On a dank, wet day at Lincoln Financial Field, the Temple football team left the stadium in a fittingly gloomy mood after another losing effort. Facing Maryland yesterday before 11,311 fans, the Owls watched the Terrapins play shutout ball after an early deficit, and lost, 38-7. It was Temple's sixth defeat in as many outings this season. "It's tough for any team being 0-6," said linebacker Ryan Gore, a George Washington High graduate. "But, it's all about the next game. We can't go 6-0 now. We just want to end the season on a good note.

The Maryland football team will visit Temple today fresh off the kind of victory that can change a season. The Terrapins (3-2), who dropped consecutive games to Clemson and West Virginia last month, rolled past Virginia, 45-33, at home last week for their second straight victory. The Cavaliers were ranked 19th at the time. Did the conquest alter the season? "I think it's too early to say that," Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen said. "You have to see how the rest of the season goes.

When Temple set the schedule for today's nonconference game at the Liacouras Center against defending NCAA champion Maryland, it presented a homecoming for two Terrapins. More an event than a game, it will bring Cheltenham High graduate Laura Harper and Willingboro High's Crystal Langhorne back to the area for the first time as collegians. The two junior post players were important keys in a major rebuilding effort under coach Brenda Frese that led to last season's thrilling 78-75 overtime victory against Atlantic Coast Conference rival Duke in the NCAA title game in Boston.

Midway through the first half, some roaring claps of thunder above the Georgia Dome startled many of the 53,378 watching the high-level hoops Maryland and Kansas were treating them to in the second game of last night's Final Four doubleheader at the Georgia Dome. From long distance, Maryland's all-American guard, Juan Dixon, was dampening Kansas' national title hopes by raining soft jump shots. And somewhere above the rim, the Terrapins' 6-foot-10 10 Chris Wilcox, the least decorated among the group of superb post players jostling for space around the basket, was startling the Jayhawks with dunks and blocked shots.

Boston College coach Al Skinner looked at the stat sheet and shook his head. The No. 6 Eagles had just lost their Atlantic Coast Conference debut, falling to 21st-ranked Maryland, 73-71, last night, and Skinner was asked about his team's 5-for-15 performance at the foul line. "We could have made more," he said, "but you're not going to win many games when the other team makes more free throws than you take - especially a team like ours, which is pretty aggressive going to the basket.

This was supposed to be the year Maryland made a stand at home against Duke. The fourth-ranked Terrapins managed to stay even with their Atlantic Coast Conference rivals for 20 minutes yesterday. Then, No. 2 Duke, led by Elton Brand and Trajan Langdon, pulled away to a surprisingly easy 82-64 victory before a stunned sellout crowd at Cole Field House in College Park, Md. The addition of stellar guard Steve Francis to an already solid frontcourt had the Terrapins thinking that they could end a skid of 11 losses in 13 home games against Duke, including a 32-point lashing exactly one year earlier.

With a bunch of young players needing a bolt of confidence before the start of a tough conference schedule, La Salle didn't need to run into a team with the talent and athleticism of the University of Maryland. La Salle coach Speedy Morris likes a tough non-conference schedule to get things going in the right direction. But last night the Explorers got lost, dropping a 93-76 decision to the Terrapins before 3,478 at the Civic Center. The Terrapins (4-1) beat up the 2-2 Explorers inside, with their starting front line outscoring La Salle's, 56-22.

During the time-out, Maryland coach Gary Williams started diagramming the play, the most crucial of the Terrapins' season. Williams did what any coach would do. With 34 seconds remaining against Connecticut in the NCAA East Regional final, and with 14 seconds left on the shot clock, he told his point guard, Steve Blake, to look for sweet-shooting Juan Dixon coming off a screen or muscle man Lonny Baxter inside. The two stars had already combined for 56 points last night. Blake cut off his coach.

Maryland is about to take over the penthouse in women's basketball, but it took a full night's work against North Carolina for the Terrapins to earn the keys. The No. 3 Terrapins (14-1 overall, 4-0 league), who upset No. 1 Virginia on Wednesday in Charlottesville, were tested the whole game by the Tar Heels (12-2, 3-2) before emerging with a 72-68 victory in an Atlantic Coast Conference game last night. With the news that No. 2 Tennessee was upset by No. 9 Mississippi, 80-78, in overtime yesterday, the Terrapins are expected to be the new No. 1 team when the next coaches' poll is announced, tomorrow.

Defending NCAA women's basketball champion Maryland had a week to stew over a loss to Duke last Saturday that knocked the Terrapins from the top of the polls and the ranks of the unbeaten. Then they took the floor last night and smoked Atlantic Coast Conference rival Virginia, 95-68, in front of an animated crowd of 11,118 at the Comcast Center. The No. 3-ranked Terrapins (19-1, 3-1 ACC) used the duo of Laura Harper and Crystal Langhorne to dominate the inside, while Kristi Toliver continued her attack from the outside.

TRENTON - They were once abundant in New Jersey, especially in the early 20th century. Many thousands of northern diamondback terrapins lived in the brackish waters of the state's coastal marshes and estuaries. But aggressive overharvesting over the last year has prompted New Jersey officials to immediately end the commercial harvest season, nearly a month ahead of time. The action - part of an administrative order signed this week by state Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Martin - also calls for tougher enforcement against illegal harvesting.

Imhotep Charter coach Albie Crosby says there's a lot more to D.J. Moore than his route-running skills, strong hands, deceptive speed, and physical style of play. "The kid's personality is like a magnet," he said. "His smile makes you want to be around him. He captivates you. " Moore, a 6-foot, 195-pound senior wide receiver, plans to sign a letter of intent to play football at Maryland on Wednesday as part of national signing day. In 12 games last season, while earning Inquirer first-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania honors, the eye-catching leaper made 35 receptions for 1,012 yards and 16 touchdowns.

STATE COLLEGE - On Sept. 9, the streets of downtown State College were swarmed with chanting and smiling students, celebrating the lifting of Penn State's bowl ban. Over the next couple weeks, the Nittany Lions channeled that energy and came away with two victories, pushing their record to a spotless 4-0. The first 4 weeks of the 2014 season jolted the Penn State community with buzzing hope. But since then, the mood at Penn State - and the play on the gridiron - has taken a 180. Four consecutive losses since starting undefeated have the Lions in a precarious position; the last time a Penn State team went four games without a win was in 2004, when the Lions finished 4-7. After losing 20-19 in sloppy fashion to Maryland on Saturday, the Lions (4-4, 1-4 Big Ten)

STATE COLLEGE - Penn State-Maryland isn't a rivalry by any stretch of the imagination, but it has potential. The Nittany Lions and the Terrapins play in bordering states, compete for the much of the same recruits, have past connections on each coaching staff, and now will play each other every year in the Big Ten's East Division. But one thing is holding this pairing back from becoming a game worth looking forward to: winning on both sides. And for that, don't blame Penn State.

This is the type of extended homecoming that Zack Steffen was hoping for. The Maryland goalie will be concluding his freshman soccer season by playing in the College Cup championship game against Notre Dame at 3 p.m. Sunday at PPL Park in Chester. Not only is Steffen a graduate of Downingtown West, but he is a product of the Union youth academy. He estimates that 20 to 30 friends and family members were at the 2-1 semifinal win Friday over rival Virginia. Steffen said even more local supporters will be there Sunday.

It's a formula that has produced staggering success during the last four seasons for Maryland's soccer team. When senior Patrick Mullins scores at least one goal, the Terrapins usually win. Mullins scored twice as Maryland defeated rival Virginia, 2-1, in Friday's NCAA tournament semifinal at PPL Park. The fifth-seeded Terrapins (17-3-5) will meet ACC foe Notre Dame in the College Cup championship at 3 p.m. Sunday. No. 8 Virginia ended its season at 13-6-5. Mullins has 46 career goals at Maryland, which is second on the school's all-time list.

Jared Nickens arrived at last year's Reebok Classic Breakout with some holes in his game and something to prove. The 6-foot-6 swingman is playing a little looser in this year's camp, a scholastic showcase of more than 100 of the country's top high school players at Philadelphia University this week. The difference? Having committed to Maryland in June, Nickens knows where his future lies, and he isn't out to impress the numerous college coaches in attendance at the Gallagher Athletic Center.
