CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Outside the Tennessee women's basketball team's locker room in Knoxville is a sign that simply reads: "Offense fills seats, defense wins games and rebounding wins championships."The statement may be cliched, but the fourth-ranked Lady Vols will hang their fourth national championship banner from the Thompson-Boling Arena rafters in large measure because they proved it true in their 83-65 win over No. 5 Georgia in last night's NCAA title game, in both the literal and the metaphorical.

Right-hander Darren O'Day has been one of the Orioles' most dependable late-inning relief pitchers this season. And even though he has struggled recently, manager Buck Showalter said before Saturday's game that he wasn't worried about how O'Day would rebound after allowing a 10th-inning home run Friday in the Orioles' 8-6 loss to the Kansas City Royals in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series. O'Day received his next chance Saturday in Game 2, entering with two outs in the eighth.

COLLEGE PARK - Dino Gregory Sr. imparted some basketball wisdom when his son and namesake returned to the University of Maryland for his sophomore season after sitting on the bench the final 16 games as a freshman. It came last summer, when the former Mount St. Joseph star spent his mornings running and his father, who played at Long Beach State in the early 1980s and later professionally, rode a bicycle behind him. "I told Dino, 'If you ever feel like not doing the morning run, think about last year,' " the elder Gregory said yesterday.

There is only one hook left for the Orioles to hang their World Series hopes on, and it certainly isn't history. They have dug themselves a hole in the American League Championship Series that no team has ever climbed out of, so they'll have to dig deep into their own team chemistry to pull out this best-of-seven playoff after losing the first two games at home. The Orioles have been known for their resiliency throughout the Buck Showalter era. They have bounced back from all manner of adversity, especially during this unlikely AL East championship season, and they will have to do that over the next several days in Kansas City just to force the series back to Camden Yards.

It begins with an errant shot.Underneath the basket, Monica Logan will rise above the crowd of players to grab the ball. On long-range misses, the number 50 on the back of her jersey expands as her arms reach beyond those of her opponents.Fourteen times a game, the cycle ends with another earned possession by Logan, the nation's leading rebounder and the starting center for the UMBC women's basketball team.From near or from afar, she denies second-shot opportunities for the other team or creates them for UMBC.

Old Mill and North County split in the regular season with each winning at home, the former by 13 back in December and the latter by four on Feb. 10. They met last night in the Anne Arundel County boys basketball title game at South River High in Edgewater and there was one big difference, according to North County coach Mike Francis. And that's why No. 7 Old Mill prevailed, 61-47, to repeat as county champion. The Patriots beat Annapolis, 61-51, in last year's final. "The major difference tonight was that Rodney Stokes came to play," said Francis, whose No. 13 Knights fell to 16-7.

The key to the season opener between Francis Scott Key and Liberty was not so much about who could put points on the board as much as it was about who could control the boards.Both teams lofted air balls and missed layups, but the Lions grabbed 26 more rebounds than the visiting Eagles to escape with a 41-30 win in Eldersburg last night.Despite battling a Francis Scott Key starting five that boasted a two-inch advantage at nearly every position, Liberty outrebounded the Eagles, 45-19, and controlled the tempo of the game.

Peja Stojakovic scored 23 points to lead the Hornets, who were without their top three players in Chris Paul, Tyson Chandler and David West.

Third-ranked Annapolis is so good and deep, with four starters averaging 10 points or more a game, that on a night when they are misfiring, opponents can not allow the Panthers second shots. And it's almost imperative that foes make theirs.A valiant effort by No. 16 Broadneck came up short last night as the host Panthers (13-0 overall, 7-0 league) decisively out-rebounded the Bruins (7-6, 4-3) in the second half and went on to a hard-earned victory, 54-43.After out-rebounding the Panthers, 13-12 in the first half, the Bruins were no match the final 16 minutes with Annapolis holding a 24-10 edge on the boards, 36-23 for the game.

Oyster season opened on a tentative note Wednesday, amid doubts about whether a two-year rebound in the commercial harvest of the Chesapeake Bay's bivalves could continue. There appeared to be fewer watermen working Wednesday in Broad Creek, an Eastern Shore tributary of the Choptank River where more than 120 boats congregated on opening day last year, according to Drew Koslow, the Choptank Riverkeeper. Watermen said the oysters they were pulling up with scissor-like tongs seemed to be smaller, too. "We're not expecting the catch to be as good as it was last year," said P.T. Hambleton, who runs a seafood business in Bozman.  Watermen who'd checked reefs before the season started found oysters smaller than what they'd pulled up last fall, Hambleton said.

COLLEGE PARK - When he's healthy, Braxton Miller is a star, a dynamic and multidimensional threat at quarterback and one of the top offensive weapons in the country. But even without Miller, who suffered a season-ending shoulder injury during preseason practice, Ohio State's offense is still gaining a lot of yards and scoring a lot of points in recent weeks. The play of Miller's replacement, redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett, is one of the primary reasons why. Slowing Barrett down and trying to force the young quarterback into mistakes will be key for Maryland heading into Saturday's game against No. 20 Ohio State at Byrd Stadium.

As much as the Ravens wanted to forget about the 2013 season, the memories - or should we say nightmares? - came rushing back. There was the slow start on offense, a few head-scratching miscues by quarterback Joe Flacco and a total abandonment of a punchless running game. Then, when it appeared that an 80-yard Flacco touchdown pass to Steve Smith would make all of that not matter, their defense reverted back to last year's form with a critical letdown at the worst possible time. Sound familiar?

There weren't any keepers yet, but the fish were definitely biting for Willie Edwards one day last week as he trolled along the edge of the Susquehanna Flats. The 72-year-old fisherman from North East said he'd caught "a lot of little rock," or striped bass. The Flats - a vast, grass-covered shoal at the mouth of the Susquehanna River - are a magnet for fish and the anglers who pursue them. But they're also a symbol to scientists of the Chesapeake Bay's resilience, and of its ability to rebound, if given a chance, from decades of pollution and periodic battering by storms.

CLEVELAND -- Ever since the Orioles reached the postseason two years ago, they've made a point of not panicking when momentum appears to be slipping away. They just try and wait it out. So after running into a buzzsaw of quality pitching for the better part of three games against the Cleveland Indians, the Orioles' offense finally emerged Sunday afternoon in the later innings of a 4-1 victory at Progressive Field. The Orioles had scored just one run in 25 previous innings - and none in the last 17 - during the weekend series before they broke through for two runs in the sixth that ultimately saved them from bring swept for just the second time this year.

COLLEGE PARK - If Gary Williams had foreseen that Travis Garrison and Ekene Ibekwe would have responded this well to a seat on the bench, he might have yanked them from his first five in December. Four nights after they came off the bench at Duke, Maryland's most experienced big men delivered another pair of clutch performances. In Durham, N.C., their free throws sealed what appears to be a season-turning win. Last night against Georgia Tech, Garrison and Ibekwe gave the Terps the inside presence they've been lacking.

LANDOVER -- Pervis Ellison will never come right out and say that he's being vindicated. He's much too unassuming for that kind of braggadocio.But his play in the middle of the Washington lineup is speaking volumes. Last night, he carried the Bullets to a 127-118 double-overtime victory over the Indiana Pacers at the Capital Centre.Ellison scored 27 points and pulled down a career-high 22 rebounds -- 16 after halftime -- to pull the Bullets back into the game.The 6-foot-10 center, in his third year from Louisville, is fewer than 12,000 votes behind the New York Knicks' Patrick Ewing in fan balloting for Eastern Conference centers for next month's All-Star Game in Orlando, Fla.The voting totals and Ellison's statistics (20.4 points and 11.9 rebounds per game)

Yesterday in one sentence: They were draws in the scorebook, but Mexico beat Brazil, 0-0, and South Korea beat Russia, 1-1. What's on tap: Australia vs Netherlands, noon, ESPN; Spain vs. Chile, 3 p.m.; ESPN; Cameroon vs. Croatia, 6 p.m., ESPN. What you'll see: I said yesterday would decide Group A, and it did in the sense that Brazil decided they didn't terribly want to take control of the group. The goalless draw with Mexico leaves both teams on four points, and a draw today in the Croatia-Cameroon game leaves the juicy possibility that all four teams could finish on four points and create the kind of silly chaos only the World Cup can provide.

At a time when the stability of Maryland's men's basketball program has been in question, Robert Carter may have provided the best form of support for embattled coach Mark Turgeon. The 6-foot-8, 247-pound power forward - considered one of the Atlantic Coast Conference's most promising big men before announcing plans to transfer - signed with the Terps on Friday. He then praised Turgeon for his vision and said he wasn't concerned about the fact that five scholarship players transferred from Maryland after the season “I feel like he's doing and they're doing what's best for the program,” Carter said of Turgeon, who just completed his third season at Maryland.
