Baltimore City league champion Edmondson was well aware the Class 2A North region was going to be a game-by-game grind, and the churning started immediately in Tuesday's first-round game against Douglass. The No. 3 Red Storm leaned on its aggressive defense, a fine all-around performance from senior forward Stanton Kidd and a fourth-quarter spark from senior guard Jerry Lovelocke to advance with a 56-44 quarterfinal win over the visiting No. 14 Ducks. Edmondson (18-2) will meet Digital Harbor, an 80-49 winner over Overlea, in Thursday's semifinal, set for 5 p.m. as part of a doubleheader at Coppin State.

The City boys basketball team will return to the University of Maryland's Comcast Center this week in a bid to successfully defend its Class 2A state title, starting with a semifinal game Friday. The hardest part of the task might have already been accomplished. The Class 2A North was easily the most difficult region in the state, and City survived as much and won, getting past Baltimore City champion Edmondson, 59-58, on Saturday at City. The No. 5 Knights (21-2) overcame an early 11-1 deficit and then a scare in the final seconds when the No. 3 Red Storm (19-3)

Colgate coach Mike Murphy sees a lot of similarities when he looks at Loyola Maryland and the Raiders' last opponent, Cornell, especially in their respective ability to pounce on transition opportunities and turn them into goals. He said his team's ability to understand and account for that will go a long way to determining the outcome against the Greyhounds on Saturday in Hamilton, N.Y. "I think as you look at this team you have to be great in transition," Murphy said. "They are lethal six-on-six on offense but may be one of best transition teams with [midfielder]

The only thing more inevitable than Maryland meeting St. John's in the NCAA tournament is the Terps advancing at Ludwig Field. Goals by freshman Jeremy Hall and sophomore Graham Zusi carried the defending national champions last night to a 2-0 win over the Red Storm, which was fortunate to keep it that close. No. 7 Maryland (16-4-1) looked extremely sharp, as it acknowledged the benefits of 12 days' rest and the inspiration of a Tuesday viewing of a video of past Terps' highlights. "We looked like a fresh, energetic team," coach Sasho Cirovski said of what he considered the crispest performance by his attack since September.

Edmondson coach Darnell Dantzler starts and ends his team's practices with free-throw drills. The Red Storm also regularly works on how to handle a variety of pressure situations. All of that practice paid off Friday night, as No. 10 Edmondson made nine straight free throws in the final 80 seconds to hold off host Patterson's late comeback bid and hang on for an 80-77 victory. Edmondson (4-0) struggled with free-throw shooting at times during the game, making 29 of 43 overall, but the Red Storm converted nine of 10 free throws down the stretch.

Poly quarterback Antoine Goodson didn't complete a pass all evening in the Engineers' 46-20 win over Edmondson at Mervo last night. He didn't have to. The senior, returning for his first game after a dislocated shoulder, directed a run-only offense and scored four touchdowns while rushing for 155 yards on 16 carries in the victory. No. 10 Poly (6-0, 5-0) gained 542 rushing yards behind the offensive line of Keon Brunson, John Ward, Gregory Nixon, Reno Coles and Kennard Brown. Because the holes were there, Goodson never had to throw a pass.

Most every opposing coach that has come up against No. 3 Lake Clifton this season will likely say the same thing -- the Lakers' standout senior point guard Josh Selby will get his points. He got his share on Tuesday night, scoring 45, but it was No. 6 Edmondson which left Morgan State with the program's first Baltimore City championship. With balanced scoring, a never-quit approach that the team has shown all season, the Red Storm outlasted the defending champion Lakers, 58-56, in overtime.

Asked what last night's 37-17 Class 2A North Region title game rout of three-time state champion Hereford meant to his program, Edmondson coach Dante Jones didn't mince words. "This was huge," said Jones, whose fifth-ranked Red Storm (11-1) ended a five-game winless streak by Baltimore City teams against the Bulls, who routed Edmondson by a combined 70-8 in playoff games in 2002 and 2004, the latter being the final season for legendary coach Pete Pompey. "This goes all the way back to Coach Pete when we came up against them and didn't get it done."

COLLEGE PARK - Edmondson struggled throughout the first half of Saturday's Class 1A state title game and held a tenuous, one-point lead over Allegany at halftime. Then, Red Storm coach Darnell Dantzler adjusted. On offense, he emphasized patience, pushing his team to slow down and take its time to find a good shot. On defense, Edmondson switched out of a zone to a man-to-man. Those changes worked at both ends as the No. 6 Red Storm controlled the tempo throughout the second half and slowed Allegany's offense en route to a 54-51 victory at Comcast Center.

The Edmondson boys basketball team knew exactly what it was in for going into Friday's Class 1A South region championship against Baltimore City rival Lake Clifton. Coach Darnell Dantzler told his No. 11 Red Storm that, to win, it would take maximum effort from every player. For senior guard Chaz Lassiter, that effort was shown in a 16-point performance, including 6-for-6 work at the free throw line in the fourth quarter. For junior forward Kani Coles, it was controlling the boards and scoring a couple big baskets when they were hard to come by down the stretch.

Edmondson planned to jump out on Poly quickly in Friday night's Baltimore City Division I football game and Hakeem Holland made sure that happened. A senior running back and safety, Holland scored twice in the first six minutes - on a 6-yard run and a 40-yard interception return - to get the Red Storm rolling toward a 41-14 victory at Poly's Lumsden-Scott Stadium. "The game plan was to turn it up early and it worked for us," Holland said. "The interception was big, because I seen the ball, I seen where the quarterback was going to throw it and I attacked it. This is my first time playing Poly, so this is really a big win for me. " In a rivalry that has gone back and forth in recent years, the Red Storm (4-0, 3-0 division)
