COLLEGE PARK - Maryland coach Mark Turgeon didn't seem to mind that his Terps missed a dozen 3-point shots and nearly as many free throws Tuesday night at Comcast Center. He even gave credit to Lafayette for hanging in with there only long-range shooting and surprisingly tenacious zone defense that shut down sophomore center Alex Len until early in the second half. The Terps won, 83-74, and Turgeon, who gained a reputation in his first season at Maryland for rarely being satisfied, seemed content despite the fact that a pesky bunch of jump shooters - and shot-blockers - from the little Patriot League hung around against an ACC team despite playing without their top scorer.

The assumption for Maryland going into the 2012-13 basketball season was that one of the team's freshmen power forwards was going to take away many of James Padgett's minutes, and perhaps his starting job. Though Padgett's minutes have decreased, the 6-8 senior is still starting for Maryland (1-1) going into Friday's game against Long Island University (0-2) at Comcast Center. Many of the minutes have gone to a freshman, but not the one most fans and maybe even second-year coach Mark Turgeon expected.

Thomas Gwaltney Padgett, who was known as Hampden's unofficial "Ambassador of Good Will," died Tuesday of a heart attack at his home there. He was 79.Since his wife's death in 1989, Mr. Padgett seldom varied from his daily regimen. Early in the morning, he'd leave his West 37th Street rowhouse and head to The Avenue (36th Street).After a breakfast at 10 a.m. of a cheese omelet, bacon and eggs or sausage and French toast and joking with customers at Mike's Place Diner on West 36th Street, Mr. Padgett would join several friends on a bench at Roland Avenue and 36th Street.

SAN ANTONIO -- For Kentucky starters Scott Padgett and Jeff Sheppard, tonight's game against Utah at the Alamodome represents more than just a chance to play for the national championship. It's also a chance to make up for lost opportunities.Padgett lost his chance two years ago as a freshman, when he flunked out of school at midseason and the Wildcats went on to win a national championship. Sheppard missed out last year, when he was redshirted by former coach Rick Pitino and Kentucky reached the championship game.

Playing together for the first time in their basketball careers, forwards James Padgett and Jordan Williams on Sunday gave local fans a glimpse of their future at the University of Maryland. On this night, their performance wasn't bad, either. Padgett, 6 feet 8, earned Most Valuable Player honors by scoring a game-high 22 points on 11-for-13 shooting, and Williams, 6-10, added seven points, seven rebounds and four blocks, leading the U.S. All-Stars to a 112-86 win over the Baltimore All-Stars in the Charm City Challenge.

After pleading guilty to a charge of reckless driving Friday afternoon in Prince George's County District Court, Maryland forward James Padgett will not be suspended by coach Mark Turgeon, an athletic department spokesman said. Turgeon was not available to comment. Padgett was arrested in College Park in June and charged with driving while impaired, but that was dropped amid "a number of issues", according to Padgett's attorney David Putzi. Among them was the amount of mouth alcohol in Padgett's system as a result of the player's acid reflux condition.

James Padgett is scheduled to appear in Prince George's County Court on Friday to face charges of driving while impaired by alcohol. The Maryland senior power forward was pulled over June 16 at 3:28 a.m. by the University of Maryland Police Department. His court date is set for 1:15 p.m. Friday in Hyattsville. The Diamondback, Maryland's student newspaper, first reported the news of Padgett's legal issue . "We are aware of this situation and have no further comment as this is a pending legal matter," a Maryland athletic department official said in a statement.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Marylandsports. What is going on with all the injuries on Maryland's defense and can the Terps weather the storm? Jeff Barker: If there is one Maryland unit I figured to be improved, it was the defense. The unit should still be better than last season - players seem to be taking to new coordinator Brian Stewart's 3-4 - but the Terps have taken a big preseason hit. Defensive lineman Andre Monroe is out for the season.

After covering three North Carolina wins over Maryland this season, I'm ready to move on. I've seen the movie now, and I know how it ends. Give Maryland credit for believing they could win. That's the arrogance of youth. And I mean that in a positive way. “We had a lot of confidence, especially when the game was close,” said Terrell Stoglin, who scored 30 points and shot better than 50 percent for the second straight day. “We thought we was going to make another run and take the lead.” But Maryland's initial optimism meant that the Terps were awfully disappointed when the 85-69 contest was over.

Can basketball players be too nice? That's a question that has certainly crossed the minds of Maryland forward James Padgett and his coaches. Padgett, unfailingly polite and quiet-spoken off the court, has developed some polished post moves and enters Saturday's Georgia Tech game second (to North Carolina's Tyler Zeller) in the Atlantic Coast Conference in offensive rebounds at 3.5 per game. There is a nagging sense that the junior could perhaps do more. Coming off a big game in Tuesday night's win over Miami, Padgett averages 9.1 points and 5.7 rebounds.

Maryland came into Tuesday's game at Comcast Center against Miami trying to chase away some ghosts from its recent past. The demons came from a double-overtime loss to the Hurricanes three weeks before in Coral Gables, Fla., and a second-half collapse at Virginia three days ago. Recovering from their most lopsided defeat of the season, the Terps did a major exorcism, scoring 10 straight points in a game-closing 14-4 run in the final 97 seconds to...

A 42-year-old man -- at large for more than 17 years in an East Baltimore killing -- was convicted of voluntary manslaughter and the use of a handgun yesterday in the 1981 shooting death of a teen-ager.Orlando Padgett was convicted by a jury in the death of William Redditt, who was 17 when he was killed outside an after-hours club in the 1900 block of Clifton Ave. in July 1981. Padgett had been living in Seattle until he was arrested for disorderly conduct and a record check turned up the murder warrant.

 Coaching changes are not only good for college basketball programs, they are good for players. If the retirement of Gary Williams and the hiring of Mark Turgeon has helped reinvigorate the Terps when it comes to recruiting, it has also benefited junior forward James Padgett more than any other player. Maybe Padgett would have emerged after two disappointing years if Williams was still in College Park, but listening to Padgett talk earlier this season and watching him perform for the past month leads to me to believe that Turgeon has much to do with the leap Maryland's hardest-working player has taken from a bust to an offensive-rebounding beast.

What the statistics say : James Padgett leads the ACC in  offensive rebounds (4.1 per game). What it means : It means that, minus Jordan Williams this season, Padgett has moved to fill some inside gaps. He's found himself as an inside player. That's important given that the Terps will play some big, deep teams this season (Duke, Carolina) that will more than challenge Maryland's front line. But I have to ask…if Padgett can average four offensive rebounds per game, why can't he be among the defensive rebounding leaders as well?
