CHICAGO - The Orioles have a close connection to the inspiration behind the “Ice Bucket Challenge” that has swept the nation recently and raised awareness and funding for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. Bullpen catcher Jett Ruiz was a college teammate of former Boston College baseball player Pete Frates - a 29-year-old who has ALS and has been credited for fueling momentum of the challenge. It picked up steam in Boston after Frates challenged family and friends on social media and area athletes followed suit, later followed by numerous athletes and celebrities around the nation.

Maryland's 20-17 loss to Boston College surprised me - and not only because it came to a team that had lost five games in a row and had given up an average of 43.5 points in its four Atlantic Coast Conference games and ranks last in the conference in total defense. What surprised me was the way the Terps lost. I noted in my updated game story that - for the second week in a row - the Terps lost because their defense sagged at the end. This is the same defense that ranks 11 th in the nation in the FBS. But the defense surrendered six straight game-ending completions by quarterback Chase Rettig.

The Maryland women's basketball team normally won't encounter opponents that can match its height inside, but Thursday's game against Boston College was an exception. So instead of relying on brawn, the Terrapins used cunning and quickness for a 72-65 victory before 4,773 at Comcast Center. Diandra Tchatchouang scored a game-high 18 points for Maryland, which extended its school-record home-court winning streak to 48 games and moved to 10-0 against Boston College. The freshman forward made nine of 16 field-goal tries and added eight points and four assists to help the Terrapins win for the eighth time in 10 games.

COLLEGE PARK -- It seems long ago that Maryland coach Mark Turgeon grabbed a microphone at a preseason scrimmage and told fans: “I think we're going to be pretty darned good before it's done.” That was three-and-a-half months, 10 losses and two Pe'Shon Howard injuries ago. But, in defeating Boston College 81-65 Thursday night behind Terrell Stoglin's 24 points and James Padgett's strong second half, Maryland mostly played as if it can...

Dorenzo Hudson collected a loose ball under his basket and scored on a layup in the final seconds, lifting Virginia Tech over Boston College, 63-62, on Saturday. The ending was wild on the home floor of the Hokies (15-3, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference). The clock above the basket showed 9.2 seconds when Hudson scored, but the officials determined it had stopped before he scored and reset it to five seconds. Reggie Jackson took the inbounds pass for the Eagles (11-9, 2-4), but he never got the final shot off. Hudson led the Hokies with 18 points, and Malcolm Delaney (Towson Catholic)

There's a generations-old adage in basketball that might go all the way back to the invention of the jump shot. If your outside shot is not falling, drive the ball to the basket with hopes of getting a layup, a dunk or even a couple of free throws. Maryland's inability to hit its outside shots over the past four games has only been compounded by the fact that the Terps have also missed their share near, at, or even over the rim. What has made it even worse is that second-year coach Mark Turgeon's team has not been to the foul line as much as he'd like and they need.

On Boston College running back Andre Williams ' first carry Saturday, he rushed for 3 yards. On his second carry, he went around the left end for 31. On his third carry, he went around the right end, secured the ball in his right hand, raised his left and waited for Will Likely to approach. That play ended with a 30-yard gain and, probably, a bad headache. To recap: three carries, 64 yards and one stiff arm heard 'round college Park, all in one drive. Update: Williams finished the game with 263 yards on 32 carries.

Terps sophomore Taylor Cummings will square off against the Division I career leader, Alyssa Leonard, who has 424 draw controls over her four years. Cummings has 210 for her career. Whichever team wins the draw will control the pace of Friday night's game, which is critical to moving on to Sunday's national championship. The No. 1-seeded Terps , who average 14.82 goals per game, like to attack quickly, while Northwestern, averaging 11.05 goals, prefers a slower-tempo, settled approach.
