It all still lives in Larry Gibson — the warm lights of Cole Field House, the coaching assistant who told him to remember "1, 2, 3, swish" before free throws, his shots that beat No. 1 Notre Dame and sent Maryland fans streaming onto the court on Super Bowl Sunday 1979. It is through pulsating, basketball-filled nights — through memories of sweat and rebounds and cheerleaders and fight songs — that Gibson, now 55, returns to his aging teammates in fleeting moments.

Sun columnist Mike Preston weighed-in on the NFL lockout yesterday. He wrote about the skyrocketing costs of gasoline, the tsunami in Japan and the rising national debt. His point was simple: There are things in life more important that millionaire athletes bickering with billionaire owners. There are things in life more important than sports.  President Obama, it seems, has a different take. Instead of spending every waking hour concerning himself with America's stagnant economy or whether the U.S. should take action against Libya, Obama has been spending his time researching college basketball to make his March Madness picks  for a segment on ESPN.

They have survived badly sprained ankles and torn knee ligaments, mild concussions and more than their share of poor shooting days. Ralph Piersanti, one of the oldest in a group, has had two heart attacks. But they keep playing a game that used to be thought of for mostly younger men and women. Three times a week, more than two dozen men in their 60s, 70s and even a few like Piersanti, in their 80s, typically show up at the Bykota Senior Center in Towson - normally thought of as a place for more placid activities such as bingo and line-dancing - to play basketball.

Thank you, Lady Terps , for bringing me back to the game. I've been gone a long time. Eighteen years, in fact, and I never thought I'd be back. I let my last jump-shot fly off my fingertips back in 1996. And I haven't touched a basketball since. I don't recall whether that final shot swished, bricked, toilet-bowled or something in between. I don't recall whether I managed to block a few shots (likely, given my monkey arms), how many times coach bellowed at me to box out (many, I am certain)

Maryland basketball fans had been clamoring all throughout the team's disappointing 17-15 season for third-year coach Mark Turgeon to do a makeover of the roster before the program joined the Big Ten. On Tuesday, what seemed like pure mid-winter fantasy became reality when three players - junior guard Nick Faust (City), sophomore center Shaquille Cleare and freshman point guard Roddy Peters - were granted their release to transfer. The moves came as Turgeon also prepared for the departure of assistant coach Scott Spinelli, who is expected to be named to a similar position at Boston College later this week.

Maryland's lack of any inside presence at both ends of the court was a large part of its disappointing 17-15 season. Trying to rectify that, the Terps have added Slovakian 7-footer Michal Cekovsky, who spent last season playing at a basketball academy in the Canary Islands. According to a source familiar with Maryland's recruiting, Cekovsky will be eligible to play in the 2014-15 season. "He can really, really play," the source said. Cekovsky will join a recruiting class that already includes 7-foot-1 Trayvon Reed, who moved from his home outside Atlanta to play his senior year at Life Center Academy in Burlington, N.J. That class, led by McDonald's All-American Melo Trimble, is currently ranked 14th in the country by ESPN.com.

Even before he took Maryland to its first Final Four in 2001 and led the Terps to their only national championship the following season, Gary Williams had long been a respected member of the college coaching fraternity. On Monday, that opinion was validated when Williams was selected to join the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Williams, 69, will be inducted along with longtime NBA commissioner David Stern, former NBA stars Alonzo Mourning and Mitch Richmond as well as former Arkansas coach Nolan Richardson and former Indiana Pacers coach and commentator Bob “Slick” Leonard in Springfield, Mass., in August.
