COLLEGE PARK - There were times early in the season when Maryland men's basketball coach Gary Williams avoided talking publicly about the problem, which some players said was spreading like a virus. There were times when the Terrapins resembled a horror show on the foul line, but those days appear to be long gone. Whether it's due to endless repetition in practice or mechanical adjustments made by certain offenders under the watchful eye of Williams, or whether it's another sign of the maturity that has helped put Maryland on the brink of winning its first national championship, the Terps are looking deadly on the line at the perfect time.

Towson's story was neatly summarized on the black T-shirts players wore during warm-ups. “Started from the bottom,” the shirts said in block lettering, along with “1-31,” the team's record two seasons ago. Left unsaid was that this moment - the second-seeded Tigers' opening game in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament Saturday night at Baltimore Arena - offered the promise of the next significant step in their ascent. Towson hadn't won a CAA tournament game in four years until it wore down foul-riddled James Madison and prevailed, 80-71, behind 18 points by two-time CAA Player of the Year Jerrelle Benimon and four 3-pointers and 21 points by sophomore guard Four McGlynn.

After frittering away an early 20-point lead, the Naval Academy used a suffocating defense, strong rebounding from junior forward James Norris and repeated trips to the foul line to trim Florida Atlantic, 83-66, at Alumni Hall last night before a crowd of 1,141.Using the inside game of 6-foot-11 center Alex Kohnen and 6-foot-5 forward Wes Cooper, the Midshipmen (4-3) jumped out to a 33-13 lead in the first 13 minutes against the smaller Owls, playing only their second season of Division I ball.

Welcome to a second season of Morning Shootaround. We will follow the Terps throughout the 2013-14 season, but in this space this year, we will provide a look ahead, rather than back. We will try to analyze Maryland's strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of its upcoming opponent. We also hope to provide quotes and anecdotes from practices to give some idea of what coach Mark Turgeon and his team are doing. Here are a few things to look for as the Terps get ready to play Georgia Tech at 2 p.m. Saturday at Comcast Center.

When the season began, Western's young girls basketball team struggled from the foul line, so coach Dana Johnson worked as many as 150 free throws into each practice. That extra work paid off yesterday. The host Doves hit 22 of 30 free throws, including seven of eight in the final 90 seconds to secure a 64-56 victory over Walbrook in a Class 4A North Regional quarterfinal. The Warriors, who won the regular-season meeting, 67-61, in overtime, hit three more field goals and three more three-pointers, but they couldn't keep pace with the Doves (16-7)

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland  sports. Coach Mark Turgeon talked this week about how much center Alex Len has progressed during the offseason. How good can Len be this season? Jeff Barker: Turgeon was so enthusiastic about Len's progress -- his conditioning, his summer practices, his attitude --  that he kept starting to say that the player could be twice as good in the low post as he was last year.

ATLANTA -- It was evident by the way Mark Turgeon spoke - with his head lowered and in an almost disbelieving tone - that the Maryland coach considered it far too late in the season to still be harping on the same issues that have plagued his young team for weeks. Lack of inside toughness, selfishness on offense, missed layups - Turgeon recited all the usual culprits following Maryland's 63-61 loss at Philips Arena on Saturday to a last-place Georgia Tech team that had lost 10 of its previous 11 games.
