CHARLOTTE, N.C -- Syracuse forward C.J. Fair said Wednesday that he was "50-50" about leaving school after his junior year and making himself eligible for the NBA draft. "I was going back and forth every day. I was going to go, then I was going to stay," the City alum said Wednesday at the ACC's men's basketball media day. "I made my decision to come back the day of [the deadline]. " Fair said he chose to stay when others, including Maryland's Alex Len, left early. He wanted to improve his game, not necessarily just his draft stock.

At every stop in his young football career, undrafted rookie James Hurst hasn't had much time to settle in before being thrust into a starting role. In both high school and college, it turned out he was ready the moment he walked onto the field, and the Ravens are hoping the same proves true on Sunday when he starts in place of left tackle Eugene Monroe, who underwent knee surgery on Wednesday. "I'm going to use that [knowledge] for confidence and understanding that sure, this is a bigger stage and it's a completely different opportunity, but at the same time, the experience is similar, being a young guy and being thrust in there in a position where you're playing a really good team.

High school seniors like me, who are looking to go to college this fall, are preparing for our moment of truth: The pile of college applications on my desk is toppling over and the February deadlines are days away. How did it come to this? When I entered my high school's double doors on the first day of my senior year in August, I was excited and had much to look forward to - or so I thought. I was one of the oldest and therefore coolest kids in the building. Soon I'd be running onto the field during the pep rally, getting ready for prom, taking graduation pictures - it was going to be a great year.

With the final payment on the cap and gown, we haven't any money left."My friend shared this information with a note of awe in her voice.Easing her toward the living room, I murmured words of sympathy."Stop that!" she cried. "You don't have a clue what awaits you. Your child isn't a. " She choked on the word "senior.""First, it's senior pictures. Photos so poor you question the DNA evidence that this could be your child.

One way or another, Ben Whitacre was determined to get his kicks in college. In either style of football, the European kind Americans call soccer or on the gridiron, Whitacre was passionately devoted to the goal of playing a Division I sport. Early on in his high school career, soccer appeared the favorite. Slightly built physically, he had the aim to join the midfield at the University of Virginia - and that did not mean the 50-yard line. But times changed when he began performing for the more publicized Sherando (Va.)

Trayvon Reed, the 7-foot-1 center who was not allowed to enroll at Maryland after his arrest outside a College Park convenience store last month, has committed to play at Auburn, according to multiple media reports. Reed, who was set to become part of a top-10 recruiting class that will be the Terps' first in the Big Ten Conference, was arrested July 30 for theft, resisting arrest and second-degree assault after an incident with an undercover police officer. Because the officer suffered two broken fingers in the altercation, one of Reed's two assault charges is considered a felony.

Thinking ahead isn't an option for an undrafted free agent in training camp, especially one competing with a veteran for a team's sole punting job. Ravens undrafted rookie punter Richie Leone began working toward an NFL punting job in college. He kicked and played quarterback at Roswell High in Georgia, and while at the University of Houston began a pro-style training regimen under a former NFL special teams coach. So if he can't unseat incumbent punter Sam Koch during the preseason, Leone will have an even more refined left foot to take elsewhere in search of an NFL role.

St. Mary's girls lacrosse coach Kate Hickman said the veterans on her team have just had enough of losing. After two years without a win in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference, the Saints are off to a 3-0 start, an opening run that may surprise some but not Hickman, a former All-Metro midfielder at Severna Park. The second-year coach saw the transition beginning last year. "The first half of the season was about me realizing that the mentality that was the product of years of losing was something I had to address before I could even start addressing the other issues on the field," said Hickman, who had come from a powerhouse Severna Park program where players always took the field expecting to win. Even though the Saints finished 2-13 last year without a conference win, they got a whole lot better as the season went on. They lost their first five conference games by a margin of 11.4 goals.
