Dunbar plays an important basketball game at Morgan State's Hill Field House tonight against rival Lake Clifton. That's hardly unusual for the Poets, who won the national championship last season.What is different is the role Dunbar will assume for its regular-season finale: underdog.The No. 2 Poets (15-4, 10-1) will attempt to regain the No. 1 spot from the Lakers (15-3, 10-0) in their second meeting of the season. On Jan. 22 at Morgan, Lake Clifton defeated Dunbar, 73-65, ending an eight-game losing streak to the Poets that dated to the 1987-88 season.

Three days before Maryland opens basketball practice, coach Gary Williams was in Baltimore doing what comes naturally: selling basketball in general and Maryland in particular.Now, though, the hard sell has become the soft sell."When I got to Maryland, I was told we couldn't recruit here because of things that happened in the past," Williams said yesterday, addressing the CEO Club of Baltimore at the USF&G building. "But I was too stubborn or dumb to listen."The basketball oasis once closed to Maryland has been reopened.

COLLEGE PARK -- For the first time in more than a decade, the Maryland basketball team didn't have a player to honor during its Senior Day festivities at Cole Field House.Instead, two of the Atlantic Coast Conference's burgeoning stars turned yesterday's game against Virginia into Freshman Day. Score this one for the young Terrapins, a little more than a month after being outplayed by their counterparts in Charlottesville.In what turned out to be the most decisive 10 minutes in Maryland's 70-68 victory, Joe Smith and Keith Booth led the Terps on a 22-9 run to start the second half.

University of Maryland men's basketball coach Gary Williams put the finishing touches on his new-look coaching staff yesterday by adding one of the best players in Terrapins history. Keith Booth, a former star at Dunbar who went on to become one of Williams' signature recruits in College Park, was announced yesterday as the Terps' new assistant coach, replacing former teammate Matt Kovarik. After three years on Williams' bench, Kovarik is likely to return to law school. Mike Lonergan, who guided Division III Catholic University to a 251-88 record over 12 seasons and a national championship in 2001, also joined the staff in April, replacing Jimmy Patsos, whose 13-year tenure as an assistant ended when he became head coach at Loyola.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Keith Booth said he had no aspirations about winning the Most Valuable Player award at the 16th annual McDonald's All American Basketball Game yesterday. And he didn't win it.But Booth, a star from Baltimore's Dunbar High who recently committed orally to the University of Maryland, did all the dirty work -- 15 points and seven rebounds -- that was required for the East to record a 105-95 victory over the West."In all-star games, different guys want to come out and take their shots," said Booth, who was 5-for-12 from the field and 5-for-10 from the free-throw line.
