ATLANTA -- Gary Williams used the kind of lineup he was often forced to play at American University 15 years ago. Keith Booth displayed the quickness and strength that he hadn't shown in weeks. And the rest of the Maryland Terrapins played as they did earlier in the season.It wasn't always smooth last night against Georgia Tech at Alexander Memorial Coliseum, but a small lineup and a big game from Booth helped the 14th-ranked Terrapins to one of their most important victories of the season.

COLLEGE PARK -- The Maryland Terrapins hope to use the early part of their schedule for experiment and discovery. Though Gary Williams didn't do much experimenting in last night's season opener against Howard, he did make one important find.The Terps' coach found out that Brian Watkins wasn't as rusty as he previously believed.In the first half of a 93-55 rout of the Bison before 12,850 at Cole Field House, the 6-foot-9 transfer from Notre Dame showed flashes of what Williams and the Terrapins will need once they start playing against bigger, stronger and more talented teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

COLLEGE PARK -- Keith Booth scored 31 points and Rodney Elliott added 22 to power the White team past the Red, 94-68, in a Maryland intrasquad basketball scrimmage at Cole Field House yesterday.Coach Gary Williams placed an emphasis on conditioning, and got the dividends he sought in the 40-minute, five-on-five workout that was ragged at times."Conditioning- and effort-wise, we were good," Williams said. "Like everybody else, we're looking to get better execution."Exree Hipp and Terrell Stokes were held out of the scrimmage with injuries, leaving the Terps with just one extra player for the scrimmage.

Nobody knows the trouble UMBC's basketball team saw this season. Except for coach Earl Hawkins, that is, and his battle-scarred Retrievers. But that's all behind them.The Retrievers recovered from a season-long siege of injuries to win one game and a lot of respect in the East Coast Conference tournament at the Towson Center over the weekend. They sprung a 67-58 upset of Hofstra Saturday, then pressed defending champion Towson State to the final seconds before succumbing, 78-76. They finished the season at 7-22.

Forget big. UMBC thought small last night, and the downsized Retrievers ran past Central Connecticut State for a 91-80 victory that maintained their second-place standing in the East Coast Conference.For the second straight game, UMBC was without the services of sophomore center Sony Nixon, as its leading scorer and rebounder remained sidelined with a hip pointer. Reserve forward Dion Andrews was out with a back ailment, and for most of the game, coach Earl Hawkins used no one taller than 6 feet 5.Not to worry.

It was like something out of the twilight zone.All of a sudden last night, Jim Frantz started shooting jump shots like Larry Bird and the rest of the University of Maryland Baltimore County players followed his lead.Frantz, who didn't start last night because of a severe shooting slump (11 for 41 for 26.8 percent) in the past four games, came off the bench with nine minutes gone in the game and went on a shooting tear that resulted in a career-high 23 points.Frantz hit the first 11 shots he took from the field last night and carried UMBC to a 78-77 upset victory over Delaware in an East Coast Conference game before 1,265 at UMBC Fieldhouse.
