Chaminade point guard Steven Bennett ran as fast as he could with the ball in his hands Monday in the opening round of the Maui Invitational. He treated each and every possession as a timed obstacle-course run, jetting left and right to avoid Maryland defenders before ending up at the basket. Bennett's plan - his team's plan, really - was born out of necessity. He stood just 5 feet 6, and his teammates, though taller, paled in comparison to the Terrapins in terms of size and stature.

Mark Twain once wrote, "I went to Maui to stay a week and remained five. I have not once thought of business or care or human toil or trouble or sorrow or weariness." In his three previous trips to the Maui Invitational, Gary Williams certainly has thought of all those things. Sometimes in the same day. This time, the Maryland coach is looking for a different outcome: three straight victories and a championship in one of college basketball's marquee early-season events. Not that Williams is going to stay five weeks - he will barely be there five days - but he is hoping this is not another case of paradise lost for his Terps.

My spouse and I are planning a trip to Maui, Hawaii. We have heard that food prices in markets and restaurants have soared recently in Hawaii because of the increased costs of fuel. What can we expect to pay? A small fortune. Hawaii's food prices have always been higher because of shipping costs, and with gas prices in the stratosphere - well, owie, Maui. Or, for a more eloquent answer, read what Lynn Nakamura-Tengan, an extension educator for the University of Hawaii, said in a recent e-mail: "Maui does have the highest fuel prices in the state.

COLLEGE PARK - As the Maryland Terrapins prepared for their final tuneup of the preseason, Maui already weighed heavily on their minds. With six intrasquad scrimmages and an exhibition game behind them, Maryland will complete its last preseason formality tonight at Cole Field House, where the EA Sports/California All-Stars will meet the nation's sixth-ranked team in the Terps' final exhibition. Then, the Terps can't get to the Hawaiian island quickly enough. After flying west on Friday morning, they will open their regular season Monday against Louisville in the first round of the Maui Invitational.

LAHAINA, Hawaii -- It wasn't difficult to spot 7-foot-1 center Will Bowers plodding around one of the four pools here at the Westin Maui Resort and Spa, wearing a red Maryland visor and with a towel draped around his neck. As it turned out, a 2-1 finish in the Maui Invitational gave the men's basketball team a little time to relax. In between, there was some time to think. Bowers and a few of his teammates sat in lounge chairs around the pool Monday night after the Terps' 88-76 loss to No. 9-ranked Gonzaga, the eventual tournament runner-up.

Even with the car windows rolled up, the perfume of Maui is unmistakable. There are the top notes: the crisp, rise-and-shine scent of eucalyptus floating from the uplands, and the sweet nip of just-mown hay. There are the bottom notes: the musky smells of rain-spattered soil, seaweed and the salt spray of the Pacific. In the background, there's the faint, velvety mix of almost-gardenia, almost-jasmine that promises plumeria blossoms are close by. And on this drive, coming from the small, plastic-wrapped aluminum loaf pan on the rental car's floorboard, the intoxicating aroma of Auntie Julia's banana bread.

You may not recognize Debbie Kowalski Wilson's name, but if you've opened a Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue in the past six years, chances are you've seen her work. Wilson, who is from Edgewood and now lives in Hawaii, has had her Maui Girl swimsuits featured in the popular edition of the magazine 48 times - and more than 200 times in the online version. This year, Wilson's swimsuits were featured 14 times, including a centerfold with cover model Kate Upton in Antarctica. And with Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of summer here on the mainland, quickly approaching, Wilson is preparing for a busy season.

George Horton ran a college baseball powerhouse at Cal State-Fullerton, the kind of program that had no place for someone like Kurt Suzuki. Horton had never seen or heard of Suzuki before a scout pal mentioned the high schooler in Hawaii. "We didn't know a whole heck of a lot about him," Horton said. "We heard from our network of friends that this little catcher from Maui wanted to come and walk on at Fullerton. " On an island with 160,000 permanent residents, Suzuki played against five or six high schools.

COLLEGE PARK - During two bad days in Maui last week, the Maryland Terrapins fell to earth by losing back-to-back games to Illinois and Dayton. Then came the release of yesterday's weekly Associated Press Top 25 poll, which dropped Maryland seven spots to 13th. "We pretty much knew it was coming. Of course, it hurts," junior center Lonny Baxter said. "It's over now. We just have to go on with our season." "We didn't play up to [expectations] in Maui, but I don't really get caught up in the rankings," added senior forward Terence Morris, who doesn't think the team got caught up in the loftiest preseason hype of the Gary Williams era. "We know we're good.
