NEW YORK -- He assumed a low crouch, head down, with his hands raised over each ear. Anthony Young was in perfect position to protect himself in case the sky fell, which, at this rate, wouldn't be such a long shot.And at this rate, it might be an improvement in Young's luck.The Mets right-hander has had to deal with bad defense, bad weather, bad timing and bad pitches. But none of them compares to his bad fortune. It has nipped him a little at a time, 26 times in a row, including a 2-0 defeat to the San Diego Padres yesterday that again suggested his run of poor luck is a matter of location.

It used to be when Annapolis and Arundel played boys basketball, it was a matter of not whether the Panthers would win, but by how much.Tonight when the No. 11 Wildcats (10-2, 5-0) take the court on their home floor, they rank as the unfamiliar favorite in the county 4A League "Game of the Week." For the first time in 20 years, the No. 13 Panthers (9-3, 6-1) are the underdog."We've paid our dues and don't have to come in the back door anymore," said Arundel coach Gerald Moore. "We want teams to come to us. We meet everybody at the front door now."

Broadneck's Mike Goch, a 6-foot-3 senior foreign exchange ** student from Germany, is not what you would call an impact player unless maybe you saw last night's 64-61 "mild upset" by the Bruins at Arundel.Sophomore sensation Jason Smith had a game-high 27 points, including two clutch free throws in the last nine seconds, but it was Goch who was the difference.The victory by the fifth-seeded Bruins (15-8) sends them to the Class 4A, Region IV semifinals at top-seeded Meade (18-4) tomorrow night.

After losing three straight heartbreaking games to Meade, Glen Burnie and Old Mill within the past two weeks, Broadneck coach Ken Kazmarek wanted his team to show in last night's Bay Division showdown against Arundel just what it was made of.The Bruins had led going into the fourth quarter of all three games, only to fall short during crunch time.But last night, instead of wilting offensively, the Bruins turned up the defensive pressure on upstart Arundel -- limiting it to two points in the last 5:48 of the game on their way to a 76-59 triumph.
