Maryland narrowly escaped with a 24-17 win Saturday over South Florida , a team that was just 2-10 last season and that struggled with a lowly FCS program (Western Carolina) the week before. Nevertheless, the Terps begin this week as a three-point favorite over West Virginia, according to ESPN.com. West Virginia travels to face Maryland on Saturday in College Park, a game that will provide the biggest indicator to this point of just how good the Terps can be. The Mountaineers beat Towson 54-0 on Saturday and hung with No. 3 Alabama in Week 1 before falling 33-23.

It was something a young tournament golfer may never forget.Carroll County's Michael Wah, 22, had a horrendous start on his attempt to qualify for the Maryland State Amateur Championship at Norbeck Country Club.He possibly could have lived with a bogey, or even a double bogey, but with a triple, all his nerve and composure were called upon to move on to the second hole.The humbling start caused Wah to miss the qualifying cut by a stroke. Last year, the Union Bridge resident had made it through qualifying for the National Amateur in Ohio.

Open gambling tables and slot machines were easy to find this week at the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino, now that the standing-room crowds once common to the high tourist season at the world's most famous boardwalk have found spots closer to home to place their bets. The Trump Plaza's 30-year run is coming to an end, making it one of four casinos here that since January have closed or announced they will close by the fall. That's four of 12 casinos, taking with them nearly 9,000 jobs - roughly a quarter of the city's casino employment.

Welcome to a second season of Morning Shootaround. We will follow the Terps throughout the 2013-14 season, but this year in this space we will provide a look ahead rather than looking back. We will try to analyze Maryland's strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of its upcoming opponent. We also hope to provide quotes and anecdotes from practices to give some idea of what Mark Turgeon and his team are doing. Here are a few things to look for as the Terps host Abilene Christian on Wednesday night in the home opener at Comcast Center.

Assistant coach Scott Spinelli ran the practice portion that wasn't open to the public, then let fellow assistants Bino Ranson and Dalonte Hill coach after they split up the teams. For those planning their ACC fantasy league teams, Jake Layman continues to show signs that he could take a major step from his freshman year. The 6-foot-8 forward led the Red Team to a 38-36 win in the 20-minute scrimmage with 20 points.
