The Maryland men's basketball team came into Comcast Center on Wednesday night looking as if it took Abilene Christian as seriously as it did Division III Catholic in what turned out to be a 45-point exhibition game victory 10 days before. The Terps spent the better part of the first half - the first 25 minutes, really - playing at half-speed at both ends of the court. Maryland's best player, Dez Wells, passed all but five minutes of the first half on the bench. Mark Turgeon wanted to send a message.

The relationship between Maryland coach Mark Turgeon and Dez Wells has always been a little different from most others the Maryland coach has with his players. Turgeon didn't recruit Wells out of high school, but gave him a place to land after Wells was expelled - unjustly, as it turned out - from Xavier after his freshman year. A little more than a year into his career with the Terps, Wells is the most talented athlete on Maryland's young team, but the 6-foot-5 junior is still trying to find himself as a basketball player.

Denzel Richardson was “frustrated” when he didn't meet NCAA Division I qualifying standards coming out of Calvert Hall in 2012. But after committing to Eastern Kentucky last month, the former Cardinals star is convinced that “everything worked out for the best.” Richardson, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound shooting guard, was also recruited by Abilene Christian, Alabama State, Iona, LIU-Brooklyn, Montana State, North Dakota and UT-Martin....

Miami cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke posted the third-fastest time at the NFL scouting combine since 2000. Van Dyke, who met with the Ravens during the combine, ran the 40-yard dash Tuesday in 4.28 seconds. Over the past 12 combines, only East Carolina running back Chris Johnson (4.24 in 2008) and Houston cornerback Stanford Routt (4.27 in 2005) were faster. "Everybody here is fast," Van Dyke said during the combine, "but you have to be faster to stand out in the DB group. " At 6 feet, 168 pounds, Van Dyke was rated the 23rd-best cornerback prospect by Pro Football Weekly.

I was curious what Maryland coach Mark Turgeon was going to say with a day to reflect on Sunday's 90-83 loss to Oregon State at Comcast Center. Since Turgeon is not scheduled to talk with the media until Tuesday morning, I tuned in his weekly radio show to listen. Here were some of his observations: On his team's 1-2 start "It's not the way we wanted to start the season obviously, but we played a really good UConn team and came up one point short and last night we really didn't play well.

ST. THOMAS, Virgin Islands -- Charles Mitchell is admittedly a little biased when it comes to Maryland teammate Shaquille Cleare, but the sophomore forward who seems to be ready every game insists that Terps fans have yet to see the real Shaq, who has yet to look like a player that can be a significant contributor. “He's a great low-post scorer,” Mitchell said of Cleare earlier this week. “Him scoring in the low post like he should be this season, he will be during the season, will open up more on the wing for Jake [Layman]

Welcome to a second season of Morning Shootaround. We will follow the Terps throughout the 2013-14 season, but this year in this space we will provide a look ahead rather than looking back. We will try to analyze Maryland's strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of its upcoming opponent. We also hope to provide quotes and anecdotes from practices to give some idea of what Mark Turgeon and his team are doing. Here are a few things to look for as the 3-2 Terps get ready to play Providence (6-0)

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on three of the biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. Should Mark Turgeon keep Dez Wells at point guard, or should he move him back to the wing? Don Markus: When point guard Seth Wells broke his foot a couple of weeks ago, I assumed that Turgeon was going to move freshman Roddy Peters into a starting role. So did others, but Turgeon quickly text-messaged a few reporters to say that Wells would start Maryland's preseason game at the point, with Peters as his backup.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland point guard Varun Ram used to get stares from opposing guards who thought they could dominate him on the court. When he played at River Hill in Clarksville and with a Howard County-based Amateur Athletic Union team, Ram said few opponents would take him or his teams seriously. "I always got underestimated, even in Howard County," Ram recalled Tuesday. "It was like, 'Who's this small Indian kid? What are you doing? You look like a soccer player; why are you even playing basketball?
