Center Braxton Dupree, who started eight games for Maryland as a promising freshman but played little as a sophomore, has transferred to Towson, the school said Monday. The 6-foot-8 center obtained his release from Maryland in April, but it was uncertain where he was headed until Monday. Dupree (Calvert Hall) had said he wanted to remain close to home. Dupree "has an opportunity to be a real impact player in the [Colonial Athletic Association]," Towson coach Pat Kennedy said in a written statement.

You, Me and Dupree should be just the thing for fans of Owen Wilson's stock-in-trade, the self-absorbed, chronic adolescent with - as inevitably revealed in the final act - a heart of pure gold. The rest of the world, however, is going to wonder what all the fuss is about - when the film is not focused on Wilson, it's really not focused at all. This is a comedy ever holding itself in check, filled with plot threads and asides that seem as though they should be funny but almost always fall short of the mark.

Resplendent in a black tuxedo instead of the desert camouflage he wears in Iraq, Army Spc. Adrian Dupree married Mieasha Pompey before 120 guests last night, the eighth day of his two-week vacation from war. As the bride shook with emotion, the Rev. St. George Crosse performed the ceremony, ending with a prayer as the young couple held each other in a long embrace. Two national television networks and a newspaper photographer recorded the scene. "Go back [to Iraq] knowing that friends and others will be looking out for you, and God will be looking out for you. I talked to Adrian, and he said, `It's my duty to be there,' " Crosse told the crowd at McKenzie's Restaurant, near the Southwest Baltimore neighborhood of Yale Heights, where the couple grew up. Dupree, a reservist in the 352nd Civil Affairs Command based in Riverdale in Prince George's County, was on the first planeload of troops sent home from Iraq for two weeks of rest and relaxation in the midst of their year of service.

Gary Williams said after Saturday's scrimmage that the play of sophomores Braxton Dupree and Jerome Burney, and possibly freshman Steve Goins, will be a key part of Maryland's development. Dupree remains an enigma. As impressed as I was in how he transformed his body during the offseason, losing some 25 pounds, there is still something missing in terms of toughness and heart. Burney plays harder than Dupree, but he still doesn't look like he has much of an offensive game to be a factor.

In East Baltimore, James Dupree sees symptoms of the city's ills: drug dealers on corners, addicts stumbling through streets, and at-risk teen-agers needing relief from urban doldrums. Dupree, 67, knows he can do little about the city's drug problem, but he thinks he can help provide teens with entertaining sanctuaries on Saturday nights: churches. Dupree has asked leaders at several major East Baltimore churches to admit young people ages 13 to 17 on Saturday nights beginning this month.

Their next-door neighbor, they said, was plotting their murder.That intercepted call, and a police investigation, led yesterday to the neighbor's conviction for assault, in what Assistant State's Attorney Andy Alperstein called "one of the most unusual cases I've prosecuted."Michelle L. Collins, 27, of the 4000 block of Rustico Road in eastern Baltimore County, was convicted of assault and another charge in the incident in May. She received a suspended 10-year sentence and five years of probation.

There was plenty of chatter at Loyola's Reitz Arena last Thursday before a Baltimore Summer League game. Players tied their shoes, scarfed down pre-game snacks and talked about NBA free agency before games began on the third night of play in the NCAA-sanctioned basketball league for local college players. The distractions, however, did not bother Towson forward Braxton Dupree, who shot jumpers by himself away from the off-court diversions. The Calvert Hall graduate made a habit of showing up about a half hour before each of his summer league contests.

COLLEGE PARK - If Maryland coach Gary Williams sticks with his plan of using four perimeter players in most games, it means the team's lone big man will have the pressure of being productive on the interior. The play of Maryland's big men in Friday's season-opening, 81-52 win over Bucknell gave more reason for pause than hope going into tonight's game against Youngstown State (0-1) at Comcast Center. Sophomore center Braxton Dupree started the opener and struggled to the point where Williams pulled him for a stretch early in the second half.

COLLEGE PARK - In his first few years coaching basketball at Maryland, Gary Williams often talked about the importance of recruiting players out of Baltimore. But after convincing Keith Booth, Rodney Elliot and Juan Dixon to become Terrapins, Williams heard more about the players who left the city for other schools, most notably Towson Catholic's Carmelo Anthony at Syracuse. That will change this season. Freshman Sean Mosley and sophomores Braxton Dupree and Dino Gregory give Maryland the most Baltimore players it has had at one time in Williams' 20 seasons at his alma mater.

The two women who prayed together yesterday were the most unlikely of spiritual partners -- one, the mother of a teen-ager shot to death Friday, and the other, the mother of the teen police say they believe is the shooter.The women live across the street from each other in their Northeast Baltimore neighborhood of Belair-Edison, but they did not know each other before Friday. That night, police say, Hulbert Stanton-Clark, 19, was shot in the head in the 4100 block of Chesterfield Ave. as he walked home from a basketball game.

The way James and Lyla Dupree see it, there's no good reason for Harlem Park Middle School children to be out after 7 p.m.At that hour, they should be at home. Safe. Doing their homework.So, for the last three weeks, the Duprees have driven around Baltimore, knocked on the doors of strangers and asked, "Do you know where your children are?"The Duprees, who raised nine children in a four-bedroom rowhouse in East Baltimore, are doing what they can to keep kids off the streets at night. The Abell Foundation provided a $17,000 grant to get the program off the ground, but James Dupree, 65, is the force behind it.He said he was the person who persuaded local television stations 20 years ago to promo the 11 p.m. news with the question: "Do you know where your children are?"

COLLEGE PARK -- If a sequence could summarize Braxton Dupree's freshman season at Maryland, it happened in the second half of Wednesday night's home loss to Virginia Tech. Dupree appeared to run out of steam, and Terps coach Gary Williams ran out of patience. Given a chance to play in the first half because of foul trouble to seniors James Gist and Bambale Osby, Dupree responded. On one play, he ripped down a rebound and fired an outlet pass to Greivis Vasquez, who hit a three-pointer.

College Park -- On Nov. 23, Bambale Osby missed Maryland's victory over Lehigh with a stomach ailment. Aided by antibiotics, Osby, who had been the starting center, was ready to play the next game. But he remained on the bench at the start as Braxton Dupree took his place in a win over Illinois. And that's the way it's been since: Dupree, a freshman from Calvert Hall, starting and Osby, a senior, getting significant playing time as a reserve in name only. If there are bruised feelings about the arrangement, no one is expressing them.
