At 6-7, Virginia's only hope for avoiding its first absence from the NCAA tournament since 2004 is upsetting No. 4 Maryland this Friday and then disposing of either No. 1 Duke or No. 2 North Carolina on Sunday to capture the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. The Cavaliers figure to be downright ornery as they fight for their postseason lives, and coach John Tillman acknowledged that he is worried about the Terps (9-2) matching their opponent's intensity at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill, N.C. “That's certainly a concern,” he said during his weekly conference call Tuesday.

No. 5 Maryland maintains a 45-43 lead in the series with its Atlantic Coast Conference rival, but No. 13 Virginia has won seven of the past eight meetings. The Terps (6-1 overall and 1-1 in the conference) entered the week ranked second in Division I in scoring (14.0 goals per game), but have averaged just nine goals in their past two contests. The Cavaliers (5-4) have lost three straight games for the first time since 2004 and four of the past five. This is Virginia's first game in the ACC this season.

Maryland rediscovered itself Saturday, and Virginia is still searching. Terps attackman Jay Carlson scored three goals, and the No. 5 Maryland men's lacrosse team - behind a dominating midfield that scored five times - held on for a 9-7 victory over No. 13 Virginia in front of an announced crowd of 5,226 at Klockner Stadium. The Terps (7-1), who suffered a 10-8 upset loss to North Carolina on March 23, showed no side effects of that loss. Besides Carlson's three goals, offensive midfielders John Haus added two and Mike Chanenchuk had one. But the surprise of the day was long-pole midfielder Jesse Bernhardt's two goals, which showed how the Terps controlled the pace of the game and how quickly goalkeeper Niko Amato got the ball out on clears.

When Virginia opened the season with four consecutive wins - including a 13-12 overtime decision over Drexel - the program appeared to have recovered from the graduation losses of attackmen Steele Stanwick and Chris Bocklet and midfielder Colin Briggs, defenseman Matt Lovejoy and goalkeeper Rob Fortunato. Since then, however, the No. 13 Cavaliers have dropped four of their past five games and their last three, including a 15-8 setback at the hands of No. 12 Johns Hopkins in the Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore Saturday.

The Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team took all the mystery out of the program's 85th meeting with Virginia. Scoring 11 of the game's first 12 goals, the No. 12 Blue Jays dominated the Cavaliers in a 15-8 victory that wasn't nearly as close as the final score suggested during the Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic at M&T Bank Stadium on Saturday. Johns Hopkins' impressive performance came after a 13-8 loss to No. 6 Syracuse on March 16. Both of the Blue Jays' losses this season have been to ranked opponents - against the Orange and to No. 11 Princeton, 11-8, on March 1. For at least one day, the Blue Jays (6-2)

Johns Hopkins has dominated this series, winning 53 of 82 contests and the last two. No. 13 Virginia (5-3) has dropped three of its last four games, but the offense ranks sixth in Division I in scoring with a 12.9 average. The Cavaliers have unearthed a quarterback in junior attackman Nick O'Reilly, who leads the team in assists (16) and points (30) after redshirting last season. The No. 12 Blue Jays are 5-2, but they are 0-2 against ranked opponents. Johns Hopkins boasts an offense tied for fourth in scoring and is getting plenty of possessions via senior faceoff specialist Mike Poppleton, who has won 71.1 percent (96-of-135)

Jade Scaife Archbishop Spalding, senior, forward The toughest player to defend on the No. 1 team, Scaife led the Cavaliers to a 29-2 record and the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship. "She rose to the occasion in the biggest games," Archbishop Spalding coach Bookie Rosemond said. The 6-foot forward averaged 13.5 points and 10.5 rebounds and had 18 double doubles. She had 28 points and 18 rebounds in a double-overtime win, 70-57, over nationally ranked Riverdale Baptist.

COLLEGE PARK - The regular season's biggest game was approaching, and Maryland coaches had scrawled the words "Play with Passion" and "Play with Pride" on the blackboard inside Comcast Center. Head coach Mark Turgeon assembled the players, telling them the matchup with No. 2 Duke later that day presented the opportunity to finally claim the "signature win" that had eluded them this season. The Terps didn't disappoint, upsetting Duke, 83-81, in what seemed like a breakthrough victory on Feb. 16 - until they went out three days later and lost at Boston College, flattening the upbeat mood and squandering their hard-earned momentum.

When a program captured five national championships - most recently in 2011 - it's almost impossible to be ignored. But that's how Virginia has been feeling this season. Despite a 5-1 record, the No. 13 Cavaliers have been coasting through February and March without much media scrutiny or fanfare. And that doesn't bother coach Dom Starsia one bit. “This is a year in which we're better served to be able to work on ourselves for a while before we step out,” he said Friday morning.

Tavi Thomas ended the Oakland Mills dream of a perfect season Thursday night. Thomas drilled a 3-pointer with nine seconds left that gave visiting Calvert a come-from-behind 69-67 victory over No. 6 Oakland Mills in the Class 2A South region championship. Oakland Mills entered the game as the only unbeaten public school team left in the state - for boys - and the Scorpions finished with a 24-1 record. Oakland Mills was trying to make the state final four for the first time in 12 years, and a state championship would have meant the Scorpions did it with a perfect record.
