Yes, Virginia, there is no clause banning early recruiting. But no one had to tell Virginia this -- Cavaliers men's lacrosse coach  Dom Starsia is well-aware. In fact, the Cavs have become the first team to accept two oral commitments from freshmen, landing Sam Offutt of Landon School in Bethesda, according to Inside Lacrosse. A two-way midfielder who can also take faceoffs, Offutt plays club for the 2016 Greene Turtle Lacrosse Club (D.C.). This fall, Greene Turtle D.C. competed in UPLax and the Greene Turtle Fall Invitational.

W ithout fear of argument, I think we can say there are better ways to start the season than how the Orioles have. Let's look at what's happened so far: •They lost 5-2 Sunday and were swept by the rebuilding Toronto Blue Jays in the first home series of the season. •Their All-Star second baseman - the guy with the tricky herniated disk in his back - has an abdominal strain that's expected to land him on the disabled list today. •Their new $12 million closer is getting hit like a piñata and blowing saves, and is now being kept out of pressure situations so he can work on his mechanics - and, presumably, his psyche, too. (Keeping a closer out of pressure situations - that's like keeping a member of the bomb squad out of pressure situations, isn't it?

Washington Nationals catcher Paul Lo Duca will be placed on the 15-day disabled list today with a broken right hand. Lo Duca broke the fourth metacarpal bone in his hand while batting in the seventh inning of a loss to the Houston Astros on Wednesday night. He came off the DL last Friday after he was hit by a pitch and bruised the same hand April 13. Nationals manager Manny Acta said Lo Duca could be out four to six weeks. Lo Duca said he might have come back from the earlier injury too quickly.

OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. - Their work here began nearly four years ago. When the 103rd U.S. Open begins this morning at Olympia Fields Country Club, the performance of a Baltimore-based golf course renovation company will be judged by some of the world's best players. John McDonald arrived yesterday with his son, John II, joining another son, Erik, who has been working as a volunteer member of course superintendent Dave Ward's bunker crew. If defending champion Tiger Woods is considered by most to be the best at what he does, the McDonalds are building a similar reputation.

It was a grand slam get-together at Morgan State University's Murphy Fine Arts Center, as the Babe Ruth Museum presented "A Legendary Evening -- Reunion of the 1966 World Champion Baltimore Orioles." Several hundred fans noshed on gourmet sandwiches, pizza, pasta and fancy chips and dips. But food wasn't the big attraction. It was the chance to meet and mingle with almost 20 former Orioles.

UMBC (1-8) at Florida State (6-2)Site: Leon County Civic Center, Tallahassee, Fla.Time: 7Outlook: The Retrievers have lost six in a row.

No. 7 MARYLAND (19-5) vs. CINCINNATI (17-8)Site: Alamodome, San AntonioTime: 1:30p.m.TV/Radio: Channels 2, 7/WBAL (1090 AM)Outlook: This is Maryland's first venture outside the Atlantic Coast Conference since December, and it could be a troublesome one. The Bearcats, though inconsistent this season, are just the kind of team that can give the seventh-ranked Terps problems. It is a team that could be just as athletic and a little more physically mature than Maryland. The Bearcats have beaten one ACC team this season -- Georgia Tech in the Rainbow Classic.

He was a starter for much of his first two years at UMBC, but junior forward Marc Lay has been designated as the Retrievers' sixth man this season. His job is to provide some offensive punch off the bench -- and the occasional miracle.Lay banked in a running three-pointer at the buzzer yesterday, averting overtime and giving UMBC a 56-53 victory over Loyola at Reitz Arena.It was Lay's fourth basket in four tries from beyond the arc, and it broke the sixth tie of the second half. The lead changed hands 11 times before UMBC had secured its first victory, and its 11th in 33 games against Loyola.
