Less than 24 hours after winning the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament and securing its first NCAA tournament berth since 1994, the Loyola men's basketball team arrived at BWI-Marshall Airport this morning looking tired and happy following its 48-44 win over Fairfield on Monday night. Shane Walker, Loyola's senior big man who sank a free throw with less than five seconds to go to seal the win, walked off the plane with the gleaming gold MAAC 2012 championship trophy. "It's been hard to get it away from me," Walker said of the trophy.

Redshirt junior quarterback Moses Skillon made a brief appearance in Morgan State's 24-9 victory at Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference foe Florida A&M last Saturday, playing on one series in the third quarter and another in the fourth. But coach Lee Hull said Tuesday that redshirt senior Robert Council is still the starter for the Bears (3-3 overall and 2-1 in the league). “Robert's our quarterback,” Hull said during his weekly conference call organized by the MEAC. “We're going to ride with Robert for the whole season.

John Mackey was quite simply the greatest tight end in NFL history, and the Baltimore Colts were America's team before there was an America's Team. I hope Mackey and Johnny U. are having a great game of catch in Heaven. God bless him and his entire family. Don Doby

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors share their immediate reaction to Game 3 of the American League Division Series between the Orioles and the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park. Eduardo A. Encina, reporter: The Orioles made it exciting to the end. They're now among the final four teams in baseball. On to the AL Championship Series. They beat the Tigers' three-headed Cy Young winner monster. And in Game 3, the Tigers' murderer's row of Torii Hunter, Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and J.D. Martinez were 2-for-15.

Loyola Maryland coach Charley Toomey and Johns Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala said Saturday's game will not be the last between their programs even though the Blue Jays' schedule will change as it joins the Big Ten next season. There have already been phone conversations between the coaches, and they talked before Saturday's game, which No. 1 Loyola won, 13-10, over the No. 6 Blue Jays. The two teams met for the 52nd time Saturday at a sold-out Ridley Athletic Complex in a series that dates back to 1939.

LONDON -- The Saudi Arabian bomb has reminded the world of the politics of oil. But. looking ahead, the intrigue of the Middle East is as nothing compared with that to come in the Caucasus and Central Asia, where geo-strategic rivalries, ethnic feuding and elusive independence combine in a volatile mix.Straddling Europe, the Near East and Asia, the Caspian region is one of the largest underdeveloped sources of oil in the world. As the Persian Gulf oil is exploited to the point where its capacity and world demand intersect, this Central Asian oil will become a crucial alternative supply.

On Boise State's dramatic victory over Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl Unbelievable! I'm glad to see that I wasn't the only one who stayed up. What a great game. And the calls on fourth-and-18 and the two-point conversion -- those took a lot of guts. Just incredible to see. One of the best college football games I have ever watched. Shows that the BCS system is flawed. Games are won on the field and on any given day, anything can happen. This is one of the best college football games I've ever seen, right up there with last year's Rose Bowl.

Jonathan Ogden reflected the pain of the Ravens' struggling offense, limping and grimacing on nearly every play. Ogden received a cortisone shot an hour before the game for his sprained right ankle and played basically on one leg against veteran pass rusher Bruce Smith in the Ravens' 10-3 loss yesterday to the Washington Redskins. Though Ogden couldn't move enough to shield Smith on running plays, he held Smith without a sack for the second straight year. "It was very sore," Ogden said.

I was a New Orleans Host Committee volunteer for the festivities leading up to Sunday's Super Bowl , and I talked to lots of Ravens fans, since New Orleans was purple by more than 4-to-1. I must congratulate the Baltimore fans for being so nice; they were very much into the spirit of having fun and enjoying the experience. The 49er fans were more reserved and uptight, it seemed to me. And the connection between Baltimore and New Orleans (Ed Reed and Jacoby Jones are both from the New Orleans area)

In Johns Hopkins' 33-14 rout of Moravian on Sept. 20, senior quarterback Braden Anderson posted career highs in passing yards (218) and completion percentage (73.5). It took Anderson only one week to surpass those totals, throwing for 359 yards and connecting on 76.3 percent of his passes in Saturday's 42-26 victory over Centennial Conference foe Muhlenberg. Add a career-best four touchdowns, and it's easy to see why Blue Jays coach Jim Margraff called Anderson's performance the best of his career.

From a logistical standpoint, Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez hasn't had a particularly stable season. He has dealt with one stint on the disabled list, pitched out of the bullpen once and twice was demoted to the minor leagues as part of the club's continual roster tweaks. If Gonzalez keeps pitching like he did Wednesday in a 6-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds, though, he'll ultimately end up with just one destination next month: The postseason. That's his ultimate goal after an elevator of a season.

Ever notice that wan and languid look worn by Major League Baseball players and fans this year? That is not the lingering affects of steroid withdrawal. It is the unmistakable sign that baseball is dying. The lifeblood of wonderment and argument is passing from the game with every challenge and replay. Recently, Adam Jones closed on a ground ball single with the alacrity of a cheetah on the hunt. He picked up the ball and dead aimed it at home plate where the catcher snagged it. The glove was thrust at the runner who had dared to test the arm of the outfielder: Bang, bang, out!

After a fantastic first half of the season, the Washington Nationals' Rafael Soriano hasn't been the same in the second. He has allowed 10 runs over his past 112/3 innings since the All-Star break. He also has blown three saves, including one Sunday. He has been scored on in three of his past four outings. Soriano still has 29 saves, and his ERA is still only 2.59 ERA, but his five blown saves are tied for fourth most in the National League. His recent rough stretch and struggles with command have raised questions for manager Matt Williams.

I am a college baseball junkie, and ESPN has given me all the coverage I can handle and then some the last three weeks. The incredible run by the University Maryland, my alma mater, has been icing on the cake and a cherry on top of that. But, honestly, I could watch the Anteaters from the University of California - Irvine beat the Oklahoma State Cowboys any night of the week. And I didn't miss one Texas Tech game streamed or on-air. I'll see them both in the College World Series from Omaha next weekend.

MILWAUKEE - After Jonathan Schoop hit a fly ball to left field to end the top of the 10th inning of the Orioles' 7-6 victory Monday, he came back into the dugout and was angry. Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy, part amused and part flabbergasted by what the 22-year-old rookie was thinking, asked Schoop what was going on. “He goes, 'I just missed that last one.' ” Hardy said Schoop told him. “I'm like, 'What are you talking about? You had a great game. You just relax.' ” One of the reasons the Orioles like the young second baseman is his competitiveness.

No. 12 Salisbury's 7-4 upset of No. 8 Washington and Lee in the second round of the NCAA tournament last Saturday was immensely gratifying to the reigning national champion for two reasons. The Sea Gulls earned their 15th consecutive appearance in the quarterfinals since the tournament added a round prior to the quarterfinals for the 1998 tournament, and they made amends after dropping a 7-6 double-overtime decision to the Generals on Feb. 20. “It was nice to win the game because it obviously gets us to the quarterfinals,” coach Jim Berkman said Monday morning.

Koch finished with 10 saves - including four in the final 11 minutes - as the No. 10 Bruins held off the Seahawks, 11-6, to move on to the Class 4A-3A East Section I final at top-seeded Severna Park Monday at 7 p.m. The Falcons beat Arundel, 18-4, in the other semifinal.
