COLLEGE PARK -- Terrell Stokes has maturity beyond his 20 years, a level of confidence that abuts on cocky, and a style of play crafted on the playgrounds of Philadelphia.For Maryland's precocious point guard, "freshman" is simply a misnomer.Yet that is precisely what he is. A first-year college player. Happily for the Terps, Stokes is one of the most promising newcomers in a season when freshmen flourish around the Atlantic Coast Conference.Several of them will be on display at Cole Field House tonight when Maryland (8-6, 1-3)

"Bill Spotts," says Lake Clifton High coach Charlie Moore jokingly, "has become the Don King of basketball."There's an element of truth in that. Spotts, a Baltimore insurance man, has become the top promoter of hoops in our town -- just as King has long been the world's pre-eminent promoter of boxing.But King has been known to stage an occasional turkey. Spotts delivers what he promises.A year ago, when Spotts put on the first Charm City Classic at the Towson Center, he said several of the best teams in the country were in the field.

Until this season, Southern of Baltimore has failed to gain recognition in the national rankings. One of the reasons was a 0-3 mark in the Charm City Classic.And even though the Bulldogs have the No. 4 ranking in USA Today, there was still questions about them going into last night's game with Simon Gratz of Philadelphia, the nation's No. 6 team.The Bulldogs silenced those critics with a 74-68 victory over the defending national champions in a Northwest bracket game, before a sellout crowd of more than 3,000 at Loyola College's Reitz Arena.

It was one of those indelible images left from last year's Atlantic Coast Conference title game. There was Rasheed Wallace, writhing in pain on the floor, screaming at the top of his lungs after injuring himself in a North Carolina loss to Wake Forest.To watch him, you would have thought Wallace had broken an ankle, or suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament. The injury wound up being a "mild to moderate" sprain of the left ankle. To some, it reinforced an image Wallace had gained in two years with the Tar Heels: that of a whiner who lacked toughness.
