WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- The cheering section will be there today behind the visitors' bench at Lawrence Joel Coliseum, just as it has been for Matt Kovarik's first two years at Maryland when the Terrapins come to play Wake Forest.But today there will be a difference.The family and friends who drive from nearby Greensboro to root for Kovarik will know that the redshirt junior guard not only will play but likely will be a contributor. And unlike just about everyone else, they hope for something that hasn't happened here in a while.

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.

COLLEGE PARK -- Matt Kovarik misplaced his confidence a year ago at the University of Maryland, and quickly slipped into the Bermuda Triangle of basketball teams.He disappeared -- to the end of a thin bench.Exactly how or why his confidence deserted the 6-foot-5 sophomore guard is unclear, even now."I struggled early and I'm not sure why," Kovarik, now a junior, said yesterday. "It was all mental. Everyone struggles at some point. That was my time. I don't plan on going back to it."This season, Kovarik is a shining symbol of Maryland's new, improved bench.

COLLEGE PARK -- Gary Williams tried a big lineup, a small one and about a dozen in between, but the only experiment anyone wanted to talk about last night was the one he eye-balled at point guard.Maryland routed UMBC, 104-66, before an announced crowd of 13,913 at Cole Field House. The only suspense occurred when the lineups were announced, and senior point guard Matt Kovarik started instead of junior Terrell Stokes.Williams said he isn't sure who will start at the point in the Terps' next game, Dec. 22 against UNC-Asheville.

ATLANTA -- Gary Williams used the kind of lineup he was often forced to play at American University 15 years ago. Keith Booth displayed the quickness and strength that he hadn't shown in weeks. And the rest of the Maryland Terrapins played as they did earlier in the season.It wasn't always smooth last night against Georgia Tech at Alexander Memorial Coliseum, but a small lineup and a big game from Booth helped the 14th-ranked Terrapins to one of their most important victories of the season.

COLLEGE PARK -- With all the attention center Joe Smith and forward Keith Booth have received, it's easy to think that the Maryland basketball team's freshman class consists of only two players.Although Smith of Norfolk, Va., and Booth of Baltimore are projected as immediate starters and potential stars, freshmen Nick Bosnic and Matt Kovarik also could find their way into coach Gary Williams' rotation for different reasons."Some of the other guys have tremendous expectations on them, but nobody knows about us," Kovarik said yesterday.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- He ducked and weaved, spun and stutter stepped, threaded through defenders, scored 18 first-half points and drove himself nearly to exhaustion.Utah State guard Marcus Saxon demonstrated yesterday why some NBA teams consider him a potential first-round draft choice. But he wasn't nearly enough."I don't think at this level, the NCAA tournament, that one guy is going to beat you too often," said Maryland coach Gary Williams after his team slowed down Saxon and pulled away to an 82-68 victory in the West Regional.
