COLLEGE PARK - As far as memories go, there wasn't much worth remembering the last time Maryland was here, fending off the bright lights of ESPN television cameras as it fought desperately to keep its season going past the NCAA tournament's first weekend. The Terps lost to their Big East visitor (Georgetown), lost a starter to a devastating injury (Diandra Tchatchouang), and lost whatever hopes they had of reestablishing themselves among the NCAA's elite. But lurking under the blanketing disappointment was a glimmer of hope from a freshman whose shooting stroke was always an asset, even if her knees were sometimes a trouble.

Maryland's attempt to lure highly-touted recruiter Kenny Johnson back to his alma mater has proven to be unsuccessful. A source in College Park confirmed late Monday that Johnson, a 1999 Maryland graduate, had taken an offer to join Rick Pitino's staff at Louisville. Johnson's ties to Prince George's County-based AAU powerhouse Team Takeover was his entree into the college ranks at Towson three years ago. Johnson then made the meteoric leap to Indiana, where he recruited a number of five-star talents, including Big Ten freshman of the year Noah Vonleh.

When Angel McCoughtry left Louisville in 2009 after a magical Final Four run with the women's basketball team, the Baltimore native was one of the college game's most dominant players. She was a three-time All-American, Big East player of the year (2007) and defensive player of the year (2009), as well as the school's all-time leading scorer and rebounder. But she has become so much more. When McCoughtry returns to the Louisville campus this week, it will be as one of the rising stars in the WNBA, a stalwart on the U.S. women's team and a young woman of uncommon character.

It takes some guts to pick Duke to win the NCAA tournament around these parts, but if anyone has the local clout to get away with it, it's probably Orioles catcher Matt Wieters. Wieters picked Duke on his NCAA bracket as part of a contest the Orioles are holding for fans . Basically, Dan Duquette, J.J. Hardy, Jim Johnson Brian Roberts and Wieters made their picks, and fans can win tickets or autographed memorabilia by backing the most accurate bracket. Because I know you're curious, Johnson and Roberts predict Kansas will cut down the nets in Atlanta, while Hardy and Duquette are rolling with No. 1 overall seed Louisville.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Among the many accomplishments in the decorated career of Maryland women's basketball player Alyssa Thomas, the Final Four had been elusive for the school's career scoring leader until Tuesday night. Only hours after being named first-team All-American for a second time, the senior forward scored a team-high 22 points with a game-high 13 rebounds and made a critical foul shot in the closing seconds to help the No. 4 seed in the Louisville Region secure a 76-73 victory over No. 3 seed Louisville in the NCAA tournament's round of eight in front of an announced 14,002 at KFC Yum Center.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - In 2005-06, when the Maryland women's basketball team won the national championship, coach Brenda Frese's top assistant was Jeff Walz, who proved an invaluable resource on the bench, in the locker room and on the recruiting trail. The two routinely discussed strategy, and in those sessions, Frese foresaw a bright future for her coaching disciple wherever his career led him. Two seasons after helping the Terps to their first and only NCAA title, Walz moved on to become head coach at Louisville and in that time has catapulted the Cardinals onto the national stage with two appearances in the championship game.

The state of Maryland has not been kind to Howard Schnellenberger over the past two decades.In 1974, he was dismissed as coach of the Baltimore Colts for defying owner Bob Irsay's orders to change quarterbacks. In 1982, his Miami Hurricanes lost to Maryland in College Park. And, in 1988, his Louisville Cardinals were beaten by the Terps at Byrd Stadium.But yesterday, Schnellenberger and Louisville survived a first-half scare from the Naval Academy and rolled to a 35-14 victory before 28,156 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis.

In response to The Sun editorial claiming that "Benghazi deserves a real review," (May 10), all I can say is, no, it does not! What we need to do is stop the political charade concerning this issue. The Accountability Review Board asked and answered all the questions necessary to get beyond this tragic case of typical bureaucratic bumbling and stumbling last year. Political wedge issue withstanding, right, Sen. Mitch McConnell, Rep. John Boehner? Disgusting, both of you! Col. Joseph C. Kopacz, U.S. Army (ret.)
