St. Frances coach Jerome Shelton said his 15th-ranked Panthers are a far different team than the one that lost more games than it won each of the past two seasons.At last night's Greater Baltimore Women's Basketball ninth annual Invitational Mixer at the College of Notre Dame, St. Frances showed 14th-ranked Western just how different.In winning, 58-52, the Panthers controlled the ball better on offense, played with more intensity on defense, and refused to fold down the stretch despite a huge rally by the Doves.

A 3-year-old girl and a young man shielding her in his arms were killed late Saturday as at least two gunmen opened fire at a crowded West Baltimore street corner.The girl's mother and another man were wounded in the attack, which occurred about 11 p.m. in front of a row of businesses near the corner of Clifton Avenue and Garrison Boulevard in Walbrook Junction, city police said.Homicide detectives said Steve Allen Cochran, 20, apparently was trying to protect young Shanika Day when he was shot five times in the back -- with two shots passing through his body and killing the child.
