College Park -- Between halves last night, the players on Maryland men's basketball team had a few minutes to talk among themselves before coach Gary Williams joined them. As they sat in front of their lockers barely leading Western Carolina, the senior starter who played the least might have said the most. Senior Chris McCray, the team's leading scorer, sat out with an injured left ankle but helped spark his teammates to an 87-57 win against Western Carolina. "Chris said we've got to get more in the passing lane, because he saw some openings we could've got steals on, like we usually do, and get out there on the fast breaks, and get dunks and get the crowd into it," said senior forward Travis Garrison, who had a career-high 23 points and 14 rebounds for his second double double of the season.

Maryland narrowly escaped with a 24-17 win Saturday over South Florida , a team that was just 2-10 last season and that struggled with a lowly FCS program (Western Carolina) the week before. Nevertheless, the Terps begin this week as a three-point favorite over West Virginia, according to ESPN.com. West Virginia travels to face Maryland on Saturday in College Park, a game that will provide the biggest indicator to this point of just how good the Terps can be. The Mountaineers beat Towson 54-0 on Saturday and hung with No. 3 Alabama in Week 1 before falling 33-23.

COLLEGE PARK -- In only its eighth game of a long, cold season, the Maryland men's basketball team already looked worn last night, as it fell behind - again - to an opponent it outmatched in size and athleticism. The Terps" leading scorer was sidelined with an injury, another starter wore a black brace for a bruised thigh, and coach Gary Williams screamed in the first half as his team trailed Western Carolina, a 5-6 team from the Southern Conference that has only won two games against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents in 38 tries.

COLLEGE PARK -  Three times last week, South Florida running back Marlon Mack found an opening in Western Carolina's defensive front, made a defender or two miss down the field and then outran the defense for a touchdown of 56-plus yards. As a whole, South Florida does not appear to be very good. The Bulls gave up 31 points to a Western Carolina offense that did not score more than 30 points in any game last season. South Florida quarterback Mike White, meanwhile, threw just three touchdowns with nine interceptions in six games last year and was just 9 of 26 with no touchdowns and an interception against a Catamounts defense that gave up 62 points to Samford last season.

Not too long ago, South Florida was a consistent contender in the Big East. The Bulls had a winning record every year from 2006 through 2010 and were ranked as high as No. 2 in the country in 2007. Now, South Florida isn't very good. The Bulls team that Maryland plays Saturday was just 2-10 last season and struggled with a mediocre Football Championship Subdivision team (Western Carolina) in their season opener Saturday. Western Carolina was 2-10 last year, including 1-7 in the Southern Conference, but the Catamounts led South Florida, 17-16, at halftime and lost, 36-31.

Moments before Louisville coach Rick Pitino addressed reporters Friday, guard Preston Knowles walked in and placed a large gold Christmas ornament on a table. The gift wasn't the shiny orb, but the fact Knowles held it in his injured right hand, the surest sign he's ready to return after missing the Cardinals' 87-65 drubbing by Charlotte on Saturday because of a tender thumb. The Cardinals (5-2) certainly could use him after enduring the worst home loss in nine seasons under Pitino.
