Danny Shand is quick to answer the hypothetical question, taking it on with the same brash confidence the senior shows on the court as point guard of the New Town boys basketball team. If the Titans return to the state title game and you get to the free-throw line, say, six times in the fourth quarter, how many will you make? “I'm knocking down all six,” he states boldly, and then smiles. “I'm getting them all this year.” The most difficult day of Shand's basketball life came last March.

New Town boys basketball coach Mike Daniel has had a simple philosophy go a long way in his 29 years of coaching in the area. Covering tenures at Towson Catholic, and then City before a one-year stop at Severn last season and this one at New Town, Daniel matter-of-factly states what the foundation has been the same for the success all of his teams over the years. "We just play hard and live and die by defense," he said. Fittingly, on the night he won his 500th career game, New Town was able to offset visiting Randallstown's size advantage with quickness and dogged defense.

The path from Baltimore to the National Basketball Association is dotted with big names and busts, with perennial All-Stars like Carmelo Anthony, heartwarming reclamation projects like Gary Neal and whatever-happened-to former first-round draft picks like Josh Boone. But in the decade since Anthony was drafted behind a legend-in-the-making named LeBron James and the long-forgotten Darko Milicic, an argument can be made that no single family has made a bigger impact in the NBA than the Connelly brothers.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W. Va. -- Four years ago, Rudy Archer said he felt "like my whole world had come to an end."Before what would have been his senior year at Maryland, the talented point guard from Southwestern High in Baltimore became a cause celebre on the College Park campus.An NCAA investigation ruled that assistant coaches were guilty of transporting Archer to summer classes at Prince George's Community College, where he was making up grades to remain eligible for basketball.Ultimately, the NCAA would place the Terps basketball program on probation, with coach Bob Wade forced to resign and athletic director Lew Perkins soon following in his wake.

BEAUFORT, N.C. -- The crew stowed its plunder and raised the Jolly Roger in triumph, and skipper Walter Matheson set the wheel for home. It was a cold, bright day in November aboard the lumbering Pelican III, and a long quest had finally ended.Crew members believed they'd found the flagship of Blackbeard the pirate, the 40-gun Queen Anne's Revenge, buried on a sandbar in 20 feet of water two miles offshore. They'd felt it in their bones almost from the moment a diver emerged from the brown water to shout, "There's cannons down there!"

Mike Daniel City The area had a number of coaches who did fine jobs, with Milford Mill's Albert Holley and Dunbar's Cyrus Jones leading their teams to state titles and Darnell Dantzler guiding Edmondson to its first Baltimore City crown. But no coach met the inevitable challenge Daniel faced in leading his No. 1 Knights (23-2) to their second straight Class 2A state title. Before dominating the state tournament - cruising past Easton, 62-38, in the semifinal before coming away with a 56-45 win over Gwynn Park in the title game - the Knights had to survive the demanding North region, which also featured Lake Clifton, Digital Harbor and Edmondson.
