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.

A year ago, the struggling University of Maryland basketball team used a championship at the Chaminade Christmas Classic in Hawaii as a catalyst for a successful season.The Terrapins hope that Saturday's ECAC Holiday Festival championship provides much the same impetus for their Atlantic Coast Conference season.After ringing out the 1990 portion of its schedule with a rousing, 78-69 victory over 12th-ranked South Carolina in the final at Madison Square Garden, Maryland (6-3) opens its ACC schedule Wednesday night at Wake Forest.

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 - 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.

NEW YORK -- Maybe it was the idea of playing in the big city. Maybe it was the chance to be part of a tournament, any tournament. Or maybe it was Walt Williams living up to his reputation, if not his abilities.For whatever reason, the University of Maryland basketball team and its junior point guard starred last night against Rutgers in the opening round of the ECAC Holiday Fest at Madison Square Garden.The result was a fall-from-ahead, come-from-behind 86-81 victory over Rutgers and a 30-point performance by Williams.

DURHAM, N.C. - Jason Williams was headed to Rutgers. He had told the coach, Kevin Bannon, to save a uniform. He had told his friends that he was going to stay home in New Jersey and help bring the state university's basketball program back to national prominence. And then he listened to his mother, Althea, who wanted him to think about playing at Duke. "My mother kind of had to force me to take an unofficial visit," Williams recalled yesterday. There are a lot of teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference that would prefer Williams hadn't been such a dutiful son. Considering what the solidly built, 6-foot-2 sophomore point guard did to Maryland in last month's epic 98-96 overtime victory at Cole Field House, the Terrapins might be at the top that wish list.
