You might think that major-college basketball players become immune to criticism over time. They play on such a public stage, after all. I was thinking about that as I listened to Maryland sophomore Shaquille Cleare talk to reporters after scoring 10 points (on 5-for-7 shooting) after the 66-62 victory over Florida Atlantic . Cleare had played arguably his best game of the year. But he seemed a little burdened by previous criticism. It had seemed to wear on him. Or maybe it was Cleare being his own worst critic.

To my mind, the Ravens will have an even tougher time beating the Houston Texans than fans believe. When Ray Lewis plays, the defense looks slower and not as good at stopping the run, which is what the Texans and Arian Foster thrive on. Ed Reed also looks a step or two slower than he has in past years. Haloti Ngata, Terrell Suggs and Lardarious Webb, who have been the best all year for the defense, will need to have great games to stop the Texans' offensive threat from Mr. Foster and Andre Johnson.

Bel Air and visiting Edgewood each brought an impressive stat to Friday's girls soccer showdown. The host and No. 9 Bobcats had yielded only one goal in their first nine games, while the No. 13 Rams had scored an average of four goals per game over nine contests. Something had to give, and at the end, it wasn't the home team's defense. Playing fast and organized, Bel Air earned a 3-0 win over Edgewood in a key Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference game in Bel Air. Senior defender Bailey Gaisor played a key role at both ends, playing solid defense and scoring the game's first goal in the first half.

The defensive boost the Ravens hoped to get from the 2010 draft has yet to materialize for unforeseen reasons. But all seven picks are still around. More encouraging, even though there are few early dividends, there is the chance at least three picks could become starters at some point. Here is a midseason review of the Class of 2010. Linebacker Sergio Kindle Second round, 43 r d overall pick out of Texas Has not played Progress report: Kindle's season came to an abrupt halt on July 22 when he stumbled down a stairwell in the dark at a friend's house and suffered a hairline fracture of his skull.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — After two rounds of the British Open, it is pretty much as we all thought. Louis Oosthuizen is leading by five shots. Make that Lodewicus Theodorus Oosthuizen. "It's my grandfather's name," the 27-year-old South African said. "They call me Louis now." Well, not everybody. The woman who introduced Oosthuizen for his news conference called him Peter Oosthuizen. Peter Oosterhuis is the former English golf star and occasional television commentator who is 62 now. Still, he remains more famous than Louis Oosthuizen, who, until Friday, wasn't even as famous as the guy announcing the players on the first tee. But then came a round of golf not often seen in daylong conditions more conducive to sitting by a fire and reading a book than playing golf.

After suffering through a 52-0 defeat at the hands of Fort Hill last week, Meade's football team paid a visit to Severna Park Friday night to prove it was still a worthy competitor.And for three quarters, it was.The Mustangs (1-4, 1-1 in the league) trailed the Falcons, 14-13, heading into the fourth quarter before yielding two touchdowns to grant the hosts a 29-13 victory."They're a good football team, a lot better than their record indicates," said Severna Park coach Andy Borland. "They are definitely going to give some teams some trouble down the road, and next year they're going to be awesome."

It's back to square one in this American League Championship Series. Or perhaps that should be Game 1.The two pitchers who got this thing started last Wednesday in the Bronx, Scott Erickson and Andy Pettitte, go at it again today at Camden Yards in the fifth game of the series.The opener forever will be remembered for a 12-year-old scooping the ball into the seats for a home run that contributed to New York's 5-4, 11-inning win.Almost forgotten is that Orioles right-hander Erickson departed after 6 1/3 innings with a 4-2 lead.

ASHBURN, Va. - Leave it to Washington Redskins defensive lineman Kenard Lang to give Monday night's game between the 0-4 Redskins and the 0-4 Dallas Cowboys all the pomp and circumstance it so richly deserves. "Right now, it's almost like we're in the gutter trying to get up to the curb," said Lang. "I guess [the game] is the Gutter Bowl. You've got two teams trying to climb out of it. We're trying to get on a winning streak. We have the same inspiration. Our backs are against the wall, and theirs is, too. "I'm sure their coach is telling them, `We need to get this first win to get on a winning streak,' just like Marty [Schottenheimer]

John Fox takes a time-honored formula, a wicked defensive line and a journeyman quarterback into tonight's NFC championship game. For 19 weeks of the 2003 season, it has been the perfect blend for the Carolina Panthers. If Carolina's second-year coach can navigate his team past the Philadelphia Eagles and on to Houston for the Feb. 1 Super Bowl, it will underscore one of the most remarkable journeys in modern NFL history. Carolina was a 1-15 mess when Fox arrived in 2002, fresh from a stint as the New York Giants' defensive coordinator.

WILMINGTON, Del. - After two days in difficult conditions at a major tournament, there's bound to be moaning and groaning coming from the locker room. There are players telling sob stories of balls lost in wiry rough or wedge shots bounding off the back of stony greens. But in the midst of the lamentations, a bit of laughter comes from a wry smile in the corner. It is Laura Davies, watching with a grin that grows larger by the second. "When I walk in the locker room and I hear all the whining about, `It's long.

COLLEGE PARK -- For one afternoon, at least, it was like old times at Cole Field House.Joe Smith was the object of the roaring crowd's affections, Duane Simpkins actually smiled, and Maryland went inside to its power game to win a critical Atlantic Coast Conference contest.Only this time it was Keith Booth's power game -- not Smith's -- that spirited Maryland to an 83-71 victory over Virginia to keep alive its NCAA tournament hopes.Booth scored a career-high 29 points, hitting 10 of 14 shots, and took 10 rebounds to polish off the Cavaliers for the second time this season.
