When Darnell Wright, 20, declared English as his major, the Chicago State University sophomore knew it would disappoint his parents. "My father wanted me to go into technology and get into a lucrative career," he said. "And when I told my mom, I knew it wasn't what she had hoped for me. At first I felt unsupported, but at the end of the day I had to make a decision on my own." Facing mounting college costs, students and their parents are confronting stark realities as they select their major fields of study.

COLLEGE PARK -- The Maryland Terrapins have been taking much more than they've been giving this holiday season. Last night -- against overwhelmed Chicago State -- was no exception. To say the No. 18 Terps started quickly simply wouldn't do it justice. They scored the game's first 22 points and needed only 4:30 to do it, getting a game-high 24 points from junior guard Juan Dixon and plenty of balance from the rest on their way to a feel-good, 117-55 win over the visiting Cougars before 13,506 at Cole Field House.

Oh, to be young and in ... hock. A stunning 111,000 adults age 25 and younger will file for bankruptcy this year, according to a projection by Harvard University bankruptcy expert Elizabeth Warren. Meanwhile, average credit-card debt among the under-25 set more than doubled in the decade leading up to 2001 and has been rising ever since. Throw in the group's penchant for spending on big-ticket electronics, rising college costs, an uncertain job market and dim long-term prospects for Social Security and it's little wonder Generation Y was dubbed Generation Broke in an October report for the New York public policy research group Demos.

COLLEGE PARK - The Maui Invitational, the overtime loss to Wisconsin and November in general is a distant memory for the Maryland Terrapins, particularly when the subject turns to rebounding. Since their 1-3 start, the 18th-ranked Terps have won six straight going into tonight's game against Chicago State at Cole Field House. One of the telling stats is the Terps' improved work on the boards: when they out-rebound their opponent they are 7-0 on the season. In their 93-67 win over UMBC on Dec. 13 and their 123-79 rout against Norfolk State on Saturday, the Terps out-rebounded both opponents by season-best plus-15 margins.
