Anne Arundel County high school students increased their average SAT score for the 2008-2009 school year four points over the previous year, scored nine points higher than the national average and 21 points over the state average. It was the 13th consecutive year that county seniors have seen their scores top national and state averages. "These scores offer proof that our efforts to put programs in place and deliver instruction in a way that will help every student achieve his or her own potential are paying off," said Superintendent Kevin M. Maxwell.

It was going to be Jerrelle Benimon's show. Towson's star forward knew it, his coach knew it and much of the announced crowd of 4,051 at Baltimore Arena probably sensed it as well. Seeking to advance to its first-ever Colonial Athletic Association tournament championship game and take the next big step in the program's revival, second-seeded Towson trailed William and Mary throughout Sunday night's second half. “It's about to get ugly,” Benimon, the two-time CAA Player of the Year, shouted to no one in particular as he ran back on defense after converting a difficult shot with 12:01 left.

Maryland's inability to close out games has become the overarching theme of what has been a disappointing season. As the Terps close out the regular season with a pair of home games, coach Mark Turgeon is hoping that his team can reverse its recent stretch of agonizing defeats. The arrival of last-place Virginia Tech (9-19, 2-14 Atlantic Coast Conference) on Tuesday night might be enough for Maryland (15-14, 7-9) to wipe out the memory of Sunday's 77-73 double-overtime loss at Clemson, the Terps ' third defeat by four points or less in their past four games.

If this season is any indication, the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team will enjoy its entry into the Big Ten Conference. The No. 12 Blue Jays, who announced last June that the program would join the league for the 2015 season, easily took care of future conference foe Michigan, 14-5, before an announced 1,603 at Homewood Field on Saturday. The win, coupled with a 10-9 triple-overtime decision over then-No. 13 Ohio State on Feb. 9, means the Blue Jays (3-0) are 2-0 this year against soon-to-be Big Ten rivals.

The state Board of Public Works on Wednesday gave approval for the Maryland Aviation Administration to spend about $1.05 million to maintain the hotel on the airport grounds, said MAA spokesman Jonathan Dean. The manager of Four Points by Sheraton BWI Airport in September notified the MAA, which owns and operates the airport, that it would close the hotel when its 30-year lease expired at the end of this month. The manager previously noted the 201-room hotel needed updates that would likely cost more than $2 million.

In his first MLL game since June 2012, Powell had four points -- including the tying goal on a diving effort with five seconds left -- to lead the Bayhawks to a 13-12 win, their first overtime victory in four tries this season.

Mark Turgeon can barely bring himself to utter the words NCAA tournament these days. The superstitious Maryland basketball coach will begin shaking his head before a reporter can complete a question about Maryland's chances of advancing to what Turgeon has euphemistically referred to as the “four-letter word” tournament. While Turgeon considers it premature to speculate on Maryland's prospects, he knows that the team suffered a setback when it lost Tuesday night, 69-58, to a Boston College team that shut down Maryland center Alex Len. “I just don't get it,” Turgeon said afterward.

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.

George McClure saw Roddy Peters in an open gym before his sophomore season and knew the wiry point guard was a Division I player. Damon Handon had similar thoughts after watching Peters dominate Prince George's County High School competition throughout his junior year. As recently as four months ago, however, McClure - Suitland High's boys basketball coach - and Handon - D.C. Assault's general manager - were in the minority when it came to assessing Peters' game. Just one Division I program - St. Joseph's - had offered Peters a scholarship heading into his summer on the AAU circuit with Handon's program.

Well played and tightly contested throughout, Thursday night's showdown between No. 1 Dunbar and No. 2 Milford Mill only needed one thing in the fourth quarter - a player to make the difference. Milford Mill senior forward Kyle Thomas was the man. Thomas scored eight of his game-high 18 points in the fourth, and also had three huge blocks to keep the Millers close. Fellow senior forward Isaiah Miles helped with two follow baskets in the final two minutes, and senior guard Tyson Smith chipped in a last-second deflection to give the Millers a 55-53 win at the 16th annual Basketball Academy at Lake Clifton.
