COLLEGE PARK -- In terms of height, Cedric Lewis stopped being Derrick Lewis' little brother during his junior year in high school. But from the standpoint of basketball ability, the current University of Maryland center has long fallen in the shadows of the former Terrapins star."

In the spring of 1989, an up-and-coming Division I basketball coach returned to his alma mater, leaving a prestigious job and a burgeoning national reputation behind. The coach was aware that his new program was about to be sanctioned by the NCAA for violations committed by his predecessor, but when the penalties hit nearly a year later, he was surprised by their severity. There were times Gary Williams second-guessed his decision to help rebuild a Maryland program still reeling from the scandal surrounding the cocaine-induced death of All-American Len Bias three years before, and the turmoil that enveloped the Terps during Bob Wade's tenure.

COLLEGE PARK -- Garfield Smith came to the University of Maryland from Coffeyville (Kan.) Junior College before this season with a reputation for offense. That assessment, and Smith's performance, proved nearly perfect last night.Smith, a 6-foot-6 junior forward, kept the Terrapins in their game against Southern Cal when guards Walt Williams and Matt Roe were struggling to find their shots. Smith continued to hit his, and it resulted in a 72-59 victory before 10,110 at Cole Field House.Williams led the Terps with his second-straight 20-point game, including 16 in the second half, but Smith's offense and Vince Broadnax's defense proved to be the difference for Maryland (2-0)

COLLEGE PARK -- Cedric Lewis has undergone a startling transformation as an offensive player since his freshman year at Maryland.When he first arrived, Lewis couldn't have put the ball in Chesapeake Bay if he had been standing on the bridge. His specialty was shooting bricks. There was no sign he would develop the shooting touch of his older brother Derrick, who was then the Terps' star.That was during the 1987-88 season. Cedric plodded along, laboring three years as a reserve and progressing primarily as a shot blocker.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Very little comes easy to a team like Maryland that is universally picked to finish last in the Atlantic Coast Conference and even whispered to go without a single league win.Last night's conference opener with Wake Forest would hardly have been easy, but it was there for the taking, like a tall glass of cold water in the middle of the desert.But the Terrapins (6-4) fumbled and kicked the glass all over the sand, dropping a thoroughly winnable game to the Demon Deacons, 74-62.

COLLEGE PARK -- We owe Cedric Lewis an apology. We do. We called him names. We laughed at his botched free throws and mangled offense. Some of us booed when he was substituted into games. All of us spouted the affront with which he has lived his sporting life: "He sure isn't as good as his brother."It doesn't happen anymore. None of it. No name-calling. No derisive laughing. No booing. Even gone are those relentless comparisons with his older brother, Derrick, for whom Cedric suddenly bears a striking on-court resemblance.
