After Maryland's opening game, coach Gary Williams resisted lavishing too much attention on promising guard Pe'Shon Howard or Maryland's other first-year players. "This is one game," was the coach's mantra then. After the season's second game Wednesday night, it proved increasingly challenging for Williams not to single out Howard for praise. Capping a night in which he repeatedly made big plays, the confident freshman swished in a basket with three seconds left to lift Maryland to a 75-74 victory over College of Charleston.

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Major international artist Leon Golub has canceled a Charleston exhibit to support the National Association for Advancement of Colored People's boycott over the Confederate flag. Golub, whose work often comments on repression and human rights violations, stated in a letter to the gallery, "This is in protest to the continuing display of the Confederate flag atop the State Capitol." In keeping with the nature of his art and beliefs, Golub, a native of Chicago, stated he would not show his art in South Carolina.

Maryland assistant basketball coach Dave Dickerson, who was one of the leading candidates to replace John Kresse as head coach at the College of Charleston, has pulled out of consideration for that job and decided to remain with the Terrapins. "I have decided to remain in my capacity as assistant basketball coach at the University of Maryland," said Dickerson, 35. "Even though I have had my name involved with some very good jobs in recent weeks, I know that my job here is one of the best in the nation right now and this is where I want to be."

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Could there possibly be a more delicious nugget to drop into conversation at the faculty club than this? "Oh, by the way, I'm told I've been nominated for the presidency of Harvard." For hundreds of deans, department heads and miscellaneous leading figures around the country, such an ego-feeding delicacy is legitimately theirs these days. Harvard University is seeking to replace its departing president, Neil L. Rudenstine, by next summer, and the net it is casting is so wide - and, at this early stage, so uncharacteristically undiscriminating - that it has received about 500 nominations.

There was not much of a reaction last night when the Maryland Terrapins learned where they were going and whom they were playing in the first round of this year's NCAA tournament. The silence in the lounge adjoining their locker room at Cole Field House could be viewed a couple of ways. Either they were stunned or just plain confused.Or both.Forward Rodney Elliott said that he didn't know much about the College of Charleston, except that the Cougars have the nation's longest winning streak.

When the college basketball season began, Maryland coach Gary Williams often complained that senior forward Keith Booth had not gotten the kind of attention that usually goes with playing on a team that had made three straight NCAA tournament appearances.As the Terrapins embark on their fourth straight trip to the NCAA tournament, Booth is finally getting his accolades.One week after being named first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference, Booth yesterday was named a third-team All-American by the Associated Press.

The 2005-06 Florida State basketball media guide includes a photo of two coaches who have taken time off from the game. Leonard Hamilton, who squirmed through an idle year after losing the Washington Wizards' job in 2001, is in command as he dissects a Seminoles win. The man holding the microphone looks forlorn, seeming to yearn for a team of his own to talk about. Bobby Cremins, who left Georgia Tech with a textbook case of burnout and spent six seasons doing television commentary, finally got his wish last month, when he was hired by the College of Charleston.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Maryland's two previous trips to the state of Tennessee did not go well. The Terps' NCAA aspirations in 1999 went down in a heap as they were bruised by St. John's, 76-63, in a Sweet 16 game played in Knoxville. Sophomore Terence Morris was bullied by Ron Artest, and Steve Francis spent the second half trash-talking the Red Storm backcourt about his impending NBA riches. Two years earlier, the Keith Booth era came to an end in Memphis, where Maryland was eliminated by the College of Charleston, 75-66, in a first-round game.

Following a coaching legend is difficult whether it's at UCLA or the College of Charleston, and what Tom Herrion is doing this year isn't much different in succeeding John Kresse than John Wooden. The average college basketball fan might not have heard of Kresse, - Coach K, as he's known around the South Carolina school - but the sport's connoisseurs are well aware of what he did in Charleston. Over Kresse's 23 years, the Cougars averaged more than 24 wins a season, including a 29-3 mark in 1996-97.

By early next week, University of Maryland men's basketball assistant coach Dave Dickerson should find out if he is going home again. Dickerson, a native of Olar, S.C., and a former Maryland player who has coached under Gary Williams for the past six seasons, is hoping to land his first head coaching job, at the College of Charleston. John Kresse recently retired after 23 seasons at the Southern Conference school. "It's a great job, and it would be enticing to go back to South Carolina," said Dickerson, who interviewed earlier this week and was expected to talk more with Charleston officials yesterday.

COLLEGE PARK -- Juan Dixon, an All-Metro guard at Calvert Hall last season, has met the NCAA requirements for freshman eligibility and is expected to join the Maryland basketball team next month.Dixon had signed a letter of intent with the Terps, but only recently received an SAT score high enough for him to qualify to play as a freshman. Once his case is approved by an NCAA clearinghouse, he can enroll as a full-time student for the spring semester and begin practicing with Maryland Dec. 21, the day after first-semester exams end.Even if he's enrolled and eligible, Dixon still might not play for Maryland this season.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- They have been hanging around the periphery for a while, rubbing shoulders and maybe a few elbows with college basketball's bigger-name programs. Tonight, the College of Charleston has a chance for a breakthrough onto the sport's largest stage -- the NCAA tournament.If it happens, it will come at the expense of the Maryland Terrapins. With the nation's longest winning streak on the line, the Cougars are ranked six places higher, but seeded seven spots lower than the No. 22, fifth-seeded Terrapins in the Southeast Regional going into their opening-round game here at The Pyramid.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- It was an easy ride through the first round. Remember those?The Maryland Terrapins finally did what they were supposed to do in their NCAA tournament opener.They beat up a team that wasn't as good.They bored a neutral crowd that was itching to cheer a lower seed to an upset.They played up to their Atlantic Coast Conference pedigree.So this is what that looks like.The Terps were so much bigger and better than Utah State yesterday at the Arco Arena that it was almost impossible for them to lose.
