It takes a big man to make a 20-inch rainbow trout look like a guppy. It takes somebody like the University of Maryland's 6-foot-6 forward Byron Mouton. In hoops lingo, Mouton is a small forward. To us mere gravity-challenged mortals, he's small the way the Grand Canyon is just a ditch. But there's no doubt that Mouton is a big fisherman. He tries to get out twice a week "on Friday and Sunday, especially if it's a nice day out." This day, Mouton is standing along Lake Elkhorn in Howard County wearing a sombrero with Maryland-red trim, working the tiny spinning rig in his huge hands.

CHARLOTTE,  N.C. -- Growing up outside Boston, Maryland forward Evan Smotrycz was - and is - more of a pro sports fan than college fan. But his affection for the Terps started long before he transferred from Michigan before last season. It started early, when Smotrycz played a college basketball video game that featured Steve Francis on the cover. He always chose Maryland, because of Francis. Francis dominated the video games Smotrycz played more than he did during his one year in College Park.

Byron Mouton understands how lucky he is. As a senior small forward with the No. 3 Maryland Terrapins, Mouton plays basketball with joy and passion he can't hide. He is full of demonstrative emotion on the court, be it a pumping fist to accentuate a basket, a scream and the shake of his head to punctuate a slam or that ferocious look the comes over him as he tears the ball away from an opponent or two while claiming another rebound. Mouton doesn't talk much trash, although he relishes those dirty-work moments that are his signature.

Byron Mouton has often had to reinvent himself. A big scorer in high school in Louisiana who turned into more of a defensive stopper during his two seasons at Maryland, Mouton tried to start an online basketball apparel company while finishing his professional career in China three years ago. "I called it '6th Man For The True Fan,'" Mouton recalled recently. "People could take any jersey and we'd put their name on it. But after I came back to Maryland after the season, the business connection I had for the fabric in China went away.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Tayshaun Prince led Kentucky in scoring last night, but he didn't inflict the kind of damage upon Maryland that he did on Tulsa in the Wildcats' second-round victory. The willowy, 6-foot-10 senior wing nearly reached his average with 17 points at the Carrier Dome in an NCAA tournament East Regional semifinal, but he worked for every one and didn't come close to breaking loose for another 41-point outburst. Thank you, Byron Mouton. Given the similarities between Prince and Mike Dunleavy, there was speculation that Maryland coach Gary Williams might mark the Kentucky star with Chris Wilcox, who shut down the Duke junior at Cole Field House last month.

SEATTLE -- While the Orioles remain hopeful that backup catcher Lenny Webster will at least be ready to begin a rehab assignment when the club returns home this weekend, Webster indicates such optimism may be better tempered with patience.Webster put himself through a series of running drills again yesterday and reported no pain. However, he admitted that the stress from catching continues to cause his sprained right ankle discomfort."It's not right yet," Webster said before taking batting practice.

Roster limitations, deference to veterans and the minor-league schedule persuaded the Orioles to promote only three players from within the organization when rosters expand today. Rochester catcher Charlie Greene, outfielder Lyle Mouton and Bowie outfielder Eugene Kingsale will join the club immediately.The players promoted were named as much for the needs they fill as for meritorious achievement. Mouton and Kingsale are expected to provide depth in an outfield ripped by nagging injuries.

In one move Thursday night the Orioles not only got younger and got pitching help, they completed Lyle Mouton's rescue from oblivion.The trade of veteran outfielder Joe Carter to the San Francisco Giants for minor-league pitcher Darin Blood did not provide an immediate return as Blood was assigned yesterday to Triple-A Rochester. However, the accompanying promotion of Mouton from Rochester provided the Orioles a fresher set of legs and the former Chicago White Sox outfielder a fresh chance at the major leagues.

COLLEGE PARK - They are trying to keep their minds on the University of Detroit, which will bring considerable talent to Cole Field House tomorrow and could threaten to end the nation's longest nonconference home-court winning streak. At the same time, the No. 3 Maryland Terrapins are battling their own emotions while missing a popular teammate. What an unusual week it has been for the Terps, who concluded their third consecutive day of practice yesterday without the services of starting senior forward Byron Mouton.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- As the Orioles prepare for today's first intrasquad game, manager Ray Miller continues to keep close tabs on Chris Hoiles, whose running has been labored as he deals with a chronically sore hip that won't allow him to catch. Hoiles will serve as the designated hitter today, a role he would fill part-time along with some duty at first base if he makes the club.Yesterday's workout included base-running drills. Asked about Hoiles afterward, Miller said, "He's obviously laboring a little bit. We'll just have to see if it gets better.

The murder was fake, the trial scripted, the kids reading off notes to play their roles of cops, lawyers, witnesses and jurors as part of an exercise to learn the ins and outs of the criminal justice system. But the courtroom and judge were real, and the best moments were unrehearsed. It was the young Chaivez Brown ad-libbing an end to the prosecution's closing argument, telling jurors "it could've been you" at the other end of the bullet that killed the maintenance worker, infusing some passion into the case.

RALEIGH, N.C. - The Alabama State rooting section raced down the steps of the RBC Center early last night, trying to razz the Duke players as they warmed up for their first- round game of the NCAA tournament. The Blue Devils barely blinked. Except for the first four minutes, when the Hornets showed some flair and fearlessness in matching Duke point-for-point on the scoreboard, the game was typical of most between a No. 16 seed and a No. 1 seed. In other words, a blowout. Despite playing point guard Chris Duhon sparingly because of the bruised ribs he suffered in Sunday's overtime loss to Maryland in the ACC tournament championship game, and despite shooting guard J.J. Redick's shooting slump continuing for all but a brief burst to open the second half, Duke rolled, 96-61.

The older brother of Maryland Terrapins senior forward Byron Mouton was shot and killed in an apparent carjacking incident last weekend in Houston, and Mouton is not expected to rejoin the Terps until Sunday. The Houston Chronicle reported that Kevin Gerard Mouton, 32, was found slumped over the steering wheel of his car with a gunshot wound in his side in the parking lot of a Houston apartment complex around 5:15 a.m. on Sunday. He died minutes later. A Maryland athletic department source said members of the Mouton family informed Byron of his brother's death after Maryland won the BB&T Classic at MCI Center on Monday night.

ATLANTA - Gary Williams has never had an easy time saying goodbye to his seniors. He usually cries after giving them a final sendoff at Maryland's annual men's basketball postseason banquet, and count on Williams to let the tears flow when that time comes next month. After all, look where the older guys have taken the old coach. As the Terrapins prepare for their second straight splash in the NCAA tournament's Final Four, beginning with tomorrow night's semifinal date with Kansas, they are fortified by a veteran squad led by a senior class that Williams has called the best ever to grace the university.
