Johns Hopkins-bound Shack Stanwick had five points (two goals, three assists) and No. 1 Boys' Latin completed a perfect regular season in boys lacrosse Tuesday with a 13-8 win over No. 5 St.Paul's. The Lakers finish the regular season with an overall record of 18-0 and a 9-0 mark in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association AConference. The last time Boys' Latin had a perfect season was 2006; there have been only five undefeated teams in the MIAA since plastic sticks were introduced into the sport.

Since Steve Blake went to the Los Angeles Lakers three years ago, the former Maryland point guard had rarely been much of a factor - first playing behind Derek Fisher, then Ramon Sessions and finally this season behind Steve Nash. Many Lakers fans felt as if the team had spent way too much when it signed Blake to a four-year, $16 million contract. There were times when Blake's looked like he was playing in the Bermuda Triangle rather than the Triangle offense under Phil Jackson and later Mike Brown.

The No. 1 Boys' Latin lacrosse team has a skillful attack that puts overwhelming pressure on opponents. So getting the attack the ball is an obvious priority for the nation's No. 1 team. And that's where junior midfielder Hunter Moreland came into play in Tuesday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference opener against No. 5 McDonogh. Moreland won 14 of the Lakers' 16 draws, which helped turn a sluggish first half into a sound 15-10 win over the visiting Eagles.

The Randallstown boys basketball team had the ultimate fourth-quarter test of character. The Rams saw their 15-point lead dwindle to nothing with five minutes to play in Tuesday's Class 2A North region semifinal. The opponent was No. 13 Lake Clifton, defending state champions and the same Lakers who rallied past them earlier in the season. Instead of folding, Randallstown stayed poised. The Rams executed on offense and clamped down on defense, scoring the next eight points to restore order and claim a hard-fought 59-55 win on their home court.

Don't write off Lakers Shandel Richardson Sun Sentinel It's still kind of hard to write off the Lakers. You have to think a team with Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash and Dwight Howard will at some point get things together. The Lakers will be the surprise team of the second half of the season because they simply have too much talent to miss the playoffs. We've seen it in spurts, now expect them to sustain it for long stretches. The key for them, just like every other team, is staying healthy.

How about a new coach? Ira Winderman Sun Sentinel The best Pau Gasol trade? Mike D'Antoni for any coach with enough common sense to find a way to make it work. Once again, D'Antoni being so wedded to a system has compromised his ability to maximize his roster. With a $19 million price tag, knee tendinitis and declining statistics, Gasol will not fetch anything close to reasonable value on the trade market. This sets up as a worse situation than when the Lakers stole Gasol from the Grizzlies in the first place.

The Lake Clifton boys basketball team is mostly quick and small, and the Lakers are well-aware there will be games when they have to scrap for everything to get a win. Against bigger and stronger Randallstown at the International Association of Approved Basketball Officials Board 290 Memorial Mixer at Northwestern on Thursday, the Lakers faced one of those games. Lake Clifton found a way to beat the No.12 Rams' press just enough times, hit just enough shots, grab just enough rebounds and tirelessly defend to earn a 60-53 win. Senior guard Daquan Ross had a game-high 18 points and junior forward Tavon Coleman added 12 for the Lakers.
