Right arm extended, South Carroll's Marshall Strickland soars toward the basket after splitting two Wilde Lake defenders. A third defender darts forth from Strickland's right, attempting to block the shot. In a blink, he flips the basketball to his left hand and finishes the layup, leaving the surprised defender swatting at air. A few minutes later, the nationally touted 6-foot-2 junior point guard, playing his first home game for his newly adopted Cavaliers, drives the paint again. This time, the ball blurs as he curls it behind his back into his left hand and lays it off the backboard, thwarting a pair of astonished defenders.

Marah Strickland could have settled for an easier route. Instead of signing with Maryland's defending national champion women's basketball team, the Towson Catholic senior could have chosen to play somewhere else. Plenty of other top-notch programs recruited the smooth 6-foot guard, last season's All-Metro Player of the Year and a Street & Smith's preseason second-team All-American. On some of those teams, she could have stepped right into the starting lineup, their superstar apparent.

South Carroll standout Marshall Strickland has exhausted his public high school basketball eligibility in Maryland, according to Ned Sparks, Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association director. Strickland's father yesterday suggested he would appeal, and his son said he would attend Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va., if he can't return to South Carroll. "I love South Carroll and will go back if I can. Last season was so much fun and everybody was excited about our team," said Marshall Strickland Jr., a senior who orally committed to Indiana University on Wednesday.

Quarterback Tim Frazier walked into Hampton (Va.) University coach Joe Taylor's office Monday and told him it was time to put his medical school career first and football second. The former Poly standout delivered the news to Taylor just two days after he had come home to Baltimore and led Hampton on a relentless comeback journey that fell just short against Morgan State. Hampton was trailing 49-13 midway through the third quarter when Frazier, who had started the game, returned and engineered a 29-3 surge that left the Pirates with a much more respectable loss, 52-42.

A Carroll County judge will hear from both sides today in a running dispute between South Carroll High School basketball player Marshall Strickland and state public school officials who say he used up his eligibility to play high-school ball before his senior year began. The executive director of the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association ruled Nov. 16 that Marshall Strickland, of Mount Airy, could not play in his senior year because he already has played four years of varsity basketball.

The eligibility of a South Carroll High standout to play varsity basketball in his senior year turns upon six games played during three weeks in the fall of 1997, when he was on the team at a Boston-area private school, according to testimony yesterday in Carroll County Circuit Court. Marshall Strickland III, 18, of Mount Airy, was found ineligible earlier this year by county and state public school athletic officials, who said he already had played all four years allowed him. He appealed that decision Nov. 21 to state school superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick, and went to court when it became obvious that she would not decide the matter before the Cavaliers' opening game last Wednesday.

South Carroll senior Marshall Strickland made a surprising return to the basketball court last night, just hours after a Carroll County Circuit Court judge granted a temporary restraining order allowing him to play despite a Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association ruling that Strickland had exhausted his high school eligibility. Strickland, an Indiana University signee who is regarded as one of the top high school point guards in the country, scored 33 points and had nine assists in a 79-54 victory for South Carroll at home against Glenelg.

A Carroll County Circuit Court judge said yesterday that he needs to hear evidence before deciding whether to continue an order that allows South Carroll High School basketball star Marshall Strickland to play, despite a finding by state public school officials that the senior athlete has no more high-school eligibility. Judge Michael M. Galloway had issued a temporary order Wednesday before South Carroll's season-opening game, which was won with the help of Strickland's 33 points. The Cavaliers next play Wednesday.

Marshall Strickland III cannot play basketball for the South Carroll High School Cavaliers tonight -- and probably for the rest of his senior year. A Carroll County judge found yesterday that the All-Metro point guard is unlikely to win his appeal of a state ruling that he is ineligible because he already has played four seasons. In 45-minute decision from the bench, Circuit Judge Michael M. Galloway praised Strickland in particular and high school athletics in general, recalling his own days as a football player and later as a coach at Westminster High School.

BOYS PLAYER OF THE YEAR Josh Boone South Carroll, senior Utter domination. No two words better describe his play in the low post for the majority of this season. The 6-foot-9 center averaged 20 points, 14.4 rebounds and seven blocks per game, leading the Cavaliers (20-6) to their second straight county championship and their first trip to the Class 3A state semifinals since 1989. After excelling mainly on defense a year ago and earning second-team All-Metro honors, Boone significantly stepped up his game on offense as well, especially after South Carroll's Indiana-bound point guard, Marshall Strickland, was ruled ineligible early in the season.
