For Southwestern, the difference between winning and losing might have had as much to do with Dunbar's failure to convert critical free throws and layups as it did with the host Sabers' penchant for regaining composure. One thing is certain: Last night's 40-36 non-divisional Baltimore City League victory by the fourth-ranked Sabers (8-2) had a lot to do with the abilities of 6-foot-5 Juawan Rhubottom and 6-8 Wayne Dorsey to get their hands on the ball. Rhubottom grabbed seven of his 15 rebounds at the offensive end, Dorsey added 14rebounds, and each scored 12 points.

The three-pointers were no problem for Arundel in the second half of last night's state girls basketball championship against Eleanor Roosevelt. The layups were another matter. The No. 3 Wildcats missed two layups in the final 40 seconds. Roosevelt got the rebounds and Ahja Hall put one back for the game-winner as the Raiders escaped a thriller, 52-50, to claim their fourth straight state Class 4A crown at UMBC's RAC Arena. The Wildcats, who won the most recent of their three state titles in 2004, missed out on the state tournament last season, but they felt about the same losing last night's final as they had about losing to Old Mill in last year's regional playoffs.

Junior swingman Justin Black and senior guard Anthony Hubbard did all they could to keep visiting Morgan State in the game, but the Bears had no answer for Illinois State forward Jackie Carmichael on Sunday. Carmichael, a 6-foot-9, 240-pound senior who posted double doubles against Mississippi and Stanford in last year's NIT, produced a career-high 30 points and eight rebounds, leading the Redbirds to an 87-68 victory. After trailing by as many as 22 points early in the second half, the Bears (3-4)

Woodlawn coach DeWayne Burroughs needed no more than a bit of simple math to explain his team's 63-40 loss to Oxon Hill in yesterday's state girls basketball semifinals. "We had 12 turnovers and 12 missed layups [in the first half]," said Burroughs. "That's 48 points. Even if we make half of them, that's 24 and instead of being down by five, we're up by 19." Given that opening, however, Oxon Hill seized its opportunity. The Clippers, who upset defending champion Suitland in their regional final, ran their five-point halftime lead to 13 in the first four minutes of the second half and rode the momentum to a victory in the Class 4A semifinals at UMBC.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- At a time in the season when basketball teams across the country are trying to peak for the postseason, Maryland instead looked at times yesterday like it had regressed. In the Terps' worst shooting performance of the season, there were missed layups and errant passes and not once did they take the lead in their second loss this season to No. 21 North Carolina.

North Carroll made a change in strategy for its second meeting with Liberty, something that brought the Panthers boys a much different result. Instead of relying heavily upon outside shots again, North Carroll repeatedly took the ball to the basket against the taller Lions. Danny Kahline scored 14 points while Steve Sheppard added 12 as part of a balanced attack last night that helped the Panthers hand visiting Liberty its first Carroll County loss, 55-48.

OXON HILL -- South River boys basketball coach Ken Dunn found it hard to criticize his team after its 81-70 loss last night to Potomac in the Class 3A, Region IV semifinals.Of course, he was a little upset with the numerous missed layups and the Seahawks' 14-for-23 performance from the foul line, but with a roster filled with underclassman, Dunn couldn't complain too much."We gave it a good effort," said Dunn, whose season ended last year against the same team in the same round. "I wouldn't trade our effort tonight for anything.

At Maryland, Frese is making all the right moves Brenda Frese was dying to scream, stomp or pound her fist on the floor. Anything to fire up her basketball team as third-ranked Maryland muddled through its second-round game against St. John's in the NCAA women's tournament Tuesday night. There were the Terps, forcing silly turnovers and allowing easy layups - in short, playing like their male counterparts this season. But Frese, the Maryland coach, didn't lose her cool. There were no tirades, no getting in the players' faces, no outward expressions of frustration.

College basketball Terps fall in OT at No. 23 Va. Tech Blacksburg, Va. -- It was supposed to be another one of Mike Jones' clutch three-pointers, but instead, Maryland's final play in overtime against Virginia Tech last night turned out to be another one of the Terps' missed layups -- and another squandered opportunity. Maryland made just one field goal in overtime, leading to a 67-64 loss to the 23rd-ranked Hokies in Cassell Coliseum -- a venue where Maryland's hopes of earning its first league road win were dashed, despite showing marked improvement on defense against one of the most experienced backcourt combinations in the country.

Dorenzo Hudson collected a loose ball under his basket and scored on a layup in the final seconds, lifting Virginia Tech over Boston College, 63-62, on Saturday. The ending was wild on the home floor of the Hokies (15-3, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference). The clock above the basket showed 9.2 seconds when Hudson scored, but the officials determined it had stopped before he scored and reset it to five seconds. Reggie Jackson took the inbounds pass for the Eagles (11-9, 2-4), but he never got the final shot off. Hudson led the Hokies with 18 points, and Malcolm Delaney (Towson Catholic)

WASHINGTON -- Belmont came within 11.9 seconds of not only joining the fraternity of NCAA tournament history-makers, but of surpassing them all. Duke, seeded second in the West Regional and ranked ninth in the nation, was saved from one of the biggest upsets in the history of the tournament last night by a steal by Gerald Henderson, who used a coast-to-coast drive for the go-ahead points, then by DeMarcus Nelson's interception of an errant inbounds pass....
