Former NBA All-Star and current Washington Mystics coach Michael Adams interviewed yesterday for one of the vacant Maryland basketball assistant coaching positions, a source said.

Adams played three seasons under Terps coach Gary Williams at Boston College. The Eagles went to two NCAA tournaments and one National Invitation Tournament with Adams at point guard.

"[Adams is] very close with Gary," the source said. "[Gary] is a very loyal guy. He had great success with him at BC."

Top North Carolina-Charlotte assistant Rob Moxley is expected to be selected by Williams for the other assistant coaching vacancy. Former Maryland standout Keith Booth is the other Maryland assistant.

Meanwhile, Loyola coach Jimmy Patsos said yesterday that his assistant Terrell Stokes interviewed for the Maryland job "for some experience, but he's staying here."

Adams, 43, was selected in the third round of the 1985 NBA draft by the Sacramento Kings. He spent 11 seasons in the NBA with the Kings, Washington Bullets, Denver Nuggets, and Charlotte Hornets, averaging 14.7 points and 6.7 assists.

Adams made at least one three-pointer in 79 consecutive games, second all-time behind Dana Barros (89). He was chosen to the Eastern Conference All-Star team as a member of the Bullets in 1992.
