On the day Alyssa Kreinschroeder's father told her he was being deployed to the Persian Gulf, he said he could be gone for a year. A year is a long time for a girl of 11 to imagine being away from her father, so Alyssa asked him: Was there any chance he'd come home sooner? Alyssa, the oldest of four kids, has always known she could ask her dad anything, and he'd tell her the truth. He'd been honest when her twin brothers were born prematurely, when doctors discovered her grandmother's heart problems, and when her mother, who is 30, was diagnosed last summer with a fast-moving cervical cancer that spread to her pelvis, her spine, her lungs and her brain.

Former Maryland forward Alyssa Thomas was anxious. She arrived in Uncasville, Conn. on Friday alone in preparation for the WNBA draft. Her family arrived at 2 a.m. Monday after a four-and-a-half hour car ride, joining their daughter for the final moments of her journey to the professional ranks. As Thomas sat in the draft room, her fate was completely out of her hands. But she didn't have to feel that way for long. Only three picks came and went before WNBA president Laurel Richie announced Thomas' name as the fourth overall selection to the New York Liberty.

Even in the desert of Kuwait, surrounded by the bravery of fellow soldiers, 1st Lt. Claus Kreinschroeder marvels at the fortitude of an 11-year-old girl. "She has never been shown anything but love," he says of his daughter, Alyssa. Maybe it's love that has enabled her to get through her mother's cancer, and now, her father's absence. Alyssa might not recognize her dad now, with his shaved head. But she knows the generosity and quick wit he has displayed here in a staging area called Camp Pennsylvania.

COLLEGE PARK - It was a test Maryland had not cared to take: Could the Terps advance in the NCAA tournament against physically intimidating Texas on a night when star forward Alyssa Thomas - playing the final home game of her career - could not muster a field goal in the first half?  But there the fourth-seeded Terps were, tied at halftime with the fifth-seeded Longhorns with Thomas having missed all five of her field-goal attempts and both of her foul shots. Aided by her "supporting cast," the Terps hung in until Thomas found her game in the second half - she finished with 16 points and 11 rebounds  -- and Maryland earned a rugged, 69-64 victory.

COLLEGE PARK -- His 13th-seeded Army team led Maryland by three points midway through Sunday's first half, but coach Dave Magarity was like a man anxiously awaiting a flood. During a timeout, Magarity told his players to brace themselves for the deluge he feared was coming from the taller, stronger Terps, who seemed jittery at the outset of the NCAA tournament first-round game. “They're going to be upset,” the coach recalled telling the Black Knights. Magarity's instincts proved correct.

COLLEGE PARK - It's a recurring scene this season: Relentless Maryland forward Alyssa Thomas is stretched out on the floor after tumbling for a loose ball or colliding with a defender. Her teammates reach to gingerly pull her up. But the real helping hand - and a critical one for Maryland's NCAA tournament fortunes - comes when her fellow Terps shoot well enough to prevent defenses from swarming the three-time Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year with impunity. Thomas is the undisputed leader of the fourth-seeded Terps (24-6)

One glance inside the Taylor house says it all. From the sign near the front door that reads, "I keep horses, not house," to the four horses trotting in a 6-acre back yard in a rural area of Bel Air near Deer Creek, it's not surprising to learn Nancy and Alyssa Taylor love horses. But calling them horse lovers would be an understatement. The mother-and-daughter team does something the average animal lover does not: save lives. The Taylors established the Royal Equine Rescue and Sanctuary Inc. in 2002 to rehabilitate and shelter horses that otherwise would have been sent to the slaughterhouse and sold for meat overseas.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - The eighth-ranked Maryland women's basketball team's final appearance in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament lasted but one game, with the Terps unable to overcome an unsightly first half that included turnovers and missed shots en masse, forcing them to chase futilely the rest of the way in a 73-70 loss to North Carolina on Friday night in the quarterfinals at Greensboro Coliseum. The third-seeded Terps, who are headed to the Big Ten next season, absorbed their earliest exit from the ACC tournament since 2010-11, when they lost in the quarterfinals as well.
