First, here's a quote that could make Terps fans gleeful. It came from Pe'Shon Howard after he was asked about 7-1 center Alex Len becoming available for the first time this coming Wednesday night against Albany. “I can't really put into words the difference he'll make,” Howard said. Now back to Maryland's five-point escape against Radford. On an off shooting night by the Terps (36.8 percent from the floot, 62.5 percent on free throws), Maryland won by holding the Highlanders to four field goals in the second half.

Scott Mitchell South River, senior, pitcher-infielder To say Mitchell contributed to South River's first state championship would be an understatement. Mitchell led the No. 2 Seahawks (20-5) to a 6-0 win over No. 7 Catonsville in the Class 4A state championship game at Ripken Stadium, pitching a two-hitter. He held the Comets hitless until the sixth inning, striking out nine batters in the victory. Offensively, Mitchell had two doubles, two RBIs and a stolen base.

COLLEGE PARK - Just a few minutes had elapsed when Maryland coach Mark Turgeon's holiday present emerged from the bench, stretched and entered the game. It took Pe'Shon Howard - the injured point guard whose return was eagerly awaited by Turgeon - all of four seconds to dish out his first deft pass of the season. But while Turgeon hopes Howard will be the gift that keeps on giving - he had seven points and three assists Friday night - Maryland struggled before defeating Radford, 65-60.

Maryland's injured and sorely missed point guard, Pe'Shon Howard, will return ahead of schedule and plans to play Friday night against Radford at Comcast Center. Howard's broken left foot healed quicker than expected. The sophomore — an important component of Maryland's ball movement, depth and defense — had originally looked at a January return or even a redshirt season. "We are a different team," Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said Thursday in announcing that Howard, injured before the season, would return Friday night.

When Turgeon was asked by a reporter for The Diamondback at his regular pre-game news conference Tuesday about Howard's announcement, he wanted to know if the news had come out via Twitter.

It took shipyard workers 38 months to build the Arthur W. Radford, but only four hours Wednesday for a marine salvage crew to send it to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. With little of the drama depicted in maritime disaster movies, the 563-foot former Navy destroyer settled low as seawater poured into its depths and then disappeared stern-first off the coast of Maryland to create the East Coast's largest artificial reef. The reef, called Del-Jersey-Land for the three states involved in the project, is roughly 28 miles northeast of Ocean City Inlet and about equidistant from Indian River Inlet andCape May. Tourism and natural resources officials for Delaware, New Jersey and Maryland believe the Radford will attract deep-sea fishing charters and divers eager to explore its nooks and crannies.

With almost every regulatory hurdle cleared, planners believe they are about two weeks away from sinking a 563-foot former Navy destroyer off the coast of Maryland to create the largest artificial reef on the Eastern Seaboard. The Arthur W. Radford, docked in Philadelphia, is nearing the end of a laborious effort to remove all salvageable and toxic material and pass inspection by federal environmental and maritime safety officials, Erik Zlokovitz, artificial reef coordinator for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources told a state fisheries advisory commission Tuesday night.

Plans to sink the former destroyer USS Arthur W. Radford off the Maryland coast this spring to serve as a fish reef will apparently not be affected by the Navy's decision to recycle, rather than sink, four other retired warships. Environmental officials in Delaware said they still plan to sink the 563-foot former Navy destroyer in about 135 feet of water, 30 miles off the coast. Maryland and New Jersey are partners in the project. It would be the longest vessel ever converted for use as an offshore reef on the East Coast.
