Arundel senior Jill Marano, Anne Arundel's Player of the Year in girls basketball last winter, has made a verbal commitment to play at Division I La Salle University in Philadelphia. The first-team All-Metro guard averaged 15.8 points, 5.3 assists and 4.5 steals as a junior last season to lead the Wildcats (25-2) to the Class 4A state championship. Fast to the basket as well as with good outside range, Marano shot 50.6 percent from the field and 81 percent from the line, coming up with the big play at either end. In two state tournament games, she had 36 points, 17 assists and nine steals with a 15-point, eight-assist effort in a 61-55 win in the final.

Move over, Sue Bird. Look out, Ginny Doyle. Jill Marano just put together an unbelievable season at the free-throw line for La Salle University. The former Arundel High star hit 88 of 93 free throws, 94.6 percent, which is expected to go down as the second-best foul-shooting season in the history of NCAA women's basketball. The mark should become official once the women's tournament is completed and the season is over. Marano, a 5-foot-7 sophomore shooting guard, passed the celebrated Bird (94.2 percent in 2001-02)

The Arundel Wildcats have been a good basketball team for quite a while now, always considered a state contender as well as playing the role of measuring stick for the rest of the county. Last night in Gambrills, an emerging Glen Burnie team went in looking to find out just how close it was. The answer? Inches. The No. 4-ranked Wildcats needed an unconventional seven-point play in the middle of the fourth quarter with junior guard Jill Marano providing the necessary spark off the bench in a 62-59 win over the No. 17 Gophers.

Gary Neal Aberdeen, boys basketball Neal, a 6-foot-3, 175-pound sophomore, drove and scored over Gywnn Park's 6-9 center Sharrod Ford with 5.5 seconds remaining to bring the Eagles (26-1) their first state title since 1976. Neal, Aberdeen's fourth-leading scorer this season with an 11-point average, had 15 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and two blocks against Gwynn Park. Aberdeen coach Rich Hart said he wanted Neal to have the ball in that situation: "He's our best playmaker and his court awareness is exceptional."

For a half, the Annapolis girls basketball team played like a contender for a state title. But No. 2-ranked Arundel, the defending Class 4A state champion, showed its mettle by overcoming a one-point deficit in the first quarter and scoring 38 points in the second half to romp over the host Panthers, 66-35, in Annapolis last night. Senior guard Jill Marano led the Wildcats with 25 points, five steals and four rebounds, but it wasn't easy as Arundel (9-1 overall, 4-0 county) appeared to be sluggish coming out of the gate.

The Arundel Wildcats are returning to the Class 4A state tournament with a total girls basketball package. While most of the attention is appropriately directed at their two junior standouts, guard Jill Marano and forward Najmah Fauntleroy, the No. 6-ranked Wildcats (23-2) go into today's 3 p.m. semifinal at UMBC against Frederick (18-7) with much more. Oxon Hill (18-4) takes on No. 7 Western (19-6) in the 5 p.m. semifinal, with the championship game set for 3 p.m. Saturday. "They'll be looking to contain Fauntleroy and Marano, but we've played with a team concept all year long," said Arundel coach Lee Rogers, whose Wildcats have reached the state tournament four of the last six years, winning it all in 1996.

Kaiser Chowdhry came to the Georgetown University men's soccer team this fall with a lot of hype, a storied high school scoring career at McDonogh, and an impressive label as The Sun Player of the Year. The Hoyas obviously were expecting big things from the 5-foot-8 scoring machine. Certainly, 97 goals and 51 assists in four years in high school are hard to ignore. So was the freshman's performance this season for 9-9-1 Georgetown. He came out of the gate shooting as all big scorers do, and when the season had ended, Chowdhry had taken more shots than anybody else on team (38 shots in 16 games played)

Player of the Year Najmah Fauntleroy, Arundel: The outstanding performance put forth by the senior forward shouldn't have been a surprise. Tabbed by Street & Smith's as an honorable-mention preseason All-American, Fauntleroy averaged a double double in points (15.0) and rebounds (14.1) a game. Not terribly imposing at 6 feet, Fauntleroy was a ferocious defender who averaged 3.2 steals a game and frequently grabbed a defensive board to kick-start the Wildcats' fast break. With 1,180 rebounds in a four-year career, she smashed the old school record of 903 career rebounds set by Chavonne Hammond.

The beginning was the end for the South River girls basketball team.

South River fanned on all 11 shots in the opening quarter, allowing the reigning Class 4A state champ Wildcats to enjoy a 13-0 lead at the end of the period. Junior guard Jessica Olsen (a team-high nine points) sank a three-pointer for the Seahawks' first basket with 1:04 gone in the second quarter.
