Maui Invitational Various times [ESPN2, ESPNU] Three games from the college basketball tournament are on ESPN2 (a doubleheader starting at 3 p.m., another at midnight) and one on the largely unwatchable ESPNU (9:30 p.m.). What to watch for: any coach donning the traditional colorful island shirt wear. That's a coach to root for.

LAHAINA, Hawaii - -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.

COLLEGE PARK -- Start with a season-opening trip to Hawaii in November and the possibility of playing Indiana in this year's Maui Invitational.Mix in a nationally televised rematch at the Baltimore Arena on Dec. 10 with Massachusetts, the team it upset in the second round of last year's NCAA tournament.Include a February trip to the Alamodome in San Antonio to play Cincinnati. Then throw in the 16 games Maryland will play in the Atlantic Coast Conference.Together, it represents one of the most interesting schedules the Terps have played in years -- and certainly the most challenging Gary Williams has put together since returning to Maryland five years ago.Coming back nearly intact from last year's 18-12 team that made a surprise run to the NCAA tournament's Sweet 16, Maryland will open the 1994-95 season against Chaminade on Nov. 21 in the opening round of the three-game Maui Invitational.

Maryland released a 2009-10 men's basketball schedule Tuesday. It contains lots of similarities - and one marked difference - with last season's. Like last season, the Terps will ease into their nonconference schedule with a series of November games they will be expected to win. Also like last season, Maryland gets tested in a rugged, pre-Christmas tournament. Last season, it was the Old Spice Classic in Florida. The Terps upset Michigan State, a Top 10 team, before losing to Gonzaga and Georgetown.

MAUI, Hawaii -- The distractions were behind him yesterday as Maryland men's basketball coach Gary Williams sat with his back to the Pacific Ocean, unable to see the towering palms, the tropical greenery or the wall of rocks that surrounded a small pond to his left. Still, Williams was aware of his surroundings. To his left sat coach Tom Izzo, whose Michigan State team he could face tomorrow in the second round of the 22nd annual EA Sports Maui Invitational at the Lahaina Civic Center if the Terps get past Gonzaga at 5 p.m. today.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- Defending NCAA champion Kentucky is the headliner at the Puerto Rico Shootout. Last season, the Wildcats went to Hawaii for the Maui Invitational. Two years ago, they were in the Great Alaska Shootout, and in 1995 they went to Madison Square Garden for the ECAC Holiday Festival.The same marquee teams pop up in early-season tournaments at exotic locales, picking up extra games, a recruiting edge and more TV exposure, but legislation moving through the NCAA would limit the appearances a program can make in so-called "exempt" events, which don't count toward the regular-season limit of 27 games.

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 two 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.

LAHAINA, Hawaii - The Maryland Terrapins' quest to reach uncharted territory - the Final Four in Minneapolis - begins tonight on an island some 5,000 miles from home, in a tournament field richer than any in its 17-year history. During their three-day visit at the Maui Invitational, the sixth-ranked Terps relish the possibilities of testing and being tested by No. 8 Illinois in the semifinal round and top-ranked Arizona in Wednesday's title game. Maryland also is insisting it will not get too far ahead of itself at the Lahaina Civic Center, where its first step toward winning the tournament comes with tonight's 9 o'clock season-opening tip-off against unranked Louisville on ESPN.
