Ever since the days he would sit wide-eyed, watching the late Len Bias play, Keith Booth has been enamored of the Maryland Terrapins. So those close to the Dunbar star weren't surprised when he announced his college choice."

Three days before Maryland opens basketball practice, coach Gary Williams was in Baltimore doing what comes naturally: selling basketball in general and Maryland in particular.Now, though, the hard sell has become the soft sell."When I got to Maryland, I was told we couldn't recruit here because of things that happened in the past," Williams said yesterday, addressing the CEO Club of Baltimore at the USF&G building. "But I was too stubborn or dumb to listen."The basketball oasis once closed to Maryland has been reopened.

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.

How did all this happen at Maryland?How did the Terps run up a 17-4 record and become one of the top 10 basketball teams in the country? They're No. 8 this week.How did Maryland, which was only 8-8 in the Atlantic Coast Conference last year (7-2 now), get to where it is -- facing No. 1 North Carolina at College Park tonight in a game that could tie the Terps for first place in the ACC?The students at Maryland obviously think Joe Smith is the answer.At the Virginia game last week, a banner was unfurled at Cole Field House that said: "On the eighth day God created Joe Smith."

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.
