Saturday's edition of The Sun will include a profile on Johns Hopkins junior Pierce Bassett and Maryland redshirt sophomore Niko Amato, the starting goalkeepers for Saturday evening's battle between the state powerhouses. It's an intriguing matchup between different styles, according to ESPN analyst Mark Dixon. “Bassett is more of a Steady Eddie,” Dixon said. “He's very consistent. … I think Amato is a little flashier in terms of his streaks. There are times when he looks like a brick wall and nothing gets by him, and then there are times when he lets in soft goals.

When the Bratton twins, Rhamel and Shamel, were being recruited out of high school in Huntington, N.Y., all the college coaches knew they were cocky, arrogant and full of themselves. Not much has changed the last four years during their stay at Virginia. The question, though, is can No. 9 Virginia (9-5) survive without the two dominating midfielders and make a serious run deep into the post season? Shamel Bratton (20 goals, eight assists) was dismissed from team and Rhamel (17, 5)

From his seat at a Federal Hill restaurant, surrounded by friends, Steele Stanwick had a funny feeling as he watched his younger brother Wells in Johns Hopkins' 14-8 victory at Virginia in the first round of the NCAA men's lacrosse tournament Sunday. It was the feeling that Steele Stanwick had seen his brother's dodges and goals before - namely because he himself had used them and had scored them. "It was kind of surreal," said the elder Stanwick, a Loyola High grad and former Cavalier.

In a move that will surprise no one, Loyola Maryland defenseman Joe Fletcher has spent a considerable amount of time watching film of Albany attackman Lyle Thompson, and the Greyhounds senior knows that the tape doesn't lie.
