In 2006, the Maryland women's basketball team won the NCAA title in Boston, just a short ride from here down the Massachusetts Turnpike. But these Terrapins do not have Kristi Toliver and Crystal Langhorne. On Thursday night, Maryland received a major setback in its attempt to reach its seventh consecutive NCAA tournament, losing, 83-70, to Boston College at Conte Forum. "We put pressure on ourselves because we knew we controlled our destiny if we go out and win this game," guard Lori Bjork said.

On a hot and misty July morning in the woods near Savage, several kids and adults screamed with joy as they flew past treetops on a zip line. There was joy, and probably more than a little fear, in those Tarzan yells. Zooming down the 330-foot-long cable, zip liners, the staff of Terrapin Adventures estimates, can reach speeds of up to 20 mph. In other words, it's far from a typical day at work.

Then, suddenly, lacrosse was no longer the focal point of her life. "The day I took off my Maryland uniform ... I knew I couldn't leave it behind," Adams said. "I knew that's what I wanted to do; I wanted to pass on the incredible experience that I had to future student-athletes and help them love the experience as much as I did."

Virginia linebacker Isaiah Davis, the younger brother of Maryland standout safety Sean Davis, verbally committed to the Terrapins Tuesday night. Davis said he called offensive coordinator Mike Locksley as Maryland wrapped up practice Tuesday night and later spoke to coach Randy Edsall. “For one, being close to home [was appealing] and having my family being there,” Davis said during a phone interview. “Playing in the Big Ten, there's a lot of competition in that conference, and having the opportunity to play with my brother on the same team [was attractive]

Playing for the first time since its most dispiriting loss of the season a week earlier, the ninth-ranked Maryland women's basketball team punished Boston College in the early stages Thursday night and coasted the rest of the way for an 86-44 victory before an announced 3,607 at Comcast Center that included the return of Atlantic Coast Conference leading scorer Alyssa Thomas.

Wednesday's entry is the fifth in a series taking a look at each of the seven Division I programs in this state according to their order of finish from last season. The Sun's lacrosse preview will be published on Friday, Feb. 7. This is Maryland's turn. Overview: The Terps enjoyed what would be considered a successful regular season in many circles, with 10 wins for the first time since 2007 and the program's first Atlantic Coast Conference title since 2004. But the No. 1 seed fell to No. 4 seed Virginia in the league tournament, and the downward spiral continued until a loss to Cornell in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

Lefty Driesell's career at Maryland was coming to an end when a sportswriter who had spent the first 10 years of his career in New York showed up to cover the Terrapins for The Baltimore Sun. It was the summer of 1985 and there were rumors that Driesell might be going back home to Norfolk to coach Old Dominion. Driesell, who was coming off the Terps winning an ACC tournament championship two seasons before, had told a paper down there that there was “a 50-50 chance” he would be leaving College Park after 17 seasons to coach the Monarchs.

Thousands of diamondback terrapins drown each year in the Chesapeake Bay when they're caught in the crab pots that waterfront residents set in their creeks and marshes.An Ohio University herpetologist wants to stop the unintentional losses.Willem Roosenburg says he has a new kind of pot that would allow trapped turtles to breathe until they can be freed, while catching just as many crabs.But his pot is 6 feet tall, and that makes it illegal in Maryland.Crab pots are "probably the single factor that is most severely affecting terrapin populations throughout their range" from New England to Texas, he said.

COLLEGE PARK -- In January 2007, Maryland athletic department officials considered an untested strategy for promoting their football team to fans and potential recruits. What if the school starred its players and coaches in a reality television series chronicling the sweat, pain, injuries and sacrifice needed to build a team? Seventeen months and tens of thousands of dollars later, athletic officials say they have what they wanted: a show with a raw, earthy quality that they believe engages fans and serves as a novel recruiting tool.

This time around, there would be no letdowns. Alyssa Thomas had a game-high 23 points and 13 rebounds in just 23 minutes, as Maryland held host Towson without a basket for spans of more than 8 minutes in the first half and 6 minutes in the second, building an insurmountable early lead on its way to an 88-43 win.
