PHILADELPHIA -- Lauren Centrowitz has done it all in her first three years at Stanford University. The Cardinal junior distance runner from Broadneck is a five-time NCAA All-American, a member of three NCAA gold-medal cross country teams, and a two-time Penn Relays titlist. But her pursuit of another crown in the distance medley at the 114th edition of the Penn Relays yesterday at Franklin Field wasn't to be. "I ran well but Nicole Edwards [anchoring for Michigan] and Sarah Bowman [of Tennessee]

SPOKANE, Wash. -- From the start of preseason in October, it was clear that the Maryland women's basketball team had learned lessons from its disastrous second-round loss to Mississippi in last year's NCAA tournament. The Terps valued the ball more, their execution was crisper and they remembered to get the ball inside to All-America second-team center Crystal Langhorne. In the end, however, their deepest flaw from the 2006-07 season, occasionally porous perimeter defense, doomed them in Monday's regional final.

SPOKANE, Wash. -- As if ordered up from room service, a montage of the Maryland women's basketball team's comeback win to beat Duke in the national championship game two years ago ran on the video scoreboard at the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena early in the second half last night, as the Terps trailed Stanford in their regional final. Rather than serve as inspiration, the clip proved to be a cruel reminder of happier days, as the Terps were unable to recreate the magic of Boston and lost to the Cardinal, 98-87.

SPOKANE, Wash.-- --Flourishing with offense and sinking with defense, the Maryland Terps came and the Maryland Terps went. One of their better performances of a promising season came when they needed it most. Despite their efforts, the best player the program has ever known went into the locker room at night's end to pack away her career, to pack away her team's national championship hopes. In a game that just as easily could have been played next week in Tampa, Fla., site of this year's Final Four, the top-seeded Terps were ousted from this year's NCAA tournament, 98-87, by Stanford, a No. 2 seed that is as capable as anyone of hoisting a trophy next week.

SPOKANE, Wash. -- As they approach tonight's Spokane Regional final and a possible berth in the women's NCAA Final Four, Maryland and Stanford, the top two seeds, bring to the contest virtual mirror images of each other. The Terps and the Cardinal enter the game with identical 33-3 records, strong inside-outside games, impressive performances in Saturday's regional semifinals and the requisite healthy respect for each other. Where the teams' opinions differ is on who should be wearing the white uniforms as the higher seed.

SPOKANE, Wash. -- She moves around the court with a frenetic energy. You can't help but watch her. Where Candice Wiggins is, the action is. And where the action is, she is. There was an NCAA tournament game last week in which Wiggins poured in 44 points. It was a career high, sure, but it was also the third most anyone had scored in an NCAA women's tournament game. After the game, she talked with her mom, Angie. "She's like, `When I watch you play, it just feels like I'm watching Alan,' " Candice Wiggins recalls.

About a week ago, conventional wisdom held that Maryland, coming off its loss to Duke in the semifinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference women's basketball tournament, would likely not get a No. 1 seed when the NCAA tournament field is announced tonight despite its 30-3 record. However, without having played in the past week, the No. 5 Terps might be back in top-seed contention, though getting that seed might come with a trip out West. Since Maryland lost to Duke, 74-63, on March 8, two teams expected to contend for a No. 1 seed, Rutgers and LSU, lost in their respective conference tournaments, leaving the women's basketball committee with a tough decision for what appears to be the final top seed.

The University of Maryland, College Park will try to raise $1 billion from private donors by the end of 2011 - an ambitious fundraising goal that dwarfs its previous efforts and one that officials hope will propel the state's flagship campus into the company of the nation's elite research universities. The university has raised more than $300 million of that total, officials announced yesterday in the launch of the public phase of the seven-year campaign, which began in 2004. "This is a huge statement on the part of the university," said William E. Kirwan, chancellor of the University System of Maryland and former president at College Park.
