Hannah Fenske scored the go-ahead basket on a jumper with 29 seconds left and added two free throws in the final second to lift visiting Navy (8-5, 1-1 Patriot League) to a 62-59 victory over Boston University (4-9, 2-0).
With Father's Day on Sunday, The Baltimore Sun surveyed local athletes, from Orioles and Ravens to Terps and Greyhounds, for cherished memories of their dads. The remembrances are as unique as the relationships they spring from, but in each there are virtues of fatherhood: love, patience, pride. And because these are athletes, after all, there are sports.
Robert Carter Jr. has been one of Maryland¿s most consistent players this season, scoring in double figures every game (13.0 average, second behind Melo Trimble) and the team¿s top rebounder (7.0 per game). One of the reasons Carter left Georgia Tech after two years was to expand his game and become more of a ¿stretch-4¿ -- a shooting power forward -- than a traditional back-to-the-basket player.
One of the common threads that ties together the 17 seasons Mark Turgeon has been a Division I college basketball coach are the transfers who have helped transform his respective teams, particularly those at Wichita State and Maryland.
Nearly 20 months after playing his last game for the Yellow Jackets as a sophomore in the 2014 Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, Robert Carter Jr. will play his first game as a Terp Friday night when No. 3 Maryland hosts Division II Southern New Hampshire in a preseason contest at Xfinity Center.
Even as Robert Carter's new team at Maryland gets all kinds of hype for a potential No. 1 preseason ranking with the emergence of star point guard Melo Trimble, the signing of five-star prospect Diamond Stone and the addition of fellow transfer Rasheed Sulaimon from Duke, the 6-8, 238-pound junior forward is rarely mentioned.

The addition of Duke transfer Rasheed Sulaimon to a Maryland team many have already picked to win the Big Ten Conference next season and be a legitimate contender for a national championship gives the Terps the most talent fans in College Park have probably seen since the 1970s.
Helped by a freshman class filled with long-range shooters, as well the arrival of North Carolina A&T transfer Richaud Pack, the Terps have a number of outside-shooting options. They'll need them all Saturday.
This has not been a stellar start to the season for the Big Ten. Aside from winning its annual interleague competition with the Atlantic Coast Conference despite its ranked teams going 1-5, Maryland's new basketball breathren have not exactly lived up to their reputation among the nation's best.
Former Georgia Tech forward Robert Carter Jr. has signed with Maryland, the team announced Friday. The 6-foot-8, 247-pound Carter averaged 10.6 points and 7.4 rebounds in two seasons with the Yellow Jackets.
Maryland baseball coach John Szefc paused and looked forward, trying to articulate just how special it was to be part of the Terps' first NCAA tournament team in 43 years. Szefc was just 4 years old when Maryland lost its first two games in Gastonia, N.C., in the 1971 national tourney
Swiveling his hips in pass coverage and changing direction rapidly Sunday morning on the Ravens' indoor practice field, former University of Maryland standout linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield planted and cut with confidence and no hesitation.
Maryland, which is contesting the exit fee as it prepares to join the Big Ten Conference in July, accuses the ACC of seeking to withhold information, along with more than $20 million in shared conference revenue.
