When Poly senior Darrion Stokes-Graham is asked to look back on 2012, he can't help but smile. It has been a good year for him. At the start of the year, the 6-foot-3 forward emerged as a force for the Engineers basketball team and his strong play as a junior helped Poly to a breakthrough 15-7 record. This season, his third on varsity and second as a starter, he's a team captain and has continued to develop his game with the team off to a 5-1 start. Stokes-Graham is averaging 18 points and 11 rebounds so far this season, and he also is contributing three steals and two blocks per game.

Donte Greene finally fulfilled his dream of making the NBA, even if it took a little longer than expected. The 6-foot-10 small forward and Baltimore native was selected 28th by the Memphis Grizzlies last night in the first round of the NBA draft. Greene, who played his high school ball at Towson Catholic, was projected to go between the 13th and 20th pick. "It was definitely tough, seeing teams that told you, `If you're there we're going to pick you,' " Greene said. "It feels good to finally be drafted and to finally have that weight off your shoulders and get back to work."

MINNEAPOLIS - There are, in the course of any NBA season, a handful of games that will be won or lost, regardless of what happens on the court. And then there are the games like the 90-86 decision that the Washington Wizards dropped to the Minnesota Timberwolves last night, the ones that should be safely tucked away in the win column, but instead become losses that eat away at you. Armed with a 14-point third-quarter lead, the Wizards (1-3) proceeded to go nearly seven minutes into the fourth period without a basket, hitting just two of 22 field-goal attempts for the quarter, as the Timberwolves stole a game.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Red McCombs' sojourn in Minnesota may be coming to an end. The Minnesota Vikings owner is considering purchase offers from two local ownership groups, two informed sources said late Friday, and a sale could be completed as early as this month. The bidding parties are believed to be Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor and some Minnesota Wild investors led by team chairman Robert Naegele Jr. Should the two parties join their bid, as speculated by one person close to the negotiations, the sale of the Vikings to the combined group would tie together three of Minnesota's four major-league teams - the Vikings, the Timberwolves and the Wild - yielding marketing and ticket sales savings.

WASHINGTON - Watch out, basketball world. Michael Jordan is starting to feel a rhythm. With two straight 40-point-plus performances, Jordan is in mid-career form and is carrying the Washington Wizards with him, as evidenced by last night's 112-102 victory over the Phoenix Suns at MCI Center. Jordan torched the Suns for 41 points - two nights after busting the Cleveland Cavaliers for 40 - and declared that he is in sync and in his best form since coming back after three years of retirement.
