Among the many enticing concerts vying for your attention this weekend, here are two to consider. Tomorrow, the Santa Fe Guitar Quartet will bring its collective talents to Baltimore in a program that ranges from J. S. Bach and Bela Bartok to Isaac Albeniz and Astor Piazzolla. Named for the city in Argentina, the ensemble began making a name for itself in 1989 by combining classical repertoire with both classical and folk music of Latin America. There has been a particular emphasis on the tango-based works by the late Piazzolla, whose vibrant scores have helped bring the dance form back to the fore.

Former Navy star Billy Hurley III , who had a two-shot lead after three rounds in the Greenbrier Classic, shot a 3-over-par 73 in the final round Sunday and fell to a seven-way tie for fourth at 9-under 271. Hurley took the lead in the second round and shot a 3-under 67 in the third round to extend his lead over Argentina's Angel Cabrera . But Hurley bogeyed four of the first six holes in the final round to fall out of contention for his first...

Since Maryland has not been known this season for aggressive post play, I think we all anticipated what would happen when you matched the Terps against long, athletic Tyler Zeller and John Henson. Factor in that Zeller was playing his final home game in front of a loud, adoring Senior Night crowd. It didn't take Dr. James Naismith to figure out what would transpire. I said in my updated game story that the dominant sound at Smith Center was that of Maryland beiing whistled for fouls on Zeller.

Maryland came to the Smith Center hoping to be more than a mere afterthought for a North Carolina team whose fans couldn't help but look ahead excitedly to the Tar Heels' rematch with Duke on Saturday. While the sixth-ranked Tar Heels and the fourth-ranked Blue Devils will play for the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season title, the Terps were playing for something less tangible Wednesday night. Eager for redemption after their recent road struggles, the Terps instead fell victim to turnovers, foul trouble and North Carolina's frontcourt size in an 88-64 Tar Heels victory.

College Park -- Until last season, Maryland men's basketball coach Gary Williams had taken his Terrapins to Chapel Hill every year since returning to his alma mater in 1989, and during that period had fared better than any coach in the Atlantic Coast Conference not named Mike Krzyzewski. The odds have often been against Maryland at the Smith Center - OK, the Dean Dome - but none bigger than they might be today.

Audiences at Maryland's newest arts center this spring will quite literally have a chance to see theater in the making. Or should that be theaters? With six major venues under one roof and extensive rehearsal and teaching space, the $130 million Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center is one of the most complicated projects of its kind in the country -- part teaching laboratory for the University of Maryland, College Park, and part professional arts center...

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- On a day when North Carolina's favorite son ended his singular basketball career, Maryland's veterans made history of their own on the Tar Heels' turf. Obinna Ekezie, Laron Profit and Terrell Stokes joined a select group last night, when No. 5 Maryland beat No. 9 North Carolina, 89-76, before 21,572 at the Smith Center. The Terps overcame severe front-line foul trouble with a 3-2 zone and used a 12-2 spurt to turn a tenuous 67-63 lead into a romp. It was Maryland's third win in its past four trips to North Carolina, and the hat trick for the seniors was something that had been accomplished only by other Tobacco Road rivals, and then only once since 1963.

Frances Kitching is probably Smith Island's most famous cook. She's been making crab cakes, corn pudding and coconut cakes for "a-many a year" in the tiny eastern Chesapeake Bay community.But even she can't say what drives the islanders to make their famous 10-layer cakes. At a time when most "homemade" cakes consist of two fat layers stuck together with creamy icing scooped from a store-bought tub, Smith Island cake stands alone.Uncut, it looks like any other cake. Removing the first slice reveals an impressive arrangement of 10 quarter-inch-thick layers with just enough chocolate icing to hold it all together.

Following his team's 81-57 loss to No. 21 North Carolina on Sunday afternoon, Maryland senior forward Travis Garrison stood in the middle of the visiting team locker room at the Dean Smith Center and shouldered some of the blame for his team's continuously diminishing chances of receiving a bid to the NCAA tournament. A comeback this late in the season isn't impossible, but with the way the Terps have been playing recently, it seems improbable.

Maryland can do more than knock off North Carolina tonight at the Smith Center in Chapel Hill. The Terps can also slay a couple of psychological dragons.One is new, No. 5 Maryland coming to grips with the demands of life as a marked team after more than a decade as an upstart. The other is getting old, the difficulty the Terps have had winning big games on an opponent's court."I've always felt that the greatest wins are the ones on the road, against a good team," said Terps coach Gary Williams, whose team has lost five straight on the courts of Top 25 foes.
