The attention that comes with five-star status has a way of changing some basketball recruits. Egos get inflated and focus occasionally shifts from team success to individual glory. Malina Howard is not one of those cautionary tales. The Maryland-bound post player - ESPN.com's top-ranked center in the 2012 class - finished a senior season that saw her earn just about every individual award imaginable. But the No. 1 highlight of Howard's final high school campaign was leading Twinsburg High to its second-straight Ohio Division I title.

WASHINGTON - -Coach Brenda Frese had talked in the days leading up to Maryland's basketball game against American about how her players needed to show more fortitude on the road. The Terrapins responded with plenty on Sunday. Maryland got double doubles from Lynetta Kizer and Tianna Hawkins and out-rebounded the Eagles by a margin of more than 2-to-1 in a 75-64 triumph at Bender Arena. The Terrapins (9-2) won their first road game this season, thanks to that duo's rugged inside play as well as efficient game management from freshman point guard Dara Taylor, who had 11 assists against four turnovers.

The Maryland women's basketball team was forced to come back twice from double-digit deficits Sunday in its NCAA tournament Sweet 16 game against defending national champion Texas A&M at PNC Arena. The first comeback, after being down 18 points with 6:40 left in the first half, fell a little short, when a two-handed halfcourt heave by freshman guard Brene Moseley hit the backboard and then bounced off the front rim. It left the second-seeded Terps trailing the third-seeded Aggies by three points.

Freshman Tianna Hawkins had 17 points and 11 rebounds, and Maryland beat Howard, 79-51, despite playing the second half without leading scorer and rebounder Lynetta Kizer , who left with a sprained left ankle. Kizer was injured with 1:21 left in the first half. The 6-foot-4 sophomore fell to the floor near the foul line and groaned in agony before being helped from the court. Kizer, who came in averaging 16.4 points and 8.2 rebounds, returned to the bench in the second half with the aid of a crutch and with her foot in a boot.

RICHMOND, Va. - Kristi Toliver scored 21 points yesterday to lead five Terps in double figures as No. 14 Maryland overcame a five-point halftime deficit to beat Richmond, 83-65. Demauria Liles (12 points, 11 rebounds) and Lynetta Kizer (12 points, 10 rebounds) each had double doubles to help the Terps control the boards and shut down the Spiders in the second half. "We made some adjustments in the locker room [at halftime] to our defense," Maryland coach Brenda Frese said. "I think the execution by our team was tremendous in the second half.

Apparently, the world's most powerful man doesn't think much of the Maryland women's basketball team's chances of enjoying March Madness past Monday. In his NCAA tournament bracket breakdown on ESPN, President Barack Obama predicted No. 7-seeded Louisville would take care of Michigan State -- which it did Saturday afternoon -- then upset the second-seeded Terps at Comcast Center on Monday night. If it's any consolation to the team -- and you'd have to think it isn't, really -- the former hoopster has the Cardinals winning once more before falling to top-seeded Notre Dame in the Elite Eight.

COLLEGE PARK - Sometimes one good run is all it takes. That was the theme last night as No. 11 Maryland bounced back from a poor start to run its home winning streak to 23 games with a 90-76 victory over James Madison before an announced 6,169 at Comcast Center. Preseason All-American and Harrisonburg, Va., native Kristi Toliver led the Terps on a 14-0 run in the middle of the second half to put the game away after the teams traded leads multiple times during the first 30 minutes. Toliver finished with 27 points on 8-for-19 shooting, and all five Maryland starters finished in double figures, accounting for 86 of the team's 90 points.

ATLANTA - Lynetta Kizer can do so many things on the basketball court for the ninth-ranked Maryland women. In the first five minutes of the Terrapins' 87-79 victory at Georgia Tech last night, for instance, the 6-foot-4 freshman center scored off an offensive rebound, then spun past a defender for a layup, and later caught a pass while cutting to the basket and laid the ball in without breaking stride. She also blocked a shot and stole a pass. But there's one thing Kizer really prides herself on doing for the Terps.

For at least a few minutes Sunday afternoon, Louisville coach Jeff Walz sat back leisurely on a dais inside Comcast Center and offered the kind of made-for-TV pleasantries and by-the-book coach-speak that suggested maybe, just maybe, there really was nothing too special about Monday's second-round NCAA tournament matchup with No. 2 Maryland. So much for that. With two answers to questions spaced 10 minutes apart, the tantalizing mentor-versus-mentee narrative that had colored their first meeting three years ago — a 77-60 Cardinals win in the Elite Eight — was at the fore once more.

There were a handful of questions on Lynetta Kizer's mind as her Maryland team bused over from its breakfast at the Marriott Inn & Conference Center to Comcast Center on Saturday morning, arriving for the start of another NCAA tournament not long after dawn. Among them: What time is it? What should I expect from 15th-seeded Navy? How do I make an 11:15 a.m. tip-off feel like it's 7 p.m.? Soon after the morning's first whistle, another arose: What are we doing? The second-seeded Terps' wake-up call came soon enough, but not until early struggles had blighted an opening-round 59-44 win over the Midshipmen.

Brenda Frese's 4-year-old son, Tyler, squirmed in his mother's lap Monday as they waited for word on where Maryland's women's basketball team would be seeded and whom the Terps would play in the first round of the NCAA tournament. If Tyler was impatient, so was Frese. The coach and her players have been eager all season to get back to the tournament and eclipse the memory of last season's second-round loss to Georgetown on Maryland's home court. After waiting for most of the televised selection show, the Terps (28-4)

As the final minutes wound down in sixth-ranked Maryland's 73-58 victory over Wake Forest in Saturday's Atlantic Coast Conference women's basketball tournament semifinals, Lynetta Kizer implored Terrapins supporters at Greensboro Coliseum to rise and join her in celebrating the moment. The senior center certainly was soaking in third-seeded Maryland's 13th trip to the ACC title game, and her performance contributed considerably to her team's fifth straight win and 12th in a row over the Demon Deacons.

Named ACC player of the year on Thursday and tournament MVP three days later, Thomas scored 16 of her career-high 29 points in the second half, including both ends of one-and-one foul shots with 23 seconds to play that kept third-seeded Maryland in front by four.

The eighth-ranked Maryland women's basketball team recovered from a deflating start Sunday against No. 5 Duke to complete a stirring comeback in the final minute for a 63-61 victory that was the Terps ' most satisfying win this season. An announced Comcast Center crowd of 15,150, the eighth-largest in both Atlantic Coast Conference and school history, rose for the closing moments, when Blue Devils sophomore forward Haley Peters had the ball at the left corner, her team trailing by two. Peters released a 3-point attempt, but Alyssa Thomas swooped in to block the shot at the buzzer, and Maryland celebrated its fifth win in six games and its first over a Top 10 team.
