Nearly a quarter-century after he finished his Maryland career starring for a team not permitted to play in the NCAA tournament, Walt Williams will make his March Madness debut Friday in Spokane, Wash.
We'll find out Friday whether former Maryland basketball coach Lefty Driesell will be a finalist for induction in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame this year, but former Terps star Len Elmore doesn't want to leave anything to chance.
When No. 8 Maryland hosts No. 3 Iowa at Xfinity Center on Thursday, it will mark the 15th time two top 10 men¿s teams have faced off in College Park since Lefty Driesell arrived in 1969. Interestingly, it will be the first time that has happened on the College Park campus since the No. 3 Terps beat top-ranked Duke, 86-73, at Cole Field House during the 2001-02 season.
One of the common threads that ties together the 17 seasons Mark Turgeon has been a Division I college basketball coach are the transfers who have helped transform his respective teams, particularly those at Wichita State and Maryland.
Bino Ranson and Stan Spirou will have something of a mini-reunion Friday when Southern New Hampshire, which reached the Division II Elite Eight last season before losing to eventual champion Florida Southern, play the No. 3 Terps in a preseason game at Xfinity Center.
Mount Saint Joseph sophomore Jalen Smith, a five-star prospect already ranked as the No. 1 player in the state and No. 17 overall by ESPN, was offered a scholarship on what was his third unofficial visit to College Park.
It's back-to-school time, and that means lots of think pieces from professors full of gentle chiding at students, reminding them to read the syllabus and the books, put their phones away, and do their homework. I'm always struck by the harsh tone of that writing, as if professors have completely forgotten what it's like to be a college student.
Anthony Cowan Jr.'s roots at Maryland run deep. Growing up in Bowie, he attended Gary Williams' summer camp in College Park several times. His father, Anthony Sr., received his master's from the school. His grandmother works in the university's African-American Studies program.
It took nearly two decades but Len Bias, a two-time Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year and likely the most talented player in Maryland basketball history, was inducted into Maryland's athletics Hall of Fame Saturday along with seven others.
If Len Bias could attend his own Hall of Fame ceremony on Friday, he'd do so as a 50-year-old man. That's a heck of a thing to wrap your head around if you grew up as an obsessed ACC basketball fan in the 1980s.
A powerful judicial panel voted Friday to slash sentences for thousands of prison inmates — hundreds of them from Maryland — a significant move toward softening severe punishments for federal drug crimes.
Maryland baseball coach John Szefc paused and looked forward, trying to articulate just how special it was to be part of the Terps' first NCAA tournament team in 43 years. Szefc was just 4 years old when Maryland lost its first two games in Gastonia, N.C., in the 1971 national tourney
University System of Maryland Chancellor William E. Kirwan, who in 12 years on the job helped oversee the rise of some of the state's public universities to national prominence, announced Tuesday he will step down from his position as soon as a successor is found.

You could pen a thick book about the traditions and history of the Maryland and Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse teams, including colorful characters like Henry Ciccarone and Frank Urso, hard-fought games, respect, mutual disdain and a nasty bench-clearing brawl in 1977.
Maryland (16-14, 8-9 ACC) will be looking for a signature win while Virginia (25-5, 16-1) comes in as hot as the then No. 2 Terps were in 2002, when they won their first national championship. The Cavaliers have won 13 straight.
In its prime, Maryland-Duke was a series that emanated heat. While Duke fans professed indifference, the rivalry didn't fade away quietly at Maryland, not even after the school announced it would join the financially lucrative Big Ten beginning this July.
On a night when the current men's and women's teams were introduced to a raucous crowd of more than 12,000, the two legendary coaches and more than two dozen of their former players were the stars of an event that celebrated the past while getting ready for what fans expect to be a breakthrough season under third-year coach Mark Turgeon.
