Greg Dillon accounted for 287 yards and two touchdowns, and Grambling State clinched a spot in the Southwestern Athletic Conference title game with a 29-14 victory over Southern in the Bayou Classic yesterday in New Orleans. Dillon was 9-for-13 for 151 yards with a score. He also rushed for 136 yards and a score for Grambling (10-2, 7-0). His performance helped second-year coach Rod Broadway win his first Bayou Classic and his second SWAC West Division title. If Southern (6-5, 5-2) had won, it would have forced a three-way tie among Grambling, Southern and Prairie View atop the SWAC West Division.

The Big Ten has named Maryland junior wide receiver Stefon Diggs one of 10 players to watch heading into this season. Unlike other conferences, the Big Ten no longer selects a preseason all-conference team or preseason Offensive and Defensive Players of the Year. Instead, the conference selects 10 Players to Watch, five from the East Division and five from the West Division. Diggs, who was one of the five for the East, missed the second half of last season after breaking his leg, but he ranked eighth nationally in all-purpose yards as a freshman in 2012 and had 34 catches for 587 yards and three touchdowns in seven games last year.

To say Tuesday was a good night for Western Maryland College basketball would be something of an understatement.The Green Terror women knocked off Dickinson -- the defending Centennial Conference champions and a team that was ranked 11th in Division III in one preseason publication -- and the men traveled to Carlisle, Pa., to beat their Red Devil counterparts.The women improved to 5-1 overall and stand atop the CC's West Division at 3-0 after their 71-64 win at the Gill Center. The win snapped a four-game losing streak against Dickinson (3-2 overall and 2-1 in the conference)

While the majority of the University of Maryland's athletic teams will be trekking all over the Big Ten beginning in 2014, the Terps will have a few shorter trips when it comes to football. As expected, the expanding Big Ten will divide its 14 football teams geographically, according to a report Friday by ESPN.com. Maryland will be in the East division, the report said. Maryland and Rutgers, the other new conference member, will play in a division with Michigan, Ohio State, Michigan State, Indiana and Penn State.

Edmondson coach Pete Pompey wasn't sure how his team would respond against Forest Park yesterday, coming off a bye week. The No. 5 Redskins looked rejuvanted, kicking off the second half of the regular season with a 35-6 victory over the visiting Foresters, in a battle for first in the City West Division. Getting a huge performance from its offensive line, leading to 100-yard performances by Darryl McCray and Gerold Dorsey, Edmondson (6-0, 3-0) won for the 24th time in its last 25 games.

Earl Carr led Southwestern (3-3, 2-1)

Today No. 12 Catonsville (2-0) at No. 11 Hereford (2-0) When: 7 p.m. Outlook: The Comets (1-0 league) borrowed a page from Baltimore County 1A-2A League rival, Hereford, in last week's 14-6 victory over then-No. 15 Western. With nary a turnover, Catonsville racked up 280 rushing yards with 6-foot, 235 pound RB Chris Wilson (168 yards) and 6-1, 215-pound Josh Desmond (100). Hereford (1-0 league), usually a smash-mouth football program, has more speed than in the past. And the defending conference champions must try to use it to counter with RB-DB Todd Leitzel and others on a team that has outscored the opposition, 108-6.

It's not something you can readily see. It's not something you can feel or touch. But under the surface of everyday life in the city lies an age-old rift between East Baltimore and West Baltimore, a gulf of perceptions about the haves and the have-nots.Now, for the first time in decades, pastors from both sides of the city are coming together in an effort to heal the breach and create a new, more unified power base."You'd have to have been from Baltimore to understand," said Pastor Anthony Johnson, who grew up on the west side and now represents the other side of town as first vice president of Clergy United for the Renewal of East Baltimore (CURE)
