players seemed to quite know how to react to the loss. It had been two months since their last defeat. This one - coming at home, where the Terps were 11-0 -- seemed particularly jarring.

The state university system's Board of Regents approved a 3 percent tuition increase Wednesday for most in-state students, bringing a routine close to a budget process that was briefly thrown into chaos by the General Assembly's inability to agree on a spending plan. Though the university system received $5.3 million in cuts in Gov. Martin O'Malley's proposed $2 billion operating budget for 2013, the trims were not deep enough to force a change in the planned tuition increase. "It's a small enough number that I think the campuses will be able to absorb it without any significant impact to student services or to academic quality," said Chancellor William E. Kirwan of the cut. System workers will not face furloughs, Kirwan said, though most salaries will remain frozen aside from a 2 percent cost-of-living increase scheduled to begin Jan. 1. The presidents of each campus will decide how to implement the cuts.

Maryland held off a furious rally to edge Virginia, 8-7, two months ago, and this game could produce a similar score. If the Terps intend to move into the final, they probably need to win at least half of the faceoffs, shoot considerably better than their 29.3 percent showing thus far, get into double digits as a result, and get one more great game out of goalie Dan McCormick, who has saved 62.6 percent of the shots taken at him. Virginia thinks it...

In the 1990s, it was Xavier that was a thorn in the side of Cincinnati, beating the Bearcats twice when the Bearcats were the top-ranked team. These days, it's the Atlantic 10's Xavier (7-1) that is ranked (No. 17) with the Big East's Cincinnati (4-4) going for the upset. The Musketeers, who have some decent size, have six players averaging in double digits. NBA Pistons@Rockets 8 p.m. [ESPN]

In the dog days of August, Maryland coaches would spend practice after practice working on a player's technique, from where a placekicker plants his foot to where a cornerback moves his eyes. In the dog days of November, the Terps are proving that they are slow learners — as evidenced by what happened in Saturday's 31-10 loss at Wake Forest. Listening to first-year Maryland coach Randy Edsall assess his team's seventh straight defeat and its sixth this season by double digits during his teleconference Sunday, it seemed as if the Terps had lost on a technical knockout.

The temperatures may no longer be topping records as they were for a time in mid-July, but with the dog days of August and early September looming in Anne Arundel County and elsewhere, few are forgetting the importance of finding ways of keeping chill. Take "Kona Chris" O'Kieffe of Edgewater. A year ago, he concluded that the old-style ice cream trucks he'd loved as a boy were a dying institution. A dad himself, he says the trucks have come to seem less than clean, even a little secretive.
