The beginning of Kareem Storey 's college basketball career was spent at a high-major program in the midst of a rebuilding project. With that experience in mind, the former Towson Catholic point guard focused on one factor in particular when he got a second chance at the recruiting process. “Historically, Morehead [State] is known for making the [NCAA] tournament,” said Storey, who signed with the Eagles last week. “There's nothing like tournament play. That basically was what I based my decision off of - being successful, winning games and going for the best opportunity I had to accomplish those goals.” In Storey, Morehead State landed one of the most coveted junior college point guards in the country.

COLLEGE PARK - These were just the sorts of games that Maryland often struggled to put away last season - nonconference contests against smaller teams that couldn't seem to hold the Terps' interest until the final moments. Maryland missed 12 of its first 17 shots against Morehead State on Monday night - a beginning that seemed to foreshadow another uneven effort. But the Terps - propelled by the first Comcast Center points from transfer Dez Wells - seemed to come to life after that, using their superior size and depth to record a 67-45 victory in their home opener as part of the Barclays Center Classic.

MARBURY -- Dan Morehead, a three-year pro angler from Paducah, Ky., stepped to the scales at the $273,000 Bassmasters Maryland Top 100 Pro-Am yesterday knowing he had a good chance to win his first major bass tournament.What he didn't realize was that he won by going where few fishermen had gone before -- to the head of Broad Creek, a shallow bay on the Maryland shore of the Potomac River just upriver from Fort Washington."I guessed I had found something," said Morehead, who completed the three-day tournament with 54 pounds, 11 ounces and a winning margin of more than 6 pounds.

A tip-in by Morehead State's Chad McKnight with 0.7 of a second left in overtime gave the Eagles a 66-65 win over Mount St. Mary's in the opening game of the Columbia Classic in New York last night. The Mount held a five-point lead in overtime only to see Morehead State score the final six points of the game. It was the season opener for both teams. The Mount scored the first five points in the extra period, capped by a Charles Cook (Bishop McNamara) three-pointer with 2:45 left. The Mount, however, would not score again as Morehead State rallied for the win. Johns Hopkins 86, Frostburg State 81: Danny Nawrocki, Frank Mason and Eric Toback (Mount Hebron)

Twelve years have passed since Harmans resident Richard Morehead went to the county health department with a glass of his bright-green well water.Tonight the EPA is having a public hearing on its plan to keep the contamination from spreading.So far, the old 69-foot Morehead well -- which was found to contain arsenic, chrome and copper from the wood processing plant across the street --and a few nearby test wells are the only ones in the area to show contamination. The Environmental Protection Agency lists 17 domestic wells, 13 public supply wells, five commercial wells and one institutional well -- most of them deeper than Morehead's -- within three miles of the Mid-Atlantic Wood Preservers plant.

Sean Woods hit a shot that was nearly one of the biggest in Kentucky basketball history, a high-arching bank off the backboard on a drive down the lane in the waning seconds to put the Wildcats ahead against defending national champion Duke in the 1992 East Regional final. Nearly, because after Mike Krzyzewski called a timeout at the Spectrum in Philadelphia, Christian Laettner hit what might be the single-most replayed shot in NCAA tournament history, an 18-foot turnaround that lifted the Blue Devils to the Final Four and ultimately to a second straight NCAA title.

The box score for Maryland's opening-game loss to Kentucky contained one gaudy, improbable number - 28. "I've never seen anything like it," Wildcats coach John Calipari said of the 28 offensive rebounds - 19 in the first half - the Terps collected in losing, 72-69, at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. Maryland (0-1) - which hosts Morehead State (1-0) on Monday night - shot 33 percent in the Kentucky game Friday night and were just 3-for-19 on 3-pointers. "Our shot selection was poor," coach Mark Turgeon said.

For the first time in about a month-and-a-half, Brent Arrington got a good night's sleep. Since late May, Arrington has patiently waited for Mississippi Valley State to release him from his scholarship. His request was repeatedly denied, making what should have been a relaxing summer break an exceedingly stressful time for the Lansdowne grad. But last Friday, after his father spoke with someone from the NCAA and pleaded Arrington's case, the 6-foot-2, 182-pound guard was released from his scholarship.

Graduation was fast approaching for Annapolis' Jourdan Stickler , but the 6-foot-4, 190-pound shooting guard entered this week with his post-high school plans completely up in the air. Several Division I programs expressed interest in Stickler during his first-team All-Metro senior season with the Panthers, but the wait for scholarship offers continued through the spring. “I don't know if surprised would be the right word, but definitely disappointed,” Stickler said about his lack of offers.

The first real day of the NCAA tournament hasn't disappointed. We've seen a few close games, a couple of buzzer-beaters and one Cinderella step forward with a big upset. And I got paid to watch it all while eating chicken wings at Hightopps, so today has been a blast (sorry if you were stuck in a cubicle). The Baltimore Sun's Tournament Tweetup today out at Hightopps was a lot of fun even though most of the folks on hand were there celebrating St. Patrick's Day. One lucky raffle winner named Greg won Orioles tickets -- he's the one in the middle of this photo -- and my buddy Ken Weinman from 105.7 The Fan came out to watch the tournament with us. Former Ravens linebacker Brad Jackson and former Towson football coach Gordy Combs were also there randomly watching hoops.
