There was only one thing wrong with the resolution of the Pete Pompey affair: It didn't make sense. None of it.As reported in The Sun on Saturday, Pompey funneled some $51,000 of Dunbar's money into an unauthorized bank account he had set up when he was the athletic director and head basketball and football coach, then used some of the money on a series of questionable and undocumented expenditures, some blatantly personal as his electric bill.He may have endangered the college eligibility of some of his former basketball players by paying for their SAT and ACT tests, for which hardship waivers are easily available.

I eat, sleep and dream basketball. -Sam Cassell, assistant coach, Washington Wizards He's not kidding. As a kid growing up in the 1980s, Cassell would shoot hoops all day with his pals on East Baltimore's playgrounds, then grab a bite "and brag about what we'd just done to each other." At night, Cassell would curl up in his room on North Montford Street, a ball alongside his bed. Oh, the dreams that lad had. "I was always the point guard for either the Philadelphia 76ers or the New York Knicks," he said.

Making predictions about what will happen in high school sports 30 years down the road is admittedly useless. There are myriad things that can occur, from changes in educational policy and philosophy to alterations on the field, to the point where guessing what will happen 30 days from now is like spitting in the wind. Still, let's hope that 30 years from now, Dante Jones is still working the Edmondson sideline as energetically as he did Saturday in the Red Storm's 37-9 Class 2A state football championship win over McDonough.

His nickname is "Shaky," but Antione Smithson has been nothing but steady so far for this year's Fredrick Douglass football team. The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder showed as much during an interdivisional, 14-6 loss to Baltimore City rival City College on Sept. 23. That's when Smithson matched up against the Knights' Sheldon Bell in a showdown of two of the city's premier wide receivers. "I had a really hard practice that week to prepare for him," said Smithson, who had 27 receptions for 874 yards and nine touchdowns last season.
