Syracuse 's senior class is seeking to avoid becoming the first group since 1999 to graduate without capturing a national championship. That determination could be best embodied by senior midfielder JoJo Marasco. The Tewaaraton Award finalist has recorded four goals and six assists in three NCAA tournament games, and his 10 points leads the Orange in the postseason. Marasco, who pumped in a game-high five points on two goals and three assists in top-seeded Syracuse's 9-8 decision over fourth-seeded Denver in a NCAA tournament semifinal at Lincoln Financial Field here Saturday evening, said he is eager to help the program collect its NCAA-leading 11th national championship with a win against seventh-seeded Duke on Monday.

Pieces of column too short to use:Waydago, Junior! . . . Who isn't glad to see Cal Ripken Jr. on a tear? Every batting average point over .280 drives home the point that he's worth what he demands in a new contract with the Orioles. Still, a lot of people are amazed that he turned down $30 million over five years. A man called me recently to say it was obscene, and that such money should go to the poor. I told him that was a nice thought but the money probably would not go to the poor; it would go to either Eli Jacobs or Cal. And, given the choice, who would he rather see get it?

As notable as Towson's 9-5 victory over Massachusetts last Saturday was for junior attackman Devin Grimaldi's first career hat trick and first four-point display, the win also showcased the ability of JoJo Ostrander. The 6-foot, 175-pound sophomore defenseman limited Minutemen senior attackman Will Manny to just one goal on four shots and zero assists. Manny, a Tewaaraton Award finalist last season, may not be at full strength after sitting out five games because of a broken thumb, but Ostrander's performance earned the praise of Tigers coach Shawn Nadelen.

After a harrowing brush with thieves who took her dog and truck in West Baltimore, a woman was reunited with her pup Thursday morning in what shelter workers are calling "an impossible reunion." In town on errands, Amy Gaffney of Easton says she got lost Tuesday night in West Baltimore. The 46-year-old rolled down her window around Fulton Street to ask directions of some young men. "The next thing I know, his arm is in my car and he unlocks the door. I was so stunned, I didn't know what was going on."

Aquamarine will separate the world into two camps: Fourteen-year-old girls who will love it, and everyone else, all of whom will realize this is a movie only 14-year-old girls can love. The story of two best friends who help a mermaid find true love, Aquamarine exhibits a welcome empathy for adolescent girls and an understanding of how they interact. It also understands - in ways that its target audience may not - that there's a difference between what is important (friendship, self-confidence, altruism)

There's plenty of emotion up there on the screen in Moonlight Mile, writer-director Brad Silberling's vaguely autobiographical look at a young man who's come to live with the parents of his murdered fiancee. Unfortunately, the emotions are so relentless and one-note, the overall result is more stultifying than affecting. There's no question the material here is heartfelt; Silberling based the film on his life after the 1989 murder of his girlfriend, actress Rebecca Shaeffer. But Silberling (City of Angels)

There's a wonderfully funny and relentlessly cute 45-minute cartoon within The Powerpuff Girls Movie; unfortunately, it's padded out with almost as much filler. It may sound silly to speak of an 87-minute cartoon as tedious, but when even my 11-year-old daughter has trouble keeping her eyes on the screen, something is amiss. The Powerpuff Girls, big-eyed, super-powered bundles of joy that have become a major hit on TV's Cartoon Network, are one of the best things going in animation today.

Listen! The thunk, thunk, thunk of a fast-break dribble. High-pitched squeaks that sound like mice, but are just sneakers sliding across a hardwood floor. Cries of "Short! Short!" as a jump shot fizzles in midair. All that collective noise is music to some ears, particularly those attuned to Golden Oldies basketball. This is heaven on earth for creaky hoop dreamers: an age-35-and-over pickup game held every Sunday morning inside the Mount Hebron High School gymnasium in Ellicott City.

At Oakland Mills High School on the eve of the first, a musical called Seussical was played and rehearsed. And the audience, familiar with the Seussical plot - they all liked the musical, yes, they liked it a lot. The childhood rebel's favorite Cat in the Hat acts as the emcee through a flashy, energetic production of extraordinary "thinks." Familiar Seuss characters return to wreak havoc in lands like the Jungle of Nool and the planet of Who. Before long, the imaginative elephant, Horton, hears a Who and becomes friends with the Who Mayor's son, JoJo, who often gets into trouble for his extravagant daydreams.

Jojo Girard, half of the popular morning duo Jojo and Reagan on Mix 106.5 FM, has been let go, he said Thursday.

Girard posted on Facebook: "have joined the ranks of the unemployed at least I'm not alone. " He then told The Sun, "They opted not to pick up my contract. " He declined to elaborate until he could speak to his attorney. Calls to the station's head of programming Dave Labrozzi were not immediately returned.

The Orioles have decided to non-tender Jo-Jo Reyes, allowing him to become a free agent. Reyes was snagged off the waiver wire from the Toronto Blue Jays at midseason and posted a 6.16 ERA for the Orioles in nine games (five starts). With the acquisition of Dana Eveland last week, and the Orioles' interest in other starting pitchers in the market, Reyes, 27, became expendable. The Orioles also have non-tendered Luke Scott, though they hope to bring him back at a salary lesser than the $6.4 million he made in 2011.

The last word in the stage version of A Bronx Tale is "Dad." Chazz Palminteri has said that the one-actor show, running at the Hippodrome Theatre, is an homage to his late father, Lorenzo. But the character who comes most vividly to life is the charismatic gangster known in the play as Sonny LoSpecchio. At least that's how it initially seems. Sonny probably has five scenes for every one given to Palminteri's upstanding, bus-driver father. It's Sonny's trademark three-finger gestures the audience learns by heart; Sonny whom the teenage Cologio idolizes and emulates; Sonny who, despite his crimes, nearly takes on the stature of a tragic hero.

Seussical, presented last weekend at Wilde Lake High School, provided audiences the opportunity to break away from traditional high school musicals and watch a unique show based on the familiar Dr. Seuss stories. In the song "Oh, The Things You Can Think," everyone is invited by the Cat in the Hat (Carl Deffenbaugh) and JoJo (Olivia Nagel) to open their minds and imaginations to the world of Dr. Seuss. Carl is a superb Cat, playing the goofy and energetic narrator to a "T," while Olivia was an outstanding JoJo, whose vocal abilities shone in "It's Possible," among other songs.
