The Sun Remembers: Nov. 25-Dec. 2

Nov. 26, 2000: In a 44-7 victory over the visiting Cleveland Browns, the Ravens (9-4) score more points than they did in all of five games during October. Jamal Lewis rushes for 170 yards, Trent Dilfer passes for two touchdowns and Matt Stover kicks three field goals for the Super Bowl-bound winners.

Dec. 2, 1971: The Orioles trade outfielder Frank Robinson, 35, who led them to four AL pennants and two world championships, to the Los Angeles Dodgers. "These have been the greatest six years of my life," says Robinson who, last year, hit .281 with 28 home runs and 99 RBIs. In return for Robinson and reliever Pete Richert, Baltimore gets Doyle Alexander, a surly pitcher who'll go 35-37 here, and three forgettable players.

Dec. 1, 1962: "He's fabulous, a terrific quarterback. He's everything they said," Army football coach Paul Dietzel says of Navy's Roger Staubach, who leads the Midshipmen to a 34-14 victory over the Cadets in Philadelphia. Staubach, a sophomore, passes for two touchdowns and runs for two more as Navy (5-5) defeats Army (6-4) for the fourth straight year.

Nov. 26, 1960: In a Heisman Trophy-clinching performance, Navy's Joe Bellino rushes for 85 yards and a touchdown, catches two passes and intercepts one in the waning seconds as the Orange Bowl-bound Mids defeat Army, 17-12, in Philadelphia. The game is witnessed by an announced 98,616, including Vice President Richard Nixon, who sits on the Army side of the field despite having served in the Navy during World War II.

Dec. 1, 1948: Loyola's defending Mason-Dixon Conference basketball champions open with a 71-54 loss to Villanova. The Wildcats get 19 points from Paul Arizin (future Hall of Famer for the Philadelphia Warriors) while holding the Greyhounds' Jim Lacy, the nation's fifth-leading scorer last year, to five points.
