The beginning of Kareem Storey 's college basketball career was spent at a high-major program in the midst of a rebuilding project. With that experience in mind, the former Towson Catholic point guard focused on one factor in particular when he got a second chance at the recruiting process. “Historically, Morehead [State] is known for making the [NCAA] tournament,” said Storey, who signed with the Eagles last week. “There's nothing like tournament play. That basically was what I based my decision off of - being successful, winning games and going for the best opportunity I had to accomplish those goals.” In Storey, Morehead State landed one of the most coveted junior college point guards in the country.

Carmelo Anthony had the full attention of basketball fans on Friday, when the New York Knicks forward and best basketball player to come out of Baltimore scored a franchise-record 62 points in the Knicks' 125-96 win over the Charlotte Bobcats at Madison Square Garden. The scoring total, a personal best for Anthony, 29, and most ever at the new Garden, could have been even greater had the former Towson Catholic star played more than 39 minutes . Though 62 points is nearly twice his high for the Owls during his All-Metro Player of the Year season (37 points against National Christian as a junior)

Most attendees arrived at the Towson Catholic High School Class of 2010 graduation in beach attire. The graduates had already done the cap-and-gown thing at numerous other high schools, where they were scattered when their alma mater closed before their final year. Graduates crammed into restaurant booths and sipped sodas as they caught up on their unexpected senior year. Their parents tossed them a party at a Parkville crab house to give the graduates each a tasseled mortarboard, in the Towson Catholic blue and gold, and one last memory of the school.

There were moments when Kanu Aja thought about giving up basketball. The 6-foot-9, 245-pound power forward attended four high schools - two of which closed - in five years, in addition to battling injury and weight issues. The adversity didn't end there. Aja, who “moved around a lot” in Baltimore and Howard counties, had minimal college interest and ended up across the country at a junior college that doesn't give out scholarships. “JUCO basketball is nuts,” said Justin Labagh, Aja's coach at the City College of San Francisco.

Josh Pratt hadn't met Tim Stedman until this year, but the two men who share similar athletic and educational backgrounds quickly found they have common ground in other areas as well. They are about the same age and both have young children, and they discovered they lived just a few minutes from each other in Crofton. These days, Pratt takes his young son to watch youth football games in which Stedman's son plays. "It's a small world," says Pratt, 42. "We hit it off. " But those particular mutual interests aren't what brought Stedman, 41, the athletic director at Chesapeake Science Point Public Charter School in Hanover, and Pratt together.

The path from Baltimore to the National Basketball Association is dotted with big names and busts, with perennial All-Stars like Carmelo Anthony, heartwarming reclamation projects like Gary Neal and whatever-happened-to former first-round draft picks like Josh Boone. But in the decade since Anthony was drafted behind a legend-in-the-making named LeBron James and the long-forgotten Darko Milicic, an argument can be made that no single family has made a bigger impact in the NBA than the Connelly brothers.

Marah Strickland didn't have any idea she was sick. She played two years at St. John's Catholic Prep in Frederick, two years at Towson Catholic, two seasons at Maryland and one season at South Carolina, and it's possible she was symptomatic the entire time. She just didn't know. A little more than two years ago, she finally found out. Doctors diagnosed Strickland with hypothyroidism before the 2011-12 season, and they told her it was something she might have had for a long time.
