In their minds, it's still unfolding. Korie Lucious is making his 3-pointer and slowly turning to run down court, his mouth guard dangling from his lips, as green-clad Michigan State teammates rush from the bench to greet him. For Maryland's three starting seniors, the last moments of their 85-83 NCAA tournament loss are like a ringing in their ears that won't quite be silenced. "I see it all the time," said forward Landon Milbourne, one of the three starting Terrapins for whom the Lucious shot on March 21 is the final memory of otherwise bright college careers.

WASHINGTON - Only four days after George Washington University unveiled its new basketball court at the Charles E. Smith Center, several former Terps and local players had the honor of being among the first to play on it as part of the Basketball Alumni Legends League's Pro Basketball Series. The league, founded by Michael Wranovics in 2012, is intended to give professional basketball players who are not at the NBA level an outlet to showcase their talents during the summer. By pitting local stars against one another, Wranovics hopes to generate fan interest and create immediate team chemistry.

Morgan State guard Reggie Holmes (St. Frances) and Maryland forward Landon Milbourne have been chosen to play in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, where they'll join 65 other seniors seeking to impress NBA and overseas scouts. The 12-game tournament runs April 7-10 in Portsmouth, Va. Both will play on the Sales Systems LTD team. Holmes, the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Player of the Year, is the first Bear to play at Portsmouth and is trying to become the first Morgan State player in the NBA since Marvin Webster (1975-1987)

On Sunday night, Jordan Williams retreated to his room to watch the National Invitation Tournament selection show. The Maryland center wasn't tuning in to find out whether the Terps (19-14) would be invited — he figured that was a lock — but to learn whom the team would be playing and when. "I fully expected us to be a top seed in that tournament," the sophomore said. "For us not to be in was crazy. " It was a jarring end to the season for Maryland — the sort of ending that makes players and coaches yearn for the next season to swiftly arrive so they can write a new ending.

COLLEGE PARK - The preseason predictions can be put away like a pair of worn-out sneakers. They are not the only things that Maryland wants to bury when the Terrapins open the 2008-2009 season tonight against Bucknell at Comcast Center. "We don't want to make the same mistakes we made last year with teams that are not in our conference," junior forward Landon Milbourne said. "We've got to come out and play hard every single day." In a 19-15 season that ended with a second-round loss in the National Invitation Tournament, Maryland had several letdowns, including back-to-back home defeats in December to Ohio and American.

Sure, it's 90 degrees out. But what is stopping us from looking ahead for a moment to the hoops season? Absolutely nothing. So let's proceed. What do you think of coach Gary Williams' recent tweet? The one in which he said: "With Greivis [Vasquez] back and our '09 class and the rest of our team improving every day, I truly believe we have the chance to be top 25 next year." Here's my take: Maryland could be a Top 25 team, but some things would need to happen. Vasquez coming back for his senior season is welcome news for Maryland, but it still needs more offense.

Maryland basketball coach Gary Williams has an unusually large incoming class this season — and he isn't ruling out starting one of the newcomers. "We have an interesting team because we have six veteran players and six new players," Williams said in an interview Wednesday in his Comcast Center office. Maryland has two returning starters in sophomore forward Jordan Williams and junior guard Sean Mosley (St. Frances). There is expected to be competition for the remaining spots.

COLLEGE PARK - A year ago, a distracted Maryland men's basketball team came into its last game before final exams dismissing its opponent. Not only did the Terps lose to Ohio that night, but they also lost to American in their first game after finals. Last night, Maryland was neither distracted by nor dismissive of Delaware State. The Terps came out firing from all distances and scoring with ease. Maryland built its lead to double digits in the first seven minutes, to as many as 23 points in the first half and cruised to an 86-58 victory before a Comcast Center crowd that was announced at 17,014 but could not have been more than 5,000.

Each year, Maryland hangs photos of its seniors in the men's basketball offices at Comcast Center. So it was that framed action shots of Dino Gregory, Cliff Tucker and Adrian Bowie went up before the season began. After that, not everything went according to plan. The senior trio — which will be honored today before its final home game, against Virginia — presided over a team that, with six newcomers, has failed to approach the standards set by its recent predecessors. If college is about learning lessons, the one imparted on Gregory, Tucker and Bowie is that life — and basketball specifically — doesn't always go as planned.

There is a revealing statistic about last season's Maryland team, which tied eventual national champion Duke atop the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season standings. Like this year's team, the 2009-10 Terps played in plenty of close conference games. The difference is, they usually won them. From Feb. 4, 2010, until the end of the regular-season schedule, Maryland played seven games decided by single digits. The Terps — led by the animated, ultra-competitive Greivis Vasquez, who returns to Comcast Center to be honored at Sunday's N.C. State game — won all seven.

Sean Mosley began nodding his head even before the question was finished. Had Maryland's co-captain, who had been struggling with his shooting until recently, been passing up good looks at the basket? That can be a telltale sign of a player overthinking on the court. "I wasn't taking open shots," Mosley acknowledged. "Now I'm not thinking about it. And when I do get it, I'm shooting. " For weeks, Mosley's difficulties had seemed a delicate topic around Comcast Center. As the Terps (16-8, 5-4 Atlantic Coast Conference)

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.

As the college basketball season began, Maryland coach Gary Williams seemed to issue a challenge to his three senior starters: Adrian Bowie, Dino Gregory and Cliff Tucker. "As a player, you always want your chance. Well, here it is," the coach said. So how have the seniors -- who entered the season having spent more time as reserves than starters -- answered the call so far? The statistics show that, through the first seven games, the players are all contributing more than last season.

Maryland coach Gary Williams was asked this week if his basketball team had the makings of something great. Williams answered quickly. "Not yet," he said. "It's way too early. We haven't done anything yet. I think you're measured by who you play. " By that definition, it will soon be easier to chart the progress of the Terrapins (3-0), who play No. 5 Pitt (3-0) Thursday night in the 2K Sports Classic benefitting Coaches vs. Cancer at New York's Madison Square Garden. It will be the first test for the Terps — who have six newcomers this season — against a ranked team.

COLLEGE PARK - -Landon Milbourne and Sean Mosley responded without hesitating. What, the two Maryland Terrapins starters were asked, is the most challenging workout drill you have been asked to perform at the school? "The hardest one we do is the '22,' " Milbourne said. Mosley agreed. "The first couple of weeks there are a lot of guys just dreading it," he said. The "22" is so named because players are asked to sprint the length of the court twice in 22 seconds or less.

COLLEGE PARK - Greivis Vasquez hit a three-point shot, stopped cold on the Comcast Center floor and wiggled his hips in celebration before heading downcourt. The Terrapins had scored 12 points in a row to take a 17-point lead on Virginia in the final moments of the first half. But kneeling in front of the bench, Maryland coach Gary Williams looked uncomfortable, and why not? Two games ago, Williams watched his team lose an identical 17-point lead in a two-point loss at Miami, so Williams knew it was far too early for hip shimmies or high-fives.

Maryland began the evening by unveiling a new red and white banner marking last season's achievement of tying Duke atop the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season standings. That was one of the few things at Comcast Center that seemed tied to last season. So much else was new. Maryland's season-opening 105-76 victory over Seattle University was marked by mistakes (the Terps had 29 turnovers) but also by the flashy performances of its new players -- particularly freshman guards Terrell Stoglin (15 points, five assists)

Feeling the pressure of replacing three senior starters, most members of the Maryland men's basketball team remained close to campus over the summer. The players participated in pickup games with Maryland alumni such as Steve Blake, lifted weights and ate meals together. They couldn't have remained closer to Comcast Center if they had slept there. In fact, a small group did just that. "Actually, we lived in Comcast for a little while," said senior forward Dino Gregory. "In a lounge room with video and stuff.
