Before a few scrimmages and games this season, Joe Cinosky has heard opponents voice the same thing once they get an up-close-and-personal look at Maryland's defense. "I've heard a couple guys say, `Man, you guys are big,' " said Cinosky, a senior defenseman who is 6 feet 3, 225 pounds. "It's something we kind of pride ourselves on." From 6-5, 240-pound sophomore Brian Farrell (Boys' Latin) to 6-1, 190-pound senior Ryne Adolph, Maryland's top seven close defensemen and long-stick midfielders could make up the largest unit in the country.

Here is the sixth installment of a series that checks in with the seven Division I programs in the state to give a glimpse into the past and the future. Teams are scheduled to appear according to the chronological order in which their seasons ended. Friday's visit was with Johns Hopkins. Monday's visit is with Maryland. REVIEW The good: The Terps became the first unseeded team to reach the NCAA tournament final in back-to-back campaigns - a noteworthy achievement considering that last year's squad graduated two starting attackmen and three starting defensemen and this spring's team did not have the services of senior midfielder Jake Bernhardt (broken collarbone)

It was not the smoothest start to a season, but the No. 3 University of Maryland men's lacrosse team got four points each from four different Terps to give coach John Tillman a 16-4 victory over visiting Detroit Mercy on Saturday in his first game at the helm. The Titans (0-4) capitalized on two nonreleasable Terrapin penalties to take a 2-0 lead with just under six minutes left in the first quarter, but from then on it was all Maryland as the Terps (1-0) scored 10 unanswered goals from the final minutes of the first quarter to midway through the third.

One game into the 2012 campaign, Maryland's young defense is feeling a little better about itself after Saturday's 12-6 victory over No. 19 Hartford. Against an offense that returned more than 88 percent of its offensive output - including its entire starting attack and midfield - the No. 8 Terps allowed just 23 shots and blanked senior attackman Ryan Compitello, who recorded 22 goals and 27 assists last year. “We did pretty well, I thought,” said sophomore Michael Ehrhardt, who joined sophomore Brian Cooper and freshman Goran Murray in making their first career starts on close defense.

It's not a stretch to say that the evolving state of the defense will be a prominent storyline for Maryland in 2012. That's what happens when a unit graduates all three starting close defensemen (Brett Schmidt, Max Schmidt, Ryder Bohlander), a starting long-stick midfielder (Brian Farrell) and one of two starting short-stick defensive midfielders (Dan Burns). But the cupboard isn't bare. Junior Jesse Bernhardt, who recorded two goals, two assists, 44 groundballs and 16 caused turnovers while backing up Farrell at long-stick midfielder, is a candidate to shift to close defense, and coach John Tillman has been impressed with what he has seen from players like sophomores Michael Ehrhardt, Emmett Cahill and Taylor Morgan and freshman Goran Murray.

It was in the midst of one of the most trying days in his life that a long, thin line of his Maryland lacrosse teammates appeared in front of Ryan Young. It was April 25, and Young, the senior attackman, was at St. Mary's Church in his Manhasset, N.Y., hometown to attend memorial services for his mother, Maria, 54, who had died a week earlier of pancreatic cancer. Young remembers looking up and seeing all those dozens of Terps — somber and in suits and ties — filing quietly into the church and thinking how fortunate he was to have teammates who had become like brothers.

Few opposing defensemen have rattled North Carolina senior attackman Billy Bitter the way Brett Schmidt has. The Maryland senior held Bitter without a point and caused four turnovers in an Atlantic Coast Conference tournament semifinal April 23, 2010. The only other time Schmidt and Bitter have tangled was April 24, 2009. That day, Bitter recorded three goals and two assists but also committed four turnovers — three of which were credited to Schmidt. But Schmidt took the diplomatic approach when talking about potentially tangling with Bitter again when the No. 7 Tar Heels visit the No. 6 Terps on Saturday at Byrd Stadium.

The Maryland men's lacrosse team is trying to stay above the fray. While analysts and the team's supporters have questioned the NCAA selection committee's decision to leave the reigning Atlantic Coast Conference tournament champions out of the top-eight seeds, the Terps have stayed focused on the task at hand. In fact, senior defenseman Max Schmidt said Maryland is eager to meet No. 8 seed North Carolina in an NCAA tournament first-round contest in Chapel Hill, N.C., on Sunday at 1 p.m. "With a team like UNC, you really can't get tired of playing them," Schmidt said.

Brett Schmidt has turned risk into reward. Schmidt, a lightly recruited prospect from Maple Glen, Pa., concedes that he didn't have much of a lacrosse background when he enrolled at Maryland in 2007. But three seasons later, the junior has emerged as the top defenseman for the No. 5 Terps. And as Maryland (8-2) prepares to meet No. 3 North Carolina in the semifinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament at Byrd Stadium in College Park tonight, Schmidt likely will get a crack at containing Tar Heels junior attackman and Tewaaraton Award candidate Billy Bitter.
