COLLEGE PARK -- When Chris Kerwin came to the University of Maryland two years ago, he was neither physically nor emotionally ready for the experience. He was a bit overwhelmed by it all.At 6 feet 10 and a frail-looking 205 pounds, Kerwin did not fit the image of a big-time college center. And the two years he had spent at Old Dominion did not prepare him for playing in the Atlantic Coast Conference."Cedric [Lewis] used to block my shots in practice every day," said Kerwin.And Maryland coach Gary Williams yelled at Kerwin nearly as of ten. But the combination toughened him to the point, where, after sitting out a year in accordance with NCAA rules, Kerwin thought he was ready to play in the ACC last season.

COLLEGE PARK -- Chris Kerwin's former teammates at Old Dominion used to call him "Bambi," not for his deerlike dexterity or swiftness, but because, like the animated fawn, Kerwin had a hard time staying on his feet."

COLLEGE PARK -- There were times during preseason practice when it didn't look as if Chris Kerwin would make it to Maryland's first game. And there were times at the beginning of the regular season when it didn't look as if Kerwin would last until the end.But here it is, less than two weeks before the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, and the 6-foot-10, 220-pound junior center is holding up. A little worse for wear, his forehead still a bit swollen and...

COLLEGE PARK -- The first half of Chris Kerwin's senior season at the University of Maryland was, in many ways, exactly what he expected. It was also more than what others had expected from him.The 6-foot-10 center had made consistent contributions through Maryland's first 14 games, offensively and defensively. It culminated with a career-high 13 points, as well as nine rebounds and two blocked shots, in an upset of then 12th-ranked Oklahoma on Jan. 19 at the Baltimore Arena."I had a lot of confidence going," Kerwin said this week.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Duane Simpkins spent most of his freshman season at the University of Maryland buried on the bench, frustrated with his playing time, confused about his future.But the highly touted point guard from DeMatha High picked an opportune moment -- the preliminary game of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament -- to show what all the hoopla wasabout.Simpkins, whose playing time has increased in recent weeks, came off the bench with a fervor last night. He scored 14 points and sparked the Terrapins to a 76-55 victory over North Carolina State before 17,978 at the Charlotte Coliseum.

Cal Ripken as the object of collectors' affection is not just a local phenomenon. Baltimore remains the center of activity and the source of many collectibles, but more out-of-towners are signing on as Ripken approaches Lou Gehrig's streak.That's why Mark Kerwin, devoted Indians fan from Cleveland, was in Pikesville last weekend at a card show -- to buy, sell and swap Ripken items.He began collecting Ripkeniana in 1991 and started dealing by mail the next year. He went to Baltimore-area shows and discovered that collectors wanted "oddball" items, not regular-issue cards.

COLLEGE PARK -- Don't judge him by the final sequence, when he was too tired, too confused, too overwhelmed to tie the score. Kevin McLinton is the reason Maryland remains competitive in this trying season. Kevin McLinton is the reason Maryland was in the game.All he did yesterday was score 21 of the Terps' final 27 points to rally them from a 15-point second-half deficit. If only he could have finished what he started, instead of missing an off-balance, 40-footer with one second left to seal Maryland's 87-84 loss to Florida State.

One of the traits of Gary Williams' teams at the University o Maryland has been their ability to play their best basketball when their backs are up against the wall.Never had the Terrapins been dealing with as much adversity on the court as they were coming into last night's game against 12th-ranked Oklahoma at the Baltimore Arena. And never has Maryland played as well under such conditions.After being thoroughly outplayed in their first four Atlantic Coast Conference games, the Terps played their best game of the season and shocked the Sooners, 89-78.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Evers Burns was a better football player than basketball player in high school. Chris Kerwin is so skinny, he lists a dietary supplement as his favorite food.The two Maryland big men are senior leaders, hard workers, self-made players. But against top-notch ACC competition, they look as comfortable as two priests at a Madonna concert.Take yesterday's 101-73 loss to No. 6 North Carolina, when, in an all-too-revealing first half, they were outscored 26-2 by their Tar Heels counterparts, Eric Montross and George Lynch.

COLLEGE PARK -- This isn't supposed to be the way it works for major college basketball teams. The seniors are usually there to settle down the freshmen, especially in their first game.The University of Maryland didn't get off and running in its 1992-93 debut against UMBC last night at Cole Field House. Off and stumbling would be more precise. That's when the freshmen jumped in. And, in Exree Hipp's case, we do mean jump.Led by Hipp, who had one of the most impressive debuts in Maryland history, the Terrapins reversed an early 11-point deficit and quieted the Retrievers, 103-80.
