CLEMSON, S.C. -- With just under two minutes left to play and his team on the cusp of winning its third straight game, Maryland freshman guard Greivis Vasquez couldn't resist antagonizing the Clemson students just a wee bit. He cupped his hand to his ear while they taunted him, as if to say, "I can't hear you," and flashed a cocky smile - a gesture he earned by contributing to half of his team's field goals in the Terps' 82-66 win over Clemson yesterday at...

CLEMSON, S.C. - Maryland had its recent spate of close losses prolonged Sunday at Littlejohn Coliseum. With chances to win at the end of regulation, the Terps went into one overtime, then another, before losing to Clemson, 77-73, as their season-long agony continued. The defeat was the sixth in nine games this season decided by four points or fewer, and the third in a stretch of four games that followed two-point defeats to both Duke and Syracuse. Despite taking the lead with the first basket in each overtime, and leading 71-70 on a jumper by sophomore guard Seth Allen with 1:32 left in the second overtime, the Terps couldn't stop the Tigers down the stretch.

"The ball wasn't going in, but I knew we also weren't playing hard enough."Final score: 79-71."We cut it to six and we had a chance to win, but they hit some big shots and made their free throws," said Maryland coach Gary Williams, recalling his team's ill-fated comeback and its disappointing eight-point defeat.

Devin Gray spent the first 3 1/2 years of his basketball career at Clemson going straight at people, using his quickness, his power and his determination to become one of the best players in the Atlantic Coast Conference.Now, Gray spends much of his time trying to stay away from the place -- Littlejohn Coliseum -- where he built his reputation and away from the spotlight that would have been mostly his as Clemson's star attraction this season. What had the makings of an incredible comeback story took a disappointing, and potentially disastrous, turn last month.

CLEMSON (13-10) at MARYLAND (21-5)Site: Cole Field House, College ParkTime: 1:30 p.m.TV/Radio: Chs. 54, 7/WBAL (1090 AM)Outlook: The seventh-ranked Terrapins (10-3 ACC) will try to complete an unbeaten season at home, their first since the 1979-80 season. Though the Tigers (3-10) played them tough at Littlejohn Coliseum -- Maryland escaped, 56-51 -- they should have fewer problems today. Sophomore Joe Smith (19.6 ppg, 10.2 rpg, 3 bpg) was 8-for-8 in the first meeting, but Clemson's zone prevented him from getting the ball down the stretch.
