Morning links: Maryland overwhelms Longwood, as expected
Maryland Coach Gary Williams passed legendary UCLA coach John Wooden for career victories in the Terrapins' 106-52 rout of Longwood on Wednesday night.
Saturday's game against Boston College is pretty much a must-win, but aren't they all at this point if the Terrapins want to make the NCAA tournament? The Eagles defeated Maryland at Comcast Center on Dec. 12 but have lost four of their last five. None of those losses were by less than 12 points.

On the women's side, Kim Rodgers has developed into a clutch player for the 12th-ranked Terrapins, who visit No. 20 Miami tonight.
Elsewhere in the ACC, Duke rallied from 16 points down to beat North Carolina, 79-73.
UNC Chancellor Holden Thorp created a minor stir after Tweeting, "Our students are talking about the future and asking smart questions instead of wasting time sitting in a tent."
Miami's Reggie Johnson made two free throws with four seconds left as the Hurricanes snapped a 13-game ACC road losing streak with a 74-73 win over Wake Forest. Miami has won three straight (against the dregs of the ACC).
