There are several reasons that, according to at least one assessment, 2013 timber champion Foyle has been installed as the favorite heading into the 118th running of the Maryland Hunt Cup on Saturday in Glyndon. Gates open at 11 a.m. for a 4 pm. post time for the $75,000 steeplechase race, which will run on what is generally regarded as one of the most daunting courses in the sport. For one thing, Foyle will have a new mount. Highly regarded British amateur rider Sam Waley-Cohen replaces James Slater, who guided the Merriefield Farm 9-year-old to a photo finish in the $30,000 Grand National last weekend in Butler, losing by a nose to Spencer Road.

The day couldn't have turned out better for owner Irv Naylor. And it wasn't too shabby for jockey James Slater, either. With Slater in the saddle, Naylor's Alfa Beat captured the 111th running of the Grand National Steeplechase in Butler, adding a punctuation mark to a four-win performance at the Middleburg (Va.) Spring Races that shot Naylor into the national lead among owners in purses won. All four Naylor horses who prevailed in Virginia were trained by Slater's wife, Brianne.

The last time Colgate played Navy in Annapolis, 11 months ago, the Red Raiders suffered a humiliating 42-point defeat.But yesterday at Alumni Hall, it was Navy on the wrong end of a rout after Colgate pounded the Midshipmen, 89-67, and gained sole possession of the Patriot League lead.The game was not as close as the final margin indicated. Colgate coach Jack Bruen pulled all his starters, including All-America candidate Adonal Foyle (24 points, seven blocks, six rebounds), with 2:34 remaining and the Red Raiders leading 82-54.

Adonal Foyle cannot forget his basketball baptism as a young teen-ager playing in his native island of Canouan in the Grenadines.As Foyle recalled recently, "I got a rebound, put the ball under my arm and ran down the court. I was totally humiliated."Colgate's All-America center, who is certain to be a lottery pick when he graduates in 1998, suffered another major embarrassment in Annapolis last night as Navy trounced the Red Raiders, 79-56, before a roaring crowd of 3,428.It lifted the Midshipmen (14-8, 6-2)

Hamilton, N.Y. -- He did not play basketball until he was nearly 16, and only then with the intention of doing it for a club team back home on Union Island in the Grenadines. Maybe, if his body filled out and his game improved, he could play for the national team of that tiny Caribbean country.But then Adonal Foyle's simple life became a lot more complex: He came to the United States, attended two high schools in three years, lived with two families in disparate settings and became one of the top recruits in America.

HAMILTON, N.Y. -- A month ago in Annapolis, the Navy basketball team limited Colgate's all-time scoring leader, Tucker Neale, to eight points and neutralized 6-foot-10 freshman sensation Adonal Foyle in a 42-point rout.But it was an entirely different story in the Patriot League tournament championship game yesterday as a boisterous, standing-room crowd of 3,100 tested the capacity of cozy Cotterell Court.With Neale scoring a game-high 29 points, and Foyle dominating inside with 16 points, 12 rebounds and six blocks, the Red Raiders beat the Midshipmen, 68-63, and earned Colgate's first trip to the NCAA tournament.

Four years ago, when National Aquarium officials first proposed a new Australia exhibit, they anticipated that hundreds of thousands of Inner Harbor tourists would be spending this summer enjoying the crocodiles, exotic birds and turtles native to the outback's Northern Territory. What they didn't anticipate was their struggle to create a setting unlike anything ever displayed at the aquarium, nor the need to strengthen an aging pier enough to hold a concrete river canyon. With the summer winding down, that has meant that the largest expansion in the aquarium's 24-year history has missed Baltimore's busiest tourism season and officials' original budget estimates, and is past its spring 2005 opening by at least six months and millions over budget.

Good Fences is good satire. The Showtime film from executive producer Spike Lee tells the story of an upwardly mobile African-American couple played with wit and wisdom by Danny Glover and Whoopi Goldberg, as they move through the 1970s. At the heart of the drama is their arrival in Greenwich, Conn., after he wins a promotion at his law firm for successfully defending a white man who set a black vagrant on fire. One of the biggest problems in their life comes not from white racism but rather the arrival of an African-American lottery winner played by Mo'Nique (The Parkers)

Navy's basketball team was a consensus preseason choice to regain the Patriot League men's championship this season, but entering tonight's league opener against Bucknell at Alumni Hall, coach Don DeVoe isn't exuding a lot of optimism. "I haven't been really impressed with this Navy basketball team considering the experience we have," DeVoe said. "We haven't played with the confidence I thought we might. No one asked me who the favorite should be. Lafayette [the defending titlist] certainly would have been my pick."

On the day that Don DeVoe's coaching record at Navy climbed to .500, his team continued to play better than average at home.The Midshipmen rolled over Colgate, 93-51, yesterday at Alumni Hall and moved within a game of second place in the Patriot League.The margin of victory was Navy's largest in its past 271 games, since a 108-63 victory over Delaware during the 1985-86 season.A crowd of 3,386 watched the Mids (15-8, 7-4) go ahead 10-9 on a basket by Larry Green and then pull away, handing Colgate (11-12, 8-3)
