With a young team and not much depth, McDonogh's girls basketball team can struggle in the most physical games, so it's a good thing their free-throw shooting was on the mark Friday night against St. Frances. The No. 3 Eagles hit 35 free throws to make the difference in a 61-52 win over No. 7 St. Frances that keeps them solidly in second place in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference. The defending conference champion Eagles (9-5) improved to 5-1 in the conference and trail only No. 1 Archbishop Spalding (16-0, 8-0)

Other than a brief flurry by Maryvale in the second quarter, Notre Dame Prep began the defense of its Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference title in commanding fashion, routing the Lions, 56-29, in Towson on Tuesday evening. Senior Hannah Hartman led the way for the Blazers, scoring a game-high 13 points while classmate Mattie Milchling snared nine rebounds and junior point guard Sydney Tommins added seven assists in the quarterfinal victory. NDP jumped out to a 21-5 lead after successive three-pointers by Tommins and senior guard Becky Felmeister near the end of the opening period, although junior guard Caroline Federico answered for Maryvale with a swish from beyond the arc at the buzzer.

This is what a young Maryland team had thirsted for all season: a chance to prove it had arrived against a highly ranked conference rival in front of a jacked-up Comcast Center crowd as eager as the players for a signature win. Feeding off adrenaline from their passionate, red-clad fans, the Terps hung in Saturday against No. 5 North Carolina before buckling under the weight of size and second-chance points in an 83-74 Tar Heels victory. The finish was particularly unsatisfying for the Terps and the announced crowd of 17,950.

Baltimore's free New Year's Eve fireworks are back this year, but with an added wrinkle: The Inner Harbor festivities will be encircled by a metal fence, with access restricted to nine points of entry during much of the celebration. The fence, similar to what was used to enclose September's Grand Prix race, will be put in place Dec. 29, beginning at the waterline east of Rash Field and wrapping around the Inner Harbor before ending on Pratt Street adjacent to Pier 6. No metal detectors or additional security measures will be implemented this year, city officials said.

Away from the basketball court, Severna Park's 6-foot-5 senior center Adam Senholzi will tell you he's a quiet guy for the most part. On the court, that all changes. He loves the challenge of banging with other teams' big men, and he's more than holding his own to help lead the Falcons to a 15-6 record going into yesterday's regular-season finale against Broadneck. In his second season as a starter, Senholzi averages nine points and seven rebounds a game for the Falcons. Senholzi maintains a 3.5 grade-point average and plans to study business administration with hopes of running his own company someday.
