Let's start with a premise: College basketball is suffering because some stars are leaving early for the pros and others are skipping college entirely and jumping straight from high school to the NBA.Can't really argue with that premise, can you?There's no doubt the college game would be more attractive with Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Stephon Marbury and Allen Iverson, to name just a few NBA stars who could still be playing in college if they'd chosen that route.But to those who suggest the college game is dying a slow death, please, calm down.

With the season starting a month from Tuesday, there's still plenty of time for Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon to settle on a starting lineup. Not that Turgeon hasn't been thinking about who will take the court at Xfinity Center for the opening tip against Wagner on Nov. 14. At a breakfast with boosters in Baltimore on Monday, Turgeon made one interesting pronouncement. “Damonte Dodd's maybe one of our most improved players,” Turgeon said of the 6-foot-11 sophomore from the Eastern Shore.

Preseason scrimmages are usually the time when lacrosse coaches send out many players to gauge who can contribute immediately and who might develop in the near future. That approach could extend into the regular season for John Tillman. The Maryland coach said he plans to spread playing time among a healthy number of players in Saturday's season opener against Mount St. Mary's at noon at Byrd Stadium in College Park in an effort to see who deserves to get significant time in upcoming games.

Goucher's struggles on defense this past spring could be traced to several sources, but one important factor may have been an upheaval in personnel. Before the season even began, the team learned that starting defenseman Paul Taylor, who had recorded 68 ground balls and 44 caused turnovers in 2012, had exhausted his eligibility. Sophomore short-stick defensive midfielder David Waligurski (18 GB, 5 CT) tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee in the fall and would sit out the entire campaign.

For Peter Baum, winning the Tewaaraton Award last year was a life-changer - both good and bad. When the Colgate attackman was named the top college player in June after an impressive junior season in which he racked up 67 goals and 30 assists, he called the honor "one of the proudest moments of my life. " Amid his struggles a season later, it would dawn on Baum why only one player has won the Tewaaraton twice since it was first awarded in 2001. "It's funny the way you look at it because this is an award that only one person has won twice.

HERE ARE some players who won't be at this weekend's Final Four: Amare Stoudemire, LeBron James and Dwight Howard. If they'd gone to college, they would be in their respective junior, sophomore and freshman years. Instead, they're doing their dunking in the NBA. But who needs them? Not college basketball. That's essentially what CBS analyst Billy Packer said yesterday. "When you look at the college game now, it has never been healthier," Packer said during a conference call. Packer argued that the steady defection of the nation's top high school talent directly to the NBA - as if they keep landing on those lucky spots in Chutes and Ladders that send you to the top - has rid college basketball of a privileged class of prima donnas.

Luke Shilling doesn't have a driver's license yet, but he is on the road to success in lacrosse. He probably still hasn't figured out how to shave, or whether McDonald's Crench fries taste better than those at Burger King. He still uses words like "awesome" and "wow" and he doesn't have a girlfriend. But at age 16 and yet to play one second in a high school lacrosse game for Boys' Latin, Shilling has already verbally committed to play college lacrosse at Johns Hopkins. Wow. Awesome.

FUMMM-BLLLE!No matter who you are or where, that word only sounds natural coming from ABC's Keith Jackson, the unchallenged voice of college football.Jackson, 65, begins his 28th season calling the action on the college game with Sunday's Kickoff Classic (Channel 13, 2 p.m.) between Nebraska and West Virginia at Giants Stadium.This season finds Jackson as folksy and as spry as ever, with more than a few opinions about his sport of choice and the direction it's headed.For example:* Jackson believes student-athletes who have taken college football scholarships, only to up and leave for the pro ranks at the first opportunity, are "mercenaries."

Aquille Carr isn't worried about the NBA draft Thursday night. After a journey from Baltimore to Beltsville to China to Delaware to New York City, the 20-year-old is excited to hopefully take a momentous step in his basketball career. The former Patterson star is not on any mock drafts and is not expected to be drafted, but that doesn't fluster him. "I'm not really stressing too much about the draft," Carr said. "I ain't really been thinking about it. I'll leave it in God's hands.

As usual, Maryland's high-scoring offense gets all the headlines, but the Terps'  Megan Douty drew the spotlight to the defense last week when she was named one of five finalists for the Tewaaraton Award. Rarely are defensive players selected for the college game's top individual prize. Over the last five years, only North Carolina's Amber Falcone (Winters Mill), a 2009 finalist, was a true defender. Northwestern's Taylor Thornton was perhaps best on the defensive end, but she played midfield when she was a 2012 finalist.

WASHINGTON -- The Big Ten men's basketball tournament trophy was displayed to the right of where Kevin Anderson was sitting on an occasion that ordinarily would have offered Maryland's athletic director a chance to imagine the Terps seriously competing for that sparkly prize. Anderson can only hope that his next visit to Verizon Center - site of Tuesday's news conference to announce that the 2017 Big Ten tournament will be held at the venue - occurs during a brighter period for the team and its coach.

Attacker Gabby Cha wasn't one of the bigger names in Towson's 2013 recruiting class, which among others included a high school All-American and a key player from one of the nation's top-ranked programs. These days, however, the former Mount de Sales standout continues to make quite a name for herself in the Colonial Athletic Association. For the third time this season, Cha on Monday was named CAA Rookie of the Week, after racking up five goals and two assists in a pair of games.

Maxwell endured a rough debut when he committed a game-high four turnovers and took zero shots in the team's 14-3 loss to the Terps, but he may have validated his coach's decision when he scored his first career hat trick on...
