COLLEGE PARK -- The atmosphere last night at Cole Field House was more ECC than ACC, and so was the execution. It was biodegradable basketball: lots of breakdowns. Hopefully, it won't take long for the tapes to disintegrate.Maryland's 83-69 victory over Rider College was only a trifle more important than the fact that the Terrapins came out of the game unscathed. About the most anxious moments came when Walt Williams went hard to the floor three times in the second half.Williams shook off those spills to lead Maryland (7-1)

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.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- This game has loomed in the back of their minds all season. Before, the players and coaches on the University of Maryland basketball team knew that no matter what happened on a given day or night, there would be other games to play.Today, no matter what happens here against Virginia at University Hall, there won't be another game until next season. Win or lose, the Terrapins will close out the 1990-91 season this afternoon. No Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. No postseason.

COLLEGE PARK - College basketball coaches readily admit that few of their philosophies and strategies are original. In the old days, coaches would attend clinics to pick up ideas. In an age of satellite dishes and the Internet, just plain thievery is the most sincere form of flattery. "I always stole stuff off teams that won a national championship," Maryland coach Gary Williams said recently. Having coached the Terrapins to their first NCAA championship last season, Williams was not surprised to get more requests than ever for diagrams and tapes of an offense he has run his entire college coaching career.

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.

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.

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.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- There are no more games or practices for the Maryland basketball team, no more midnight flights or early morning shootarounds, no more wild swings of emotion that accompany a 14-15 team through a season that ended here Friday afternoon.But, more significantly, there will be no more shackles, either. After their 94-87 loss to top-ranked Duke in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, the Terrapins are without NCAA sanctions for the first time in two years.

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.
