Katie Rutan, a 5-foot-8 shooting guard from Xavier, is transferring to Maryland, Terps coach Brenda Frese announced Thursday. Rutan played two seasons at Xavier, shooting nearly 40 percent from beyond the 3-point line. "Katie has a chance to bring something to our team that will fill a need — a pure shooter," Frese said. "She's the kind of player who loves to be in the gym getting shots up and always thinks she's going to make her next one. " She averaged nearly 8.0 points per game as a Musketeer and was an Atlantic-10 All-Rookie selection as a freshman.

A day after Maryland committed to a gradual launch of its health exchange, state officials are still working out some key details — including where the opening day sign-up will be held — but experts say it could be a way to avoid a repeat of last year's botched rollout.  Several health experts said the approach that limits enrollment in the first few days could allow Maryland to "kick the tires" on its new website. "It's a controlled way to open enrollment," said Karen Pollitz, senior fellow at the Kaiser Family Foundation.

There were many reasons Thursday night should have marked the end of the Maryland women's basketball team's program-record 42-game home winning streak. Maryland coach Brenda Frese's squad is young, turnover-prone and competing without its top player at full strength. That Minnesota was the foe visiting Comcast Center as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge only thickened the plot. Before Frese became an NCAA title-winning coach at Maryland, she had a one-year stay with the Golden Gophers, whom she directed to the second round of the NCAA tournament in 2002.

In 2012, she was a member of the ACC's All-Freshman team.

For many women's lacrosse teams, losing their leading scorer heading toward postseason play would be devastating. For No. 1 Maryland, playing without injured All-American Karri Ellen Johnson has altered the Terrapins' style a bit, but hasn't changed the results. Johnson suffered a concussion in the Towson game on March 29. Although she finished that game, she has been sidelined ever since. Still, the defending national champions have won four games without her, running their season record to 15-0 and their winning streak to 37 games.

Beth Glaros believes she's been a Terp all her life. The only starting senior on the Maryland women's lacrosse team, Glaros followed her parents, who met at Maryland, to College Park and also has two brothers and several members of her extended family who went there. She grew up with a red wardrobe, but when the high-scoring midfielder from Wilde Lake began considering college lacrosse programs, she looked around before settling on Maryland.  "During the recruiting process, I took all my visits and went to a lot of places because I wasn't sure where I wanted to go," said Glaros, "but Maryland was always in the back of my mind.

COLLEGE PARK -- When the calendar changes to May, the attitude changes for the Maryland women's lacrosse team. For a Terrapins team perpetually in the mix for a national championship, the start of the NCAA tournament means that it's time to get serious. "It's time to get business done," Terps midfielder Taylor Cummings said. "We come out here, we have a guaranteed 60 minutes, and that's all we think about. If we win, we survive. If we lose, we go home. I don't think we're ready to go home yet. " Top-ranked Maryland made that abundantly clear in its tournament opener Sunday, as Cummings (McDonogh)

Maryland women's basketball coach Brenda Frese is entering her ninth season in College Park, and it might be the most challenging season of her stellar career. The No. 21 Terps will open their season Saturday night against Monmouth with a team so young that it does not include a single senior and a coach who has just been given the ultimate perspective check. Frese and her husband, Mark Thomas, learned just weeks ago that one of their 2-year old twins, Tyler, has leukemia. Tyler has responded well to treatment and the outlook is positive, but Frese suddenly has a great deal more on her mind than she did when the Terps were headed to their first NCAA title in 2006.
