A nor'easter appears poised to rumble over Maryland next week, as residents on the state's eastern and western edges are still shoveling out snow and sand from this week's massive storm. The nor'easter could swoop across the state as early as Wednesday, spilling an inch or two of rain and pushing seawater onto a coastline already saturated by Sandy, a hurricane turned post-tropical cyclone. "If we didn't just have Sandy, we'd probably still be talking about the chance of minor coastal flooding," said Kristina Pydynowski, a senior meteorologist with Accuweather.

Duane Simpkins, who played point guard at Maryland from 1992 through 1995, will join Pat Skerry's new staff at Towson University as director of basketball operations. "He's a bright guy, a young coach who is connected to the area," Skerry said Friday. "He'll be a good example for the guys of what it takes to be a successful student. " Simpkins had been head coach at St. Albans, an all-boys school in Washington, the past four years. He also coached two years at Sidwell Friends School in Washington.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Getting yelled at never sounded better to Duane Simpkins."It meant things were back to normal," he said, smiling. "There's no doubt we needed it as a team."The yelling occurred in the Maryland Terrapins' first two NCAA tournament games last weekend in Salt Lake City. Terps coach Gary Williams repeatedly chewed out Simpkins from the sidelines, as he always does.Simpkins' blistered ears were the surest sign yet that Williams had recovered from his recent bout with pneumonia and was ready to become the Terps' emotional fuse again.

He had not practiced with the team the previous two days because of his illness.Simpkins said he grew dizzy and "was trying to signal somebody help me off the court" when Keith Booth went to the foul line for two free throws with 20 seconds left.

LANDOVER -- Can one shot make a point guard? Duane Simpkins thinks so. Gary Williams hopes so. And the fate of Maryland's season might depend on the answer.It was only one game, only the season opener, but what a game, what an upset, what a gutsy, storybook shot.First, the Maryland sophomore drove past Georgetown senior Joey Brown, who torched him in a summer-league game before last season and dissed him with an elbow in the ribs in the second half.Then, he lofted a left-handed layup over the outstretched fingers of 6-foot-8 forward Don Reid, who shook his head and smiled later when asked how close he came to making the game-saving block.

Simpkins picked himself up slowly, and started his long walk out of the Baltimore Arena.He didn't make it out of the locker room.He ducked into an open coat closet, threw down his can of juice and burst into tears."C'mon 'D,' you'll be all right," teammate Keith Booth said as Simpkins bent over sobbing in a corner of the closet.

COLLEGE PARK - The fun came last night, when the Maryland Terrapins looked and acted like any other big-time college basketball team opening its season amid so much pomp and promise. The games won't start for another month. The reality begins today, when the Terps start practicing for a season in which most predictions range between lousy and just plain long. One thing is for sure: The Terps will go with a smaller lineup than they've had in a while. "I think we can be a pretty quick team this year, so you want to play at a quick level," Maryland coach Gary Williams said after Maryland Madness festivities for the men's and women's teams ended at Comcast Center.

Heck, the kids once played against each other in a city championship game.

WICHITA, Kan. -- The formula for winning NCAA tournament games isn't as complicated as the hoop doctors would have you believe. You have a chance to get hot in the Big Jalapeno, or whatever we're calling it, as long as you have two items: a big man and a point guard.Consider Maryland's first-round win over Saint Louis. Sensational Freshman Joe Smith was -- what else? -- sensational, but the Terps also needed a career game from Duane Simpkins to keep from losing.The sophomore point guard missed four of seven shots and scored only seven points, so it doesn't sound like his best game, especially when he had a couple of 18-pointers during the season.
