LOS ANGELES -- Great player? Definitely. Great team? Not so sure.In another era, winning back-to-back NBA titles would be enough to assure a place among the great champions of all time. But in the 1990s, winning consecutive championships is merely a prerequisite to get you on the list of teams to be considered.By disposing of the Portland Trail Blazers in six games in the just-completed NBA Finals, the Chicago Bulls became the third straight team to win consecutive titles, following the lead of the Lakers (1987 and '88)

In recent years, British cooking has gotten experimental and interesting, escaping from its role as the punch line of every culinary joke. Still, the chef who embraces traditional British foods outside of the United Kingdom is taking a risk. The Brits definitely know how to do some things right in the kitchen, though, and Baltimore is fortunate that Neill Howell - a native of Britain and the former Bond Street Social executive chef - is sharing a few of those successes with the city.

St. Paul's star attackman Mikey Wynne painfully watched visiting McDonogh score three quick goals while he was serving a one-minute penalty for a high check on Friday. It gave the No. 2 Eagles a five-goal advantage and seemingly control of the game midway through the third quarter. Fortunately for Wynne, there was still time left to make amends. And did he ever. The All-Metro senior scored three of his game-high five goals and added an assist when the No. 5 Crusaders scored the game's final eight goals to come away with an improbable, 12-9 win over McDonogh in Brooklandville.

In their roles as co-hosts on the new 105.7 FM The Fan, Scott Garceau and Anita Marks will both be on during Ravens players shows. Speaking of the Garceau-Marks pairing, CBS Radio Baltimore executive Robert Philips said: "I think Scott has been around and they'll make a great team. It's not so much Anita losing [her own show] - she's gaining a partner. I think they offer great balance." (For more, go to baltimoresun.com/mediumwell)

Whether it was watching a clip of the movie Seabiscuit before the game, a halftime talk about heart or collectively getting removable tattoos, the No. 11 McDonogh girls basketball team was looking for any kind of added inspiration to help find a way past No. 3 Institute of Notre Dame last night. The Eagles found some at just the right time. Freshman point guard Brittany Mallory took over a tight Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference quarterfinal in the closing three minutes with a three-pointer, a runner from the left baseline and a pair of clinching free throws that helped send the Eagles past the visiting Indians, 45-41, and onto tomorrow's conference semifinals.

Quote: "There's not a weak link on this team, as far as offense or defense. It's just a great team to play on, and we're having the time of lives." - Chicago's Herbert Perry, about the majors' winningest team thus far this season. It's a fact: Kansas City got a hit in each of the first 12 innings - a first since 1977 - of its 13-inning loss Wednesday. Who's hot: K.C.'s Rey Sanchez and Oakland's Jeremy Giambi - four hits each Wednesday. Who's not: Toronto's Paul Quantrill allowed seven runs and seven hits in two innings Wednesday.

Combining a textbook inside-outside game on offense with a determined front on defense, the Mount Hebron girls basketball team had everything working last night at Atholton. The No. 11 Vikings got 16 points from junior Deanna Dydynski, a dominating 15-point performance inside from senior Jasmine Jarrett and, most importantly, they continually made the No. 6 Raiders work for every point they could muster in coming away with a surprisingly easy 58-38 win in Howard County play. The Vikings are 12-1 overall and 9-1 in Howard, while the Raiders are 11-2 and 10-1 in the league.

Prescott Burgess, a sixth-round pick, was the second linebacker taken by the Ravens in the NFL draft in April, selected just two rounds after the organization chose Antwan Barnes out of Florida International. A two-year starter at outside linebacker for Michigan, Burgess impressed observers yesterday when he tackled running back Willis McGahee, forcing a fumble. What did you see on that hit of McGahee? The ball carrier was right there. I just had to make a name for myself and show them that I'm going to make my presence [known]

Sean McDonnell must be quite the film aficionado. How else do you explain the New Hampshire coach's seemingly perfect description of Towson junior running back Terrance West's mesmerizing performance in the No. 3 Tigers' 44-28 victory over the No. 19 Wildcats at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson Saturday? For the third time in three meetings against New Hampshire, West gashed his Colonial Athletic Association rivals for more than 200 rushing yards and multiple touchdowns. During his postgame press conference, McDonnell offered this assessment of West's production.

Despite his status as a special assistant to the division-rival Toronto Blue Jays and only a short - yet decorated - tenure in Baltimore, Roberto Alomar called his induction into the Orioles Hall of Fame on Friday “a dream come true.” “I feel honored. It's an honor as a ballplayer,” Alomar said. “I never expected this phone call from the Orioles. I only played here for three years and it caught me by surprise. But to be selected by such a great, elite group of players, it is an honor.

Maryland's 2013 season could be compared to an exhilarating amusement-park ride that kept passengers highly entertained through the first half before sputtering out and leaving riders wanting more. After back-to-back appearances in the national title game, the Terps fell well short of that goal this spring, falling to Cornell, 16-8, in the first round of the NCAA tournament Sunday. With the loss, Maryland extended its national crown drought to 38 years. As frustrating as that is, however, coach John Tillman said the program will not lower the bar. “Our expectations will always be the same,” he said.

The Orioles bounced back from a 6-0 deficit to win, 9-6, in 10 innings Friday night against the Minnesota Twins. Among the highlights was Jim Johnson breaking Randy Myers' club record with his 35th consecutive regular-season save (dating back to last year). Here's some of the postgame chatter from the clubhouse: Johnson on his record-setting 35 th consecutive save: “I wasn't thinking about it obviously. I was just thinking about watching us chip away. I thought it was a great team win. Everybody kind of chipped in. … Good effort out of the bullpen, guys had great at-bats and we ended up pulling it out.” Johnson on whether breaking Myers consecutive saves' record means something special: “It's not really anything I'm focused on. It's great, but our ultimate goal is our team record at the end of the year and going further than that.

There is an old soccer adage that a wet field is often the great equalizer, favoring teams that play a more grind-it-out style over those that are more offensively gifted. On a night when the pitch at Ludwig Field turned into a 110-yard Slip 'N Slide, high-scoring, top-ranked Maryland was slowed by a steady first-half downpour and No. 2 North Carolina, the nation's top defensive team. But when the Terps secured a 1-0 victory in overtime, it turned the announced crowd of 7,340 from soggy to celebratory.

I am a Red Sox fan (I now live in New England), by way of having been a Braves fan (they were the team of the deep South in the '70s) , by way of having been a Brooklyn Dodgers fan as a very young child (their enemy was the Yankees, and they hired Jackie Robinson). I am a devoted Sox fan, and watch almost every Red Sox game on TV, unless I am at Fenway. It always seems weird to me to see a ballpark half full when I am used to Fenway full for every game. OK, there were lean times for theO'sin the past, but how can your city not come out to support the team this year?

Carver coach Ron Frierson called Douglass' Antione Smithson "an excellent player" after watching him almost single-handedly beat his visiting Bears, 13-6, yesterday. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound senior quarterback/defensive back had a game-high 85 rushing yards. He also passed for 185 yards and tossed a 31-yard touchdown to Sheldon Waller in the second quarter. Smithson booted an extra point, and, defensively, ripped the ball from the hands of a Carver running back before going 85 yards, untouched, into the end zone to give his team a 13-0 lead in the fourth quarter.

Tagged by many as the No. 1 team in the country at the start of the season, the Calvert Hall boys lacrosse team has already had to deal with its share of pressure and adversity. Coming off an upset loss at McDonogh on Friday and then watching their lead dwindle to one goal in the third quarter of Tuesday's showdown against newly appointed No. 1 Gilman, the No. 3 Cardinals were in a position to either slip a bit more or rise to the occasion. They did the latter, responding to their latest test was a six-goal scoring binge that sent them to a satisfying 11-8 home win over the Greyhounds.

Carrying a .667 batting average into this week, it's clear senior shortstop Melanie Slowinski has had her share of big games for No. 1 Glen Burnie. When asked to pick the best of her four years playing for the Gophers, she took time to consider before coming up with a two-homer game in a win against Arundel during her sophomore year. Another question that had her stumped was what she would be doing if not playing softball. She started playing catch with her father every night in the backyard when she was little, started T-ball when she was 5 and then played travel softball when she was 8. "Sometimes I'll get sick of it and just don't feel like doing it," Slowinski said.
