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.

COLUMBIA, S.C. --The Maryland baseball team did what a lot of people didn't think was possible and, in the process, it became a most unlikely squad to enjoy a dogpile in Carolina Stadium. The Terps won the Columbia, S.C., regional of the NCAA tournament with a 10-1 victory over top-seeded South Carolina on Sunday night and advanced to the super regionals for the first time in school history. It's going to be an all-Atlantic Coast Conference affair as Maryland will travel to Charlottesville, Va., next weekend to face Virginia.

- Arriving at the site of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, Maryland swingman Dez Wells began thinking about the most memorable players - Juan Dixon, Jay Williams, Shane Battier - he had watched in the tournament as a young fan who was more than a little star struck. Years ago, Wells sent a letter to Williams, the former Duke star who was the tournament's most valuable player in 2000. Asked what the letter said, Wells, who is from Raleigh, N.C., replied with a sheepish smile: "I wish I could be like you. " That's the thing about the ACC tournament - its tradition has a way of energizing players, particularly the younger ones.

With a 5-3 win over No. 2 seed Florida State and Virginia's win Friday night over North Carolina, the Maryland baseball team secured its place in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament final, in its final year in the league. Freshman Mike Shawaryn threw seven shutout innings for the sixth-seeded Terps, who are making their first ACC tournament appearance since 2005. He allowed just two hits, and struck out six. Sophomore third baseman Jose Cuas drove in three runs, including two on a bases-loaded double in the third inning.

Baltimore Sun reporters Don Markus and Jeff Barker and and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on three topics from the past week in Maryland sports. Should Mark Turgeon have suspended Charles Mitchell? Don Markus:   When the news came out Thursday afternoon that Charles Mitchell is going to play Sunday against Virginia , I was not surprised. Not that I agree with Turgeon in this case. Having not been in the huddle when Mitchell, according to a source, had words with assistant coach Scott Spinelli late in the first half of Tuesday's win over Virginia Tech, I don't know what happened exactly.

For years, the Atlantic Coast Conference men's basketball tournament has had a distinctly North Carolina flavor, characterized by barbecue joints, sweet tea, Waffle House restaurants and southern drawls. As familiar as Maryland became with Greensboro (N.C.) Coliseum, the Terps - who play there Thursday against Florida State in their final ACC tournament before departing for the Big Ten - could never quite shake the sense that they were guests at somebody else's party. Maryland had its share of tournament success - winning titles in 1958, 1984 and 2004 - and its fans developed cherished road-trip traditions often involving golf, drinking, barbecued ribs, or all three.

This is the time of year when college basketball fans attempt to forecast the teams in the NCAA tournament brackets as if filling in words in a crossword puzzle. Predicting and seeding the 68-team field may be an entertaining pastime for fans - and a lucrative one for pundits - but it's not a practice Maryland coach Gary Williams says he's engaging in with his Terps team. What would be the point? Williams and his players know as well as anybody that Maryland - which plays its final regular-season road game against Miami on Wednesday night - is a long shot to advance to the NCAA tournament for the third straight season.

Maryland basketball coach Gary Williams is expected to be released from the hospital within the next two days -- possibly by today -- but assistant Billy Hahn will continue to coach the Terrapins through this week's Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.Williams has been at the Washington Adventist Hospital in Takoma Park since last Tuesday, when he was admitted with pneumonia. Williams' condition was upgraded from fair to good Sunday. Those who have seen Williams, who turned 50 Saturday, say that he is progressing.

Maryland baseball coach John Szefc paused and looked forward, trying to articulate just how special it was to be part of the Terps ' first NCAA tournament team in 43 years. Szefc was just 4 years old when Maryland lost its first two games in Gastonia, N.C., in the 1971 national tourney. "It's kind of hard for me to wrap my mind around that," Szefc said. Since then, the program has endured 27 losing seasons in 43 years, failing to compete with perennial Atlantic Coast Conference powerhouses such as North Carolina State, Georgia Tech, Virginia and Florida State.

Today is going to be tough, Baltimore. Really tough. But as we struggle to turn the engine over and begin a new (albeit short) week, let's take solace in the weekend we had both in our lives and in local sports. This is the Coffee Companion, where every weekday morning, we recap the local sports headlines. - Jonathan Schoop hit a pair of home runs and new catcher Nick Hundley drove in a run in the 10th to give the Orioles a fifth extra-inning win this year . Peter Schmuck said their abilities close and late make them like the 2012 team , though that squad didn't have to deal with what appear to be legitimate struggles for Chris Tillman . - I was out at Delmarva all weekend to see the Shorebirds, and will have some updates on that young talented team later in the week.

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.

By virtue of having a higher seed, sixth-seeded Notre Dame was considered the home team in Saturday's NCAA tournament semifinal against seventh-seeded Maryland and wore its white jerseys at M&T Bank Stadium. But with the Terps playing about 45 minutes away from their campus in College Park, the stadium had a decided “Fear the Turtle” vibe to it, and the feeling was not lost on Fighting Irish coach Kevin Corrigan. “We were up at Hofstra last week [for the quarterfinals], and I think there were 37 people cheering for us in a sellout crowd of 13,000,” Corrigan quipped, referring to fans pulling for Albany. “I wanted to come to the press conference afterwards and say I apologize to all those people who wanted to see Albany here right now because it was clear that there weren't a lot of people rooting for us. We kind of just kept that mentality this week. Quite honestly, it's kind of funny.

Maryland owns a 5-2 advantage in this series, but Notre Dame boasts the most recent win in a 6-5 decision on April 25 en route to capturing the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament crown. The Terps are making their third appearance in the NCAA tournament semifinals in the last four years, while the Fighting Irish are in the Final Four for the third time in five seasons. Seventh-seeded Maryland (13-3) has won three straight games since that surprising loss in the ACC tournament. The program is 11-10 in the semifinals and advanced to the title game in 2011 and 2012.

The Maryland and Notre Dame men's lacrosse teams entered the season having met five times in their histories. On Saturday, they will face each other for the third time in just over a month. The Terps (13-3), who are the seventh seed in the NCAA tournament, won the first meeting, 12-8, on April 19. But six days later, the Fighting Irish (11-5), the sixth seed, returned the favor with a 6-5 decision in an Atlantic Coast Conference tournament semifinal that launched the team to its first tournament championship.

At 6-7, Virginia's only hope for avoiding its first absence from the NCAA tournament since 2004 is upsetting No. 4 Maryland this Friday and then disposing of either No. 1 Duke or No. 2 North Carolina on Sunday to capture the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. The Cavaliers figure to be downright ornery as they fight for their postseason lives, and coach John Tillman acknowledged that he is worried about the Terps (9-2) matching their opponent's intensity at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill, N.C. “That's certainly a concern,” he said during his weekly conference call Tuesday.

Maryland's national women's lacrosse semifinal with Northwestern on Friday pits two of the top draw control experts. Terps sophomore Taylor Cummings will square off against the Division I career leader, Alyssa Leonard, who has 424 draw controls over her four years. Cummings has 210 for her career. Whichever team wins the draw will control the pace of Friday night's game, which is critical to moving on to Sunday's national championship. The No. 1-seeded Terps , who average 14.82 goals per game, like to attack quickly, while Northwestern, averaging 11.05 goals, prefers a slower-tempo, settled approach.
