These teams have met just once before, with Albany routing Loyola Maryland, 19-10, in the first round of the 2007 NCAA tournament. The Greyhounds are 9-0 at home this season and 4-3 at home in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Albany (11-5) went 4-5 through the nonconference portion of its schedule, but righted the ship by buzzing through the America East and claiming the league tournament for the second straight year. The Great Danes are 1-4 against teams that qualified for the NCAA tournament.

A YOUNG Parkton family is happily raising a Great Dane named Duke who is black and white, healthy and friendly.Duke hogs the television, sleeps with family members, is spoiled and thinks he is a person. But the family is convinced if their safety was challenged Duke would be their protector.Duke's owners, Cindy and Larry Price, and their two children, Larry Jr., 13, and Barbara, 4, don't know Duke's weight exactly, but they say Duke doesn't seem as large to them now as he did when he was a puppy three years ago when they purchased him.''At just a few weeks, Duke was so big as a puppy, he could already reach to kiss Barbara,'' says Cindy, who had insisted upon a dog and she wanted a big one.The couple, in their 30s, are deeply religious and dedicated to the Church of God.All four family members attend Sunday school and church on Sunday, go back for evening services and on Wednesday evening attend a family training class at church.

In a move that will surprise no one, Loyola Maryland defenseman Joe Fletcher has spent a considerable amount of time watching film of Albany attackman Lyle Thompson, and the Greyhounds senior knows that the tape doesn't lie. He also knows that the tape isn't entirely truthful. It can't capture the full scope of trying to shadow the Great Danes junior, who has already tied UMBC attackman Steve Marohl's single-season NCAA record of 114 points. “That's what makes him, him,” Fletcher said Wednesday afternoon.

I live in Clemens Crossing and am fortunate enough to be able to walk to my Giant. So off I went tonight to get a couple bags of groceries. On my way I passed a Mom and three kids at the tot lot. The little boy called to me from high on the swing. He had just called safely and successfully to a stranger! And then I noticed the two little girls were thrilled because they had just spotted a frog in the creek. On I went to then have a fun discussion with a man I had never met about his beautiful Great Dane.

The rats wore ruffles.A Great Dane wore a wig and granny glasses. And a 16-pound male cat wore a dress."I think he's embarrassed," said Betty Six of Eldersburg, whose 5-year-old daughter Tracey held the cat, Lucky, on a leash.When the tiger cat didn't fit into a size 4 girls' bathing suit, the family resorted to a pink dress and white bonnet for the costume category of the competition, Mrs. Six said. Lucky took second place. The cat also won first place in the largest cat category."He's a loveable cat when we're not doing this to him," Mrs. Six said.

No mammal on Earth comes in such a variety of sizes as man's best friend. Yet from a genetic standpoint, dogs are 99.8 percent identical to each other - about the same as humans. So why do they come in packages as small as a 3-pound Chihuahua and as large as a 150-pound Great Dane? Breeding techniques play a major role in determining why one dog can be 30 to 50 times larger than another. But scientists are beginning to better understand the role played by nature.

WOODIE, a 3-year-old black Great Dane, was badly emaciated, bitten and scratched, when he was found tied to a tree in Harford County woods last November. Thanks to months of care by volunteers of the Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League, Woodie has regained his health, weight and regal composure. He's about to move to his new permanent home. Last year, the rescue league cared for 133 unwanted Great Danes. Like Woodie, some had been abandoned or mistreated. Others had been given up by owners who were moving, getting divorced or simply had decided they did not want to keep a 140-pound dog with a voracious appetite.

Graham Savio picked a good time to record the best performance of his career, matching a personal best with 17 faceoff wins and setting a career high with 12 ground balls in top-ranked Loyola Maryland's 13-10 victory over No. 6 Johns Hopkins on Saturday. Charley Toomey couldn't say he saw that effort coming from Savio as the Greyhounds (15-1), the third seed in the NCAA tournament, prepare for a first-round meeting with Albany (11-5) on Saturday at 12 p.m. at Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore.

U.S. Army Capt. Benjamin Harrow, who lost both legs in a mine explosion in Afghanistan and spoke to the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team on Thursday night as part of the program's partnership with the Wounded Warrior Project, delivered what coach Dave Pietramala described as the perfect message for a team in a three-game losing streak before Friday's night's 13-8 victory over No. 19 Albany at Homewood Field. “One of our keys each week is we focus on what we can control,” Pietramala said.

Homewood Field in Baltimore is one of the more tradition-rich sites for men's lacrosse, and more than one opponent challenging Johns Hopkins has felt slightly intimidated by the venue, the nine NCAA championship banners and the blue- and white-clad crowd. But after scoring a 10-9 decision against the Blue Jays at Homewood on April 5, 2013, Albany - which will pay another visit on Friday at 7 p.m. - has no qualms about entering enemy territory. “We have a lot of guys who played last year and are playing again this weekend, knowing that they can step onto that field and can play well and can compete with them,” said Great Danes coach Scott Marr, a former attackman at Johns Hopkins and former offensive coordinator at Maryland.

EMMITTSBURG - Julian Norfleet sat in the second row of Knott Auditorium, behind many of his Mount St. Mary's teammates and coach Jamion Christian ready to find out where and who the Mountaineers would play in the NCAA tournament. The senior guard sat back in his seat, with his head tilted to the right side, as cool as the blue Gatorade he was sipping. Just minutes before CBS anchor Greg Gumbel announced the news, Norfleet drew his focus to the huge projection screen at the front of the auditorium.

Albany last played in the NCAA tournament in 2007. That drought may end this spring. The No. 19 Great Danes improved to 7-3 after edging No. 12 Johns Hopkins, 10-9, at Homewood Field in Baltimore Friday night. Already 1-0 in the America East, they warrant consideration as the favorite to win the conference tournament and earn the automatic qualifier to the NCAA tournament. But even if an upset were to occur, Albany may have moved closer to getting an at-large berth courtesy of wins against No. 9 Syracuse and the Blue Jays.

Nowhere is it written in the official collegiate lacrosse rules that UMBC and Albany are required to play a game decided by one goal. But they followed that script perfectly again yesterday when No. 17 UMBC shed its late-game troubles for the second straight time and fought off the 11th-ranked Great Danes, 10-9, in its America East lacrosse opener before 1,430 fans at sun-splashed UMBC Stadium. These two teams have met four times in the past three seasons, and every one has been decided by a single goal, with the final either 10-9 or 9-8. "We're just very equally matched, so it's a good rivalry," Retrievers coach Don Zimmerman said.

UMBC's opponent Wednesday night in one semifinal of the America East tournament is Albany, a foe that the Retrievers memorably edged, 17-16, in overtime on April 14. In that contest, UMBC overcame a 16-11 deficit with a five-goal run in a span of 2 minutes, 18 seconds in the fourth quarter and then got a goal from junior attackman Scott Jones with 2:17 left in overtime to cap the impressive rally. Coach Don Zimmerman is fully expecting the Great Danes to use that loss as inspiration for Wednesday night's game at UMBC Stadium in Catonsville.
