Will you miss seeing the Terps in the ACC?
The University of Maryland’s Board of Regents on Monday approved a move to the Big Ten Conference, ending nearly 60 years of affiliation with the Atlantic Coast Conference, multiple sources reported. Rutgers is expected to announce Tuesday that it will join the Terps in the Big Ten, the New York Daily News reported. Maryland’s move is the latest in a flurry of conference realignment that has drastically altered the landscape of college athletics in recent years, often disrupting traditional regional rivalries as schools chase increasingly lucrative television contracts. Maryland’s move, which could carry a $50 million exit penalty from the ACC, is considered to be a financial strategy that will bring the school a share of the Big Ten’s …

The Stevenson guard and Westminster native earned his second weekly honor of the season.
Stevenson guard Brett Burrier's 24 points in a 75-70 win over York last week were enough to earn him the Capital Athletic Conference Player of the Week honors, his second such award this season. The 6-foot-6, 205-pound junior, who attended Winters Mill High School in Westminster, grabbed a team-high eight rebounds, was 6-for-10 from the floor, 4-for-5 from three-point range and 8-of-10 from the free throw line in the win, Stevenson's athletics website said. Burrier's performance helped the Mustangs (6-17, 3-11 CAC) to just their third win in the last 13 games. Burrier was previously named player of the week on Nov. 28, after averaging 28 points in two games.

Sam Murray is trying to help establish the women's basketball program at nearby Stevenson University.
As she draws each game’s toughest defensive assignments and attempts to rain down shots on her opponent, Stevenson University guard Sam Murray must be laughing inside. To think, just a few years ago, the junior thought she didn’t want to play basketball anymore. “I just wish I could [always] go to college and play basketball,” Murray said. “I don’t know what I was thinking.” The Reisterstown resident, she with the shooter’s touch and what her coach calls a Division I basketball body, finished her junior year playing basketball at St. Paul’s School for Girls feeling overwhelmed. Just 17 at the time, Murray doesn’t like to say she was burned out. But she stopped looking for colleges that saw her as a student-athlete and focused on those …

The Mustangs' men's lacrosse coach will be inducted into the Greater Baltimore Chapter of the U.S. Lacrosse Hall of Fame.
In his eight years, Stevenson lacrosse coach Paul Cantabene has turned the Mustangs' program into a perennial contender. Stevenson has consistently found itself ranked in the national top 20 in NCAA Division III in recent years, and has made an appearance in the last three NCAA Division III Men's Lacrosse Championship tournaments.
