NEW ORLEANS - For 20 minutes last night, it looked as if Syracuse University would have to name a building after 6-foot-3 freshman guard Gerry McNamara. Then somehow, it almost all unraveled. McNamara hit six three-pointers in the first half as Syracuse jumped out to a 53-42 halftime lead in last night's NCAA men's basketball national championship game. And as it turned out, the Orangemen needed every single one of them. The Jayhawks staged a furious second-half comeback, in part because they held McNamara scoreless in the second 20 minutes.

The game was over for everyone, except Rodney Elliott Jr. His team down by 20 points with time quickly evaporating, Elliott Jr. came off the bench determined. He brought the crowd to its feet, sinking eight consecutive 3-pointers and sending his team home with an improbable victory, much the same way his father used to do for Gary Williams at Maryland in the late 1990s. Except this game wasn't played in College Park. It was in 2002 at a youth development center in East Baltimore, and Elliott Jr. was just 7 years old. "I just started crying on the bench for no reason," Elliott Jr. recalled.

COLLEGE PARK -- When it was over, as soon as Maryland had passed its acid test, Terrell Stokes jumped on Gary Williams' back and mussed the coach's hair.There could be no more apt ending to the story that unfolded on national television yesterday. Because for 32 minutes in a game they had to have, Williams and the Terps had ridden Stokes' young back.Playing for suspended senior point guard Duane Simpkins, Stokes ran the offense like a maestro, and Maryland throttled Missouri, 91-72, in a game that should play big when the NCAA picks its 64-team tournament field next month.

Here's a greatly abridged list of facts that set Sean Tuohy Jr. apart from your average reserve on a mid-major college basketball team: Start with the Loyola guard's 23,379 Twitter followers. For a little perspective, the team's star, Dylon Cormier, has 643. Then there are the road crowds, which alternate between calling for Tuohy's entry to the game and booing him like he's J.J. Redick. All of this for a redshirt freshman who's played six minutes in his college career. Oh and three years ago, Tuohy watched Sandra Bullock - he calls her Sandy - win an Academy Award for portraying his mother, Leigh Anne.

It was a September day in 2007 and Seth Allen was riding his bicycle around his suburban Virginia neighborhood the same way he now plays basketball for Maryland - with speed and flair, but also a hint of youthful recklessness. Allen wasn't holding on to the 10-speed's handlebars when he hit a rough patch of pavement and lost control, tumbling off the bike and shattering his left elbow in so many places that doctors had to insert two plates and 24 screws to stabilize the joint. Five and a half years later, the screws and plates remain in the freshman guard's shooting elbow along with the memory of surgeries, painkillers and months of rehabilitation during which his athletic future was clouded.

Their season record is still a modest 4-12, but the long-struggling Morgan State Bears have shown signs of turning the corner under first-year coach Chris Fuller.Last night at Hill Field House, the Bears picked on winless Howard (0-15, 0-6) to register their third victory in their past four games, 73-64, and raise their Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference mark to 3-2.Smothering defense was the key as Morgan limited the Bison -- the only Division I team without a victory this season -- to four field goals and a season-low 21 percent field-goal percentage in the first half.

He might have played just 11 minutes, but Bryan Harris' brief outing in the UMBC men's basketball team's 75-60 loss to host Towson at SECU Arena on Tuesday night offered reason for optimism. In his college debut, the freshman had six points on 1-for-6 shooting (4-for-4 from the free-throw line), plus one rebound and two steals. Harris (Southern), who underwent a pair of heart procedures in 2012, initially signed to play at Wofford, but left to be closer to his hometown of Oxon Hill.

Roddy Peters heard all the chatter this summer when the incoming Maryland freshman point guard's jersey was listed as No. 3, an iconic number in College Park last worn by Maryland Hall of Famer Juan Dixon. But before the team's three-game tour of the Bahamas in early August, Maryland coach Mark Turgeon announced that the former Suitland High star would go down a digit - to No. 2 - and wear a much less notable number. It turns out that Turgeon wasn't the one to nix the idea of Peters wearing a number that hangs from the ceiling of Comcast Center and belongs to Maryland's all-time leading scorer.

For a precious few moments - as Maryland students rushed the floor and enveloped the players after a rare and sorely needed victory over No. 2 Duke - the Terps, their fans and beleaguered coach could embrace the occasion and forget about the unfulfilled expectations that preceded it. In the coming weeks, bracketologists will assess what the 83-81 victory might mean for Maryland's chances of making the NCAA tournament. But for now, the Terps (18-7, 6-6 Atlantic Coast Conference)

During halftime of Saturday night's game against No. 2 Duke at Comcast Center, Maryland freshman point guard Seth Allen gave himself a little pep talk. Not only had his Duke counterpart, sophomore Quinn Cook, scored 11 points, but Allen was scoreless. Allen had taken just one shot and had not done much to help the Terps take a one-point halftime lead. "The first half, I was just really trying to defend as much as I could, get guys into it [the offense], I didn't really shoot that much the first half," said Allen, who started at point guard for only the second time in the Terps ' last seven games.

With a roster severely depleted because of injuries to its starting backcourt, the 10th-ranked Maryland women's basketball team got a breakout scoring performance from a freshman point guard and double figures from three others to pull away from No. 24 Miami, 84-62, on Thursday night at Comcast Center. Chloe Pavlech scored a career-high 20 points, 14 of which came in the first half, including 8-for-11 shooting and 3-for-6 on 3-pointers, and junior All-American Alyssa Thomas contributed 18points, eight rebounds and five assists in the Terps' eighth victory in nine games and third over a ranked opponent.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Juan Dixon, a freshman guard from Calvert Hall, has accepted Maryland's plan to redshirt him this season, but he's also prepared to play should one of the Terps' three guards be sidelined by a serious injury.Dixon, a two-time All-Metro selection by The Sun, didn't get a standardized test score that would qualify him for freshman eligibility until November. He didn't practice with the Terps until Christmas week, when he said that he wanted to play this season.He's still ready to sacrifice a shortened freshman season if the Terps need him in a pinch.

At opposite ends of their college basketball careers, Notre Dame fifth-year senior guard Brittany Mallory and Maryland freshman guard Brene Moseley view Tuesday night's NCAA tournament regional final at PNC Arena through much different eyes. Mallory is looking for top-seeded Notre Dame (33-3) to erase the disappointment of last season's NCAA championship game defeat to Texas A&M in Indianapolis. Moseley is hoping to get second-seeded Maryland (31-4) back to the Final Four for the first time since the Terps won the title in 2006.
