A trip to Houston to face the Astros could be just the right thing to break Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez out of a funk that has resulted in a pair of sub-par starts. Jimenez goes into Thursday's start in Houston with 4-0 record and 2.32 ERA in eight career starts against the Astros. He is also 2-0 with a 2.37 ERA in five starts at Minute Maid Park. He didn't pitch against the Astros when they played in Baltimore earlier this season. His last start against Houston came on Sept.

It's easy enough to look back at the way the Orioles have scored runs the past few weeks and conclude that their once-feared offensive attack has been in crisis, but the problem is a little more complicated than that. What they really have been suffering from is an identity crisis. There has been the occasional short-term flareup, like the middle-inning fireworks display that carried them to victory Tuesday night in Pittsburgh, but the hitters who ravaged American League pitching last year with a major league-leading 212 home runs are still living in 2013 while a variety of negative factors have conspired to change - at least temporarily - the nature of their lineup.

Talk about generation gap. During a Saturday commemoration speech at Morgan State University's commencement, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder lauded Morgan State's band and choir, which  moments earlier had rendered a crowd pleasing performance. Then the 63-year-old Holder turned to the band and asked, “Do you all know Flash Light?” referring to the 1978 hit song by funk troupe Parliament. The song peaked at Number One on the Billboard R&B charts and helped popularize the group's brand of music that became known as P-Funk.

As his team prepares for a much-needed home game Wednesday night after two bad road losses, Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon says his players must pull out of their "funk" and focus on the big picture. In the big picture, Turgeon says, the Terps are 2-2 in the conference. They may not feel like a .500 team after losses of 20 points and 24 points, respectively, to Pittsburgh and Florida State. “Guys got to get themselves out of the funk,” Turgeon said Monday on the ACC's media conference call.

DOWNLOAD: Abdu Ali, "Push + Slay" Sitting outside a Mid-Town Belvedere coffee shop on a warm October afternoon, Abdu Ali Eaton was dressed a lot like his music sounds. He wore beat-to-hell pink-and-yellow Adidas high-tops, black sweatpants that scrunch at the bottom and a vintage Cosby sweater that peaked through a buttoned-up oversize camouflage jacket. It's a messy, couldn't-care-less-what-anyone-thinks collage that defies categorization, yet somehow works in the 23-year-old's hands.

Robert Olson scored a career-high 27 points and a pair of Loyola freshmen helped spark a second-half rally Thursday night, but the Greyhounds (15-8, 7-4 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) lost, 91-79, to Canisius (14-8, 7-4).

Olson scored nine consecutive points to power a 15-4 run, but the Golden Griffins answered with an 11-0 run and led 43-31 at halftime.

Frequent Midnight Sun contributor Evan Haga caught the Red Hot Chili Peppers show in Washington last night. Here's his take: The most impressive thing about the Red Hot Chili Peppers' sold-out show last night at D.C.'s Verizon Center had more to do with what the band played than how they played it. The Chili Peppers formed in Los Angeles 28 years ago - an eternity in pop - and they're beginning to reap the nostalgic rewards of...
