For J. Williams, key at free throw line is not thinking

Only one Maryland player has attempted as many free throws this season as freshman forward Jordan Williams, which would seem to make his success rate at the line a fairly relevant topic. Entering today's game against Eastern Kentucky, Williams is...

Vote on the best of the decade

Think Maryland's 2002 men's basketball national title was the best local sports story of the decade? How about the Terrapins' 2006 women's basketball national championship? Where do Juan Dixon, Lonny Baxter and Kristi Toliver stand among the area's best athletes...
