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.

CHARLOTTE,  N.C. -- Growing up outside Boston, Maryland forward Evan Smotrycz was - and is - more of a pro sports fan than college fan. But his affection for the Terps started long before he transferred from Michigan before last season. It started early, when Smotrycz played a college basketball video game that featured Steve Francis on the cover. He always chose Maryland, because of Francis. Francis dominated the video games Smotrycz played more than he did during his one year in College Park.

ATLANTA - Gary Williams has never had an easy time saying goodbye to his seniors. He usually cries after giving them a final sendoff at Maryland's annual men's basketball postseason banquet, and count on Williams to let the tears flow when that time comes next month. After all, look where the older guys have taken the old coach. As the Terrapins prepare for their second straight splash in the NCAA tournament's Final Four, beginning with tomorrow night's semifinal date with Kansas, they are fortified by a veteran squad led by a senior class that Williams has called the best ever to grace the university.

When the Maryland men's basketball team won its national championship 10 years ago, it was uniquely different than a lot of those won during that era. The Terps , who finished 32-4 in 2001-02, had no superstars on the roster, and three of the starters - center Lonny Baxter, guard Juan Dixon and forward Byron Mouton - were seniors, a rarity then and even more so now. It was a collection of role players led by the gritty, veteran trio...

RALEIGH, N.C. - Maryland said yesterday that it is reviewing whether any improper contact was made with high school basketball star Lance Stephenson, a prized recruit who visited the College Park campus in January. The Washington Post reported yesterday that Stephenson, from Brooklyn, N.Y., visited Under Armour, the Baltimore sports apparel company headed by a prominent Maryland graduate, Kevin Plank, during an official visit that included a January game at Comcast Center. The newspaper cited industry sources saying Under Armour hoped to forge a relationship with Stephenson - assuming he makes it to the NBA - as it builds its basketball shoe business.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - After a 1-for-11 shooting performance during Maryland's victory over Georgetown, Terence Morris promised to deliver a first-rate performance against Stanford. He got off on the right foot and overcame foul trouble to have a solid day, with 11 points and 10 rebounds, and helped to negate Stanford's twin big men, Jarron and Jason Collins. The key yesterday was getting started right, and Morris did that by knocking down a three-pointer from the right wing on Maryland's first possession, 19 seconds into the game.

COLLEGE PARK -- There isn't a bull's eye on the chest of Maryland basketball this season.The Terps no longer have Steve Francis, who lived up to the hype and was the second player chosen in the NBA draft. Coach Gary Williams also must replace two other draft selections and a three-year starter at the point, and Maryland, without a senior in the bunch, isn't a topic of national discussion like it was last October."I love that," said Juan Dixon, the sophomore guard out of Calvert Hall. "Last year teams came after us. This year we have to go after some other teams.

Prediction: Duke has the edge in experience, and you never have to wait long for one of its offensive outbursts. But there's something about the Terps' confidence that makes Maryland look especially dangerous. The Terps do not fear Duke. That's why they'll win tonight, 88-84. How the teams match up Point guard Steve Blake vs. Jason Williams Steve Blake, Maryland: Blake is as good as any distributor of the ball, although he still is prone to taking ill-advised chances and committing turnovers as a result.

If there was a trivia game about the history of Maryland basketball, Mike Grinnon would likely be a stumper to the question: who is the only men's player in school history to play on both a national championship team and an ACC tournament champion? Grinnon was a little-used freshman during the 2001-2002 season that culminated with Maryland's NCAA men's basketball title. Though his playing time increased marginally over the next three years, Grinnon is remembered for the free throws he hit to help beat Duke in Greensboro, N.C., as a junior.

They left the University of Maryland without acrimony, disappointed that their playing time on the basketball court was limited, but not bitter toward the coaching staff that kept them sitting through most of the games. Now, Andre Collins and Hassan Fofana are playing a new game. Waiting. Until next season. They are still sitting at Loyola, adhering to an NCAA Division I redshirt rule that makes transfer players ineligible for competition for a year. To both, it is excruciating, yet enlightening.

BOSTON - Like a singer getting an audition at Carnegie Hall, Mike Mardesich so wanted things to go perfectly last week during his tryout for the big time in the NBA's Shaw Summer Pro League. Mardesich's performance with the Washington Wizards' team of rookies, young veterans and free agents was somewhere north of a lounge act and somewhere south of Pavarotti, meaning his path to the bright lights of an NBA arena probably got a little longer. "Personally, I don't think I'm doing so great," said Mardesich after Saturday's game, in which he went scoreless, missing all six shots in 16 minutes, with one rebound.

COLLEGE PARK - Byron Mouton is about to be unleashed, and his freedom promises to create a new headache in the Atlantic Coast Conference. No longer is Mouton trapped in a stagnant program, toiling as a solid, yet relatively anonymous shooting guard. No longer is he merely making a name for himself at the University of Maryland as a player no one enjoys defending in practice. After transferring from Tulane, then sitting out last season with the Terrapins, Mouton is free to play the game that has driven him since middle school, on a high-profile stage on which he is burning to shine.

Gary Williams could sense the urgency among his players in mid-October, when the Maryland Terrapins gathered for their first week of practice and began building toward what would become the greatest men's basketball season in school history. The Terps had been galvanized months earlier, after recovering from a midseason slump that threatened to ruin them. They finally had combined their obvious talent with toughness and a sense of mission, and had ridden that resolve all the way to their first Final Four appearance.
