Anthony Lewis remembers the summer of 1992 well. The longtime Cecil Kirk coach guided an undersized but feisty starting lineup throughout the summer. It was a roster stocked with future college players, including Lake Clifton's 5-foot-9 point guard, Kevin Norris. "Kevin was a classic point guard who made so many people around him better," Lewis recalled. "He was relentless out there." Lewis immediately noticed Norris' defense, leadership and control, all of which led him to believe that his point guard might have a future in coaching.

The Cinderella team of this year's NCAA men's basketball tournament hails from Florida, but its coaches have Maryland roots. Andy Enfield set scoring records at Johns Hopkins before he became head coach at Florida Gulf Coast, the darling of the tournament. His assistant, Kevin "Stink" Norris, grew up in East Baltimore and starred at Lake Clifton. Together, they've put a local face on an upstart team that breaks new ground with every win. The Eagles are the first 15 t h seed in tourney history to make the Sweet 16, and an upset of No. 3 Florida on Friday night would carry Florida Gulf Coast further still.

MIAMI -- To understand how important Baltimore natives Kevin Norris and Johnny Hemsley are to the University of Miami basketball team, you only have to watch them play.You have to see Norris, all 5 feet, 9 inches of him, at the top of the key shaking down a defender with the crossover dribble that often precedes a behind-the-back, no-look pass.You have to see Hemsley, a slender but muscular 6-5, raining jumpers into the basket from 15 feet, or slashing through the lane for a layup.Norris, a senior point guard who attended Lake Clifton, and Hemsley, a sophomore swingman from Southern-Baltimore, bring the skills and attitudes of East Coast basketball to the previously docile Hurricanes.

As a fledgling coach fresh out of graduate school at Maryland, Andy Enfield worked with Keith Booth at Cole Field House on his 3-point shooting right before the former Terps star was drafted in the first round by the Chicago Bulls in 1997. As an assistant coach the past five years at Florida State, Enfield returned here for games with the Seminoles. It will be a little different Friday night when Enfield, who starred at Johns Hopkins from 1987 through 1991 and remains the school's all-time scoring leader, brings his own team — Florida Gulf Coast — to Comcast Center to play the Terps . But Enfield will not be the only member of Florida Gulf Coast's traveling party with local ties.

ATLANTA -- It was the long NCAA tournament tradition of sixth-seeded UCLA against the wide-eyed enthusiasm of 11th-seeded Miami last night in an emotional first-round NCAA tournament South Regional matchup at the Georgia Dome.And what a show these two teams put on in front of a roaring crowd before UCLA walked off the court with a 65-62 victory and a 5 p.m. second-round game tomorrow against third-seeded Michigan.The Hurricanes, making their first NCAA tournament appearance in 38 years, were led down the stretch by the Baltimore connection of Lake Clifton's Kevin Norris (14 points, three assists, four steals)

ATLANTA -- Kevin Norris seemed to enjoy every moment of a 15-minute news conference yesterday, laughing and joking with reporters as he talked about tonight's Miami clash with sixth-seeded UCLA (22-8) in the opening round of the NCAA tournament South Regional at the Georgia Dome.The former Lake Clifton star figured it was only right to have a little fun, because it took the Hurricanes 38 years to return to the tournament since their only other NCAA appearance in 1960."I mean, 40 years is a long time, and I think it's best just to round it off at 40 instead of saying 38," said Norris, drawing laughs.

Many of the players who walked onto the court for the inaugural David Brown Memorial All-Star Game last night at Baltimore City Community College were rivals during their high school days.But last night wasn't about rivalries or competition. It was about peace. An attempt to confront the random violence that has claimed many victims.One of those victims was Brown, a former standout at BCCC and Pfeiffer College in Misenheimer, N.C., who was killed in January. Brown was shot as he sat in a car at a traffic light on Russell Street en route to a basketball game at the USAir Arena.
