Dez Wells took pride in wearing No. 32 during his first two years at Maryland, becoming only the second Terp to take the number in the nearly 20 years since former star Joe Smith left College Park as the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft. Going into his senior year, Wells will finally get a chance to do something he's been thinking about since high school - wear No. 44 to honor the memory of a former Amateur Athletic Union teammate who was killed in a 2010 car crash. Though he is still listed as No. 32 on the Maryland roster, Wells said Friday that he planned to make the switch for the team's first season in the Big Ten. As members of the Winston-Salem, N.C.-based CP3 All-Stars, Wells and Detrique Baker, a skinny 6-foot-9 center who had moved to Raleigh from Texas while in high school, talked about playing college basketball together.

In court documents, Maryland has argued that, as an extension of the state, it has sovereign immunity shielding it from lawsuits such as the ACC's.

Maryland had just encountered its first bit of adversity of the young basketball season - its second straight conference defeat - and Dez Wells looked crestfallen. The swingman wore a faraway stare as he talked in a monotone to the media about Maryland's 54-47 loss to Miami on Sunday night, about his two charging fouls, and about needing to "look in the mirror" to see if there is more he can do for the team. "We just can't make a freaking shot," a still-frustrated Wells said Tuesday as the Terps (13-3, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference)

"Journey's End," R.C. Sherriff's often-revived play from 1928, is set in the trenches of World War I. Focusing on a British infantry unit, where class distinctions are neatly maintained and personal battles can be intense inside the dugout, this incisive work largely avoids cliché and contrivance, even when dealing with the inevitable deaths. Fells Point Corner Theatre's staging of "Journey's End" reflects well on the company (and reaffirms the value of community theater)
