KANSAS CITY, Mo. - For the Blast to earn a spot in the Major Indoor Soccer League playoffs, it was going to have to win a game on the road. The good news was that Baltimore had four games in which to do so, and it could still make the playoffs if the Harrisburg Heat lost. The bad news was the Blast had a 4-10 record away from 1st Mariner Arena this season. The Blast threw that poor record out last night, defeating the Kansas City Comets, 16-11, with a fourth-quarter scoring outburst that also avenged a 17-6 road loss in late February.

Edmondson coach Darnell Dantzler didn't give his team any complex strategies at the start of the fourth quarter on Tuesday night. He just said they needed to increase their intensity if there was any hope of erasing City's eight-point lead. The Red Storm listened to its coach and played harder at both ends of the court. Darius Hubbard scored eight of his game-high 17 points in that final quarter, while No. 11 Edmondson limited No. 8 City to just two baskets from the floor and rallied for a 61-57 victory.

WASHINGTON - U.S. banks are strong and profitable, with "favorable" asset quality, and able to provide financing for a growing economy, Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan said yesterday. "The weakness in credit quality that accompanied the recent recession has clearly been mild, and the system remains strong and well positioned to meet customer needs for credit and other financial services," Greenspan told the Community Bankers Convention in San Diego via satellite. "The outlook for asset quality is also favorable."

The economy grew more rapidly in the final three months of last year than had been thought, the government reported yesterday, and economists said growth could be good this year, too. The gross domestic product rose at a 3.8 percent annual rate in the final quarter, significantly more than the government estimated last month, when the Commerce Department forecast a 3.1 percent increase. The GDP is the measure of all goods and services produced in the United States. The improvement reflected more robust spending by businesses on capital equipment and on inventories of goods.
