Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas stored unloaded firearms in a locked container in his locker, according to the team, and the NBA is looking into the situation. The Wizards issued a statement saying there was no ammunition in the container. Arenas and the team have notified authorities and the league. Arenas told the Washington Times he took his guns to the arena after his daughter was born this month. About a week later, he said he handed them over to security to give to police.

Saturday's 31-20 victory over visiting North Carolina Central lifted Towson to a 2-2 record, marking their first time at .500 since the beginning of the season. The win also injected some much-needed confidence into the team, coach Rob Ambrose said Monday during his weekly conference call arranged by the Colonial Athletic Association. “These are college students with college-student problems and injuries,” he said. “Everybody's got problems. So it's about managing them as best we can and moving forward.

Maybe this is what happens when you've won 16 straight games in your own house and then another  team gums things up by having the nerve to knock you off, as the Pittsburgh Steelers did Sunday with their surprising 23-20 win over the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium. Maybe it throws off your normal routine or disrupts your rhythm or reorders the team karma, a word that probably makes John Harbaugh gag. Whatever the reason, the Ravens post-game locker room had a weird vibe to it last night.

Former Maryland basketball star Walt Williams, who currently serves as an analyst on the team's radio broadcast at home games, said Wednesday that he heard sophomore forward Charles Mitchell being "disruptive" during a timeout in Tuesday's game against Virginia Tech. The incident led to Mitchell being sent to the locker room by Terps coach Mark Turgeon . Williams said he didn't hear or see what preceeded the timeout. “I was listening to what Mark was telling them at the under 4-minute timeout, and I could hear Charles talking too. You could hear both of them.

The Ravens' laundry list of free agents is highlighted by running back Ray Rice, left guard Ben Grubbs and linebacker Jarret Johnson, but that trio did not appear Monday when media was allowed in the locker room. However, outside linebacker Terrell Suggs said keeping Rice, a two-time Pro Bowl player, is a “no-brainer.” “We're really good about that, guys who are truly Ravens, keeping them Ravens,” Suggs said. “There's no one better in the game to do it than [Ravens general manager]

A group of reporters was gathered around Ravens center Matt Birk this week, asking difficult questions about the team's pitiful pass protection, when someone across the locker room turned up his stereo as loud as it would go and began to sing. You didn't even need to turn around to identify the troubadour. Anyone who has spent any significant amount of time in the Ravens' locker room over the last five years knew immediately that it was Terrell Suggs. When things get a little too tense during the season, especially after a difficult loss, there are a few things you can always count on at the team's complex in Owings Mills.

Baltimore County police evacuated Franklin Middle School in Reisterstown yesterday afternoon after five vials of flammable substances were found in the locker of a 12-year-old pupil. Police said the seventh-grader told administrators that he was trying to sell the substances to other pupils as bomb-making ingredients. Sgt. Dean Brubaker of the arson and hazardous devices unit said a preliminary investigation showed that the materials were household chemicals that, if combined with "certain incendiary devices," could become explosive.

I hate lugging my gym bag back and forth to the gym and having to plan workout days in advance. Can I pay my health club extra money to get a permanent locker? At most gyms, this is simply a space issue. Membership usually exceeds the number of available lockers, but some larger gyms do offer locker rental. At the Merritt Downtown Athletic Club, for instance, $27.50-$44 will buy you your own locker for one year (but the locker space is not in the main locker room). If your health club has a strict policy against permanent lockers (some will even use cutters to remove your lock if left overnight)

His teammates were all around him, saying their goodbyes, exchanging phone numbers and emptying the contents of their lockers into industrial-size garbage bags. But Ravens running back Ray Rice couldn't get himself to do any of it. "It's tough when you're home this early," Rice said. "It just feels like it's too early to be packing up. " The Ravens spent Day 1 of their offseason attending one final team meeting with coach John Harbaugh at the Under Armour Performance Center and packing up their belongings.

I love it when some player reportedly "calls me" out. Apparently, that's what former Ravens safety Ed Reed did last week. He called me out during a conference call with the Baltimore media last week. I actually listened to the recording before it got on local radio and heard Reed laughing before he made any comments. In all honesty, I thought the comments were made more out of respect than ridicule. Reed and I had a good relationship when he was younger with the Ravens, and it did get a little tense the last few years he was in Baltimore.

It's no surprise that Terps football coach Randy Edsall sleeps in his office during training camp. Actually, he sleeps in a private area of the locker room. He's been a coach for more than 30 years and this is standard training camp practice. “It's all I know,” he said. Edsall lives about a 30-minute drive from campus, so he said bunking in College Park is a time-saver and helps build morale. We wrote previously on how a couple of the assistant coaches were sleeping in the dorms.

In 1975, Sun reporter Frederic Kelly sat down with Art Donovan, turned on a tape recorder and let the Colts' first Hall of Famer spin tales about his playing days. Here are some excerpts: "We used to throw cold buckets of water on each other, and one day (coach) Weeb Ewbank sent word out that the next guy he caught throwing water he was going to fine $1,000. So Gino Marchetti says to Carl Taseff, 'Listen, Gaucho, we'll throw one more bucket of water and we'll throw it on 'The Horse' (Alan Ameche)

Free-spirited pitcher Tommy Hunter is hoping that he can re-establish himself as a starting pitcher at some point, but he's not going to be picky about the role he ultimately plays on this year's team. "I'd definitely like to start," he said, “but if that doesn't happen, I'll take the ball whenever I can get it. It's about getting outs. I want to win. I want to win the World Series.” Hunter is one of the few Orioles players who has actually played in a World Series - with the Rangers - and he believes that the O's have what it takes to take the next step in that direction after last year's surprise trip to the playoffs.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Kevin Gausman's spring training locker sits along a row next to Orioles veteran pitchers Darren O'Day, Jim Johnson and Jason Hammel. That placement is strategic - manager Buck Showalter gives a sly grin when asked about it - just like 19-year-old left-handed pitching prospect Eduardo Rodriguez's locker being next to pitchers Miguel Gonzalez and Pedro Strop. The plan is for first-time big league campers like Gausman and Rodriguez, two of the Orioles top three pitching prospects, to learn what life is like in the big leagues by example.

Top administrators at Loyola Blakefield, the Jesuit boys school in Towson, are investigating anti-Semitic graffiti scrawled on the locker of a Jewish ninth-grader. The message was discovered late Wednesday and the school maintenance department removed it early Thursday, said Rob Robinson, a spokesman for Loyola Blakefield. Robinson would not describe the graffiti other than to say it included the word "Jew. " "It was very clear," Robinson said. He said the school is interviewing students to determine who is responsible, but police have not been notified.

Boys basketball practice at Archbishop Spalding on Saturday was more than just running drills, practicing jumpers and preparing for Sunday afternoon's game at St. Maria Goretti, a 58-56 loss for the Cavaliers. For fifth-year coach Derrick Lewis and the Cavaliers, it was a chance to learn about life and deal with the trying circumstances that came from an incident during Friday night's game at St. Frances. When the Cavaliers returned to their locker room at halftime, they found their belongings had been sorted through and some items were missing.
