Within the last year, Seth Allen has broken bones in his left hand and left foot. Before that, he broke the same hand during his senior year of high school. And then there were the two plates and 24 screws inserted in his left elbow as the result of a 2007 bicycle accident that left a 7-inch scar winding down the underside of his forearm. Unfortunate as his history has been, the setbacks have toughened the Maryland point guard's psyche and taught him about the hard work required for a speedy recovery.

With his 16th win in hand and the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament still ahead of him, Maryland coach Gary Williams felt like a man who had won a reprieve late Monday night.In his season of endless tribulation, Williams figured the Terps finally assured themselves of an NCAA tournament bid by beating Florida State."I think tying Duke for fourth in the ACC regular season gets us there," he said. "It's hard to take Duke without taking us. We're both 8-8 in the league."Hard, maybe, but not impossible.

Stephen Curry grew up playing basketball in North Carolina, the heart of the Atlantic Coast Conference, where he was raised by NBA sharpshooter Dell Curry and trained with a longtime NBA strength and conditioning coach. He learned the game from his father, a first-round draft pick, and played pickup games with stars like Muggsy Bogues. None of it mattered. Because at 5 feet 9, 140 pounds in high school, the baby-faced Curry was a self-described "scrawny little short kid" - a lanky point guard who couldn't get the attention of major colleges, no matter who his father was. Virginia Tech - where his father was an All-American and his mother, Sonya, played volleyball - was the only major-conference school that showed interest, but the best Hokies coach Seth Greenberg could offer was a spot as a walk-on.

For five days last month, Bryan Harris had found everything he wanted in a college basketball program. Harris, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound combo guard, graduated from Southern in 2011 with no Division I scholarship offers. But a standout post-grad season with Massanutten Military Academy in Virginia earned him several DI offers, including one from Duquesne, which he accepted May 18 . Harris' happiness, however, proved to be fleeting. On May 23, Duquesne fired coach Ron Everhart , leaving Harris' status as a Dukes commitment utterly uncertain.

Over the past two years, Bryan Harris graduated from Southern High, completed a successful post-grad year at Massanutten (Va.) Military Academy, committed to Duquesne, parted ways with the Dukes after their coach was fired, signed with Wofford and then returned home to Maryland after the first semester of his freshman year.   “It seems like every day I'm waiting for something else to happen. It's been a crazy process the last few years,” Harris said. “Everything is finally set now. I can just focus on school and basketball.” The focus now for Harris, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound point guard, will be playing basketball and studying computer science at UMBC.

RALEIGH, N.C. - It was neither football nor basketball season, but college athletics was very much in the news. Seven schools were bolting one conference and preparing to form another. The college sports landscape was in the midst of a highly publicized shake-up. It was the spring of 1953. The name of the new league was the Atlantic Coast Conference. Sixty years ago, Maryland was among seven schools to leave the Southern Conference and gamble that the new league would succeed On Saturday, Maryland plays it last football game in the ACC, a conference born from, and shaped by, realignment.

Think Duke is off its game in recent years? It's not alone. Its entire conference is not feeling the Madness these days, either. Feeling mad, yes, because for the second time in three years, the NCAA tournament began with the hallowed Atlantic Coast Conference carrying a chip on its shoulder, beefing about being disrespected, griping that it's under-represented in the 65-team field. And, once again, most of its smaller-than-usual contingent are leaving without getting their dance cards punched.
