All Gary Williams ever dreamed of being was a high school basketball coach. After graduating from Maryland in 1968, Williams thought his dream had come true when he became the junior varsity and, later, varsity coach at Woodrow Wilson High in Camden, N.J. The dream eventually grew, as did Williams' stature as a coach, over the next four decades. More than two years after he retired from a coaching career highlighted by Maryland's first national title, Williams was nominated Friday for basketball's highest individual honor: induction into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.

On Maryland coach Gary Williams I hear some people calling for his head. I still think that coach Williams is a great college coach. [Williams] will force this current team to play the way he wants them to play and force them into roles that they aren't suited for. It's not too late to fix things. I'd like to see Gary give the reins to the freshmen.

Gary Williams -- the animated coach who helped resurrect Maryland men's basketball and led the team to its first national championship in 2002 -- stunned players and the university community by abruptly retiring Thursday after 22 seasons at his alma mater. The timing of his decision surprised even his close friends. They had known that, at 66 and recently remarried, Williams had accomplished his main goals in the profession and was nearly ready to move to something less taxing. They knew he had grown frustrated at competing with coaches who straddled or violated NCAA guidelines in wooing high-maintenance recruits.

COLLEGE PARK -- As each loss passes, Maryland coach Gary Williams maintains his mathematical rationalization: If there are still enough games left to win, there is still a chance to turn things around. After Tuesday night's 69-65 home loss to Virginia, Williams took it one step further by expanding Maryland's chances to collect wins into the postseason.

It boils down to roughly 10 minutes that might have made the difference in an entire season. Maryland coach Gary Williams has pointed to the final frenzied moments of the Terps' 69-65 loss to Virginia on Feb. 6 at Comcast Center as a pivotal point for a program that has made a remarkable turnaround. Trailing by as many as 15 points in the second half, the relentless Terps cut their deficit to one with 13 seconds remaining, but still fell short.

DURHAM, N.C. -- Less than a minute into the second half last night at Cameron Indoor Stadium, Maryland coach Gary Williams had seen enough. Trailing Duke by 11 points at halftime and by 16 after 56 more seconds had elapsed, Williams called a timeout. For a moment, he stood on the court, behind his team's huddle, trying to come up with something prophetic to say rather than just something profane.

COLLEGE PARK -- There is one thing Maryland coach Gary Williams said he has learned not to discuss with his players, and it's the very topic basketball junkies can't stop yapping about - what it will take to make the NCAA tournament. "I think we're trying to stress, `Let's just play, and see where it takes us,' rather than, `We have to do this to get to this,'" Williams said. "It doesn't make any sense. I never talk about it with the players. You just talk about the next game. I've learned over the years not to do it."

COLLEGE PARK - Perhaps one day Bryant University will arrive here with a realistic chance to defeat or at least rattle Maryland. Yesterday was decidedly not that day. The Bulldogs, in the first year of a four-year transition into Division I, are not so much threatening Atlantic Coast Conference and Big East teams this season as they are sampling life in college basketball's upper echelon. The Bulldogs, losers of eight straight after yesterday's 72-51 defeat, are tourists in a strange, new world.

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- They will be credited as the team that returned Maryland to the NCAA tournament after a two-year hiatus, and remembered for an impressive seven-game winning streak and an improbable comeback to end the regular season tied for third place in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Everyone within the program, though, wanted more, and the Terps had proved they were capable of it until yesterday's unexpected, 62-59 loss to sharpshooting Butler in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
