Meredith Smith is finally able to coach the area's top-ranked boys basketball team. Last night's 71-59 victory over Carver (4-4) was Southern of Baltimore's sixth without a loss. But it was only the second game with Smith watching from the bench and his first at home. Smith coached his first game of the season Tuesday at Northern, leading his Bulldogs, ranked No. 7 nationally, to a whopping 82-52 victory. Before that, the 19th-year coach occasionally had watched from the stands as long-time assistant Mike Wise kept the talented Bulldogs going.

The Smith household was one of "intense trash-talking" the night before Southern, then ranked No. 1 in the area, played Dunbar, then No. 5, last month.The Southern basketball coach is Meredith Smith, and his son, senior Atman, plays for Dunbar. "It wasn't like our teams hadn't seen each other, so there were no secrets," Smith said, "but he was talking a Dunbar blowout, and I insisted, 'no way.' "The result: Dunbar 78, Southern 70. "Atman had a great game defensively, and he hit some big shots during a run that I think helped make the difference in the game," said Meredith Smith.

Southern-B coach Meredith Smith called it a "psychological victory."Dunbar guard Billy Wells said it was the most painful loss of the season, even though the Poets lost two games at the buzzer to nationally ranked teams within 24 hours.Last December, Dunbar was seemingly on its way to beating Southern, leading by 10 points with a little over a minute left. Some of the capacity crowd of 2,000 at the Coppin Center began to exit."Only we knew that we were going to win," said Southern junior forward John Hemsley.
