Wednesday's entry is the fifth in a series taking a look at each of the seven Division I programs in this state according to their order of finish from last season. The Sun's lacrosse preview will be published on Friday, Feb. 7. This is Maryland's turn. Overview: The Terps enjoyed what would be considered a successful regular season in many circles, with 10 wins for the first time since 2007 and the program's first Atlantic Coast Conference title since 2004. But the No. 1 seed fell to No. 4 seed Virginia in the league tournament, and the downward spiral continued until a loss to Cornell in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

The next time college basketball fans see Kentucky, the newly crowned national champions will look a lot different. So will the team the Wildcats will be facing - Maryland. Neither the countdown nor the buildup for their Nov. 9 matchup at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., has yet to begin, but it's interesting to speculate what each team will look like. It's a given that Kentucky will be starting nearly from scratch, as John Calipari's teams seem to do on a now yearly basis.

John Joseph Idzik, 85, who coached the Baltimore Colts during two stints in the 1970s and 1980s after playing for and later coaching the Maryland Terrapins football team, died on Tuesday. Idzik, of Chadds Ford, Pa., owns the fifth-best punt return average in Terps history (12.38) and also played defensive back and halfback after accepting a football scholarship in 1947. Also a third baseman for the Terps' baseball team, he attended Maryland despite receiving a contract offer after high school from the St. Louis Cardinals baseball club.

Coach: Gary Williams, 12th season at Maryland (217-128), 23rd overall (424-256). Affiliation: Atlantic Coast Conference. 1999-2000 record: 25-10 (11-5 in ACC); lost to UCLA in NCAA Midwest second round. Radio: WBAL (1090 AM) Arena: Cole Field House (14,500). Consensus league favorite: Duke. Consensus Maryland prediction: Second. Starters lost: None. Starting lineup: G Steve Blake, G Juan Dixon, F Danny Miller, F Terence Morris, C Lonny Baxter. Outlook: If there ever was a year for the Terps to break through the wall - get past the Sweet 16 for the first time under Williams and even make it to the Final Four - this is it. Maryland, which has won 53 games over the past two seasons, returns all five starters and will bring possibly its best bench ever to bear on the ACC. Morris, Baxter and Dixon give Maryland one of the top trios of talent in the nation, and Blake should be considered one of the country's top point guards before long.

All football eyes will be on College Park tomorrow, when Navy's opening opponent next week, Coach George Welsh's Virginia Cavaliers, battle the Maryland Terrapins.The Terps upended Virginia in their opener last year, 17-6, and the following week the Mids nearly ruined the Cavaliers' bowl season before losing a heart-breaker in the fourth quarter, 17-10.One of the more interesting locker room topics these dayscenters on the debate as to whether opening a season with an opponent who has a game under its belt places a team at a disadvantage.

COLLEGE PARK - Ever since he began to participate years ago in the summer basketball camps run by coach Gary Williams at Cole Field House, John Gilchrist had pictured himself one day running the offense in a Maryland uniform. But Gilchrist never dreamed how the past and the present would converge, putting him in such a unique place and time. Nearly eight months after the Terrapins finally reached the pinnacle by winning the first national championship in school history, and days before the program officially celebrates its debut in the sparkling Comcast Center arena, Maryland's freshman point guard tried to grasp what the future holds for him and his fellow recruits.

The Maryland Terrapins know what they have to do to get on, and stay on, the NCAA tournament selection committee's radar: keep holding serve at Comcast Center and get a few more wins on the road. How many wins the Terps need might depend on how they and the rest of the ACC teams fare away home.

ALCATRAZ ISLAND, Calif. -- In an age when college football coaches hope their players stay out of trouble, Ralph Friedgen brought his Maryland Terrapins to one of history's most notorious prisons Monday afternoon. Visiting Alcatraz, a penitentiary that has been closed since 1963 and is now an official U.S. landmark, is part of the nonfootball itinerary for the Terps as they get ready for Friday night's Emerald Bowl against Oregon State at San Francisco's AT&T Park.

It has been awhile since the Maryland Terrapins football program has had an afternoon like this, so you can forgive Randy Edsall and his players for feeling pretty good about the way they manhandled Florida International on Saturday at Byrd Stadium. The opponent was convenient. The Golden Panthers won just three games last year and may not win that many this season, but that's a detail for another day. The Terps weren't the only team to open against a non-conference creampuff this weekend, just the only one to finish a disappointing 2012 season with a linebacker playing quarterback.

What is it with Maryland and North Carolina when it comes to snowstorms? With a prediction of a major snowfall hitting the region starting Tuesday night and going well into Wednesday, the plans of many hoping to attend Wednesday night's game between the Terps and Tar Heels in College Park might be adjusted. It could mark the second time in four years that the arrival of North Carolina coincided with a blizzard. Snowpocalypse II hit the day of the 2010 game, which went on despite many Maryland fans not being able to get to Comcast Center.

There's a problem with little Tyler tonight, and Mommy is just about beside herself. Tyler just turned 4. He has leukemia — but this has nothing to do with that. Tyler is extroverted and lovey-dovey, a world-class hugger, a chatterbox. And until this very day, he loved the Maryland Terrapins, especially the women's basketball team, unconditionally. He was red, black and yellow, through and through. Attended every game his illness allowed. Wouldn't even think of wearing blue — because blue is Duke.

The final buzzer sounded, Juan Dixon and Lonny Baxter tumbled to the Georgia Dome floor locked in a joyous embrace, and the Maryland Terrapins had completed their historic journey by winning the first men's national basketball championship in school history. The Terps have shown their mettle in so many ways throughout this marvelous season, and the Indiana Hoosiers brought out yet another layer of toughness in Maryland last night. Indiana used tenacious defense and outside shooting to push the Terps to the brink of a stunning upset.

COLLEGE PARK -- The Maryland Terrapins are not accustomed to success this season, so handling a rare bit of dominance proved tricky last night against Wake Forest at Comcast Center. Pulling away to a 12 point lead midway through the second half, and leading by 11 with 5:17 remaining, the Terps made their fans nervous and their coach apoplectic when the Demon Deacons cut their deficit to five before Maryland held on for a 71-64 victory.
