BY BILL STERNER / Staff Correspondent photo: RICHARD T. MEAGHER / staff photographer Washington County tourism did not score a lot of points with the Baltimore Community College basketball teams last night - because the Hagerstown Community College basketball teams scored points - lots of 'em. HCC swept to a pair of wins last night as the Hawks, behind Shanna Williams' 18 points, dunked the Red Devils, 79-34. In the nightcap, the men's team took advantage of a six-minute second half scoring drought by Baltimore to come away with a 99-65 win. The script was essentially the same in both games as both Hawks teams started slowly, then wore down the overmatched and undermanned Red Devils, who dressed only five on the women's team and six with the men. But for a Lady Hawks team that dropped their last two, the performance of the defense and the second-half awakening of an offense that had gone south recently was refreshing to coach Marlys Palmer.

My son came home from preschool the other day with the following assignment: The next time you come to class, bring with you a sign of spring. This prompted some discussion with me and his older brother, a first-grader who had some suggestions of his own. "You could take some flowers," the 7-year-old said. "Or birds, they're a sign of spring. " I wasn't quite sure how I would have managed to get a bird into his classroom if that suggestion had been considered a good one. Luckily, my 4-year-old had an idea of his own. "I could take a baseball," he said.

'March Madness,' high school style High school playoff time almost makes me feel like singing an Andy Williams tune. "It's the most wonderful time of the year ... " The open playoff format in Maryland, which ensures every team advances to the postseason regardless of its record, makes for great drama. It's a whirlwind of activity for two weeks, from the time the ping-pong balls are drawn from the lottery machines to determine the tournament pairings until the regional finals are played.

Sometimes, the simple play means as much as the spectacular one. Many sports media types - and I'm certainly one of them - over-hype the flying dunk, the tape-measure home run (or the leaping catch to rob it) and the 80-yard touchdown throw. But many times, it's an outlet pass, the patience to work a 3-1 count or the tailback picking up the blitzing safety that leads to the ensuing highlight. Now, like anybody else, I rave over the dunks, the homers and the touchdown bombs.

It takes a lot to scare the dickens out of someone. Sporting events aren't like exorcisms. The devil will make fans do a lot of really questionable things, but in most cases, the games aren't all that life-changing. That certainly goes for South Hagerstown and Clear Spring's midseason boys basketball game on Wednesday. On the surface, there wasn't anything all that shocking about the Rebels' 68-51 victory, outside of a 16-1 advantage in the second quarter. To be truly honest, the outcome is about what most would have expected.

BEIJING (AP) -- The climb back to the top is nearly complete. One more win and U.S. basketball is golden again. The Americans ended their streak of final four flops and Argentina's hopes of an Olympic gold-medal repeat, starting fast and finishing strong in a 101-81 semifinal victory Friday. All that's left is what the U.S. players came for: a gold medal. The United States scored 21 of the first 25 points, got a big break when Argentina star Manu Ginobili reinjured his left ankle, and surged into its first gold-medal game in eight years.
