The UMBC men's basketball team has protected its turf at RAC Arena, winning four of five games this season in Catonsville. On the flipside, however, the Retrievers are winless away from home, going 0-8 en route to a 4-9 record. Coach Aki Thomas knows that if UMBC harbors any hope of advancing deep into the America East tournament, the team must begin winning on the road. “It's important,” he said Tuesday. “I'm glad that we're able to take care of home for the most part, but we're going to have to steal a few on the road.

One night after they broke out of an eight-game losing streak by beating Lowell, 2-1, the IronBirds fell back into the loss column, falling 9-3 to the visiting Spinners on Thursday. Heading into the final inning, Aberdeen had collected just four hits on the Lowell staff. "Sometimes you see very good pitchers, some you see so-so pitchers," Aberdeen manager Leo Gomez said after the game. "Today, the guy that [started] for them pitched a really good game. But, you just need to keep working hard, keep trying to get your bats [working]

BOSTON-- --It took about two years, but Mike Lowell has re-established himself as a marquee third baseman, and last night put himself in great position to win his second World Series ring, which isn't bad for a guy the Florida Marlins couldn't give away during the 2005 season. How do we know this? Because Lowell was offered to the Orioles that year as an add-on to a deal for front-line starting pitcher A.J. Burnett, but the front office was not willing to assume Lowell's big salary and the risk that Burnett would become a free agent at the end of the year.

BOSTON -- As good of a hitter as Mike Lowell is, Orioles manager Dave Trembley's decision in the bottom of the fifth inning last night was an easy one. With men on second and third and one out and every run precious with Jon Lester still carrying a shutout bid, Trembley had Jeremy Guthrie issue an intentional walk to Boston Red Sox slugger Manny Ramirez to load the bases. "Lowell is 2-for-15 off [Guthrie]," Trembley said. "Who are you going to face, a guy that has hit 500 home runs in his career or are you going to try to make one pitch and try to get a double play and get to the end of the inning?

LAKELAND, Fla. - Bowie State has had to adapt to many different styles and speeds on its march toward the NCAA Division II men's basketball championship, and yesterday provided another example. The Bulldogs found their aggressiveness after a lethargic first half and pulled away from Massachusetts-Lowell, 72-62, to reach tonight's national semifinals at the Lakeland Center. Bowie, which raised its school-record victory total to 30 against four losses, will face eight-time national champion Kentucky Wesleyan (30-3)

SEATTLE - The Orioles remain in the running to acquire pitcher A.J. Burnett from the Florida Marlins, according to an industry source, with the package expanding to possibly include third baseman Mike Lowell. One source said the discussions have heated up, though some insiders believe the Chicago White Sox remain the favorites to land Burnett. Burnett is a free agent after this season, and the Marlins have conceded that he won't re-sign. The Orioles want a front-line starter for the rotation, and they'd become a better match if willing to absorb Lowell's contract, which pays him $18 million over the next two seasons.

MINNEAPOLIS - While other teams have reportedly entered the mix in trade talks with Florida involving pitcher A.J. Burnett, the Orioles remain resolute that the Marlins pick up half of third baseman Mike Lowell's contract, and even that may not be enough. One club source said that even if Florida absorbs about $10 million of the approximately $21 million due to Lowell over the next 2 1/2 seasons, the Orioles would still "have to look very hard" at making the deal, which has Burnett, the No. 1 starter that they so covet, as the centerpiece.

A prolific offense that helped the No. 7 UMBC men's soccer team open the season with nine consecutive wins is not as productive as it once was, and the unit could be forced to play against America East foe UMass Lowell without two key starters. Senior forward Pete Caringi III is doubtful after sustaining a concussion in the Retrievers' 0-0 double-overtime tie with Binghamton last Saturday. Senior midfielder Kadeem Dacres was assessed his fifth yellow card of the season in that contest and must serve a mandatory one-game suspension.

College lacrosse Report: UMBC aide Stephenson to be head coach at UMass Lowell UMBC lacrosse assistant coach Ed Stephenson will be the first men's head coach at UMass Lowell, LaxMagazine.com reported Friday, citing sources. Stephenson has been at UMBC the past two seasons after resigning in protest from the head coaching job at Binghamton in 2011 after he felt Bearcats players were unjustly suspended after allegedly getting in a fight. Stephenson was Binghamton's first coach and in 2004 was America East Coach of the Year.

After 14 hours of watching Sandy storm coverage, I am convinced that no one deserves more praise than the reporters and camerapersons on the ground in places like Ocean City. I know in these snarky, all-you-need-is-irony, postmodern times, lots of folks, including some journalists who should know better, like to make fun of TV reporters standing in high winds and driving rain or snow to report on a storm. I could not disagree more. The image of a correspondent being pounded by the elements is as crystal-clear an objective correlative for the core role of journalism as I can imagine.

MIAMI - Marlins slugger Mike Lowell has looked surprisingly comfortable at the plate in a handful of postseason at-bats, but manager Jack McKeon still says he will not displace rookie third baseman Miguel Cabrera or move him to shortstop to push Lowell back into the everyday lineup. McKeon rebuffed questions about Lowell's status after he moved Cabrera from third to short to make room in the lineup in Game 2. "You want to make a mountain out of a molehill," McKeon said. "I wanted to get Mike a couple of at-bats.

LOWELL, Mass. -- Taller than any structure within five miles, the three old Wang towers stand at the crossroads of Interstate 495 and U.S. 3, the gateway to this old textile-manufacturing city 30 miles northwest of Boston. So when the computer maker went bankrupt five years ago and abandoned the towers, the suddenly empty complex became a symbol of a declining city.The Boston Globe ran an editorial cartoon in which the towers were drawn as a white elephant. Developers debated whether the office complex would work better as a jail or a casino.
