The Orioles' sixth-round pick, Samford left-hander Lex Rutledge, is a very intriguing selection. Rutledge, ranked the No. 148 prospect by Baseball America, has a fastball that has peaked at 97-98 mph in the Cape Cod League but sits more at 91-93. That fastball on its own from a left-hander makes Rutledge interesting. Reports also say he owns one of the better curveballs in the entire draft field, a hard breaking pitch that is in the 79-83 mph range. But Rutlege has suffered from control problems.

The perception of what constitutes a good shot is often viewed differently by basketball players and coaches. A player might believe that a good shot is one that goes in, while a coach feels that it is one taken within the context of the team's offense. Then there's Maryland freshman guard Nick Faust, who seems aware that some of his shots are ill-advised but remains undeterred about launching 3s that could have first-year coach Mark Turgeon looking down his bench for a sub to replace the former City star.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- It didn't seem to matter to Morgan State coach Stump Mitchell that his team had just outgained Samford by 132 total net yards.What interested -- or rather, irritated -- him most was another set of statistics in the Bears' 13-12 loss to the Bulldogs yesterday."

ORLANDO, Fla. -- An NCAA reprieve and tradition weren't enough to carry Louisville yesterday.The seventh-seeded Cardinals blew a halftime lead for only the third time this season and watched their chance for a meeting with Maryland disintegrate in a 62-58 upset loss to Creighton before 10,032 fans in the first round of the South Regional.Louisville (19-11) had a 40-27 advantage and the game in control with 16 minutes remaining when Bluejays coach Dana Altman pulled the master stroke, shifting into a zone press, then backing his team into a matchup defense after the Cardinals had crossed half court.

It's been interesting to watch this year's Maryland team unfold under first-year coach Mark Turgeon I agree with his assessment that it's actually been three teams - the one that played the first nine games without Pe'Shon Howard and Alex Len, the one that played against Radford with Howard but without Len, and the one that played the last two games with the pass-first sophomore point guard and the 7-foot-1 freshman center. Here are some things to consider as the Terps go forward, with their Atlantic Coast Conference season about to start a week from Sunday at North Carolina State after what should be a more than competitive warmup against Cornell Tuesday.

Mark Turgeon finally got a chance to do something he has been waiting for in his first season at Maryland. It came late in Saturday's 75-63 win over Samford when Turgeon motioned to the end of his bench for the walk-ons to go in. Though the final margin wasn't indicative of Maryland's first blowout under Turgeon, the outcome was hardly in doubt. The Terps led by 16 points late in the first half and went ahead as many as 21 in the second half -- the first time they had been up this year by as many as 20 points.
