COLLEGE PARK - After the program's most one-sided defeat in 20 years, the Maryland football team will try to show it has a short memory when the Terps play Virginia on Saturday at Byrd Stadium. Coming off a 63-0 demolition at Florida State that cost Maryland (4-1, 0-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) its chances of an unbeaten season, its spot in the Top 25 and likely senior quarterback C.J. Brown for at least one game, the Terps return home to face the Cavaliers, who are trying to exorcise their own recent demons.

After several early season blowouts, the Cavaliers, showed they know how to win a close one when freshman forward Alexis Phillips scored with 2:50 remaining in the first half. Like any other coach, Archbishop Spalding's Leslee Brady is OK with a lopsided victory. Brady has grown accustomed to seeing the Cavaliers win in such a manner this season, considering they were outscoring opponents, 60-11, entering Wednesday's Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference game against visiting McDonogh.

Ask those who know Archbishop Spalding quarterback Zach Abey for one adjective to describe him and "tough" will be the most common response. A talented, durable two-way football player, Abey is also a champion wrestler and a rugby player. At 6 feet 2, 205 pounds, he can take a pounding and keep on going. When coach Kyle Schmitt took over the Cavaliers program last summer, he said: "Everything goes through Zach. " The No. 13 Cavaliers are 4-1 overall and 1-0 in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference after Abey ran for three touchdowns in Friday's 21-10 win over Loyola.

The purple band on Kyle Schmitt's wrist shows just how much the new Archbishop Spalding football coach respects the Cavaliers' past as he shapes their future. Schmitt, who left a strong Atholton program to take over the rising Cavaliers, has made a lot of changes on the field since Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association football practice began Aug. 5. Off the field, he's letting the players take the lead. He wants them to be as comfortable as possible with the transition from interim coach Brian Propst, who successfully carried on the program after Mike Whittles lost his 16-month battle with pancreatic cancer last summer.

Alex Len was 13 years old, a gangly teenager whose body had been shooting up a startling pace from a young age. As he practiced gymnastics at a local school in the small, rural coal-mining town in Ukraine where he lived, Len was motioned over by a basketball coach walking by the room. "He told me, 'You don't belong there,'" Len recalled with a smile one afternoon last week. The coach invited him to practice with the basketball team. Having been told he was too tall for gymnastics and soccer, Len soon embarked on a journey that could reach a remarkable crossroad Thursday night, some seven years later and thousands of miles from where he lived with his mother, older sister, grandparents and an aunt.

There was some thought that Alex Len's stock could have gone up even higher had the former Maryland center been able to attend private on-court workouts for a number of NBA teams picking at or near the top of next week's NBA draft. It now appears that the 7-foot-1 Len could become the No. 1 pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers despite being sidelined since early April after undergoing surgery to repair a partial stress fracture in his left ankle. At least one mock draft has Len going ahead of former Kentucky center Nerlens Noel.

Mount de Sales went up by four goals again in the second half and Spalding tied the game again to force overtime.

The No. 8 Loyola boys lacrosse team used a balanced offense - four Dons scored twice - to beat No. 9 Archbishop Spalding, 12-2, on Saturday. Loyola (10-5, 3-3 Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference) led 5-1 at halftime and went on a 4-0 run in the third quarter to put the game out of reach. The visiting Cavaliers fell to 10-8, 0-6. Kevin Jackson, Tyler Llewellyn, Devin McNamara and Tim Nordbrook each scored twice for Loyola. The Dons will next have to fight two top teams on the road, No. 5 Gilman on Tuesday and No. 1 Boys' Latin on Friday, and finish at home May 7 against No. 4 Calvert Hall.

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.
