By the end of yesterday's game at Friends, four John Carroll players were bleeding from the head, and another had a knee injury.But the Quakers found a different way to hurt the Patriots even more: by making their foul shots.Friends outscored the Patriots 23-6 from the foul line en route to a 67-62 Maryland Scholastic Association Armstrong Conference win."I think a big difference was the wide desparity at the free-throw line," said John Carroll coach Pat Goles of the B League Division II game.

With a young team and not much depth, McDonogh's girls basketball team can struggle in the most physical games, so it's a good thing their free-throw shooting was on the mark Friday night against St. Frances. The No. 3 Eagles hit 35 free throws to make the difference in a 61-52 win over No. 7 St. Frances that keeps them solidly in second place in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference. The defending conference champion Eagles (9-5) improved to 5-1 in the conference and trail only No. 1 Archbishop Spalding (16-0, 8-0)

If ever there were a time when it appeared Towson was going to end the Drexel hex, it was last night.The Tigers led most of the way against a Drexel team that isn't as imposing as in recent years. But they didn't lead when it mattered most.The Dragons hit three of four foul shots down the stretch and Towson missed three straight at the line in the final 21 seconds, enabling Drexel to escape from the Towson Center with a 65-60 America East victory.Sophomore Joe Linderman, last year's conference Rookie of the Year, scored a career-high 24 points in the Dragons' eighth consecutive win over the Tigers.

Host Bucknell went on a 7-0 run late in the first half that proved to be the difference as the Bison (22-8, 12-2 Patriot League) handed Navy (3-25, 0-14 ) a 64-55 setback in front of an announced 3,894 Saturday. The loss was the Midshipmen's 21st in a row, the longest among Division I men's teams in the nation. Navy trailed just 21-17 on a jumper by James Loupos with 1:42 to play in the opening half, but the Bison scored seven unanswered points, five coming off offensive rebounds, in the final 1:32 of the half to take a 28-17 lead.

Like most tight basketball games, last night's final of the 13th annual Noel Classic girls basketball tournament at Archbishop Spalding was decided at the foul line.No. 4 St. Mary's (8-2) sank seven of 10 foul shots down the stretch to hold off No. 6 Broadneck, 49-42, and repeat as $H tournament champions."We made our foul shots when we had to," said St. Mary's first-year coach Harry Dobson. "We make them shoot 50 foul shots a day, and tonight it paid off."The Saints struggled against Broadneck's half-man, half-zone defense in the early going, and trailed by four at the half, 23-19.

NEW YORK -- The University of Maryland Baltimore County lost a 15-point second-half lead, then used a basket and three late foul shots to turn back Brooklyn College, 78-75, in an East Coast Conference game last night.From a tie at 73, Skip Saunders hit a 16-foot jump shot with 1 minute, 14 seconds remaining, and, with 15 seconds left, Brian Watkins made two free throws for a 77-73 UMBC lead. Brooklyn came right back to score a basket, but Emmanuel Fasaye connected on one of two foul shots with four seconds left for the Retrievers.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Scoring has been a problem for the Washington Bullets all season, and their failure to put the ball in the basket did them in again last night.The Bullets shot 42 percent from the field and 60 percent from the foul line in their fourth straight defeat. The Detroit Pistons held on down the stretch for a 100-93 victory at the Palace of Auburn Hills."We're having a very difficult time scoring," said Bullets coach Wes Unseld.The Bullets converted eight offensive rebounds into 16 points, but Unseld said that wasn't good enough.

They shot 18 percent from the field and missed 23 of 29 three-point attempts.And still nearly won.Against a less physical Parkside team, the top-seeded Wildcats got to within three points in the final minutes before falling, 54-47, at Arundel High School.Though the Wicomico County power will advance to UMBC Friday for the state semifinals, Northwestern coach Lillian Brown said her team's strong showing was something to build on."

INDIANAPOLIS -- When Duke's Brian Davis speaks of teammate Christian Laettner, he uses words like "friend" and "competitor," words that immediately appear to be at loggerheads with each other.Yet to see Laettner, named the outstanding player of the Final Four, out of uniform, then watch him perform is to understand the contradictions, for Laettner is as driven on the floor as he is seemingly low-key off it."He's such a competitor," Davis said of his best friend. "He has such a competitive drive that it rubs off on all of us and makes us better."

Whether it's kidney stones, turnovers or missed free throws by his precocious team, first-year Maryland coach Mark Turgeon is not sleeping well these days. Coming off an embarrassing, turnover-riddled 26-point loss to Iona in Puerto Rico Sunday, Turgeon had a few sleepless nights this week. Friday night's 73-67 win over Florida Gulf Coast, before an announced 12,080 at Comcast Center, was not exactly the REM-inducing remedy Turgeon was seeking. "Like a day in the park, really easy for us," a relieved Turgeon said after the game.

The way things have been going for the Orioles lately, it seemed almost inevitable that the ball would go foul. Melvin Mora's towering drive hung up in the still air on a typical summer night in Baltimore and the Orioles half-expected a freak gust of wind to send it spiraling to the left of the foul pole. However, the ball never hooked, landing on top of the 70-foot-high foul pole before bouncing into the seats. Mora's two-run, sixth-inning homer was the key swing in the Orioles' much-needed 7-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers before an announced 29,111 at steamy Camden Yards.

Senior forward Jonathan Pease had a double double with a team-high 25 points and 11 rebounds yesterday to lead host Towson to an 86-77 victory over rival Drexel. Pease played a strong all-around game, hitting three-pointers early, making layups midway through the game and then converting five of six free throws in the closing 22 seconds to lock up the victory. "Going inside and then hitting those foul shots goes back to high school," said Pease, who went to Chopticon High in Mechanicsville.

National championship on the line. Two free throws, one-point deficit, three seconds left. Who should take the shots? If you're Ohio State, you probably want Ron Lewis, who hasn't missed a foul shot in four NCAA tournament games and is a 78 percent free-throw shooter this season. You might not want Greg Oden's 64 percent; he shot left-handed much of the season because of an injured right wrist. If you're Florida, you want Taurean Green, who stroked 85 percent at the line. You don't want Lee Humphrey, who has taken just 12 foul shots in more than 1,100 minutes this season, none in the tournament.

Three of the Goucher Gophers' starters watched as their team trailed St. Mary's by one point with about a minute to play last night.Their benchings had nothing to do with foul trouble. It was a message being sent by coach Leonard Trevino for what he deemed selfish play.The Gophers rallied from 11- and six-point deficits late in the game but lost, 70-69, before 529 fans at Goucher's Sport and Recreation Center."We've got three starters who need to step up and show it's a team game," Trevino said.

Marylanders will be transfixed over the next few days by a new form of March Madness. It's the General Assembly's attempt to deal with the egregious near-doubling of electricity costs. Perhaps only basketball could distract us from the impending strain on our wallets. Basketball and public utilities aren't related, but for me, the issue contains a grim reminder of the cocaine-induced death of basketball star Len Bias 20 years ago. Administrators at the University of Maryland, College Park found themselves besieged with questions about the academic performance of players on that 1986 team.

Sophomore Desmond Thomas scored the last eight points in the final 2:38, all from the foul line, as St. Frances stunned top-ranked Mount St. Joseph, 46-43, in the Baltimore Catholic League semifinals last night at Loyola College. A three-pointer by the Gaels' Greg Woody got all net but was a tad late as the buzzer sounded. The Panthers (18-15) prevented the Gaels (29-3) from becoming the fifth team in the 34-year history of the tournament to win it three consecutive times. "The result is very disappointing, but I'm proud of the effort our kids put forth," said Mount St. Joseph coach Pat Clatchey, whose Gaels went 13-1 in the BCL to draw the top seed and an invitation to the Alhambra at Frostburg State on March 17-19.
