Maggio, a kicker and punter for the Lakers, was an All-Metro first-team selection last season after he averaged 44.7 yards per punt. He placed 11 punts inside his opponents' 20-yard line and thumped a 62-yard punt in a game vs. St. Paul's. "He's so good we're going to have to change our coverage," Boys' Latin coach Ritchie Schell said last season . "Sometimes, he out-kicks our coverage.

Roy Kramer, head of the NCAA basketball tournament selection committee, made a clarification yesterday that will please Wake Forest fans.Kramer was quoted recently as saying teams that do not have .500 or better records in their conference would have a difficult time getting into the tournament.Wake Forest (17-10) lost its last three ACC games to finish 7-9 in the league."What I really hoped I was saying and apparently did not say . . . was that should a team not have a winning record within a conference, there have to be some additional factors," Kramer said.

COLLEGE PARK - It was early in a Maryland-Wake Forest game last season and Devin Thomas and Alex Len seemed to be testing each other. Len, then Maryland's sophomore center, bumped with the Wake Forest power forward as the two looked to establish position. Thomas, then a freshman, raised a forearm that grazed Len's torso. It could have been an awkward situation for the Thomas family, watching from its Comcast Center seats. Bob Thomas and his wife, Tina Klotzbeecher-Thomas, are not only Devin's parents but also the parents of Alyssa Thomas, Maryland's women's basketball star . Any potential skirmish would pit their childrens' schools against each other.

COLLEGE PARK - The thought had to cross the mind of many Maryland fans when sophomore forward Charles Mitchell made layups on his team's first two possessions against Wake Forest on Tuesday night at Comcast Center. Why couldn't he have made a layup or dunk or a jump hook against Duke in the final seconds of Saturday's 69-67 loss to the No. 8 Blue Devils? Funny how the memories of those agonizing misses never made it into Mitchell's head in his team's 71-60 win over the Demon Deacons . Even when he hit a baby hook on the exact same curl play the Terps ran at Cameron Indoor Stadium, the one that hit the back rim and the front rim before falling off with less than a second to play.

COLLEGE PARK -- It took Nick Faust a few games of high school basketball to score 20 points for the first time. “I scored 20 when I was a sophomore at John Carroll, against Calvert Hall,” Faust, now a junior at Maryland, recalled Tuesday night.  “My junior year and senior year [at City] I scored 20 all the time.” It took until Faust's 97 th game at Maryland for the 6-foot-6 guard to reach that milestone. He did it in a 71-60 victory for the Terps over Wake Forest on Tuesday at Comcast Center .   Faust knew he had finally broken the 20-point barrier after making a breakaway dunk for points 19 and 20. “I did know when I made that dunk, I knew it was [for my 20 th point]

A coach can go a few different ways after his team has endured a wrenching loss - the sort that can hang with players and even come to define a season. The coach can play psychologist and perform the equivalent of group therapy, or simply make the determination that it's best to let it be. Maryland coach Mark Turgeon took the second route after the Terps' 69-67 loss at Duke last Saturday night. “We never talked about Duke, we just moved on,” Turgeon said after Maryland's 71-60 victory on Tuesday night over a Wake Forest team that has now lost six games in a row. “At about the 12-minute timeout of the first half, we talked about being tougher," he said.

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 Wake Forest Tuesday night.

COLLEGE PARK - The appearance of a fading Wake Forest team on Tuesday night at Comcast Center provided an exercise in Maryland's ability to forget. The Terps needed to block out their wrenching loss to Duke three nights earlier and the impending matchup with undefeated, top-ranked Syracuse in their next game on Monday. They needed to ignore vast patches of red seats left empty because many fans chose to skip an opponent who had lost its previous five games and happened to arrive in between the Terps' biggest games of the year.

What went right Maryland linebacker Erin Henderson had a team-high 12 tackles (seven solo), one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one interception. What went wrong Maryland's offense was exposed in overtime, starting on the Wake Forest 25-yard line and finishing on the 47. Defining moment Late in the third quarter, Wake Forest cornerback Alphonso Smith intercepted Jordan Steffy's pass in the end zone and ran it back 100 yards for a touchdown. What it means Against probably their first competition of the same caliber, the Terps didn't match up, and the offense was the reason.

Yesterday the Maryland General Assembly honored a true Maryland hero: Darryl Hill, the first African-American to play football for the University of Maryland and integrate the Atlantic Coast Conference. Speaker Michael Busch rightly compared Hill to Jackie Robinson. I had the honor of interviewing Darryl Hill several years ago for graduate school research project on the integration of the Washington Redskins.  Hill, a native of Washington, D.C., integrated Maryland football and the ACC a year after NFL Hall of Fame running back Bobby Mitchell became the first African-American on the Redskins roster.

MOBILE, ALA -- Michael Campanaro had already crafted a plan, convincing the defense that he intended to run another trademark intermediate route with a quick inside fake. Instead of cutting his pattern short at practice this week heading into Saturday's Senior Bowl all-star game, the Wake Forest wide receiver from River Hill dashed behind the secondary and made an over-the-shoulder touchdown catch. It was the kind of savvy, textbook play that prompted Atlanta Falcons wide receivers coach Terry Robiskie to single out the Clarksville native as an example of how to play the position to the other receivers on the North squad.
