COLLEGE PARK — COLLEGE PARK-- --Five years after coaching Maryland to the national championship, not much has changed for - or about - Gary Williams. At 62, he still can be combative and thin-skinned, and he usually is at his best when things appear at their worst.

MARYLAND VS. DAVIDSON Midwest Regional first round, HSBC Arena, Buffalo, N.Y.; Thursday, 12:20 p.m.; chs. 13, 9; 1300 AM, 105.7 FM Line: Maryland by 7
