PHILADELPHIA - For the first time in the 11-year history of the new version of the Major Indoor Soccer League, the Blast will be playing for the championship. That was assured last night when three early goals and a standout defense carried Baltimore's entry to an 8-6 victory and the Eastern Conference title, dethroning the defending league-champion Philadelphia KiXX before 3,927 at the First Union Spectrum. The result put perhaps the hottest team in the MISL into a three-game title series against the survivor of Sunday's one-game Western Conference showdown between Milwaukee and Kansas City.

Around the time they entered the locker room after their 114-93 victory Monday over the two-time defending champion Miami Heat's B team, the Washington Wizards were feeling good on two fronts. First, the win helped them hold on to the sixth seed and move within one-and-a-half1/2 games of the Brooklyn Nets in the Eastern Conference. And second, the Atlanta Hawks entered the fourth quarter against the seventh-place Charlotte Bobcats with a 15-point lead. But by the time the locker room had cleared, leaving only John Wall remaining to speak to reporters, the Bobcats had rallied to defeat the Hawks, 95-93, on a running jumper by Chris Douglas-Roberts, making sure the final day of the regular season will matter.

Morgan State ranks second in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference against the pass, allowing just 146.1 yards per game through the air. But the lofty ranking masks a troubling issue. The Bears (2-6, 2-2 MEAC) have just 11 sacks this season, fewest in the league. At their current rate, they are on pace to finish 2013 with 16 1/2 sacks. The defense failed to get to Howard junior quarterback Greg McGhee during Morgan State's 28-14 loss to the Bison last Saturday, and coach Donald Hill-Eley said passers like McGhee are becoming faster and more adept at getting the ball out of their hands.

The Morgan State football team lost its first five games of the season, including its Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference opener against Norfolk State. Despite that slow start, however, the program is firmly entrenched in the race for the league championship. That's because the Bears have won their last two conference games, defeating Florida A&M, 34-21, on Oct. 5 and North Carolina Central, 34-22, last Saturday. Those victories have helped Morgan State (2-5 overall and 2-1 in the MEAC)

At 0-5, the Morgan State football team is off to its worst start since 2000 and opened its Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference campaign with a 27-21 loss to Norfolk State on Saturday. Despite having to fight an uphill battle, coach Donald Hill-Eley said the program's preseason goals are still attainable. He pointed out that the Bears are just one game behind North Carolina A&T (3-0 overall and 1-0 in the league), South Carolina State (3-2, 1-0), Delaware State (1-3, 1-0) and Norfolk State (1-3, 1-0)

Bulls will be kings Tom Yantz Hartford Courant The allegiance for the Celtics is strong in New England, as it should be. With Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and company, they are always a team to be reckoned with. But they're no longer the best in the East. The Bulls will be No. 1. Coach Tom Thibodeau, the defensive mastermind and former Celtics assistant coach, has infused his team with confidence and an acute defensive mindset. The Bulls have the coach of the year and the MVP in Derrick Rose.

1. Washington Capitals 2009-10 record: 54-15-13, 121 points. Power play: 25.2% (first). Penalty killing: 78.8% (25th). Team goals-against average: 2.72 (16th). Leading scorer: Alexander Ovechkin 50-59 — 109. Outlook: They squandered a 3-1 series lead and lost to the eighth-seeded Canadiens in the playoff's first round, which should spark them. Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom (33 goals, 68 assists) were the only teammates to exceed 100 points last season, and Mike Green led NHL defensemen in scoring with 76 points.

ORLANDO, Fla. - - When the last horn finally sounded Saturday night, the Orlando Magic and their fans partied like it was 1995. The sellout crowd inside Amway Arena roared. White, blue and silver confetti fell from the ceiling. The Magic had closed out the Eastern Conference finals in six games and ended Madison Avenue's dreams of a Kobe Bryant-LeBron James championship matchup. Kobe versus Dwight will have to do. With Dwight Howard leading the way with 40 points and 14 rebounds, the Magic defeated the top-seeded Cleveland Cavaliers, 103-90, to earn their first trip to the NBA Finals in 14 years.
