National Player of the Year candidate Alyssa Thomas had her fifth career triple double and freshman Lexie Brown added a career-high 31 points as No. 8 Maryland (17-4, 5-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) cruised to an 89-64 win over host Syracuse (16-6, 5-4) on Sunday. Coming off three straight ACC losses, the Terps shot 35-for-57 from the field to take a double-digit lead in the first 10 minutes and extend it in the second half. The Orange took an early 8-4 lead on a three-point play, then missed seven shots and committed four turnovers as Maryland's Shatori Walker-Kimbrough contributed nine straight points in a 20-5 run.

LANDOVER -- In Chris Webber's perfect world, the Washington Bullets forward would play against the Golden State Warriors -- every night.There's something about the Warriors that bring out the best in Webber, who celebrated his 24th birthday with his seventh career triple double -- 23 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists -- in last night's 118-108 victory over the Warriors. It was Webber's third triple double in his past three games against his former teammates.For Webber, that was an impressive feat.

With a chance to repeat as champion in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament in jeopardy, the 10th-ranked Maryland women's basketball team leaned on junior forward Alyssa Thomas, and the two-time conference Player of the Year delivered a performance that, coupled with a stifling defense in overtime, allowed the Terps to outlast Wake Forest, 92-81, in the quarterfinals Friday night at Greensboro Coliseum. Disregarding stomach discomfort that had been bothering her since Tuesday, Thomas collected the first triple double in ACC tournament history, scoring a career-high 32 points, including eight in overtime, with 13 rebounds and 10 assists.

COLLEGE PARK -- The Maryland women's basketball record book is filled with significant team and personal achievements, from Atlantic Coast Conference titles to Player of the Year awards, and, of course, last year's national championship. But, until sophomore Marissa Coleman found Crystal Langhorne with a long, lead pass late in last night's 105-44 drubbing of UC-Santa Barbara, the top-ranked Terps had never had a player who had produced a triple double.

WASHINGTON - Even less than 90 minutes before last night's tip-off against the Dallas Mavericks, Washington Wizards coach Eddie Jordan was coy regarding lineup changes suited to the challenge of stopping a team that's tougher to defend than just about any other. "Maybe we'll run all guards," he said. "I don't want to show my hand just yet." While he might have envisioned many things, the hand his team eventually showed wasn't anything he might have expected during a 100-90 win over a team generally regarded to be well beyond the experience and ability of the Wizards.

LANDOVER -- On a night when Chris Webber celebrated his 24th birthday with a triple double against his former team, when Gheorghe Muresan was told he'd be starring in a major movie this summer, and the team won a rare game -- the Washington Bullets were soundly booed as they walked off the court.Go figure.The booing had nothing to do with the team's performance, although the Bullets nearly blew a 22-point lead in the fourth quarter. It had to do with hungry fans, who, promised a free burger if the Bullets scored 120 points, watched in dismay as Rod Strickland dribbled away the final seconds of last night's 118-108 win over the Golden State Warriors before a sellout crowd at the USAir Arena.

For a few tense hours yesterday, River Hill High had electricity issues. There simply wasn't any, and no one could figure out why. And so the boys basketball teams for Oakland Mills and River Hill waited. They waited in the nervous darkness until someone behind the scenes finally located the right switch, or pushed the right button, flooding the gym with some much-needed light. That, as it turned out, was also the cue for Hawks center Kevin Steenberge to put on perhaps his best performance yet. Steenberge scored 21 points, blocked 15 shots and grabbed 28 rebounds as River Hill easily outlasted No. 20 Oakland Mills, 67-43.

WASHINGTON - It didn't take nearly as long for Gilbert Arenas to start shooting against the Chicago Bulls last night as it did Wednesday in Toronto, when the Washington Wizards' point guard waited until the fourth quarter to hoist a shot. And once Arenas started shooting last night in the Wizards' 95-87 win over the Bulls at MCI Center, he didn't stop, going 7-for-15 from the field. But Arenas also notched his second career triple double - 21 points, 12 rebounds and 13 assists - in Washington's second consecutive win. "I guess you guys [the media]

On one of the rare times Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce missed a shot Sunday, Andray Blatche corralled the rebound and fired a full-length pass down the court to Nick Young for a vicious one-handed jam. Admiring his work, Blatche stopped at half-court, looked over at the Washington Wizards bench and smiled as he struck his version of the Heisman Trophy pose. Blatche later joked that he's "a quarterback," showing a playful side that he had hid the past few games as fans at Verizon Center booed him. Blatche played through the distraction, just as Young was able to fight through a left hand injury.

Before the Washington Wizards hosted the Boston Celtics on Sunday in the first game of a home-and-home set, coach Flip Saunders said he wanted to see John Wall play with more enthusiasm. Wall sulked through the Wizards' loss in Milwaukee on Friday and Saunders criticized his effort, claiming there would be consequences if he couldn't handle his emotions better. "I told him, if he doesn't play hard and he doesn't have a smile on his face, I'm going to take him out," Saunders said of Wall.
