For five days last month, Bryan Harris had found everything he wanted in a college basketball program. Harris, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound combo guard, graduated from Southern in 2011 with no Division I scholarship offers. But a standout post-grad season with Massanutten Military Academy in Virginia earned him several DI offers, including one from Duquesne, which he accepted May 18 . Harris' happiness, however, proved to be fleeting. On May 23, Duquesne fired coach Ron Everhart , leaving Harris' status as a Dukes commitment utterly uncertain.

A two-week break couldn't slow Alyssa Thomas and No. 8 Maryland. Thomas had 18 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists for her second triple double in three games and fourth of her career as the Terps beat Wofford, 110-53, on Saturday in the Terrapin Classic semifinals. It was Maryland's highest point total since 2008 and largest margin of victory this season. The Terps (11-1) face College of Charleston (7-4), a 79-68 winner over Howard, in today's championship at 1:30 p.m. "I thought we were really, really good," Maryland coach Brenda Frese said of her team, which had last played Dec. 14. Shatori Walker-Kimbrough tied a career high with 17 points and hit a career-high four 3-pointers in the Terps ' ninth straight victory, the past three of which have come by an average of 54 points.

Over the past two years, Bryan Harris graduated from Southern High, completed a successful post-grad year at Massanutten (Va.) Military Academy, committed to Duquesne, parted ways with the Dukes after their coach was fired, signed with Wofford and then returned home to Maryland after the first semester of his freshman year.   “It seems like every day I'm waiting for something else to happen. It's been a crazy process the last few years,” Harris said. “Everything is finally set now. I can just focus on school and basketball.” The focus now for Harris, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound point guard, will be playing basketball and studying computer science at UMBC.

BILL Clinton's presidency is on the verge of a downward spiral in which perceived weakness produces further weakness. If he does not pull up on the stick, Mr. Clinton will have little to take to the voters either in the mid-term elections of 1994, or in 1996.The recent defection of conservative House Democrats over energy taxes and social spending is only the latest example. As the president seems vulnerable and vacillating, each interest group and each party faction figures it has nothing to lose by holding the president's program hostage for its own parochial demands -- which only weakens him further.

Nearly 1,000 people gathered about the Liberty Tree on the lawn of St. John's College in Annapolis yesterday for the college's 200th commencement exercises.As the bells rang two o'clock, 76 undergraduates and 25 graduate students marched to their seats on the green.There were, appropriately for a graduation, plenty of beaming parents and a few oblivious noisy children. There were the black-gowned graduating students, a bit misty, like the weather.But because this was St. John's, it was not quite like graduation anywhere else.

Seniors Jim Hamilton and Alex Kohnen, most likely playing their final home game at Alumni Hall, provided a fitting ending in leading Navy to a 73-55 victory over Wofford last night.It would take an odd set of circumstances in the Patriot League tournament in Worcester, Mass., this weekend to give the Midshipmen another home appearance in the championship game.Hamilton, whose performance has been markedly inconsistent this season and has led to severely diminished playing time, scored 14 points and also broke the academy's career three-point record.

COLLEGE PARK -- The Wofford Terriers were a curiosity that landed at Byrd Stadium last night, a tiny Division I-AA school dreaming of slaying a dragon by comparison. And for a brief period of time, the Maryland Terrapins actually were locked in a legitimate battle with this pesky group from South Carolina. But it didn't take long for reality, physics and talent to take over as Maryland shook off a sluggish start offensively, asserted itself with a dominant second quarter, scored the game's first 30 points, then settled for a 37-8 victory before an announced crowd of 44,098.

Watching tape of Wofford College this week, Maryland offensive coordinator Charlie Taaffe is having flashbacks of another unknown and undaunted wishbone team hoping its wishes come true at the expense of a big-name opponent. It happened a decade ago when Taaffe was the head coach at The Citadel and his team shocked Arkansas, 10-3, in Fayetteville in the season opener. The next day, Razorbacks coach Jack Crowe resigned. "We had beaten South Carolina in '90," Taaffe recalled yesterday. "So the players who were on that team knew it was in the realm of possibility."

COLLEGE PARK - Starting with football coach Ralph Friedgen, the Maryland Terrapins have spent all week forcing themselves to respect an opponent they are expected to crush tonight at Byrd Stadium. Never mind that the Wofford Terriers represent a tiny Division I-AA school of 1,100 students in Spartanburg, S.C. Forget that the Terriers were a late throw-in to Maryland's schedule, when Troy State pulled out of its date in College Park last spring after agreeing to a deal with Missouri. Dismiss the notion that the Terps (2-2)

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland quarterback Scott McBrien is going back to his old school, and Terps coach Ralph Friedgen does not want the junior to talk about it. As the Terps prepare for their first road trip in a month, a ride that will take them on Saturday into the nasty atmosphere of Mountaineer Field against a familiar opponent in West Virginia, Maryland figures to find out much about its makeup as the rest of the Atlantic Coast Conference schedule lies...
