Marah Strickland didn't have any idea she was sick. She played two years at St. John's Catholic Prep in Frederick, two years at Towson Catholic, two seasons at Maryland and one season at South Carolina, and it's possible she was symptomatic the entire time. She just didn't know. A little more than two years ago, she finally found out. Doctors diagnosed Strickland with hypothyroidism before the 2011-12 season, and they told her it was something she might have had for a long time.

1 Name game: If Marissa Coleman has another game like Saturday's against Louisville (7 p.m., ESPN), we could be seeing whole youth teams of Marissas in 10 years. 2 March preview: Some of the players in the Powerade Jam Fest (8 p.m., ESPN2) could well be starring in the NCAA tournament this time next year. 3 Bridge and tunnel: Rangers vs. Devils (7 p.m., Versus), it's sort of like Real Housewives of New York (left) vs. Real Housewives of New Jersey, only with skates instead of Jimmy Choos.

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.

Women Hartford, Conn. -- With Marissa Coleman to her left and Laura Harper to her right on the Hartford Civic Center podium, Maryland point guard Kristi Toliver looked confident as she fielded questions about the Terps' second-round NCAA tournament game against Mississippi tonight. Back in the locker room, however, Toliver appeared confused and hurt over being supplanted in the Maryland starting lineup by Sa'de Wiley-Gatewood after 49 straight starts as the Terps (28-5) attempt to repeat as national champions.

[1] Maryland (29-4) vs. [9] Utah (23-9) WHEN: 7 p.m. WHERE: Comcast Center, College Park TV: ESPN2 WINNER FACES: Vanderbilt-Kansas State winner Saturday in Raleigh, N.C. THE GAME: In its 82-53 first-round victory over Dartmouth, Maryland held a 52-34 rebounding edge and scored 20 points off fast breaks. Those two abilities are what make the Terrapins especially dangerous, according to Utah coach Elaine Elliott. "Maryland's transition game is really more like you're not ready to defend that soon, and they're ready to shoot and go at you that soon," she said.

College Park -- Jeff Walz can work the big room, even one as big as Comcast Center. As associate head coach of the Maryland women's basketball team, Walz's bluntly comedic repertoire is on display almost daily, usually to a select audience of players during practice. Maryland women@Boston College Tomorrow, 3 p.m., Comcast SportsNet (3:30 p.m.) Play to remember Maryland associate head coach Jeff Walz has a reputation for X's and O's and thinking ahead. In last year's win over Duke in the national title game, Walz designed the play that led to Kristi Toliver (right)

Maryland's 2006 national championship victory over Atlantic Coast Conference rival Duke was named the best women's basketball game in the past 10 years by Sports Illustrated. The Terps rallied and forced overtime when Kristi Toliver made a 3-pointer over the outstretched hand of 6-foot-7 center Alison Bales . Toliver made two free throws with 35 seconds left in overtime, then got two free throws from fellow freshman Marissa Coleman to cap off the 78-75 victory. Maryland's comeback from 13 points down with less than 15 minutes remaining tied for the second largest in championship game history.

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.
