As the Ravens enter unfamiliar territory — conducting a draft before free agency because of the lockout — team officials were asked if they were in agreement over the Ravens' biggest area of need. Ravens coach John Harbaugh glanced at general manager Ozzie Newsome, who then looked at director of player personnel Eric DeCosta and scouting director Joe Hortiz. "We can't agree on who should answer that question," Harbaugh said with a smile at Tuesday's pre-draft luncheon. While Harbaugh was joking, the Ravens have a clear vision on who they'll be taking with the 26th overall pick next week — a playmaker.

BOWIE -- As a free-agent outfielder playing in Venezuela last winter, Adam Loewen hoped to show enough to earn a chance in spring training. And then he realized that his best shot to get back to the major leagues might be what originally got him there: his prized left arm. Now with the Reading Fightin Phils, the Philadelphia Phillies' Double-A affiliate, Loewen came with his team to Double-A Bowie this week. "It's like I'm starting over every five years at something different," Loewen said Tuesday.

Penn State women's lacrosse coach Missy Doherty enjoyed her first trip back to Towson since leaving the Tigers two years ago to take over the Nittany Lions' program. The Tigers didn't enjoy the visit so much. From the fourth minute of Saturday's game, eighth-seeded Towson had to play catch up and never made it all the way back as Penn State took a 15-8 victory in the NCAA Division I tournament first round at Johnny Unitas Stadium. Instead of the Tigers advancing to the quarterfinals for the first time, the Lions will travel to No. 1-seeded Florida on Saturday . The game figured to be closer with two of the nation's top goalies, Towson's Mary Teeters and Penn State's Dana Cahill , but the Lions were the only team other than Maryland and Syracuse to slip 13 goals past Teeters.

Just 21, Ryan Harrison has a pretty mature understanding of what it takes to make it on the ATP tour. "You've got to love the process," Harrison said after his 6-3, 7-5 win over former world No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt on Tuesday in a first-round Citi Open match at William H.G. FitzGerald Tennis Center. "No matter how tense any moment can get out there, it's what we live for, it's what we play for. " That mantra will be worth recalling today, when he will meet top-seeded Juan Martin Del Potro, a Wimbledon semifinalist and two-time Citi Open champion, in the second round.

Politicians and pundits are often blind to the political effects of sanctions ( "Standing up to Moscow," July 29). But history shows that placing sanctions on Russia is likely to backfire. After the first round of sanctions, Russian President Vladimir Putin's approval rating skyrocketed to a record 83 percent. Thanks to the U.S., the Moscovian menace can now use sanctions to unite Russians against the West and rally support to his side. Moreover, sanctions increase the likelihood of forceful retaliation in 95 percent of instances because leaders tend to escalate conflicts to save their own and their country's reputation.

BETHESDA - Tiger Woods had a feeling his first competitive round in more than three months after back surgery was not going to be easy. It was not his back that gave the 38-year-old Woods trouble in Thursday's opening round of the Quicken Loans National at Congressional Country Club. It was his hands. The touch around the greens that has often eluded Woods since he won the last of his 14 major championships six years ago was missing until the final six holes, when three birdies helped him overcome a terrible start to finish with a 3-over par 74. Still, Woods didn't make a putt longer than 10 feet, missed several short birdie and par save possibilities, and didn't chip particularly well.

Maryland's men's basketball season will continue in the NIT, where the Terps are a No. 2 seed and will open Tuesday night at Comcast Center against seventh-seeded Niagara of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. If Maryland (22-12) defeats Niagara (19-13) - the game is on ESPN2 - the Terps would get a second home game against the winner of third-seeded Denver and sixth-seeded Ohio. If the Terps advanced, they would then face a team from the side of the bracket that includes Alabama and Stanford.

Despite re-signing left tackle Eugene Monroe, tight end Dennis Pitta and wide receiver Jacoby Jones, adding veteran playmaker Steve Smith and hiring a new coordinator, the Ravens still have work left to do this offseason to improve an offense that plummeted to 29th in total yards and 25th in scoring in 2013. The only offensive position where they don't need to add talent and depth appears to be quarterback. So might the Ravens use their top pick on offense? It's been a quite a while since they have done that.
