Heading into the 25th Atlantic Coast Conference Women's Basketball Tournament, Maryland isn't exactly positioned where the Terrapins had expected to be when the season opened. After last season's late surge to an NCAA tournament bid, the Terrapins appeared ready to make their move in the ACC and on the national stage. They returned six starters, including injury redshirt Vicki Brick, and 11 of 12 letter winners. They had a No. 23 preseason national ranking and were predicted to finish as high as third in the ACC. Instead, the Terrapins (12-16)

The University of Maryland's women's basketball team, having just beaten the No. 1 ranked University of Virginia, is surely going to be rated No. 1 itself in the nation next week. That will be the first time in the program's history. Congratulations to Coach Chris Weller and her players. Coach Weller's program has long been well respected, and this team is going to make it more so. Maybe now they will even get some respect in terms of fans in the stands. There were 8,000 watching at Charlottesville, far more than the Terps are used to at home at College Park.

Her college jersey hangs from the rafters in the Comcast Center at the University of Maryland. Her name graces a road, Vicky Bullett Street, in her hometown in West Virginia. And on Saturday, her visage will light up the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame when Bullett is enshrined there in Knoxville, Tenn. It's an honor that Bullett, never one to tout herself, said she deserves. "I'm very modest, but I like finally giving myself a compliment," the former Terp and two-time Olympic medalist said.

Traditionally, the women's basketball team at the University of Maryland plays its best in the final month of the season. It's what coaches strive for but often don't get.In past years, with the exception of the only losing season under 16th-year coach Chris Weller (9-18 in 1984-85), Maryland has charged down the stretch. Counting the last dozen games for each of the previous 14 seasons, the team has won 70.2 percent (118-50) and earned a record eight Atlantic Coast Conference tournament titles.

COLLEGE PARK -- The sounds emanating from the University of Maryland women's basketball practice one recent afternoon at Cole Field House seem different from past seasons. The expressions on the faces of the players, as well as the one worn by their coach, seem to have changed, too.Sitting within a long three-point shot of the court, you can hear the thud of balls being bounced, the squeak of sneakers being broken in and the general enthusiasm that the anticipation of any new season brings.

Last-minute Christmas shopping for:* Boogie Weinglass -- A Baltimore team to call his own. Boogie's the kid who grew up worshipping his hometown Colts and Orioles and then made zillions selling jeans. Now he wants to own either team. How can you not love it?Our town hasn't exactly been a roaring success with out-of-town FTC sports ownership. What can say good about a man (Bob Irsay) whose own mother calls him "the devil on earth"?Fans are down on Eli Jacobs because he's reluctant to part with some of the millions his O's are raking in. Sports, if nothing else, should be fun and Jacobs is no fun. Most sports reporters -- including this one -- have never met him.Jerry Hoffberger, when he owned the Orioles, went through the stands in his red blazer, introducing himself to fans as if he were running for mayor.
