Welcome back to Morning Shootaround, a regular feature this season the day after Maryland basketball games. While we can't bring you into the Terps' locker room after games - reporters haven't been allowed in there since the last couple of years under Gary Williams - we will recap what was said in the press conference afterward by Maryland coach Mark Turgeon and his players. We will give some of our own insight into what transpired on the court during the previous night's game and what the Terps will be working on at practice looking ahead to their next game.

Mount St. Mary's ranked 67th out of 67 Division I programs in offense and points per game and 66th in assists per game and scoring margin. But the number that resonated most with coach Tom Gravante was the team's 1-15 record in 2014. “This was one of my toughest seasons,” said Gravante, whose previous worst mark in 20 years as a head coach was a 2-12 record in 2008. “I think I posted two or three wins once before. But to go 1-15, this is a tough year, a real tough year. You don't want to expect something like this or anticipate something like this, but under the circumstances of graduating 22 young men last year and not having a lot of experience coming back, we were hopeful and we battled, but it became what it was.” A 9-5 victory over Northeast Conference foe Wagner on April 19 helped the Mountaineers of joining first-year program Monmouth as the only winless teams in Division I. Gravante acknowledged that a 14-game losing streak to open the season began to weigh on the players.

Led by Tilman Dunbar's 20 points and a career-high 19 points from Thurgood Wynn, Navy men's basketball dominated the second half and beat host Monmouth, 85-66, Friday night. The Hawks (5-5), seeking their fifth straight win, were led by Stephen Spinella's 16 points and Andrew Nicholas' 15, but it wasn't enough to offset the Midshipmen, who shot 58percent (32-of-55) as they scored a season high in points and put five players in double figures while breaking a two-game losing streak.

Don Zimmerman may have raised a few eyebrows when he elected to promote freshman Max Maxwell to join senior Matt Gregoire and sophomore Nate Lewnes as starting attackmen for UMBC's season opener at No. 3 Maryland on Feb. 15. Maxwell endured a rough debut when he committed a game-high four turnovers and took zero shots in the team's 14-3 loss to the Terps, but he may have validated his coach's decision when he scored his first career hat trick on...

COLLEGE PARK - Last season, Mark Turgeon had kidney stones. This year, the Maryland coach is suffering through their metaphorical equivalent - turnovers. Playing against a tiny, overmatched Monmouth team, the Terps committed a season-high 23 turnovers but elevated their play significantly in the second half to secure their ninth straight victory, 71-38, before an announced 9,265 at Comcast Center on Wednesday night. It's Maryland's longest winning streak since 2002. It was the fewest points scored against the Terps and their largest victory margin this season.

In the lowest-scoring Division I game since the introduction of the three-point line, Monmouth beat host Princeton, 41-21, last night. Princeton tied the record for fewest points in a Division I game since the three-point line was instituted in 1986-87. Georgia Southern also finished with 21 in a 40-point loss to Coastal Carolina on Jan. 2, 1997. The previous record for fewest combined points since 1986-87 was 67, which happened twice. SMU beat Texas-Arlington, 36-31, on Dec. 16, 1989, and Wisconsin-Green Bay defeated Northern Michigan, 46-21, on Nov. 22, 1996.

UMBC's 10-8 victory over visiting Monmouth on Saturday was perhaps somewhat closer than Don Zimmerman would have liked, but it was still an encouraging result after the Retrievers opened the season with a 14-3 loss to No. 11 Maryland on Feb. 15. “I thought it was very important,” Zimmerman said Monday morning. “It was our home opener and coming off a loss at Maryland, it was a chance to get in the win column. We knew it was going to be a tough game. This was a team that had known for a year that they would be playing us. So they had a year to prepare for UMBC, and they did a heck of a job with it. They knew our personnel, and they seemed to know a lot of the schemes that we run. We knew it was going to be a tough game.

A UMBC team in search of its first win of 2014 will get that chance when Monmouth visits UMBC Stadium in Catonsville on Saturday at 1 p.m. It may not be easy for the Retrievers to even their record at 1-1. This is the Hawks' first year of competition in lacrosse, and they will play in the program's first game. That means that there is no film of Monmouth's games, which makes it more difficult for UMBC to scout its opponent. “This is their first game ever, so you're kind of going in a little blind,” coach Don Zimmerman said Thursday.

The Mount St. Mary's women will compete in a new-look Northeast Conference this season with defending champion Monmouth and 2012 champion Quinnipiac having departed for the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. Mountaineers coach B.J. Johnson has mixed feelings about the changes which leave just eight teams in the conference. “First obviously, we don't really care who's in the conference. Our goals remain the same no matter who we play,” Johnson said. “Secondly, it helps us because with less teams, life becomes a little bit easier in the regular season.

Denver Outlaws midfielder Drew Snider (Maryland) was named Major League Lacrosse's Most Improved Player, the league announced Thursday. Snider earned six first-place votes from the league's coaches and general managers, two more than fellow former Terp Ryan Young of the Charlotte Hounds, who tallied four. The Chesapeake Bayhawks' Ben Rubeor (Loyola High) and the Hamilton Nationals' Kevin Cunningham and Jeremy Thompson each received a pair of first-place votes.  A second-year midfielder, Snider made a strong case for Most Improved Player -- not because he performed poorly in his rookie season, but because he has played outstanding lacrosse in 2013 for the Outlaws, who are 14-0 and became the first team in MLL history to go undefeated in the regular season.

Navy's women's lacrosse players made it clear that they are not in the NCAA tournament this time to enjoy the experience. After three years of first-round losses, the eighth-seeded Mids are in it to win. Monmouth, which lost in a play-in game last season, apparently had the same idea. The Hawks made 11th-ranked Navy work for everything it got Friday, especially in the first half. Monmouth scored first and was within one until the final 7.1 seconds of the first half, when Mids senior attacker Jasmine DePompeo dished out the first her five assists and sparked a five-goal run that carried Navy to a 12-6 victory at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium for its first NCAA tournament win in six years as a Division I program.
