The Patriots led by 13 points after the third quarter ended. After She- rando sliced five points off that lead. It was the second quarter that buoyed Washington.

The first championship came just a year later when the Applemen beat Hamlin, 8-0, in the A divi- sion for West Virginia's smallest schools. In 1982, after the growing school moved up to the AA di- vision, Price led Musselman to a second title, this time over Wayne Countypowerhouse Ceredo-Ken- ova High.The next fall, the state title again came down to. a show- down between C=K and Mussel- man, but this time the Wonders prevailed. At the time, the C-K football team was coached by Carl Ward, who formerly held the record for most football wins at a sin- gle school. (Ward, who coached at the school from 1959 to 1988, retired with 244 victories. His re- cord at C-K endures. A decade after his exit, the school was closed, consolidated with two others.) In 1989, Musselman again fin- ished as AA state runner-up and six years later, Musselman won a second AA title in dramatic fash- ion: starting as'the 16th seed and taking out No. 1 South Harrison the first week of the playoffs on its way to the state title, a win over Bluefield. During his 40-year tenure, Price - a native of Paden City along West Virginia's border with Ohio - also led the school to four undefeated regular seasons, in 1980, 1982, 1993 and 1998. Only three others have served as head football coach at Mussel- man since the school opened in 1949, including the school's first football coach Kenneth Waldeck, for whom Musselman's football field is named. Washington FROM PAGE B8 errors and turnovers. With the Pioneers failing to maintain any inroads they made into the Washington leads, the fourth quarter became a long pa- rade of Washington players go- ing to the foul line. The Patriots tried 22 free throws in the last period. They made 12 of them. And they won by 16 points as Maleke Jones went 7-for-10 from the foul line for most of his 12 points. Jerome Jones had his best scoring game with 15 points and steady-scoring Kel- don Bell finished his night with 14 points. Millbrook had been outgunned by 13 points in the first quar- ter. That deficit was never fully erased. And then the Pioneers' all-purpose guard Culbreath went only 5-for-12 from the foul line himself. Washington was 4-1 overall. Its lead had been enough. Its 12 fourth-quarter free throws had been enough. Droughts FROM PAGE B8 triots through the length of the third quarter. There were only three points achieved by the drought-bound Patriots. overs.

Maryland FROM PAGE B8 liams took an unheralded team to the 2002 national championship. His star had risen to a level most coaches only dream about. ~ But Williams still had detrac- tors that pointed to the miniscule graduation rate of his players. When his best player, a sopho- more center, left school for entry into the NBA, Williams decid- ed to retire from coaching while taking a university position as a fund raiser for mostly academic scholarships. Maryland had very few players returning. Turgeon came from success at Texas A&M, a so-called "foot- ball school" where his abilities were recognized but were also playing along the shadowed edg- es because of the Aggies football team and those of Texas, Baylor, and Texas Tech holding court in the same state. Turgeon started at Maryland by trying to convince, the few athletes Williams had recruited for the 2011-12 team to keep true to their commitments and play for the Terrapins. Secondly, Tur- geon went out recruiting on his own and made some scant prog- ress. Last year, his first Maryland team worked through a schedule filled with lesser lights. The pre- conference slate was filled with teams with not much winning history nor drawing power. Turgeon now has four fresh- men in his 10-player rotation. That group has only two seniors. Turgeon's second year in Col- lege Park has the same group of unrecognized opponents on the non-conference schedule. Of the first 13 games this sea- son, 10 of them are at the Com- cast Center and two of them at neutral sites. The only true road game the Terps have seen was a win over Northwestern in Evan- ston, Ill Maryland lost by three points to Kentucky in its opener at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Then it took straight wins at home against Morehead State, LIU Brooklyn, Lafayette, and Georgia Southern. There were victories against Northwestern and later George Mason at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. Continuing its feast against the uriknowns of the Division I world, the Terrapins then saw Maryland Eastern Shore, South Carolina State, and Monmouth at the seats-empty Comcast Center. Stony Brook was beaten last Friday and now Maryland has only Delaware State and Indiana University/Purdue University In- dianapolis remaining before the beginning of the Adantic Coast Conference season in January. Maryland has lost only a three- point verdict to Kentucky. It has won 10 straight since that defeat. Turgeon is not blowing any horns. He's been as low-key as he was when he accepted the Maryland position. Four of Turgeon's starters are underclassmen. His best play- ers have been 7-foot-1 sopho- more Alex Len, a native of the Ukraine, and 6-foot-5 sopho- more Dez Wells, a transfer from Xavier in Ohio. The other Terrapin start- ers have been 6-foot-6 sopho- more Nick Faust, 6-foot-8 senior James Padgett, and 6-foot-3 ju- nior Pe'Shon Howard. All of those players have start- I ed nine of the first 10 games. The other five Terps with some- times generous playing time in the first 10 games are 6-foot-1 fresh- man Seth Allen, 6-foot-9 fresh- man Shaquille Cleare, 6-foot-3 senior Logan Aronhalt, 6-foot-8 freshman Charles Mitchell, and 6-foot-8 freshman Jake Layman. The schedule of nondescript teams won't impress the NCAA tournament selection committee. Or even the NIT for that matter. But Maryland has a team with several versatile players and with a 7-foot-1 athlete as its best chance to win ACC games, it will clear out and clean out teams like Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, Bos- ton College, Miami, and Flori- da State when it sees them in the Comcast Center. Turgeon Would never say it, but one of his predecssors at Mary- land would snort and stomp his foot and bellow "I can coach, baby!" when he heard derisive comments sent his way by the media. Lefty Driesell refused the shadows or the criticism. He was Turgeon's opposite in that regard. Yet, Turgeon can coach. Re- gardless of how soft and squishy his schedule is. presents the Cougar Female Basketball Player: Jennifer Biebel Jennifer is usually one of Jefferson's leading rebounders and is one of the team's better defenders.
