Feeling the pressure of replacing three senior starters, most members of the Maryland men's basketball team remained close to campus over the summer. The players participated in pickup games with Maryland alumni such as Steve Blake, lifted weights and ate meals together. They couldn't have remained closer to Comcast Center if they had slept there. In fact, a small group did just that. "Actually, we lived in Comcast for a little while," said senior forward Dino Gregory.

Of all the Terps eager to begin a new season, few have seemed as excited -- or motivated -- as swingman Cliff Tucker. Tucker began Monday night's opening exhibition game -- with solid shooting and flair and energy -- as if he had something to prove. Which, of course, he has. Tucker made seven of 10 shots (15 points) in Maryland's 106-58 victory against Division II Florida Southern. But it was more than that. By the opening moments of the second half -- with the Terps leading 67-31 -- Tucker had eight assists (he finished with 10)

Thirty-two years after setting Maryland's record for points in a men's basketball game, Ernest Graham has a wish. "I would love to live long enough to see them retire my jersey," said Graham, a Dunbar graduate who played for the Terps from 1978-81 and whose single-game mark of 44 points, set against North Carolina State in 1978, still stands. But Graham's number — nor that of any other Terp — isn't likely to be retired anytime soon. That's because Maryland has a policy of not retiring basketball numbers.

It took a special brand of confidence for freshman guard Pe'Shon Howard to arrive at the Maryland men's basketball team's media day Thursday wearing a crisp white jersey bearing No. 21 — Greivis Vasquez's old number. "I had [No. 21] in high school," said Howard, who is from Los Angeles and attended Virginia's Oak Hill Academy. "Greivis said he didn't mind. At first he said he wasn't sure. He had to see me and make sure I was tough enough to wear it. " If Howard seemed bold — and it certainly takes self-assurance to wear the number of Maryland's second-leading scorer of all time — he wasn't the only one. Unlike last season, when media day was ruled by Vasquez (now with the NBA's Memphis Grizzlies)

Women's college lacrosse Ex-Terp McFadden named assistant coach at Florida Caitlyn McFadden (Notre Dame Prep), who won the 2010 NCAA tournament Most Outstanding Player award in her senior season at Maryland, has been named assistant coach at Florida.

A dream that began years ago in a South American country known for producing more shortstops than jump shooters and took shape at Maryland the past four seasons became reality Thursday night at New York's Madison Square Garden. Greivis Vasquez silenced his doubters, at least for the time being, after getting chosen by the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round of the NBA draft. Vasquez was the 28th player taken overall. He didn't shimmy his shoulders in celebration, as he had done so many times as a Terp, but punched the air and celebrated with friends and family members.

Greivis Vasquez is moving closer to a destination he has often dreamed about since leaving Venezuela to attend high school in the United States: the NBA. With the NBA draft Thursday night at New York's Madison Square Garden, Maryland's second-leading career scorer seems as passionate about making it at the highest level of professional basketball as he once was about proving himself as an elite college player. Not surprisingly, Vasquez is showing his typical bravado by predicting where he might be drafted.

In their minds, it's still unfolding. Korie Lucious is making his 3-pointer and slowly turning to run down court, his mouth guard dangling from his lips, as green-clad Michigan State teammates rush from the bench to greet him. For Maryland's three starting seniors, the last moments of their 85-83 NCAA tournament loss are like a ringing in their ears that won't quite be silenced. "I see it all the time," said forward Landon Milbourne, one of the three starting Terrapins for whom the Lucious shot on March 21 is the final memory of otherwise bright college careers.

Pe'Shon Howard wore No. 21 on Thursday night for the U.S. All-Stars in the Capital Classic. It's the number that the 6-foot-2 guard wore in the recently-ended high school season, and he hopes it will be his again at the University of Maryland this fall. Howard's ambition to wear "21" might be considered audacious since it was also the number of Greivis Vasquez, who recently ended his Maryland career as the school's second all-time scorer. Howard -- who joined fellow future Terps Terrell Stoglin and Haukur Palsson in the high school all-star game -- said he intended no disrespect to Vasquez.
