Meeska-mouseka-musketeer, mouse cartoon time now is here.The best thing that can be said about the new Disney production of Dumas' "The Three Musketeers" is, well . . . at least Emilio Estevez isn't in it.OK, so? Charlie Sheen is. It isn't a perfect world.The movie is big, loud, stupid and rambunctious. It's so full of bounding, leaping and sword fighting with a quip in the mouth, a wench on one arm, a sword in one hand, a haunch of beef in the other, and a flagon of wine in still another that it pretty much grinds you into pulp.

Now that signs of the history of Hampstead Hill have been unearthed, historians hope to keep its 200-year-old stories from being forgotten again soon. Advocates for Patterson Park and Baltimore's legacy of the War of 1812 plan new signs and displays for artifacts uncovered in an archaeological dig completed this month, including a musket ball and gunflint dating to 1814 and a belt buckle from the Civil War. They also plan to seek inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places.

Above all, the Children's Theatre of Annapolis production of "The 3 1/2 Musketeers" is cute.The classic tale of those valiant swordsmen in service to the King of France is cleverly spoofed as young Darth Canyon leaves his native Gascony to join Pothole, Armistice and Applesauce in the royal musketeers.Of course, the evil Richelieu and his dragon lady ally, the Countess DeWhimper, do their best to ruin the lives of King Louis and Queen Anne, but with this fearsome semi-foursome on the job, how can they hope to succeed?

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland  sports. How would you assess freshman quarterback Perry Hills' performance in the opener? Jeff Barker : What did the late coach-broadcaster Al McGuire say? "The best thing about freshmen is that they become sophomores. " I like Perry Hills. He seems like a good (and tough) kid, and he'll improve. He had some rough moments in the opener.

INDIANAPOLIS -- They weren't supposed to be so tough, this small and scrappy team from little Xavier. They weren't supposed to start three guards, all 6 feet and smaller, and stay with top-ranked, top-seeded Indiana in the second round of the NCAA Midwest Regional.If the Musketeers weren't intimidated by the taller, stronger Hoosiers, then surely they would be stunned by the crowd of 37,411 at the Hoosier Dome. "I was afraid to look into the stands," joked Xavier coach Pete Gillen. "There's more people up there than in Bulgaria."

It had been 14 years since Xavier had dealt with a losing season, and 16 years since Skip Prosser hadn't been associated with a winner, but the coach and the Musketeers' fans weren't troubled after the little Jesuit school in Cincinnati went 13-15 last season."

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - How good was Xavier last night? Well enough to have All-American David West on the bench for 11 minutes in the first half, and still be able to put between distance between itself and Troy State, which the Musketeers beat, 71-59, in the first round of the NCAA tournament's South Regional at the Gaylord Entertainment Center. Xavier (26-5) now will take on the defending champion Maryland Terrapins, who eked out a 75-73 victory over UNC-Wilmington last night with a three-pointer at the buzzer.

Xavier coach Pete Gillen finds a way to bring out the best in his teams when it counts the most -- at the end of the season.That's why the Musketeers have made six straight NCAA tournament appearances. And that's why they're moving into the second round after an 89-84 victory over No. 11 Nebraska last night in Minneapolis.Was this an upset? The Musketeers were seeded 14th and Cornhuskers third in the Midwest, and it's only the seventh time since the current format started in 1985 that a No. 3 seed lost in the first round.

From the moment the Towson women's basketball team won the opening tip last night, fans at the Towson Center knew a potential upset was brewing. The Tigers didn't disappoint as they defeated Wake Forest, 63-48. The Tigers (2-2) scored the first six points of the game and did not trail the rest of the way. Senior Tierra Jackson led the Tigers with 23 points and 10 rebounds for her second double double of the season. Junior Kelly Robinson had 12 points and five rebounds, and sophomore Alis Freeman chipped in with 11 points, seven rebounds and six assists.

ORLANDO, Fla. - The ball left his hands, spinning flawlessly toward the hoop from three feet beyond half court. This wasn't a prayer. And it wasn't luck. As Xavier guard Dedrick Finn's last-second shot slid through the net to end the first half of yesterday's 89-74 win against second-seeded Mississippi State, the truth behind the Musketeers' recent success became far easier to understand. This is no longer simply good fortune. This is skill. "That shot was going in," Bulldogs coach Rick Stansbury said.

The 19th-century French novelist Alexandre Dumas might be puzzled if he could somehow see the latest movie adaptation of "The Three Musketeers," but any living soul who has seen the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise will recognize that this is an overly familiar 3-D swashbuckler that's as predictable as the swords that periodically threaten to poke your eyes. Alas, Johnny Depp is not one of the musketeers, because the actors they do have don't go far enough to fill the comic vacuum.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Forget the game tapes. Throw away the scouting reports. And there's no need to lecture anyone on Xavier's roster, either. The Musketeers already know how detrimental Mississippi State forward Lawrence Roberts can be. They've been victimized once before. "Oh, yeah," senior Anthony Myles said. "We're familiar with him." How could they forget? In December, Roberts scored 21 points to lead his team to an 82-70 victory against Xavier in Starkville, Miss. Roberts, the Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, didn't just offer a preview of his skills.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - This time, the Maryland Terrapins required no last-second miracle, no buzzer-beating shot to continue their survival in the single-elimination pressure cooker known as the NCAA men's basketball tournament. In yesterday's South Regional second round at the Gaylord Entertainment Center, sixth-seeded Maryland flexed its muscle with maturity and self-assurance before 17,484 witnesses. The Xavier Musketeers, with their gaudy record, All-America power forward and No. 3 seed, ultimately had no answer.

The seventh-seeded Musketeers (26-10) play top-seeded Duke (30-5) today at the Georgia Dome, with the victor advancing to the Final Four. Xavier is in the Elite Eight for the first time. Duke, a three-time NCAA champion, advanced for the 17th time and has made 13 Final Four appearances.
