It was just two weeks ago that the Dunbar boys basketball team finally settled on its starting lineup. All the while, the No. 3 Poets, defending Baltimore City and three-time Class 1A state champions, have found different ways to win. On the road against No. 8 Poly in a showdown of unbeaten league teams, Dunbar mostly relied on a tough zone defense and poised play in the closing minutes for a 55-43 victory. Senior guards Daxter Miles (15 points) and Kamau Stokes (12) led the offense, and the defensive scheme frustrated the Engineers most of the way. The Poets improved to 11-1 overall and 5-0 in Baltimore City's Division I, while Poly, which got a game-high 19 points from forward Darrion Stokes-Graham, is now 11-3 and 4-1 in league play.

When the Capitals and the Predators take the ice at 1st Mariner Arena for Tuesday night's Baltimore Hockey Classic, the two teams will be looking to skate off a little rust, check out a few prospects, maybe try out the new forecheck they just installed in this preseason game. For Baltimore, it means much more. City officials, led by City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young, view this as a showcase game and hope that a strong showing for this NHL exhibition will help attract a professional hockey or basketball team.

KIND words for our city and our new football team from columnist George Vecsey of the New York Times. He wrote this before the CFLers drew 41,000 fans to their most recent home game at Memorial Stadium:"This is a time of deprivation for baseball, but a time of reparation for football. There is a football team in Baltimore once again."This team cannot legally be called the Baltimore Colts, because that team was taken on a trail of tears to Indianapolis 10 years ago by a surly outsider named Irsay.

When Monique Bassett was in grade school near New Orleans, she would regularly scribble her personal goals on a sheet of notebook paper and tape them on her bedroom wall. Early on, her goals were directed mostly toward academics -- straight A's, perfect attendance and honor roll. When she reached junior high and developed a passion for basketball, a more long-term goal was posted: becoming a basketball coach. "I've always taken a lot of pride in the game," said Bassett, who played DivisionI ball at Bethune-Cookman.

I need to ask the people who've been writing letters to the editor expressing nostalgic affection for the 1st Mariner Arena - and horror at the prospect of that outdated box being torn down and replaced - the following question: When was the last time you were there? When the Beatles played, or was it Herman's Hermits? - By the way, a Baltimore home boy with an incredible memory - and a scrapbook full of posters and ticket stubs - tells me that, when Herman's Hermits played here, in what was then called the Civic Center, the rocker who opened for them was a pretty good guitar player named Jimi Hendrix.

Cincinnati-- --The Ravens headed to Cincinnati yesterday, the luggage compartment of their charter plane bulging with the emotional baggage of a dispirited sports town. I doubt anybody in the traveling party noticed anything unusual. The players are too focused on tonight's season opener against the Bengals to worry about the greater meaning of the game to the Baltimore sports fans who have suffered through another frustrating baseball summer. There's pressure enough just going on the road to face a division rival, and then there's the national television audience and the special excitement associated with the first game of a new season.

As the official announcements came down yesterday that Washington had been picked as the new home for the Montreal Expos, the Orioles went about their business at Camden Yards, keeping their emotions in check. There were no fighting words, not even from owner Peter G. Angelos, but everyone knows they've got their work cut out for them now. Life is about to change dramatically with a new team playing 35 miles down the road at RFK Stadium. Since the Washington Senators left town to become the Texas Rangers after the 1971 season, the Orioles have enjoyed this vast market all to themselves.

IN A SEASON earmarked to turn around the disgraced Orioles and reinvigorate their long-suffering fan base, the stakes were far higher for Peter Angelos than where the team finished in the American League East standings. Maybe that's why Angelos chose to put rookie manager Lee Mazzilli on the hot seat, which is essentially what Angelos intended when he said: "We made a commitment to bringing these fans a winner, and the responsibility for making it come true rests with the professionals in charge."

Colts article brings back many pleasant memories Jeffrey Marx's all-too-brief piece, "Finding My Colts," in last Sunday's editions brought back many great memories. Being 36, my beloved Colts were Bert Jones, Lydell Mitchell, Roger Carr, Nelson Muncie, and yes, even Mike Pagel. My greatest memory was Toni Linhart's field goal in the fog to beat the Dolphins. My greatest heartbreak - aside from their move to Indianapolis - was Dave Casper's catch in double OT on Christmas Eve 1977. These days I bleed Ravens purple, but I am among the generation too young to remember John Unitas, Lenny Moore, and Raymond Berry yet old enough to cherish the memories of the brown grass at Memorial Stadium, the Sack Pack, and the chill I got from listening to Chuck Thompson and Vince Bagli call the action on those Sunday afternoons so long ago. Sports, at their best, recall lasting memories of not only the games themselves but also of the youthful innocence of childhood.
