With their double-digit lead down to 1 in the final minute, Northwestern showed poise at both ends to secure a 49-44 win in the Baltimore City Division II championship Saturday at Morgan State. Junior forward KeAndre Cook, who scored a game-high 16 points, provided most of the answers at the end. After KASA's Davonte Lewis hit a 3-pointer from the left corner to cut the lead to 45-44 with 55 seconds to play, Cook hit two free throws after getting fouled on a drive to the basket. On KASA's next possession, Cook jumped out to block DeAndre McCormick's 3 point try and the Wildcats added another basket late to close out the win. After going 7-18 last season, Northwestern is now 16-5 this season.

No. 11 Maryland men (2-0) @ No. 2 Syracuse (2-0) Saturday, 1 p.m. Outlook: The Orange have won five of the last seven meetings, but the teams have split the last two games with the Terps upending Syracuse, 6-5, in overtime of a NCAA tournament quarterfinal on May 22, 2011. Maryland has spread the wealth on offense with 12 players scoring 30 goals, but the unit will have to match an experienced Orange group that has torched the net for 36 goals. Syracuse may use a rotation of senior Dominic Lamolinara (St. Mary's)

Joe Flacco did not sound like a man who had just led his team to its biggest victory of the season. Standing at the podium late Thursday night -- or was it early Friday morning? -- Flacco harped on missed opportunities against the Pittsburgh Steelers and repeatedly said how frustrated he was that the Ravens had to settle for five field goals despite moving the ball into Steelers territory seven times on eight drives. He talked about concentration lapses and failed conversions and the need to correct the little things.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco thinks the wildcat is a high school offense and he is right. But the Ravens would not have to run the wildcat if he didn't have as many interceptions (14) as touchdown passes. And the Ravens wouldn't have to run the wildcat if running back Ray Rice averaged more than 2.9 yards a carry and the Ravens averaged more than 20.6 points per game, ranked No. 25 in the NFL. And the Ravens wouldn't have to resort to other forms of trickery like the flea-flicker if they averaged more than 81.7 rushing yards and 308.8 total yards per game.

If Joe Flacco has it his way, the Ravens' experimentation with a two-quarterback offense would officially be over. After being relegated to a mere spectator on a handful of plays in the Ravens' 19-3 victory over the New York Jets, the Super Bowl XLVII Most Valuable Player and the owner of the largest contract in franchise history reiterated his feelings about the wildcat offense Tuesday, going as far as to say that it makes the Ravens look like...

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco appeared to get the message Sunday. When a team resorts to the Wildcat or trick plays to spark an offense, it's a slap at the personnel, especially the quarterback. Flacco didn't appear to be happy when the team lined up in the formation, and he seemed slightly irritated when questioned about it after the game. "It's good and fun for a little bit, but that's it," said Flacco in a serious tone. "I don't want to be lining up at Z and X. I want to line up behind center.

Dean Pees, in his words, had the dubious honor of being the first NFL defensive coordinator to watch an opponent prey on his defense with the wildcat offense. Early in the 2008 season, the Miami Dolphins stunned his New England Patriots by scoring four rushing touchdowns on direct snaps to running back Ronnie Brown, who also threw for a touchdown, in their wildcat formation during a 38-13 Dolphins win. Five years later, the wildcat is not yet extinct. The read-option offense -- similar in theory but more effective due to a legitimate passing threat -- is the new craze, but some teams still sporadically use the wildcat for a handful of plays to breathe life into their offenses.

Morgan State @Delaware State Nov. 23, 2 p.m. Radio: 88.9 FM The appearance of South Carolina State reserve quarterback Adrian Kollock caught most of the 8,053 fans in attendance Thursday night at Oliver C. Dawson by surprise. Morgan State was equally caught off-guard by the redshirt freshman. Playing a "Wildcat" role for the Bulldogs, Kollock accounted for four touchdowns, three of them the first quarter. Add a dominating defensive effort, and South Carolina State routed Morgan State 38-3 in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game.

For Carver A&T's Shannon Herlihy, Thursday night's trip to the state volleyball semifinal was an experience in itself. Thanks to her play and that of her teammates, there will be another first on Saturday evening. It will be the first time Carver plays for a state volleyball championship. The Wildcats (13-6) used an opportunistic offense and dominant serving that included 16 aces to defeat Ben Franklin-Masonville, 25-15, 25-12, 25-13, in the Class 1A state semifinals at Ritchie Coliseum at the University of Maryland.

The highly-anticipated girls soccer game between No. 2 Broadneck and No. 3 Arundel had two nifty goals, hard work from both sides and emotional high and lows. One thing it didn't have was a winner. The visiting Bruins scored early in the first half, and then the Wildcats answered with a goal early in the second half before surviving Broadneck's push in overtime as 100 minutes of soccer concluded with a 1-1 draw. The result did guarantee that the teams will meet again in the Anne Arundel County championship game set for 5 p.m. Tuesday at Northeast.
