Now that the Orioles have clinched the American League East title, the regular season is all over but the roster shuffling. The Orioles headed into Wednesday night trailing the Los Angeles Angels by three games for the top seed in the AL while leading the Detroit Tigers by seven games for the third seed. It puts the Orioles into a bit of a baseball limbo: Do they try to catch the Angels and not give their regulars as much rest over the next 11 games, or do they forget about trying to get home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, be happy with the No. 2 seed and try to spell their regulars?

The baby steps the NCAA's Division I women's basketball committee took to get the tournament toward playing the draw on neutral courts rolled over a pair of top seeds yesterday, when the 64-team field was announced. Last year, the NCAA approved a format for this year's field that moved the location of first- and second-round games - which previously had been awarded to the top four seeds in each regional - to pre-determined sites. But there was a significant rub. The sites for those games this year were chosen last summer, with the agreement that the host teams would be placed there if they made the tournament.

Four of the area's top 10 girls basketball teams received top seeds and opening-round byes in yesterday's state tournament draw at Blake High School in Montgomery County. No. 2 River Hill, No. 3 Dunbar, No. 9 Western and No. 10 Milford Mill as well as unranked C. Milton Wright earned top spots in their regions based on their regular-season records. The top four teams in each region were seeded by winning percentage. The rest were selected by lottery. Seeding teams is an experiment being used only for the basketball tournament and will be reviewed by state tournament officials to see whether it should be applied to all sports.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Let's call the whole thing off.Judging by what Duke did here at the Charlotte Coliseum as the top seed in the East Regional, the other 15 teams left in this year's NCAA tournament probably don't have any more hope of beating the Blue Devils than the teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference had during the regular season.If anything, they might have less.Avoiding Duke, until at least the Final Four, is a plus for the 12 fortunate enough to be in the other three regions. One team will be lucky enough to avoid the Blue Devils until the March 29 championship game at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. The sigh of relief you hear is emanating from College Park.

PHILADELPHIA -- For all the attention the Connecticut women's basketball team receives, that the program has won one national title and is playing in only its second title game tomorrow demonstrates to its coach that good things don't always happen to good people. "I was talking to [Tennessee coach] Pat Summitt the other day, and with them having the best team last year and not getting here, I said, `God does that to you to make you appreciate when you win all the more,' " said Geno Auriemma.

"A couple more nights in the greatest city in the world. " Those were the words shouted by a Duke player in an M&T Bank Stadium tunnel moments after the Blue Devils' 15-12 victory over Denver in Saturday's NCAA men's lacrosse Final Four matchup. Powered by a resurgent fourth quarter, in which Duke scored three of the game's final four goals, the top-seeded Blue Devils will be able to keep their hotel reservations in Baltimore. They'll spend their second consecutive Memorial Day playing in the national championship, in which they'll face No. 6 seed Notre Dame in a rematch of the 2010 title game.

Hello, old friend. That may as well be the greeting Salisbury has when York visits Sea Gull Stadium in Salisbury at noon Saturday in a NCAA tournament second-round game. The contest will be the third meeting this season between Capital Athletic Conference rivals. “There's good and bad,” Sea Gulls coach Jim Berkman said Thursday morning. “I guess you could say that we definitely know their tendencies. And they know ours, so that's probably not so good. It's tough to play anybody three times in any sport and especially in our game when the reality is, the game is meant to be played one time a year and two at the most.
