It took 51 years for Dan Murray to receive his golden jacket for winning the 1963 baseball championship with Calvert Hall, and he knows what he'll do with it now. "Probably encase it," Murray, 69, said with a chuckle. Murray, the starting pitcher in that championship game, said budget constraints or a simple oversight prevented the Cardinals receiving their jackets that season. It is a tradition at Calvert Hall for every member of a varsity championship team to receive a gold jacket.

The sixth-ranked Maryland women's basketball team completed a season-long three-game Atlantic Coast Conference homestand behind steady and frequent free-throw shooting and balanced scoring throughout its roster for a 92-81 victory over pesky Georgia Tech on Sunday in front of an announced 5,109 at Comcast Center. Senior forward Alyssa Thomas had 22 points on 7-for-14 shooting from the field and collected 14 rebounds to match a game high in pushing the Terps to their 14th consecutive win. Freshman point guard Lexie Brown added 15 points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals, and senior center Alicia DeVaughn chipped in 13 points, including 11-for-12 from the foul line.

Maryland center Shaquille Cleare is aware of the criticism leveled against him from fans and media during the first two months of his sophomore year -- maybe to the point where it affected his play. Cleare, who was used sparingly behind Alex Len as a freshman, had one of his more solid performances in Saturday's 77-61 victory over Georgia Tech in Maryland's Atlantic Coast Conference home opener at Comcast Center. His numbers weren't spectacular -- eight points, two rebounds and an assist in 19 minutes -- but his impact was apparent.

Kudos to the nonprofit Pride of Baltimore, Inc. for showing kids that learning can be fun, as was apparent in the published photographs ("Pride II takes to the bay as a floating classroom," April 11). But there was something blatantly missing - life jackets! Let's be sure to also use these learning excursions to teach the importance of water safety. Terry Callanan, Catonsville

What you need to understand about Augusta National Golf Course's decision to admit women for the first time is this: It was never about golf. For those who supported the 80-year-old home of the Masters, it was about the right of a private club to choose its members on its own terms. It was about, for example, Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates reportedly being denied consideration for a time (he is a member now) because he made it known that he wanted to be a member. For those who found the exclusion of women unsupportable and unseemly — the club finally admitted black men only in 1990 — it was about power and access.

Jim James can't seem to slow down. Besides fronting one of the most beloved rock bands in the country - the Louisville, Ky., quintet My Morning Jacket - James has just put the finishing touches on his first solo album, still untitled and tentatively due in February. Besides the solo work, the 34-year-old singer-songwriter has been remixing songs for up-and-coming artists such as Floating Action, a folk-hybrid act signed to James' own Removador label. It's also been more than a year since My Morning Jacket released its sixth album, "Circuital," and James is still touring heavily in support of it. Right now, he's in a familiar position - in the thick of a brutal summer schedule that began with large European festivals and has continued as a My Morning Jacket headlining tour in America.

Maryland fans did not need to step outside to feel the chill. For much of Sunday's game, the shooting percentages of Maryland and Georgia Tech hovered in the 20s -- lower than the temperature outside Comcast Center. But that was fine with the Terps, whose defense and foul shooting allowed them to overcome a sub-freezing shooting spell in a 61-50 victory over Georgia Tech -- Maryland's ninth victory in its last 10 games. Maryland won largely because of senior Sean Mosley, who scored 18 points -- including the last seven of the game -- and played airtight defense on leading Georgia Tech scorer Glen Rice Jr. Both teams' shooting percentages thawed as the game wore on, but a key for Maryland was that Rice -- son of the former NBA star -- was never allowed to become his hot-shooting self.

To give you a look at Maryland and this week's opponent, Georgia Tech, I traded five question-and-answers with Ken Sugiura, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Georgia Tech beat writer. Here are Ken's responses to my Georgia Tech-themed questions.   1) Does Paul Johnson ever refer back to his Navy days? Can you even find crabs in Atlanta? He mentions his teams at Navy occasionally, usually, not surprisingly, in response to questions about his background or experiences in coaching.

Paul Johnson had grown tired of the question. It was 2008, and the former Navy coach — entering his first season at Georgia Tech — was repeatedly asked by the media whether the option-based offense he ran so successfully at Navy would translate in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Johnson folded his arms and exhaled. "I get a kick out of, 'Will this work on this level?' he said. "I'm like, 'Are we playing the NFC East?' Last I looked, the last six years at Navy, we were playing Division I teams.
