Instead, the rangy 6-foot-4 Lightning center caught fire offensively and led his team to a 49-42 victory that kept the No. 14 Lightning just one game behind idle Centennial in the chase for a Howard County championship. The Lightning (15-3 overall, 13-3 league) had lost to the Scorpions by a point earlier this season when Lightfoot missed a near-impossible shot at the buzzer.

His presence paid off with a 73-65 victory for the host Lightning, which had lost to Douglass in the playoffs four years ago and had never beaten a Prince George's team in the playoffs. "My mind was racing, saying: I have to rebound; I have to box out; I have to play defense; and I can't mess up or I'll be back on the bench.

And Gordon Lightfoot accepted the tributes graciously -- autographing the prized cardboard squares before handing them back to fans at a post-concert reception at Goucher College's Kraushaar Auditorium. This was an evening full of treats -- the show, the chance to meet the folk rocker, and a yummy dessert buffet featuring such goodies as bananas Foster, cream puffs and chocolate torte -- with the proceeds going to Sheppard Pratt Health System programs for children and adolescents with mental illness.
