More than a couple of Leron Fisher 's close friends openly questioned his decision-making process one year ago. Why, some of them asked, would the former Lake Clifton standout pass up a Division II basketball scholarship in favor of junior college? “I knew I could play Division I,” Fisher said Monday. “I knew if I went to junior college for one year and had the opportunity to play my best, I'd come away with a Division I scholarship.” Fisher's JUCO gamble paid off last weekend when Longwood offered him a full ride during his official visit to the Big South school in Farmville, Va. The former Lakers star accepted the Lancers' offer before heading home.

No. 7 Notre Dame made its argument Tuesday for why it still belongs in discussions about the best men's lacrosse team in NCAA Division I. One day removed from falling out of the top spot in The Baltimore Sun's rankings, the Fighting Irish (7-2) rolled to a 17-5 neutral-site victory over a less-experienced Golden Eagles (2-5) squad at Loyola Academy's Hoerster Field in Wilmette, Ill. The Golden Eagles, who started seven underclassmen - including a half-dozen freshmen - kept things close early after a fairly pedestrian first quarter in which both sides tried to control the tempo by being selective on the attacking end. Co-captain Ben Dvorak got Marquette on the scoreboard with 40 seconds left in the opening quarter to tie the score at 1. It didn't stay even for long, however, as Notre Dame's John Scioscia ended the first quarter with the first of his six goals on the day. The score remained that way until near the midway point of the second quarter.

Sean Mosley began nodding his head even before the question was finished. Had Maryland's co-captain, who had been struggling with his shooting until recently, been passing up good looks at the basket? That can be a telltale sign of a player overthinking on the court. "I wasn't taking open shots," Mosley acknowledged. "Now I'm not thinking about it. And when I do get it, I'm shooting.

A Baltimore development company made the winning $1.9 million bid on a slice of Baltimore County-owned land in the heart of Towson at an auction yesterday. The six-tenths-of-an-acre property, left over from the construction of Towsontown Boulevard, includes one of two historic railroad bridge abutments flanking York Road. Longwood Development LLC bid $1,955,000 on the land, said Shirley Murphy, chief of the county's Bureau of Land Acquisition. Because the bid is equal to the lesser of two appraisals on the property, the County Council must approve the sale, Murphy said.

The poor Longwood Lancers entered Comcast Center 0-13 in road games. It didn't take Dr. James Naismith to figure out that the record would quickly and inevitably fall to 0-14. But it's not as if Maryland -- which rolled to a 106-52 nonconference victory Wednesday night in what amounted to a refueling stop between league games -- didn't have something to play for. The Terps used the Longwood game as a golfer uses a driving range - to work on their games. The Terps were led by co-captain Sean Mosley, who emerged from a shooting slump to score 20 points, one shy of his season high.
