Rogers himself.Rogers, The Sun's High School Player of the Year last season after leading Lake Clifton to the Class 4A state championship, has been nothing short of spectacular at George Washington.After Rogers nearly had a triple double against St. Bonaventure last Tuesday, his coach, Mike Jarvis, could not control his enthusiasm over the 5-foot-4 guard.

WASHINGTON -- Fordham guard Bevon Robin meant no disrespect. That's because he had already heard about the reputation of the George Washington players, about how this smallish point guard was somehow dominating the Atlantic 10 Conference.Still, there's something about first impressions. And the first time Robin faced George Washington and saw Shawnta Rogers -- all 5 feet 4 of him -- walking onto the court for the opening tip-off, his eyes got wide and there were two words that immediately entered his mind.

For a few seconds after his team's 99-92 win over the Richmond Rhythm in front of 3,312 at Baltimore Arena last night, BayRunners coach Terry Truax could not remember the last loss. Not that he wanted to anyway. Rather than dwell too much on the past, Truax talked about the difference between a team that has won four in a row, as the BayRunners have, and a team that had lost 22 straight. "We're rebounding and sharing the ball," Truax said. "We have a rebound consciousness. If you rebound, defend and take good shots, the skill level is so close that you should come out on top. I think the siginificant thing is that we've beaten three teams that are going to the playoffs next week.

"I had 38, and I was making shots every which way. I even had one falling out of bounds."

The rivalry began when Rogers, The Sun's 1995 Player of the Year, was at Lake Clifton High School, and Booth, now a senior, and Elliott, a junior, were at Dunbar.

BayRunners guard Shawnta Rogers, coming off the bench now, salvaged what has turned into a sour inaugural season by doing one of the things he does best. He shot and made the three, nailing three in the fourth quarter last night to help end a 22-game losing streak for the BayRunners in a 94-92 International Basketball League win over the Cincinnati Stuff at the Baltimore Arena. "When I look for my shot, I hit it," Rogers said. "When I don't look for my shot, that's when I can't put it in the ocean."

BayRunners coach Herb Brown watched the Minnesota Timberwolves on television Thursday night and came away impressed by the team's tenacity. He was able to convey what he saw on TV to his team in practice yesterday morning, leading to a 104-95 win in front of 2,816 at Baltimore Arena last night. One statistic shows just how tenacious the BayRunners were on their home floor against a team that had beaten them two nights before. The BayRunners out-rebounded Richmond, 54-26, a rare rebounding victory for a team ranked last in the league.

Let's face it.Little 5-foot-4 Shawnta Rogers and a diverse band of George Washington Colonials are a Cinderella story waiting to happen in this year's NCAA tournament.The Colonials are not only unranked and unheralded but they have a tiny point guard in Rogers from Lake Clifton High in East Baltimore trying to lead a wide faction of players from nine countries to success on the basketball court."They [foreign players] don't really live the game of basketball day in and day out like we do here," said Rogers.

TEMPE, Ariz. - On a team that offers the 7-foot-1 profile of Alexander Koul, George Washington coach Mike Jarvis is most appreciative of his little giant, Shawnta Rogers, 5-3."Where would we be without him? I don't think I'd be sitting here talking to you," Jarvis said last night. "We would be preparing to play or maybe even lost a game in the NIT."The Colonials (21-7) are in the West as a No. 11 seed. They face No. 6 seed Iowa tonight at 8 in the University Activity Center on the Arizona State campus.
