Sylvester Ford, Lucas' coach at Fairley High School, said last week that Lucas had taken his college boards (ACT) and would qualify under Proposition 48.Lucas couldn't be reached for comment."I think he's a real good shooter for someone almost 6-9," Maryland coach Gary Williams said last night.

In the previous two seasons, with Joe Smith leading the charge, the Terps lost by 10 (100-90)

CLEMSON, S.C. -- When the current basketball season began at the University of Maryland, Gary Williams was excited about his team's new-found flexibility and its new-found depth.The days of using five or six players, as Williams had to do for most of the past two seasons, seemed to be over. The Terrapins coach was going to be able to go three, four, maybe even five players into his bench."We can do some things that we haven't been able to do in the past," Williams said in preseason practice.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- West Virginia showed its hospitality last night, giving the University of Maryland basketball team a chance to climb back from a seven-point second half deficit into a tie game with a little less than seven minutes remaining.But the Terrapins showed their inexperience down the stretch, as well as little interior defense on Pervires Greene and Ricky Robinson throughout the evening. As a result, they wound up getting blown out by the Mountaineers, 86-72, before a crowd of 10,516 at the WVU Coliseum.

SAN ANTONIO -- Joe Smith took his quiet candidacy for National Player of the Year to a rather large constituency yesterday: a television audience that covered half the country, not to mention a number of voters who don't get to watch the 6-foot-10 sophomore All-American regularly.Smith picked up more than a few votes, but more importantly picked up his erratic Maryland teammates for the umpteenth time. The seventh-ranked Terrapins needed each of his 26 points, 14 rebounds, four blocks and three steals to escape with a sloppy, 74-72 victory over Cincinnati in the opening game of the Seven-Up Shootout doubleheader at the Alamodome.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Maryland Terrapins had talked about putting together a six-game winning streak in the NCAA tournament. They had dreamed about going to the Final Four. And All-American Joe Smith had hoped to cap off his own magical season -- and perhaps his college career -- with a national championship in Seattle.The winning streak is over.The dream of the school's first Final Four is dashed.And the season, if not Smith's college career as well, has ended.It all came to a screeching halt last night at the Oakland Coliseum in a 99-89 defeat to Connecticut in the NCAA West Regional semifinals.
