College Park -- The requests began with a paper cutout of a turtle, then progressed to a basketball, a cast, and even the back of one young fan's red sweat shirt - while he was wearing it. Maryland freshman guards Greivis Vasquez and Eric Hayes haven't played one minute in a college basketball game, but after the Terps' first open scrimmage, wide-eyed and waist-high fans approached them for autographs. Their veteran teammates watched from their seats on the scorer's table, their lanky legs dangling over the edge.

On Sunday night, Jordan Williams retreated to his room to watch the National Invitation Tournament selection show. The Maryland center wasn't tuning in to find out whether the Terps (19-14) would be invited — he figured that was a lock — but to learn whom the team would be playing and when. "I fully expected us to be a top seed in that tournament," the sophomore said. "For us not to be in was crazy. " It was a jarring end to the season for Maryland — the sort of ending that makes players and coaches yearn for the next season to swiftly arrive so they can write a new ending.

In their minds, it's still unfolding. Korie Lucious is making his 3-pointer and slowly turning to run down court, his mouth guard dangling from his lips, as green-clad Michigan State teammates rush from the bench to greet him. For Maryland's three starting seniors, the last moments of their 85-83 NCAA tournament loss are like a ringing in their ears that won't quite be silenced. "I see it all the time," said forward Landon Milbourne, one of the three starting Terrapins for whom the Lucious shot on March 21 is the final memory of otherwise bright college careers.

After the Georgia Tech win, Greivis Vasquez asked rhetorically who was the one who threw the passes that allowed Eric Hayes to hit three-pointers in the second half. ... Of course, the answer is Greivis himself. And the clear implication is that Greivis feels he is unappreciated. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/trackingtheterps)

The Terps have a lot of depth in the backcourt. The improvement of sophomores Adrian Bowie and Cliff Tucker and the addition of freshman Sean Mosley gives Gary Williams options if Greivis Vasquez and Eric Hayes are not playing well. Maryland's frontcourt situation is even worse than I imagined. As well as Dave Neal played against Vermont, it was mainly due to the fact that Braxton Dupree and Jerome Burney were almost nonexistent. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/terpsblog)

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- In terms of hairstyles, Eric Hayes has reinvented himself a couple of times since coming to play basketball at the University of Maryland.

A starting lineup? Gary Williams insists that we shouldn't read anything into the lineups he put out there for the start of Wednesday's scrimmage - Eric Hayes, Greivis Vasquez, Sean Mosley, Braxton Dupree and Landon Milbourne on one team; Adrian Bowie, Cliff Tucker, Dino Gregory, Jerome Burney and David Pearman on the other. "We don't have a starting lineup set," Williams said. "There's no starting lineup in October. ... What you are in October has nothing to do with where you want to be in January."

Maryland's Eric Hayes sank a money ball on his last attempt to win the 3-point shooting competition at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis. Hayes trailed Randy Wittman of Cornell in the final round but made the two-point money ball from the right corner to break a tie and score 17 points in the final, beating Wittman's 15. Hayes had the highest score in each of the three rounds, with each round scored separately.

Each year, Maryland hangs photos of its seniors in the men's basketball offices at Comcast Center. So it was that framed action shots of Dino Gregory, Cliff Tucker and Adrian Bowie went up before the season began. After that, not everything went according to plan. The senior trio — which will be honored today before its final home game, against Virginia — presided over a team that, with six newcomers, has failed to approach the standards set by its recent predecessors. If college is about learning lessons, the one imparted on Gregory, Tucker and Bowie is that life — and basketball specifically — doesn't always go as planned.

There is a revealing statistic about last season's Maryland team, which tied eventual national champion Duke atop the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season standings. Like this year's team, the 2009-10 Terps played in plenty of close conference games. The difference is, they usually won them. From Feb. 4, 2010, until the end of the regular-season schedule, Maryland played seven games decided by single digits. The Terps — led by the animated, ultra-competitive Greivis Vasquez, who returns to Comcast Center to be honored at Sunday's N.C. State game — won all seven.

Sean Mosley began nodding his head even before the question was finished. Had Maryland's co-captain, who had been struggling with his shooting until recently, been passing up good looks at the basket? That can be a telltale sign of a player overthinking on the court. "I wasn't taking open shots," Mosley acknowledged. "Now I'm not thinking about it. And when I do get it, I'm shooting. " For weeks, Mosley's difficulties had seemed a delicate topic around Comcast Center. As the Terps (16-8, 5-4 Atlantic Coast Conference)

As the college basketball season began, Maryland coach Gary Williams seemed to issue a challenge to his three senior starters: Adrian Bowie, Dino Gregory and Cliff Tucker. "As a player, you always want your chance. Well, here it is," the coach said. So how have the seniors -- who entered the season having spent more time as reserves than starters -- answered the call so far? The statistics show that, through the first seven games, the players are all contributing more than last season.

Maryland coach Gary Williams was asked this week if his basketball team had the makings of something great. Williams answered quickly. "Not yet," he said. "It's way too early. We haven't done anything yet. I think you're measured by who you play. " By that definition, it will soon be easier to chart the progress of the Terrapins (3-0), who play No. 5 Pitt (3-0) Thursday night in the 2K Sports Classic benefitting Coaches vs. Cancer at New York's Madison Square Garden. It will be the first test for the Terps — who have six newcomers this season — against a ranked team.

Gary Williams met the media at Comcast Center on Sunday wearing his usual expression, as if someone had just rear-ended his car. Moments earlier, his Maryland Terrapins had improved their record to 3-0 with an 89-59 pasting of Maine. Now Williams was being asked how good this Maryland team could be, and his answers invariably came down to this: Who knows? It's only November. "Nobody's where they want to be on Nov. 14," the Terps coach said. "You have to keep improving. " OK, to his credit, Williams didn't want to make too much of a blowout win over a team from the weaker America East Conference.

COLLEGE PARK -- When the new basketball season commences tonight at Comcast Center, Maryland guards Greivis Vasquez and Eric Hayes will be thinking as much about what happens in the paint as what goes on out on the perimeter. Specifically, the two sophomores, and the rest of the lineup for that matter, have had their attention directed to the fact that in their 75-42 exhibition win Wednesday over Concordia, the Terps were out-rebounded by the smaller Stingers.

Feeling the pressure of replacing three senior starters, most members of the Maryland men's basketball team remained close to campus over the summer. The players participated in pickup games with Maryland alumni such as Steve Blake, lifted weights and ate meals together. They couldn't have remained closer to Comcast Center if they had slept there. In fact, a small group did just that. "Actually, we lived in Comcast for a little while," said senior forward Dino Gregory. "In a lounge room with video and stuff.

Of all the Terps eager to begin a new season, few have seemed as excited -- or motivated -- as swingman Cliff Tucker. Tucker began Monday night's opening exhibition game -- with solid shooting and flair and energy -- as if he had something to prove. Which, of course, he has. Tucker made seven of 10 shots (15 points) in Maryland's 106-58 victory against Division II Florida Southern. But it was more than that. By the opening moments of the second half -- with the Terps leading 67-31 -- Tucker had eight assists (he finished with 10)
