Keisha Eaddy spent much of her childhood sitting in the stands, cheering on her brother, Davon Smith. Seven years younger than Smith, Eaddy watched hundreds of his basketball games, from recreation leagues through his varsity career at Oakland Mills. She was more than just another face in the crowd, however. Eaddy internalized every pass, screen, drive to the basket, box-out and half-court trap. It wasn't long before she was applying what she learned. When she was 9, in her first year of organized competition, Eaddy displayed skills beyond her years, as spectators quickly learned not to take their eyes off the diminutive playmaker.

A Severn teenager will be sentenced to 15 years in prison as a result of his plea yesterday in the fatal shooting a 15-year-old runaway girl for no apparent reason. Deante Littlejohn, 17, entered an Alford plea to second-degree murder before Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Philip T. Caroom, meaning that he did not admit guilt but conceded that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him of shooting Keisha Lane on Aug. 17, 2005. The girl had run away from foster care in Hagerstown to the home of a friend near Severn.

Seton Keough's Keisha Blackwell draws a lot of inspiration from the tattoo on her left shoulder.The tattoo is a basketball, an appropriate choice for a 1999 Street & Smith's preseason honorable mention All-American. But there is more to this tattoo.The basketball has a halo around it with name of her brother Kyle inscribed underneath. Kyle was killed in a freak accident five years ago.Keisha and her brothers were playing in their grandmother's backyard that day. She was 11. Twins Kyle and Keith were 10.

The River Hill Hawks are 25-0, ranked No. 1 and headed to the state semifinals. And there are two primary reasons for their success -- Brittany Gordon and Keisha Eaddy. Gordon, a 6-foot-4 senior center headed to Delaware on a basketball scholarship, is a vocal leader who dominates the post, runs the floor well, and stands out at rebounding and shot-blocking. Eaddy, a 5-6 junior point guard being scouted by Temple, is a leader by example who excels at passing and driving to the basket, using her vision and athleticism.

Three weeks into the girls basketball season and a few things are clear in Howard County. It's all about the guards this season; three-time defending champ River Hill with All-Metro senior guard Keisha Eaddy looks a notch above the rest; and any of a number of teams - including Mount Hebron, Atholton and Long Reach - could emerge to present a challenge. Which team moves to the front is the most interesting question. Mount Hebron (5-0) is off to a fast start with an impressive 55-32 win over Atholton last Wednesday serving as its high mark to date.

LAUREL, Del. - Before dawn Thursday, a dark and frightening vigil took place in Teresa DeShields' tidy apartment as her daughter's boyfriend fell apart. For seven hours, DeShields, daughter Keisha, 25, and a friend watched Allison Lamont Norman cry and writhe on the living room floor. Norman spoke of wanting to kill his mother and a man who he said had repeatedly molested him as a child. "He fell on the floor and said, 'Help me, help me,'" DeShields said yesterday. "He just lay there, moaning and groaning."
