Eight months ago, Maryland nose-dived into the offseason by losing a 27-point, third-quarter lead at North Carolina State. The Wolfpack celebrated the biggest comeback win in their history by dancing and leaping on their sideline as the dazed Terps slowly left the field. As Maryland prepares to open a new season Saturday, the Terps don't talk much about the collapse that extended their season-ending losing streak to eight games. "I haven't mentioned really anything about last year," coach Randy Edsall said Tuesday.

In a clash between ranked Colonial Athletic Association playoff hopefuls, Towson rode a dominant defensive performance to a 15-9 victory over William & Mary on Saturday. Towson (9-2, 5-2 in the CAA) and its high-octane offense were slowed by the Tribe's conference-best defense in the first half. However, the Tigers seized the momentum in the second half behind gritty performances by quarterback Peter Athens and running back Terrance West (Northwestern) , and withstood a furious final drive by William & Mary to emerge victorious.

In his team's first action since allowing 41 points in its season opener, Towson coach Rob Ambrose on Saturday came up with a rather straight-forward approach to stopping William & Mary. "If they don't have the ball, then outside of us being stupid they can't score," Ambrose said. "There's a mentality there. " The No. 12 Tigers maintained possession for nearly 36 minutes, running 19 more offensive plays than their opponent in a 20-17 win over the Tribe before an announced 8,309 at Johnny Unitas Stadium.

Radio: TowsonTigers.com Series: William & Mary leads, 7-2 What's at stake: Even during a bye week, No. 10 Towson moved up the standings in the Colonial Athletic Association.

Maryland coach Gary Williams had known precisely what his Terps were facing. He knew William & Mary was an efficient, senior-dominated team built for 3-point shooting and primed to knock off major-conference opponents. So it must have been a helpless feeling for Williams to watch the Tribe build a 16-point second-half lead by smoothly running its variation of the Princeton offense as the Terps failed to keep pace with William & Mary's long-range accuracy. Maryland - urged on by a restless Comcast Center crowd - attempted several second-half comebacks, but shot too poorly - four of 25 on threes - and succumbed, 83-77.

The Colonial Athletic Association tournament may have been short on fans, but the four-day event ended in a way organizers surely loved: with a frantic, late-game comeback and an iconic image of fans bounding onto the Baltimore Arena floor in celebration. Conference officials hope that the final scene - of Delaware celebrating its first CAA tournament title and first NCAA tournament berth since 1999 -- will be replayed and endure in the minds of Baltimoreans. They want those final images to help sell the tournament when it returns to Baltimore next season.

It was going to be Jerrelle Benimon's show. Towson's star forward knew it, his coach knew it and much of the announced crowd of 4,051 at Baltimore Arena probably sensed it as well. Seeking to advance to its first-ever Colonial Athletic Association tournament championship game and take the next big step in the program's revival, second-seeded Towson trailed William and Mary throughout Sunday night's second half. “It's about to get ugly,” Benimon, the two-time CAA Player of the Year, shouted to no one in particular as he ran back on defense after converting a difficult shot with 12:01 left.

Before Towson's Senior Night matchup with William and Mary on Saturday at SECU Arena, Tigers coach Pat Skerry nearly came to tears while addressing his four seniors, who helped the program rebuild itself after a 1-31 record two seasons ago. It didn't matter for Towson that, on paper, the game was meaningless. As Jerrelle Benimon and the rest of the Tigers senior class walked to center court for senior ceremonies, Delaware was putting the finishing touches on its victory over the College of Charleston, locking Towson into the No. 2 seed in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament, which begins March 7, and stripping them of a chance at an automatic berth to the National Invitation Tournament.

Coppin State men's basketball coach Fang Mitchell isn't too worried about seeding. The Eagles (9-18, 6-8 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) sit in seventh place with just two games to play before the conference tournament, but with that he finds inspiration. “Look at last year,” Mitchell said. “North Carolina A&T came in as the 7th seed and wound up winning the conference championship. So, it is possible. We are optimistic.” Mitchell also hearkens back to 2008, when Coppin State grabbed the No. 7 seed and won the tournament.
