I started when I moved to the East Coast. I used to live in California and I came here in my sixth-grade year. I never picked up a ball when I was in California. Then I played for my middle school team [in Virginia]. Were you good at it to start? Yeah. It was kind of like it just came naturally to me. My dad played basketball in his years in high school, so I guess it was just natural. What was the transition like to Lansdowne's team? Coming to Lansdowne, I felt more comfortable here than I did at North County.

It was a September day in 2007 and Seth Allen was riding his bicycle around his suburban Virginia neighborhood the same way he now plays basketball for Maryland - with speed and flair, but also a hint of youthful recklessness. Allen wasn't holding on to the 10-speed's handlebars when he hit a rough patch of pavement and lost control, tumbling off the bike and shattering his left elbow in so many places that doctors had to insert two plates and 24 screws to stabilize the joint. Five and a half years later, the screws and plates remain in the freshman guard's shooting elbow along with the memory of surgeries, painkillers and months of rehabilitation during which his athletic future was clouded.

Pennsylvania@Drexel 10 a.m. [ESPN] I look at it this way: If these two teams are going to play basketball in the middle of the morning, the least you can do is watch. Plus, given that their campuses are next to each other, maybe parking spaces are on the line.

Throughout her brilliant, but controversial basketball career, Tammy Brown has shown the ability to switch directions almost as quickly as she can switch hands on the dribble.In the latest switch, Brown, an All-Metro selection and the 1990 Anne Arundel County Player of the Year at Broadneck High, has come full circle, signing a letter of intent to play at Maryland next season two years after leaving there."I always wanted to play in the ACC [Atlantic Coast Conference].

BOSTON -- Boston Celtics captain Reggie Lewis is expected to undergo surgery, possibly this weekend, to have an implantable defibrillating device placed under the muscles of his abdomen, raising the possibility that he may play basketball again, The Boston Globe learned last night.Until last night, medical sources generally had assumed that Lewis would not play basketball again because of the serious heart arrhythmia that caused him to collapse and nearly lose consciousness during a playoff game April 29.But implantation of the defibrillator, which can quickly restore an erratic heart rhythm to normal, "raises the hope that he can play again," said one source close to the case.

The arrival of towering German center Boris Beck at Broadneck this season predictably raised eyebrows in Anne Arundel County, where athletic transfers long have been a sore point.Perhaps just as predictable, however, is that Beck -- a Fullbright exchange student and no basketball import -- has not been a major factor for the Bruins.Beck, at 7 feet 2 the tallest county player ever, has found the transition to American basketball difficult."The adjustment for Boris has been in understanding just how intense the game is in the U.S.," said Bruins coach Ken Kazmarek.

Heat impressive Shandel Richardson Sun Sentinel The Knicks are the league's only unbeaten team. But the team playing the best is the Heat. It sounds silly to say when the Knicks spanked the Heat last week, but no team has been more impressive than Miami. The Heat are leading the league in scoring, which is trouble for the rest of the NBA. Erik Spoelstra will have his team returning to its defensive identity soon as Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis adjust. Now, the league's best defensive team has an offense that has proved difficult to defend.

As Terrell Suggs attempts to come back after successful surgery to repair his partially torn right Achilles tendon, there remains scrutiny over how the Ravens' outside linebacker sustained the injury in the first place. Two days after Suggs told my colleague Mike Preston that he is "going to shock a lot of people" with a healthy return from the injury sometime during the regular season, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported again that Suggs was injured in late April while playing basketball in Arizona, something Suggs had strongly denied to us . Schefter had two employees of the gym in Arizona saying on the record that Suggs was injured playing in a tournament.

Ravens offensive tackle Michael Oher is plenty busy with the football season, so he hasn't really gotten a chance to see his adoptive brother, Sean Tuohy Jr., play basketball much. But that figures to change soon. Tuohy, a senior Briarcrest Christian School, has committed orally to play basketball at Loyola University beginning next season. “It's big," Oher said. "I get to go to most of the home games, just to see him play. I didn't get a chance to watch him in high school much so I get a chance to watch him a lot more, especially if he's coming up here to play.

Moviegoers who saw Ravens offensive tackle Michael Oher's saga depicted in the "The Blind Side" recall Sean Tuohy Jr. as the future football star's rambunctious little brother who interrogated big-time college coaches when they came to the family's Memphis, Tenn., home on recruiting trips. Tuohy is now a senior at the same private high school where Oher was discovered, and a pretty good basketball player - good enough to earn a scholarship at Loyola University, where Tuohy has committed orally to play beginning next season.

There was a time, many years ago, when Chris Carr did not particularly care if his football career ended. He doesn't mind talking about it. Carr finds it fascinating, in fact, to contemplate the role that fate played in steering him toward the present. You can make a pretty convincing case that he's been the Ravens best cornerback this season, and that he's exceeded everyone's expectations this year — except his own — with how consistently he's played. But getting here required a bit of random luck both the Ravens and Carr can be thankful for. Carr was a high school senior in Reno, Nevada, when it happened.
