Baltimore Sun reporter Jeff Barker's latest notes on the Terps heading into tomorrow's NCAA tournament first-round game against Houston. I arrived in Spokane yesterday. Saw the Terps milling around the team hotel in their sweat suits. They looked only a little sleepy (it was about 8:30 in the evening in Spokane, which means 11:30 ET). I don't see jet lag being much of a factor in Friday night's opening-round NCAA tournament game against Houston. These are college kids, after all, and the effect is negligible.

Dr. Donald A. Morrison, a retired orthopedic surgeon who had been a partner with Towson Orthopaedic Associates, died Oct. 6 of complications from dementia at Arden Courts of Towson. The longtime Lutherville resident was 82. The son of Allan A. Morrison, a mining engineer, and Ruth Stevens Morrison, a homemaker, Donald Allan Morrison was born in Spokane, Wash., and spent his early years in Helena, Mont. With the coming of World War II, his family returned to Spokane when his father was hired as an executive at Alcoa Aluminum Co. They later moved to Portland, Ore., where Dr. Morrison graduated in 1950 from Ulysses S. Grant High School.

SPOKANE, Wash. -- On a ridge overlooking Spokane Valley, Jim Frank is selling houses almost as fast as he can build them. Here, amid tall stands of Ponderosa pine and honey-colored fields, it's easy to imagine how the area used to be in the late 19th century when it was a train stop between Seattle and Minneapolis.Certainly, Spokane, 280 miles east of Seattle and just a few miles from the Idaho border, is off the beaten track and isolated from major metropolitan areas. But enough people have discovered it to give Mr. Frank a place in what the National Association of Realtors says is one of the fastest-appreciating housing markets in the nation.

SPOKANE, Wash. -- Not so long ago, two years to be precise, Maryland entered an NCAA tournament regional semifinal played in the West. The Terps were full of youth and spunk but largely unknown to the rest of the women's basketball world, but made their mark then by taking out the defending national champion, Baylor, on the way to their own title. Two years later, Maryland again goes west for a Sweet 16 game, this time at the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena. But this time it is not a group of callow kids but rather well-worn veterans trying to regain their status against a scrappy Vanderbilt team looking to make its name in the game by taking out a heavyweight.

The Terps left yesterday for Spokane, Wash. It became real when I saw Adrian Bowie wheeling his luggage to the bus at Comcast Center. Let the games begin. Actually, Maryland doesn't play until Friday night, as you know. The Terps will get some practice time out there and try to use the extra day to adjust to the different time zone. The team has talked a lot about how many 3-pointers Houston attempts. The Cougars sometimes play four guards at once. Ever seen that before? Oh yes, the Terps have done it on occasion as well in the past few seasons, although three guards is more typical.

Few people yearn to attend the NCAA men's basketball tournament as much as Dino Gregory Sr. It's not only that the Baltimore police officer is a fan and former college player. It's that his son, also named Dino, will be playing for Maryland when the Terrapins begin the tournament Friday night, some 2,475 miles away in Spokane, Wash. But like many frustrated fans, Gregory will be watching on television when the game tips off. "I can't afford it, man. Nobody wants to be at the game more than me," he said.

Selection Sunday was a little more subdued, but no less satisfying, for the Maryland and Morgan State men's basketball teams going to the NCAA tournament for the second straight year. A year ago, Maryland boosted its chances of going to the NCAA tournament by winning back-to-back games in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, but still was nervous about the bid until seeing its name pop up on the television screen. This year, the mind-set was markedly different as the Terps watched together at Comcast Center.

The Maryland Terrapins wore red T-shirts and solemn expressions Sunday after learning that they would be a No. 4 seed in the NCAA men's tournament and would play Friday night in Spokane, Wash., against a Houston team that has a mediocre win-loss record but also the nation's leading scorer in Aubrey Coleman. Facing the media Sunday night, it was as if the Terrapins had already begun preparing themselves emotionally for the task of playing in college basketball's marquee event. Unlike last season - when their entrance into the tournament was met with glee - the Terps appeared more resolute than celebratory.
