They pushed the Baltimore Ravens downfield. They stuffed the ball down their throats. They scored two touchdowns on them. They finally put points on the board in the second half. Yes, there were some moral victories claimed by the Browns in loud M&T Bank Stadium on an overcast Sunday. But Ray Lewis, the linebacker and spiritual leader of the Ravens' defense, broke down the game succinctly when he stated, "There's one thing that matters in this business, and that's wins and losses.

Quarterback F Steve McNair looked tired and old. He couldn't hold onto the football when he should have tucked it away. He threw passes into the dirt and often threw behind receivers. McNair had three turnovers, and they played a major part in the Ravens' loss. Offensive line F This group looked tired and old, too. Left tackle Jonathan Ogden looked like a player who hasn't played in two months. Center Mike Flynn allowed too much penetration and right tackle Adam Terry allowed too much pressure off the perimeter.

INDIANAPOLIS -- You would think the films of last year's Duke and Nevada-Las Vegas NCAA championship game would never have seen the light of day in Durham, N.C.To the contrary, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski used them as the blueprint for Saturday's stunning 79-77 upset of UNLV that propelled the Blue Devils into tonight's championship game against Kansas.Krzyzewski said he began watching film of the 103-73 massacre of Duke in Denver and discovered something amazing.Sure, the Runnin' Rebels were better than Duke, but they weren't 30 points better.

Bucknell University, beset by some of the problems that have hurt the University of Maryland Baltimore County, put away the Retrievers in the last 10 minutes at the UMBC Fieldhouse last night, winding up with a 79-64 victory.It was the eighth straight loss for the Retrievers (1-9).This one was not pretty for either team, although both played reasonably tough defense. Neither shot the ball well, but Bucknell, sparked by Bill Courtney and Pat King, had a 52-41 rebound margin.UMBC, down by as many as 10 points, got within 53-51 on a layup by Spencer Ferguson with 10 minutes left, but the Bison, with five different players contributing, went on a 10-2 run, and the gap did not dip below eight the rest of the way.Bucknell (7-3)

Maybe it was the fact that it was a home game. Maybe it was the fact that it was the season finale. Maybe it was the fact that it was Ted Marchibroda's last game.Whatever it was, the Ravens didn't mail it in yesterday the way they did in Chicago last week.They played hard enough to beat the Detroit Lions, 19-10, in a game that rang down the curtain on the Marchibroda era.Guard Jeff Blackshear, who said a week ago that he knew the Ravens didn't have the right attitude in Chicago, said they came to play against the Lions.

"Toy Story 3" is a prison break movie — and prison break movies have always juggled laughs and jolts. A Newsweek writer has raised the question of whether "Toy Story 3" is too frightful for small children. But children have always loved to be scared, whether by reading fairy tales or watching "The Wizard of Oz." As screenwriter Michael Arndt says, "There's nothing wrong with strong emotions — you go to a film to feel strong emotions. And the only time that doesn't work is if the emotions are cheaply earned or are made gratuitously.

HOUSTON - Haloti Ngata made his presence felt when he intercepted a pass in the end zone, the first big defensive stop for the Ravens in yesterday's 41-13 rout of the Houston Texans. "That's the play everybody will talk about, but that wasn't his best play," coach John Harbaugh said. It would be hard to choose which one was. Ngata had the best overall game of any Raven yesterday, contributing on defense, offense and special teams. On defense, he had two hits on quarterback Sage Rosenfels (one of which led to an interception by Ray Lewis)

Long Reach senior forward Obi Ukwuoma has thrived in his role as the Lightning's team leader and go-to player, averaging 17 points and 10 rebounds this season. Ukwuoma, 6 feet 4, was primed for the responsibility. During his sophomore year, he was called up to the varsity before the team's state championship playoff run, getting experience in what it takes to win a title. And last season, when senior standout Michael Bowden went down with an early injury, Ukwuoma stepped up to take a lead role and earn first-team all-county honors.

An 0-2 start is not what Joppatowne boys soccer coach Mike Zipay had in mind when he opted to have his youthful Mariners play in an offensive-minded style this season. So he decided to change direction and make defense a focal point of his team. "I moved the better players back to defense," Zipay said. "And we were a better team." Becoming a better team translated into a 4-4-2 record after the 0-2 start. The leading scorer for the Mariners was senior forward Matt Crawford, who had nine goals and five assists after making first-team All-Harford County last season.

DALLAS -- As he approached Michigan center Juwan Howard after the final buzzer, Keith Booth stopped in his tracks and assumed a boxer's stance. In a moment Maryland's freshman forward was smiling, reaching out to embrace Howard after banging against him and his Michigan teammates all night.There was no time for sulking, not even in light of Maryland's 78-71 loss to Michigan last night that knocked the Terrapins out of the NCAA tournament. Booth knew he had put out his all, scoring a team-high 17 points in 29 minutes before fouling out."

WASHINGTON -- Suddenly, it doesn't seem to matter who the Washington Wizards are playing, or where. Suddenly, it doesn't seem to matter if the Wizards fall behind, or when. It doesn't even matter who the Wizards have on the floor, though it sometimes matters who the opposition is missing. Taking advantage of Allen Iverson's absence and Willie Green's inexperience down the stretch, the Wizards came from behind in the fourth quarter to beat the Philadelphia 76ers, 117-107, at MCI Center last night.
