TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon said he talked to his players at halftime of their National Invitation Tournament quarterfinal against Alabama about Frazier-Ali, Michael Jackson and other great performances at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Now, Maryland will get a chance to end its season with one of its own. The No. 2-seeded Terps weathered a late surge from the No. 1-seeded Crimson Tide on Tuesday night, winning 58-57 in Coleman Coliseum and earning a trip to Madison Square Garden for next week's NIT semifinals.

Think seeding is important? It sure is in the National Invitation Tournament, where top-seeded Alabama will get to host second-seeded Maryland on Tuesday night for the right to advance to the semifinals at Madison Square Garden on April 2. The better seed gets the home game in the NIT.   Alabama defeated fourth-seeded Stanford, 66-54, on Saturday to advance. If the Cardinal had won, the Terps would have hosted the quarterfinal game at Comcast Center. Maryland has won four of five games since the regular season ended -- two in the ACC tournament and two in the NIT. Alabama and Maryland last played in Puerto Rico early last season -- a 20-point Alabama win. The Crimson Tide hasn't lost at home since Dec. 30 -- a 53-50 loss to Tulane.

A three-year absence from the NCAA tournament doesn't sit well with Don Zimmerman, but the UMBC coach may not have to issue any challenges to his players. That may come from his senior class. Fourteen of the team's 42 players are seniors, who also are the largest class on the current roster. And those seniors have yet to get a taste of the NCAA tournament - a gap on their resumes that they're not shy about emphasizing, according to Zimmerman. “I think the message that they're delivering is, 'Hey, we haven't had a winning season since we got on board, and we're certainly not satisfied with that by any means.

Organizers of the Maryland Conservative Action Network conference (Turning the Tides 2013) were profoundly disappointed that The Sun ran an attack on our conference and our speakers on the very morning of our conference ("The tide of Islamophobia," Jan. 12). You did a huge disservice to your readers by posting this polemic in a complete vacuum and without an opportunity for response from those, especially Pamela Geller, whose characters were impugned by a writer with an obvious ax to grind.

Today, the Maryland Conservative Action Network (MDCAN) is hosting a daylong conference in Annapolis entitled "Turning the Tides. " Those scheduled to attend include Republican state Dels. Nic Kipke and Neil Parrott, Frederick County Board of Commissioners President Blaine Young, and former Republican candidates for federal office Dan Bongino and Ken Timmerman. Unfortunately, instead of selecting a legitimate conservative activist as headline speaker, MDCAN has chosen Pamela Geller, the leader of a designated hate group and one of America's most virulent Islamophobes.

When former Gilman star Cyrus Jones Jr. finished sorting through his 40-plus football scholarships following his senior season, he concluded Alabama was the right place for him. This time of year, the big game in front of him, is why. "One of the main reasons I wanted to come to Alabama was to have a chance to play at the highest level and compete for a national championship every year," said Jones, who has made an impact in his freshman season...

Stuck in their first three-game losing streak since 2009, the Ravens have maintained there is no need to panic because the team has already clinched a playoff berth in the AFC and has a one-game lead over the Cincinnati Bengals for the AFC North title. A win against the New York Giants on Sunday would assure the Ravens of the No. 4 seed and a home contest in the first round of the postseason. Even so, there's a sense of urgency in the Ravens locker room to snap the skid and inject a little confidence into the organization.

The National Weather Service issued coastal flood warnings for many parts of Maryland until 8 a.m. Wednesday. The affected areas are southern Baltimore County and Harford, Anne Arundel, Calvert, Charles and St. Mary's counties. Baltimore and Harford Counties should expect high tide levels 2 feet above normal. The other areas are expected to see levels 1 to 2 feet higher than usual. The tides will likely bring inundation of shoreline areas and large waves at high tide could make flooding worse, according to the weather service.

A Baltimore City Council committee on Thursday approved the sale of up to $35 million in bonds to help finance Under Armour's expansion of its Tide Point corporate headquarters. The Budget and Taxation Committee unanimously approved the sale of the bonds. The measure is to move to the full City Council on Monday. The council last month voted unanimously and without discussion to approve tax increment financing for the project. The deal allows the city to issue bonds to pay for infrastructure improvements on and around the waterfront campus.

The Baltimore City Council made the right choice Monday in unanimously approving an important provision in the deal that will retain Under Armour's corporate headquarters at Tide Point and allow the maker of branded performance apparel to greatly expand its presence here and add as many as 1,600 new jobs over the next decade. Under Armour is Baltimore's fastest-growing large employer, and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was also correct to "protect this house" and take the necessary steps to enable the expansion, which is expected to include a new 80,000-square-foot office building and retail outlet in the short term and eventually an office building three times that size and an 800-space parking garage, as well as athletic fields and walking trails.
