Setting the scene: The Ravens took the field around 1 p.m. after Tuesday's day off and didn't come off the field until just after 4 p.m. Mother Nature continued to smile on the team, providing another tolerable summer day. Good: After he led the offense down the field with screens to  Ray Rice  and  Justin Forsett,  Joe Flacco made his best throw of training camp during a two-minute drill. He dropped a perfect ball right over Torrey Smith's shoulder from around 30 yards out in the back right corner of the end zone.

From the playing of Jimi Hendrix's psychedelic version of the national anthem to the final play, yesterday's Class 4A state quarterfinal game between top-ranked Patterson and High Point was anything but ordinary.Playing more than half the game without their top running back, Ryan Lewis, the host Clippers were out-gained in total offense, 371 yards to 188. They had eight fewer first downs than High Point and ran 26 fewer plays.But Patterson also used the statue of liberty play twice for big gains, recovered a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown, blocked a punt and scored three touchdowns in a span of less than three minutes.

Towson capped an end-of-year surge in 2013 by winning the Colonial Athletic Association tournament and securing the automatic qualifier to the NCAA tournament. But that finish masked an inauspicious beginning. The Tigers opened the schedule on Feb. 8 against High Point, a team that was making its collegiate debut in lacrosse, and lost 9-7. The embarrassment of that defeat may be hard to shake, but coach Shawn Nadelen insisted that revenge is not a goal for Saturday's season opener against the Panthers at 11 a.m. at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson.

Cliff Cornish is no LeBron James and High Point, N.C., will certainly never be confused with South Beach. But Cornish, a former North County forward, does see one key similarity between his decision to transfer to Morgan State and the greatest basketball player in the world signing with Cleveland. “It feels pretty good [signing with Morgan], especially because of the LeBron comparisons - not skill wise, but in coming back home,” Cornish said Monday. “My friends and family are all happy to see me come close to home.” The 6-foot-9, 257-pound Cornish signed with the Bears last week . He'll be a redshirt sophomore this season.

Richmond coach Dan Chemotti said that at the beginning of the year, he and his team weren't even thinking about making the Atlantic Sun tournament. To him, it was more about the process than setting specific goals, and some practices early on indicated that the Spiders weren't anywhere close to where they wanted to be. Their one-goal loss in the program's opener at the hands of five-time national champion Virginia proved otherwise. Fast forward three months, and Richmond earned a trip to the NCAA tournament in its first year with an automatic berth from the newly formed A-Sun.

When Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown brought up a 2003 decision by the Court of Appeals to reprimand Douglas F. Gansler for his conduct as a prosecutor during Wednesday night's Democratic gubernatorial debate, Brown's chief rival in the campaign had a bold answer. Gansler, now attorney general, said he sees the rebuke as "a badge of honor" because he had spoken out against a Montgomery County judge who told an 11-year-old sexual assault victim that she shared the blame because "it takes two to tango.

This is a comment on a letter from Elliott Deutsch of Bel Air regarding the recent murders of city teens ( "No secret why murders are taking place," April 22). I completely agree with his comments about the loss of core values and other key factors. I think our country reached its high point during and immediately after World War II. Then our decline began and continues today. Our country could be great again if only we had leaders that had the courage to restore our old core values, but it seems such leaders are nowhere to be found.

UMBC's defense picked an inopportune time to play its worst game of the season. The Retrievers surrendered a season-worst 17 goals in a two-goal defeat at High Point on Saturday. It was the biggest offensive display for the Panthers (6-2) in their two-year history as a Division I program. UMBC coach Don Zimmerman said the defense didn't seem to have the ability to match the energy demonstrated by High Point. “We looked tired, lethargic, flat, whatever you want to call it,” he said Monday morning.
