Men's college basketball Missouri junior guard English will test NBA waters Missouri junior Kim English (Randallstown) announced Monday through a school spokesman that he plans to declare for the NBA draft but will not hire an agent, giving him extra time to change his mind. English, a 6-foot-6 shooting guard, led the Tigers in scoring as a sophomore, but his 14-point average in 2009-10 fell by four points this season. English rejected assertions that the draft announcement was related to Missouri's coaching uncertainty.

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Three nights after getting slammed by a national championship contender in the Kansas Jayhawks, Coppin State came to Missouri last night looking for its first victory on its weeklong trip through the Big Eight, and the Eagles felt pretty good about their chances.After all, the Eagles came within a last-second shot of upsetting Missouri last year, when Missouri rolled through the Big Eight unbeaten before losing in the West Regional final of the NCAA tournament. What's more, four starters were gone from that team, along with Big Eight Freshman of the Year Kelly Thames, lost for the season to a knee injury.

ST. LOUIS -- Only twice in the last century, when Missouri went for William Jennings Bryan for president in 1900 and for Adlai E. Stevenson in 1956, have the voters of the state failed to be with the winner. Whether this record connotes a special political wisdom on their part, Missouri's voters have been getting attention from this fall's presidential candidates beyond what might have been expected for a state that has only 11 electoral votes. But the tightness of the race, and expectations that the result will be close, have lured Al Gore and George W. Bush to several smaller states that in other years have seen little of the presidential candidates in the home stretch of the contest for the White House.

Blast veteran forward Adauto Neto showed similar form Friday night against the visiting Missouri Comets. In the second quarter, he tied the game with a side-winding, half-volley from deep in the right corner that found the top of the net. With the game still tied in the third quarter and the Blast on a power play, Neto's perfectly timed backheel pass in tight quarters found a streaking Lucio Gonzaga, who scored to give the home team its first lead.

Four men from Florida were arrested on conspiracy theft charges this week in Anne Arundel County after a tip from a victim in Laurel led police to a hotel in Bowie - where evidence was uncovered that linked the men to thefts in multiple other states as well, Anne Arundel County Police said Thursday. Detectives in the county said the men appear to have been targeting vehicles parked at daycare centers and gyms. They are now reaching out to law enforcement agencies in other jurisdictions as they try to determine how widespread the operation was, said Justin Mulcahy, a department spokesman.
