For the first time this season, the sixth-ranked Maryland women's basketball team was not able to relax and empty its bench late in the second half. The Terrapins instead were facing potentially their first loss Wednesday night after pesky Michigan got within a point in the final six minutes of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. Making matters worse was having leading scorer Alyssa Thomas on the bench nursing a cramp down the stretch, but Maryland never wilted, getting a 3-pointer from sophomore guard Laurin Mincy to trigger a decisive run of nine consecutive points on the way to a 74-65 victory before an announced 4,013 at Comcast Center.

The difficult task was completed with a passing grade, but Western Tech junior pitcher Julianne Roper was still shaking a few minutes after the Wolverines came away with a 2-0 win at defending Baltimore County champion Catonsville yesterday. It was understandable, considering the No. 14 Comets had loaded the bases with three straight singles in the bottom of the seventh inning. Roper and the Wolverines' drawn-in infield got the job done. First came a come-backer from Ashley Dupski, which Roper threw to catcher Katie Blackston to force the lead runner.

The Johns Hopkins football team's appearance in the Sunday evening unveiling of the NCAA Division III tournament was a mere formality, but the program got a glimpse of its postseason future. The No. 8 Blue Jays will play host to No. 15 Wesley in the first round of the playoffs. The game is scheduled for Saturday at Homewood Field in Baltimore with kickoff expected to occur at 12 p.m. Johns Hopkins had already cemented a berth in the tournament by defeating Franklin & Marshall, 45-30, on Nov. 9 to capture the Centennial Conference title and the automatic bid that accompanies that victory.

Last night at the Metrodome, junior James Voskuil helped put the Wolverines into the NCAA championship game. But not before giving them an anxious moment.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan and Duke had staged a number of down-to-the-wire battles over the past decade, both during the regular season and in the NCAA tournament, both here at Crisler Arena and at Cameron Indoor Stadium.Yesterday wasn't supposed to be one of those matchups because the Wolverines were supposed to be overmatched by the top-ranked Blue Devils. But something stirred Michigan early in the second half. It might have been the thought of getting embarrassed on national television.

Shedrick Elliott Western Tech In recent years, Elliott has built the Wolverines into a strong program that consistently competes in Class 1A. Western Tech relied on All-Metro first-team selection Sharon Dorsey this season, but she had plenty of help as the Wolverines narrowly lost to Boonsboro, 112-111, in the state championship meet at Morgan State last month. Before that, the Wolverines placed second at the Baltimore County meet and second in the North regional meet using the formula that Elliott has emphasized for years: balance and production from different spots.

Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer has coached enough games to experience varying degrees of pain on a football field, but nothing may compare to the ghastly horrors his team endured Tuesday night in a 23-20 overtime loss to Michigan. If he could magically negate any one or two of at least 10 scenarios that didn't go his team's way, the No. 17 Hokies (11-3) might be enjoying their first 12-win season and talking about how it justified being the Atlantic Coast Conference's first at-large bid in the Bowl Championship Series.

Mount Hebron's Will Rice got halfway to the sideline and couldn't go any further. The Vikings senior, seconds after watching time expire on a 3-1 loss to Watkins Mill in the 3A state championship Thursday at UMBC Stadium, had the emotions of an entire season hit him all at once. A title game that No. 8 Mount Hebron once led 1-0 had somehow slipped away. “It just hits you, that was my shot ... and to think we had it for a second, the game was ours and we were up,” Rice said.

Western Tech senior quarterback Dwight Tillman set the tone on the game's second play, duping the Sparrows Point defense with an option fake to running back Jeremy Williams before disappearing off tackle and up the field for a 57-yard touchdown. "I just faked it, saw the hole, took off," said Tillman, who rushed for 110 yards and three touchdowns and added a 31-yard scoring pass to Marcus Richardson with 11:14 left in the visiting Wolverines' 28-0 Baltimore County 2A-1A League rout yesterday.

Overlea and Western Tech showed early-game jitters in a football game that could have decided the champion in Baltimore County's Division 2A-1A as well as the top seed in the Class 1A North regional playoffs. Both teams fumbled away their initial plays from scrimmage, but Overlea settled down first and got a 28-point jump on the Wolverines en route to a 34-16 victory Saturday at Arbutus Middle School. The visiting Falcons improved to 7-0 overall and 4-0 in the division, and they extended the area's longest active winning streak to 11 games.

Western Tech's Juleon Killikelly-Lee is just a junior playing his first year at quarterback, but he is playing much older and wiser than that. Coach Alan Lagon said he chose Killikelly-Lee to play the position this season "because he's a fairly mature individual, a competitor and really fast. He has a good head on his shoulders. " Killikelly-Lee, who runs the 40 in 4.3 seconds, manages the Wolverines' triple-option offense with a calm skill that has helped his team to a 7-0 record, the best start in school history.
