Al Groh insisted he didn't lose faith in his Virginia Cavaliers. As the fourth quarter of Virginia's game against No. 18 North Carolina began, he turned to quarterback Marc Verica. "This is your quarter to shine," he told Verica. Trailing by seven with 2:18 to play, Verica led the Cavaliers on an 82-yard scoring drive that sent the game into overtime, and Cedric Peerman, who had scored in the final minute of regulation, ran in from 2 yards to give Virginia a 16-13 win over the Tar Heels yesterday, continuing North Carolina's struggles in Charlottesville.

More notes from Maryland's 27-26 victory over Virginia: * For the second straight game, Maryland had zero takeaways. The Terps had been among the best teams in the nation in forcing turnovers over their first four games. * Will Likely is still learning how to field punts. The ball on his first catch appeared to hit him high, and he muffed the punt. But Maryland coach Randy Edsall continued to use him on punts and kickoffs. Stefon Diggs also returned kicks. * Remember the pass that was tipped by Virginia cornerback Tim Harris into Diggs' hands for a 39-yard gain?

The Virginia Cavaliers, top-ranked and seeded second in the NCAA tournament, have arguably the deepest offense in the land, not to mention a defense that stifles opponents in ways that go unnoticed. Sporting weapons such as outstanding playmaker Conor Gill and consummate finishers such as attackman Drew McKnight and midfielder Jay Jalbert, the Cavaliers begin the postseason defense of their national title in the quarterfinals against Duke today at Homewood Field. In a game that shapes up as a battle of tempo between two familiar Atlantic Coast Conference opponents, Virginia hopes to shake off the rust that might show after nearly three weeks without a game.

The possibility crossed Towson coach Missy Doherty's mind a few times Sunday: Her Tigers just might get the toughest emotional draw in the NCAA women's lacrosse tournament. She was right. As Doherty and her team watched the televised selection show Sunday night, the first matchup revealed was Towson's draw, because the Tigers will be heading to Virginia for a first-round game Sunday. The Cavaliers are still reeling from the death of senior Yeardley Love, the Notre Dame Prep graduate who was found dead in her apartment Monday and was laid to rest in Baltimore on Saturday.

COLLEGE PARK - Will they fold early, fold late or push back and test their opponent for 40 rugged minutes? Will they be desperate to counter a well-earned reputation as a team that can't win away from home and has trouble sustaining good defensive play? And will they thrive or fall with their point guard position in flux? These are some of the things the No. 8 Maryland Terrapins are wondering as they study the Virginia Cavaliers, who visit Comcast Center tonight to round out Maryland's first trip through its Atlantic Coast Conference schedule.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The shocking midseason stumble is well behind them, although the surging Maryland Terrapins have never gotten the sting completely out of their minds. The Virginia Cavaliers are a much different story. On Feb. 6, when they stunned the Maryland men at Comcast Center by scoring 16 unanswered points late with a three-point barrage and took an 86-78 victory, Virginia appeared to be on to something big. Instead, the Cavaliers have disintegrated. Their defense has betrayed them.

If they don't start producing soon, the Virginia Cavaliers might run out of time to recover. If No. 10 Virginia keeps falling in the Atlantic Coast Conference standings and becomes a bubble team when the NCAA selects its 65-team tournament field next month, the Cavaliers' predicament could be traced to the night of Jan. 31, when Maryland erased a nine-point deficit with 3:22 left and shocked Virginia, 91-87. Virginia followed by losing a close game at No. 24 Missouri. But that was merely a warm-up for an embarrassing collapse at North Carolina State, which might have solidified serious NCAA tournament consideration by pummeling the Cavaliers on Wednesday, 85-68.

Maryland men's lacrosse coach Dave Cottle has a proven defense and an impressive stable of athletes overall, and he probably will need both elements to shine today for the No. 3 Terrapins to upset the No. 1 team in the country. As midseason approaches, the Virginia Cavaliers (9-0) look like the class of the NCAA. With an array of scoring threats led by attackmen Matt Ward and Ben Rubeor and midfielders Kyle Dixon and Matt Poskay, Virginia averages 15 goals and 52 shots a game, and revels in making the extra pass.

For University of Virginia coach Jeff Jones, losses in the Atlantic Coast Conference to North Carolina, Wake Forest and Georgia Tech go with the territory. But in the 20th game of the season, with his Cavaliers trailing Clemson by eight points at the half, the third-year coach had had enough."We were struggling a bit at that point of the season, so at halftime I challenged a couple of players, essentially, to wake up," Jones said. "And they did. We won the game, and that's what really enabled us to turn the corner."

The starts left a lot to be desired, but the Virginia men's lacrosse team had no qualms about the finish. The No. 3 Cavaliers fell behind by two goals early in three of four quarters, but Virginia scored five of the last seven goals in the final 13 minutes -- including the game-winner from sophomore midfielder Brian Carroll (Gilman) -- to edge No. 11 Syracuse, 14-13, in overtime in the Face-Off Classic at M&T Bank Stadium yesterday. Carroll's second goal of the game came with 1:29 left in overtime and gave the Cavaliers their fifth consecutive win against the Orange (2-1)
