Saturday's game may be the first-ever meeting between these schools, but there is reason for intrigue. The No. 19 Hawks are the unanimous preseason favorites to repeat as America East champions and lost just two starters to graduation. The No. 10 Terps' losses to graduation are well-documented, but that hasn't diminished the expectations surrounding a program that reached the NCAA final last spring. Here are a few factors that could play a role in the outcome. 1) Maryland's defense.

Any worries coach Don Zimmerman had about how UMBC would respond after a surprising loss to America East rival disappeared in the first 15 minutes of Saturday's game against visiting Hartford. The Retrievers outscored the Hawks, 7-2, in the first quarter en route to a 16-11 victory at UMBC Stadium. It was the sixth time this season that the team had entered the second quarter with a lead, and UMBC has won five of those games. The strong start was a refreshing development for Zimmerman.

Hartford stunned many observers last season by upending Stony Brook in the America East Tournament final and qualifying for the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history. The unanimous preseason favorite to repeat as league champions, the No. 19 Hawks - who open the season Saturday at No. 10 Maryland - are expected by many to repeat that path in 2012. Contrary to conventional wisdom, coach Peter Lawrence said the team accepts that expectation. “I think we should [repeat]

Hartford, Conn., has become the largest guinea pig yet in urban experiments involving privatizing public schools. By a 6-3 vote, that city's school board approved a contract with Education Alternatives Inc. to take over the entire school system. That same firm operates nine schools in Baltimore City. So far, however, results here have been mixed.Although EAI promised "immediate gains" in student achievement when it began running its "Tesseract" schools two years ago, test scores have shown no significant improvement.

Hartford graduated just two starters from last year's squad that went 11-7, knocked off Stony Brook in the America East tournament final, and advanced to its first NCAA Tournament. On the flipside, Maryland bid farewell to five starters - including its entire starting defense - from the group that reached the national title game. But when the No. 19 Hawks visit the No. 10 Terps Saturday in the season opener for both teams, Hartford coach Peter Lawrence said a win would qualify as an upset.

Towson University's men's basketball game against Hartford, originally scheduled for last night, will start at 1 p.m. today at Towson Center. The school was forced to postpone the game when the Towson Center suffered a weather-related power outage that affected four other buildings on campus. Both Towson (10-15) and Hartford (4-21) also play tomorrow night. The two coaches -- Towson's Mike Jaskulski and Hartford Larry Harrison -- agreed on today's game time to minimize any disadvantage against their respective opponents for tomorrow, Vermont and Delaware, who played last night.

Before starting his NHL career in Hartford, Krygier played at the University of Connecticut. His brothers, Mike and Bryan, also played at UConn, and both live in Connecticut.Krygier rushed out of the Capitals' locker room after Saturday's 4-1 loss in Hartford because his brothers were waiting.

Having outlasted No. 5 seed Albany, 2-1, in double overtime in Wednesday night's America East tournament semifinal at Retriever Soccer Park in Catonsville, the top-seeded UMBC men's soccer team can take aim at its third tournament championship in the past four years. But even if the Retrievers fall short in Saturday night's title game against No. 3 seed Hartford at 7 p.m. at Retriever Soccer Park, they may have already cemented a spot in the NCAA tournament's field of 64. UMBC - the America East regular-season champion - is 15-1-2, is ranked sixth in the most recent National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll, and boasts the No. 6 RPI in Division I. That resume might be enough for the selection committee to invite the team to the NCAA tournament, but coach Pete Caringi Jr. tried to tap the brakes on that train of thought.

(For more of Dom's coverage, check out his blog over at the Courant's website .) TRACKING THE TERPS: This UConn team seems to be pretty balanced. Heading into the season what do you think will be the Huskies' greatest strength and biggest question mark? DOM AMORE: Obviously UConn's strength is the backcourt, not only in terms of quality but in terms of experience.

As the No. 1 seed in the America East tournament, the UMBC women's soccer team has worked hard to reap the rewards of that status, capturing the program's first regular-season conference title, earning home-field advantage in the semifinals and final, and enjoying a first-round bye in the quarterfinals. At the same time, however, the expectation is that the Retrievers (11-5-2 overall and 6-2-0 in the league) are the favorites to take home their first tournament championship. And history would appear to be on their side.

But the No. 10 Terps responded with a four-goal run and ended the contest with another four-goal spurt. Hartford coach Peter Lawrence said the players proved that they can compete with top-10 opponents.

UMBC's 13-goal thumping of Vermont last Saturday had a plethora of motivations, but the disappointment of a 15-14 overtime loss to Hartford on March 30 fueled the team. The Retrievers had a one-goal lead until the Hawks scored with 11 seconds in regulation and then 54 seconds into the extra frame in the season-opening America East contest for both sides. Coach Don Zimmerman wasn't shy about admitting that the setback to Hartford inspired UMBC's effort against the Catamounts. “I think it was a combination of things,” he said Tuesday morning.
