POPHAM BEACH, Maine -- The fates of the three earliest American colonies can be told by their resupply ships. There was the ship that didn't arrive, the ship that arrived in the nick of time and the ship that left too late and arrived too early. The ship that didn't show was the one that was supposed to replenish the first colony, the one Sir Walter Ralegh was trying to establish on the North Carolina coast in 1587. The supply ship was to come the next year, but 1588 turned out to be the year of the Spanish Armada and Queen Elizabeth I refused to divert any ships from anti-armada duties.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- It's the intrastate rivalry that isn't.When top-seeded Loyola plays No. 5 Maryland at noon today, it will mark only the second meeting in nearly four decades. The lone game in that 39-year period between the schools, which sit just 32 miles apart, occurred in 1989, when the Greyhounds downed the Terrapins, 10-8.It marked Loyola's first win in the 19-game history of the series, ending an 18-game skid that spanned 1940 to '59. However, the Greyhounds aren't the ones ducking the matchup.
