Donald Schuerholz's elder brother, Gilbert, was an All-American soccer goaltender. His nephew is Atlanta Braves President John Schuerholz.

Unlike Mark Turgeon's first three years at Maryland, when a lack of early-season road experience and not many tough non-league games left his men's basketball team a little ill-prepared for what it would face in the ACC, the Terps should be more battle-tested when they start play in the Big Ten. Unlike Maryland's final season in the ACC, most of the Big Ten's marquee programs will be coming to College Park. The 2014-15 schedule, which was unveiled Thursday night on the Big Ten Network, includes a previously announced first-round matchup against Arizona State in the CBE Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City on Nov. 24 as well as a home game against longtime rival Virginia on Dec. 3 in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

Maryland committed secondary NCAA rules violations by allowing Joe Harrington to prepare scouting reports on men's basketball opponents a few seasons ago, but the school self-reported the matter and was not penalized, according to interviews with school officials. The case covered portions of the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons — a period in which Harrington held an administrative post with the team but was not one of Maryland's three assistant coaches. Therefore, he was not permitted — at least initially — to be involved in scouting opponents by compiling video clips or performing related activities.

Thank you, Lady Terps , for bringing me back to the game. I've been gone a long time. Eighteen years, in fact, and I never thought I'd be back. I let my last jump-shot fly off my fingertips back in 1996. And I haven't touched a basketball since. I don't recall whether that final shot swished, bricked, toilet-bowled or something in between. I don't recall whether I managed to block a few shots (likely, given my monkey arms), how many times coach bellowed at me to box out (many, I am certain)

Charlotte, N.C. -- For a Maryland basketball team looking to find its collective confidence, yesterday's game against the Charlotte 49ers at Charlotte Bobcats Arena was more than just a site survey for this season's Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. When the Terrapins return here in March, they will come back with positive vibes, senior forward James Gist and sophomore guard Greivis Vasquez in particular.

Former Terps women's basketball players Marissa Coleman and Kim Rodgers sat quietly at a table in Looney's Bar and Pub on Route 1 in College Park as Sunday's Final Four game came to an end. Maryland lost, 87-61, to undefeated Notre Dame at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville Sunday, ending an inspired run to the national semifinal. The Fighting Irish (37-0) dominated the Terps (28-7) and led by 17 at halftime, en route to their third championship appearance in four years. It was a sad ending for the fans - those in Maryland and others who watched in Tennessee.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. How surprising is it that the Maryland basketball team found its way onto ESPN.com's latest NCAA bracket, and what do the Terps need to do to stay there? Don Markus: Truthfully, I had to check the date of Joe Lunardi's latest post -- twice. It was hard to imaging that Mark Turgeon's team had done anything to deserve even the 12th seed that it was given.

Mark Turgeon sees most of the same faces at practice these days as he did in his first two seasons at Maryland, yet in some ways he is coaching a completely different team. Not only has the talent improved dramatically, but so has the chemistry. The first season when he inherited a fairly dysfunctional group from Gary Williams - made more difficult by the fact that his best player, Terrell Stoglin, was the toughest to coach  - is becoming a distant memory. Even last season, after Stoglin left the program and the Terps improved from 17-15 to 25-13, it wasn't easy trying to mesh four freshmen and two transfers with the three players remaining who had been recruited by Williams (sophomore Nick Faust, junior guard Pe'Shon Howard and senior James Padgett)

Will the Maryland basketball team show improvement from last season during its upcoming trip to the Bahamas? That's what third-year coach Mark Turgeon is hoping for during a three-game, four-day exhibition tour against local competition that begins Tuesday night in Nassau. In an interview last week, Turgeon said that the extra summer practice time allowed under NCAA rules for teams going on trips out of the country has turned the Terps into a more mature group. "To me, it's more about the practices and the preparation, which the guys have done a great job with," Turgeon said.

The Baltimore sports scene is blessed with a bunch of talented bloggers who bring their unique perspective to the conversation. Each week, I hope to chat with one of them in a regular feature called Blogger on Blogger. This week, I exchanged emails with Dave Tucker, who blogs about the Terps for Testudo Times . MV: Where do you expect Alex Len to go in the NBA draft? What do you expect from him as a pro? DT: I expect Len to get drafted somewhere in the top 10, maybe in the top 5. Alex has a lot going for him from an NBA perspective.

COLLEGE PARK -- The five players Maryland coach Mark Turgeon puts on the floor to open games haven't always overwhelmed opponents this season. Rather, it's been the reinforcements - the steady stream of Terps parading to the scorer's table to check in when the starters falter. Turgeon liberally used his bench - one of Maryland's deepest in years - in an 81-63, New Year's Day victory over IUPUI to wrap up the Terps' nonconference schedule. It was Maryland's 12th straight victory - the team's longest win streak since 2002.

Five questions about the Terps Several key questions linger for the Maryland basketball team heading into next season: Who will be back? John Gilchrist almost definitely will not, as he'll likely declare early for the NBA draft, but aside from him and the graduation of unheralded seniors Mike Grinnon and Darien Henry, the Terps' roster will be similar. Nik Caner-Medley, Mike Jones and Ekene Ibekwe had been rumored to be going elsewhere, but all three said in the past couple weeks that they'll definitely be back.

Steamrolling into ACC play on a six-game winning streak, the ninth-ranked Maryland women's basketball team's starting lineup has grown daily, integrating two freshmen into the mix alongside a trio of seasoned veterans ever since Laurin Mincy tore her right ACL on Nov. 28 at Nebraska.  The new unit, which slotted in first-years Chloe Pavlech and Tierney Pfirman alongside Alicia DeVaughn, Alyssa Thomas and Tianna Hawkin, faced a near-impossible task...

The 11th-ranked Maryland women's basketball team will be without starting guard Laurin Mincy for the rest of the season after the junior tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee during Wednesday night's 90-71 victory over No. 21 Nebraska in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge in Lincoln. After scoring a season-high 16points and going 4-for-4 from 3-point range, Mincy landed awkwardly and left with about 15 minutes to play. She did not return, though she was able to walk as well as pedal on an exercise bike during the game.
