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.

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.

Maryland's football coaches convened inside Gossett Team House during the Terps ' bye last week. They assessed how players fared during the first half of the season, analyzed what worked and what didn't from a game plan standpoint and also discussed what needs to change heading into the second half of the year. The reality? The Terps (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten) have some issues that need to be addressed for Maryland to make a run during the second half of the season, which begins with a home game against Iowa on Saturday.

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.

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.

In its first Big Ten home game, Maryland lost, 52-24, to Ohio State on Saturday. From a Terps perspective, here is a look at what went well and what did not during the game. THE GOOD Kicker Brad Craddock Craddock hit a school-record 57-yard field goal and is one of just three kickers nationally yet to miss a field goal after 10 or more attempts this season. Craddock also had touchbacks on three of his five kickoffs Saturday. Wide receiver Marcus Leak Leak had a highlight-reel-type catch during the third quarter, jumping and reaching above an Ohio State defensive back for a 25-yard gain along the sideline and then holding onto the ball as he fell out of bounds.

The Green Bay Packers signed former Maryland wide receiver Kevin Dorsey to their active roster Monday. Dorsey, who was selected by the Packers in the seventh round of last year's draft, spent the first five weeks of this season on Green Bay's practice squad after spending last year on the team's injured reserve because of a toe injury. Dorsey, who had five catches for 52 yards for Green Bay during the preseason, only had 18 catches for 311 yards and four touchdowns as a senior at Maryland in 2013.

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 - Randy Edsall's goal this week was to keep the pre-game preparation as routine as possible. The Maryland football coach told his team that Ohio State is just another opponent, that the Buckeyes have good players but the Terps do too. Nothing changed about Maryland's practice schedule. Edsall even turned down numerous interview requests because he did not want his players to see him doing anything different than he would during a normal week. But Edsall, his players and the rest of the program recognize the significance of Saturday's game against No. 20 Ohio State.

COLLEGE PARK -- For each inductee he introduced Friday night, emcee Chick Hernandez ran through a list of that person's accomplishments at the University of Maryland. For most who were announced, the 400 people gathered at tables in the Heise Room at the Samuel Riggs Alumni Center would give a standard applause as the inductee was led from the back corner of the room to the front and eventually to their seat. But when Hernandez introduced Len Bias, the 400 rose from their seats and clapped for an extended period as members of Bias' family - his parents and two of his siblings - was led to the front of the room.
