He has yet to play a college basketball game, but Makhtar Ndiaye has created a stir on both coasts, as well as at the NCAA headquarters outside Kansas City., Mo.Ndiaye was supposed to take the place of Rodney Rogers at Wake Forest, but the NCAA ruled that the Demon Deacons had an "unfair recruiting advantage" in getting a commitment from the 6-foot-9, 245-pound center from Senegal.That's NCAA-speak for saying Wake Forest coach Dave Odom might not have been totally aboveboard in Ndiaye's recruiting.

COLLEGE PARK -- They have had four days to recover from Sunday's nationally televised upset of North Carolina. They will have less than two days to prepare for Saturday's regular-season finale at home against Virginia.Somewhere in between those two emotional settings, the Maryland Terrapins will have to get ready for tonight's 9 o'clock Atlantic Coast Conference game against Wake Forest at the Lawrence Joel Coliseum in Winston-Salem, N.C."What I worry about as a coach is that we don't look at the North Carolina game as a tap-off to the season," Maryland coach Gary Williams said earlier this week.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- The University of Maryland basketball team hadn't won many Atlantic Coast Conference road games in its first four seasons under Gary Williams. Six, to be exact. One last year. Never more than two in the same season.And certainly the Terrapins hadn't survived many, at home or away, like the one they played yesterday against Wake Forest at the Lawrence Joel Coliseum. With 25 percent shooting in the first half. With a six-point deficit and less than seven minutes remaining.

By now, nearly everyone who follows college basketball knows about Joe Smith's rise from obscurity to stardom, from being overshadowed throughout his high school career in Norfolk, Va., to creating his spotlight at the University of Maryland.But compared with Tim Duncan, Smith was the king of hype before he got to College Park. Wake Forest coach Dave Odom, much like Gary Williams with Smith, didn't know what he had in the 6-foot-10 center from St. Croix in the Virgin Islands."I didn't think he'd be this good this soon," Odom said this week.

It was another horrible weekend for college football teams in the state. Nine of them played and the only win was Maryland's late, come-from-behind 23-22 victory over Wake Forest -- a team that has now lost 15 straight Atlantic Coast Conference games.Even in victory, Maryland's second against four losses, coach Joe Krivak was less than jovial. Said Krivak after the squeaker: "This is too hard on the ticker."* When Navy was 0-5, coach George Chaump said it was the worst start of his career.

CARY, N.C. -- Zack Schilawski always dreamed of scoring big goals in his hometown. He delivered the biggest one of his career there yesterday, scoring the eventual game-winner to lift Wake Forest to a 2-1 victory over Ohio State in the NCAA College Cup championship. "It's unbelievable," said Schilawski, who graduated from Cary High. "Growing up here, I've seen a lot of great games on that field. It's a thrill just to be a part of a game like that, much less to win it. It was perfect." Schilawski broke a 1-1 tie with a goal in the 77th minute to help his team win the first NCAA men's soccer title in school history.

What: Second round, NCAA East Regional.Where: Baltimore Arena.When: Today, approximately 2:40 p.m.TV: Channel 13.First-round results: Wake Forest routed North Carolina A&T, 79-47. Saint Louis defeated Minnesota, 64-61, in overtime.Outlook: North Carolina's loss to Boston College last year was the only time since 1990 a No. 1 seed didn't get to the Sweet 16, but Demon Deacons center Tim Duncan said that reminder was irrelevant to Wake Forest's focus. The Demon Deacons have won 11 in a row, are playing together and have a considerable size advantage on the Billikens.

As the wins kept mounting for Maryland during the past month, so did the injuries - albeit quietly - but the effects were visible in Saturday's 38-16 loss at Boston College. At least five players - including four starters - remain questionable heading into the most critical game of the season, against No. 20 Wake Forest on Saturday. Coach Ralph Friedgen yesterday said he's hoping he'll have offensive linemen Donnie Woods and Jared Gaither, who "have to continue to pass some tests."

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- There were enough reasons Maryland needed to leave Wake Forest with a win last night, but the overriding benefit, coach Gary Williams said, was confidence - something that had begun to waver during a season that started with a swagger. Despite relinquishing a 23-point lead in the second half, Maryland remained resolute and preserved a 79-72 win before 13,089 at Lawrence Joel Coliseum last night.
