COLLEGE PARK -- If yesterday was any indication, the Maryland women's basketball team has officially committed its national championship to history, but not before returning to themes from last season in a 99-43 pasting of George Mason in the home opener.

The Terps, ranked No. 1 in virtually every national preseason poll, officially marked the 2005-06 title by unfurling a 12-foot banner under the center court scoreboard at Comcast Center, then they set about the business of getting another championship in a dominant performance before 8,345.
