COLLEGE PARK - They range from the serviceable Mike Mardesich to the steady Lonny Baxter to the superstar Joe Smith. The list includes Obinna Ekezie, who went from project to pro prospect in College Park; Keith Booth, who returns to his alma mater as an assistant coach this season; and, most recently, Jamar Smith, who led the team in rebounding and was second in scoring a season ago. Such post players have been critical to Gary Williams' success as...

With the school's first regular-season title and the No. 1 seed in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament locked up, Morgan State coach Todd Bozeman could have been forgiven if he wanted to give his starters a breather last night. But when the opponent is Coppin State, and with city bragging rights on the line, the Forestville native knew that taking this game lightly was not an option. Despite being without leading scorer Jamar Smith (foot injury), the Bears took the Eagles' best shots and still came away with a hard-fought 68-64 victory on Senior Night before an announced 4,500 last night at Hill Field House.

COLLEGE PARK - Jamar Smith scored 22 points, John Gilchrist had 20 and Maryland cranked up its defense in the second half to defeat No. 9 North Carolina, 90-84, last night at Comcast Center. After yielding a season-high 49 points in the first half, Maryland (10-3, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) put the clamps on a powerful offense that surpassed 100 points in each of its first two conference games. Sean May scored 18 points and Raymond Felton added 16 for the Tar Heels (10-3, 1-2), who have lost five straight regular- season games to Maryland.

Over the first three weeks of the college basketball season, Morgan State narrowly missed a pair of big-time upsets after failing to finish off Connecticut and Miami. Facing cross-town rival UMBC last night, however, it was a painfully slow start that doomed the visiting Bears. Morgan State made only two of its first 17 shots from the field, building an early 20-point lead before fending off a furious second-half rally in an 84-76 victory before 2,451 at RAC Arena.

COLLEGE PARK - Jamar Smith might be performing like a star for the Maryland Terrapins these days, but you won't catch the 6-foot-9 center promoting himself. Minutes after he dragged the Terps to an overtime victory against No. 15 Wisconsin on Tuesday with his best game in a Maryland uniform, Smith fidgeted and deflected praise while facing a parade of media interviews at his locker. But after Smith's season-opening salvo in Maryland's 4-0 start, after he scored a career-high 25 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, after he finished the Badgers with six points in overtime, after he posted his fourth consecutive double double, the questions are following him. Has Smith, the second-year senior who cut his collegiate teeth at the junior college powerhouse Allegany College, begun to sharpen the identity of an extremely young team?

COLLEGE PARK - Jamar Smith had put up some good numbers against lower-tier competition. Last night, the Maryland Terrapins' senior center carried his team in the clutch against a big-time opponent. Smith scored a career-high 25 points, grabbed 12 rebounds, and gave the Terps the final push they needed in overtime, as Maryland outlasted No. 15 Wisconsin, 73-67, in a hard-fought Atlantic Coast Conference-Big Ten Challenge basketball contest before a sellout crowd of 17,950 at Comcast Center.

COLLEGE PARK - Jamar Smith finished last season with some solid efforts against Xavier and Michigan State in the NCAA tournament. He might finish this one as an afterthought. Wake Forest doesn't have a scholarship senior on its roster, and Maryland might as well not have had one during the last 19 minutes at the Comcast Center yesterday. Last season was Smith's first as a transfer from Allegany Community College. He frequently made his presence felt in the low post. He has started every game at center for the fading Terps this season, and yesterday his eight-minute contribution produced one assist and one blocked shot.

Morgan State's undefeated status in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference was short-lived. After remaining atop the league for almost a month after beating cross-town rival Coppin State, the Bears fought a futile uphill battle last night and suffered a heartbreaking, 62-59 defeat to visiting Florida A&M. The Rattlers made two crucial plays in the final minute to overcome Morgan's 57-56 lead - its first since the opening basket - and then withstood two...

COLLEGE PARK - With 11 days and two games against nonconference opponents standing between them and the resumption of their Atlantic Coast Conference schedule, the Maryland Terrapins have no shortage of items on their wish list. The Terps want to curtail the scoring droughts that have cropped up during their 7-3 start, whether because of poor shooting, sloppy ball-handling, bad shot selection or ignoring the extra pass. They want to string together something close to 40 minutes of maximum effort, which they most recently failed to do while falling behind by 14 points early in Sunday's loss at Florida State in their conference opener.

A look back: The Terps blew out Florida State on Sunday, 84-63, then rallied to win at Virginia, 91-87, last night. A look ahead: Maryland plays host to North Carolina State on Sunday, then has a week off before traveling to North Carolina on Feb. 10. Of note: The Terps own a 13-game home winning streak dating to last season, including a 10-0 start of the current season. Worth watching: The next stop for Allegany College 6-foot-8 sophomore forward Jamar Smith looks like Maryland. The Terps have one more scholarship to give to next year's incoming class, and there is strong speculation that Smith, one of the top players for Allegany (18-2)
