Maryland has told former basketball players Ernest Graham and Johnny Rhodes that they will soon join 16 other Terps whose names and numbers appear on banners hanging from the Comcast Center rafters. The players — from different eras — confirmed in interviews Thursday with The Baltimore Sun that they have been notified by the athletic department that they will be honored this season. Maryland does not retire basketball numbers. Instead, the school hangs mock jerseys from the roof and holds ceremonies for players.

Read more about Williams' impending induction into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame here . On when Maryland turned the corner “The first year [1989-90] was the NCAA investigation, and the next two years [1990-92], we couldn't play in the NCAA tournament or on live TV [for one]. That next year, I guess it was 1993-94, we weren't very good.

Johnny Rhodes has often been overlooked in the discussion of Maryland's greatest all-time players. That is not surprising, since Rhodes rarely got a ton of credit even as he helped the Terps begin their turnaround under Gary Williams during the mid-1990s. As much as Joe Smith and Keith Booth were the most celebrated players by fans and the media, and for good reason, Rhodes was just as respected by his teammates and coaches. Rhodes finished his career in College Park as one of the best all-around players in program history.

COLLEGE PARK -- In his freshman year at Maryland, Johnny Rhodes shot an erratic 42 percent from the field.Two years later, he turned that around and hit a deadeye 53 percent.Once, he was an indifferent student, failed to score a qualifying 700 on his SAT and had to go to Maine Central Institute before arriving at Maryland.Now, he is an art major who made the athletic director's honor roll with a 3.0 grade-point average in the spring semester of his junior year.Once he roamed the mean streets of Southeast Washington, hung with a bad crowd and paid a price: He was shot twice in the upper left leg in the middle of his sophomore season at Dunbar of D.C.Today, his mother, Lucy, still lives in Southeast, but Rhodes' lifestyle has climbed to a new stratosphere: He has a chance to play in the NBA next season, and his girlfriend attends Harvard Law School.

After finishing their college basketball careers at the University of Maryland in 1996, Exree Hipp and Johnny Rhodes took their hoop dreams to faraway places. Hipp went to Brazil, Rhodes to Taiwan and Italy. They continue to travel the world, and, as they were in College Park, they are teammates. Tonight will be a homecoming of sorts for the two former Terrapins when their current team, the Harlem Globetrotters, makes a visit to the Towson Center. "It's like being in college for us," Hipp said earlier this week by telephone from Wheeling, W. Va. Except they didn't play nearly 200 games a year at Maryland.

Looking back: Maryland beat Detroit, 79-54, on Sunday, then used a big second-half run in blowing out Monmouth, 91-55, on Tuesday. Looking ahead: After a 10-day break for final exams, the Terps travel to Oklahoma on Friday. Of note: Having dispatched Illinois and Detroit, Maryland's 82-game, nonconference, home-court winning streak should be safe for another year. By the numbers: With 269 career steals, Dixon needs seven more to pass Tyrone Bogues and move into third place in ACC history.

WASHINGTON -- The Duke-Kansas game was four hours away as a high school phenom named Johnny Rhodes sat in his living room, staring at his collection of 30 trophies and talking about "the score."This wasn't another game. This was something else indeed. "The score" foremost in Johnny Rhodes' thoughts last night wasn't the one in Indianapolis. It was the one on his SAT.After two tries, he still is not close to 700, the minimum standard he needs to earn consideration for a basketball scholarship to the college of his choice, the University of Maryland.

On the walls of his office hang poster-sized magazine covers and other reminders of Final Fours and four decades of basketball victories. But Gary Williams — as driven and intense as ever — still sometimes wears the haunted look of a man who coaches a sport in which an NCAA tournament game can be lost on a buzzer beater because an opposing player ducked. At 65, the Maryland coach — who is being inducted Thursday night into the Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards' "Hall of Legends" — has a memory full of the sort of detailed basketball information that all but coaches and fantasy leaguers might consider arcane.

A look back: The Terps survived their only scare at home this year by erasing a 10-point halftime deficit and edging Wake Forest on Sunday, 90-89. Maryland then blew out Florida State on Wednesday, 96-63. A look ahead: Maryland plays its last game at Cole Field House on Sunday against Virginia. Then it's on to the conference tournament in Charlotte. Of note: With a victory on Sunday, Gary Williams would move into sixth place with 267 ACC wins. Worth watching: Senior guard Juan Dixon, as he chases two records.
