Sean Woods hit a shot that was nearly one of the biggest in Kentucky basketball history, a high-arching bank off the backboard on a drive down the lane in the waning seconds to put the Wildcats ahead against defending national champion Duke in the 1992 East Regional final. Nearly, because after Mike Krzyzewski called a timeout at the Spectrum in Philadelphia, Christian Laettner hit what might be the single-most replayed shot in NCAA tournament history, an 18-foot turnaround that lifted the Blue Devils to the Final Four and ultimately to a second straight NCAA title.

Morgan State watched Bethune-Cookman start to unravel early in the second quarter of Saturday's Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference matchup even though the Wildcats had a three-point lead at the time. After defensive back Dion Hanks was ejected for striking a Morgan State player, Wildcats coach Brian Jenkins was also kicked out of the game seconds later for berating the officials. The NCAA does not officially track ejections, but at least three NCAA representatives said Jenkins could be the first head football coach ever ejected from a game.

Reginald Lewis running back Donnie Neal made Friday's 20-12 victory over Northwestern a memorable one. Not only did the senior score all three touchdowns and run for 189 yards on 20 carries, but he led the host Falcons to their first Baltimore City championship - the Division II title - and their first win over Northwestern since 2004. "It was a great day, a game to remember, something I can tell my kids about," Neal said. "Our coaches told us we could do it, and this time it was different.

The senior wide receiver caught 12 passes for 271 yards and four touchdowns in a 66-34 Wildcats victory over Anne Arundel County rival and defending Class 4A state champion Old Mill on Friday. Young's second touchdown catch cut No. 6 Old Mill's lead to one, and then he helped give the No. 4 Wildcats the lead for good when he began a hook-and-lateral play that resulted in a touchdown for Dillon Tighe with 1.6 seconds left in the first half. He also kicked six extra points. Young, 5-foot-9, 180 pounds, has 38 receptions for 654 yards and nine touchdowns this fall for the Wildcats (6-0)

Arundel coach Chuck Markiewicz thought his team seemed a bit nervous in the first part of Friday night's game at Old Mill. But once the Wildcats settled down, they took command. No. 6 Old Mill jumped out to a 14-point lead midway through the second quarter. That's when Arundel quarterback Jack Gordon and wide receiver Tyler Young helped the Wildcats make numerous big plays and score 40 consecutive points en route to a 66-34 rout which ended the Patriots' 19-game winning streak. That streak was the Baltimore area's longest active one, and Old Mill (5-1)

It was during a scrimmage last year when then-Arundel junior Jack Gordon's football season ended before it could truly begin thanks to a freak foot injury. "I was doing a running play right up the middle, and no one even touched me. But I made a move, and the top of the bone on my right foot just split in half. It just separated," Gordon said of a broken foot that sidelined him for most of the year. "It was tough. It was devastating. But I know that everything happens for a reason.

Today, before 900 students at a high school assembly in his hometown, Raymond Berry will receive a plaque acknowledging the accomplishments of the skinny, near-sighted kid from Paris, Texas. It's a stirring honor for Berry, 79, one of the greatest receivers of all time. He can guess the audience's reaction. "The kids will sit there, look at each other and say, 'Who the hell is this?

Maryland assistant men's basketball coach Dalonte Hill, who was charged with driving while impaired by alcohol in January, has settled his case. On Wednesday, Hill received probation before judgment -- which is not considered a criminal conviction. Hill was fined $500 for the incident. Maryland suspended Hill for two games after his January arrest. According to the police report, he was spotted “driving erratically” while making “abrupt and unsafe” stops and starts. It was Hill's second DUI, and his first since returning to his home state after a successful tenure at Kansas State.

Maryland and Northwestern haven't played during the regular season since 2007, but the two most successful NCAA women's lacrosse tournament teams are well-acquainted with each other. In 2010, the Terrapins won their 10th NCAA title by beating the Wildcats, 13-11, to end Northwestern's string of five straight championships. Last year, the Wildcats took the title right back, edging Maryland, 8-7. This year's showdown between the teams that have combined to win 15 of the past 20 NCAA titles comes a round earlier, in a national semifinal.
