WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - If Ken Niumatalolo was looking for a game to define his first full season as Navy's football coach, it came yesterday against Wake Forest at BB&T Field. If Niumatalolo was looking for a way to separate himself from his mentor, Paul Johnson, he found that, too, in a 24-17 upset of the 16th-ranked Demon Deacons, the first time Navy had beaten a team ranked in both major polls since 1985. Despite playing without Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada for the entire second half after the senior quarterback reinjured a hamstring late in the first half, then letting a 17-0 halftime lead quickly evaporate, Navy (3-2)

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on three topics from the past week in Maryland sports. What do you expect when Maryland hosts No. 1 Syracuse on Monday night in its biggest home game of the season? Jeff Barker: With no Duke or North Carolina on the home schedule this season, this is the game Terps fans have been aiming for. It's been sold out for some time. At least once a season, Maryland fans need a chance to really make some noise.

Farnold Degand hit two 3-pointers in the decisive second-half run that helped host North Carolina State beat No. 23 Wake Forest, 68-54, on Saturday. Tracy Smith scored 14 points to lead the Wolfpack (15-13, 3-10 Atlantic Coast Conference), which led the entire game but needed three straight 3s from Degand and Javi Gonzalez with about six minutes left to get control. N.C. State broke a five-game losing streak, earned its first league victory in a month and beat its instate rival at home for the fifth straight time.

COLLEGE PARK -- It took Nick Faust a few games of high school basketball to score 20 points for the first time. “I scored 20 when I was a sophomore at John Carroll, against Calvert Hall,” Faust, now a junior at Maryland, recalled Tuesday night.  “My junior year and senior year [at City] I scored 20 all the time.” It took until Faust's 97 th game at Maryland for the 6-foot-6 guard to reach that milestone. He did it in a 71-60 victory for the Terps over Wake Forest on Tuesday at Comcast Center .   Faust knew he had finally broken the 20-point barrier after making a breakaway dunk for points 19 and 20. “I did know when I made that dunk, I knew it was [for my 20 th point]

Ishmael Smith scored 15 points and added five assists to lead Wake Forest to a 64-61 overtime win over host Virginia on Saturday. Al-Farouq Aminu had 13 points and 10 rebounds for the Demon Deacons (16-5, 6-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who improved to 4-0 in overtime games this season. "I just thought it was a hard-fought ACC game," Wake Forest coach Dino Gaudio said. "We're very fortunate to win. I just thought Virginia's kids played really, really hard. I thought our kids played very hard.

Maryland will try against Wake Forest on Saturday to do what Duke recently did against the Terrapins — rebound after a trying loss. The No. 5 Blue Devils beat Maryland 80-62 on Wednesday night. That game, along with a 74-57 loss to Virginia Tech, were Maryland's worst losses ever at Comcast Center. The Blue Devils had previously lost by 15 points to St. John's. "Going into the Wake game, we'll see if we can do the same thing — get really ready to play after a tough loss," Maryland coach Gary Williams said Friday.

The Maryland men's soccer team may still be smarting from Saturday night's 4-3 loss to Atlantic Coast Conference rival Wake Forest, but it won't have time to dwell on the setback. That's because the Terps (6-3-5) are slated to tangle with Drexel (7-5-2) at Ludwig Field Tuesday night. It's an awfully quick turnaround for Maryland, but coach Sasho Cirovski said he doesn't mind. “I'm just happy that we have a game to play shortly after the loss because you want to get back on the field and try to solve some of your problems,” he said Monday.

The Demon Deacons have won 11 in a row, are playing together and have a considerable size advantage on the Billikens.

Wake Forest can hardly be considered to possess a dynamic offense this season. The Demon Deacons - Maryland's opponent Saturday - rank last in the Atlantic Coast Conference in scoring (20 points per game) and last in total offense (327 yards per game). The Demon Deacons (3-3, 1-2 ACC) haven't run the ball well and are a bit one-dimensional. But what they do - throw the ball to Michael Campanaro - they do very well. Campanaro (River Hill) didn't play against the Terps (5-1, 1-1 ACC)

Are changes coming to Maryland's offense? Maryland coach Randy Edsall hinted at change following the team's 19-14 victory over Wake Forest. "I would have hoped that we would be a little further along offensively, but that is just something that we will continue to work at ," the coach said. "I don't want to mention anything right now until I have a chance to really evaluate the film, but I think there will be some things from a personnel standpoint that will be a little bit different as we go into next week on offense.

Maryland kicker Brad Craddock has been something of a mystery to Terps fans in his first season. Since he is a freshman, it was uncertain how much range the Australian had. Craddock, who is still learning the American game, provided some answers about his leg strength against Wake Forest in Saturday's 19-14 win, although he was far from perfect in the contest. He converted his career-long field goal, from 49 yards, in the first quarter. Later in the quarter, he topped that by making a 52-yarder.

As it prepares to open its Atlantic Coast Conference schedule Saturday against Wake Forest, Maryland is in an unaccustomed position. The Terps - who lost their last seven conference games last season - find themselves as favorites to beat the Demon Deacons and avenge a 21-point loss last season. The Terps (2-2), who were beset by early-season injuries, are as healthy as they have been all season. In Wake Forest (3-2, 1-2 ACC), they will encounter a team ranked near the bottom of the ACC in most statistical defensive categories.

As the final minutes wound down in sixth-ranked Maryland's 73-58 victory over Wake Forest in Saturday's Atlantic Coast Conference women's basketball tournament semifinals, Lynetta Kizer implored Terrapins supporters at Greensboro Coliseum to rise and join her in celebrating the moment. The senior center certainly was soaking in third-seeded Maryland's 13th trip to the ACC title game, and her performance contributed considerably to her team's fifth straight win and 12th in a row over the Demon Deacons.

For nearly three quarters Saturday at BB&T Field, a young and undermanned Maryland defense kept the Terrapins from continuing their two-month freefall. And, for a few seconds at the end of the first half against Wake Forest, the offense seemed to come to life, too. It didn't last. The defense got tired and the offense made a crucial mistake — an illegal shift penalty against junior wide receiver Kevin Dorsey that negated what would have been a 17-yard touchdown run by senior tailback Davin Meggett that could have put the Terps into the lead.

One example is Wake Forest rising redshirt sophomore Michael Campanaro, a former two-time player of the year while at River Hill (2008)
