COLLEGE PARK -- For weeks now, Maryland women's basketball coach Chris Weller has been telling anyone who would listen that she's got a pretty good team.And somebody apparently has heard: Witness the Terps' rise up The Associated Press poll rankings from their position at No. 15 to start the season, to last week's 12th slot to the current No. 9 post, their highest ranking in three years.But the leap into the top 10 has come by virtue of some rather gaudy victory margins over less than top-shelf opposition.

The Maryland women's basketball team, which was bypassed Monday night when the NCAA tournament field was selected, will instead play in the National Invitation Tournament, hosting Iona on Friday night at 7 p.m. at Comcast Center. "We have high standards at Maryland and are disappointed to not make the NCAA tournament this year," said coach Brenda Frese, whose Terps are 19-12 overall and finished 5-9 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. "However, I'm proud of this young team for the fight they showed all season.

COLLEGE PARK -- After two weeks of doing a lot of things wrong, the Maryland women's basketball team did enough things right to stun No. 14 Duke, 63-52, last night at Cole Field House.After taking a 29-point loss flush on the chin Saturday at Georgia Tech, Maryland looked to be in for a long night against the Blue Devils, who started the night half a game out of first place in the Atlantic Coast Conference.But the Terps (9-11 overall, 3-7 ACC) put together their best overall effort of the year in ending a five-game losing streak.

The Maryland women's basketball team arrived at the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament with uncertain NCAA tournament prospects. The ninth-seeded Terrapins' 83-77 victory over North Carolina on Thursday at Greensboro Coliseum made their case to the selection committee that much more compelling. Sophomore center Lynetta Kizer had a team-high 22 points and 10 rebounds, and freshman forward Tianna Hawkins added 13 points and a team-high 11 rebounds. The Terrapins played the final 5:28 with four players with four fouls, including Kizer and Hawkins, but did not commit an infraction the rest of the way. Instead, Kizer's basket with 3:14 left gave the Terrapins a 71-61 lead.

CHARLOTTE, N.C.-- Twice this season, the Maryland women's basketball team had led North Carolina State at halftime, only to watch the advantage melt away into disappointing losses.But, in perhaps their most satisfying win of the season, the Terps made a halftime lead stand up, beating the ninth-ranked Wolfpack, 61-48, last night.With some grit, solid defense and a trio of determined seniors, sixth seed Maryland (15-12) withstood a stern challenge to earn its first berth in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament semifinals in four years.

The Western Maryland women's basketball team held off a rally by host Muhlenberg over the final two minutes to win, 53-52, last night in the Centennial Conference semifinals. Western Maryland's Kelly Cramp made a foul shot with 1:40 left for a 53-50 lead, but Muhlenberg's Susan Marchiano cut the margin to one on a jumper and then made a steal with seven seconds left, but couldn't convert. Western Maryland (21-6) vies for its first conference championship against visiting Swarthmore at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Four games in four days. That's what it would take for the Maryland women's basketball team to win the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, which would be the program's first such championship in 16 years. It sounds like a daunting task considering that the No. 25 Terps haven't won four straight league contests since the 2000-01 season. But sophomore guard Shay Doron, who played for Israel's national team against European squads during the summer of 2003, said the possibility isn't that far-fetched.

The redness around Shay Doron's eyes spoke volumes about the pain welling up inside. Less than 30 minutes after the seventh-seeded Maryland women's basketball team's season came to a halt in a 75-65 loss to second-seeded Ohio State in a second-round game of the NCAA tournament's Philadelphia Regional late Tuesday night, Doron, the Terps' gifted shooting guard, acknowledged that ending the year this early wasn't part of the game plan. "This year's team is one of the best teams I've ever been on -- personality-wise and basketball-wise," the sophomore said.

Shay Doron, one of the five upperclassmen on the Maryland women's basketball team, is outspoken and candid about the Terps' 14-1 record. "We definitely should be undefeated, but we let one game slip away," the junior guard said, referring to the 80-75 loss to now-No. 1 Tennessee at the Paradise Jam in the U.S. Virgin Islands on Nov. 26. "We didn't expect to lose to Tennessee. We're a confident team, and we know that we can play with the best of them. We proved that really early, and we've gotten a lot better since then."

The Maryland women's basketball team finished its regular season with a 94-61 loss to ninth-ranked Florida State on Sunday in a game that juxtaposed the value of veteran leadership against the inconsistency often associated with youth. With three seniors in their starting lineup, the visiting Seminoles withstood Maryland's 6-0 burst to open the game, tied it soon after and used deft 3-point shooting to pull away before halftime. "I think from our end, it was a game that was not very typical of how we play," Maryland coach Brenda Frese said.

In 2006, the Maryland women's basketball team won the NCAA title in Boston, just a short ride from here down the Massachusetts Turnpike. But these Terrapins do not have Kristi Toliver and Crystal Langhorne. On Thursday night, Maryland received a major setback in its attempt to reach its seventh consecutive NCAA tournament, losing, 83-70, to Boston College at Conte Forum. "We put pressure on ourselves because we knew we controlled our destiny if we go out and win this game," guard Lori Bjork said.

COLLEGE PARK - -For the Maryland women's basketball team, playing at Comcast Center used to mean victory was all but ensured. It had won every game there for almost three years and started this season with 12 consecutive victories at home. Now, after a 58-57 loss to sixth-ranked Duke on Sunday night, Maryland might be seeking comfort on the road. Despite erasing an 11-point deficit late in the second half, the Terrapins (14-6, 2-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) dropped their second in a row at Comcast and third straight overall.

COLLEGE PARK - - The Maryland women's basketball team normally won't encounter opponents that can match its height inside, but Thursday's game against Boston College was an exception. So instead of relying on brawn, the Terrapins used cunning and quickness for a 72-65 victory before 4,773 at Comcast Center. Diandra Tchatchouang scored a game-high 18 points for Maryland, which extended its school-record home-court winning streak to 48 games and moved to 10-0 against Boston College.

RALEIGH, N.C. - -Road games have confounded the Maryland women's basketball team this season, and that trend continued in a 73-45 loss to North Carolina State on Thursday night at Reynolds Coliseum. In the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both schools, Maryland dropped its third of four games away from Comcast Center, ended its four-game winning streak and lost for just the second time in 11 games. The Terrapins ended their five-game winning streak against the Wolfpack after entering with two straight victories here.

The goal for the Maryland women's basketball team Sunday night in the opening round of the Terrapin Classic was simple: Whatever you do, keep your eyes off the scoreboard. The challenge was more daunting than it might have seemed, given that the Terrapins were playing Stony Brook, a bottom-dwelling team from the America East, on a night when seemingly everything was clicking. Maryland (10-2) scored the first eight points of the game and led by 20 at halftime, but what impressed coach Brenda Frese the most about her team's 76-44 win at Comcast Center was that the players achieved their primary objective.

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The Maryland women's basketball team's hope for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament is still alive - barely.

COLLEGE PARK -- Coach Brenda Frese's goals for the Maryland women's basketball team's exhibition against the Lake Truck All-Stars were modest: to get in a little preseason work and to get out of the night unscathed and uninjured. Both objectives were easily met, as the defending national champion Terps cruised to an 80-64 win before a modest crowd of about 1,000 at Comcast Center, even though the performance wasn't midseason smooth. Maryland shot 32 percent from the field in the second half, and essentially traded baskets with the All-Stars.

COLLEGE PARK - -Every game, it seems, brings a new lesson for the young Maryland women's basketball team. Earlier this week, the Terrapins had to learn how to survive when their shots weren't falling. On Thursday night, they had to figure out how to persevere after wasting a 26-point lead and repeatedly throwing the ball away. Maryland (3-0) leaned on Lynetta Kizer and Diandra Tchatchouang and pulled away for an 84-67 victory over Old Dominion in front of an announced 4,681 at Comcast Center.
