Marcus Taylor, Michigan State The Spartans start senior David Thomas on the wing and sophomore Aloysius Anagonye down low, but they are at their best when coach Tom Izzo sends in his superb freshmen, Marcus Taylor and Zach Randolph, to work with the big three of Charlie Bell, Jason Richardson and Andre Hutson. Taylor and Randolph were inserted into the starting lineup after a Jan. 7 loss at Indiana, but Izzo went back to bringing them off the bench after a Feb. 6 loss at Illinois. Taylor, 6 feet 3, 190 pounds, allows Bell to move from the point to the wing opposite Richardson, which increases the Spartans' offensive efficiency.

COLLEGE PARK -- The Dunbar Poets say their annual pilgrimage to the state basketball championships never gets old. In yesterday's Class 1A title game at Comcast Center, the East Baltimore team, best known for its speed and athleticism, created a new twist, surprising Allegany with seven three-pointers in a 68-47 win. "Maybe they thought we couldn't hit them tonight after playing [Friday] and coming back. Maybe they thought we had tired legs," Dunbar coach Eric Lee said. "Not these kids.

Poolesville of Montgomery County has absorbed losses to Dunbar that have ended each of its past three seasons. Dunbar's eight-point win in 2003 was followed by last year's of 20 points.

Dunbar freshman Tavon Austin rushed for 163 yards and his 18th and 19th touchdowns, including a 97-yarder; senior Quinton Garrus (114 yards) ran for his 10th and 11th scores; and senior Marcus Taylor (4-for-6, 120 yards)

For Southwestern, the difference between winning and losing might have had as much to do with Dunbar's failure to convert critical free throws and layups as it did with the host Sabers' penchant for regaining composure. One thing is certain: Last night's 40-36 non-divisional Baltimore City League victory by the fourth-ranked Sabers (8-2) had a lot to do with the abilities of 6-foot-5 Juawan Rhubottom and 6-8 Wayne Dorsey to get their hands on the ball. Rhubottom grabbed seven of his 15 rebounds at the offensive end, Dorsey added 14rebounds, and each scored 12 points.

MINNEAPOLIS - Guards rule. They always have. "We have the ball all the time," said Chris Duhon, a guard for Duke, one of the teams playing in the Final Four. As usual, they will likely determine the outcome this weekend when the semifinalists compete for the national title in men's basketball. And never has rating the guards been less of an indicator than it was yesterday, when several analysts described the matchups as even. The last time the Final Four had a group of guards this good was two years ago, with the likes of Connecticut's Khalid El-Amin, Ohio State's Michael Redd and Scoonie Penn and Michigan State's Mateen Cleaves.

Missed layups and free throws hurt No. 2 Dunbar in Tuesday's loss to visiting Baltimore City rival Walbrook, ruining the Poets' quest for an unbeaten season. But if last night's 77-59 rout of Gwynn Park of Prince George's County is an indication, the Poets may not taste defeat again as they take aim at a third straight Class 1A state title. Darron Edwards scored 18 points, All-Metro player Nathan Irby contributed 13, Delano Johnson had 11 points and eight rebounds, and Craig Singletary had 10 points and nine rebounds in a nearly flawless effort by the Poets (6-1)
