Within months after leaving Maryland as a junior in the spring of 2005, John Gilchrist realized he had made a mistake. Sitting in his apartment in Rishon LeZion, a coastal town in Israel where he had begun what would become a nomadic professional basketball career, Gilchrist wrote an email apologizing to his former coach, Gary Williams, and to former Terps assistant Dave Dickerson, by then the head coach at Tulane. "I just basically poured my guts out to them," Gilchrist recalled on a trip back to College Park last month.

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.

COLLEGE PARK - Before he became a two-time state high school basketball player of the year in Virginia and a prized college recruit, Maryland point guard John Gilchrist III was an eighth-grader nicknamed "Bubba," so driven to succeed that he practically worked on his game in the dark. His father, John Jr., can still hear the creaking door at his family's Virginia Beach home, when the sun would be starting to rise on a school day. That was the sound of Bubba, tiptoeing out of the house and slipping up the street and around the corner to shoot and dribble alone at his other home - the neighborhood court.

Steve Blake wonders where his next NBA home will be. So does Juan Dixon, his former backcourt mate with the University of Maryland and the Washington Wizards. Former Terrapins guard John Gilchrist, who recently left Maryland early, after an uneven, three-year stay, just wants to break into the professional ranks. These days, each of the former Terps is dealing with his own version of career limbo. Dixon, Maryland's all-time leading scorer, who led the Terps to their only NCAA title in 2002, is an unrestricted free agent after the Wizards declined to pick up the option on his fourth season.

COLLEGE PARK -- He has jumped in unadulterated joy and collapsed onto the floor in utter devastation. He has smiled and scowled, strutted and sulked. He has flailed his fist in anger and pounded his chest in celebration. And Maryland point guard John Gilchrist has done all those things through the course of a single game. "That is not fake," said Bill Cochrane, Gilchrist's former coach at Salem High (Va.). "That's just John being John. He's not a typical personality, not a typical player."

Coach: Dave Leitao, first season at school, sixth overall (80-69) 2004-05 record: 14-15, 4-12 (tied for 10th in ACC) Returning starters: Sophomore G Sean Singletary, junior G T.J. Bannister, junior G J.R. Reynolds Sun prediction: Losing record Why it will happen: Leitao inherited a team that hasn't had a winning record in the ACC in the past four seasons and hasn't been to the NCAA tournament since 2001. Billy Campbell, the team's lone senior, didn't start any games last year. It's a mystery who is going to generate the frontcourt offense, as no returning forward or center scored more than 4.2 points per game last season.

Sophomore guard Terrell Stoglin tweeted today that he's returning for another year at College Park . That's great news for Stoglin's development, but is it great news for the Terps? Stoglin gradually grew on me this season. At the beginning of the year I posted a blog about whether Stoglin was going to become the next Greivis Vasquez or the next John Gilchrist. At the time, I thought he was leaning toward Gilchrist - a talented player who thought he was better than he really was and would bring an average Maryland team down.

Listening to Mark Turgeon and Terrell Stoglin talk when the season began, you didn't know which would happen first -- the new coach sending the sophomore point guard packing or the sophomore point guard doing his best imitation of a Maryland football player by getting out of College Park as soon as the season was over. There are still several months left for Turgeon and Stoglin to either co-exist or kill each other, at least figuratively speaking. But what we have witnessed the past few weeks could have a rather significant impact on what kind of season the Terps have, and whether or not Stoglin follows the path of John Gilchrist or Greivis Vasquez.

Best recruiting class in more than three decades," read one article. "Each player was rated a consensus top-100 prospect," you were continually reminded. "It's Gary's best class," one of those recruiting experts told you. Four years later, none of it means anything. Today is one of those times when we step back and stare - a tightly wound men's basketball program suddenly resembles an unraveled mess. Senior guard Chris McCray was declared academically ineligible yesterday, meaning his college career is finished.

Brett, Baltimore: Do you think had John Gilchrist had stayed we would be a more dominant team in the ACC? Heather A. Dinich: That's a tough question to answer because while Gilchrist disrupted the team chemistry, he gave the Terps the one thing they don't have this season - a go-to player. Here's the thing, though, if you look at the current ACC standings, Maryland (13-4, 3-2 ACC) is in third place behind Duke and N.C. State. I'm not sure they'd be much farther ahead because of one guy. Gary, Silver Spring: How is John Gilchrist doing in Israel?

NEW YORK - The revival of the Maryland basketball team's season ended on Broadway last night as the Terrapins resorted to the sloppy and uninspired form that was their trademark in this disappointing season. Falling one game short of the opportunity to play for a National Invitation Tournament championship, Maryland was eliminated by South Carolina, 75-67, in the semifinals in front of 12,657 at Madison Square Garden. The Terps (19-13) finished one win shy of reaching the 20-victory plateau for a ninth straight season.
