COLLEGE PARK - If Gary Williams had foreseen that Travis Garrison and Ekene Ibekwe would have responded this well to a seat on the bench, he might have yanked them from his first five in December. Four nights after they came off the bench at Duke, Maryland's most experienced big men delivered another pair of clutch performances. In Durham, N.C., their free throws sealed what appears to be a season-turning win. Last night against Georgia Tech, Garrison and Ibekwe gave the Terps the inside presence they've been lacking.

Despite a furious fourth-quarter rally by Howard, South Carroll saddled the visiting Lions with their first loss of the season last night, 62-59.Aggressive rebounding and scrappy defense allowed the hosts to pounce on Howard (3-1) early, and the Cavaliers (3-1) forged ahead by as much as 45-22 midway through the third quarter. However, it was a lack of the skills they used to grab their substantial lead that nearly came back to haunt them.From the beginning of the fourth quarter until a turnaround basket by Molly Cage with 1 minute, 30 seconds left made the score 59-53, Howard outscored its opponent, 19-6, including four points in less than 30 seconds from forward Mona Jackson (12 points, 10 rebounds)

The preferred saying might be to take it one game at a time, but there was no doubt that Loyola had a bit of payback on its mind yesterday when it faced Iona at Reitz Arena. Behind a dominant second half, the Greyhounds defeated the Gaels, 63-51, to gain a measure of revenge for their 24-point loss at Iona last month. "That was definitely part of the emotional factor today," said forward-center Michael Tuck, whose Greyhounds trailed by three points at halftime. "We just kind of came together as a team before the game and said to remember how it felt the last time we played them."

College Park -- Before the basketball season began, Maryland junior forward Ekene Ibekwe made a bet. He and his high school coach guessed how many double doubles Ibekwe would rack up this season. Closest one wins and the loser has to buy dinner. Turned out to be a smart bet for the coach. "[Ekene] would rather play basketball," his father, Augustine, said, "than eat food." In addition to his love for the game, Ibekwe has the rare combination of flexibility and quickness for his lanky 6-foot-9 frame.

LANDOVER -- On their recent Western swing, Washington Bullets assistant coaches Bill Blair and Jeff Bzdelik devilishly bought their troubled boss, Wes Unseld, a samurai sword as a pre-Christmas gift.Unseld might have been tempted to use it last night as a motivational tool after the Detroit Pistons handed his Bullets a fourth straight loss, 105-94, before an announced Capital Centre sellout of 18,756.The usually stoic coach, who has seldom criticized the effort of his injury-riddled team, openly questioned the commitment of some of his players for this atypical flat performance.
