EMMITSBURG -- UMBC is freshman-laden, prone to youthful mistakes and improving daily.Mount St. Mary's is wounded, almost devoid of an inside presence and very reliant on its three-point shooting.So, when they collided last night for the second time this season, it figured to be close with the Mount having a slight edge because of Knott Arena.But the upstart Retrievers wouldn't go away, capitalizing on the hot shooting of freshman Rich Giddens and the backboard dominance of Kennedy Okafor to win in overtime, 79-77.

Vanessa Gidden hit a 10-foot bank shot with 23 seconds left in overtime to help lift the Hofstra women's basketball team over host Towson, 72-69, last night. The Tigers (12-9, 5-5 Colonial Athletic Association) led 56-55 with 3:01 left in regulation before Cigi McCollin (13 points) hit four straight free throws to force the overtime. Towson took the lead again in overtime at 65-61, but a three-pointer from Charlotte Baldrey-Chourio gave Hofstra (10-9, 5-5) its first lead since the 11:24 mark of the second half.

After UMBC's 53-49 win in a Northeast Conference game against Wagner last night, Kennedy Okafor and Rich Giddens were in a role that has been surprisingly unfamiliar for them: heroes.The pair entered the season as the team's top returning players, Giddens coming off the most prolific scoring year of any Retrievers freshman with 434 points, Okafor with the tag of Big South Newcomer of the Year as a freshman.But after twin suspensions for team rule violations following the team's 0-4 start, the pair faded into the background as Brad Martin and Rod Harrison took over their starting positions.

DICKERSON - Organizers of the 2004 U.S. Whitewater Slalom National Championships didn't plan on one last-minute competitor with an agenda of his own. The watery remnants of Hurricane Ivan yesterday filled the quarter-mile cement racing chute that leads to the Potomac River with millions of gallons of runoff that turned the churning whitewater to a latte-brown shake. But despite conditions that drastically changed overnight from Saturday's test runs, the nation's top paddlers persevered by switching from finesse to power strokes.

A 29-year-old special education teacher was sentenced to 25 years yesterday for beating to death his 7-week-old daughter in their Reisterstown home. Orlandus E. Giddens was sentenced by Baltimore County Circuit Judge J. Norris Byrnes after Giddens' mother and aunt blamed the death on the baby's mother. "What was said in this courtroom is a lie," said Juanita Brooks, Giddens' aunt. "Orlandus is not the type of person to hurt anyone," added Cleo Giddens, his mother. But Assistant State's Attorney Jill Savage said Giddens' refusal to acknowledge guilt makes it more difficult for the victim's mother and maternal grandmother to deal with the death.

Melvin Whitaker came all the way back in one game last night. The 6-foot-10 center inspired Mount St. Mary's with his mere presence at first, then showed the skills that make him perhaps the best player in the Northeast Conference, climaxing his return with a driving layup with eight seconds left in overtime that subdued UMBC, 80-79, at RAC Arena. Sidelined since the 1999 NEC tournament first by a broken ankle, then academic deficiencies, Whitaker finished with 18 points and six rebounds in 26 minutes as the Mount (4-11, 4-3)

When paramedics arrived at a Reisterstown home in October, they found an infant whose death placed her among a record-setting group of victims in Baltimore County: babies and toddlers who police say were killed. Sinaii Giddens, age 7 weeks, was one of five children under age 4 who police say were killed last year, a record that goes back at least 10 years and is a sharp increase from the one or two such homicides reported each year since 1990. Police and child abuse experts say the number is an aberration and not a trend.
