Even before he took Maryland to its first Final Four in 2001 and led the Terps to their only national championship the following season, Gary Williams had long been a respected member of the college coaching fraternity. On Monday, that opinion was validated when Williams was selected to join the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Williams, 69, will be inducted along with longtime NBA commissioner David Stern, former NBA stars Alonzo Mourning and Mitch Richmond as well as former Arkansas coach Nolan Richardson and former Indiana Pacers coach and commentator Bob “Slick” Leonard in Springfield, Mass., in August.

Baltimore Sun reporters Don Markus and Jeff Barker and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on three of the biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. What impact will the Maryland coaching moves involving Juan Dixon and Dustin Clark have on the team's on-court success?

Former Maryland basketball star Juan Dixon says he received a telephone call over the summer from current Terps coach Mark Turgeon, who asked if it would be all right for incoming freshman Roddy Peters to wear No. 3.

COLLEGE PARK - There was no formal introduction, no hoopla as the leading scorer in Maryland men's basketball history took a seat behind the bench for the first time in his new role. Juan Dixon, dressed in a grey suit and trying hard to fade into a maze of coach Mark Turgeon's bench staff, barely was noticed during an 89-62 victory over Morgan State on Friday. Dixon, hired as Turgeon's special assistant Wednesday, is officially back with at program he led to its lone national championship in 2002, and its first Final Four the previous year.

The biggest overachiever in Maryland basketball history -- maybe in the modern college game -- is trying to beat the odds again. At age 33, a decade after leading the Terps to the NCAA men's championship, three years removed from his last NBA game and now rehabilitating an injured left knee, Juan Dixon is plotting his comeback. "Don't count me out," Dixon said Thursday in his first extensive interview since being banned in February 2010 from playing in Europe after failing a drug test the previous season.

Gary Williams has tried to keep his distance from the Maryland basketball program since he retired in May 2011, allowing Mark Turgeon to build his own program. If that means Turgeon's players being able to wear the honored jerseys that belonged to some of Williams' players, so be it. Even the No. 3 that was last worn by Juan Dixon when he was named the Most Outstanding Player in the 2002 Final Four after leading the Terps to the school's only national championship. "While I was coaching there, I wasn't going to give Juan's jersey to anybody, but at the same time, that is not my decision any more," Williams said. "Mark has every right to do the things the way he wants to do them.

Roddy Peters heard all the chatter this summer when the incoming Maryland freshman point guard's jersey was listed as No. 3, an iconic number in College Park last worn by Maryland Hall of Famer Juan Dixon. But before the team's three-game tour of the Bahamas in early August, Maryland coach Mark Turgeon announced that the former Suitland High star would go down a digit - to No. 2 - and wear a much less notable number. It turns out that Turgeon wasn't the one to nix the idea of Peters wearing a number that hangs from the ceiling of Comcast Center and belongs to Maryland's all-time leading scorer.

ALL OVER Maryland these days, young people admire Juan Dixon, a Baltimore kid with a talent for life and for survival. Yes, of course, he's a basketball player, an athlete of grace and instinct. He and his Terrapin team may be headed for a national championship.
