COLLEGE PARK, Md. Maryland added a physical presence to its roster when power forward Bambale Osby joined the Terrapins 2006 recruiting class. The 6-foot-8, 250-pound sophomore played last season at Paris (Texas) Junior College and will have two seasons of eligibility at Maryland. Osby is a physical inside player who is an excellent rebounder and strong finisher. "Bambale has the ability to be an inside scorer," said Maryland coach Gary Williams. "Hopefully, he will help improve our ability to generate offense from the post position.

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.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- There's little mystery about who gets the ball in crunch time at Florida State: Toney Douglas. The senior guard scored eight of his 25 points in overtime to lead Florida State to a 76-73 win over Maryland on Saturday. "Toney's always coming through for us in the clutch," coach Leonard Hamilton said after surviving a late Maryland rally. "This is life in the ACC. " Douglas, who had just five points at halftime, scored the Seminoles first seven points of the overtime.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Desperate to get back to .500 in the Atlantic Coast Conference, Maryland played with a sense of urgency against Virginia Tech. "We knew this was a huge game for us," guard Eric Hayes said. "We just came out with a lot of energy and played as hard as we could. " The result was arguably Maryland's best overall performance of the season. Landon Milbourne scored 23 points, Greivis Vasquez had 17 and the Terrapins never trailed in an 83-73 victory Saturday.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- This Duke-Maryland game was far closer than the previous matchup and much more indicative of one of college basketball's great rivalries. The result, however, was identical. Gerald Henderson scored 19 points, Jon Scheyer hit a key 3-pointer with 1:54 left, and No. 7 Duke spoiled the Terrapins' upset bid with a 78-67 victory Wednesday night. Eager to avenge an 85-44 loss to the Blue Devils last month and build on Saturday's win over then-No. 3 North Carolina, the Terrapins forged a tie with 5:44 left.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Under different circumstances, Maryland might have been bitterly disappointed to end its season with a lopsided defeat. The Terrapins displayed no shame Saturday when they walked off court following an 89-70 loss to Memphis in the second round of the NCAA tournament. The setback did nothing to detract from what they had accomplished to that point, and each player knew the situation could have been much worse. After all, their final game didn't take place in the NIT. Maryland seemed destined to miss the NCAA tournament for the fourth time in five years before mounting a late surge that netted a No. 10 seed in the West Regional.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- A year ago, Gary Williams took a small Maryland team with only one senior to the second round of the NCAA tournament. Before he got there, the fiery coach endured a home loss to Morgan State, a 41-point thrashing at Duke and harsh criticism from columnists and fans for supposedly allowing the program to deteriorate since it won the national championship in 2002. Come March, Williams was completely vindicated. "That was one of the most rewarding teams that I've ever coached," he said recently.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Cal's Jerome Randle is a blur on the court, makes 3-pointers like they're layups, plays with a fearlessness bred from the playgrounds of Chicago. Greivis Vasquez is a fiery competitor from Venezuela, a flashy playmaker who occasionally catches teammates off guard with no-look passes, the key reason Maryland is in the NCAA tournament instead of the NIT. Put these two dynamic players on the same court and it's bound to be an entertaining first-round game today in the West Regional.
