Maryland coach Gary Williams wants his Terrapins to play the same on the road as when playing at home. That means get the ball inside to Jordan Williams. Jordan Williams made a strong return to his double-double form to lead Maryland’s relentless inside attack and the Terrapins beat Georgia Tech 74-63 on Sunday night. Williams had 21 points and 15 rebounds for Maryland (14-7, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). The Terrapins improved to 3-1 in road conference games and have won three straight overall.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. ? In his first career start, Chris Turner threw for 255 yards, and Lance Ball ran for three touchdowns as Maryland barely held on for a 28-26 victory Saturday over Georgia Tech. Travis Bell sent a 52-yard field goal attempt wide right with 54 seconds remaining. Andrew Gardner was whistled for holding on the previous play, knocking the Yellow Jackets back 10 yards and preventing them from lining up for what would have been a 40-yard try. Turner had three passes of longer than 40 yards in the first half, including the first touchdown pass of his career, a 78-yard strike to Jason Goode.

Basketball standout Nia Josiah had a message she wanted to deliver. She had an attentive audience Wednesday afternoon at Thomas Johnson High School. Josiah, a shooting guard for the Patriots' state title-contending basketball team, signed a letter of intent to play at Georgia Tech in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Friends, family and teammates were on hand to watch. "A lot of people say, 'Why didn't you pick Harvard?,'" Josiah said on the eve of her signing. "Life is about owning your own success.

ATLANTA -- Greivis Vasquez scored 19 points and Maryland held off Georgia Tech at the buzzer for its eighth straight victory over the Yellow Jackets, 57-56 on Sunday night. Georgia Tech had two chances at the win after Eric Hayes missed the first free throw of a 1-and-1 with 16.7 seconds left. Georgia Tech's Lewis Clinch missed on a drive in the lane, but teammate Iman Shumpert chased down the long rebound in the corner and managed to get off a 3-pointer. It was a little long, bouncing high off the rim as the horn sounded.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Maryland made up for a ghastly 30 minutes of basketball by finally being gracious enough to accept the generosity of bumbling Georgia Tech. Eric Hayes scored a season-high 17 points, Greivis Vasquez had 16, and the Terrapins took advantage of 28 turnovers by the Yellow Jackets to pull out a 68-61 victory Saturday. Maryland shot only 32 percent, went 5-for-26 from 3-point range and was outrebounded 49-39. But the Terrapins (12-3, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference)

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The University of Maryland defense relies on football being an open-and-shut case. Its main objective is to find the holes and fill them to prevent opposing teams from running. It is the rallying call of the Terrapins' 4-4-style alignment - "Stop the run. " The philosophy hit a snag on Saturday against Georgia Tech. It left Maryland shopping for answers when the Terps didn't fall into the gaps. "We could do better," Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen said.

bobp@herald-mail.com COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Believe it or not, Maryland's Chris Downs and Georgia Tech had one thing in common on Thursday. Everything was downhill in the second half. The difference, however, is that downhill was a good thing for Downs but the beginning of the end for the Yellow Jackets. Halftime adjustments and offensive line help turned Maryland's senior tailback into a national star in the Terrapins' 34-10 over Georgia Tech, but it was Downs who readjusted his thinking to make himself the offensive catalyst and the Jackets' worst nightmare.

bobp@herald-mail.com COLLEGE PARK, Md. - It's the same, but different. It's different, but the same. As usual, Maryland is facing Georgia Tech in what has become an annual Thursday night matchup for ESPN over the last few years. Last year, the game was filled with bittersweet sentiment and drama which started the Terrapins' charge to the national spotlight. This year's nationally televised version has much of the same elements but for a whole new set of reasons.

To the editor: Despite broad, bipartisan consensus on the need for action, Congress and the Bush administration have failed to address the challenges posed to the competitive position of the United States as a technological and economic leader. Maryland's representatives in Congress are essential to solving this dilemma. Sen.

Even though Gerry Spessard made the record book in 2008, he and the University of Maryland baseball team have suffered through a frustrating season. The 22-year-old Smithsburg High School graduate set a school record with his ninth career triple on April 19 against Georgia Tech. The previous mark of eight was set by Charlie "King Kong" Keller of Frederick, Md., in 1936. Although pleased with the record, the 6-foot-2 junior has been saddled with shin splints and minor stress fractures in his legs all season long.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - At first glance, Chris Turner looks like a budding rocker on American Idol. And to be honest, the University of Maryland's blonde, curly haired quarterback is in the same boat as any of those singing contestants. His fate and immediate future is in the hands of the judges. Even after throwing for 255 yards and a touchdown in his first start and leading the Terrapins to a 28-26 win over Georgia Tech at Byrd Stadium on Saturday, he's still in the final two for the job. It is still down to Turner and opening-day starter Jordan Steffy, who missed Saturday's game with the remnants of a concussion, for the right to be the reigning Terrapin Idol.

On a normal day, Tyler Barrett's life is out of this world, as he explores the boundaries of time and space as an aerospace engineering major at Georgia Tech. But nothing brings Barrett down to earth faster than playing football, which led the 2005 South Hagerstown High School graduate to try and make the Yellow Jackets as a walk-on. "I don't know what I would do without football," Barrett said via telephone from Atlanta. "Some people look at it and say after they are done with high school football, it's time to move on, and they have other things to do. I just love to strap it up and play every day. " In essence, Barrett is living the "Rudy" dream, similar to the movie role Sean Astin played in the story of Daniel E. "Rudy" Ruettiger, who gave his all to walk on and play for Notre Dame.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Life on the football field had been a dream for Stephon Heyer. At 6-foot-6 and 320 pounds, Heyer could do just about anything he wanted as an offensive lineman. It had been that way all the way through high school and his first three years at the University of Maryland. Not even a serious knee injury seemed to sour the sweetness of the dream. Heyer missed the 2005 season to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, but with hard work, came back to man the line for the Terps at the start of the 2006 season.
