LETTER TO THE AEGIS | December 27, 2011
Editor: On Friday, Nov. 18, the Patterson Mill Athletic Boosters hosted their annual Bull & Oyster Roast at the Jarrettsville Gardens. In addition to enjoying great food, music and fun, the PMAB succeeded in raising $6,000 to help support the Husky athletic programs at Patterson Mill. This event could not have been successful without the generous support of its volunteers, guests, contributors and annual sponsors. In today's reality of ever-tightening budgets, every dollar invested by supporters in the future our students is deeply appreciated.

With two freshmen and only one senior in the starting lineup, Patterson Mill's girls basketball season has been a work in progress. In the state Class 2A semifinals on Wednesday, the No. 10 Huskies showed just how far they'd come, running up a 19-point first-half lead and going on to a 62-44 victory over Walkersville, from Frederick County, at Towson University's SECU Arena to earn their first trip to the state title game. The past two years, the Huskies (21-4) have fallen to eventual state champion Calvert in the state semifinals.

It has never been Connecticut's style to bow its flag to opponents. It's not that the Huskies don't respect them. They do. It's more about their attitude about themselves. And the bigger the parade, the tighter that insular focus becomes. So don't expect a different approach tonight when the Huskies play Baylor (27-9) in the national semifinals at the Alamodome. "It doesn't matter what the score is," coach Geno Auriemma said. "My players are always under the impression that they are going to win. ... I've seen teams that accept losing, say it's not our day today, we'll get it tomorrow.

Patterson Mill junior Qalea Ismail says she gets her speed from her father and her basketball skills from her mother. That's a good combination for the daughter of former Ravens wide receiver Qadry Ismail and former Syracuse basketball star Holly Ismail. A 6-foot All-Metro second-team guard, Ismail (whose first name is pronounced kuh-lay-uh) scored her 1,000th career point last week in a 30-point performance in a 67-49 win over then-No. 11 Aberdeen. She averages 18.8 points, eight rebounds, 3.5 assists and 3.8 steals per game for the No. 11 Huskies, who reached the Class 2A state semifinals the last two seasons.

The Patterson Mill boys started their 2011 football campaign in dramatic fashion Friday night, as quarterback Ryan Jacobs tossed a game-winning touchdown pass to receiver Mike Reed in the waning seconds of the fourth quarter to seal a 21-14 victory over Chesapeake-Baltimore County for the host-team Huskies. The game's big play came with eight seconds left in regulation and the score tied 14-14, while the Huskies were perched on the Chesapeake-B.C. 24-yard line. Jacobs, who was filling in for Patterson Mill starter Luke DePasquale, fired a bullet to Reed in the end zone, putting the Huskies ahead.

COLLEGE PARK -- Patterson Mill won the first game of its Class 1A state semifinal with Catoctin, but the Huskies were their own worst enemy in the other three games, dropping a 13-25, 27-25, 26-24, 25-22 decision to the Cougars from Frederick County. The Huskies held a 24-22 lead in the second game and a 24-21 lead in the third game but could not put Catoctin away. Haley Jarcynski led Patterson Mill with 26 digs and seven kills. Elise Manning paced Catoctin with 18 kills. The Cougars will face Washington County's Smithsburg in the Class 1A state championship.

For a team in the midst of rebuilding, there are going to be good losses and bad losses. Loyola men's basketball coach Scott Hicks has experienced one of each the past three days. After playing Big East Conference member Rutgers tough before falling by 11 on Saturday night, the Greyhounds returned to Reitz Arena last night and lost, 74-63, to Northeastern, an America East team that entered the game 0-6. The Greyhounds (1-4) were undone by an aggressive Huskies defense that made 14 steals and forced 20 turnovers, and by poor shooting.

PHILADELPHIA -- When Connecticut and Penn State get together tonight at 9, the meeting might be dubbed, "the Main Show vs. the Sideshow." The 34-1 Huskies are the heir apparent to the national crown abdicated by defending champ Purdue. They're deep, they're talented, they're quick and they've been beating teams by an average of 31 points a game. Since November, the First Union Center has been waiting for them and their coach Geno Auriemma, a native of nearby Norristown. Penn State, on the other hand, is in its first Final Four.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. - Maryland returned to the Barclays Center a year older and maybe a year wiser, but the Terps seemed to follow the same script against No. 18 Connecticut on Friday night that they did in a three-point loss to No. 3 Kentucky in last season's opener. Seemingly as nervous as they were against the Wildcats, the Terps fell behind early and by a lot - 12 at halftime, 17 early in the second half - before staging a furious comeback that, again, fell short. Junior point guard Dez Wells missed two shots in the closing seconds and Maryland lost, 78-77, before a pro-Terps crowd of 12,867.

In anticipation for Friday's Maryland-Connecticut season opener at the Barclays Center, we traded emails with Dom Amore, who covers UConn men's basketball for the Hartford Courant. (For more of Dom's coverage, check out his blog over at the Courant's website .) TRACKING THE TERPS: This UConn team seems to be pretty balanced. Heading into the season what do you think will be the Huskies' greatest strength and biggest question mark? DOM AMORE: Obviously UConn's strength is the backcourt, not only in terms of quality but in terms of experience.

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. - Ultimately, it didn't matter how loudly the Connecticut fans booed Maryland and Randy Edsall, the coach they celebrated for a dozen seasons when he wore their colors. To the Terps (3-0) and their coach, it mattered only that they managed to defeat the Huskies (0-2), 32-21, and, after two losing seasons, take another step Saturday night toward becoming the sort of team Edsall envisioned when he first arrived in College Park in 2011. Edsall's return on a chilly night at Rentschler Field was overshadowed by what is becoming a familiar story: 500-plus total yards for Maryland engineered by dual-threat quarterback C.J. Brown, who passed for 277 yards and ran for 122. Maryland had to overcome three turnovers (two fumbles and an interception)

When Randy Edsall was coaching Connecticut, he had the opportunity to schedule two games with Maryland. The school wasn't far from where he grew up in Glen Rock. Pa., and he believed playing the Terps could help the Huskies recruit in the talent-rich Baltimore-Washington, D.C., region. Edsall had no idea that, years later, he would be leading Maryland rather than Connecticut when the games were played. On Saturday, the Terps and Huskies will play the second and final game of the series.

COLLEGE PARK - Randy Edsall waited nearly 20 years to become a head football coach, navigating multiple stops along a twisting path that led him to Connecticut 15 years ago at the age of 40. Edsall, now at Maryland, has a contemporary home that's decorated with evidence of a coach's nomadic lifestyle. There are helmets representing each of his head coaching or assistant jobs - Maryland, Connecticut, Georgia Tech, Boston College, Syracuse and the Jacksonville Jaguars. There are watercolor portraits - given to Edsall and his wife, Eileen, as gifts - of many of the family homes they have left behind.

NEW YORK -- During the first timeout he had called, a little more than 2 1/2 minutes into the second half yesterday at Madison Square Garden, Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun gave his top-ranked Huskies an earful. During the second, 24 seconds later, Calhoun said nothing.Guards Ricky Moore and Khalid El-Amin did most of the talking."Some of the guys were getting a little panicky," Moore said of the 12-point deficit Connecticut faced against ninth-ranked St. John's. "We knew we had a lot of time left and we've been in this situation before."

Only for reasons beyond his control - the rules of USA Hockey, and its tradition of staging national championships in different parts of the country - must Bud Buonato settle for coaching just one team this week. His Howard Huskies Under-16 boys won the Maryland championship this season. That got them a bid to Troy, Mich., to compete on ice there for a national title. But their head coach is not with them. This is because Buonato also happened to coach the Huskies Under-18 team to the state title for its age group.
