CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- During Maryland's first two visits to University Hall since Gary Williams became head coach, the Terrapins seemed to get all the right bounces, not to mention their share of big plays, while beating Virginia in close games.It appeared for nearly 37 minutes last night that Maryland's success against the Cavaliers would go uninterrupted. But after twice building 10-point leads in the second half, the Terps ran out of luck, bodies and eventually steam in losing to Virginia, 82-75, before a raucous, sellout crowd of 8,864.

Nearly two months ago at the annual preseason gathering of Atlantic Coast Conference coaches and select players in Greensboro, N.C., Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski pondered a question about the loss of Shane Battier, and how that would affect Duke's chemistry as the Blue Devils defended their third national title. "The biggest question I have about this team is how are we going to be led?" Krzyzewski said. "I've never had a leader like Shane [now in the NBA with the Memphis Grizzlies]. Anybody that tries to be as good a leader as Shane is going to fail."

RICHMOND, Va. -- This is the kind of season it might be for Maryland. Twelve-point deficits followed by nine point-leads followed by 15-point losses. From the brink of victory to the blowout of defeat.Last night's 100-85 loss to Boston College in the ACC-Big East Challenge, played out before what was left of a small crowd at the Richmond Coliseum, showed how inconsistent and offensively impotent the Terrapins can be.Despite two separate runs of 13 straight points, the second of which gave Maryland (2-2)

COLLEGE PARK -- How's this for a script: Maryland is down 10 points to Wake Forest early in the second half, four when Walt Williams makes his first appearance after missing six weeks with a broken leg. Coming in to a prolonged standing ovation, the junior point guard hits his first shot, an over-the-head layup to tie the score.Not bad, but there's more: Williams makes two more acrobatic shots, including a crucial three-pointer, bringing down the house and the Deamon Deacons. As Cole Field House rocks, the Terrapins roll to an 86-78 victory, cooling off the Atlantic Coast Conference's hottest team and clinching a winning record.

College basketball, don't you love it? Here's Maryland coach Gary Williams, defending two recruits who could have been Ivy Leaguers. That means they're smart. And, in the view of some disgruntled Terps fans, it means Williams is dumb.His latest recruiting class is not as good as it could have been, and probably not as good as it should have been. But not long ago, Maryland was a symbol of all that was wrong with college sports. You want to blast Williams for recruiting good kids, then be our hypocritical guest.

ANAHEIM, Calif -- Drew Nicholas thought back to the days of November, the days when Maryland received its first dose of reality at the season-opening Maui Invitational, the days when the Terrapins were living on preseason hype and heavy expectations. The ensuing four-month marathon has broken down the Terps, built them up, broken them down again and ultimately brought them to the doorstep of uncharted territory. It has led Maryland 3,000 miles from home to face an opponent that resides in its backyard.

ATLANTA -- Gary Williams has craved this chance for a year. So have Juan Dixon, Lonny Baxter, Steve Blake and the rest of the Maryland Terrapins. A year after making their maiden voyage to the Final Four, a year after blowing a 22-point lead and losing to Duke, their Atlantic Coast Conference archrival and the eventual national champion, the Terps have returned to the college game's climactic weekend as a wiser, more seasoned, more dangerous team with...

ATLANTA - Maryland freshman point guard Andre Collins denied rumors that he was considering asking for a release from his scholarship to transfer to another school. Collins, who has played sparingly behind Steve Blake and Drew Nicholas this season, could find himself stuck in a logjam at point guard with the arrival of heralded recruit John Gilchrist next fall. Blake will be a senior. "I'm not leaving. I'm not wanting to leave. I'm going to continue to compete and play," said Collins, who has averaged 2.2 points and 3.8 minutes this season.

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.
