ROCK HILL, S.C. -- The look on Bonnie Rimkus' face said it all.Rimkus, the fulcrum of the Maryland women's basketball team throughout this up-and-down season, saw the Terps and herself hit bottom yesterday in a dismal 63-45 loss to No. 8 Virginia in the semifinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.The Terps (15-13) suffered their worst loss in the 17-year history of the tournament and had the third-worst offensive output by a team in the ACC championships.And Rimkus, the league's No. 2 regular-season scorer, a first-team All-ACC choice and an All-America candidate, was held scoreless, the first time that's happened since Feb. 18, 1993.

COLLEGE PARK -- The regimen has become routine for Bonnie Rimkus.Every day before the Maryland women's basketball team practices, Rimkus hops onto one of the padded tables and waits for Phyllis Sanders, Maryland's assistant athletic trainer, to connect a heating pad and a muscle stimulater to her back.The treatments last for only 15 to 20 minutes, but they've been going on for weeks now and show no signs of ending soon."I strained it a little bit during preseason. I don't need any time off, but she [Sanders]

COLLEGE PARK -- The Maryland women's basketball team needed somebody new this season to shoot from the outside. The Terps found that somebody -- and they had to look no farther than near the basket.Bonnie Rimkus, a 6-foot-4 junior forward, was moved out to the wings, and the move has paid off for Rimkus and Maryland."I've always had confidence in my shooting. I've always worked on my shooting, because that's all I've ever done: shoot, shoot, shoot," said Rimkus.The Terps are ranked third in this week's Associated Press poll.

Before yesterday, Maryland forward Bonnie Rimkus had onl been a tourist in Charm City, but if her future visits are as satisfying as last night, she'll probably want to play here more often.Rimkus scored a career-high 30 points and pulled down 15 rebounds in leading the sixth-ranked Terps (5-1) to a 75-44 pasting of Loyola (3-5) at Reitz Arena.Rimkus, a 6-foot-4 junior from Pittsburgh, was brilliant both out on the perimeter, with long-range jumpers, including her second career three-pointer, and inside, controlling the boards and blocking two shots.

COLLEGE PARK -- In one respect, the North Carolina State women's basketball team achieved some measure of success against Maryland last night.The Wolfpack managed to hold center Jessie Hicks more than 16 points below her average of 18.6.But that was the extent of the N.C. State highlights, as the No. 8 Terps pounded out a 92-52 victory over the Wolfpack before 3,476, the fifth-largest crowd to see a Maryland women's game at Cole Field House.The 40-point drubbing was the worst administered by a Marylandteam to an Atlantic Coast Conference opponent in 15 years of league play, surpassing a 100-64 win over Duke in 1988-89, the last season the Terps went to the Final Four.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- It was the Maryland women's basketball team's most lopsided loss to North Carolina in the 36-game series history.Not even senior forward Bonnie Rimkus' 38 points could ease the sting of a 106-76 drubbing by the No. 5 Tar Heels before 4,106 at Carmichael Auditorium yesterday.With the loss, Maryland falls to 13-10. The Terps are 7-6 in the Atlantic Coast Conference, tied with Duke for fourth place and 2 1/2 games behind third-place Clemson."I don't know what to say after a game like that," Terps head coach Chris Weller said.

COLLEGE PARK -- Three weeks ago, the Maryland women's basketball team was struggling.The Terps hadn't beaten any of their ranked opponents, and they had failed to erase any of their second-half deficits.But, as their 64-55 victory last night over 17th-ranked Rutgers demonstrated, the Terps appear to be a different team, resilient and full of confidence, with a boost from Bonnie Rimkus.The 6-foot-4 All-America candidate bounced back from a couple of recent sub-par performances with 20 points and eight rebounds in 28 minutes.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Maryland entered last night as the last women's basketball team to beat Virginia on its home court, and the Terrapins retain the honor. But that last loss was two years ago.Jeffra Gausepohl, a 6-foot-6 center who helped Virginia beat the Terrapins in last year's ACC title game, scored a career-high 29 points last night, as the 12th-ranked Cavaliers beat the Terps, 68-56, for their 34th straight win at University Hall.Even though it was held to a season-low 18 points in the first half, Maryland (8-6, 3-2)
