COLLEGE PARK The ultimate team player never complained when asked to guard a man 5 inches taller or 40 pounds heavier.The ultimate team player never balked when his job assignment was defense and rebounding, the unheralded jobs of college basketball.Keith Booth, Maryland's ultimate team player, does the dirty work and the odd jobs for the Terps, and he does them happily.But in the past month, a curious thing happened.The ultimate team player became a significant offensive weapon.Now, with the Terps on the threshold of their third straight NCAA tournament appearance, Booth, a junior, has become a big scorer and the dominating player Maryland, Duke and Kentucky all thought him to be when they recruited him at Dunbar High three years ago.Three times since the beginning of February, the 6-foot-6 power forward has scored career highs.

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.

COLLEGE PARK -- The 18-foot jumpers, delivered with near-flawless form, fall gently into the bottom of the net. The three-pointers, from behind an imaginary arc and from a distance used in the NBA, are made with more than respectable accuracy.Then come the free throws."I want you to hit 26 of 30," Andy Enfield tells his latest disciple.After two of the first three are missed, the shooter screams in mock horror.Then he bears down.One, two 33 in a row."I can't say I've ever made that many," says the shooter.

Former Maryland basketball star and assistant coach Keith Booth, who has spent the past two years as an assistant women's coach at Loyola, was added Tuesday to the men's staff by newly named men's head coach G.G. Smith. Booth, 38, left College Park after Gary Williams retired in 2011 and Mark Turgeon retained only one member of the previous staff, Bino Ranson.  Booth, who grew up in Baltimore and starred at Dunbar, wanted to stay in the area with his daughter in high school and took a job on the women's team.

COLLEGE PARK -- Their profiles have changed since high school. Where once Keith Booth was considered among the country's blue-chip stars, he is now a blue-collar senior whose coach feels he is unappreciated. Where once Matt Harpring was lightly regarded as a big-time college prospect, he is now an All-American.But certain things about these two forwards are remarkably similar.With the departure of Joe Smith two years ago and four seniors after last season, Maryland is Booth's team. With the backcourt of Stephon Marbury and Drew Barry gone from a team that won last season's Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season championship, Georgia Tech is Harpring's.

As a fledgling coach fresh out of graduate school at Maryland, Andy Enfield worked with Keith Booth at Cole Field House on his 3-point shooting right before the former Terps star was drafted in the first round by the Chicago Bulls in 1997. As an assistant coach the past five years at Florida State, Enfield returned here for games with the Seminoles. It will be a little different Friday night when Enfield, who starred at Johns Hopkins from 1987 through 1991 and remains the school's all-time scoring leader, brings his own team — Florida Gulf Coast — to Comcast Center to play the Terps . But Enfield will not be the only member of Florida Gulf Coast's traveling party with local ties.

On the day Mark Turgeon finalized his coaching staff, the Maryland men's basketball coach received some additional good news when Nick Faust reaffirmed his commitment to the Terps. Faust, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard from City, had reopened his recruitment Thursday -- just one day after Turgeon was introduced as Gary Williams' successor. But after a meeting with Turgeon in College Park on Tuesday night, the Baltimore Sun first-team All-Metro selection offered his pledge to the new coach.

Maryland coach Gary Williams won't commit to using the same starting lineup after a loss to Temple in which the starters — except center Jordan Williams — came under criticism. The Terps (6-3) host UNC-Greensboro (0-7) on Wednesday night. The lineup "will be clear at about 6:15 [Tuesday night after practice] and I'm not going to tweet it," the coach said Tuesday. "Why would you tell Greensboro who we're going to start? I'm not that nice. " Senior starters Cliff Tucker, Adrian Bowie and Dino Gregory and junior starter Sean Mosley all found themselves benched for extended periods of the 64-61 loss to Temple on Sunday night in the BB&T Classic in Washington D.C. "The best message is the second half when we subbed.

Entering the NCAA tournament, the Maryland Terrapins were desperately playing for time. The Terps were trying to extend a memorable season and keep their three starting seniors' college careers alive at least one more game. Maryland, the No. 4 seed, survived 26 points by Houston guard Aubrey Coleman and beat the 13th-seeded Cougars, 89-77, to advance to a second-round meeting with fifth-seeded Michigan State here Sunday for a spot in the Sweet Sixteen. It was the 10th straight victory for Maryland in a first-round NCAA game dating back to 1998.

A positive sign for the Maryland basketball team came in the number of shots Greivis Vasquez missed Friday night, as well as the number of passes the senior guard made that turned into easy baskets for the Terrapins. Those numbers added up to an 89-51 victory over Charleton Southern in the season opener at Comcast Center. Despite shooting 3-for-14 from the field and finishing with just nine points, Vasquez had 13 assists to set the tone for the Terps, who shared the ball (27 assists)

University of Maryland men's basketball coach Gary Williams put the finishing touches on his new-look coaching staff yesterday by adding one of the best players in Terrapins history. Keith Booth, a former star at Dunbar who went on to become one of Williams' signature recruits in College Park, was announced yesterday as the Terps' new assistant coach, replacing former teammate Matt Kovarik. After three years on Williams' bench, Kovarik is likely to return to law school. Mike Lonergan, who guided Division III Catholic University to a 251-88 record over 12 seasons and a national championship in 2001, also joined the staff in April, replacing Jimmy Patsos, whose 13-year tenure as an assistant ended when he became head coach at Loyola.

There were no chants of "Boooooooooooth," as there used to be at Cole Field House when he was playing basketball for Maryland. But Keith Booth, the former Terps star turned assistant coach, got his share of attention at Ravens camp in Westminster yesterday. And most of it had to do with the commitment the Terps just received from St. Frances star Sean Mosley, the latest Baltimore player to announce he was headed to College Park. "As a young player growing up in Baltimore, having the opportunity to play at the University of Maryland and come back as a coach, it's really good to walk around and be recognized for things that you've accomplished.
