The rest of the country considered Houston's win over UTEP in the Conference USA tournament to be an upset. After all, UTEP had won 16 games in a row and was ranked 25th nationally. But Houston coach Tom Penders said the win was not an upset. I profiled Penders and Houston in today's paper. Here are some quotes not in the article. "I told the team going into the playoffs that we had the best team in the conference. We had beaten UTEP in the regular season," Penders said. Prior to the title game, the team had battled injuries.

Dave Dickerson has a dilemma this week going into Friday's opening-round NCAA tournament game between Maryland and Houston in Spokane, Wash. Will he root for the school where he played four years, earned his degree and won a national championship as an assistant coach? Or will the fourth-year Tulane coach pull for a fellow member of Conference USA? Don't ask. "It's going to be an interesting matchup for me. I'm right in the middle of this thing," said Dickerson, who played at Maryland for Lefty Driesell and Bob Wade from 1985 through 1989.

When a school hires a top assistant coach, they don't just hire an individual. They also hire a system -- a 3-4 in Maryland defensive coordinator Brian Stewart's case -- and a network of contacts. Former Houston defensive end Zeke Riser played for Stewart with the Cougars, and apparently liked him well enough to want to reunite with him in College Park. It's worth noting that the paperwork on the 6-4, 255-pound lineman from LaVernia, Texas, has not been completed, so his move to Maryland has not been finalized.

As a freshman in college, Jourdan Stickler played in a rural town for an infamously intense coach . When the former Annapolis star decided to leave Morehead State, he looked for the opposite. In Houston Baptist, Stickler - a former Baltimore Sun All-Metro first-team selection - found what he was looking for. “I was really impressed with the coaching staff,” said Stickler, who signed with the Huskies last month . “Particularly the fact that [the coaches] seemed laidback, in contrast to Morehead, where I had a coach that could be described as 'in your face.' … It's in the heart of Houston, so the city is all around it compared to Morehead, which was in a rural area.

HOUSTON -- As poorly as the first two games of their four-game series here at Minute Maid Park went, the Orioles can still salvage a split with a win this afternoon against the Astros. The Orioles will have to get through a familiar foe to get that win. Former Orioles right-hander Scott Feldman starts for the Astros this afternoon. The Orioles wanted to re-sign Feldman, who was acquired last July in a trade with the Chicago Cubs , but instead he signed a three-year, $30 million deal with the Astros in the offseason.

HOUSTON -- When Nelson Cruz hopped out of the batter's box and dropped to the ground, clutching his left hand in pain, Orioles manager Buck Showalter feared the worst. The Orioles have been wildly inconsistent over the first two months of the season, but Cruz has been the one constant. The slugging outfielder has carried the club's offense on his shoulders, so it was concerning when he left the game Sunday, shortly after being hit on his hand by a pitch from Astros right-hander Scott Feldman.

HOUSTON - You don't usually expect your cleanup hitter to drop a bunt in the ninth inning of a one-run game, but that's just what Adam Jones did with the Orioles down to their second-to-last out in an eventual 2-1 loss to the Houston Astros on Friday night at Minute Maid Park. The Orioles had struggled to get much going, managing just three singles and a walk after J.J. Hardy's second-inning single. Jones was trying to bunt for a hit, to give Chris Davis a chance to drive him in. He believed that by getting on base, Astros reliever Chad Qualls would hesitate to throw his slider in the dirt, thereby giving Davis a better chance at getting a pitch to hit. But Jones -- who had the Orioles' only extra-base hit on the night -- popped up the bunt attempt, making an easy out for catcher Jason Castro.

HOUSTON - Buck Showalter rarely admits to having any frustration inside his clubhouse, but after the Orioles' offense went absent for a second straight night a 2-1 loss to the Houston Astros on Friday night, Showalter couldn't deny that his team is pressing.   On back-to-back nights, the Orioles have wasted strong starting pitching performances, plating just one run in each contest, compounding a May skid that has put them below .500 for the first time since April 22 and tied a season high with four straight losses.

No one will argue that the Orioles' offense could use a bit of a boost. Whether two men who joined them Thursday in batting practice could provide it is a different conversation entirely. Former Orioles Harold Reynolds and Brady Anderson were in full uniform yesterday before the Orioles' 3-1 loss to Houston, with Reynolds taking his hacks in the batting cage and trying to regain his late-80s All-Star form. Reynolds, now an MLB Network analyst, will broadcast today's Civil Rights Game in Houston.

MILWAUKEE -- Orioles catcher Matt Wieters will do some light throwing Friday before the game against the Houston Astros, manager Buck Showalter said after the club's 8-3 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday. It will be the first time Wieters has thrown in three weeks. Showalter said he wasn't sure how long Wieters will throw Friday. Wieters has not played in a game since May 10, when the Orioles decided to shut him down completely to rest his strained right elbow. Before that, he had served as the club's designated hitter for four games because he only felt the pain when he threw.

A trip to Houston to face the Astros could be just the right thing to break Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez out of a funk that has resulted in a pair of sub-par starts. Jimenez goes into Thursday's start in Houston with 4-0 record and 2.32 ERA in eight career starts against the Astros. He is also 2-0 with a 2.37 ERA in five starts at Minute Maid Park. He didn't pitch against the Astros when they played in Baltimore earlier this season. His last start against Houston came on Sept.
