GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The Maryland women's basketball team's hope for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament is still alive - barely. The fourth-ranked and third-seeded Terps sleepwalked through much of a quarterfinal meeting with 11th-seeded Georgia Tech before waking up and escaping with a 71-66 win before 8,965 at the Greensboro Coliseum last night.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Maryland's departure from the Atlantic Coast Conference hit a lot of longtime Terps fans hard this weekend. Many who have been coming here for years and witnessed two of the school's three ACC tournament championships, in 1984 and 2004, were sad to say goodbye to Greensboro Coliseum. Me, too. After spending years covering the Big East Conference tournament at Madison Square Garden, I felt like the Eddie Albert character on the '60s sitcom “Green Acres” when I went to cover my first ACC tournament, in 1986.

The Maryland men's basketball team has drawn the seventh seed in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament and will face North Carolina State at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, N.C. The game will be televised by ESPN2. The Terps, who have lost three straight games entering the tournament, likely would need to win out to earn a spot in the NCAA tournament. The winner of the ACC tournament receives an automatic berth in the NCAAs. Should Maryland defeat N.C. State, its next opponent would be second seed Duke, a team that beat the Terps twice in the regular season, including by 18 points in College Park on Feb. 2. The Blue Devils -- along with top seed North Carolina, third seed Florida State and No. 4 seed Clemson -- earned a first-round bye in the ACC tournament.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - The pained look Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson has worn for most of the past two months has had more to do with his recovery from knee replacement surgery than what he endured watching the Terps men's basketball team's disappointing season. The solemn look was there Thursday, but this time it had more to do with the Terps' losing another close game than with his new knee. Anderson, who signed Mark Turgeon to an eight-year contract after Gary Williams retired suddenly in March 2011, said he still has faith that the Terps will turn it around.

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Maryland junior forward Evan Smotrycz's availability is in question for Thursday's ACC tournament second-round game against Florida State because of lower back spasms, an athletic department spokesman said. Smotrycz warmed up a little prior to the game at the Greensboro Coliseum, but mostly stood on the sideline watching. Smotrycz is averaging 11 points and six rebounds and is coming off a game in which he scored 13 points -- all in the first half -- in Sunday's overtime win over then-No.

- Last season, Maryland was upset by Morgan State at home and later lost by 41 points at Duke. Each time, a portion of the fan base responded as if the sky were falling. Maryland coach Gary Williams knows bad defeats - and Wednesday's 83-77 loss to William & Mary qualifies - are inevitably met with criticism and tortured analysis of the team by Terps backers. The lesson of last season, Williams said, is that Maryland, with its three senior starters, can absorb a blow and come back.

There were plenty of competing feelings as the Terps quietly packed up their gear Saturday to leave Greensboro Coliseum, their home for four days. The strip containing the Maryland logo was removed from the locker room door. The Terps still were a little dazed that their ambitions of winning the ACC tournament -- and the automatic NCAA tournament berth that comes with it -- had been put to rest. Logan Aronhalt removed his ear buds  and patiently answered questions about his errant shot to try to tie the game with 10 seconds left.

Beginning with the 1990 season, the Atlantic Coast Conference men's basketball tournament has been held in North Carolina 16 times and outside the state four times. It's a statistic well known - but not so well liked - by many Maryland fans, who believe the four North Carolina schools have a built-in advantage. Maryland coach Gary Williams acknowledged this week that playing in the ACC tournament - this year's is at Greensboro Coliseum - is often akin to playing an away game rather than a contest at a neutral site.

No, it wasn't a misprint, the Carolina Monarchs did nearly pack the Greensboro Coliseum to the rafters -- 16,244 -- for a recent American Hockey League encounter. All season the expansion team has been doing fairly well at the gate, averaging just under 4,400 fans. Why the explosion?Portland was in town and, as Pirates owner Tom Ebright explained, "It was 'Fill The Building Night' and they darn near did it. It was a really festive crowd and they had a heck of a game to watch."Translation: Portland won, 3-2, in overtime.

- The Atlantic Coast Conference tournament has a familiar feel for the second-seeded Maryland Terrapins. After all, they have played each of the participants this season and could find themselves playing at least one team for a third time. At the same time, the tournament is very different - the schedule is more compressed - than the regular season. Preparing for it requires a new set of procedures. About the only thing like it for No. 19 Maryland this season was the Maui Invitational, in which the Terps played three games in three days in November, losing two. The team could have a similar schedule at Greensboro Coliseum if it wins tonight and Saturday to advance to Sunday's final.

COLLEGE PARK -- A Maryland team that had spent part of the past month losing close games to nationally ranked teams returned to its bench Sunday at Comcast Center, teetering toward another frustrating defeat. There was confusion about the way the Terps had played in the final minute of regulation, which ended with No. 5 Virginia forcing overtime on a lob jumper off an inbounds play with less than a second remaining. There was anger, pent up from other close losses in Atlantic Coast Conference play to then-No.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - The eighth-ranked Maryland women's basketball team's final appearance in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament lasted but one game, with the Terps unable to overcome an unsightly first half that included turnovers and missed shots en masse, forcing them to chase futilely the rest of the way in a 73-70 loss to North Carolina on Friday night in the quarterfinals at Greensboro Coliseum. The third-seeded Terps, who are headed to the Big Ten next season, absorbed their earliest exit from the ACC tournament since 2010-11, when they lost in the quarterfinals as well.

The second-seeded Maryland women's basketball team had its bid to repeat as ACC tournament champions end with a 72-65 loss to North Carolina in Saturday's semifinals despite nearly a second straight triple double from Alyssa Thomas, who got little help during a second-half collapse in front of an announced 8,754 at Greensboro Coliseum. Thomas finished with 26 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists less than 24 hours after recording the first triple double in ACC tournament history.

- A year ago, North Carolina was nearly upset in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. Then the Tar Heels were upended in the semifinals. To say North Carolina managed to recover would be an understatement. Three weeks later, the Tar Heels were national champions. There's a lesson there for Maryland, Florida State and Virginia Tech, which, like the Tar Heels in 2009, didn't live up to their advance billing in this season's ACC tournament despite first-round byes.

The evening's only true suspense ended 10 minutes before game time when the bright red numbers on the overhead scoreboard blinked on, revealing the numbers of Maryland's starting five. Dissatisfied with his team's performance in its last outing, Maryland coach Gary Williams had not committed to his usual starters entering Wednesday night's game against UNC-Greensboro. But Williams ended up standing pat, and his lineup -- the one he's used all year -- delivered a 99-56 over a winless UNC-Greensboro team that has lost all eight of their games by double-digit margins.

With a chance to repeat as champion in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament in jeopardy, the 10th-ranked Maryland women's basketball team leaned on junior forward Alyssa Thomas, and the two-time conference Player of the Year delivered a performance that, coupled with a stifling defense in overtime, allowed the Terps to outlast Wake Forest, 92-81, in the quarterfinals Friday night at Greensboro Coliseum. Disregarding stomach discomfort that had been bothering her since Tuesday, Thomas collected the first triple double in ACC tournament history, scoring a career-high 32 points, including eight in overtime, with 13 rebounds and 10 assists.

Maryland had one more opportunity Friday night to get it right, one precious chance -- in a meaningful game in March -- to finally claim a memorable win against a ranked team while retaining a shred of hope of securing an NCAA tournament berth. After having gone 0-6 against Top 25 teams, the Terps fell, 87-71, to No. 5 Duke in perhaps the costliest loss of all because it ended their ambitious goal of winning the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament as a seventh seed and claiming the conference's automatic NCAA bid. It was a rough, contentious, quarterfinal played in front of a heavily pro-Duke crowd.
