The Terps baseball team came up one game short in its bid to win an Atlantic Coast Conference tournament championship before departing for the Big Ten Conference. Maryland, which made it to the ACC tournament final for the first time since 1976, gave up six runs to Georgia Tech in the final three innings -- including three runs in the eighth -- in an 9-4 loss at NewBridge Bank Park in Greensboro, N.C. After beating Virginia and Florida State in the first two games of the tournament, the Terps lost to North Carolina on Saturday and the Yellow Jackets on Sunday.

COLLEGE PARK - The students danced on the field. The players defended their home. And the coaches beamed with pride. This win was worth savoring. "Until 12:01," Maryland offensive coordinator James Franklin said. And he's right. The Terps wake up today, fresh off yesterday's 17-15 come-from-behind win over No. 17 North Carolina, and have less than a week to decide how their season will end: dripping in orange juice or drowned in tears? As it concerns Maryland football, let's agree that educated, calculated predictions are about as accurate as a coin flip.

This year's NCAA Division I women's tournament looks more like the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament 2.0 than a national tournament. Six quarterfinalists hail from the ACC. Top-seeded and ACC champ Maryland, No. 2 Syracuse, No. 3 North Carolina, No. 6 Virginia, No. 7 Boston College and unseeded Duke come from what might've been the most dominant single season ever by a women's lacrosse conference. Three all-ACC quarterfinal matchups - Maryland vs. Duke, North Carolina vs. Virginia and Syracuse vs. Boston College - ensure that three-quarters of the Final Four will be from the ACC. If the seedings hold up through the title game, Maryland could meet Syracuse for the third time this season, having beaten the Orange in the regular season, 12-10, and in the ACC championship game, 13-7.

A sampling of columns from around the country this week: Never blame the owner Just as we were getting over a string of head-coach firings in the NFL, the stunning news came out of Denver on Tuesday that the Broncos' president, Pat Bowlen, had fired Mike Shanahan. Bowlen walked into Shanahan's office and, in the course of a five-minute conversation, ended a 14-year marriage. Why? After all, they had made pretty good music together, winning two Super Bowls. Perhaps Shanahan had become too entrenched.

Michael Sauers (Archbishop Curley) scored with just 13 seconds left in the first overtime period to lift the top-seeded and fourth-ranked Maryland men's soccer team (12-3-5) to a 1-0 victory over Clemson (11-6-2) in the Atlantic Coast Conference soccer semifinals Friday night in Boyds. The winning score followed a corner kick by Tsubasa Endoh  that players from both sides attempted the control. The ball caromed off the foot of Patrick Mullins, and Sauers punched his third career goal into the right side of the net to give Maryland the win. “Mikey Ambrose had a back-post cross off a clear and went to Dan Metzger, who brought it down nicely.

Fact: It makes quite a statement about the decline of pitching standards in the major leagues that Pat Dobson, the former Orioles 20-game winner who died Wednesday, had a losing lifetime record (122-129) over 11 seasons, but also had a lower career ERA (3.54) than 239-game winner Mike Mussina (3.63). Opinion: Just one question about the Orioles' predictably doomed pursuit of free-agent top dogs Alfonso Soriano and Carlos Lee: Why even bother? Oh, and one more question: How many years of being put off by the escalating free-agent market does it take for you to stop being put off by the escalating free-agent market?

Jonathan Dwyer rushed for 110 yards and two touchdowns, Josh Nesbitt accounted for three scores and No. 7 Georgia Tech clinched a spot in the ACC championship game by routing host Duke, 49-10, on Saturday. Orwin Smith returned a kickoff 83 yards to spark the slow-starting Yellow Jackets (10-1, 7-1). Their offense took over after that, scoring touchdowns on five of the following six possessions, rushing for 306 yards and shutting out the Blue Devils in the final three quarters. Nesbitt was 6 of 10 for 195 yards with touchdown passes covering 32 yards to Stephen Hill and 75 yards to Demaryius Thomas, and had a 2-yard touchdown run. Dwyer, the reigning ACC player of the year, had scoring runs of 3 and 13 yards in his fourth consecutive 100-yard game.

The Maryland Terrapins will have to settle for college football respectability this year, which isn't such a bad thing when you consider the lesser alternatives. It's not very satisfying, however, when your circumstances changed so dramatically in the space of a few months that the ACC championship game suddenly seemed to be within reach. That's where the Terps found themselves on Saturday night at Byrd Stadium, facing Florida State with a chance to advance into an Atlantic Division showdown with North Carolina State next week for a spot in the conference title game.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The style was different, but the method was the same for Duke, which again struck both early and late while racing to a 79-64 victory over Wake Forest yesterday in the semifinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference men's basketball tournament. A reluctant shooter, reserve freshman Daniel Ewing scored all eight of his points in the final 10 minutes for second-seeded Duke, a team that started fast and finished strong on its way into today's 1 p.m. final against North Carolina State.

Final No. 3 seed Duke (24-5) vs. No. 5 seed Georgia Tech (19-10) Time: 1 p.m. Where: MCI Center, Washington Key matchup: Duke's J.J. Redick and Georgia Tech's Will Bynum likely won't guard each other, but it will be interesting to see how they back up their 35-point performances yesterday. Redick is a shooter, and Bynum, generously listed at 6 feet, is a scorer who jumps over defenses. Daniel Ewing probably will guard Bynum, and several Yellow Jackets will be looking to slow Redick.
