MINNEAPOLIS -- The Michigan collapse began almost imperceptibly. It was hard to spot because no one had ever seen this bunch of youngsters flinch before.It came in the same form as many other bold antics concocted by the Wolverines' freshmen -- a unique protest by guard Jalen Rose.After Rose was assessed his fourth foul, he turned to the CBS broadcasting crew and accusingly requested that a replay be shown."Replay," said Rose to the courtside broadcasters, mouthing the words almost silently but showing defiance in his expression.

Maryland came to the Smith Center hoping to be more than a mere afterthought for a North Carolina team whose fans couldn't help but look ahead excitedly to the Tar Heels' rematch with Duke on Saturday. While the sixth-ranked Tar Heels and the fourth-ranked Blue Devils will play for the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season title, the Terps were playing for something less tangible Wednesday night. Eager for redemption after their recent road struggles, the Terps instead fell victim to turnovers, foul trouble and North Carolina's frontcourt size in an 88-64 Tar Heels victory.

COLLEGE PARK -- When Walt Williams took a seat on the Maryland bench a little more than seven minutes into the second half last night against Wake Forest, his four fouls were just as important as his 32 points.While the time he spent there -- 3 minutes, 12 seconds to be exact -- might have cost the senior guard a chance at the school scoring record, his absence proved even more significant for the Terrapins.Having led the Demon Deacons by as many as 11 points earlier, and by six when he went out, Maryland fell apart without the ACC's leading scorer.

ESPN brought its cameras and crew to Comcast Center on Wednesday night for a nationally televised game between Maryland and Florida International. Rivalry week, this isn't. Nor was it an "Instant Classic," but what had the makings of a clunker for the Terps and sophomore guard Terrell Stoglin turned into a grind-it-out 65-61 victory before an announced 11,679. Nursing a sprained ankle that kept him out of two practices last weekend, and four fouls that kept him off the court for long stretches in the second half, Stoglin scored 20 points on 4-for-13 shooting to lead Maryland (6-3)

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - The Maryland Terrapins failed in their comeback bid against top-ranked North Carolina yesterday, but at least junior center Lonny Baxter rediscovered his game. Baxter had been in constant foul trouble, which had limited his playing time. He has had his hands full against the parade of bigger opponents the ACC presents in the pivot. His shot selection and confidence had suffered of late. Yesterday, it all came together once again for the 6 feet 8, 260-pounder, who gave 7-foot center Brendan Haywood all he could handle.

It was midway through the third quarter, and Ciaran Lesikar's Glenelg team was not playing well against visiting Mount Hebron last Wednesday.The person sitting next to him had a lot to do with it."This is why we need you in the game," Lesikar said, leaning over toward senior Camey Brian, who had picked up two quick fouls -- her third and fourth -- in the third quarter. "This is why you can't get in foul trouble."Said Brian: "I knew what he was talking about. I'm like the spark of the team and he needs me on the court."

When Towson coach Pat Kennedy first looked at the three-game stretch that began with Colonial Athletic Association co-leaders Northeastern and George Mason and wrapped up against pre-season favorite Virginia Commonwealth, he said he knew his team had its work cut out for it. Last night at the Towson Center, Kennedy's worst-case scenario became a reality as the Tigers dropped their third straight, this one to the Rams, 78-71, before an announced 1,379....

Despite its big man, 6-foot-8 Holden Plack, in foul trouble and out of the game, the No. 12 St. Paul's boys basketball team rallied to take a 70-57 decision over Severn yesterday in Severna Park. Plack ended up with just eight points and eight rebounds, all of the latter coming in the first half. Sophomore point guard Jason Caldwell and forwards Ray Brown and Scott Dozier provided the offensive spark in the second half. They led a 19-2 run that began at the end of the third quarter and extended halfway through the last period, allowing the Crusaders to emerge from a 41-39 deficit and take a 58-43 lead.

For most of last night's game, Seton Keough's No. 1 girls basketball team pushed the pace, using its overall quickness as a key weapon against taller but slower No. 4 Arundel. However, when Asya Bussie, the Gators' 6-foot-3 All-Metro center, got into foul trouble in the third quarter, senior guard B.J. Williams led a switch in gears. "We just wanted to slow the pace of the game down and keep everybody controlled and in sync, just try to run the clock down and get an easy two points," Williams said.

SAN DIEGO - Just when it looked as if No. 4 seed Indiana would end its string of early disappointments in the NCAA tournament, Trevor Huffman stepped in. The junior guard scored 19 of his team-high 23 points in the second half, helping No. 13 seed Kent overcome a 12-point deficit in the second half for a 77-73 victory last night in an NCAA West Regional first-round game. Kent State will face Cincinnati tomorrow in the second round. In the final five minutes, Huffman - whose uncle, Shoes Huffman, played on the 1979 NCAA championship team at Michigan State - made a pair of critical and unlikely shots as the Golden Flashes (24-9)

No longer burdened by the foul trouble that limited his play in the first half, Patterson sophomore point guard Aquille Carr did in the second half what he's done all season for the No. 1 Clippers - take over a basketball game. That the competition was for the Baltimore City Division I championship, that the opponent was two-time defending Class 2A state champion City, and that the venue was bigger than usual - a packed house at Morgan State - didn't matter to the 5-foot-6 Carr, an All-Metro selection.

Defending champion Paint Branch warmed up for last night's Class 3A girls state basketball championship game in jerseys with "BK2BK" on the back, but that seemed a bit premature to Jess Harlee and her undefeated No. 11 Fallston team. The Cougars used a big fourth-quarter surge and Harlee, who finished with 28 points, hit two clutch free throws with 3.3 seconds left as Fallston held off Paint Branch, 65-62, to finish 28-0 before a raucous crowd of about 3,500 last night at UMBC's RAC Arena.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. - Everything seemed to be going Maryland's way against Miami last night. The Terps started off shooting their way to a 12-point halftime lead that grew to as many as 17 midway through the second half. The small crowd at BankUnited Center was mute. Then it all fell apart. For the second time in a week, Maryland lost a game it had seemingly put away, falling, 62-60. This might have not been as stunning as losing to Morgan State at home, but it hurt just as bad and certainly had more significance coming in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Brian Hodges said UMBC has watched the tape of Pittsburgh's 74-65 win over Georgetown in the Big East tournament "two or three times" to find some clues. But guard Jay Greene insisted yesterday the Retrievers will do more of what got them here. "We're just going to play our game, look to get out and run out there," Greene said. "We can definitely push the ball." Greene also said UMBC isn't awed by being here, playing today against one of the national powers. "This is the stage we want to be on. ... It lets us know where we stand.

Greivis Vasquez walked through the runway to the Maryland locker room and left others to observe the madness unfolding behind him. James Gist squatted under the basket near the Terps bench, hands clasped over his head, also unable to look. But they both had to hear all the whooping and hollering and slapping of sneakers at the opposite bench, where the Clemson players had swarmed to celebrate. There was no other noise to drown them out. Comcast Center was as silent and shocked and hurting as the players were.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The New Jersey Nets said they hadn't played their best basketball in the NBA Finals to date, and they still may not have. But they played well just long enough last night to seize a 77-76 victory over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 4. The series is now tied at 2-2, with Game 5 tomorrow night in New Jersey. The seemingly long, dormant Nets' transition game was unwrapped for enough of a stretch to give New Jersey some easy baskets, which had been non-existent in the first three games of the series.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Adjusting on the fly yesterday because of injury and foul trouble, Southern Illinois found a way into the Sweet 16.
