The Hagerstown Community College men's basketball team experienced the long and the short of championship basketball. It was a long trip and a short stay for the Hawks. HCC had a 1,300-mile trip and a quick turnaround on Monday as Lee College (Texas) held off three comeback bids by the Hawks to take a 104-97 victory in the first round of the NJCAA national tournament. But the real problem for HCC (29-5), the 12th seed in the 24-team single-elimination tournament, was it spent only a short time in the lead and a long time playing catchup.

The Hagerstown Community College men's basketball team raised it record to 8-0 as they earned a come-from-behind 87-79 win over the Monroe College Mustangs from Bronx, N.Y., on Sunday during the second day of the Jim Brown Classic at the HCC athletic complex. “I think our sophomores really understansd the significance of playing Monroe,” HCC coach Barry Brown said. “We battled in the first half. But in the second half, it was a gut check. Monroe had a real big and physically tough team that was well-coached.

The Hagerstown Community College men's basketball team proved you can't lose a game in the first half. And you can survive a setback at the end of regulation. But in overtime, it has to be winning time. And for the Hawks on Wednesday, it wasn't. Baltimore's Sean Farr drove the lane for an acrobatic, highly contested layup with 3 seconds remaining in the extra period to defeat HCC 81-79 in the men's half of a basketball doubleheader at the HCC athletic center. HCC's women defeated Baltimore 65-52 in the opener.

By BOB DeVINNEY Staff Correspondent Hosting the NJCAA Women's Division II National Basketball Tournament doesn't compare to actually having the chance to play in it, but it's the next best thing. For Hagerstown Junior College basketball coach Marlys Palmer and the Lady Hawks program, the dream is "to be continued. " Despite the obvious talent of the 12 teams visiting HJC for the next four days, something will be missing. Or should we say someone. Heather Aleshire, the most prolific scorer in HJC history, and the second leading scorer in all of Division II this year with just under 26 points per game, competed her junior college basketball career 10 days ago. A hearbreaking loss to Region XX champion Frederick Community College ended one saga, but has spawned the opportunity to continue the college basketball odyssey at the next level.

koelble@herald-mail.com CLEAR SPRING - Clayton Marquiss is back where he feels most at home. The 7-foot center has been somewhat of a traveling student-athlete in high school. He spent his freshman year at Mercersburg Academy and then enrolled at Smithsburg in his sophomore year, where he lived. As a junior he became part of the Greencastle-Antrim student body when his parents moved to that area. He's back in the Leopards' purple uniform and he couldn't be happier.

For all of the long weekend he has held them locked in agonized suspense, from the baskethead to the Blue Devil with pitchfork in hand. The clock is winding down in Mike Krzyzewskiville, and, by God, the coach is going to let their stomachs quiver right to the last buzzer. What's it going to be? Duke or the Lakers? They don't dare breathe. They whisper prayers. Silent promises are made. Will he leave? Don't worry, Coach K has his world exactly where he wants it. It's become a rite of summer the way America's college-basketball coaches sing this song of longing.

Whew! We can finally let out our collective sighs of relief now that the combatants have been decided for the Super Bowl. All we have to do now is put up with the hype leading up to the big show on Feb. 1 in Houston. Honestly, Sunday's championship games delivered a great deal of boredom if you compare them to the divisional playoffs the week before when all four games extolled end-to-end excitement. Those four games kept me watching - unlike Sunday when I decided to get back to some inside painting chores while the less-than-captivating games were on the tube.

I feel a little silly doing an NCAA Tournament column, considering ... I've watched less college basketball this season than probably any season over the past 10 years. That's what happens when you spend your free evenings playing way too much online poker. With Maryland in the NIT, I have little interest. (I know, it's blasphemous, but it's the truth. It's also the truth that I'm completely stunned I just spelled blasphemous right on the first try, which is akin to a 16 seed beating a 1.)

koelble@herald-mail.com Derrick Davis was one of the top guards in the Tri-State area in his final two years at St. Maria Goretti before graduating in 2003. However, little thought was given that he eventually would move into a Division I college basketball program, much less have such an impact as he is currently having at South Carolina State University in Orangeburg, S.C. After one year at Salisbury Prep School in Connecticut following high school, Davis found himself on the receiving end of a scholarship to South Carolina State.

With March Madness upon us, college basketball talk is hard to miss. Fan or not, this month, you can't get away from bracketology, win/loss ratios and peaking players. Here at the Washington County Free Library, we're always looking for ways to match kids with books. Sports books are often popular with boys, especially boys who are reluctant to read. However, sports books offer universal themes for all young readers. After all, there is a reason sports metaphors are often employed when talking about character-development themes such as overcoming hardships ("jumping hurdles")

SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. -- It was the kind of second half that had to bring a smile to the face of Hedgesville boys basketball coach Kelly Church. Locked in a dogfight at No. 5 Jefferson on Friday night, the No. 3 Eagles put together one of their best halves of ball this season, making 14 of 18 field goals, 11 of 16 free throws and playing the ball-control style Church preaches to turn back the Cougars 61-53 in a Potomac Valley Conference Division III showdown. "We did a great job playing team basketball," Church said.

It didn't look like much. Seven of Washington County's top girls basketball players sat down at a table in the concourse of Hagerstown Community College's athletic complex. They were all signing their name on the dotted line. But, each dotted I and crossed T did more than just finalize the letters-of-intent with the group's choice to play basketball for HCC next year. It was each player's signature in the Hawks' history book. "We think to-day is one of the biggest and best days in Hagerstown Community College history," said Hawks coach Marlys Palmer.
