COLLEGE PARK -- After leading the Maryland women's basketball team in minutes in a very promising freshman season last year, Lillian Purvis saw her confidence and her playing time take a serious nose-dive last month.But an injury and a suspension have pushed Purvis and her jump shot back into the Maryland rotation, and she has made the most of her opportunities, especially in last night's 87-53 laugher over Iona.Purvis hit her first five shots on the way to 21 points to pace the Terps (9-7)

COLLEGE PARK -- With three games in the books, it's far too early to make judgments about the 1995-96 Maryland women's basketball team.But it's not too early to notice that the Terps have grown a little and learned a little from last year's nightmare season.Take last night's 58-54 win over Rutgers. Maryland surrendered a nine-point second-half lead and looked to be on the verge of squandering an eminently winnable game.But the Terps (2-1) shook off the jitters and outlasted Rutgers behind junior guard Lillian Purvis, who scored 21 points, including a key basket with 4:45 left to give Maryland a lead after the Knights had battled back to tie."

COLLEGE PARK -- It wasn't by accident that Maryland women's basketball coach Chris Weller had her charges watch tapes of former Terps teams before last night's game with No. 18 Clemson.Weller was gambling that some of the determination and grit from teams that won three Final Fours and eight Atlantic Coast Conference championships would filter through to the current crew.The gamble paid off as junior guard Lillian Purvis hit a layup at the buzzer to give the Terps a 74-72 upset win over the Tigers, Maryland's second straight home victory over a ranked opponent.

MILWAUKEE -- Quadrevion "Dre" Henning and Purvis Virginia Parker had spent most of Sunday morning playing outside, but they weren't ready to relax and watch television. So, a few hours before dark, they got permission from home to head for a northwest Milwaukee playground less than two blocks from their homes. Their families haven't seen them since. "It's like the children dissolved," Trevor Henning, Dre's uncle, said yesterday. "They just disappeared." After searching the area with dogs, divers and 150 volunteers for four days, police say they have no idea what happened to Dre, 12, or Purvis, 11. Without anything to go on, police are not calling the disappearance an abduction.

DURHAM, N.C. -- With just more than nine minutes to go, the Maryland women's basketball team seemed to have No. 20 Duke in a hammerlock on its floor with a seven-point lead and lots of momentum.From there, however, the Terps released their hold on the Blue Devils, going scoreless for more than seven minutes and dropping a 66-57 decision.In contrast to Friday's 10-point loss at No. 5 North Carolina, in which Maryland (15-7, 6-6 in the Atlantic Coast Conference) played an inspired game, the Terps played in a fog for the final quarter of the game yesterday, losing their third in a row -- all to ranked teams.
