The Terps are down at halftime, 34-27, and here are a few reasons: FIU had gone up 34-23 with 1:23 left in the half after a 13-1 run, but Terrell Stoglin was fouled on a 3-point shot and the player who fouled him, Jeremy Allen, was called for a technical. Stoglin hit four of five free throws, and neither team scored again the rest of the half. Stoglin leads the Terps with eight points at the half, but is shooting just 1-for-8 from the field, several of the misses more reminiscent of the ill-advised shots the sophomore guard was launching earlier in the season.

Isiah Thomas can recall facing Maryland once in his college basketball career, as a sophomore guard at Indiana in the NCAA tournament "the year we won it. " That would have been in 1981, when the Hoosiers crushed the Terps by 35 points in the second round. It was the largest margin of defeat for Maryland in the NCAA tournament under Lefty Driesell. Three decades later, Thomas will be taking on the Terps again, this time as the third-year coach of a struggling Florida International University program that the Hall of Fame player and former NBA coach and executive is trying to build.

COLLEGE PARK -- The College of Charleston's gain turned into Florida International's lopsided loss.The 12,765 fans at Cole Field House last night might not have known much about FIU, but coach Gary Williams made sure Maryland did. Here's how the pep talk went: The Terps were beaten in last year's NCAA tournament by the C of C, which had fits against Trans America Athletic Conference rival Florida International.The propaganda helped, as the No. 24 Terps pounded the Golden Panthers, 117-70.

The Florida sunshine has been very good to Josh Banks. His fastball has jumped from the mid-80s to the 90-96-mph range at Florida International University, he has put 30 pounds of muscle on his 6-foot-3 frame, and he still has the pinpoint control that attracted a lot of attention at Severna Park High. It has added up to Banks' riding high as the ace of the Golden Panthers' pitching staff with 12 starts and a Sun Belt Conference-best 8-1 record, 2.83 ERA and 97 strikeouts. The junior right-hander's season at the Miami school opened Jan. 25, and Florida International already has played 43 games (29-14, 7-5)

BOISE, Idaho -- It wasn't exactly with a flourish that Missouri entered this year's NCAA tournament. Five losses in their past six games and a recent history of early exits made one wonder whether the Tigers' tournament run would be brief.The Tigers, at least temporarily, silenced their critics by defeating eighth-seeded Indiana, 65-60, in the first round of the West Regional last night."Every paper I see, it has that we've lost five out of six," Tigers coach Norm Stewart said.
