Colgate coach Mike Murphy sees a lot of similarities when he looks at Loyola Maryland and the Raiders' last opponent, Cornell, especially in their respective ability to pounce on transition opportunities and turn them into goals. He said his team's ability to understand and account for that will go a long way to determining the outcome against the Greyhounds on Saturday in Hamilton, N.Y. "I think as you look at this team you have to be great in transition," Murphy said. "They are lethal six-on-six on offense but may be one of best transition teams with [midfielder]

Now that "Patriot Games" is packing crowds into theaters, Mace Neufeld can afford a look back at how the high-profile project came together -- and almost didn't. Mr. Neufeld and partner Robert Rehme produced the Harrison Ford thriller based on Tom Clancy's tome, and he's been involved on every level of the project.The picture made news before the cameras even started rolling, when Alec Baldwin -- CIA analyst Jack Ryan in "The Hunt for Red October" -- ankled the sequel because of a schedule conflict (he was set to star with Jessica Lange in the Broadway revival of "A Streetcar Named Desire")

Not only was Sunday's 14-7 victory over No. 6 Duke critical for boosting Loyola Maryland's resume for an at-large berth in the NCAA tournament if it doesn't capture the Patriot League automatic qualifier, it was another piece of evidence suggesting that the team is moving in the right direction. But as No. 3 Loyola (5-1) is getting praised roundly and moving into the top three in many polls, coach Charley Toomey said he is not concerned about the players' mental state after the emotionally charged outcome against the reigning national champion Blue Devils.

The filming of Tom Clancy's novel "Patriot Games" has not been completed, but already the first review is in -- from the author himself, no less, and what he thinks can't make Paramount Pictures very happy. In a highly unusual move, Mr. Clancy says he fears the movie will be so bad, and so different from his book, that he wants the studio to remove his name from the production."I sold them this product in good faith. This request is not being done on the spur of the moment. I told them this was a possibility in late August -- the product they are turning out is a disaster," said Mr. Clancy, who is one of the top-selling authors in the world.

Tom Clancy, the Baltimore-born author whose novels "The Hunt for Red October" and "Patriot Games" subsequently inspired blockbuster movies and action-packed video games, died Tuesday after a brief illness at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. He was 66. His lawyer, Thompson "Topper" Webb, of the Baltimore law firm of Miles & Stockbridge, confirmed his death. "When he published 'The Hunt for Red October' he redefined and expanded the genre and as a consequence of that, a lot of people were able to publish such books who had previously been unable to do so," said Stephen C. Hunter, an author and former Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic for The Washington Post.

Tom Clancy, the Baltimore author who died this week at age 66, will be remembered as the king of the techno-thriller novel . But he also was a leading example of a modern day phenomenon: the author whose works spawn a hugely profitable, multi-media franchise. Clancy's books sparked Hollywood blockbusters such as "The Hunt for Red October," "Patriot Games" and “Clear and Present Danger.” They also were turned into video games such as "Ghost Recon" and the "Splinter Cell" series.

SATURDAY NIGHT'S Shock Trauma Gala was a fitting tribute to one of Maryland's most valuable institutions.

The money is earmarked for a critical care transport van which was sitting outside the center and should be ready to serve Marylanders this summer.The Towson Center looked fabulous, thanks to the vivid imagination of the P.W. Feats company and Ami Taubenfeld, who wore two hats for the gala -- head of operations and catering by her company, Great Occasions.

Loyola Maryland's first-ever game in the Patriot League featured a smattering of fans inside, an abundance of snowflakes outside and an overwhelming showing of offensive futility. Still, despite putting themselves in a seemingly insurmountable hole against Navy, the host Greyhounds rallied behind standout guard Dylon Cormier (Cardinal Gibbons), who scored six of his game-high 20 points in overtime, as Loyola survived for a 63-57 win before an announced 536 at Reitz Arena. After failing to make a field goal at one point for a span of 18:34 - nearly an entire half's worth of play - Loyola rallied from a 13-point deficit with 5:16 left in regulation by shooting 12-for-22 from the field and forcing 16 turnovers in the second half.

The Baltimore Sun's experts make their predictions for the Week 16 game between the Ravens and New England Patriots at M&T Bank Stadium. Monique Jones Patriots 28, Ravens 20 The Ravens have had to scrape by their previous two opponents. If the Ravens continue to struggle scoring touchdowns, they're going to have a hard time getting by the Patriots. Mike Preston Ravens 21, Patriots 17 Tom Brady always gives the Patriots something of an edge, but New England has no defense, especially against the run. If the Ravens can get Ray Rice going, they should be able to grind the Patriots down.

WASHINGTON - While key Democrats in Congress such as Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle and Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Robert C. Byrd chip cautiously at the edges of President Bush's pursuit of the war on terrorism, an obscure back-bencher in the House is making a frontal attack. Because Democratic Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich of Ohio is not in a leadership position in his party or in the House, his protest of what he sees as an unauthorized and unwarranted extension of aims in Mr. Bush's war policy constitutes a trickle of dissent in Congress and in the country so far. But a speech that the 55-year-old congressman and former mayor of Cleveland gave a couple of weeks ago to the liberal Americans for Democratic Action chapter in Los Angeles has triggered thousands of e-mails to him in support of challenging the Bush policy.
