One stat from the Ravens' 29-14 victory over the Houston Texans on Oct. 16 that doesn't get discussed often was both teams' inefficiency on third downs. The Ravens converted just three of 11 third downs, producing a 27.3 percent success rate that was their second lowest of the season. The offense went just 1-for-6 on third downs in the second half. Only two of those 11 third downs involved gaining fewer than 4 yards for first downs, and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron said the team has tried to address any breakdowns on third downs.

BOYS BASKETBALL No. 15 Marriotts Ridge @ Reservoir Tomorrow, 5:30 p.m. Outlook: The Mustangs, who were 17-2 overall and 14-1 in the county going into Monday's game against Atholton, took over sole possession of first place after beating Howard, 61-51, on Thursday. A win could go a long way in assuring a berth in the county championship game. Both teams rely on talented seniors, with the Mustangs looking to G Kevin Seker's three-point shooting and ability to get to the basket, while the Gators have a big inside presence in 6-foot-5 C Billy Reybold.

Johns Hopkins has won all six meetings in its series with Villanova, which is resuming for the first time since 2002. The Blue Jays have outscored their opponents, 82-61, while going 5-2 at home, while Villanova has outscored its opponents, 69-67, in its 3-4 record on the road. The Wildcats (5-7) have won four of their last six games, but an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament seems unlikely. They do have the Big East tournament AQ as a means to NCAAs. Senior long-stick midfielder John LoCascio has recorded four goals and 12 assists this season and is ranked fifth in Division I in caused turnovers per game (2.3)

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on three topics from the past week in Maryland sports. How would you rate the Maryland women's chances against Notre Dame in Sunday night's Final Four? Jeff Barker: The Terps will be the underdog, of course. Again. I think they can hang with the Irish - they did on Jan. 27, losing 87-83. In order to prevail, Maryland would need an even stronger game than it played in eliminating Louisville in the Elite Eight . That was a game in which Maryland was energized and willful, but the Terps were hardly flawless at the end. Maryland's advantage on Sunday is inside.

It's not often that two Top 10 Division I women's lacrosse teams play each other for the first time, but the Atlantic Coast Conference shuffle brings No. 2 Maryland and No. 6 Notre Dame together for their inaugural meeting Saturday at noon. In Maryland's final season in the ACC and Notre Dame's first, the two are on an upswing. The Terps (8-0) are 2-0 in the ACC after Monday's 12-10 win at No. 3 Syracuse. The Irish (6-2) are 1-2 in the ACC with losses to No. 1 North Carolina and No. 5 Boston College, but they have won four in a row, including a 9-8 upset of then-No.

Swiveling in the pocket as he eyed the Ravens' coverage schemes during the AFC championship game last January, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady certainly didn't lack for inviting targets downfield. Brady threw to tight end Aaron Hernandez and wide receivers Wes Welker and Brandon Lloyd. During a 28-13 loss at Gillette Stadium, he passed with 320 yards for one touchdown and two interceptions. Heading into Sunday's rematch against the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium, however, Brady is no longer so fortunate.

The first time the Ravens' defense squared off with Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell, he manufactured his most productive NFL game. The Ravens say they've learned a lot about how to defend Bell after surrendering 93 yards on 19 carries to the 6-foot-1, 244-pound second-round draft pick during a 19-16 loss to the Steelers on Oct. 20 at Heinz Field. Heading into Thursday night's rematch at M&T Bank Stadium, Bell is a focal point for the Ravens, who have the NFL's 11th-ranked run defense.

The Annapolis City Council approved a new vision plan for downtown's City Dock shortly after midnight Tuesday, the culmination of a process that stretched over three years and became a top issue for next week's city election. Starting with the creation of a citizen's advisory committee and ending with an 8-1 vote in the wee hours of the morning in the nearly-empty council chambers, the City Dock process has been fraught with disagreements over parking, traffic and how the historic area could be allowed to be redeveloped in the future without ruining its maritime charm.

OAKLAND, Calif. - A week ago, Manny Machado was about to head onto the field from the dugout at Camden Yards when someone yelled out to him, "Hey Manny. " It's not an unusual occurrence these days for the young third baseman, who is increasingly becoming the center of attention for fans and national media. But this one was different. It was Hall of Fame third baseman Brooks Robinson who wanted a few seconds of Machado's time. "He actually called me out, 'Hey Manny,' and he introduced himself," Machado said.
