Jim Brown pumped home the final buzzer beater. "All good things have to come to an end," the former Hagerstown Community College basketball coach said. The best of times in Western Maryland sports came to an official and definite end on Thursday as Allegany College basketball coach Bob Kirk retired after 33 years on the Trojans' bench. Kirk's retirement ends the final chapter of the classic Allegany College-Hagerstown Community College basketball showdowns, which had become cornerstones of the local athletic calendar through the 1980s and '90s.

bobp@herald-mail.com FREDERICK, Md. - Hagerstown Community College men's basketball coach Kenny Keyes might want to rethink the idea of using the weather forecast as a scouting report. Last Saturday, Keyes used the Hawks' season-ending meeting at Allegany College as a barometer to the postseason. Not only did HCC lose 85-71, two feet of snow hit the area afterwards. On Friday, it was no different ... except this time it rained. While showers were falling outside of Frederick Community College gym, the Hawks were weathering a different kind of storm.

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.

bobp@herald-mail.com The one game which has been a traditional focal point on the Hagerstown Community College basketball schedule is taking on a new focus. Allegany College at HCC used to say it all. It was the first game of (at least) the Western Maryland trilogy. It was Allegany's Bob Kirk vs. HCC's Jim Brown matching coaching wits. It was a contrast and comparison of playing styles. That game is back for its annual run tonight at 8 in the HCC athletic complex, but Brown has since retired and the Hawks are hovering around .500.

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.

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.

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.

FREDERICK, Md. - When it comes down to it, the difference between the Hagerstown Community College and Allegany College basketball teams is how each holds their water. HCC is like a fire hydrant, going for quick, strong blasts to wash away opponents. Allegany, on the other hand, is like a kitchen faucet with a steady stream of results. The Trojans' even pressure won out in the end. Allegany squandered a 14-point halftime lead but tapped into consistent play by scoring the final six points in the last 22 seconds to sink HCC 99-94 Sunday for the Maryland JuCo Conference title at Frederick Community College.

Leave for Green-er pastures Ex-Goretti star takes his chance with North Texas By BOB PARASILITI bobp@herald-mail.com There are many stories of athletes who sign to play for colleges based on everything they will get from a university besides an education. And then there is Lee Green, a story unto himself. The former St. Maria Goretti star held out for two things in his recruiting whirlwind - a chance for experience and a chance to play. And like a no-look pass, they both came out of nowhere, convincing Green to sign a letter of intent to play basketball for North Texas.
