Mark Turgeon had to pause and collect himself while proudly recounting how his bench players rallied in Maryland's double-overtime loss to Miami - a game in which the coach was ejected and spent the extra periods in the locker room receiving texts and trying vainly to follow what was unfolding on the court. Turgeon - who faces a mentor in North Carolina coach Roy Williamsat Comcast Center on Saturday  - spent Friday's media session looking back to the bizarre Miami game and looking ahead to going against Williams for the first time.

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]

There's nothing quite like the locker room scene the day after an NFL team has been eliminated from the playoffs, a scene that's surreal and tinged with sadness, as the Ravensdemonstrated again Monday morning.  Still reeling from Sunday's heartbreaking 23-20 loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game, they reported to The Castle for their season-ending position meetings and to clean out their lockers, some of them for the last time as Ravens.  Joe Flacco signed helmets for Lardarius Webb and Terrence Cody.

The Ravens locker room, even on the quietest of days, is a churning, bubbling storm of music and voices. Most of the time, it feels as chaotic as a busy train station, as crowded and lively as a food market. A high-stakes game of bean bag toss in the middle of the room fuels perpetual shouting and arguing. Terrell Suggs' frequently leaves movies blaring on the Blu-ray player set up in his locker, but he ignores the dialogue to rib his teammates, or the media, with his booming voice. Terrence Cody has music thumping from his iPod speakers so frequently, his teammates dubbed the area surrounding his locker as "Patterson Park," and Cody responded by writing those words on a piece of athletic tape, then slapping it on the wall above his locker.

That they don't have the best postseason reputation is not lost on the Ravens. The franchise is 9-6 in the playoffs, and four of those victories occurred during the team's magical run to win Super Bowl XXXV to cap the 2000 season. The Ravens are the only club in the NFL to have qualified for the postseason in each of the past four years, but don't have a Super Bowl or AFC championship title and just one AFC North crown to show for their labor. "You don't want to be the team that just has an 18-game season every year," outside linebacker Jarret Johnson said recently.

  Running in Saturday's Foot Locker National Cross Country Championship in San Diego was an eye-opening experience for Hannah Oneda. It wasn't just that the Winters Mill senior was competing in her first national-level event. Oneda actually had to get used to chasing down the lead pack rather than separating herself from it. The freshly minted All-Metro Runner of the Year -- who won the Class 2A state title in record time last month -- finished 33rd out of 40 at the Foot Locker meet, completing the 5K course in 18 minutes, 21 seconds.

Greg Little repeatedly dropped the ball Sunday afternoon, and again after it when he ducked out of the locker room without speaking to the media. But he set about correcting both of those mistakes on Monday. He faced the music and stated his determination to become an elite receiver like Cincinnati's A.J. Green. "It was kind of like when basketball players have a bad day shooting free throws," he said. "Sometimes you can't throw it into the ocean. Sometimes you just can't ever hang onto it. It's definitely something I can learn and grow from.

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.

Joy swelled through every corner of Nationals Park late Thursday afternoon after a landmark victory by the winningest Washington Nationals team in six years. But before the announced 21,161 could reach the exits, and the players could change into their street clothes for their flight to Chicago, euphoria faded into shock, then shattered into a jumble of emotions. Manager Jim Riggleman had chosen this heady moment — the day the Nationals moved over .500 in June for the first time since 2005 — to resign abruptly, taking a principled stand against what he saw as an unfair contract situation: the team's refusal to pick up the option that would have kept him in place for the 2012 season.

Derrek Lee, who had been an Oriole for all of 31/2 months, summoned his struggling teammates together and delivered a message that was a mix of encouragement, insight and advice. With the Orioles in the midst of an eight-game losing streak in mid-April, Lee urged his teammates to relax, acknowledged that he needed to start doing his part and concluded there was too much talent in the home clubhouse for the lineup to be performing as it was. "He thought it was appropriate at the time, and so did everybody else," Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis said.
