Men's basketball Gay says broken jaw came on 'dirty play' Team USA forward Rudy Gay (Archbishop Spalding) told USA Today on Saturday that the broken jaw he suffered in Thursday's win over Lithuania in the FIBA World Cup in Spain came on a "dirty play. " He is expected to play today when the U.S. squad faces Serbia in the gold-medal game. "I've got a fracture in my jaw, a broken tooth and am going to probably need a root canal," Gay said. "The top is where I got hit. It's painful.

STORRS, Conn. - Rudy Gay cut a wide swath across the Baltimore basketball landscape. Few doubt that he could do the same on a national scale. Connecticut isn't expecting much from the freshman, only that he be the best in a line of great wings that has turned out Ray Allen, Richard Hamilton, Caron Butler and Ben Gordon. The right elbow, pointed at the goal before release, is reminiscent of the form of Reggie Lewis, who was very good to Jim Calhoun. The Archbishop Spalding grad connects other dots: Juan Dixon and Carmelo Anthony prepped in the Baltimore Catholic League and became the Most Outstanding Player in the NCAA tournament.

STORRS, CONN. -- His open jumper did not go down, but Rudy Gay hustled back and helped force a turnover. After the next whistle, Gay pantomimed the shooting motion. He squared his shoulders, got his right hand under an imaginary ball, bent his knees, pointed his right elbow at a distant rim and let fire. It was a fluid, textbook practice during a break in an exhibition game except for one thing: Gay forgot to follow through and flick his wrist. A part of Gay resists the lead role at the University of Connecticut, because the 6-foot-9 sophomore is still growing, into his game and his body.

The recruiting battle between Maryland and Connecticut for Archbishop Spalding basketball star Rudy Gay was won last month by the Huskies, but the reverberations and accusations over how the decision was made are still swirling from College Park to Storrs and back to Baltimore. Last week, after an exhibition loss to an NBA minor league team at Comcast Center, Terps coach Gary Williams made an off-the-cuff remark seemingly pointed at Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun.

Rudy Gay of Archbishop Spalding and Maurice Martin of Calvert Hall have more in common than just playing basketball in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association. Both are juniors who -- Gay at 6 feet 7 and Martin at 6-6 -- tower over most of their classmates. Both live outside of Baltimore, just east of the beltway. And both are looking forward to the days when they get their driver's licenses. Gay and Martin are linked not just by their basketball skills, but also by where they showcase them.

To Josh Selby, the Memphis Grizzlies represent a clean slate, and a team that doesn't care about his past, only his potential. To the Memphis Grizzlies — who snagged the Lake Clifton graduate with the 49th pick in Thursday's NBA Draft — Selby represents an investment of minimal risk, but one that still has the potential for a big return. It wasn't a marriage many people saw coming. The Grizzlies never even had Selby in for a workout. "I was very surprised," Selby said. "I didn't have any contact with them [before the draft]

Depth will prevail Ira Winderman Sun Sentinel Monday took a ton out of both teams, but the pain tends to linger far longer for the losing team. While the series has been as wildly erratic as Russell Westbrook's play, the Thunder are playing for a legitimate shot at the NBA Finals. The Grizzlies remain in glad-to-be-here mode, persevering in the injury absence of Rudy Gay. Eventually the clock will strike midnight for the Grizzlies (although it did Monday and they just kept on playing)

A celebrity wedding would probably be daunting to many stylists. Not to Khalilah Williams-Webb. The 29-year-old is downright calm just days from what might be the biggest project of her career: the wedding of NBA superstar — and Towson Catholic High School standout — Carmelo Anthony and television personality LaLa Vasquez. The wedding has the added pressure of being a part of the couple's soon-to-be-released reality show on VH1. "These are things that I handle on a everyday basis," Williams-Webb said with a laugh.

Dwight Howard had 20 points and 11 rebounds, and the Orlando Magic rode a hot second-half start to go ahead by 41 points and hand the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers their most lopsided loss of the season with a 116-87 blowout Friday night. Rashard Lewis had 22 points, and Hedo Turkoglu scored 13 for the Magic, which remained percentage points behind the Boston Celtics - but tied in the loss column - for the Eastern Conference's second seed. LeBron James finished with 26 points and nine rebounds but never found his rhythm, shooting 7-for-20 from the field.

Every day, folks find new uses for this magical thing we call the Internet. Baltimore's own Rudy Gay, now playing for the NBA's Memphis Grizzlies, has appealed for help in the league's All-Star Slam Dunk Contest in New Orleans by asking high-flyers to post their own best dunks on YouTube. For me, the most impressive ones involve guys doing a somersault on their way to the hoop. Gay said he plans to use the best slams in the contest. His rules are no props allowed and nothing that's obviously unsafe.

Caron Butler had 31 points for Washington (17-59), which lost its third straight, while Antawn Jamison had 28 points and 10 rebounds. The Wizards were without guard Gilbert Arenas, who continues to play in selected games resting his surgically repaired knee. But they did have center Brendan Haywood, who played in his first game this season after surgery on his right wrist last October.

LeBron James and the host Cleveland Cavaliers took a 24-point lead early in the second quarter in winning their eighth straight game, 102-96 over the Hawks. "That's what we wanted to do," said James, who scored 22 points as the Cavaliers (56-13) improved to 32-1 at home. "We wanted to first protect home court like we've been able to do." The Hawks were hoping to prove a point against the team with the best record in the NBA. Instead, it turned into a day of frustration for Atlanta (41-29)
