ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- To reach the Final Four, the shortest players on the Maryland women's basketball team may have to play bigger roles. Five-foot-nine junior guard Shay Doron, 5-7 freshman point guard Kristi Toliver and 6-1 freshman forward Marissa Coleman each have battled balky shooting streaks in recent games that have led to some closer-than-expected outcomes. Their importance will be magnified tonight when the second-seeded Terps meet No. 3 seed and defending national champion Baylor in an Albuquerque Regional semifinal tonight at 9 at Bob King Court at the University of New Mexico.

Among the issues that caught the attention of Towson coach Shawn Nadelen while reviewing Saturday's 9-7 loss to Colonial Athletic Association rival Hofstra, perhaps the most glaring was the offense's shooting woes. Of the 29 shots the team took, only 10 were on goal. That meant that Pride junior goalkeeper Chris Selva needed to make just three saves. “Not putting the ball on goal is a big issue,” Nadelen said Thursday morning. “When you can generate shots, you need to put them on cage to give yourself a chance to score.

COLLEGE PARK -- For a half, the Notre Dame women's basketball team played third-ranked Maryland about as close to the scouting report as could be expected, taking away its interior game and transition offense, daring the Terps to win the game from the perimeter. Maryland took the dare and beat the 23rd-ranked Fighting Irish, 75-59, last night to earn a berth in tomorrow's Preseason Women's National Invitation Tournament championship game against No. 4 LSU at Comcast Center.

Washington. -- The national pastime, at least here at the seat of the national government, is a game economists call ''rent seeking.'' It has many permutations, one of which has produced the ''perimeter rule'' concerning National Airport, which sits on the Virginia bank of the Potomac, a short drive from the Capitol, the Yankee Stadium of rent seeking.Rent seeking is the attempt by a private faction, in league with compliant public officials, to bend public power to private advantage by conferring either an advantage on that faction or a disadvantage on that faction's competition.

Before his team's second-round game, UNC-Asheville guard Matt Dickey said it is not often that such a small school gets to be "on TV and SportsCenter and stuff. " It initially got better for Dickey on Thursday as his 16th seeded Bulldogs hung with No. 1 Pittsburgh until midway through the second half. But then reality ? in the form of Pitt's larger size and too much Ashton Gibbs ? set in and the Panthers prevailed, 74-51. Pitt (28-5) will now face Butler on Saturday in an NCAA tournament third-round game at Verizon Center.

COLLEGE PARK - Mike Montgomery is nothing if not blunt. The coach of California, which plays Maryland in the NCAA tournament's first round Thursday in Kansas City, Mo., was asked yesterday how his team's inside game is progressing. His response? There is no inside game. Period. "We just don't [have one]. There's nothing we can do about it," Montgomery told reporters during a conference call yesterday. "We just don't really have a guy that we can station at the post with his back to the basket."

COLLEGE PARK - The preseason predictions can be put away like a pair of worn-out sneakers. They are not the only things that Maryland wants to bury when the Terrapins open the 2008-2009 season tonight against Bucknell at Comcast Center. "We don't want to make the same mistakes we made last year with teams that are not in our conference," junior forward Landon Milbourne said. "We've got to come out and play hard every single day." In a 19-15 season that ended with a second-round loss in the National Invitation Tournament, Maryland had several letdowns, including back-to-back home defeats in December to Ohio and American.

One-and-dones leave void Memphis is certainly going to miss Derrick Rose. Same is true for Kansas State and Michael Beasley, Southern California and O.J. Mayo, UCLA and Kevin Love, Indiana and Eric Gordon, Arizona and Jerryd Bayless, Ohio State and Kosta Koufos, Syracuse and Donte Greene. But the coaches, teammates and fans of these preternatural talents who went straight to the NBA after one season are not alone. The sport will miss them, too, because this year's freshman class - and next year's, according to most reports - is simply not as good.

Most city residents haven't noticed the thin lines added to telephone poles in North Baltimore, creating a nearly invisible perimeter around the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus and surrounding neighborhoods. But for the Orthodox Jews who live within those neighborhoods, the wires create a symbolic wall, or eruv, which allows them to carry loads on the Sabbath within its borders. "It is the type of thing that anyone who doesn't need it won't notice," said Rabbi Binyamin Marwick of the Orthodox Union.

Host Century took its best shot at unbeaten Winters Mill last night. In the end, however, it was the No. 9 Falcons who delivered the knockout blow. Trailing by 10 midway through the third quarter, Winters Mill charged back with improved perimeter defense and clutch shooting down the stretch, surging to a 62-58 win that clinched the Carroll County title for the Falcons. "We didn't hit [shots] early, but we managed to do some things at the end," Falcons coach Bernie Koontz said. "I was proud of the kids for being able to manage the ball and not panic."
