WASHINGTON -- The final buzzer sounded, and Marylands players stormed the court to celebrate an improbable win over neighboring Georgetown. Wholesale Air Max 270 .It didnt matter that it was only the second game of the season, or that neither team was ranked. The Terrapins had just erased a nine-point deficit over the span of 2 1/2 minutes, and it was time to revel in the moment.We just kept fighting, said Maryland guard Melo Trimble, who capped a 22-point performance by sinking two free throws with 7.6 seconds remaining in a 76-75 victory Tuesday night.Georgetown led 68-59 with 2:21 to go before the Terrapins used a game-ending 17-7 run.We beat a great team tonight, Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said. Except for fouling, we really guarded well.Maryland (2-0) limited the Hoyas (1-1) to 16 field goals but was outscored 37-17 at the foul line. The Terps won despite going 7 for 27 from beyond the arc and being whistled for 32 fouls.It was 75-72 when Trimble scored on a drive to get Maryland within a point. Tre Campbell then stepped out of bounds for the Hoyas after being pressured in the back court.This is how crazy basketball is: Im yelling foul at the top of my lungs, and he steps out of bounds, Turgeon said. We were very fortunate tonight.Trimble was subsequently fouled while receiving the long inbound pass, made both foul shots, and Terps freshman Kevin Huerter blocked a driving shot by Jagan Mosely just before the final buzzer.While the Terrapins celebrated, the Hoyas somberly trudged off the court.We have to grow. We have to get better. We have to learn from our mistakes, coach John Thompson III said. Just too many mental errors down at the end.L.J. Peak scored 19 of his 22 points in the second half for Georgetown and Rodney Pryor added 14.THE RIVALRY RENEWEDMaryland beat the Hoyas 75-71 last season and, with this victory, leads the series 38-27. This marked the first time Georgetown hosted Maryland since the 1993-94 season, even though the schools are only 20 miles apart.FAB FRESHMENMaryland received a huge contribution from its first-year players.

He did what good players do -- he made plays.BIG PICTUREMaryland: The Terps showed vast improvement from their disappointing showing against American, providing evidence that this freshman-laden team will get better as the season progresses.Georgetown: The Hoyas received an ideal tune-up for the rigorous, physical play that lies ahead in the Big East. Georgetowns 37 for 42 showing at the foul line showed it knows how to take advantage of an overly aggressive defense. They do, however, need work at closing games.UP NEXTMaryland resumes play Thursday night at home against St. Marys (Md.) College, a Division III school that competes in the Capital Athletic Conference.Georgetown faces visiting Arkansas State on Thursday night at McDonough Arena, the teams on-campus facility. Cheap Authentic Air Max 95 .J. -- Marshawn Lynch said Thursday it will be good to get back to football after the Seattle quiet talking running back wrapped up his final mandatory media session of Super Bowl week. Cheap Air Max 90 China . Reassurance came from Paul Tesori, his caddie and close friend whose newborn son is in intensive care in a Florida hospital.

The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season. "It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said. NORTON, Mass. -- Ryan Moore cant remember the last time he played six straight weeks on the PGA Tour.Its working so well, he might consider doing it more often.Everyone knew that golf was going to be loaded with big events at the end of the year, so Moore decided to pace himself and play often during the end of the year. He wasnt in the Olympics. Hes not even thinking about the Ryder Cup.This is all about the FedEx Cup, and Moore said he could think of 10 million reasons why hed like to win it.The $10 million payoff is still 11 rounds away spread over the next 23 days in three states. Even so, Moore had another reason to believe he was trending in the right direction. He opened with a bogey-free round of 6-under 65 and shared the lead with James Hahn in the Deutsche Bank Championship.Saturday typically is known as moving day on the PGA Tour, except at the TPC Boston. With the traditional Labor Day finish, Saturday could be the end of the season for several players.THE CUT: The top 70 in the FedEx Cup after this week advance to the BMW Championship at Crooked Stick, the third playoff event.Anyone outside the top 70 -- or near the top 70 -- is most likely done for the season if they miss the cut.Two players getting the most attention are Jim Furyk (No. 84) and Steve Stricker (No. 97). Both opened with a 4-under 67 and were two shots out of the lead, and they would appear to be safe to make the cut. That would be the first step. Then, they would need a high finish to advance.Thats still better off than Patton Kizzire, who opened with a 78; K.J. Choi, who shot 74; or Jason Bohn, who shot 72. All of them are outside the cut line, and all are outside the top 70 in the FedEx Cup.THE LEADERS: Moore had been trending in the right direction. Hahn has not.Hahn missed the cut eighth straight times before he won the Wells Fargo Championship. Since then, Hahn has failed to crack the top 40 in seven straight events, and he missed the cut in his last two tournaments.I accomplished my goal. I won another PGA Touur event, I made it to the playoffs, I kept my job for next year, Hahn said. Air Max Plus Tn Fake. Theres a lot of positives that come out of this depending on who you ask.Moore, meanwhile, won the John Deere Classic three weeks ago and tied for seventh in The Barclays. He is No. 11 in the FedEx Cup, and a good performance this week would earn him a trip to East Lake for the Tour Championship.PHILS FOLLIES: Phil Mickelson talked passionately about his desire to finish strong in the FedEx Cup playoffs, particularly because he was leading the PGA Tour in adjusted scoring average. If he could keep that lead over the next three weeks, he would win the Vardon Trophy for the first time in his career.Jason Day is right behind him. So is Dustin Johnson.Mickelson didnt help his cause when he opened with a 75, due largely to one hole -- and one decision. He missed the green left on the par-4 sixth, the ball in deep grass inside a water hazard. Mickelson tried to get it out -- not once, but twice -- and the grass was too thick. He then took a penalty drop and made a quadruple-bogey 8.EYE ON THE RYDER CUP: U.S. captain Davis Love III will make three picks for his Ryder Cup team on Sept. 12, and he said every American at the Deutsche Bank is on his radar. Then again, Mickelson said it was obvious without naming names who three of the picks would be.So does form matter?J.B. Holmes sure hopes so. He finished 10th in the standings -- the top eight made the team -- and opened with a 67. So did Jim Furyk, an assistant captain who is 15th in the standings despite missing four months of the season recovering from wrist surgery.DAY SCARE: Jason Day opened with a 70, and then came the real stress. He learned his wife and two children were involved in a traffic incident when their car was struck by a bus. Ellie Day was taken to the hospital as a precaution, though he reported everyone was doing fine. ' ' '
