Old Mill 59, Western 35.It's a score Western coach Breezy Bishop is not likely to forget.With a chance to win the Class 4A state championship in their first year of eligibility last season, the Doves were humbled by the Patriots, who claimed their third consecutive title.It was the second straight year that Western had ended its season with a disappointing loss. The Doves were upset by Walbrook in the City-Wide championship game two years ago.Is Bishop using the memory of those losses as incentive for this season?

Everybody, it seems, knows how good Akeema Richards is, or will be. Everyone, that is, but Richards herself. Richards, a sophomore guard at Western, is on the verge of blossoming into one of the area's best young players, if she isn't one of them already. She's drawn the attention of college coaches, and Richards was the only freshman to be named to The Sun's All-Metro squad last year, as a second-team selection. But Richards is having a hard time believing the hype, even if it is legitimate.

After winning yesterday's Baltimore City girls basketball championship against City, fourth-ranked Western immediately began to look ahead to this year's Class 3A North regional playoffs. As the No. 1 seed, the Doves have home-court advantage and a senior-laden roster that coach Tiffany Silver hopes can carry it through the regionals and toward the school's first state title since 1995. With yesterday's 81-18 win, Western avenged last year's city championship loss to the Knights and now can set its sights on its first regional crown since 2004.

You could feel the intensity in Western's sold-out gym last night as the Doves took on rival City in a battle of Baltimore City teams who were unbeaten in the division. Instead of turning it up a notch, Western turned the intensity down in the second half, and the result was a 54-44 win in a Baltimore City league game. Western (18-3, 12-0) was the more athletic team all night, but the Doves were their own worst enemies in the first half. After numerous missed layups and poor rebounding led to an 18-17 halftime deficit, Western coach Tiffany Silver told her team to settle down during the break.
