After standing for decades as a bleak symbol of urban decay, Baltimore's Lafayette Courts housing project came to a dramatic end yesterday, collapsing into rubble and dust in a matter of seconds.Shortly after noon, a series of slow, staccato explosions briefly shook the ground and flattened the desolate 11-story towers that had loomed over the eastern edge of downtown Baltimore. The spectacular display lasted just 20 seconds but fascinated tens of thousands.Crowds on the surrounding streets cheered, and many people wept, as the six high-rise buildings shuddered from the blast of 995 pounds of dynamite and crumbled.

In 2010, Lafayette was the feel-good story in the Patriot League, finishing third in the conference with an 8-6 record and securing its first berth in the league tournament in the school's history. However, those vibes ended quickly the following season as the Leopards dropped 11 of 13 contests and finished in last place in the conference. Coach Terry Mangan said not many players and coaches bring up the 2010 season as they are intent on turning the program around. “We still have guys on that team, guys that got some playing time on some of those good teams, and we've got to remind guys that we just didn't roll out of bed one morning and look around and say, 'Hey, we're pretty good.

Having gone three consecutive years without an appearance in the Patriot League tournament, Navy is close to ending that streak. A pair of wins against Lafayette (11-3 on March 7) and Boston University (13-7 on Saturday) means that the Midshipmen (4-5 overall and 3-3 in the conference) own head-to-head tiebreakers over the Leopards (1-7, 1-4) and Terriers (1-8, 1-4). Those tiebreakers could be significant for Navy, which currently sits in sixth place in the league. The top six teams qualify for the Patriot League tournament, which runs from April 22 to 27. “We're certainly in the driver's seat, if you will,” coach Rick Sowell said Tuesday morning.

Seven days after Navy's offense grabbed the headlines in an explosive drubbing of Patriot League rival Holy Cross, the defense took its turn in the spotlight. Sophomore goalkeeper John Connors finished with 13 saves and the unit allowed its fewest goals in almost two years in Friday night's 11-3 thumping of Lafayette at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis. The three goals were the fewest surrendered by the Midshipmen (3-2 overall and 2-1 in the conference) since an 8-2 victory over Johns Hopkins on April 21, 2012, and the Leopards were limited to just 24 shots, including three in the final quarter.

Almost 42 years ago, Baltimore celebrated when the first shovelful of dirt came out of the ground for the Lafayette Courts housing project, the beginning of construction for the "low-income apartments in the sky."Now, city officials have another day of festivities planned in honor of the Aisquith Street high-rises. On Saturday, after a party and parade, the city will blow them up."I'm going to be there on Saturday. It's part of my history that's being blown up," said Shirley Wise, a 58-year-old beautician who lived at Lafayette Courts for 25 years, beginning the year the project opened in 1955.

Navy's lacrosse season is still fairly young. Despite a 3-2 overall record and a 2-1 mark in the Patriot League, the team still has eight regular-season games to play and either hone its resume for the NCAA tournament or begin the offseason in May. But make no mistake that the Midshipmen have warmed up to their first wining record in the conference since March 30, 2012 when that squad was 3-2 in the Patriot League despite a 9-4 loss to Lehigh....
