"We're not as strong a team as last year, but despite missing a lot of opportunities, we didn't play badly tonight."

Harvey and his brothers Thomas and James stand next to their green wooden pigeon coop in Wagner's Point, their heads cocked skyward."C'mon, birds!" shouts Harvey, pausing to drink from a big bottle of Bud. "Get in the coop!"When one of the WP Fliers -- the team of racing pigeons the Smith brothers own and train in this tiny southeast Baltimore neighborhood -- stops on a power line instead of completing the race by flying into the coop, Harvey sighs."Some birds are stubborn," says the construction worker.

For more than 30 years, the Smith family has operated a hardware store in Jarrettsville known as Smith Ace Hardware. Once the site of a blacksmith shop owned and operated by Charles Amerien in the late 1800s, the business was sold to Alex Y. Watters, who built the building in use now in 1928. Watters was a blacksmith and wheelwright. By 1944, Watters' sons, Howard and Wilbur, expanded the merchandise to include hardware, farm equipment and livestock supplies. The store carried on a successful business for more than 30 years while the Watters family worked there.

A week in the life of a college basketball season is a blur of games, big and small, some overhyped and others overlooked. It is merely a fraction of what has become a five-month marathon that begins in early November and ends in a mad dash in late March. The rivalries are played out, not only between coaches and teams, but between players and fans. And, in one celebrated case, within the structure of a family. Last week was no different than most. A few upsets and a few simply left upset.
