NHL Kolbe out, Hershey's Walton in as radio voice of Caps John Walton , the former voice of the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League, has been chosen to become the Washington Capitals' new radio play-by-play announcer. Walton, 38, replaces veteran Steve Kolbe , who is not being brought back after 14 seasons in Washington. Kolbe, who was born in Highlandtown, was raised near Catonsville and attended Mount St. Joseph, had been working on a year-to-year contract with the Caps but was informed in July that the team planned to open the position to others.

Dez Wells could joke about the turnovers now. It was easier to digest the five miscues - and the good-natured, locker-room scolding he got from his coach - after the sophomore topped his career high in points for the second straight game as Maryland survived a quick and gritty George Mason team, 69-62, on Sunday in the BB&T Classic. Wells scored 25 points as Maryland (6-1) overcame 19 turnovers to win its sixth straight game in front of an announced 10,256 fans at the Verizon Center.

We haven't done a caption contest in a while, but we have a perfect storm for one this Halloween. The Ravens cheerleaders on Sunday continued their annual tradition of wearing Halloween costumes at M&T Bank Stadium , though I am sad to report that none were dressed up as a hot dog this year ( I'm sure I deserve most of the blame for that ). And we just received tickets to watch Mark Turgeon and his new-look Maryland men's basketball team play Notre Dame at the BB&T Classic at Verizon Center on Sunday, December 4, 2011.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and intern Connor Letourneau (The Diamondback's co-sports editor and men's lacrosse beat writer) weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. Should Maryland play basketball games every year in Baltimore? Don Markus: I was surprised to read that Maryland hasn't played in Baltimore since 1999 , and that has to change. If the Terps can find their way to Washington each season for the BB&T Classic, I think they should also go north each season (or at least every other year)

COLLEGE PARK - -It was around this time last season that Maryland stunned Michigan State - an important early-season victory that was to later aid the Terps' case for advancing to the NCAA tournament. Those sorts of opportunities - big-time, nonconference games - don't come along too often. But the Terps (5-2) have just that sort of game tonight at Verizon Center against undefeated and third-ranked Villanova (7-0) in the BB&T Classic. Villanova has three guards - Scottie Reynolds, Corey Fisher and Corey Stokes - averaging double-figure scoring.

Baltimore hasn’t hosted a Maryland basketball game since November 1999. But new men’s basketball coach Mark Turgeon, who has already started to beef up his recruiting presence in Baltimore by meeting with city officials, is interested in bringing the Terps back to Baltimore if the university can swing it financially. Maryland plays in Washington every year in the BB&T Classic at Verizon Center, but Turgeon recently said that he hopes to play annually in both Baltimore and Washington or alternate years if that isn’t feasible.

Mark Turgeon has spent the first two months of his inaugural season at Maryland talking honestly about his basketball team, more often than not criticizing his players for a lack of effort or understanding of what he was trying to teach at practice. After the Terps held on to beat Cornell Tuesday night at Comcast Center after blowly nearly all of a 23-point first-half lead, Turgeon showed plenty of frustration but finally demonstrated a little restraint when I asked him if Maryland looked like a 10-3 team to him. “I'm not going to tell you what I think,” Turgeon said, a response that drew laughter in the press room given his habit of telling reporters exactly what he is thinking.

On paper, Maryland's two biggest wins this season have come against Notre Dame and Miami. The 78-71 win over the Irish at Verizon Center in the BB&T Classic gave the fans hope for this season, but it came against a tired team on the back end of a West Coast trip trying to figure out how to play the rest of the season without its leading scorer. The 75-70- win over the Hurricanes on Tuesday night at Comcast Center came against a team that had won six of its past eight games and had beaten Duke in Durham, N.C., two weeks ago. The team the Terps were facing, and the way they came back by scoring 10 straight points in a game-closing 14-4 run, was the reason their win over Miami was the first signature win of the Mark Turgeon era. Here are some thoughts about how things played out: If the win over the Irish showed Terrell Stoglin's talents as a big-time scorer, the win over Miami showed that the sophomore point guard is buying into Turgeon's season-long struggle to turn his best player into a team player.

Byron Mouton has often had to reinvent himself. A big scorer in high school in Louisiana who turned into more of a defensive stopper during his two seasons at Maryland, Mouton tried to start an online basketball apparel company while finishing his professional career in China three years ago. "I called it '6th Man For The True Fan,'" Mouton recalled recently. "People could take any jersey and we'd put their name on it. But after I came back to Maryland after the season, the business connection I had for the fabric in China went away.

If he is to sleep well at night, Maryland coach Mark Turgeon says he desperately needs his young team to do all the little things such as boxing out and getting back consistently on defense. But the coach knows that there will be games such as Sunday's when what he also needs is a heavy dose of Terrell Stoglin simply being Terrell Stoglin. Stoglin scored 31 points, one shy of his career high, and hit a key basket with 13 seconds remaining as Maryland held on for a 78-71 victory over Notre Dame in the BB&T Classic at Verizon Center.

COLLEGE PARK -- The Maryland basketball team called Sunday's loss a wake-up call. Maybe the Terrapins had the phone off the hook. Tired and disjointed in its third game in four days, Maryland struggled through regulation before leaning on its leaders once again. Terence Morris and Juan Dixon combined for 10 of the Terps' 14 points in overtime as No. 21 Maryland persevered for a 76-65 win over pesky Winthrop last night before a small gathering of 10,107 at Cole Field House.
