If the announced 1,023 at the PNC Lacrosse Invitational on Saturday were not wet enough after the opener of the doubleheader between No. 4 St. Paul's and Haverford (Pa.), they surely were soaked by the second game of the event, featuring No. 2 McDonogh and Gonzaga (D.C.). Representing the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic association A Conference, McDonogh showed sure footing, even in the rain, against the three-time defending Washington Catholic Athletic Conference champions.

Bing Crosby played second base there in 1926 and did a little crooning on the side. Tom Foley was the national collegiate debate champion there in 1950. And John Stockton was the team's point guard during the early 1980s.But Crosby went on the road to Hollywood before getting his degree, Foley went off to Washington before doing any television commercials and Stockton found a lot more fame in Salt Lake City than he ever did in Spokane.None of them ever did for little Gonzaga University what John Rillie did last week by putting the Bulldogs -- or the 'Zags as the locals call them -- into this year's NCAA tournament, where they'll play Maryland on Thursday night in Stockton's adopted hometown.

Eleventh-ranked Gonzaga earned its third consecutive win Sunday night, routing visiting Coppin State, 86-51. The closest Coppin State (2-4) came was 3-2 on junior forward Arnold Fripp's jumper with 18:43 remaining in the half. Gonzaga (7-1) then went on a 17-4 tear and was never threatened. The Bulldogs, playing the Eagles for the first time, led at halftime 39-14 and finished the game outrebounding the Eagles 50-33. Fripp and sophomore guard Sterling Smith led Coppin State with 10 points each.

When his declaration of non-candidacy ended Wednesday, a reporter asked me, "Do you take him at his word?" What, he wondered, is the real reason Mayor Martin O'Malley won't run for governor of Maryland? I knew I had already succumbed to the same reporters' cynicism. Comes along with some other professional reflexes: Never expect an exciting political race. Politicians see drama as the handmaiden of defeat. Never let a politician explain his motives. Everyone knows a politician's motives.

LAHAINA,Hawaii -- Dressed in khakis and a cream Hawaiian button-down, Maryland coach Gary Williams at least looked relaxed yesterday. His demeanor following the Terrapins' 88-76 loss to No. 8-ranked Gonzaga indicated otherwise. Williams was clearly disgruntled with his team's 23 turnovers, which dropped the 23rd-ranked Terps (1-1) into the losers' bracket of the Maui Invitational. Maryland will play at 1:30 p.m. today against host school Chaminade (0-1), a Division II program in Honolulu that lost, 89-67, yesterday to Michigan State.

Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. Missing an entire season with an injury can be tough for a young player, especially when it's a career-threatening one. That was the case for 2015 Gonzaga College (D.C.) point guard Bryant Crawford , who missed his freshman year of high school ball as a result of a fractured tibia suffered during a scrimmage before the season began.

From the balcony of his home on 6th Street in the southwest area of Washington, Gonzaga senior Bakari McKenney says he can see the still-smoldering Pentagon. A fellow student's mother died Tuesday in the airliner that was hijacked by terrorists and crashed into the Pentagon, where McKenney's two aunts work and escaped unharmed. A Gonzaga teacher lost a loved one as a result of one of the two airplane crashes that day in New York. So, in yesterday's 28-0 victory over Loyola, McKenney tried to "run out all my anger and aggression."

PHOENIX -- When Connecticut's Kevin Freeman grabbed the bounding ball and flung it high toward the America West Arena rafters, frustration and the burdens of high expectations went with it. Connecticut can dance. And smile. And proudly wear the look of a team that just reached the other side.It is over. The underachieving label for Connecticut; the season, the dream for Gonzaga. Connecticut tripped Gonzaga, 67-62, yesterday in a doozy of a game in the West Regional final. And now Connecticut (32-2)

It's been tough sledding of late for the Patterson boys basketball team. Previously No. 1 in our poll, the Clippers (8-5) followed Friday's 64-55 loss to rival Dunbar with an 89-63 loss Saturday to St. Benedict's at the Dan Finn Classic in Jersey City and a 75-73 defeat on a buzzer-beater Monday at Gonzaga (D.C.). But those results never get in the way of enjoying an Aquille Carr highlight reel. Here are a couple videos from Monday's game from TheMarsReel.com (which includes the game-winner by Gonzaga's Kris Jenkins)
