Towson plays its final basketball games Saturday at the Towson Center, its home for 37 years. And then? Lights out. Court adjourned. Next year, the Tigers graduate to the Tiger Arena, a glitzy $72 million, 5,200-seat venue being built adjacent to the present facility. But not before the school pays homage to the Towson Center with a men's-women's doubleheader. At halftime of the men's game against Hofstra, more than two dozen former players and coaches will be introduced, including most of the 1976-77 team that christened the building and went 27-3 - Towson's best mark ever.

Thousands of students and alumnae from Mercy and the Institute of Notre Dame spent the better part of an hour Friday night exchanging ear-ringing cheers, chants and renditions of their alma mater before an annual girls basketball game that has evolved into one of the largest high school events in the area. Once play began, however, only one side was left cheering at "The Game. " Trailing early, IND took command with 17 straight points, using its strong guard play and larger front line to keep Mercy scoreless for more than a quarter as it built a 21-point lead and held on for a 45-35 win before an announced 3,976 at Towson's SECU Arena.

For more than a decade, Towson's last regular-season home game has been a sleepy, sad event. It usually signaled the end of another long, losing season and the end of mostly disappointing college basketball careers for seniors playing their last game. For this year's Tigers, there is no postseason after former players couldn't adhere to the rules governing the NCAA's Academic Progress Rate. But there is plenty of hope for an increasingly bright future. In closing their first winning season in 17 years with a sloppy, but satisfying 67-64 victory over Hofstra on Saturday at Towson Center, the Tigers made history by completing the biggest single-season turnaround in NCAA history.

Part of the problem with contemporary rock is that it has come to include such a wide range of sounds that the term itself has become an almost meaningless description.Consider, as an example, the Cocteau Twins' performance at the Towson Center last night. Given the band's instrumentation and orientation, it seems accurate enough to refer to their music as rock. But it's kind of like calling a butterfly a bug; it gets the general idea across, but misses all the important details.This, after all, is a band like no other.

If you were to have your picture taken with Bruce Springsteen, it would be easy to make the world believe you were best friends.For The Smithereens, who have also toiled in the bars on the New Jersey shoreline, the hometown connection was almost too simple.None of the members in the band even know Springsteen that well. But there it was in Rolling Stone -- a picture of the band and Springsteen."It's funny, because Luther Vandross, Motley Crue, Alannah Myles and Richie Sambora were all doing work at that studio at the same time," said singer Pat DiNizio, whose band will perform at the Towson Center tonight.

Institute of Notre Dame girls basketball coach Jerry Hahn isn't feeling too emotional heading into Friday night's 47th annual rivalry game against Mercy - at least not yet. It could be a different story after the game. For the third and final time, Hahn will coach his daughter, Jen, in "The Game," the showdown that regularly draws at least 4,000 fans to the Towson Center. For the Hahns, "The Game" is as much family tradition as IND tradition. Wife and mother Karen Hahn also played in "The Game" for IND in 1986, coached by her future husband.

Cunningham's wants to be a restaurant for all moods and occasions, for anniversary dinners and impromptu weeknight meals. That's no easy trick. The atmosphere has to feel special but not overwhelming, and the food has to be captivating enough for serious diners but not intimidating to casual ones. Cunningham's - the latest from the Bagby Restaurant Group, whose other restaurants include Ten Ten American Bistro and Fleet Street Kitchen - gets this right in so many ways.

Balloons fell from the SECU Arena rafters, the marching band moved to the beat of Green Day's rock anthem "Holiday," and the Towson men's basketball team's starting lineup was introduced under a spotlight at home for the first time in the program's 54-year history. The crowd roared in approval as the lights dimmed and the four-level scoreboard overhead pulsated, a moment that would have been impossible in the old Towson Center, which was retired in March. And between the black-and-gold bleachers of a $68 million arena, the Tigers faced more pressure than ever to prove that last season's luster wasn't merely fool's gold.
