COLLEGE PARK - Dez Wells and LeVelle Moton are not blood relatives, though the Maryland junior guard calls the North Carolina Central basketball coach "my uncle. " They were planning to have dinner Monday night along with Wells' mother, Pam, and Moton's wife, Bridget, after Moton's team practiced at Comcast Center in preparation for Tuesday's game against the Terps. “After we have dinner, then we can become competitive monsters until after the game,” Moton said Monday. In retrospect, Moton said he regrets scheduling the Terps.

Unlike Mark Turgeon's first three years at Maryland, when a lack of early-season road experience and not many tough non-league games left his men's basketball team a little ill-prepared for what it would face in the ACC, the Terps should be more battle-tested when they start play in the Big Ten. Unlike Maryland's final season in the ACC, most of the Big Ten's marquee programs will be coming to College Park. The 2014-15 schedule, which was unveiled Thursday night on the Big Ten Network, includes a previously announced first-round matchup against Arizona State in the CBE Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City on Nov. 24 as well as a home game against longtime rival Virginia on Dec. 3 in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

When Maryland plays its next game on Tuesday, Terps swingman Dez Wells will be competing against a mentor and family friend in North Carolina Central coach Levelle Moton. North Carolina Central is located near where Wells, a junior, grew up in Raleigh. Moton helped Wells during a difficult period when the player was expelled from Xavier following a sexual assault  allegation that a prosecutor said was unproven. "You're talking about an emotional rollercoaster," Moton told me earlier this year about Wells' journey.

  NORFOLK, Va. -  As a native of Boston and longtime Red Sox fan, LeVelle Moton grew up hearing about how his baseball team was cursed. Upon becoming North Carolina Central's coach five years ago, Moton began hearing it again. The Eagles put an end to such talk Saturday, though. N.C. Central guard Jeremy Ingram scored 29 points to lead the top-seeded Eagles past No. 3 Morgan State, 71-62, in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference championship game on Saturday night at Scope Arena . It was N.C. Central's first postseason tournament title in 64 years.

COLLEGE PARK - Following a defensive game plan does wonders for a college basketball team, as Maryland finally figured out in a 70-56 win Tuesday . Much of Mark Turgeon's pregame scouting report centered around stopping high-scoring North Carolina Central guard Jeremy Ingram. Trying to become the latest guard to light up the Terps and lead his team to a nonconference road win, Ingram found himself double-teamed at Comcast Center. Wing Dez Wells got the first crack at Ingram, who came in as the nation's third-leading scorer (24.6 points per game)

It's hard to fathom what it must have been like for Dez Wells to emerge from beneath the weight of public suspicion and step into a sold-out basketball arena again and hear cheers and balls bouncing and bands playing. Those who know the Maryland player's story - the infamous brawl during his freshman year at Xavier, the sexual assault allegation rejected by a prosecutor - understand why Wells seemed overcome as the sophomore transfer was introduced for the Terps ' season-opening game against Kentucky, leaning in and hugging his coach, Mark Turgeon.

Like his coach, Dez Wells has a long basketball memory. His personal defeats remain with him like tiny scars. The super-competitive Maryland junior swingman entered Tuesday's game against North Carolina Central with the nagging memory of Eagles guard Jeremy Ingram scoring 30 or so points on him in a high school tournament in their home state of North Carolina. Four years later, Wells used the recollection as motivation in helping hold Ingram - the nation's third-leading scorer - to 11 points on 4-for-19 shooting in Maryland's 70-56 victory before an announced 9,554 at Comcast Center.
