Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. How effective  was freshman Roddy Peters in his first ACC game? Jeff Barker: He was good. But he can be better. Here are some observations about the point guard: -- Peters is particularly strong in the open court where he can use his speed. But he is not a reluctant player in the half court. He tries to penetrate off the dribble even when covered.

Mark Turgeon and Nick Faust have long seemed linked. The Maryland coach and the guard arrived in College Park at the same time. Turgeon had to “re-recruit” Faust, who had originally committed when Gary Williams was still the coach. Turgeon has seemed to make a public effort to treat the junior well. It probably doesn't hurt Faust's treatment that he is from Baltimore, a city the Terps want to claim -- as much as possible -- as their own. Turgeon brought Faust along on an Inner Harbor cruise with boosters last summer.

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Last year, the  Maryland  men's basketball team won just two  Atlantic Coast Conference  games on the road. It won one the season before. Nobody needs to tell the  Terps  how elusive road victories can be. Thursday night's game at  Boston College  presented a prime opportunity for Maryland to pick up a much-needed, feel-good win and begin to gain a foothold on a season that hasn't started as many had hoped. After losing a 12-point lead, the  Terps  rallied in the second half for an 88-80 victory over the Eagles at Conte Forum behind a career-high 33 points from wing Dez Wells.

The Dez Wells point guard experiment is not over. But Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said today that freshman Roddy Peters is the team's best option at the position. “Roddy is our best point guard offensively, and he's getting better defensively,” Turgeon told reporters as the team prepared for Thursday night's game at Boston College - the season's first Atlantic Coast Conference contest. “I loved the way he finished the [George Washington] game. He stepped up and made those free throws like he was just shooting in the park or shooting in an empty gym. " Wells was pressed into service at point guard when sophomore Seth Allen broke his foot before the season.

It seemed like a perfect plan. Maryland coach Mark Turgeon would start the 2013-14 season with sophomore Seth Allen at point guard and bring Roddy Peters off the bench to help the freshman get adjusted to the speed and physicality of the college game. Eventually, Turgeon would have to decide between the two, but given Allen's ability as a player who could score in bursts, it seemed that the Terps would ultimately go with Peters at the point and Allen at his natural wing position.

Maryland, Syracuse, Pittsburgh and Boston College are in the mix for the Military and AdvoCare V100 bowls, according to bowl officials. But the games won't make their picks of the Atlantic Coast Conference schools until the weekend.   “We won't know until Sunday,” said Steve Beck, president and executive director of the Military Bowl, which will be held Dec. 27 in Annapolis. The AdvoCare V100 Bowl  -- which is Dec. 31 in Shreveport, La. -- also won't finalize its matchups until Sunday because “we have to see who the other bowls ahead of us are taking,” said Pesky Hill of the selection committee.

Maryland had just converted on fourth down and had the ball inside the red zone with a four-point lead midway through the fourth quarter. The Terps appeared headed to a victory over Boston College in their final Atlantic Coast Conference home game. But Maryland couldn't finish the drive. On first down from the Eagles' 11-yard-line, freshman running back Jacquille Veii was swarmed by tacklers after taking a handoff, and the ball was stripped. Boston College linebacker Steven Daniels recovered Veii's fumble, and the Eagles went on to score a key touchdown in their 29-26 win. Maryland was left to ponder its inability to close out a game that was clearly within its sights.

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.

COLLEGE PARK - This wasn't at all how Maryland had hoped and imagined its final home game in the Atlantic Coast Conference would end: with the opposing team rushing onto the field to celebrate a last-play victory and the dazed Terps trying to grasp what had just unfolded. In a game of jarring twists and turns, Boston College kicker Nate Freese converted a 52-yard field goal on the game's final play to lift the Eagles to a 29-26 victory on a frigid night at Byrd Stadium. Freese's game-winner came on a second chance.
