Are you from here? That freshly painted mural at The Dome at the Madison Square Recreation Center, it wants to know, and it wants to know in big block letters. Everyone wants to know, it seems. After all, it is an advertising slogan for Under Armour, the Locust Point-based apparel company that teamed up with the NBA to renovate The Dome, a facility on East Biddle Street that carries those words on its wall, on the baselines and on the shirts of about 100 kids that were seated on and around the court Monday.

The whole basketball world knows about Muggsy Bogues now, but Baltimore knew about him first. From the time he was a diminutive youngster growing up on Orleans Street in East Baltimore, anybody who knew anything about basketball could see he was unique.As a mere lad living in the Lafayette Court housing project, he and best friend Reggie Williams engaged in memorable battles in rec ball against a Cecil Court team that featured David Wingate and Reggie Lewis. The four would be reunited on the Dunbar High School teams of the early 1980s that won 59 games in a row, then would become stars in college.

Longtime followers of Dunbar boys basketball still carry the memories of some of the storied program's greatest moments. There was the 1982-83 team that won a mythical national championship and is one of the best high school teams to play in Baltimore, if not the country. Some Poets fans go all the way back to the 1973 Dunbar-DeMatha game at the Baltimore Civic Center that demonstrated just how good basketball was in the city. Three players who went through Dunbar, including former Raven Tommy Polley, believe those memories should be preserved and presented to an audience beyond Baltimore.

WASHINGTON -- Muggsy Bogues stole a glance at the sheet of paper taped to the table adjacent to the bench to catch the names of the officials working the Charlotte Sting's recent game against the Washington Mystics. Good thing, too, because it's considered bad form for the head coach to harass referees without knowing their names. "Come on, Lisa," cried Bogues, yelling at WNBA referee Lisa Mattingly. "Come on, now. [Mystics guard Nikki] Teasley can't dribble the ball like that." Bogues got that call as Teasley was called for a double dribble midway through the first quarter of the game at Verizon Center, and he clapped his hands vigorously.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- As often happens with Muggsy Bogues, the play evolved in a flash. First, he stripped Denver Nuggets guard Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf of the ball. As Abdul-Rauf tried to chase him down and block his layup, Bogues flipped an over-the-shoulder pass to teammate Rafael Addison for a dunk.The sellout crowd at the Charlotte Coliseum erupted."Just like old times, Muggsy," one courtside fan said above the din."You're baaacckk," yelled another.Bogues smiled, not only at the fans who were cheering this sequence in Friday night's victory over the Nuggets, but also at the irony of his own situation.

Stacy Hollander has grown a bit tired of hearing the same old question: What's a 4-foot-11 girl like you doing in a game like basketball? "People are all the time saying to me, `You play basketball?' I'm like, `Yeah, what's your point?' " The Beth Tfiloh point guard doesn't have much more to say about it. She prefers to let her game do the talking. "When people are like, `Oh, it's a short girl,' it makes me play even harder," said Hollander. "They'd think, `I can take this short, little girl,' and I'd drive right past them or I'd take a shot in their face.

WASHINGTON -- Fordham guard Bevon Robin meant no disrespect. That's because he had already heard about the reputation of the George Washington players, about how this smallish point guard was somehow dominating the Atlantic 10 Conference.Still, there's something about first impressions. And the first time Robin faced George Washington and saw Shawnta Rogers -- all 5 feet 4 of him -- walking onto the court for the opening tip-off, his eyes got wide and there were two words that immediately entered his mind.

No matter how often he returns to Baltimore, Muggsy Bogues continues to feel chills whenever he visits the place where he was born and raised."[I've got] the jitterbugs," said the 5-foot-3 Charlotte Hornets point guard. "I've still got some butterflies in my stomach. This city just has some great memories for me."Those memories helped persuade Bogues, who was named the Hornets' Most Valuable Player last season, to return to his alma ++ mater, Dunbar High School, and join Baltimore Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke yesterday to announce the Muggsy Bogues All-Star Classic Sept.
