With Coppin State's men's basketball team set to open its first official practice Monday afternoon under new coach Michael Grant, some of the Eagles had trouble getting a full night of sleep Sunday.

"I was pretty anxious for the first day just because it's going to be fun and it's going to be a new system," he said.

COLLEGE PARK - As a disappointing season gave way to a tumultuous offseason earlier this year, Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon waited anxiously for the start of preseason practice.

Maryland, which finished 17-15 in its Atlantic Coast Conference farewell and failed for the fourth straight year to make the NCAA tournament, opens the 2014-15 season Nov. 14 against Wagner.

ST. LOUIS - The Ravens' starting offense and defense in the preseason finale against the St. Louis Rams on Thursday looked nothing like the units that will be on the field next week in the regular-season opener against the Denver Broncos. As head coach John Harbaugh hinted at in the days leading up to the game, the Ravens held out all their starters from the Thursday night's game, many of them not even making the trip to St. Louis. On offense, quarterback Joe Flacco, running backs Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce, fullback Vonta Leach, wide receivers Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones and Brandon Stokley, tight end Ed Dickson, left tackle Bryant McKinnie, left guard Kelechi Osemele, center Gino Gradkowski, right guard Michael Oher and right tackle Marshal Yanda did not play.

Wes Unseld has never been one to seek the spotlight. Yet there he was on Thursday, surrounded by media, NBA players past and present and several hundred youngsters who packed the gym at the Unseld School in West Baltimore for the promotion of a Washington Wizards preseason basketball game to be played in Baltimore on Oct. 20. "It's a big treat for the kids here to see some of the old [Baltimore] Bullets and the new Wizards," said Unseld, 67, a Hall of Fame center who played 13 years for the franchise in both cities.

Just a few months removed from being one of the Ravens' top pass catchers, second-year receiver Marlon Brown says he feels good about his role in the offense coming out of the preseason. “I feel like it's going pretty well,” Brown said. “When they called my number, I made a play. That's pretty much the mindset I have for this offense. I want to go in and contribute, whether it's blocking or catching the ball.” Brown's 2013 season was one of the bright spots for the Ravens' offense.

Weeks after falling awkwardly against the Dallas Cowboys and coughing up blood, Ravens starting cornerback Jimmy Smith proclaimed that he's made a full recovery. Smith suffered a chest contusion against the Cowboys and also had lung issues, but has been practicing since last week and says he's on track to play Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals at M&T Bank Stadium. Smith said he won't need any extra padding to protect his chest. "I'm absolutely fine," said Smith, who's not listed on the first injury report released Wednesday.

1. McDonogh Coach: Brandon Quaranta Last season: 21-0-1, ranked No. 1 Postseason: MIAA A Conference champion Outlook: The Eagles are loaded and among the nation's elite high school programs. McDonogh is the favorite to repeat as champion with 12 returning players, including seven starters and several All-America candidates. 2. Severna Park Coach: Ryan Parisi Last season: 17-0-2, No. 3 Postseason: Class 4A state champion Outlook: The Falcons will be formidable again with the return of Daniel Kwon and Miseker Wingate.

That's good news for Centennial and very bad news for just about everyone else. 2. Hereford Last season: Ranked No. 2 Postseason: Class 2A state champion Outlook: Much like Centennial, the Bulls bring back much of their championship team from a year ago, though they did lose a few more seniors than the Eagles and will need others to step up. 3. South River Last season: Ranked No. 3 Postseason: Third in Class 4A state meet Outlook: The Seahawks lost top runner Carly Bunting, and that will hurt.

NEW ORLEANS - Inside the Ravens' locker room late Thursday night, wide receiver Kamar Aiken broke into a smile as he reflected on how to handle the anxiety of waiting to learn whether he has made the team. With Saturday's 4 p.m. deadline for the 53-man roster closing in on the Ravens, Aiken and his fellow wide receivers likely made one decision even more difficult with their performances in the team's preseason finale, a 22-13 victory over the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Over the last two weeks, the Ravens' starters have remained in preseason form. The first-team offense has gotten in the end zone once on seven total drives. The first-team defense has barely touched the opposing quarterback while the secondary has allowed a receiver to eclipse the 100-yard plateau in consecutive weeks. With the starters expected to play sparingly - if at all - in next week's preseason finale against the St. Louis Ramsat the Edward Jones Dome, the Ravens' Thursday night matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars at M&T Bank Stadium is essentially their last chance to build some momentum heading into the Sept.

Joe Flacco will have an abbreviated window to orchestrate the Ravens' offense Thursday night at the Georgia Dome. That's because coach John Harbaugh has no plans to deviate from his traditional blueprint for the opening preseason game. The starters will only make a brief appearance against the Atlanta Falcons. "Hopefully, my expectations will be we get the ball, whether it's to open the game or once they turn the ball over on downs or whatever happens and we go down and score a touchdown," Flacco said.
