The stars did their share in Wednesday's boys basketball showdown between No. 1 Mount St. Joseph and No. 3 St. Frances. Mount St. Joseph senior guard Phil Booth helped the visiting Gaels build an 11-point advantage in the third quarter, and St. Frances senior Dwayne Morgan made big shots to get the Panthers back in the game shortly after. In the closing minutes, however, it was St. Frances sophomore guard Daquan Bracey who made the difference. Bracey scored seven of his 17 points in the final two minutes - two free throws, a pivotal three-point play and two more from the foul line - to give the host Panthers a character-building 60-51 win over the Gaels.

Angel McCoughtry led the WNBA in scoring this season for the second year in a row. She was second in steals per game and a member of the All-WNBA Second Team, too. She has earned other accolades as well, including All-WNBA First Team honors in 2011 and Rookie of the Year in 2009. But something is missing for the Baltimore native: a WNBA championship. McCoughtry and her Atlanta Dream teammates are looking to change that starting Sunday with the first game of the WNBA Finals against the Minnesota Lynx.

From: Coteaux du Languedoc, France Price: $15 Serve with: Grilled red meat, hearty stew This grenache-syrah red blend from the south of France delivers a lot of black cherry, blackberry and Mediterranean herb flavor. It's a full-bodied, moderately complex, earthy wine with enough tannic backbone to age and improve, but it's smooth enough to drink now. It's a Kysela Pere & Fils import, which is always a good sign. -- Michael Dresser

Melissa Otterbein never has thought of herself as a world-class athlete, just someone who was persistent and worked hard to achieve her goals. At Towson University, where she was a member of the swimming team, Otterbein made the Colonial Athletic Association championships twice in her four years. Otterbein, who grew up outside Philadelphia and has remained in Baltimore after graduating four years ago, has another goal that appears a little more challenging: She is trying to get the Tour de France to hold a race for women.

In the second quarter of St. Frances' football game Sunday against Friendship Collegiate at Byrd Stadium, the Panthers showed the value of the old adage “If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.” After the Panthers were forced to punt on their first drive of the quarter, Arizona-bound Jonathan Haden caught the ball and took off. As the Panthers brought him down, he lost the ball and Mike Bell recovered for St. Frances. Flags flew and both teams were penalized - the Panthers for a personal foul and the Knights for a block in the back.

COLLEGE PARK - Through the first half Sunday, St. Frances' football team stuck close to Friendship Collegiate Academy from Washington D.C., the best team the Panthers have played in the five-year history of their program. In the third quarter, however, Friendship took advantage of short field position and four Panthers turnovers to score four touchdowns and come away with a 32-6 victory in the Brothers In Arms Classic at Byrd Stadium. The Knights (2-0) gave St. Frances a rude awakening to the kind of competition they can expect the rest of the season with a schedule that includes such Maryland powerhouses as Gilman, Good Counsel and DeMatha.
