Twenty-four dollars. That, supposedly, was the price Gov. Peter Minuit paid American Indians for the island of Manhattan in 1625. It's a tale historians find suspect. In the first place, whatever Minuit paid was in goods valued at 60 17th-century Dutch guilders; the calculation that this equaled 24 U.S. dollars was made two centuries later -- on what basis, evidently, no one can say. In the second place, the Indians with whom he traded had no understanding of the European idea that land could be sold, no conception of it as a thing one could own. But whatever the details of the transaction, the moral of the story has remained beacon clear for four centuries: The Indians got taken.

Et cetera Pitcher Harman, Terps take Manhattan, 9-0 Brett Harman pitched seven strong innings, Maryland's offense churned out 14 hits and the Terrapins completed a four-game sweep of Manhattan with a 9-0 victory Sunday afternoon. Maryland (9-1) outscored the Jaspers 26-4 in the series and controlled the finale, with Harman in command throughout. The senior struck out five and allowed just three hits in seven innings. It was the fourth dominant performance by a Maryland starting pitcher in as many games — the starting rotation of Brady Kirkpatrick , David Carroll , Sander Beck and Harman allowed just two earned runs in 27 innings of work on the weekend.

Its 8-7 loss to Manhattan on Sunday was agonizing on several levels for Mount St. Mary's. Not only were the Jaspers winless in five games, but the Mountaineers won several key statistical battles, including in shots (35-16), turnovers (17 for Mount St. Mary's compared with 23 for Manhattan) and clears (13-for-16 for the Mountaineers and 11-for-23 for the Jaspers). But despite scoring the last four goals of the contest, Mount St. Mary's couldn't come up with the equalizer and instead dropped to 0-6, matching the program's worst start since 1994.

Mount St. Mary's hopes for the team's first win of the season coming Sunday at Manhattan could improve with the potential return of junior midfielder Clayton Wainer. Wainer, who had scored two goals in two starts for the Mountaineers (0-5), has missed the past three games since suffering a concussion during practice before a 15-5 loss to Delaware on Feb. 22. Coach Tom Gravante said Wainer is making progress in his recovery. “He's good,” Gravante said Thursday. “He wouldn't have been ready on Tuesday [for a home game against No. 3 Johns Hopkins]

Good vibes are becoming more difficult to find around Mount St. Mary's. At 0-5, the team is off to its worst start since 1994 when that squad opened the season with six consecutive losses. That was the last year under coach A.J. Russo, who was replaced by current coach Tom Gravante. The Mountaineers have been outscored 64-19 so far, but Gravante said the players have tried to remain upbeat about the rest of the year. “I think their confidence might be a little bit shaken, but we're in this together as a team,” he said Thursday morning.

Mera Rubell - a 70-year-old formerly penniless Jewish Russian refugee turned Head Start teacher turned hotel mogul turned art collector extraordinaire - is the kind of person who just naturally acquires an entourage. For example, a recent tour of Baltimore's art scene began quietly at 8:40 a.m. with just one car and six sleepy occupants. Eight hours later, the caravan that pulled up outside the Charles Village home of paper artist Cara Ober had grown to three vehicles containing at least 14 people, including four reporters and photographers.

COLLEGE PARK - It might only be a year since Maryland took the same train ride to New York and bus ride to Brooklyn to play defending championship Kentucky at the Barclays Center. But a lot has changed for the Terps as they headed up again for Friday's game against No. 18 Connecticut. Sophomore center Shaquille Cleare is hoping that what is most different is Maryland's attitude. "I think last year going into Barclays, we weren't that prepared," Cleare said Thursday. "I just just think everyone was saying 'We're playing Kentucky,' so I didn't think a lot of guys brought their 'A' game.

Rock fans in New York are a tough, dedicated bunch. They have figured out how to snap up tickets for concerts that sell out the day they're announced. They adapt to great variations between announced and actual show times; they brave frisking, metal detectors, overcrowded halls, belligerent bouncers and exorbitant drink prices.Just about every band in the known universe looks forward to a showcase in New York, where audiences are both discerning and diverse. But where will they play? Often, at places that would be outshone by the dives back home.

Johns Hopkins made history with its 11-0 victory over Manhattan in a Tuesday matinee at Homewood Field. It was the Blue Jays' first shutout since a 9-0 victory at Princeton on March 26, 1988. Coach Dave Pietramala and associate coach Bill Dwan both played on defense that day. "I remember that [game]," Pietramala said. "[But] this is great. I'm pleased that we didn't give up any goals, but I think the more important thing is that it's a good team win. We didn't give up a lot of quality opportunities.
