The Maryland women's basketball team's high-powered offense finally met its match. Though the Terrapins came in as a scoring powerhouse, Miami guard Riquna Williams gave them a taste of their own medicine Thursday night. Williams put together an impressive performance to lead No. 13 Miami to a 75-63 victory over No. 5 Maryland at BankUnited Center. It was the Terrapins' first loss of the season. "We knew how hard it was to come in here and play," Maryland coach Brenda Frese said.

A tropical cyclone named Gonzalo became the year's sixth hurricane as it moved through the Virgin Island on Monday afternoon. The storm was about 20 miles southeast of St. Martin with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph as of Monday afternoon, and hurricane warnings were issued for the British Virgin Islands as it moved to the northwest. It was expected to strengthen into a major hurricane, with winds of at least 110 mph, by Wednesday, but is not forecast to be over land at that time.

The alternatives were order and chaos when Florida State's Gerry Thomas sent that 34-yard field goal toward the uprights late Saturday afternoon.Had Thomas made the kick, Florida State would have beaten Miami and the college football season could well have proceeded into chaos, with as many as five teams having a reasonable shot at the national championship.But when the kick flew wide of the right upright, giving the Hurricanes a 17-16 win, the process became as ordered as a suburban neighborhood.

As a tropical cyclone churned the Atlantic Ocean this month, a drone watched from above, dropping a paper-towel-roll-sized set of sensors attached to a parachute through the clouds on a 20-minute, 10-mile journey. The instruments revealed dry air low in the storm's center - something scientists from the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center suspect was the nascent eye of Hurricane Edouard. The storm went on to become the Atlantic's first to reach winds of more than 110 mph since Sandy in 2012, though it never threatened the United States.

MIAMI - As if last month wasn't bad enough, federal hurricane forecasters boosted their outlook yesterday, predicting this season could spawn as many as 21 tropical storms and 11 hurricanes, with seven of them ballooning into intense storms. That's a fairly sharp increase over the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's May prediction, released two weeks before the June 1 start of the six-month season. That outlook called for 12 to 15 tropical storms and seven to nine hurricanes, with three to five of them becoming major ones.

William Gray, a professor of atmospheric sciences at Colorado State University and one of the nation's most respected hurricane experts, has predicted that six hurricanes will develop in the Atlantic this season.Of those, he said, two will be "severe" storms, with sustained winds above 111 mph.That is close to the long-term average for the Atlantic basin: 5.8 hurricanes, of which 2.2 qualify as "intense."On Aug. 7, Gray also said, based on his statistical models, that there was a 66 percent chance that one intense hurricane would strike the U.S. Atlantic or Gulf coast between August and November.

MIAMI -- The buildup began last winter, from the moment the football teams from Florida State and Miami left Pro Player Stadium after the FedEx Orange Bowl knowing their next game was eight months away -- against each other. The hype grew this summer, as the Atlantic Coast Conference prepared to welcome the Hurricanes and set the stage for the first league matchup between its two top teams. The wait, which included a four-day postponement because of Hurricane Frances, is over. The No. 4 Seminoles will meet the No. 5 Hurricanes tonight at the Orange Bowl.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Someday, Austin Moherman and Steve Bellisari might become a better quarterback tandem than Joe Germaine and Stanley Jackson. Ken-Yon Rambo might prove more a dangerous receiver than David Boston. Ohio State has a track record for replacing great players with even better ones.But this time, it's going to take some time. It didn't happen in yesterday's Kickoff Classic at Giants Stadium.The game belonged to Miami, a young team looking to rejoin football's elite. The Hurricanes took a step in that direction by beating Ohio State, 23-12, before 73,037.

The storm reached Category 2 strength early Monday morning, with maximum sustained winds of 105 mph as of 11 a.m., according to the National Hurricane Center. It is about 655 miles east-southeast of Bermuda. Hurricane center forecasters expect Edouardo could become the year's first major hurricane by Monday night.

Cristobal reached hurricane status late Monday, and though the storm is expected to stay clear of land, National Hurricane Center forecasters warned of dangerous rip currents expected up the East Coast. The cyclone was about 600 miles southwest of Bermuda as of 8 a.m. Tuesday, with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph making it a weak hurricane. It is expected to strengthen some over the next couple of days. But while it is forecast to pass safely between the U.S. Atlantic coast and Bermuda, it is expected to churn up dangerous surf in Ocean City and elsewhere, according to the hurricane center.

A system of rain and thunderstorms about 350 miles east of the Lesser Antilles islands could become the third named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season within the next several days, according to the National Hurricane Center. Forecasters give it a 70 percent chance of forming into a tropical cyclone, which would be named Tropical Storm Cristobal, within five days. While it's still too early to forecast any track or intensity with any certainty, models suggest it could track across Puerto Rico, Hispaniola and Cuba, then the Bahamas and Florida.

Bertha, the Atlantic's second named storm of the season, became the second to reach hurricane status as well Monday morning. The storm had maximum sustained winds of 80 mph as of 11 a.m., according to the National Hurricane Center. It was about 230 miles northeast of the Bahamas, and is forecast to pass about midway between the U.S. Atlantic coast and Bermuda, not directly affecting either. The hurricane center forecasts little change in Bertha's strength Monday and most of Tuesday, before the storm is expected to weaken.

The tropics are quiet nearly a month into the Atlantic hurricane season, and that could eventually mean the season's latest start since at least 2004. No tropical cyclones have formed yet this year, whereas in each of the past nine years, a tropical storm has developed in May or June. The National Hurricane Center does not forecast any cyclone development within the next 48 hours, and there are no areas it is eyeing for storm development within the next five days, either. Last year, Tropical Storm Andrea formed June 5, while in 2012, Tropical Storm Alberto came before the season's official June 1 start, on May 19. In 2011, tropical storm Arlene formed June 28, a mark we are sure to surpass this weekend.

The National Hurricane Center on Wednesday designated its first area of interest for possible tropical cyclone formation, a gathering of thunderstorms in the Gulf of Mexico. Forecasters called it a "complex low pressure area" in the southern Bay of Campeche, near Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, with disorganized rain showers and thunderstorms. The system is expected to move inland over eastern Mexico by Saturday, but strong upper-level winds are expected to inhibit further development for now. They gave it a 20 percent chance of forming into a tropical cyclone within the next five days.
