COLLEGE PARK -- Terence Morris could present a win-win situation for Maryland basketball. If the talented junior forward can break out of a shooting slump, the Terps will be one of the more dangerous customers in the country and Morris' NBA stock will rise. If Morris were to leave Maryland early, the Terps would plaster his photo next to those of its other former great players, such as Joe Smith and Steve Francis. Should Morris remain unable to end the woes that have dropped his field-goal percentage to .397 in Atlantic Coast Conference games, however, perhaps he'll conclude that a senior season at Maryland would be in his best interest.

New York -- His career on the brink of oblivion, Terence Morris took the first steps toward basketball revival in Jerusalem last winter. The University of Maryland product, who helped the Terrapins reach the Final Four for the first time in 2001, bounced around the NBA and the NBA Development League and competed for a team in Greece over the past five years, playing sparingly. In December 2006, his agent, Mike Kneisley of Washington-based The Neustadt Group, worked out a deal with Hapoel Jerusalem, a well-regarded Israeli club that was looking for a power forward for the remainder of the season.

Lonny Baxter did the wrong thing in the wrong place. As a professional basketball player, he has yet to find himself with the right team at the right time. Baxter is expected to be released today from a prison in Washington. He has been behind bars since Aug. 16, when he fired a .40-caliber Glock into the sky from his Range Rover while not far from the White House. Baxter was arrested hours before he was scheduled to leave the country to play for an Italian club, which his agent expects him to do by week's end. Montepaschi Siena will be the ninth pro team that has had the rights to Baxter, a basketball vagabond before and after his four seasons at Maryland.

John Thompson spoke plainly yesterday of what he would do if he were an 18-year-old with the chance to get rich playing professional basketball, just like first-round draft picks Kwame Brown, Tyson Chandler and Eddy Curry. "Probably, if I'd been in that situation, I would have done the same thing," the former Georgetown men's basketball coach said, referring to three of the top four picks in Wednesday night's NBA draft. But Thompson, the keynote speaker at the Associated Press Sports Editors convention at the Wyndham hotel downtown, didn't mute his earlier calls for an age requirement for entrance to basketball's highest league.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - One week ago, after his team delivered a couple of performances not befitting a powerhouse, Maryland forward Tahj Holden told his mom, Debbie, that she should stay home in Red Bank, N.J., for the West Regional play here at Arrowhead Pond. Instead, he told her to ante up for plane tickets to Minneapolis, the site of this year's Final Four. If Debbie Holden hadn't bought them, her son is a big reason why she has to now, as the third-seeded Terps downed No. 1 seed Stanford in the Elite Eight, 87-73.

BOISE, Idaho - The University of Maryland should have learned from other first-round NCAA tournament losses against smaller schools such as Santa Clara and the College of Charleston. Instead, the No. 3-seeded Terps almost took another painful walk down memory lane yesterday before Maryland guard Juan Dixon made two three throws with five seconds remaining to secure an 83-80 win over No. 14-seeded George Mason in the first round of the 2001 tournament. That's right, George Mason. A Colonial Athletic Association team had the Terps staring into the abyss again.

BOISE, Idaho - When George Mason freshman guard Richard Tynes wants off-the-court advice, he goes to senior teammate and forward George Evans. When he feels a little nervous about today's NCAA tournament opening-round game against Maryland, he gets inspiration from Evans. Evans doesn't succumb to daily pressure. For Evans, pressure is when you're surrounded by eight armed Iraqi soldiers in the Gulf War. Pressure is serving tours of duty in the Army on peacekeeping missions in Somalia and Haiti.

Three hours after the 16th-ranked Terps beat No. 2 Duke, 91-80, with their most inspired effort of a wild season at Cameron Indoor Stadium, Mouton stepped off the team bus behind Cole Field House and surveyed several hundred cheering fans. Mouton later learned of the party that had consumed the campus after Tuesday's huge victory.

COLLEGE PARK - Terence Morris insisted Wednesday's disastrous showing by the Maryland Terrapins at Virginia bore no connection to any fallout over the team's emotionally draining overtime loss to Duke four nights earlier. "That had nothing to do with it," said Morris, visibly upset after the Terps fell apart during both halves of their 99-78 drubbing at the hands of the 11th-ranked Cavaliers. "We practiced really well the last two days. We just came out like a different team, and I don't understand it. We go up and down and around.
