Backup center James Donaldson was suspended by the Dallas Mavericks for last night's game against the San Antonio Spurs after a practice scuffle that slightly injured one player.On Tuesday, Donaldson skirmished with guard Rolando Blackman. Guard Derek Harper was scratched twice under an (( eye trying to break up the scuffle.Dallas has lost 13 of 14, and Donaldson said the losing created tension. Harper disagreed."This has nothing to do with what's going on out on the floor," he said. "James is just a 7-foot punk."

Madi Hall said she's part of Century's backup plan, just in case the Knights have to tangle with quality opponents and scoring is at a premium. So there she was late in the second half Monday, doing whatever she could to keep the ball from trickling into her team's cage while Manchester Valley tried furiously to mount a comeback. The senior's stick save on a loose ball with about 15 minutes to play was just one of a few defensive stops the Knights made during their 2-1 win, a victory that knocked the Mavericks from their share of first place in the Carroll County field hockey standings.

When the whistle sounded at the end of the second half, Manchester Valley found itself in a familiar position. For the third time in three games, the visiting Mavericks would need overtime to decide the outcome, this time against Century. However, this time the No. 3 Knights and the No. 14 Mavericks failed to score and the game ended in a 3-3 tie. "My defense played our hearts out, Century has a great offensive team and the girls have speed all around," Manchester Valley coach Joe Miller said.

It wasn't an easy road this fall for the Manchester Valley High School girls' soccer team. After winning the school's first-ever state championship last fall, the Mavericks endured graduation losses at several key spots, and with a 4-3-2 record at midseason, coach Joe Miller's team was far from a lock to repeat as Class 1A state champions. At that point, the coach made some lineup changes and watched his charges take off. A season-ending nine-game winning streak was more than enough to propel the team to a second straight Manchester Valley state championship.

As the "Three J's," Jim Jackson, Jamal Mashburn and Jason Kidd once graced the cover of the Dallas Mavericks' media guide. They filmed promotional videos together and were supposed to return the Mavericks to respectability in the NBA.Instead, the Three J's have been reduced by one with the trade of Kidd last week to the Phoenix Suns, and by next month all the J's might be gone as rumors persist that Mashburn and Jackson are on the trading block.What went wrong in Dallas? No one was getting along.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Programmers are often thought of as the mavericks of the computer business, and in many respects that's true.But during the past 10 years, as personal computers have moved from hobbyist oddities to household appliances, the business of programming has changed. Development is more corporate, organized, driven by business plans and marketing white papers instead of the creative spark of a maverick's imagination.Except for computer games, that is.Software is usually written in modules by teams of programmers at companies with millions of dollars in annual revenues.

The Dallas Mavericks, for all the wrong reasons, are one of the most feared teams in the NBA.No self-respecting team wants to lose to the Mavericks, who bring a 6-59 record to the Capital Centre tonight to play the Washington Bullets.Until their recent signing of recalcitrant first-round draft choice Jim Jackson and consecutive victories last week over Orlando and Philadelphia -- their first road win of the year -- the Mavericks appeared a safe bet to replace the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers (9-73)

When Eastern Tech football coach Marc Mesaros earned his 100th career victory Friday, he was more thrilled with the way his team played in its 51-7 win over Pikesville. The Mavericks, however, were more interested in the milestone, presenting Mesaros a football with "100" written on it. "All the kids signed it, and they had a big announcement at the end of the game. The kids dumped water on me," Mesaros said with a laugh. "It was a very nice show of affection and respect. "The 100-win thing is great.

In its impressive first two weeks of the season, the Towson girls soccer team has thrived as each players has shown a good understanding of their role.

Rockhill was a constant threat in the Generals' home game against Baltimore County rival Eastern Tech on Wednesday and her opportunistic play paid off with a goal early in the second half.

Baumgardner talked at the end of the state indoor meet about how his team was going to push really hard to win the state title in the spring. The Mavericks were frustrated because Pikesville had rallied to beat them by four points to capture the Class 1A indoor title. The coach was right, as the Mavericks ran well throughout a tough spring and won the Class 1A state title despite losing their top runner, Katie Leisher, to dehydration midway through the championship meet. The team turned in a strong performance to win its first outdoor track state title with 102.5 points.

Brigance, the Ravens' director of player development, stopped by as a favor to coach Mike Hernandez.

Grimm pitched a complete game two-hitter, striking out 12, and drove in a pair of runs in a 9-0 win over Sparrows Point at the University of Maryland.
