CUMBERLAND -- A few steps inside the Allegany College gym, jerseys hanging near the ceiling represent 75 players who have gone on to play Division I basketball since 1971. Beckoning with their rich reds, whites, blues and golds, they explain why a city kid heads for the hills, wondering along the way, where am I going?"When we started hitting those mountains, I woke up," said Derrick Worrell, 20, a would-be star who recalls being roused by the uphill struggle through five mountain passes on the ride.

Oakland Mills senior Gionni Williams says he's always been a scorer, even from his earliest days playing basketball. Two weeks ago, the 6-foot guard made history, scoring a school-record 45 points in a 65-49 win over Reservoir, also setting a school mark with eight three-pointers. For the season, Williams averaged better than 21 points per game, helping the Scorpions more than double their win total of a year ago. Next, the 17-year-old plans to take his game to Allegany College in Cumberland, where he hopes to follow the likes of Steve Francis, Jamar Smith and Ryan Randle to a Division I program.

COLLEGE PARK -- Ryan Randle has a clear idea of the fight that awaits him. As one of the newcomers who have joined the Maryland men's basketball team, Randle figures he will have to fight for playing time, what with experienced frontcourt players such as Lonny Baxter, Tahj Holden and Chris Wilcox back after the Terps tasted the first Final Four trip in school history last spring. Then there is the challenge of adjusting to the game played at Atlantic Coast Conference speed. Randle, a junior forward-center from Allegany College, has had quite an introduction to the weight training and conditioning required to give him a chance at success.

Students living in four-person suites that are an easy stroll from classroom buildings, games of volleyball in a grassy courtyard and weekly programs run by resident advisers are all typical of campus life at four-year colleges and universities. But Michael Allen was pleased to find these amenities in an unexpected place: a community college in Cumberland. Allen, 26, moved west from Baltimore and lived off campus for a year after deciding to enroll in the forestry program at Allegany College of Maryland.

Looking back: The Terps took a 10-day break for final exams after beating Monmouth, 91-55, on Dec. 11. Looking ahead: Maryland faces William and Mary at home on Thursday, then opens its conference schedule at North Carolina State on Dec. 30. Of note: With a win over No. 22 Oklahoma tonight, Maryland will have beaten three ranked teams this season. The Terps did not beat their second ranked team last season until Feb. 17 at Wake Forest. Worth watching: Ryan Randle on the boards. The junior backup center who transferred from Allegany College is making the most of his 7.6 minutes a game by averaging three rebounds.

COLLEGE PARK - As the late signing period for men's college basketball recruits begins today, the University of Maryland remains in a wait-and-see mode regarding point guard Andre Collins, whom the Terps would like to add to a program just removed from its first trip to the Final Four. Collins, 5 feet 9, failed to qualify academically at Maryland a year ago and is attending Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va., where he recently completed his basketball season. The Terps are awaiting the results of Collins' latest SAT test, which he took March 31. Collins projects as a backup to Steve Blake, who has two years of eligibility left and has been the starting point guard since his freshman year.

COLLEGE PARK - Forward Ryan Randle should be signing on the dotted line soon, shooting guard Michael Grinnon might not be far behind, and point guard Andre Collins will be joining the Terrapins as soon as his grades allow it. As the one-week fall signing period begins today for NCAA men's basketball recruits, sources said the University of Maryland is poised to give the three scholarships it has available for the incoming class of 2001-2002. The last scholarship, which the Terps had hoped to hand to blue-chip guard/forward Julius Hodge before he committed to North Carolina State last week, appears destined for Grinnon, a 6-foot-6, 195-pound guard/forward from St. Dominic's High School in Oyster Bay, N.Y. Grinnon, who visited Maryland last weekend, is considered a solid role player and an excellent shooter.

COLLEGE PARK -- When the Maryland Terrapins were about to enter last season's NCAA basketball tournament, a ride that would take them to the first men's Final Four in school history, coach Gary Williams said he had never coached a team with so many fresh legs in early March. Williams had one of the rare luxuries afforded any coach - two teams instead of one. Not only were the Terps the most successful postseason team ever at Maryland, but they also drew strength from a 10-man rotation that made them possibly the deepest team in the country.
