Patterson senior guard Rysheed Corbin wasn't happy when he saw one of his younger teammates messing around at practice the other day. When the same sophomore again was more playful than focused during a later drill, the Forest Park transfer had seen enough. "Pick it up or go - we're trying to win here," Corbin yelled across the gym.  One thing Corbin's new teammates and coaches quickly learned is he doesn't hold back.  When asked why he decided to move on to Patterson for his senior year, Corbin, a 'B' student who played three varsity seasons at Forest Park, was just as direct.             "Transferring was a big deal for me because this was the one team I felt like I could win a state championship with," he said. "Forest Park was good, but there wasn't enough there for me to win. " Corbin - 5 feet, 11 inches of explosive energy - takes the same approach on the court.

Averaging 20.8 points and 3.7 assists this season, the 6-foot-4 senior forward-guard finished his career with 1,057 points, eighth-best in school history. Williams' style made it difficult for opposing coaches to prepare a game plan to slow him. He had the ability to penetrate and create and finish, and also pull up on his dribble and shoot out on the wing. In April at the Towson Center, Williams will play in the seventh Charm City Challenge at Towson University.

In his four years at Notre Dame, point guard Eric Atkins has gone from being a steady freshman who came off the bench for a veteran team to the unquestioned senior leader - and now unlikely leading scorer - on a young team searching to find itself in its first season in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The 6-foot-2, 182-pound Atkins, who grew up in Columbia and played at Mount St. Joseph, recently saw his role change from facilitator to first option after Notre Dame's leading scorer, fellow senior guard Jerian Grant, was suspended by the university last month for an academic issue.

It stands to reason that every die-hard Maryland basketball fan of a certain age remembers where they were 10 years ago Friday. In the first game of their NCAA tournament title defense, the Terps trailed UNC-Wilmington 73-72 in a first-round game in Nashville. Senior guard Drew Nicholas took the inbounds pass, raced up the court and launched a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to give Maryland a 75-73 win. Does it really feel like that unforgettable NCAA tournament moment happened 10 years ago?

If you first don't succeed, try again. And then, if needed, try yet again. The Edmondson boys basketball had the final possession at the end of regulation and again in the first overtime with the score tied against Oakdale, from Frederick County, but the No. 5 Red Storm was unable to convert the needed points that would send it to the Class 2A state title game. In the same spot in the second overtime, Edmondson senior guard Darius Walker changed the plan. Once again appearing to hold the ball for the final shot, Walker attacked the basket earlier than expected, hitting a running layup with 31 seconds left to give the Red Storm a two-point lead.

When he's not on the basketball court, Edmondson senior guard Darius Walker is more laid back than loud. But there was one exception recently when he simply couldn't help himself. It came last Thursday at Randallstown, when he helped lead the No. 5 Red Storm past the host Rams, 73-63, to capture the Class 2A North regional championship. After falling in the regional title game in the past four years, the Red Storm had just advanced to the state semifinals at Comcast Center and it was something to yell about.

As a senior returning from last year's state championship season, Aberdeen's Jimmia McCluskey expected to play a leadership role as the Eagles set out to defend their Class 3A girls basketball title. She just didn't know how critical her leadership would become. In January, a young Eagles team looked to McCluskey when fellow senior Brionna Jones, last season's All-Metro Player of the Year and the centerpiece of the Eagles' offense, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee and was lost for the season.

The John Carroll boys basketball team has found a safe haven for the basketball when games come down to the final seconds. It's a place that breeds confidence, comfort and, ultimately, victories. Clock ticking down? No problem. Defenders locked in? No problem. Self doubt? Not from Rodney Elliott Jr. When the ball is in the hands of the 6-foot-1 senior point guard, the Patriots can almost guarantee that something good will happen. A captain and two-year starter, Elliott has hit four game-winning shots this season to lead the No. 5 Patriots to a 24-10 mark as they head into Wednesday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference playoffs.
