There were moments when Kanu Aja thought about giving up basketball. The 6-foot-9, 245-pound power forward attended four high schools - two of which closed - in five years, in addition to battling injury and weight issues. The adversity didn't end there. Aja, who “moved around a lot” in Baltimore and Howard counties, had minimal college interest and ended up across the country at a junior college that doesn't give out scholarships. “JUCO basketball is nuts,” said Justin Labagh, Aja's coach at the City College of San Francisco.

With the Ravens needing to cut down their roster from 75 to 53 by Saturday at 6 p.m., there will undoubtedly be some anxious moments for many players over the next two days. However, recent history suggests that the 10 members from the team's 2013 draft class shouldn't worry. The last time the Ravens released a player they drafted a couple of months earlier was in 2009 when they cut ties with fifth-round pick, tight end Davon Drew (East Carolina), and sixth-round selection, running back Cedric Peerman (Virginia)

Three Greyhounds scored in double digits, but it wasn't enough as Loyola's season came to an end Tuesday night in a 70-58 loss to East Carolina in the quarterfinals of the CollegeInsider.com tournament. Though the game was tied at halftime and as late as the 10:49 mark in the second half, the Pirates used an 8-0 run to jump ahead. Loyola never got closer than six the rest of the way. Dylon Cormier (Cardinal Gibbons) led the Greyhounds with 12 points and eight rebounds, but he shot just 5-for-20 from the field.

While preparing his team for last Saturday's game against Duke, Navy football coach Ken Niumatalolo repeatedly spoke of the hazards of prosperity. The Midshipmen had won three in a row (including a thumping of Notre Dame on national television), received votes in the Associated Press Top 25 and were feeling indomitable with the Blue Devils coming to Annapolis for what looked to be a homecoming romp. So Niumatalolo warned his players about the perils of treating Duke as a gimme. The Blue Devils might have dropped six consecutive games, but overlooking a team with little at stake other than personal accountability could spell disaster.

Minutes after finishing his first collegiate start, Navy senior quarterback Brian Hampton looked weary and sounded displeased with his performance. Never mind that Hampton had rushed 34 times for 149 yards, the most by a Navy quarterback in nearly two years. Never mind that Hampton had spearheaded the Midshipmen's triple option in a hard-earned, 28-23 victory over East Carolina, in the season opener for both teams before 33,809 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium last night.

Loyola's first game in the CollegeInsider.com tournament required a substantial second-half comeback against Boston University. Nothing of the sort was required in Sunday's second round. The Greyhounds never trailed en route to a workmanlike 73-59 defeat of Kent State before 747 at Reitz Arena to clinch a spot in the CIT quarterfinals. Erik Etherly had 27 points and 11 rebounds and Dylon Cormier added 18 points as Loyola (23-11) advanced to face East Carolina (20-12) in Greenville, N.C., on Tuesday.

Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo was standing on the field at Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland, before his team's season opener against Notre Dame, talking with longtime defensive line coach Dale Pehrson about the collective inexperience of the Midshipmen. "I thought we were as talented as we've ever been," Niumatalolo said Monday. "We just looked around, and Dale looked at me said, 'I feel good about where we are at as a program,' and I said, 'So do I.' "And then we got our brains beat in, 50-10.

The initial diagnosis was a sprained right knee. But as the two weeks Matt Aiken expected to miss turned into a month and the 2012 Navy football season began without him, the junior wide receiver made a rare request for an athlete at the academy. Aiken wanted to know if he could redshirt. The answer came back quickly, before his knee healed and as Navy got off to its worst start in a decade. Aiken, who would miss the first four games, said he was told that taking a redshirt - sitting out a season without losing a year of eligibility - was done at the academy only when an athlete was unable to attend class because of an injury.

This wasn't South Carolina or East Carolina, Rutgers or San Jose State. This certainly wasn't Air Force, either. A frustrating Navy football season previously punctuated by narrow defeats and botched kicks ended with a sloppy but satisfying 27-21 victory Saturday at FedEx Field before a crowd of 80,789 that included President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. Navy (5-7) finished its first losing season in nine years with its 10th straight victory over Army (3-9). It was the closest game in the 112-game rivalry since a 30-28 win for the Midshipmen in 2000.

Navy defensive coordinator Buddy Green doesn't want to hear about the injuries that have depleted his unit, from the line to the secondary. He doesn't want to talk about the fact that the Midshipmen will start two freshmen in the secondary and a junior lineman making his first college start Saturday here against Notre Dame. Green, now in his 10th season at Navy, doesn't have to look at the NCAA statistics to know that among the 120 Football Bowl Subdivision teams, Navy (2-5) ranks near the bottom of several defensive categories that relate to its pass rush (110th in sacks)

The Morgan State men's basketball program is progressing, step by step. It made another move forward last night at Hill Field House, parlaying a strong defensive and rebounding effort into a 76-70 victory over East Carolina, a member of Conference USA. The outcome reversed an earlier result when the Bears opened the season in Greenville, N.C., and absorbed a 19-point whipping from the Pirates (4-5), who have lost four games in a row. "We're getting better, and I told them I'm proud of them," Morgan coach Todd Bozeman said.

Standing on the home team's sideline at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium early Saturday night, Ricky Dobbs had a feeling that he was reliving his past. "I was thinking, 'Yeah, this looks all so familiar,' " Dobbs recalled in a telephone interview Tuesday night. Dobbs, Navy's record-setting former quarterback who is now coaching at the academy's prep school, was watching sophomore Trey Miller lead the Midshipmen on a wild fourth-quarter comeback against East Carolina. Miller had come in when senior Kriss Proctor suffered a dislocated elbow in the second quarter.

While Navy listed either Kriss Proctor or Trey Miller as the starting quarterback on its football depth chart going into Saturday's game at Notre Dame, the sling Proctor was wearing to support his left arm at practice Monday in Annapolis seemed to indicate where the decision was headed. Proctor, a senior who became a fulltime starter for the first time this season, disclocated the elbow on his throwing arm in the second quarter of last Saturday's game against East Carolina. Miller, a sophomore who had played sparingly this season, nearly led the Midshipmen to a comeback victory before Navy fell to the Pirates, 38-35.
