Allegany College of Maryland became the latest casualty of Hagerstown Community College’s personal war. “We have had some adversity,” HCC coach Barry Brown said. “We have been trying to play against ourselves and against the game of basketball. We are trying to learn to play more consistently against every opponent. Tonight, the opponent just happened to be Allegany.” The Hawks took no prisoners on Saturday. HCC controlled the paint and the backboards to choke off the Trojans’ offense and score a convincing 81-64 Maryland JuCo Conference victory at the HCC athletic complex.

Allegany College's first 11 batters reached base to start the game against Hagerstown Community College, and all of them scored, putting the visiting Trojans well on their way to a 17-1 victory over the Hawks on Tuesday. The game was stopped after seven innings because of the 10-run rule. “It was a bad day,” HCC coach Scott Jennings said. “When your starting pitcher never gets a man out, it's going to be a long day. There were too many walks in the first inning. There were a couple of dropped balls in the field that should have been caught.

Devin Miller has a short memory. That's probably what many will gladly remember about him once he finally leaves Hagerstown Community College. Miller, using every ounce of his shooter's mentality, got past his offensive struggles just at the right time on Sunday. The sophomore scored eight straight points in a three-minute stretch late in the second half to bring HCC from behind and set up a final defensive stand to earn a 79-74 victory over Allegany College to win a second straight NJCAA Region XX Division I Tournament title.

The Hagerstown Community College men's basketball team spent 40 minutes doing everything humanly possible to win a regional championship. Unfortunately for the Hawks, the title game lasted 45 minutes. Allegany College, which came within on shot and three seconds of elimination, hit three consecutive 3-pointers in the first two minutes of overtime Sunday to wrestle the Region XX Division I title away from the Hawks by a 81-73 count at the HCC athletic complex. Only bad luck and nerves kept the Hawks from upsetting the nation's No. 8-ranked JuCo team for the second time in five weeks.

They call him "Noodles. " It might be because of Mark Jennings' tall, lanky form. It could be because of how the Hagerstown Community College sophomore forward bends and contorts his body to get off jump shots. Or it could be because he's the perfect ingredient in the Hawks' game plan. After all, Noodles make either a great side dish or a hearty main course. Jennings is the staple to HCC's success this season, mainly because of his versatility. He has acquired a knack for blending in most instances, while becoming dominant when he's needed the most.

In the end, all the Hagerstown Community College basketball team could do is sit and stare on Sunday. The game was over. The presentations were done. The Hawks - to a man, coaches and players alike - were motionlessly glued to their seats as if all feeling left their bodies and all reality had left their heads. Their expressions were blank and their eyes were as empty as the athletic complex floor they had just finished playing on. It wasn't so much that HCC lost the Region XX Division I tournament title to arch-rival Allegany College by an 81-73 count.

If ESPN personality Dick Vitale had dropped by the Hagerstown Community College athletic complex Wednesday night to witness the final minute of the Hawks' women's basketball game against Allegany College, he likely would have classified Cara Thompson as a "Diaper Dandy. " Vitale coined the term to describe an outstanding freshman, and it certainly would have fit for Thompson, who blocked the potential go-ahead shot, hauled in the clinching rebound and hit four free throws - all in the last 30 seconds - to help the Hawks edge the Trojans 61-58 in the Maryland JuCo Conference opener for both teams.

bobp@herald-mail.com Times change. So do rivalries. It used to be that a Hagerstown Community College game with Allegany College had so much drama and tension, it made Law & Order look like Laurel & Hardy. Allegany seemed to have an annual pass to first place in the Maryland JuCo Conference standings and a standing reservation for a slot in the national rankings. HCC was the Trojans' biggest nemesis, trying to pull the rug out from under them. That was then.

bobp@herald-mail.com Usually, barometer readings from Cumberland, Md., give indications of possible snowfall. Kenny Keyes will be taking a couple of readings of his own today to see if Hagerstown Community College is able to avoid an avalanche. The first is the weather, just to see if HCC will be able to play Allegany College today at 7 p.m. in the second of a possible four meetings of the two teams. Things snowballed for Keyes, the HCC coach, in the first meeting as he sat through a 95-64 home loss to the Trojans on Jan. 17. The second reading comes on the improvement meter.

By BOB PARASILITI / Staff Writer photo: KEVIN G. GILBERT / staff photographer There's foul shooting, and then there's foul shooting. On Sunday, Allegany College did a goodly amount of the former while Hagerstown Community College did an unsettling amount of the latter. The best things in life are really free as the Trojans hit 26 of 32 free throws in the second half while HCC, at times, had trouble finding the rim in a physical, tightly contested 83-78 Maryland JuCo Conference victory at HCC's athletic complex.
