Being considered one of the 20 best high school basketball players in America can carry with it enormous pressures and responsibilities. But two-time All-Metro pick Melvin Scott of Southern of Baltimore has learned to play the game, on and off the court. "I understand that there's a certain image that you have to have, certain roles you have to play on the court, in the classroom, with your friends. You have to get used to it," said Scott, 18. "I have to be a role model, because I'm the guy my teammates have to see as a leader.

PORTLAND, Ore. - Scottie Pippen's demeanor seemed to change the moment he knew the Portland Trail Blazers were going to play the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA's Western Conference finals. Gone was the regular-season cool, and the quiet confidence he showed in the first two rounds against the Minnesota Timberwolves and Utah Jazz. Even some of his teammates noticed. Before Lakers coach Phil Jackson tried to cast Pippen in the uncomfortable role as Portland's only leader - a position Jackson knew Pippen has never liked playing from their years together in Chicago - Pippen's sense of purpose went beyond simply beating the Lakers for another chance to play in the NBA Finals.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- The Detroit Pistons' 87-81 victory last night over the Washington Bullets gave them a 3-0 mark since captain Isiah Thomas went on the injured list, but they're not the same team.The Pistons trailed the Bullets, who have lost three straight, for most of three quarters.Bernard King's two free throws gave the Bullets hope with 34 seconds left, trailing, 83-81. But the Bullets' Haywoode Workman took his fourth foul with 18 seconds on the clock.The off-the-ball foul angered Bullets coach Wes Unseld, who said afterward: "The call did not have anything to do with the play.

Old Mill lacrosse coach Bruce Sponsler has discovered how to keep opponents from double- and triple-teaming senior Allison Zaetz."It took me two games to get my act together," said Sponsler, whose team went 2-10 last season. "I hardly played freshman Michelle Salmon in the first two games against Severna Park and Chesapeake. She had never played the sport before and I just didn't realize how effective she was going to be."Sponsler started Salmon against North County and she got his attention with four goals.

An awful lot of Bulldog was in Southern of Baltimore Friday night, but in the end host Annapolis held off its determined visitors to emerge with a 92-87 overtime victory in boys basketball.The game wasso breathtaking that it left both coaches, John Brady of fourth-ranked Annapolis and Meredith Smith of The Sun's second-ranked Southern, speechless.Brady's 14-year record of never refusing to talk to reporters following a game, win or lose, ended, and it was ditto for Smith, who had nothing to say after the bitterly fought battle.

Who has been No. 4 Southern's toughest opponent this season?According to Southern coach Meredith Smith, it's not Dunbar, Annapolis, Cardinal Gibbons, Coolidge or Dunbar of Washington, the teams that beat the Bulldogs (14-4).Smith says his team's toughest opponent has been officials."We win on the floor, but we can't beat the whistle," Smith said after last Tuesday's 75-57 win over Lake Clifton. "The only team team that beat us [in which] the difference wasn't at the free-throw line was Dunbar.

St. Mary's girls coach Carmine Blades, who is retiring after this season, had hoped to leave after a championship season, but fate has not been kind.Blades said he was disappointed when he glanced at his bench in Thursday's 52-51 loss to Archbishop Spalding and saw his top two players -- Laura Coakley and Randall Goldsborough -- sitting on the bench in street clothes.Coakley, an All-Metro forward, has missed most of the season with torn cartilage in her right knee. After stumbling to a 3-5 record, the Saints adjusted to playing without Coakley and won 13 straight before Thursday.

The MSA A Conference can boast of having eight teams in The Evening Sun preseason Top 20. That even may be a few less than usual, but the top two, Dunbar and Southern, are exceptionally strong and Walbrook may not be far behind.Dunbar showed just how strong it is over the weekend, routing Coolidge of D.C. 75-58 Friday night and then Washington's top-ranked team, Dunbar of D.C., 84-68 Saturday night to win the James Kenner Tip-off Tournament. Southern lost to the same D.C. powers, but represented itself well, falling to Dunbar of D.C. in overtime and to Coolidge by only a basket, 64-62, in the consolation game.
