Hartford, Conn. — Women Hartford, Conn. -- With Marissa Coleman to her left and Laura Harper to her right on the Hartford Civic Center podium, Maryland point guard Kristi Toliver looked confident as she fielded questions about the Terps' second-round NCAA tournament game against Mississippi tonight.

Back in the locker room, however, Toliver appeared confused and hurt over being supplanted in the Maryland starting lineup by Sa'de Wiley-Gatewood after 49 straight starts as the Terps (28-5) attempt to repeat as national champions.
