The Colonial Athletic Association tournament may have been short on fans, but the four-day event ended in a way organizers surely loved: with a frantic, late-game comeback and an iconic image of fans bounding onto the Baltimore Arena floor in celebration. Conference officials hope that the final scene - of Delaware celebrating its first CAA tournament title and first NCAA tournament berth since 1999 -- will be replayed and endure in the minds of Baltimoreans. They want those final images to help sell the tournament when it returns to Baltimore next season.

It was going to be Jerrelle Benimon's show. Towson's star forward knew it, his coach knew it and much of the announced crowd of 4,051 at Baltimore Arena probably sensed it as well. Seeking to advance to its first-ever Colonial Athletic Association tournament championship game and take the next big step in the program's revival, second-seeded Towson trailed William and Mary throughout Sunday night's second half. “It's about to get ugly,” Benimon, the two-time CAA Player of the Year, shouted to no one in particular as he ran back on defense after converting a difficult shot with 12:01 left.

The No. 7 UMBC men's soccer team rebounded from its first loss of the season with a 2-1 decision against America East foe Hartford this past Saturday. The Retrievers improved to 10-1-0 overall and 1-0-0 in the league and distanced themselves from the memory of a 1-0 double-overtime setback to Delaware last Tuesday. “I thought it was a real big win - anytime you win a conference game on the road,” coach Pete Caringi Jr. said. “They had a great crowd, a great atmosphere, and they had been on a pretty good run.

Matt Tilley hasn't had much free time outside of practice this year. In fact, Gilman baseball coach Larry Sheets said the senior has taken just two days off since August -- both between the football and basketball seasons and none between the basketball and baseball seasons. Such is the life of a three-sport athlete. And he hasn't just participated in football, basketball and baseball -- he has excelled in all three. He played wide receiver and free safety for the Gilman football team that won the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference last fall, served as captain for the basketball team that was one win away from winning its second consecutive MIAA B Conference title in the winter and stars all over the field for the No. 10 Greyhounds in baseball.

Seven Maryland players made their first career start Saturday, but it was an experienced player - redshirt junior cornerback Dexter McDougle - who had one of the more difficult outings. McDougle was flagged twice for pass interference in the first half and once in the second half. On at least one of the plays, he seemed to be well-positioned but didn't turn to look for the ball. "Dexter will learn from today," Maryland coach Randy Edsall said. "I don't think Dexter had his best game.

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. -- Towson pressured one of the top quarterbacks in the Division I Football Championship Subdivision into his worst game of the season, nearly quadrupled its rushing average despite not having its starting tailback and was within one pass of pulling out a win in the closing seconds. But when Tigers receiver Demetrius Harrison slipped on his route and couldn't connect with Sean Schaefer on a fourth-down pass into the end zone, it meant the Tigers had lost again to William and Mary.

UMBC won yesterday for the third time in its past four games, and the Retrievers once again can thank a senior who is coming of age. Forward Jerrell Dinkins, who spent the previous three seasons as a seldom-used backup, scored a career-high 22 points and dominated the closing minutes, as UMBC defeated William and Mary, 64-60, before 1,422 at RAC Arena. On a day when UMBC (4-4) was missing freshman guards Jay Greene and Tom Young - each of whom served a one-game suspension for missing a class - Dinkins, with help from senior forward John Zito, filled the void by making nine of 11 shots.
