Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said the officials missed a foul committed by Syracuse against Terps swingman Nick Faust with Syracuse leading by one point and seven seconds remaining  in the Orange's 57-55 victory on Monday night. But Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said it is his team - not Maryland -- that earned the right to  gripe about missed foul calls. “Well first of all, let me just tell you this,” Boeheim said. “They shot 27 free throws. If anybody is going to complain about the officiating, I'm going to complain.

With Mike Stankovic, Mark Mettrick, Rusty Troy and fiery Billy Ronson in the lineup, who wouldn't?But the Major Soccer League made it official yesterday, during a conference call hookup with the Competition Committee, that a personal foul rule, officially called "persistent infringement," will be in effect when the season kicks off this weekend.Only the vote of Blast coach Kenny Cooper prevented the passage of the rule from being unanimous.During the just concluded preseason, the league experimented with a three-foul plan, but modified it to four fouls before passing it. A player who earns four fouls in a half will be given a two-minute penalty.

The NFL has suspended Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather for two games for an illegal hit on Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith. Meriweather was penalized for a personal foul for hitting a defenseless receiver in the head and neck area when he struck Smith in the second quarter Saturday night during the Ravens' 23-17 victory. Smith was unhurt on the play. Meriweather also hit Ravens running back Bernard Pierce in the head, causing a concussion and forcing him out of the game, but it was a legal hit. This marks Meriweather's sixth violation of unnecessary roughness rules regarding hits to defenseless players and impermissible use of the helmet.

If you've been watching the NBA playoffs, you know that even though the games feature the kind of contact normally associated with a dock brawl, none of these players ever commits a foul.In fact, judging by their reactions whenever the whistle blows, each player deserves to sit at the right hand of God on Judgment Day. And they're absolutely shocked -- shocked, I tell you -- that anyone would accuse them of overly vigorous play when, clearly, no gentler men ever walked the face of the earth.

COLLEGE PARK -- When Walt Williams took a seat on the Maryland bench a little more than seven minutes into the second half last night against Wake Forest, his four fouls were just as important as his 32 points.While the time he spent there -- 3:12 to be exact -- might have cost the senior guard a chance at the school scoring record, his absence proved even more significant for the Terrapins.Having led the Demon Deacons by as many as 11 points earlier, and by six when he went out, Maryland predictably fell apart without the ACC's leading scorer.

SAN DIEGO -- As if Mark McGwire needed another sign that this was his year, the St. Louis Cardinals slugger caught a foul ball in the fourth inning of the New York Yankees' World Series-clinching game last night after throwing out the first pitch.Baseball's new home run king was in a front-row box seat on the third base side, next to commissioner Bud Selig, when the Yankees' Chuck Knoblauch hit a ground foul.McGwire, whose 70 home runs this year set a major-league record, reached just beyond the railing and one-handed the ball.

As if he wasn't busy enough, agent Ron Shapiro last night caught a foul ball at Camden Yards -- only to have the feat ignored by public-address announcer Rex Barney.Shapiro, who sits in the first row on the far side of the visitors' dugout, was holding ice cream in his left hand when he caught a third-inning foul by Randy Milligan with his right.Barney normally yells, "Give that fan a contract!" under such circumstances. But in this particular case, he refrained.Shapiro didn't need a contract, not after negotiating a five-year, $30.5 million deal to keep Cal Ripken with the Orioles.

Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees was having a conversation with league officials before a recent preseason game when he jokingly said what many defensive backs are thinking these days. His point, though, was valid. "There is more contact now in the NBA than the NFL," Pees said, laughing. "What we are being called for is not a foul in the NBA. If you look in the paint, those guys are pushing, shoving and elbowing each other. "I'm all for safety in the game where they prohibit launching and helmet to helmet, but I don't know where we're headed from here.

The crisis may have eased in Toledo , but the toxic algae in Lake Erie that contaminated the water supply for 500,000 people in Ohio continues to plague lakes and rivers across the country, including here in Maryland. Lake Williston, a swimming hole for a Girl Scout camp in Caroline County, is off limits this summer because of  dangerous levels of a toxin in its water.  So is 75-acre Lake Needwood in Rock Creek Regional Park in Montgomery County.  Same for Northwest Creek, a 100-acre impoundment on Kent Island in Queen Anne's County.

The family of a 10-year-old girl who suffered a fractured skull and cheekbones when she was struck by a baseball before a Baltimore Orioles game last season has filed a lawsuit against the ballclub. According to the lawsuit, Jennifer Dempsey and her stepfather Joseph Kraft attended a baseball game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on August 23, 2013. They arrived at the game early and an usher, whose identity is unknown, told them they had to wait two minutes for the stadium's seating bowl to open.

Towson's story was neatly summarized on the black T-shirts players wore during warm-ups. “Started from the bottom,” the shirts said in block lettering, along with “1-31,” the team's record two seasons ago. Left unsaid was that this moment - the second-seeded Tigers' opening game in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament Saturday night at Baltimore Arena - offered the promise of the next significant step in their ascent. Towson hadn't won a CAA tournament game in four years until it wore down foul-riddled James Madison and prevailed, 80-71, behind 18 points by two-time CAA Player of the Year Jerrelle Benimon and four 3-pointers and 21 points by sophomore guard Four McGlynn.

Police found a decomposing body floating in an industrial area Thursday at the mouth of the Inner Harbor, a grim discovery that marks the ninth time since October a person has turned up dead in the waters of Downtown Baltimore. Investigators say they have found nothing to suggest that the cases might be connected or foul play might have been involved, but officials are puzzled about why there have been so many victims in such a short time. A Baltimore Sun review of the harbor deaths shows a wide variety of circumstances.
