Maryland has pulled out of the Jimmy V Classic against Villanova on Dec. 8 because of "scheduling issues," according to a news release from ESPN. The Terps, who were replaced by Illinois, will take part in the event in 2016. Not playing Villanova takes a major opportunity at a Top 50 win off the table for the Terps, who are scheduled to play Virginia in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge at Comcast Center the week before and also have possible matchups against Iowa State and Arizona State at the CBE Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City.

It was around this time last season that Maryland stunned Michigan State - an important early-season victory that was to later aid the Terps' case for advancing to the NCAA tournament. Those sorts of opportunities - big-time, nonconference games - don't come along too often. But the Terps (5-2) have just that sort of game tonight at Verizon Center against undefeated and third-ranked Villanova (7-0) in the BB&T Classic. Villanova has three guards - Scottie Reynolds, Corey Fisher and Corey Stokes - averaging double-figure scoring.

In a move to strengthen its schedule, Johns Hopkins announced Wednesday that it had added Ohio State and Villanova to next year's slate. The Blue Jays will open the 2014 campaign against the Buckeyes and will meet the Wildcats in a midweek game late in the season. Ohio State, which upended then-No. 5 Loyola and No. 3 Denver to capture the Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament championship and advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament, will replace Siena. Villanova, which shared the Big East regular-season title with Syracuse before losing to the Orange in the conference tournament final, will replace Army.

A goal by Villanova freshman midfielder Devin McNamara (Boys' Latin) and a one-minute penalty on Johns Hopkins junior long-stick midfielder Michael Pellegrino 77 seconds into the third quarter not only helped the Wildcats close the gap to 7-6, but also appeared to give them a prime opportunity to tie the score. But sophomore Craig Madarasz - filling in for an ineffective Drew Kennedy - won the ensuing faceoff (one in his 7-of-9 night) and the No. 5 Blue Jays eventually pulled away with a 13-7 victory at Homewood Field in Baltimore on Wednesday night.

No. 4 Notre Dame (9-1) @ No. 12 Villanova (8-4) Saturday, 5:30 p.m. Outlook: The winner will take control of the race to finish the season with the top seed and home-field advantage in the Big East Conference tournament. The Fighting Irish lead Division I in defense, allowing just an average of 5.6 goals. But the Wildcats - who are scoring 11 goals per game - might have the offensive personnel and schemes to solve Notre Dame.

Johns Hopkins has won all six meetings in its series with Villanova, which is resuming for the first time since 2002. The Blue Jays have outscored their opponents, 82-61, while going 5-2 at home, while Villanova has outscored its opponents, 69-67, in its 3-4 record on the road. The Wildcats (5-7) have won four of their last six games, but an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament seems unlikely. They do have the Big East tournament AQ as a means to NCAAs. Senior long-stick midfielder John LoCascio has recorded four goals and 12 assists this season and is ranked fifth in Division I in caused turnovers per game (2.3)

Johns Hopkins had to rally back from deficits of 2-0 and 3-1 in the first quarter and led 7-6 and 8-7 in the third quarter.

Top-ranked Maryland went to its bag of tricks to pull out a narrow win over visiting Villanova on Friday night. The Terps employed a zone defense a few times during their 12-10 decision over the Wildcats at Byrd Stadium in College Park, and the tactic was especially welcoming in the final minutes of regulation. Sophomore midfielder Jack Curran's goal off a pass from sophomore attackman Tim Mulrenan with 5:02 left in the fourth quarter capped a 4-0 Villanova run in an 8:21 span, and the team needed just two goals to extend the game into overtime.

A week after setting a career high with 343 yards and two touchdowns on 22-for-33 passing in a 44-28 win against then-No. 19 New Hampshire, Towson's Peter Athens had better numbers Saturday night against No. 15 Villanova. He finished 24-for-41 for 355 yards and two scores. But the fifth-year senior also threw three interceptions, including two in the fourth quarter. The first two interceptions could hardly be blamed on Athens. The first one was batted up in the air by Wildcats junior nose tackle Pat Williams, and the second one ricocheted off junior wide receiver Derrick Joseph and into the waiting hands of sophomore safety Cameron McCurry.

COLLEGE PARK - For the second straight game, the Maryland men's lacrosse team had a substantial lead by halftime. And for the second straight game, the Terps had to sweat it out in the end.

An announced 2,045 watched the Terps , who improved to 6-0 for the third time in five years, roll up a 9-2 advantage in the first two quarters of what appeared to have the makings of an easy night.
