COLLEGE PARK - In their few free moments, Maryland players might be tempted to glance at the Atlantic Coast Conference's bowl-game scenarios, trying to narrow down where they might find themselves playing in the postseason. "Some people have [done it], just seeing where you could go," linebacker Matt Robinson (Atholton) said Tuesday. "That's always exciting. " But since bowl invitations are out of his control, the redshirt junior would prefer to focus on trying to win at North Carolina State on Saturday, and leave postseason predictions to the pundits.

Coaches Dave Pietramala figured to have the Blue Jays in position to win their first national title since 1987 quickly, and Hopkins is drawing close to the prize in Pietramala's third year. Widely considered the best defenseman to ever play the game, Pietramala has a deep, versatile offense and a defense that has allowed an average of six goals in its past seven games. That consistency could be decisive against a Syracuse team that can be as sloppy as it is exciting. Orangemen coach John Desko inherited a tremendous program from Roy Simmons III five years ago and hasn't missed a beat.

Ray Rice knifed through the heart of the New England Patriots defense, into the end zone and into our collective memories, his 83-yard touchdown run in the 2009 playoffs quickly becoming one of the most unforgettable plays in Ravens history and in his young career. On that frigid afternoon in Foxborough, Rice rushed for 159 yards and two touchdowns, carrying the Ravens offense and their hobbled quarterback, Joe Flacco, to a stunning wild-card win. It was the only time in eight career playoff games that Rice topped 70 rushing yards, and his two fumbles in Sunday's win over the Indianapolis Colts gave him five for his postseason career.

COLLEGE PARK -- Chris Corchiani took to heart North Carolina State's one-year, forced hiatus from the NCAA tournament last year. Yesterday, he reveled in the return of Fire and Ice."The tournament is so much fun," State's gritty point guard said. "When you have to sit out and don't play in it, you appreciate it so much more."There was a lot to appreciate about Corchiani's play in a 114-85 blowout of Southern Mississippi in the opening round of yesterday's East Regional at Cole Field House.

College basketball's postseason landscape shifted yesterday with the introduction of a 16-team men's tournament that will compete with the National Invitation Tournament for teams left out of the NCAA tournament's 65-team field. The new tournament, called the College Basketball Invitational (CBI), raises the possibility that schools could have to decide in March between competing bids from the NIT and CBI. Except for the championship round, it will be a single-elimination tournament played at campus sites.

LOS ANGELES -- In an unprecedented move, the National Collegiate Athletic Association lifted its sanction prohibiting Nevada-Las Vegas from defending its national title in basketball.The NCAA Committee on Infractions had ruled in July that UNLV would be prohibited from postseason play after the 1990-91 season as a final penalty stemming from the infractions case that led UNLV coach Jerry Tarkanian to take the association to court 13 years ago.However, in a ruling released yesterday, the committee offered UNLV two alternative penalties, both of which allowed the Runnin' Rebels to participate in postseason competition at the end of the current season.

As far as the Orioles are concerned, the current major-league playoff format should remain for a long, long time.Many Orioles players said they would prefer preserving the four division winners, even though expansion of the playoffs could mean more TV revenue -- and more opportunity for postseason play -- for them."

PHILADELPHIA -- The Toronto Blue Jays agonized for days over the designated hitter rule and the impact it might have on the outcome of the 90th World Series.It just isn't fair, said manager Cito Gaston, to make the American League team do without a key player in the National League city.It just isn't right, said general manager Pat Gillick, to have to play by a brand new set of rules at this point in the season.Somehow, it turned out all right anyway. Designated hitter Paul Molitor displaced batting champion John Olerud at first base and then proceeded to dispose of the Philadelphia Phillies.

COLLEGE PARK - For much of Maryland's season, the goal very simply was to perform better than in the game before. Coach Mark Turgeon said victories should be byproducts of playing the game properly, and he discouraged talk of winning and losing among players and coaches. But as the Terps (15-10, 5-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) prepared for Saturday's game at No. 22 Virginia (19-6, 6-5), the calculation had shifted. Turgeon is talking more now about the bottom line as the team makes a final push to qualify for postseason play.

PHILADELPHIA — No active big league starter had gone longer without pitching in the playoffs than the Phillies' Roy Halladay. So in Wednesday's opener of the National League Division Series, he more than made up for the wait, no-hitting the Cincinnati Reds in a 4-0 win. Halladay was masterful, retiring the first 14 Reds before walking Jay Bruce on a full-count pitch with two outs in the fifth inning. But that was all Cincinnati got as Halladay came within a pitch of his second perfect game of the season and the second perfect game in postseason history.

First basePadres: Wally Joyner has never appeared in the World Series, but has proved to be a steady -- if unspectacular -- performer in postseason play. He is a good defensive first baseman who has a reputation for hitting in the clutch. His .412 average with runners in scoring position was the second-highest of any major-league player during the regular season. Batted .313 in the NLCS with two RBIs.Yankees: Eventually, Tino Martinez is going to figure out this postseason thing and then there's going to be the devil to pay. Martinez has been one of the top run-producers in the American League the past four seasons -- and he had some success in the 1995 and '97 Division Series -- but he has just one RBI in 74 career at-bats in the league championship series and World Series.

When he took over from brother Bryan as coach of the Washington Capitals in midseason five years ago, Terry Murray realized almost instant success and the team went further than it ever had in postseason play.Even though the players knew Terry well, his having served as Bryan's assistant for years, a new spirit seemed to infect the club.The next year, pretty much the same thing happened in New Jersey, where Jim Schoenfeld was brought in to handle the Devils. The lads from Exit 16W on the New Jersey Turnpike, a perennial and unnoticed also-ran, not only made the playoffs, they set a team record for advancement, eliminating the Caps in the process.

It took him 13 years, but Nevada-Las Vegas basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian finally won one from the NCAA. As a result, his Rebels are now eligible to defend the national title they so impressively won last April.That news came in a report from the NCAA Committee on Infractions, which just last July -- acting on a case that stretched back to 1977 -- prohibited Vegas from postseason play in 1991. In yesterday's landmark reversal, it agreed to permit UNLV to play in next spring's tourney if the school accepted one of two alternative penalties.

He finished with 82 yards on 19 carries.Williams' 3-yard run in the first quarter helped the Clippers (6-0)
