For the second game in a row, Navy committed more turnovers than its opponent. Perhaps not coincidentally, the Midshipmen lost both games. The team turned the ball over 18 times compared to No. 18 Fairfield's 13 in an eventual 10-9 loss last Tuesday. On Sunday, Navy coughed up the ball 17 times versus Georgetown's 16 turnovers in a 9-8 overtime loss. The Midshipmen's inability to protect the ball has been a theme harped on by coach Rick Sowell, who was understandably dismayed by the team's performance against the Hoyas.

COLLEGE PARK - As a disappointing season gave way to a tumultuous offseason earlier this year, Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon waited anxiously for the start of preseason practice. With an overhauled roster and a new offense, the Terps are scheduled to begin practice Friday as they get ready for their first season in the Big Ten Conference. Maryland, which finished 17-15 in its Atlantic Coast Conference farewell and failed for the fourth straight year to make the NCAA tournament, opens the 2014-15 season Nov. 14 against Wagner.

COLLEGE PARK - Last season, Mark Turgeon had kidney stones. This year, the Maryland coach is suffering through their metaphorical equivalent - turnovers. Playing against a tiny, overmatched Monmouth team, the Terps committed a season-high 23 turnovers but elevated their play significantly in the second half to secure their ninth straight victory, 71-38, before an announced 9,265 at Comcast Center on Wednesday night. It's Maryland's longest winning streak since 2002. It was the fewest points scored against the Terps and their largest victory margin this season.

The precise finish from McDonogh soccer star Bridgette Andrzejewski - a heavy shot from 30 yards aimed inside the upper corner - was a welcome sight for coach Harry Canellakis. That it happened during a pickup game in the middle of the summer, with nothing on the line, didn't matter. The No. 1 Eagles graduated a number of standouts from last year's Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship team, but Andrzejewski's wicked strike - her first touch in the friendly session - was a comforting reminder of what Canellakis has returning this season.

ATLANTA -- Lightning struck the Buffalo Bills in the same place last night. The Super Bowl.For the fourth straight year, the Bills came up short in the NFL's big game. For the second straight year, they succumbed to the Dallas Cowboys with self-inflicted wounds.That turnover monster reared its ugly head, and the Bills couldn't get out of the way. This time they had three costly turnovers in a 30-13 loss, which was an improvement, at least, on 52-17 with nine turnovers a year ago."In the second half, we gave them a couple of gifts," quarterback Jim Kelly said after the Bills tied the Minnesota Vikings and Denver Broncos as the losingest teams in Super Bowl history, all 0-4."

According to Maryland cornerback Kevin Barnes, the Terps' inability to create turnovers last season was the one thing that stopped the defense - and the team - from taking its game to the next level. After only two games, the Terps have already shown progress in that area, with three FIU turnovers helping the Terps to a 26-10 win over Florida International on Saturday night. In its first two games, Maryland grabbed three interceptions - including two by Barnes. The Terps totaled eight interceptions all last season.

Western coach Tiffany Silver stressed one thing at halftime in yesterday's game against Riverdale Baptist: cutting down on turnovers. Still the turnovers continued to hinder the No. 2 Doves as they gave the ball away 30 times - 15 in each half - in a 55-45 loss to The Washington Post's No. 1 girls team yesterday at the 13th annual Basketball Academy at Morgan State's Hill Field House. "We've got to take care of the ball," Silver said. "We cut the lead from 16 to seven and then, four straight turnovers.

As close to a standout as Hood has, James Weger forged one of the best performances among Commonwealth Conference men's lacrosse players this spring. The junior defenseman led the Blazers (4-12 overall and 1-7 in the league) in caused turnovers with 49 and ranked second in ground balls with 73, trailing only junior faceoff specialist Randolph Clark's 108 ground balls.

A Stevenson defense that has surrendered just 5.8 goals per game in its last nine contests has been led by the play of senior defenseman Kyle Holechek.

In a game in which neither team made many mistakes, an attempt to flip the ball to Calvert Hall junior attackman Timmy Kelly in overtime afforded Gilman senior defensemen Chase Campbell the opportunity he needed to force a turnover. About 30 seconds after Campbell checked the ball from Kelly's stick, the ill-advised exchange came back to haunt the No. 5 Cardinals when Gilman senior Tyler Ruhl converted a perfect feed from fellow attackman Andy Matthews to give the No. 6 Greyhounds an 11-10 victory in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference quarterfinal Friday afternoon in Roland Park.

Having surrendered 9.2 goals per game this spring, No. 9 Johns Hopkins ranks just outside of the top third in Division I in defense, and the team has aided that effort by staying out of the penalty box. Against the Blue Jays (6-3), opponents have had just 19 extra-man opportunities, which is the least allowed by any team in the country. At this rate, the team is poised to finish the season giving up just a shade under 30 extra-man chances, which would mark a program low since at least 2002.

Its 8-7 loss to Manhattan on Sunday was agonizing on several levels for Mount St. Mary's. Not only were the Jaspers winless in five games, but the Mountaineers won several key statistical battles, including in shots (35-16), turnovers (17 for Mount St. Mary's compared with 23 for Manhattan) and clears (13-for-16 for the Mountaineers and 11-for-23 for the Jaspers). But despite scoring the last four goals of the contest, Mount St. Mary's couldn't come up with the equalizer and instead dropped to 0-6, matching the program's worst start since 1994.

On offense, coaches say the team will concentrate on minimizing turnovers. “A lot of people use springs for a lot of different reasons - fine-tune the offense, fine-tune the defense ... do goal-line, do red-zone defense,” defensive coordinator Brian Stewart said Wednesday. “Nevada-Reno, they put in a pistol in the spring.
