On a day of celebration when Loyola High dedicated the hardwood floor in honor of Dons coaching legend Jerry Savage, Notre Dame-bound Martin Geben and St. Maria Goretti crashed the party. The Gaels (17-7) broke a halftime tie with a 14-7 run Sunday and won, 56-43. The combination of inside play from two big forwards, Geben at 6feet9 and Tobias Christensen 6-6, and constant ball pressure from Donte Doleman allowed Goretti to pull away in the second half. The Dons (6-12) got off to a fast start but scored more points in the first quarter, 17, than in the entire second half, 15. Loyola opened the game with a 7-2 run. A sagging man-to-man defense stifled the Goretti big men and forced them to shoot from the perimeter.

No. 4 St. Frances knew exactly who to go to in a tight game Thursday night against St. Maria Goretti. Senior forward Dwayne Morgan has responded much of the season. Coming out of a timeout with the Panthers up three and 2 minutes, 15 seconds left, Morgan took position deep in the post, got an entry pass, faked and then shot over Goretti standout Martin Geben. It banked off the backboard and in, the statement basket that would help St. Frances secure a 52-44 win over the Gaels. Morgan had a game-high 27 points - 17 in the second half - as the Panthers improved to 13-3 overall and 3-0 in the Baltimore Catholic League.

Biking Charity ride through Md. begins today Kris Bailey helped organize a charity bike ride that will cover 365 miles throughout Maryland, mostly because she saw a need that struck close to home. Never mind that the proceeds from the five-day event will go to aid women in Cambodia, Asia, and Malawi, Africa, each thousands of miles away. Bailey saw mothers and daughters in difficult circumstances, with the same hopes as the women in her life. "The moms, they have kids, they have husbands, they want to feed their kids, provide for their family, have access to health care," Bailey said.

John Carroll's Malcolm McMillan and St. Frances' R.J. Williams share plenty of the same fine qualities on the basketball court. Both are senior point guards headed to Division I college programs, and both like the ball in their hands when their teams need something positive to happen. At the Baltimore Catholic League's awards banquet at Snyder's Restaurant on Monday night, the two standouts shared something else -- the podium, as they were named the co-BCL Players of the Year. McMillan, headed for Central Connecticut State, has led the No. 2 Patriots to a 29-2 mark this season that includes Sunday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship, a 70-58 win over No. 7 St. Frances.
