As "The Bachelorette" winds down, we're already looking forward to the next batch of hopeless romantics ("Bachelor Pad" starts July 23 featuring Kalon and his butt chin). We got a sneak peak last Thursday at the Bachelor/Bachelorette casting call. Though I don't think anyone from Baltimore made the cut, it was a sight to see: hundreds of girls in their smallest dresses and highest heels, and a handful of guys with no clue. I think a few of them thought they were auditioning for "My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding.

Opening number: The women are wearing white nightgowns and have Pinterest hair. The men are wearing white suits. Nobody's wearing shoes, and they're dancing to an extremely overwrought version of "The Wind Beneath My Wings. " Not my favorite routine ever on this show. Your final four are Jessica Richens, Valerie Rockey, Zack Everhart, Jr. and Ricky Ubeda. Travis Wall did the opening number, which is why the men were touching each other in a possibly non-platonic way. He's just about the only choreographer they let get away with that.

COLLEGE PARK - They had been traveling much of the night, but no matter. Hours after returning from a victory that sent them into the Final Four, Maryland's women's basketball players - giddy with fatigue and joy - stood on a balcony in the Stamp Student Union during Wednesday's lunch hour waving to fans and shooting silly videos. The impromptu celebration was organized informally by the Terps themselves, using social media. "We actually kind of made our own pep rally," senior guard Sequoia Austin said Thursday.

A six-year absence from the NCAA semifinals would usually sound the alarm at Johns Hopkins, where national championships are not a dream but almost an expectation. It's the longest drought in program history and one that has not escaped the notice of coach Dave Pietramala. But rather than hide from the disappointment, Pietramala is meeting it head-on. “That's the goal, and you want to meet your goals,” he said of reaching the Final Four. “We re-established the standard and raised the bar a little bit [by reaching the quarterfinals last month after sitting out the NCAA tournament in 2013]

I took my kids to [Michael] Jordan's last game at the Stadium. I'm thrilled to have him back," said Dekas. "It's only when you've followed a team for that long when they start doing well do you appreciate what you've got. We've struggled for so many years with the Chicago Cubs being losers.

The Orange are gelling By Shannon Ryan, Chicago Tribune The one team everyone dissed could be the best bet to land in the Final Four. Syracuse, which started the season unranked, looks primed to find itself in Indianapolis along with Kansas, Kentucky and Texas. The Orange have a star in Wesley Johnson. They have power in the post with Arinze Onuaku and Rick Jackson. They have a strong perimeter shooting from Andy Rautins and Brandon Triche. And they have solid reserves in Scoop Jardine and Kris Joseph.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Among the many accomplishments in the decorated career of Maryland women's basketball player Alyssa Thomas, the Final Four had been elusive for the school's career scoring leader until Tuesday night. Only hours after being named first-team All-American for a second time, the senior forward scored a team-high 22 points with a game-high 13 rebounds and made a critical foul shot in the closing seconds to help the No. 4 seed in the Louisville Region secure a 76-73 victory over No. 3 seed Louisville in the NCAA tournament's round of eight in front of an announced 14,002 at KFC Yum Center.

Ravens looking good Ken Murray Baltimore Sun In the absence of any truly dominant teams — no, the Saints don't qualify with their defense — the race is wide open. Starting in the AFC, the Colts probably aren't going to flirt with perfection again, and the Patriots still are clearing the rubble from a wicked playoff loss to the Ravens. Because of all their upgrades, I like the Ravens to challenge the Chargers in the AFC title game.

Whew! The final four contestants on “The Voice” were busy-sy-sy last night, performing three times each. It's getting down to the wire for Jermaine Paul, Juliet Simms, Chris Mann and Tony Lucca, and Monday was their last shot at wooing America before the season finale tonight. For some of them, it worked. Now, since each finalist performed three times - once in tribute to their coach, once with their coach, and once solo - America can only vote on their solo performance.

Beth Glaros believes she's been a Terp all her life. The only starting senior on the Maryland women's lacrosse team, Glaros followed her parents, who met at Maryland, to College Park and also has two brothers and several members of her extended family who went there. She grew up with a red wardrobe, but when the high-scoring midfielder from Wilde Lake began considering college lacrosse programs, she looked around before settling on Maryland.  "During the recruiting process, I took all my visits and went to a lot of places because I wasn't sure where I wanted to go," said Glaros, "but Maryland was always in the back of my mind.

Prior to a date with Maryland in a semifinal of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament on April 25, Notre Dame was on the cusp of being eliminated from postseason consideration. A loss would have given the Fighting Irish a 6-6 record with only a regular-season finale against Army remaining on the schedule, and qualifying for the NCAA tournament requires at least a .500 record. But Notre Dame removed all uncertainty by edging Maryland and Syracuse for the ACC championship and earning the league's automatic qualifier for the NCAA postseason.

On Memorial Day 2007, the possibilities for lacrosse seemed limitless. A record 123,225 fans had flocked to M&T Bank Stadium that weekend to watch the NCAA men's championships, and they were rewarded with a thrilling final between local favorite Johns Hopkins and perennial power Duke. The three-day event had drawn similar crowds the year before in Philadelphia and would again the next year in Foxborough, Mass. Youth participation was skyrocketing in states that had barely known the game 20 years earlier.

COLLEGE PARK - Even though Maryland went into halftime of Saturday's NCAA Division I women's lacrosse tournament quarterfinal against Duke with a six-goal lead, the No. 1 Terps wanted to make a statement coming out of the break. They emerged from the locker room to score three goals in the first three minutes to all but seal a 15-8 victory at Maryland's Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex and earn their 22nd overall - and sixth straight - trip to the final four. "We came out of halftime with a lot of fire," Terps midfielder Taylor Cummings said.

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - The Maryland men's lacrosse team beat Bryant at its own game. Taking advantage of junior faceoff specialist Charlie Raffa's dominance and an opportunistic offense, the seventh-seeded Terps scored the first four goals and never looked back as they cruised to a 16-8 thumping of Bryant in their NCAA tournament quarterfinal Saturday. A stadium-record, sellout crowd of 13,447 at Hofstra's James M. Shuart Stadium watched Maryland (13-3) advance to its third Final Four berth in the past four years and 22nd overall.

Prior to Sunday night's NCAA tournament semifinal against No. 4 Stevenson, No. 12 and reigning national champion Salisbury had advanced to nine of 10 Final Fours and won every single one to advance to the title game. That did not happen against the Mustangs, who registered a convincing 12-6 victory over the Sea Gulls at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills. While the Stevenson players and coaches celebrated with their fans, Salisbury (17-6) huddled in front of the net on its side of the field and got some words of wisdom from coach Jim Berkman.

The daughter of an NBA player or coach must make certain sacrifices. The league's time commitment could hardly be more demanding. Maryland freshman guard Lexie Brown is a realist. She knows that her father - Sacramento Kings assistant coach Dee Brown - would have a difficult time breaking away from his team to watch Lexie and the Terps in Sunday night's Final Four game against undefeated Notre Dame in Nashville, Tenn. But she remained hopeful. “Every year since about 10th grade he's really missed a lot of my basketball seasons, but he's always managed to make it to the state playoffs and now the Elite Eight game,” she said Thursday.

Washington College's 12-11 decision over 2013 national champion Stevenson in an NCAA tournament quarterfinal at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills on Wednesday night could be the turning point for a program that has been dormant for almost a decade. The Shoremen (18-1) will meet top-seeded Salisbury (20-1) on Sunday in the program's first national semifinal since 2004, and the significance of Wednesday's win over the Mustangs (19-3) was not lost on senior attackman Jim Cusick. “It's huge,” said the Calvert Hall graduate, who paced Washington College with six points on five goals and one assist.

As the youngest girls lacrosse program in Carroll County, upstart Manchester Valley doesn't yet have the reputation, or the championship banners, of some of the county's more established teams. On Thursday night, however, the host Mavericks rallied for what very well could be their defining win. Down by three goals midway through the second half against No. 13 Century - a state finalist each of the past five years - No. 12 Manchester Valley closed the game with four straight goals, including the game-winner by sophomore Lizzie Colson with 3:15 left, in a 10-9 win. "We're a small school, but this is such a big statement," Colson said.
