Ellie Kavanagh had never been so happy to sleep through her alarm. The Virginia Tech junior had planned to go for a morning workout at the campus gym on Thursday. But instead, she was in her apartment a few miles away when her computer screen went black and the public safety message popped up. Shots had been fired on campus. A gunman was on the loose. Kavanagh, a Stoneleigh resident, was still in high school on April 16, 2007, when Virginia Tech student Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 people and himself in the deadliest campus shooting spree in American history.

There is a certain anxiety that comes with being a Maryland fan this season and watching a team that is clearly maturing but still prone to missed free throws and other lapses that turn potential blowout victories into tense affairs at the end. Maryland coach Mark Turgeon has used the word "young" so many times to describe his team that he has begun to apologize for repeating himself. On Saturday, Maryland showed its growth -- but also its inexperience -- in a 73-69 victory over Virginia Tech in which the Terps built a 15-point lead but had to hold on at the finish.

Whether it was who could make the best salad or who could dress the sharpest, Kendall, Kyle and Corey Fuller always wanted to be better than each other. Competition fueled the brothers from Baltimore when they were young, and it helped them in sports as they grew older. These intra-family battles may have led to childish fights and arguments, but it never separated the family. It only strengthened it. And when Kendall Fuller announced he would join his brothers in college by committing to Virginia Tech - becoming the fourth Fuller to play football for the Hokies - that family strength was reaffirmed.

A compilation of comments from media and others overseas in reaction to the U.S. college shooting: From the Melbourne, Australia, Herald Sun's commentary section: "Sadly, Australians are no strangers to the shock being felt in America today. It echoes the 1996 Port Arthur massacre, in which Martin Bryant shot dead 35 people. After that tragedy, newly elected Prime Minister John Howard courageously took on the local gun lobby to introduce tough new gun laws. Yesterday, Mr. Howard reaffirmed his determination to discourage an American-style gun culture arising here.

College football Terps to play West Virginia, Virginia Tech in Baltimore Maryland has agreed to play two more football contests at M&T Bank Stadium, the school announced Wednesday.

Welcome to a second season of Morning Shootaround. We will follow the Terps throughout the 2013-14 season, but this year in this space we will provide a look ahead rather than looking back. We will try to analyze Maryland's strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of its upcoming opponent. We also hope to provide quotes and anecdotes from practices to give some idea of what Mark Turgeon and his team are doing. Here are a few things to look for as the Terps get ready to play Virginia Tech on Tuesday.

WASHINGTON - When the Virginia Tech game had been won, Maryland football coach Randy Edsall bolted from the sideline and bounded across the field, his arms upraised, his fists pumping, an ear-to-ear grin on his face. As the Terps prepared for Friday's Military Bowl game against Marshall in Annapolis, Edsall said he regards the 27-24, overtime win over the Hokies on Nov. 16 as a watershed moment not only of the season, but perhaps for his program. If not for that victory, the Terps (7-5)

BLACKSBURG, Va. - Not since Maryland beat West Virginia at M&T Bank Stadium to start the season 4-0 had senior quarterback C.J. Brown felt as good as he did last week. The concussion Brown sustained at Florida State in early October was the first major setback. It was followed by a string of blows Brown took elsewhere that seemed to slow him down both physically and mentally. But at Lane Stadium, against heavily favored Virginia Tech, Brown finally delivered his own knockout punch Saturday.

Two freshmen, a sophomore and a walk-on will be looked to for contributions.

BLACKSBURG, Va. -- In the tunnel, their excitement was eerily marked by complete silence. While Virginia Tech's football players waited, just a few feet away, in the stadium's giant bowl, more than 66,000 fans locked their eyes on a moving video tribute playing on the scoreboard. When the video finished, the opening riffs of Metallica's "Enter Sandman" started playing, and the players burst onto the field. Then a football game was played, which I guess isn't too surprising since that's what everyone came to see. But it had been billed as much more.
