- The end, for Reggie Holmes, came with 31 seconds left in a blowout loss, when he retreated to the Morgan State bench one last time Friday. The beginning of the end came when West Virginia assigned 6-foot-9 Devin Ebanks to guard Holmes in their NCAA East Regional opener. Holmes hit his first shot - a trademark triple - but spent the rest of the afternoon at HSBC Arena with Ebanks shadowing his every move, hand in Holmes' face, game in West Virginia's pocket. The final score was 77-50 Mountaineers, but the story was the job Ebanks did on Morgan's all-time leading scorer.

During a Christmas tournament in Kevin Thompson's senior year at Walbrook High, the precocious center tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. The way Kevin Thompson Sr. remembers it, the Division I recruiting letters trickled to a halt almost immediately. Todd Bozeman, who had arrived in Baltimore one year before, was the recruiting exception. The Morgan State coach saw beyond the knee injury and perhaps all the way to last weekend's championship victory in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

Selection Sunday was a little more subdued, but no less satisfying, for the Maryland and Morgan State men's basketball teams going to the NCAA tournament for the second straight year. A year ago, Maryland boosted its chances of going to the NCAA tournament by winning back-to-back games in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, but still was nervous about the bid until seeing its name pop up on the television screen. This year, the mind-set was markedly different as the Terps watched together at Comcast Center.

For Corin Adams, the math was simple. Play at talent-laden Syracuse and get limited minutes off the bench. Or play at depleted Morgan State and get all the minutes the petite 5-foot-5 guard could crave. "Instead of playing 12 minutes, I wanted to play 38 minutes," Adams said, reducing her 2006 decision to come to Baltimore and play for the Lady Bears to its lowest common denominator. It was the best signing decision Don Beasley has gotten in five years as Morgan's coach. Adams was a slick ballhandler, quickly became a scorer and essentially has run the show for four straight seasons.

South Carolina State punctured Morgan State's aura of invincibility at Hill Field House on Monday night and dealt the Bears their first Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference loss in nearly a year, 71-68. Led by Jason Flagler's 24 points, the Bulldogs hit 57.1 percent of their shots and held a 12-point lead with 6:39 to play. But Morgan had one final run and narrowly missed pulling off a dramatic comeback when a pair of 3-point shots missed in the final seconds. The Bears battled foul trouble -- they lost leading scorer Reggie Holmes and DeWayne Jackson in the final minute -- but still got to within 70-68 on a runner by Joe Davis with 21 seconds left.
