Second-guessing is part of sports, but that doesn't mean that Navy coach Rick Sowell has to take part. “I don't read things. I don't,” he said of dealing with scrutiny. “I worry about the team and the relationship I have with the team and focusing on the task at hand. If I worried too much about what other people said, I wouldn't be here. "I've been the underdog ever since I was young athlete and was told that I wasn't maybe as good as my brothers. So I've been hearing things since way back, and I just can't pay attention to it. I just believe in myself, believe in what I'm doing, and so far, it's been able to allow me to have some degree of success.

It's easy to understand why Westminster senior guard Mackenzie Murray is savoring her time on the basketball court more than many others this season. In each of the past two seasons, Murray suffered torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments, requiring two surgeries (one to each knee) 13 months apart. Murray, also a standout forward on the Owls soccer team, spent 4 to 5 months in physical therapy after each procedure to be able to continue her athletic career. After finishing as one of Westminster's leading scorers on the soccer field this past fall, her third year on varsity, Murray is now doing whatever she can to help the basketball team to a winning season.

As he watched the 2011 campaign unfold while sitting on injured reserve for the second time in as many years, Ramon Harewood said he was driven by one thought: proving the Ravens that they made the right decision when they used a sixth-round pick on him in the 2010 draft. “In my head, I'm thinking that they saw something in me,” he recalled after Tuesday's practice at the team's headquarters in Owings Mills. “So my thought process was, 'Get back on the field and do what you're supposed to do.' Right now, that's what I'm trying to do.” The 6-foot-6, 334-pound Harewood is currently a backup tackle.
