The Maryland basketball program, which hasn't had the best of spring signing periods, may get a boost this weekend as a prominent recruit considers joining the Terps next fall.Lawrence Moten, a 6-foot-5 1/2 forward from Washington's Archbishop Carroll High, told the Journal newspapers that he will decide over the weekend whether to sign with Maryland or with Syracuse.Moten, who averaged 28 points and 10 rebounds per game in his senior year at Carroll, enrolled last year at a prep school in New Hampshire to bring his grades and SAT scores to required minimums.

AUSTIN, Texas -- The NCAA men's basketball tournament bracket, a tenuously constructed thing to begin with, was shaking hard yesterday.Already missing two fourth seeds and three thirds, the bracket was about to lose a second seed and -- rattle, rattle -- a No. 1. Office pools throughout the land were about to collapse into debris piles of tiny black lines.At the Erwin Center on the University of Texas campus, 15,375 watching a thriller between Arkansas and Syracuse were assured that the basketball sky had begun to fall: "A final score from the West Region," the public-address announcer said, pausing poignantly during a timeout, "Missouri 74, UCLA 65!"

LANDOVER -- With Connecticut dominating the Big East Conference last season, the Georgetown-Syracuse meetings lacked some of the drama and impact of years past.But with both teams chasing the Huskies for the regular-season title this season, their old feud flared anew last night at USAir Arena, and when it was over Syracuse remained the closest pursuer by edging the Hoyas, 76-75, before 16,352."This was a good old-fashioned Georgetown-Syracuse game," said Orange coach Jim Boeheim, whose team dropped from sixth to 10th in the Associated Press poll after losing to Connecticut last week.

PHILADELPHIA -- Thin as whips. Sharp and quick as whips, too. They leave scars, Kerry Kittles and Lawrence Moten, nasty painful scars.Kittles and Moten are plotting, they must be, plotting as they stand face-to-face, plotting when they're going to twist some poor defender into knots and leave another caught in a pick. It's their way, Kittles and Moten.Kittles, the guard from Villanova, and Moten, the guard from Syracuse, weaving, slipping through holes, popping up at the unlikeliest places, so much alike, so hard to tell apart.

Looking relaxed and refreshed from the college basketball wars, Maryland coach Gary Williams paused from holding court on the NBA draft long enough to say that he likes it here very much and plans to stay for a while.The school announced yesterday that he had signed a new five-year contract that replaces the five-year deal Williams got when he was hired two years ago.Though terms were not disclosed, athletic director Andy Geiger said the new contract is much like the old one, which reportedly paid Williams about $400,000 per year, with incentives and other bonuses, with the key proviso that it rolls over after each season, meaning that it will always have five years to run.The other key difference, according to Geiger, is that the new pact keeps the popular Williams in College Park.

LANDOVER -- After Georgetown beat Seton Hall last week, Hoyas coach John Thompson joked about his team's lack of outside shooting."We haven't talked about outside shooting for 10 years," Thompson said. "Whenever we make an outside shot, we bless ourselves."Thompson wasn't blessing his 22nd-ranked Hoyas after last night's 74-62 loss to No. 20 Syracuse at the Capital Centre. In fact, he was barely speaking to them.As Thompson said afterward, "It was one of those games that it was a wonder we didn't lose by 50. One of those days that we pass and go on. Probably the most courageous act all night was me not saying anything to them after it was over."

COLLEGE PARK -- University of Maryland athletic director Andy Geiger said he plans to hire a full-time recruiting coordinator to act as a liaison between coaches and the school's admissions office.Geiger's decision was precipitated by developments surrounding two basketball recruits who recently were rejected for admission, even though both of the them were admitted elsewhere and are qualified to play under standards set by the National Collegiate Athletic Association."An ideal situation is where there is an officer of the athletic department gathering data and working in liaison with admissions," Geiger said in an interview Wednesday.

LANDOVER -- There was a time when Georgetown-Syracus was one of the biggest matchups in college basketball, when players such as Patrick Ewing, Reggie Williams, Derrick Coleman and Billy Owens provided fire to a fierce rivalry.By the time the final buzzer sounded last night, the teams were close, with Georgetown coming out on top, 64-60. But the battle between these two Big East Conference giants doesn't have the same luster.No. 17 Georgetown (8-1, 1-1) shot just 39 percent from the field.
