Playing junior college basketball in Missouri, Evan Singletary was mostly recruited by Division I programs in the South and the Midwest. But the former Dunbar guard was hoping for more East Coast schools to come after him. "I wanted to be closer to my daughter," said Singletary, who graduated from Dunbar in 2012 and enrolled at Moberly Area Community College the following fall. "She's 3 months [old] now.

Anyone looking through the fence as the season's first football practice was about to get underway Wednesday at Dunbar's East Baltimore field saw a bunch of guys in helmets and shorts and T-shirts tossing footballs, stretching or just talking. Everything appeared the same as any other year and that's exactly what Dunbar athletic director Dana Johnson wanted as preseason practice began for the Poets and all other fall sports team at Maryland public schools. Despite being without coach Lawrence Smith, who is appealing a one-year suspension for his handling of an alleged locker-room hazing incident last fall, the Poets are moving on with business as usual under interim coach Michael Carter, the Poets' defensive coordinator for the past few years.

Dunbar football coach Lawrence Smith said Tuesday he would not support a boycott of the fall season by Poets players as a means of protesting his one-year suspension. At a meeting Monday night attended by about 40 parents and football players, some players talked about boycotting the season after Smith, who led the Poets to five state titles in his seven years as head coach, was suspended in the aftermath of a Baltimore City Public Schools investigation into an alleged hazing incident last fall in the Dunbar locker room.

Dunbar coach Lawrence Smith knows which William Crest moment is his favorite. Crest, the Dunbar quarterback, had already scored two rushing touchdowns against City this past October when the Poets faced a fourth-and-9 from the Knights' 12-yard line, trailing 26-22. The call with 12.4 seconds remaining was a pass, but the senior saw an opening to the left and darted down the sideline, stopping only after his outstretched arms toppled the front pylon of the end zone for the game-winning score.

Host Ben Franklin-Masonville Cove (11-4) used a trio of 12-point scorers and switching defenses to keep No. 15 Dunbar (8-8) off balance in the second half for a 62-56 win Tuesday. The Poets, led by Keshawn Hampton with a game-high 16 points, brought the pressure in the first half and built a 33-26 halftime lead. But in the second half, Ben Franklin settled down and kept switching zone defenses every two possessions, which frustrated Dunbar and led to turnovers and the lead. Tre Henriques, Terry Page and Robert Goodwin each scored 12 points for the Bayhawks in the upset.
