COLLEGE PARK -- The stat line was respectable: 11 points, eight rebounds and a blocked shot in 41 minutes of Maryland's overtime victory over No. 5 Virginia at Comcast Center. That it came collectively from sophomores Charles Mitchell and Shaquille Cleare might make it seem a little less impressive, but Terps coach Mark Turgeon was certainly pleased with the play of his big men. Cleare's contribution of five points, five rebounds and the blocked shot in a season-high 26 minutes off the bench might be thought of as a flicker rather than a spark, but it signals that the 6-foot-9, 270-pound center still might turn things around after a disappointing start to his college career.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on three topics from the past week in Maryland sports. What do you expect when Maryland hosts No. 1 Syracuse on Monday night in its biggest home game of the season? Jeff Barker: With no Duke or North Carolina on the home schedule this season, this is the game Terps fans have been aiming for. It's been sold out for some time. At least once a season, Maryland fans need a chance to really make some noise.

"His big mouth could work stateside selling toothpaste or mouthwash." Bob Dorfman Advertising expert, on endorsement opportunities for Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen "Shaq can play defense without playing defense. Say you're an off guard and the ball's in your hands and you feel you can take your man off the dribble. But you see [O'Neal] waiting under the basket. Mentally, he just played defense on you."

Obesity is the reality show world's cause du jour since overweight people, it seems, make for good TV. We've already had NBC's Biggest Loser, TLC's Honey We're Killing the Kids! and Big Medicine, and VH1's Celebrity Fit Club. Coming later this summer is ABC's Fat March, in which contestants lose weight by walking hundreds of miles along the East Coast.

Acres had four points, five rebounds and a block."I guess it was just my luck of the draw," said Acres, who made his first start at Orlando Arena against his former mates.

Maryland center Shaquille Cleare is aware of the criticism leveled against him from fans and media during the first two months of his sophomore year -- maybe to the point where it affected his play. Cleare, who was used sparingly behind Alex Len as a freshman, had one of his more solid performances in Saturday's 77-61 victory over Georgia Tech in Maryland's Atlantic Coast Conference home opener at Comcast Center. His numbers weren't spectacular -- eight points, two rebounds and an assist in 19 minutes -- but his impact was apparent.

You might think that major-college basketball players become immune to criticism over time. They play on such a public stage, after all. I was thinking about that as I listened to Maryland sophomore Shaquille Cleare talk to reporters after scoring 10 points (on 5-for-7 shooting) after the 66-62 victory over Florida Atlantic . Cleare had played arguably his best game of the year. But he seemed a little burdened by previous criticism. It had seemed to wear on him. Or maybe it was Cleare being his own worst critic.

ST. THOMAS, Virgin Islands -- Charles Mitchell is admittedly a little biased when it comes to Maryland teammate Shaquille Cleare, but the sophomore forward who seems to be ready every game insists that Terps fans have yet to see the real Shaq, who has yet to look like a player that can be a significant contributor. “He's a great low-post scorer,” Mitchell said of Cleare earlier this week. “Him scoring in the low post like he should be this season, he will be during the season, will open up more on the wing for Jake [Layman]

Shaquille Cleare and Charles Mitchell have been best friends since coming up for the Capital Classic before their freshman year at Maryland and have roomed together since coming to College Park a few months later. That makes things a little tricky if Cleare continues to struggle and Mitchell continues to blossom. The highest-ranked player in last year's freshman class, Cleare sat behind Alex Len at center as a freshman while Mitchell, not nearly as touted coming out of high school, got more time at power forward.

The Maryland basketball team held an open scrimmage Saturday without head coach Mark Turgeon, who was home with strep throat. Assistant coach Scott Spinelli ran the practice portion that wasn't open to the public, then let fellow assistants Bino Ranson and Dalonte Hill coach after they split up the teams. For those planning their ACC fantasy league teams, Jake Layman continues to show signs that he could take a major step from his freshman year. The 6-foot-8 forward led the Red Team to a 38-36 win in the 20-minute scrimmage with 20 points.

For most of Mark Turgeon's first two seasons at Maryland, the focus has been on the lack of a true point guard and the problems he and the Terps have encountered as a result. As the third-year coach gets his team ready for the start of the 2013-14 season in a little less than a month, the focus has changed. It has gone from the perimeter to the paint, from point guard to center. Despite the departure of Alex Len to the NBA after his sophomore year, Turgeon said Tuesday that he is leaning toward again using a traditional back-to-the-basket big man rather than being part of a trend to, as they say, go small.

It looks as if Shaquille O'Neal is headed to the Miami Heat. Is Michael Jordan next? Jordan, according to a source with knowledge of the situation, has been in discussions with Heat ownership about joining the organization as an owner. Although there was no other confirmation, it makes sense for both Jordan and NBA commissioner David Stern. Stern has been trying to get Jordan back into the NBA in an ownership position since Jordan's attempt to buy the Milwaukee Bucks failed last year.

The 1950s and '60s in pro basketball were dominated by two powerful centers -- George Mikan and Wilt Chamberlain, who, by brute force and intimidation, convinced general managers and coaches that the quickest way to a championship was finding a big man in their image.In time, this thinking changed with the arrival of finesse centers such as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Walton and David Robinson. Then multifaceted players such as Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Michael Jordan proved a team could win titles without a monster in the middle.

Freshman center Shaquille Cleare will get his second career start when the Terps take on Miami on Sunday night in Coral Gables, Fla. Maryland will employ Cleare in a big lineup with 7-footer Alex Len, coach Mark Turgeon said today. Len will play power forward with Cleare at center. "That's a big '4,' " Cleare said of Len. "It's going to be kind of scary. I think it's going to be a great lineup. " Regular starters Nick Faust and Dez Wells are also likely to open the game, and Turgeon said he's still deciding on his point guard.

With 20 points and 11 rebounds over the past two games, Maryland freshman Shaquille Cleare seems to be emerging. The heralded freshman is beginning to find his way.   “You see it in practice first. He was getting better in practice,” coach Mark Turgeon said today before the Terps (8-1) practiced for tomorrow night's game against Monmouth (5-5). “He didn't get any chance against George Mason. In the last two games, he's had a chance. I'm happy for him. He's a good kid. " Cleare is 6-9 and weighs about 265 pounds.
