Forward Diandra Tchatchouang and guard Dara Taylor won't be back with the Terps women's basketball team next season, a spokeswoman with the Maryland athletic department confirmed Wednesday night. The news was reported first by The Diamondback. Tchatchouang, who started all 32 games and averaged 8.7 points and 5.0 rebounds, will return to her native France after this semester to rehabilitate from an anterior cruciate ligament injury she suffered during the NCAA tournament. Taylor, a sophomore who averaged 1.7points and 2.2 assists as her playing time declined after 2009-10, will transfer to Penn State.

Indiana came away with a 31-27 road win over No. 18 Missouri on Saturday, and the Hoosiers (2-1) begin the week as a three-point favorite heading into Saturday's home game against Maryland, according to ESPN. The Terps won at Syracuse, 34-20, Saturday to improve to 3-1. But Maryland is dealing with injuries to several key defensive players and will be facing an Indiana offense scoring an average of 33.7 points per game. The Hoosiers' defense has given up 72 points and 1,069 yards of total offense the past two weeks.

When I began covering college women's lacrosse, Maryland owned the sport. The Terrapins were in the process of winning seven straight NCAA championships and I watched them win the last five, including a thrilling 14-13 overtime win against Georgetown in 2001. After that, the Terps fell off the pace. The sport grew and the talent pool spread all around the country. A new power rose at Northwestern and soon threatened to surpass the Terps' title streak. But in May, the Terps made sure that wouldn't happen.

Navy (in Baltimore): Terps and Midshipmen have played only 20 times (Navy leads, 14-6), but there have been some memorable and intense games between teams that could become true rivals. Morgan State: Terps will face Bears on just four days' rest. It's the first time the universities -- located just 36 miles apart -- have played in football. Maryland fans sure remember losing to Bears in men's basketball in 2009. At West Virginia: Ralph Friedgen says he loves border rivalries, and this marks the resumption of one. Mountaineers will rely on young quarterback Geno Smith and a strong running game.

One night, the Longwood Lancers are going to beat a team of Maryland's caliber. Longwood coach Mike Gillian says he senses such an upset is coming. But the Terps began Tuesday night with a flurry of baskets, steals and emphatic blocks. As Maryland bolted to a 29-point, first-half lead, the message couldn't have been clearer -- not here, not tonight, not against the Terps, who prevailed, 106-55. Maryland recorded its most first-half points (57) since scoring 58 against St. John's in 2006.

Maryland coach Randy Edsall stood outside the visiting locker room at the Carrier Dome on Saturday shortly after the Terps beat Syracuse. Edsall was happy about the win, which moved Maryland to 3-1 heading into next week's Big Ten opener at Indiana. But he also understands the difficult position the Terps are in defensively because of the amount of injuries Maryland has endured since the season began in late August. "We're going to have to have a lot more guys step up," Edsall said.

Maryland came away with a 34-20 road win over Syracuse on Saturday afternoon. Here is what went well and what didn't from a Terps perspective. THE GOOD The offense during the first half For a half, Maryland's offense looked like the unit the Terps believe this is capable of being. Maryland had six first-half possessions. Four produced points. Three ended with touchdowns. Quarterback C.J. Brown missed on a potential long touchdown to wide receiver Stefon Diggs on the Terps' third drive and then again on another chance to wide receiver Deon Long later, but Brown had a nice 25-yard touchdown pass early.

Maryland defensive end Quinton Jefferson will miss the rest of the season because of a right knee injury he suffered during the Terps' loss to West Virginia on Sept. 13. Jefferson, who will undergo surgery Friday, had 47 tackles, 7 1/2 tackles for a loss and three sacks while starting all 13 games for Maryland last season. He had eight tackles and a sack in the first three games this year. This is another blow for a Terps defense that has dealt with injuries to several key players since the season began in late August.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - At the Big Ten media days in late July, Maryland coach Randy Edsall was asked to identify his primary concerns heading into the season. He answered immediately: Staying healthy. The Terps , who have dealt with numerous serious injuries to key players the past two seasons, got through preseason practice relatively healthy. But the injuries have continued to mount since the season started in late August, and Maryland lost two more starters to injuries during Saturday's 34-20 win over Syracuse.

COLLEGE PARK  -   Neither a festive crowd of an announced 6,000-plus at Ludwig Field nor the first Big Ten Conference home game against a nationally ranked opponent could awaken the slow-starting Maryland men's soccer team from its season-long scoring slumber Friday night. After falling behind 16th-ranked Michigan State in the first nine minutes, the suddenly unranked Terps had a few legitimate chances to find the net. A header hit the post in the first half, and a last-ditch header was cleared off the goal line by a Spartans defender with under a minute to go. Though Maryland outplayed the Spartans (4-1-1)

Players on the Maryland men's basketball team have frequently bad-mouthed the NIT over the years, and I recall one player referring to the NIT as a banishment to hell. This may be a case of most of the team suffering for the bad manners of a few, but there you are and that's life. I said to my wife and neighbor just yesterday, I would not blame the NIT if they didn't invite Maryland. If someone tells me I live in a lousy neighborhood and why don't I move, they needn't expect an invitation to my house.

The Maryland Terrapins men's basketball team is on such a competitive high going into Sunday's game at Clemson that it's almost hard to imagine the sagging Tigers laying a paw on them, but that's why God made ACC road games. The hot-shooting Terps have won four straight and will arrive at Littlejohn Coliseum on top of the Atlantic Coast Conference standings. Their only conference loss was an overtime defeat at Wake Forest, so fans could certainly be forgiven for starting to think about the Big Dance, but we'll know a lot more about the Terps and their postseason aspirations after Clemson and Thursday's road game against Florida State.

COLLEGE PARK -- A week from now, Maryland will be in Indiana for its first Big Ten game and the beginning of a gantlet that includes eight straight against conference teams. The Terrapins will likely be underdogs in most, if not all, of those games. That makes Saturday's game against Syracuse that much more important. Maryland's first goal each year is to qualify for a bowl game, a task that requires a team to win at least six games. The Terps (2-1) could still win enough to qualify even if they don't win Saturday.

COLLEGE PARK -- For Maryland, Saturday's game at Syracuse is a chance to get back on track after last week's loss to West Virginia and an opportunity to move to 3-1 heading into Big Ten play. But for Terps coach Randy Edsall , it is also a return to his alma mater. Edsall was a quarterback at Syracuse from 1976-79. He then began his coaching career at Syracuse as a graduate assistant 1980 and spent 11 seasons on the Orange's staff before moving on to Boston College in 1991.
