Baltimore produced a handful of national dynasties in the second half of the 20th century. Johnny Unitas and the Colts spread the popularity of pro football in the late 1950s. From 1969 to 1971, the Orioles had the Best Damned Team in Baseball. Just ask Earl Weaver. Johns Hopkins University won six NCAA lacrosse titles from 1978 to 1987. A step down on the educational ladder but top rung with basketball fans was another institution: Dunbar High School hoops. The Poets and their followers will gather tomorrow at the school's gym on the corner of Orleans and Central for a series of old-timers games, an event that quickly sold out. The draws include the crew from the 1982-83 season that has long been acclaimed as, if not the best high school team ever, then certainly on that debate's short list.

Annapolis' boys basketball team (3-0) is in a no-lose situation tonight despite the fact that No. 5 Dunbar pays a visit to the No. 11 Panthers' Riva Road gym.Or, at least, the fans can't lose by paying $3 for a ticket to a unique doubleheader.It's going to be a nostalgic kind of night in the Capital City with a Panther alumni game set for 6 p.m. and the Panthers and Poets to tip off at 8 p.m.The tip-off is the start of a big weekend for Anne Arundel County boys basketball. The county's top two teams are playing host to two of Baltimore's best with No. 3 Calvert Hall (5-0)

Many of the players who walked onto the court for the inaugural David Brown Memorial All-Star Game last night at Baltimore City Community College were rivals during their high school days.But last night wasn't about rivalries or competition. It was about peace. An attempt to confront the random violence that has claimed many victims.One of those victims was Brown, a former standout at BCCC and Pfeiffer College in Misenheimer, N.C., who was killed in January. Brown was shot as he sat in a car at a traffic light on Russell Street en route to a basketball game at the USAir Arena.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Is it the creativity on offense, or his work at the defensive end?Is it the way his team usually wins, or how he was nearly a part of Arkansas' run to the NCAA title last season?None of the above. With Michael Lloyd, the topic of discussion is usually his scarlet letter, and in his case, the A stands for attitude.The putdowns and pained expressions that were accepted on (( the playgrounds of Baltimore don't always sit well with teammates, coaches and referees. As the biggest star on a Dunbar High team that was the nation's best and now as the point guard for Syracuse University, Lloyd has labored to get his emotions under control and cease being his own worst enemy.

Attitudes. Individual statistics. A team in turmoil.That was Dunbar in December, when it was continuing its winning ways on the court, but struggling to adjust to new coach Paul Smith.Two months later, the No. 3 Poets are still winning, with the latest being a 71-56 victory over visiting and No. 17 Walbrook (9-9) in a Baltimore City nonleague game yesterday. But harmony and confidence now are breeding success for Dunbar."They are still understanding some different things from what they did last year," said Smith.

ANNAPOLIS -- Dunbar had the speed, quickness and court discipline, but most of all the inside power, to turn last night's matchup of No. 1- and No. 2-ranked teams into a mismatch, as the Poets overpowered host Annapolis, 80-61.Dunbar (16-1) earned its fifth victory over the Panthers (11-2) in as many games by frustrating a matchup zone that was supposed to force it to hit from the outside.But the Poets went inside, anyway.They not only burned Annapolis for basket after basket off the baseline but had a 55-29 rebounding advantage.

As they say, mother knows best."Turk is going to beat the hell out of him," Norma Salmon predicted before the game. "He's messing with Scooter already.""Turk," for the uninitiated, is Maryland's Keith Booth. "Scooter" is Towson State's Terrance Alexander. And Norma was right -- Booth didn't personally squash his former Dunbar High teammate last night at the Baltimore Arena, but Maryland crushed Towson, 109-71.Now, not many mothers call their son "Turk," but allow Norma to explain."His father is named Keith, his uncle is named Keith, and he's got two little cousins named Keith," she said, struggling to be heard as her daughter Kendra, 22, screamed, "Miss it Scooter!"

For Michael Lloyd, it hits the hardest when he's watching basketball and the Arkansas Razorbacks are on."Sometimes, I just get up and leave the room for a little bit," Lloyd said.For Donta Bright, it becomes most difficult when he's fidgeting in the stands at the University of Massachusetts' Curry Hicks Field House while watching the Minutemen play. "I sit there thinking to myself," Bright said, "that I could be helping this team right now."At this time a year ago, Lloyd and Bright were earning All-American status on a Dunbar basketball team on its way to a national championship.
