COLLEGE PARK - The chronic injury problems that have hampered Maryland backup center Sam Marvis struck again yesterday morning when he dislocated his right shoulder for the third time in a little under a year. Marvis, a 6-foot-3, 265-pound redshirt sophomore, is most likely lost for the season because doctors probably would not operate on the shoulder for a third time in such a short span. "A third operation now wouldn't do him much good," said Maryland coach Ron Vanderlinden. "That's a bad break for us because you don't want to lose your second-team center.

The Rev. Marvis P. May walked the streets near Lafayette Square, delivering a message of hope and encouragement throughout some of West Baltimore's toughest streets. Pastor of Macedonia Baptist Church for nearly two decades, he died Saturday at Union Memorial Hospital of undetermined causes, church officials said. He was 47. "He was born to preach and, in my estimation, was one of the most gifted preachers I've ever known," said the Rev. A.C.D. Vaughn, pastor of Sharon Baptist Church.

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Marvis Thornton Jr. is the legal name, given by the father who believed his first born should be named after him. Less than two weeks after he was born, however, Marvis Jr. had a new name, given to him in honor of the favorite funk band of his mother, Darlene Grimes. "I just started calling him Bootsy," she said. "I never thought much about it. He's just always been my Bootsy." It stuck, to the point that Bootsy Thornton has never known any other name. "I had no choice.
