Boston-- --Someone asked a few players from the Maryland women's basketball team whether they felt a connection to the George Mason men, who were also making a surprising Final Four appearance this weekend. The answer, of course, was no. In fact, these Terps expected a No. 1 seed when the NCAA tournament brackets were announced March 13. And truth be told, while George Mason is getting lauded all across the nation, Maryland just suffered a major slap to the face. Entering the biggest game of the season, the Terps' biggest player was denied one of the game's biggest honors.

WNBA Langhorne set for Washington homecoming When Mike Thibault arrived in Washington two years ago with the assignment of rebuilding the Mystics, part of the process included having to relay disappointing news to longer-tenured players that they would not be part of the franchise's future. The most emphatic of those moves came on WNBA draft night when Thibault engineered a deal that sent Crystal Langhorne to the Seattle Storm in exchange for Tianna Hawkins and the No. 7 pick, who wound up being Bria Hartley.

Freshman Crystal Langhorne joined the Maryland women's basketball team as the top-ranked power forward in the nation and a first-team McDonald's, Parade, and Street & Smith's selection. Those accolades, however, didn't mean much during the Terps' second game of the season. Langhorne, a 6-foot-3 center from Willingboro, N.J., was starting her first home game against Siena at Comcast Center . But she was faring badly on the defensive end of the court. Maryland coach Brenda Frese, displeased with what she would later call Langhorne's "matador defense," pulled the freshman and played her for just 20 minutes in the Terps' 73-52 win. "I wasn't playing defense, and she took me out," recalled Langhorne, who posted six points, three rebounds and three turnovers in one of her shortest outings of the year.

With Alyssa Thomas chasing two of the most revered records in Maryland women's basketball history and less than a week from the senior's final regular-season home game, Terps coach Brenda Frese couldn't resist a little ruse at the expense of the two-time Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year. Frese brought Thomas to the floor of Comcast Center after a practice last week, saying the two needed to discuss an issue. The mysterious directive led Thomas to believe her coach was a tad cross.

Having passed Vicky Bullett on the Maryland women's basketball all-time scoring and rebounding lists this season, forward Crystal Langhorne joined her yesterday as the only Terps women to be named Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year.

For four years, Crystal Langhorne and Laura Harper were inseparable on the Maryland women's basketball team's front line, not to mention their time together on a Philadelphia-area Amateur Athletic Union team before that. The pair, integral pieces of the Terps' 2006 national championship effort, were sent to opposite coasts yesterday in the WNBA draft. Langhorne, Maryland's all-time leading scorer and rebounder, was taken sixth overall by the Washington Mystics. Harper, the Terps' career leader in blocked shots, went four picks later to the Sacramento Monarchs.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland freshman center Crystal Langhorne put on a dominating performance last night against Massachusetts. Langhorne nearly outscored the Minutewomen by herself in the first half and finished with 26 points and 10 rebounds. But No. 17 Maryland needed some key last-minute free throws from Shay Doron and Anesia Smith to hold off a late UMass run and escape with a 67-63 victory in the first round of the Terrapin Classic at Comcast Center. Maryland (9-1) ended UMass' six-game winning streak, stretching its run to seven.

WASHINGTON -- When Laura Harper finished practice Monday with the WNBA's Sacramento Monarchs, Crystal Langhorne dropped by Verizon Center to pick her up, and the two former Maryland frontcourt mates hit the town. And when the Washington Mystics go west in a couple of weeks, Harper expects to meet Langhorne at the airport, if need be, and they'll take in the sights of Northern California together. But when the Mystics and Monarchs met here Wednesday night - the first time the pair had faced each other professionally - friendship went right out the window.

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- In the week leading up to the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, Maryland women's basketball coach Brenda Frese had emphasized the necessity of better defense. Her team responded last night. The No. 25 Terps played aggressive defense and prevented Clemson from getting into any kind of a rhythm as they registered a 66-55 victory in the first round of the ACC tournament at the Greensboro Coliseum. The sixth-seeded Terps (20-8), who reached the 20-win total for the first time in 12 years, advanced to a quarterfinal tonight at 8 against third-seeded North Carolina State (21-6)

SPOKANE, Wash.-- --Flourishing with offense and sinking with defense, the Maryland Terps came and the Maryland Terps went. One of their better performances of a promising season came when they needed it most. Despite their efforts, the best player the program has ever known went into the locker room at night's end to pack away her career, to pack away her team's national championship hopes. In a game that just as easily could have been played next week in Tampa, Fla., site of this year's Final Four, the top-seeded Terps were ousted from this year's NCAA tournament, 98-87, by Stanford, a No. 2 seed that is as capable as anyone of hoisting a trophy next week.

SPOKANE, Wash. -- From the start of preseason in October, it was clear that the Maryland women's basketball team had learned lessons from its disastrous second-round loss to Mississippi in last year's NCAA tournament. The Terps valued the ball more, their execution was crisper and they remembered to get the ball inside to All-America second-team center Crystal Langhorne. In the end, however, their deepest flaw from the 2006-07 season, occasionally porous perimeter defense, doomed them in Monday's regional final.
