He held a team meeting before Thursday's game to begin discussing the postseason protocol. “We talked today,” Showalter said. “I think it's the unknown this time of year that drives players crazy. I want them to know exactly what I know. “We're going to meet on Monday [to discuss the postseason roster], and I want everybody to know what's going on with them before Tuesday, so when go into that workout on Tuesday, we have our 25-plus [players]

Upset victories can be the turning point in a team's season, and Salisbury may have found its defining moment of the 2014 campaign in Saturday's 37-34 overtime stunner against then-No. 6 St. John Fisher. But coach Sherman Wood wants to make sure that the Sea Gulls (2-2 overall and 1-1 in the Empire 8 Athletic Conference) don't let the win go to their heads. “What we have to be careful about here is overconfidence,” Wood said Wednesday morning. “We had a great win against Christopher Newport at their place at night in front of a packed house [in the season opener on Sept.

The UMBC men's lacrosse team's recent run - three straight victories and four wins in the past five games - can trace its roots to a loss. Minutes after a humbling 13-4 setback to Rutgers on Feb. 23 that yielded an 0-2 start, the Retrievers held a team meeting. According to coach Don Zimmerman, reserve sophomore defenseman Tim Eagan seized the opportunity, imploring his teammates to play with the kind of energy that the team hadn't shown in losses to Delaware and the Scarlet Knights. Then senior attackman Conor Devlin reminded his teammates of his freshman year when a promising 2005 squad compiled a 7-8 record and missed the NCAA tournament.

EMMITSBURG -- John Williams' days as a member of the Washington Bullets may be numbered after the veteran forward was AWOL for the start of training camp for the second straight year.Williams, 24, considered the team's most versatile player and a key to its rebuilding plans, was the only veteran who failed to appear for the 6 p.m. team meeting yesterday in Gettysburg, Pa., where general manager John Nash and coach Wes Unseld welcomed the players before the team returns to Mount St. Mary's College for the official start of camp today.

Rather than head onto the field to stretch at 4: 15 p.m. yesterday, the Orioles were kept inside the clubhouse for about 20 minutes while manager Ray Miller conducted his first team meeting.Information was scarce. Miller is adamant about keeping such matters private. But he clearly has become agitated with the club's performance and apparently did most of the talking."It was just a state of the union, a pep talk. How's that?" Miller said.Asked if it was well-received, he said, "I don't know.

The Middletown boys soccer team is far different from the squad that captured the Class 2A West regional title last season, but it would be difficult to convince Francis Scott Key otherwise. The Eagles were outhustled, outshot and outplayed in a 5-0 loss to the visiting Knights in Union Bridge last night. Middletown torched the nets with three goals in the first half -two of which came in the final minute of play - and added two more in the second half. The Knights' domination of Francis Scott Key, which dropped to 1-1 in the Monocacy Valley Athletic League and 1-2-1 overall, forced co-coaches Bob Cole and Michael Oakes to call a team meeting after the game.

Manny Machado was given the opportunity to speak to his team in a meeting before Monday's game against the Boston Red Sox at Camden Yards. Like he has now done publicly, the Orioles third baseman apologized. “Today, with the meeting, we just got to get focused, get back on track and get back to what we need to do,” Machado said after Monday's 4-0 win over the Boston Red Sox. “You go up there and say what you are feeling. I went up there and apologized to everybody here.” Machado earned national scrutiny for three incidents in the series against the Oakland Athletics over the weekend.  In the series opener Friday, he took objection to a tag by third baseman Josh Donaldson and started an argument that resulted in the benches clearing.

The Maryland and Notre Dame men's lacrosse teams entered the season having met five times in their histories. On Saturday, they will face each other for the third time in just over a month. The Terps (13-3), who are the seventh seed in the NCAA tournament, won the first meeting, 12-8, on April 19. But six days later, the Fighting Irish (11-5), the sixth seed, returned the favor with a 6-5 decision in an Atlantic Coast Conference tournament semifinal that launched the team to its first tournament championship.

Less than 24 hours before Coppin State introduced its new men's basketball coach, the players were searching for more information about who would lead them out of the Fang Mitchell era. The players met Michael Grant, their new coach, Tuesday morning, but minutes before the news conference, they grabbed at a pile of news releases near the podium to learn even more. To junior guard Sterling Smith, Grant was a man of mystery. "It's all new to us, new information," said Smith, who averaged 10.9 points last season.

OXFORD, OHIO -- John and Jim Harbaugh are teaming up to orchestrate what they believe is another first. The head coaching brothers have scheduled joint practices between John's Ravens and Jim's San Francisco 49ers following the matchup between the two teams in Week One of the preseason on Thursday, Aug. 7 at M&T Bank Stadium. While more and more NFL teams are engaging in joint practices during training camp - the Ravens have not done it in recent seasons - those workouts typically occur in the days before the teams play in the preseason.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland fans are well aware that Saturday's game against No. 8 Duke will be the Terps ' last visit to Cameron Indoor Stadium for the foreseeable future - or at least until Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski has nothing to say about it. Maryland coach Mark Turgeon and his players know that, too, so for them, the nationally televised matchup against the Blue Devils has as much to do with the rivalry's heated history as the current plight...

Shortly after the season began, Calvert Hall basketball coach John Bauersfeld crammed his players into a classroom and let them have their say. The Cardinals had dominated their summer league, dedicated themselves to a rigorous workout program in the fall and filled the preseason with grind-it-out practices that brought healthy competition. But that collective heart-to-heart in mid-December - each player having his say - might have as much to do with the Cardinals' breakthrough season as anything else.

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Nationals have shuffled their lineups, contemplated trades. Yesterday, manager Frank Robinson convened a pre-game team meeting that he said was to "clear the air" and get players more focused. Then the Nationals went out and nevertheless lost their 13th straight one-run game, a 3-2 decision to the San Diego Padres in which Washington managed five hits. Instead of pre-game meetings, maybe the Nationals need a collective hug, or an amulet, or an exorcist. Anything to reverse the red tide engulfing their season and threatening to take them out of wild-card contention if things get much worse.

Swiveling in the pocket as he eyed the Ravens' coverage schemes during the AFC championship game last January, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady certainly didn't lack for inviting targets downfield. Brady threw to tight end Aaron Hernandez and wide receivers Wes Welker and Brandon Lloyd. During a 28-13 loss at Gillette Stadium, he passed with 320 yards for one touchdown and two interceptions. Heading into Sunday's rematch against the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium, however, Brady is no longer so fortunate.
