Paul McMullen has worked for The Sun since 1981. He was a beat reporter on Maryland football and basketball teams from 1993-2000. The Brooklyn Park native is also the author of "Maryland Basketball: Tales from Cole Field House." He is a practitioner of the snowflake jumper - no two are alike. Steve, Saugus, Mass: It is disappointing to see Maryland not in the NCAAs considering they beat Duke twice, Georgia Tech once and Memphis once - all top 25 teams at one point this season. In fact, the Boston Globe had them seeded 11th in the West prior to Sunday's selection show.

No. 3 Maryland (11-3) vs. No. 5 Massachusetts (13-2) Site: Carrier Dome, Syracuse, N.Y. Time: 12:30 p.m. TV: Comcast SportsNet Outlook: This is only the second meeting between the schools, and it features a potent offense against a stifling defense. UMass, which is trying to make its first final four and is playing in its second consecutive quarterfinal round, can score as well as anyone.

I stopped midway for coffee in Burlington at one of the state's 4 million Waffle Houses. The wait staff asked more pointed questions than the White House press corps. "What are you down here for?" "Who you rooting for?" "Where you from?" The woman who served me said she was born in Hyattsville, and is a Duke fan. She was promptly shouted down by Martha, who wanted to talk about her family in Sykesville.
