The Coppin State men's basketball team appeared en route to a rout in the first half of last night's Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game against Howard. The Eagles had little trouble at either end and took a 19-point lead after 11 minutes. But that's when Coppin State seemed to lose momentum. Howard made 12 three-pointers to make the game closer, and the Eagles needed Darryl Proctor's 22 points and 10 rebounds to pull out a 75-66 victory at the Coppin Center. The win helped first-place Coppin State (11-12, 11-3 MEAC)

For months after her teen-age daughter died in a car accident at East Oliver Street and Broadway last July, Gina Gant couldn't bring herself to go near the intersection. Her daughter, Tiffany Gant, had just celebrated her 18th birthday when the car she was riding in collided with a police cruiser. The Dunbar High School honors graduate had planned to attend Coppin State College and become a criminal defense attorney. But in November, something else happened at the intersection that helped to ease her mother's pain a bit. A bright red-and-white street sign proclaiming "Tiffany Gant Way" went up, marking the corner in her daughter's memory.
