He keeps the picture in his office, on a shelf with mementos of the country's most dominant college soccer coach. All around are highlights of Sasho Cirovski's past, from the two national championships his Maryland teams have won to the 40 players they've furnished the pros. But that stuff pales next to Cirovski's treasure - a framed black-and-white photo of his family, circa 1969. It could have been taken during World War II. That's Cirovski in the foreground, in the rocky Macedonian village where he lived, a smallish boy with pursed lips and a resolute gaze far too focused for an ordinary 7-year-old.

Amid the old Terps jerseys and the "Daddy's Girls" picture frame and the College Cup posters in Sasho Cirovski's office sit the Maryland soccer coach's two bookcases. They're packed, he says, with "every coaching book you can imagine. " One book in particular stands out: the autobiography of Manchester United's Sir Alex Ferguson, who before his 2013 retirement won 13 English Premier League titles, 19 domestic cups and two Champions League crowns. He is, in short, probably soccer's most successful manager of all time - and by far its most legendary.

The Maryland men's soccer team will be up against a familiar opponent when it plays Saint Louis in the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament today at 1 p.m. in College Park. Last year, the Billikens came to Ludwig Field and were turned away by the Terrapins, who won that match, 1-0, in overtime on their way to the College Cup - a trip that would be repeated with a win today. Its name might be one of the few things that hasn't changed about Saint Louis (15-3-3), the tournament's seventh seed.

Two state teams have gotten to the round of 16 in the NCAA men's soccer tournament with paradoxically different rosters. Towson coach Frank Olszewski, who grew up in Dundalk, has all-league players from Canada and Germany, and reserves from Bermuda and Mexico. Maryland's Sasho Cirovski, who emigrated from what was Yugoslavia to Canada as a boy, has not used a single player from a foreign country this season. The Terps have one of the nation's premier programs, a brand recognized by the schoolboys who relocate to Florida for the U.S. Under-17 Residency Program.

College Park -- No. 3 Maryland rewarded a record crowd of 6,489 at Ludwig Field with a 1-0 victory over No. 14 Duke last night, as a first-half header from junior midfielder Maurice Edu held up for the defending NCAA champions. The Blue Devils are normally a hot ticket only during basketball season, but a Terps program that was dormant when coach Sasho Cirovski arrived 13 years ago has become a top draw in college soccer. Maryland's only loss, at No. 2 Clemson three weeks ago, attracted nearly 7,000 spectators.

The NCAA men's soccer tournament first-round matchup between Liberty and Loyola was delayed briefly yesterday because the Flames couldn't find their jerseys. When the game started, Liberty, like most of the Greyhounds' opponents this season, couldn't find the back of the net as host Loyola prevailed, 2-0, at Diane Geppi-Aikens Field. It was the Greyhounds' 16th shutout in 22 games this season, and they remain No. 1 in the nation in team shutout percentage. Loyola coach Mark Mettrick reminded his team during the week about the "giant-killers" in every NCAA tournament and that there is no reason the Greyhounds couldn't adopt that role.

COLLEGE PARK - For the University of Maryland men's soccer team, which has nine newcomers and will field five new starters this season, sneaking up on teams is no longer an option. That's what happens when you reach the NCAA College Cup semifinals two years straight. But the Terrapins - who open their season tomorrow against Marshall in the Nike Classic at Virginia - is a program that's reloading rather than rebuilding, with the highest of expectations under 12th-year coach Sasho Cirvoski.
