If they've said it once, coaches have said it 15 kajillion times: Rebounding is simply a question of positioning.Take Gilman's Jimmy Fields. He had 18 rebounds in a game last week, a terrific performance for a 15-year-old high school sophomore. Any frontcourt player would be proud.So, what's Fields' position? Very close to the floor. He's a 5-foot-6, 115-pound point guard. The rest of that triple double he had against Patterson, the 14 points and 11 assists, are understandable coming from an under-13 AAU All-American.

In one of the most exciting chapters in the history of the Coppin State-Morgan State basketball series, Coppin State turned the tables on a front-running Morgan team last night in the second half and ran away to a 82-70 victory before an overflow crowd of 3,222 at the Coppin Center. The duel last night went beyond the long neighborhood rivalry between these two schools. This emotional battle was all about a slightly fading Coppin team trying to regain its home-court pride -- damaged seriously this season by five losses -- against a badly battered Morgan squad that was looking for one big win to ease the pain from a 4-21 season.

In a breathtaking performance, Rasheed Sparks and Jimmy Fields sent Morgan State to its most productive game in almost a decade yesterday.Sparks and Fields were little short of sensational yesterday as they combined for 65 points, 13 rebounds, 12 assists, two blocks and two steals in a 106-82 rout of Florida A&M in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game at Gilman School.The 106 points were the most by Morgan since the 1991-92 season, when the Bears lost 140-110 to Loyola Marymount.Sparks, a slender 6-foot-3 senior slasher with a soft touch, put on a devastating long-range shooting exhibition that carried him to a career-high 39 points and a single-game school record of eight three-pointers.
