This season, the hallmark of both Centennial and Mount Hebron has been great coaching that stresses defense.The difference in last night's Class 3A East Region semifinal, won by Centennial, 55-18, was that Eagles coach Dave Greenberg has had three years to build a program. And Mount Hebron's Scott Robinson, who used to be the Vikings' boys coach, was starting almost from scratch with his girls team this season.Seventh-ranked Centennial (19-4) will play at J. M. Bennett of Wicomico County at 7 p.m. tomorrow for the region championship.

U.S. Army Capt. Benjamin Harrow, who lost both legs in a mine explosion in Afghanistan and spoke to the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team on Thursday night as part of the program's partnership with the Wounded Warrior Project, delivered what coach Dave Pietramala described as the perfect message for a team in a three-game losing streak before Friday's night's 13-8 victory over No. 19 Albany at Homewood Field. “One of our keys each week is we focus on what we can control,” Pietramala said.

Top-ranked Maryland went to its bag of tricks to pull out a narrow win over visiting Villanova on Friday night. The Terps employed a zone defense a few times during their 12-10 decision over the Wildcats at Byrd Stadium in College Park, and the tactic was especially welcoming in the final minutes of regulation. Sophomore midfielder Jack Curran's goal off a pass from sophomore attackman Tim Mulrenan with 5:02 left in the fourth quarter capped a 4-0 Villanova run in an 8:21 span, and the team needed just two goals to extend the game into overtime.

Playing from behind against the New Town boys basketball team is a difficult chore. The No. 11 Titans always play stingy team defense, have a point guard in Danny Shand that can control the game and have shooters who have emerged. Dulaney on Wednesday was the latest team to find out just how difficult the chore is. Playing on their home court, New Town used a 12-0 run at the end of the first half to push ahead, and when the No. 13 Lions tried to get close in the third quarter, the Titans turned them away with a resounding, 57-40 win. It's the eighth straight win for the Titans, who are 11-4.

Maryland's defense, considered in the preseason to be the team's strength after the graduation of four starters on offense, is living up to the billing. The No. 3 Terps held Duke to season lows in goals and assists and a season-worst scoring drought of 26 minutes, 26 seconds in Saturday's 10-6 victory over the No. 1 Blue Devils at Byrd Stadium in College Park. Maryland's goals-allowed-per-game rose from 4.7 to 5.3, but that was bound to happen unless the Terps (4-0 overall and 2-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference)

The 26 best lacrosse players in the world casually walked into their first U.S. national team meeting, only to receive a startling introduction to coach Bill Tierney.He told them to sit down and explained in detail how to do line drills. Tierney then charged over to the blackboard and distinctly des- cribed how many players he wanted in each stretching line.Welcome to Lacrosse 101 by Tierney, a strict philosophy that has guided Princeton to five NCAA championships in seven years -- during what many refer to as an age of parity -- and landed him as coach of the U.S. national team.

The Century boys basketball team (15-3) has won 11 straight games, and coach George Wunder says it's no coincidence that the streak began when point guard Brad Schuler was inserted into the starting lineup. The junior has made an impressive transition to varsity from junior varsity, bringing strong defense, court savvy and fierce competitiveness that has been infectious. He's averaging three points, two assists, two rebounds and a steal per game. During the spring, Schuler is plays defense on the Knights' lacrosse team.

Severna Park senior forward Grahm Watson had a good feeling about this season. The Falcons have more than a handful of seniors - eight in all - and went 8-16 the season before, but there was a strong sense that this one could be special. The Falcons were in most every game last year, and had a number of three-year varsity players coming back. So far, so good. The Falcons closed out the 2013 portion of the schedule with a 7-0 mark and fully expect the winning ways to continue.

The Mount Hebron girls basketball team is 13-0 this season, and there's no question what the starting point is to the team's success - stifling team defense. The No. 10 Vikings were at their harassing best on their home court last night against No. 5 and defending Class 2A state champ Atholton, limiting the Raiders to 10 points in the first half on their way to a surprisingly comfortable 48-28 win in Howard County play. Senior forward Deanna Dydynski and junior guard Brittany Bowen led the offense with 14 points each, but the defensive numbers stood out the most.

When Stevenson lost a starting defenseman in senior Kyle Fendlay for personal reasons prior to the beginning of the current season, the thought was that the unit might suffer a little bit. But that hasn't been the case thanks to the emergence of sophomore Callum Robinson. As the No. 3 Mustangs prepare to meet Tuesday night a Roanoke squad that upended No. 7 Lynchburg, 9-8, last Saturday, Robinson, 21, leads the No. 3 Mustangs (11-1) in caused turnovers with 17, ranks third in ground balls with 36, and has scored two goals.

The Coppin State men's basketball team is off to a 2-2 start, but that may have to do more with the offense's production rather than the defense's contributions. The Eagles entered the week ranked in the bottom 20 percent of 345 Division I programs in several defensive categories. They are 335th in points allowed (86.0 points per game), 319th in field-goal percentage defense (48.6 percent) and 292nd in three-point field-goal percentage defense (37.8 percent).   Coppin's offense entered the week averaging 76.3 points, but coach Fang Mitchell said he is not terribly worried about that.
