Reggie Holmes likes to say he cares only about winning, because if the W's pile up, the individual accolades will take care of themselves. What may seem like a canned quote belies the fact that he really means it. But the senior guard realized the magnitude of the moment as a silky-smooth two-pointer Thursday night solidified his place in Morgan State hoops history. The basket, which came late in the second half of the Bears' 74-54 victory over Coppin State, pushed the 22-year-old Cherry Hill native past the late Marvin Webster, a Baltimore legend, to become the school's all-time leading scorer.

Morgan State coach Todd Bozeman remembers the days of fielding phones call from coaches telling him about players they thought could play for the Bears. Bozeman, now in his fourth season, politely rejected those suggestions and continued to pursue players who could compete in higher conferences, but wanted to play for Morgan State. After two consecutive Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament championships, two straight trips to the NCAA tournament and an appearance in the NIT, the Bears are landing marquee players and are now considered one of the top mid-major programs in the nation.

Morgan State graduate Reggie Holmes acknowledges that his chances of being selected in Thursday's NBA draft might be slim, but you would never know it by watching him prepare for the draft. Every time he steps onto the basketball court, the idea of playing in the NBA is on his mind. "I've been thinking about it every day. That's why when I work out, I work to my maximum," he said. "I just think that others might not be in the gym when I'm in the gym. I'm just trying to make a dream come true."

- The end, for Reggie Holmes, came with 31 seconds left in a blowout loss, when he retreated to the Morgan State bench one last time Friday. The beginning of the end came when West Virginia assigned 6-foot-9 Devin Ebanks to guard Holmes in their NCAA East Regional opener. Holmes hit his first shot - a trademark triple - but spent the rest of the afternoon at HSBC Arena with Ebanks shadowing his every move, hand in Holmes' face, game in West Virginia's pocket. The final score was 77-50 Mountaineers, but the story was the job Ebanks did on Morgan's all-time leading scorer.

Wherever Morgan State's basketball team goes this season, the Bears take Anthony Anderson with them. He was in Winston-Salem, N.C., last week - in spirit, at least - when they won the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament championship. And he'll be in Buffalo's HSBC Arena on Friday - emotionally - when they play West Virginia in an opening-round game in the NCAA East Regional. Physically, the 19-year-old from St. Charles remains at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He has been waging a fight against acute myeloid leukemia since October.

Reggie Holmes (St. Frances) led Morgan State (8-6) with 23 points.

Bethune-Cookman's defensive strategy against the potent Morgan State offense wasn't too hard to figure out last night at Hill Field House. The Wildcats wanted to slow the pace to a crawl. That plan worked for much of the game. Bethune-Cookman clogged the lane and stopped Morgan State from running. But the Bears stayed patient and ground out a 55-44 victory in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game. Morgan State (16-10, 10-2) won its sixth straight, helping it move closer to a second straight regular-season title.

During a Christmas tournament in Kevin Thompson's senior year at Walbrook High, the precocious center tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. The way Kevin Thompson Sr. remembers it, the Division I recruiting letters trickled to a halt almost immediately. Todd Bozeman, who had arrived in Baltimore one year before, was the recruiting exception. The Morgan State coach saw beyond the knee injury and perhaps all the way to last weekend's championship victory in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

- Kevin Thompson lived through the culture shock of playing against Oklahoma and Blake Griffin in last year's NCAA tournament.

Thompson punched the ticket for the Bears' second straight trip to the NCAA tournament Saturday, delivering a 68-61 victory over South Carolina State in the championship game of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
