It always helps to have a mentor, even for the little things. Saturday night in Baltimore, senior point guard Joe Getz, of Archbishop Wood High, wanted to make a basketball commitment to the University of Maryland Baltimore County, and standing right next to him was Matt Spadafora, who'd played for the same two schools. "I was asking Matt how he'd done it," Getz said. "He told me, 'Just walk over to coach Monroe and tell him.' " Done. The 5-11, 165-pound Getz will indeed be a Retriever.

Jasmine Elum, a 2,000-point scorer at Bodine, has made a commitment to play for Maryland-Baltimore County. With 2,064 career points, the 5-foot-6 Elum is Bodine's all-time leading scorer in girls' and boys' basketball. She eclipsed the old records set by Samara Speakes (1,811) and Monte Ross (1,186). Elum averaged 21 points per game last season while helping the Ambassadors to a 19-6 record and the quarterfinal round of the PIAA Class AA state playoffs. She averaged 29 points as a junior, scoring a career-high 44 in a Public League contest against Strawberry Mansion.

CATONSVILLE, Md. - After getting stuck in Veterans Day traffic on I-95, the Penn basketball team arrived at RAC Arena less than 90 minutes before its game against Maryland-Baltimore County. Zack Rosen helped make the trip worthwhile. Rosen, the team's leading returning scorer, scored 26 points to lead Penn to a 59-45 win Friday night in the season opener for both teams. Rosen was asleep on the bus ride. The extra time gave his teammates time to think about the game. It wasn't a stellar performance for the Quakers offensively - except for Rosen.

Frank McKnight was so sure of his decision that he committed twice. The 6-foot-1 senior guard from Springfield, Delaware County, reaffirmed last weekend his August oral commitment to the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. "I was pretty solid in August," McKnight said, "but I told coach [Randy] Monroe that I wanted to take an official visit. " So McKnight went to the Baltimore campus, where he got to spend time with several other local products who suit up for the Retrievers, included Plymouth Whitemarsh's Tom Young and Archbishop Wood's Matt Spadafora.

Some things remain essentially the same through the years. Thankfully, the Palestra qualifies. "Nothing's changed," Randy Monroe said. "It's still hot as hell in here. " And that was when his Maryland-Baltimore County team was playing pretty well against Penn. It never cooled off, but UMBC did. And Penn's wins for Novembver totaled half of what it had all last season. The Quakers shot 52.8 percent and won last night, 71-59. Monroe, the former Roman Catholic and Cheyney player and assistant coach at La Salle during the Lionel Simmons/Doug Overton glory days, explained before the game that his team was much better on offense this season and much worse on defense.

Finally, the Penn men's basketball team can call its record-breaking losing streak history. After starting the season 0-10, the Quakers picked up their first win of the season last night, beating the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, 82-71, at RAC Arena. The nonleague victory was the first for interim head coach Jerome Allen, who took over when Glen Miller was fired Dec. 14. The Quakers were led by sophomore guard Zack Rosen, who finished with 28 points after playing the entire game.

Franklin Learning Center senior Jacob Wasco recently gave an oral commitment to play basketball at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County. The 6-foot-8 center chose the Retrievers over La Salle, Boston University and St. Peter's (N.Y.). "He visited the school. He liked it and committed," FLC coach Cedric Powell said of Wasco's accepting UMBC's full-scholarship offer. "La Salle was looking for him to redshirt. " Powell said the Retrievers are impressed with the first-year starter's size and ability to get up and down the floor.

They may be young and for the most part inexperienced, but the new-look Penn Quakers provided the Palestra crowd with a thrilling show in their opener Friday night. It was a tale of two halves for the Quakers, who erased a bleak start with a great final 20 minutes en route to an 80-75 over Maryland-Baltimore County. "We shouldn't have been in that situation," guard Miles Cartwright said. "But when the time came, we just kind of buckled down and played as hard as we could. " Cartwright, the top returning scorer from last season, answered the call as to who would step up in place of the graduated Zack Rosen, last season's Ivy League and Big Five player of the year, leading the Quakers with 21 points.

The University of Maryland-Baltimore County continued to mine the girls' basketball talent in the area with the announcement that Archbishop Carroll's Tiffany Coll has signed a national letter of intent to play Division I basketball at the school. Villa Maria's Jess Rieben also recently signed with UMBC, which plays in the Northeast Conference. Monmouth, Mount St. Mary's, St. Francis (Pa.) and Robert Morris also play in the 11-team league. Coll played center/forward for the Patriots last season as they reached the Catholic League semifinals before being eliminated by Cardinal O'Hara.

Bill Herrion ticked off all the ugly aspects of Drexel's play last night - a flawed, out-of-sync first half, poor free-throw shooting, and the availability of Malik Rose for only 21 minutes because of foul trouble. Then the Dragons coach added: "Thank God we play defense. " Drexel locked Maryland-Baltimore County in a defensive vise until it could find its offense in the second half, and the result was a 64-48 victory over the Retrievers in the Dragons' home opener at the Physical Education Athletic Center.

When the basketball team from Maryland-Baltimore County visited the famed Palestra for the first time in school history on Tuesday, the Penn Quakers started pressing the Retrievers as soon as the ball was put in play. They didn't stop until putting a 71-59 nonleague victory in the books. After leading by six points at halftime, Penn opened a 41-30 advantage with 15 minutes, 31 seconds remaining in the game on a three-point play by forward Jack Eggleston. The Quakers were not seriously threatened the rest of the way as they improved to 3-3. UMBC, which competes in the America East, lost for the sixth time in as many games.

The misery continues for Penn, as the Quakers dropped their 10th straight game to open the season, 77-62, at Lafayette yesterday. Sophomore Zack Rosen notched a career-high 30 points, and junior Jack Eggleston tied a career high with 19 points and had 11 rebounds for his second double-double of the season. But the rest of the Quakers shot just 5-for-22 from the field and scored a combined 13 points. Penn also had a season-high 24 turnovers. Penn trailed by 18 with less than 13 minutes to play, but outscored Lafayette 15-4 over a 3-minute, 45-second span punctuated by Rosen knocking down his sixth three-pointer of the game, a career high.

Tyler Hansbrough scored 17 points in his final home game to help No. 2 North Carolina beat No. 7 Duke, 79-71, yesterday and clinch the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season title. Ty Lawson added 13 points and several key plays late for the Tar Heels (27-3, 13-3 ACC), who earned the top seed for next week's league tournament in Atlanta. It was North Carolina's sixth win in its last seven meetings with Duke. Jon Scheyer scored 24 points for the Blue Devils (25-6, 11-5), while Kyle Singler added 23. But they fell short in their bid to clinch at least a share of the league's regular-season crown for the first time since 2006.
