One of the great things about a sports blog is that it gives the everyday fan an opportunity to react immediately to a game or a news event and publish that reaction for everyone who might want to see it. Of course, that's also one of the bad things about the Internet, because the instant reaction isn't always the most informed reaction. Take, for instance, a couple of posts Tuesday calling out Orioles hitting coach Terry Crowley because the club got only one hit in Monday night's 5-0 loss to the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field.

POINT GUARD Illinois is headed toward an NCAA team record for assist-to- turnover ratio. That smart, unselfish play begins with junior Deron Williams, the stocky (6-3, 210) leader whose personal ratio is 2.38. It's not as good as the 2.41 that Chris Paul has running Wake Forest. The better shooter, Paul doesn't put it up as much as you think. Come June, they could be the first two guards taken in the NBA draft. SMALL FORWARD In an effort to balance the floor and both sides' rotation, let's match two seniors: N.C. State's Julius Hodge and Syracuse's Hakim Warrick.

College Park -- He has been extraordinary on more than one occasion, most recently in last season's NCAA tournament victories over Saint Louis and Massachusetts. His second-half performance against the Billikens drove their athletic director to scurry for her program."I kept asking everyone, 'Who is Exree Hipp?'

The two top-ranked players in the world arrive at Baltusrol for this week's PGA Championship appearing to be near peak form. No. 1 Tiger Woods claimed the British Open last month, and if not for a balky putter that led to his second-place finish at the U.S. Open at Pinehurst in June, he would be aiming to close out a Grand Slam sweep. No. 2 Singh won the Buick Open at Grand Blanc, Mich., in his previous outing last week. He stared down Woods head-to-head in the final pairing Saturday, refusing to blink posting a 63 to Woods' 70 and cruising to victory despite a bold late Sunday run by Woods.

Soon after this weekend's introductory minicamp ends, the learning curve will be accelerated for the Ravens' rookies. The Ravens project that more than half the draft class will become key contributors this year, which would mark the biggest impact of young players for the Ravens since 2002. If any group can ace this challenge, it should be this crop of new Ravens. Team officials have already described this class as one of the sharpest in their successful draft history. The Ravens' drafted players produced an average score of 24 on the NFL's 50-question intelligence test, which was six points higher than the average of all college prospects this year.

When J.D. Byers heads home to Westminster in a few days from Lebanon Valley College, the high-scoring guard could be forgiven for taking a break during the holidays from his relentless basketball training schedule. The do-it-all senior has been a dominating force in the Dutchmen's 7-1 start. "You can never be satisfied with where you are," Byers said. "When you're satisfied, that's when everything goes downhill. I want to go back to work a little and try to make sure I'm ready for the second half of the year.

Navy junior lacrosse midfielder Chris Pieczonka says his "Iceman" nickname comes from a haircut - a short-on-the sides, spiked-on-top 'do that he got one summer while he was in training at the New Jersey shore. After getting the haircut, Pieczonka's friends said that he bore a striking resemblance to the fighter pilot, called "Iceman," in the movie Top Gun. Pieczonka will tell you that it's purely a coincidence that the same characteristics that defined Val Kilmer's character in that popular 1980s movie - the steely determination, the bravado, the fearlessness - make him one of the nation's top faceoff men. "Regardless of your opponent, you have to go into games expecting to win faceoffs," said Pieczonka, who has cracked the top five on Navy's all-time faceoff wins list with 165. "It doesn't matter about the talent.

Sure, it wasn't a Big East matchup Friday night when Villanova junior point guard Derrick Snowden scored 15 points and handed out five assists to lead the Wildcats (7-4) to a 68-53 victory over Binghamton. But Snowden (Archbishop Spalding) played the kind of basketball that coach Jay Wright wants, turning in 29 quality minutes, including committing only two turnovers and contributing a steal. The key statistic of the evening was the 29 minutes, as opposed to the 33.3 Snowden averaged last season when he was the only point guard on the depth chart.

With a lot of young players surrounding her, Jeanell Hughes planned to play three roles in every Western girls basketball game this season - score, score and score some more.

She accounted for 47.4 percent of the Doves' offense. On Dec. 20, she scored 18 points in the first half against Lake Clifton, but she never finished the game.
