MINNEAPOLIS - The players, bleary-eyed and a little bitter about the way their ride ended, glanced back at a season they will never forget, and looked ahead to a new era. Barely 12 hours had passed since the Maryland Terrapins' dreams of a national championship crash-landed at the Metrodome, where the Duke Blue Devils had started with such a sleepwalk, before awakening with a fury the Terps could not match. In the wake of Saturday's 95-84 loss to Duke in the national semifinals, which put the Blue Devils in tonight's NCAA championship game against Arizona, the Terps tried to make sense of things.

Two-a-days have ended and yesterday was the final scrimmage for Maryland players to audition for any remaining starting spots. It seemed like a good time to ask coach Ralph Friedgen if he has a sense of where his team is. "I don't," he said. "I really don't. I'm a little concerned where we are. There's moments in every practice when I think we're pretty good. Then there's other moments when I don't think we're very good. ... I'm really encouraging our leadership to come forward and kind of push us through this.

Maryland linebacker Shawn Petty, who started four games at quarterback in 2012, is leaving the program after two seasons, coach Randy Edsall  wrote Tuesday on his Twitter account . Petty played in all 13 games last season and made 24 tackles, including two sacks. But Terps fans are more likely to remember how Petty stepped in as a freshman in 2012 and played quarterback after injuries knocked out the four players ahead of him at the position. The 235-pound Petty, who had played quarterback at Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt , was serviceable as a passer.

Misery," March 17) and Kevin Van Valkenburg ("March sadness," March 17) lament the state of Maryland's basketball but neglect to address the root causes — the lack of class by the basketball team and The Sun's bush league coverage.

Maryland basketball player Dez Wells is filing suit against Xavier, claiming he was wrongfully dismissed by the school after being accused of sexual assault by a student during his freshman year in 2012. Wells was never criminally charged - a prosecutor said there was no basis for action - but was expelled by the university. Now Wells, who transferred to Maryland before last season and immediately became a starter, is legally challenging the procedure that Xavier used to dismiss him. “In July 2012, Wells was falsely accused of sexual assault,” according to a copy of the suit.
