With the score tied and the final seconds evaporating, Varnez Nicholson never doubted himself or Oakland Mills. It would have been easy. The Scorpions boys basketball team had just seen a three-point lead slip away at home with 20 seconds left, and Nicholson, Oakland Mills' top shooter, was mired in a horrible shooting slump. But big players always take big shots, he told himself. And so, with time running out, he drove the lane into the teeth of the defense, tossed up a soft floater with 3.5 seconds left and found nothing but net. The basket send a packed house into a frenzy, and gave Oakland Mills a 52-50 win over Glenelg in the Class 1A South regional final, and a trip to the state tournament.

1. Aberdeen Coach: Amber Milnes Last season: 25-3, ranked No. 2 Postseason: Class 3A state champion Outlook: Versatile All-Metro sophomore Stephanie Jones leads the way as the two-time defending state champs bring back three starters - none of whom is a senior. After going a combined 52-4 the previous two years with their only losses to nationally ranked opponents, the Eagles should continue their reign if they can replace the senior leadership that graduated and get solid minutes from the bench.

FREDERICK -- Tom Dickman once thought he was going places. At least that's what he thought he would have to do if he wanted to coach college basketball, because virtually no opportunities existed here. That was almost 20 years ago. But as he became the winningest public high school basketball coach in Maryland, at Thomas Johnson High, Dickman had put those aspirations behind him. Then Hood College opened his eyes to possibilities he had long since dismissed. The Division III men's basketball program is in its first season at the formerly all-women's institution, and Dickman is its first coach.

A chance to play with the best. That's what fed 18-year-old Andres Conejo's dream of coming to America, playing high school basketball and earning a college athletic scholarship.Unlike his Costa Rican basketball buddies, Conejo is living his dream, thanks to a sports-minded Centennial High School family's unusual generosity.That generosity has meant battling with school and immigration officials, spending at least $15,000 for tuition and other expenses, and supporting him through emergency surgery and a rough transition to American schooling.

MOUTH OF WILSON, Va. - Carmelo Anthony is finally free. Free of the relentless calls from agents looking for his signature on a contract. Free of the movie theaters, video arcades and malls that diverted him from his homework. Free of the colleges that tried to dissuade him from committing to Syracuse. Here, at Oak Hill Academy, where cell phones barely work and the closest mall is 42 miles away in North Carolina, Anthony is free to do the two things that matter to him most: study and play basketball.

He was supposed to be in Florida right now, prepping with his teammates for a weekend basketball showcase. Instead, the team flew south Thursday afternoon without their 6-foot 5-inch forward, who was a "beast" on the court, his brother said. "He had french fry fingers," Walter Rogers, 19, said of his little brother, Marcus Harvell. His fingers were so long and skinny, he could grip a basketball just with his fingertips, he said. Basketball was his life. Harvell, 18, was a city basketball standout.

Domestic assault charges against high school basketball standout Aquille Carr will be dropped if he completes a 22-week program with the House of Ruth, his attorney said. Carr, a senior and one of the better known names in high school basketball for his electrifying play, appeared in court Wednesday morning to stand trial on charges that he struck the mother of his child during an argument last month. But prosecutors agreed to place the case on the inactive docket on the condition that he completes a program with the House of Ruth, according to his attorney, Ivan J. Bates.

It's easy to pick out the surprise in the girls basketball ranks. There's only one team in the Top 10 that you will find no mention of on last month's preview page: Mercy. Of course, I should have known better than to discount coach Mary Ella Marion and her Magic. One of the area's best coaches, she gets the most out of her girls in a program that, these days, rarely draws the best of the best area players. The No. 10 Magic is 10-2 with its success built a little differently from most other top teams.

All things considered, you would think the Arundel boys basketball team had no business entering the 2009 portion of the schedule with a 9-0 mark. The Wildcats, now 10-0 after their 89-50 at Anne Arundel County foe Chesapeake yesterday, lost 10 players from last season's 14-6 team and returned only one starter, senior forward Auraum Nuiriankh. Making the chore that much more difficult was the fact that a number of key players were on the school's football team that reached the state tournament, providing less practice time.

A man wanted in the fatal shooting in Canton of a popular basketball coach has surrendered to authorities and has been charged with murder, Baltimore police said yesterday. The Nov. 12 shooting of 33-year-old Brian O'Neil Jones of Millersville, a Northrop Grumman software engineer and father of three - apparently stemming from a random street robbery - had sparked concerns about safety in the Southeast Baltimore waterfront community. The suspect, Alvin Augustus Williams, 25, of the 6000 block of Marquette Road in Rosedale, Baltimore County, has been charged with first-degree murder, assault and gun offenses, police said.
