Wes Unseld, who has watched his Washington Bullets lose four straight games since a surprising 2-0 start, has drawn up a shopping list for general manager John Nash, but an active, wide body remains his top priority.Save for a 105-88 blowout in Orlando by the Magic, which provides the opposition at the Capital Centre tonight, the Bullets have led in the fourth quarter before bowing to Philadelphia, Golden State and, most recently, Detroit.Their inability to score in a half-court offense during crunch timand the absence of a reliable outside shooter have been major factors in the losses.

At a time when the stability of Maryland's men's basketball program has been in question, Robert Carter may have provided the best form of support for embattled coach Mark Turgeon. The 6-foot-8, 247-pound power forward - considered one of the Atlantic Coast Conference's most promising big men before announcing plans to transfer - signed with the Terps on Friday. He then praised Turgeon for his vision and said he wasn't concerned about the fact that five scholarship players transferred from Maryland after the season “I feel like he's doing and they're doing what's best for the program,” Carter said of Turgeon, who just completed his third season at Maryland.

COLLEGE PARK - Two years ago, he made his mark as a backup shooting guard who possessed one of the best three-point shots on the team. Last year, he made an unorthodox switch to point guard, because the team needed help for Steve Blake. As for the coming season with Maryland, junior Drew Nicholas could find himself collecting additional playing time as part of a three-guard alignment coach Gary Williams is considering. That essentially would make Nicholas one of the backups to small forward Byron Mouton.

The Navy men's basketball team's 67-42 loss to Virginia Tuesday night was a showcase for two players moving in opposite directions. Junior shooting guard Brandon Venturini led the Midshipmen (2-3) with 15 points, including four three-pointers. He has scored at least 10 points in his last four contests and leads the team in scoring with 10.8 points per game. Venturini, who averaged 8.8 points per game and shot 34.7 percent (101-of-291) from the floor last season, is converting 45.7 percent (21-of-46)

COLLEGE PARK - For the Maryland Terrapins, today's 4 p.m. game against Wagner at the Comcast Center and Wednesday's game against Hampton precede a six-game stretch during which the 22nd-ranked Terps play only conference opponents. It just may be the perfect time for the Terps' power forward position to work itself out. With senior Tahj Holden, who was relatively quiet in his first seven games as a starter, away from the team during its Dec. 23 game against UMBC because of a death in his family, freshman Travis Garrison was inserted into the starting lineup.

Maryland lost the fourth starter from its NCAA champion men's basketball team yesterday when the school announced that sophomore forward Chris Wilcox will skip his final two years of college eligibility and enter the NBA draft. Wilcox, who informed Terrapins coach Gary Williams of his intentions on Sunday in College Park, was traveling home to Whiteville, N.C., yesterday and was unavailable to comment. Wilcox's decision, which had been expected since early this month, became official three weeks after he helped the Terps win their first national title with exceptional play in the Final Four, solidifying his position as an NBA lottery pick.

At 6 feet 7, 235 pounds, power forward Kevin McDuffie is built like something out of a Michelangelo work. McDuffie's chest sticks out about two inches more than his flat, hard stomach, and his shoulders are reminiscent of those on a linebacker. His powerful legs provide him with the jump he needs to grab the ball as it comes off the boards.But beneath his muscular exterior, McDuffie continues to be haunted by the sudden death of one of his closest childhood buddies, Reggie Lewis, the former Dunbar High and Boston Celtics star and McDuffie's Northeastern University teammate who collapsed and died of cardiac arrest last July.

Olajuwon has an array of moves that grounded league MVP David Robinson in the Western Conference finals. Doing the same against O'Neal will prove be tougher. The key for O'Neal will be to keep out of foul trouble.

Before his team began the Atlantic Coast Conference portion of its schedule earlier this month, Maryland coach Mark Turgeon begrudgingly acknowledged that the first three games could be pivotal for the Terps since the first two would be played at Comcast Center. What started well for Maryland - a 23-point win over Virginia Tech in College Park on Jan. 5 - has imploded since the second half of last Wednesday's game at home against Florida State. The Terps blew a double-digit first half to the Seminoles in a 65-62 loss.

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.

Just before Maryland took the floor against Wake Forest in the ACC tournament last month, Mark Turgeon landed a commitment from Charles Mitchell . And just after the Terps' win over the Demon Deacons, the first-year coach appeared to give a not-so-subtle - but totally legal per NCAA rules - shout-out to the four-star power forward. “This has been a great day - a great day - for Maryland basketball,” Turgeon said. “I can't talk about everything, but it's been a great day for us. " Mitchell, meanwhile, was relishing his new status as a Maryland-bound player.

People tease Deon Wingfield for staying in town to play basketball for Howard Community College.They think he could have played at a higher level. So they call him "The Mayor of Columbia."The former Wilde Lake All-County player, who graduated from there in 1993, is too good-natured and personable to take offense. He thinks that playing for Howard is one of the smartest moves he ever made."It's been a very good steppingstone. I've learned a lot about basketball and life and become much more disciplined on the court and in the classroom," Wingfield said.
