Poklemba, 34, won a championship with an indoor league team in Harrisburg last season after being lured from retirement.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - The pained look Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson has worn for most of the past two months has had more to do with his recovery from knee replacement surgery than what he endured watching the Terps men's basketball team's disappointing season. The solemn look was there Thursday, but this time it had more to do with the Terps' losing another close game than with his new knee. Anderson, who signed Mark Turgeon to an eight-year contract after Gary Williams retired suddenly in March 2011, said he still has faith that the Terps will turn it around.
