Jerrod Mustaf, a 6-foot 10-inch freshman forward who acts as point guard for Maryland, showed some nice outside shooting to go with some sharp ballhandling Saturday night in the UC Irvine Bren Center. And, as it turned out, the Terrapins needed all the offense they could get to hang on for a 69-62 victory over Georgia State in the championship game of the Western Digital Freedom Bowl tournament.

Juan Dixon, Maryland's star guard, was eight years old when Len Bias died and Lefty Driesell was being run out of town. Shernard Long, Georgia State's star guard, was not interested in Driesell's ancient history at Maryland. It was 15 years ago when Driesell left the Terrapins. Put it in the history books and not on the basketball court. Maryland, the No. 3-seeded team, beat Driesell-coached Georgia State, the No. 11-seeded team, 79-60, Saturday in the second round of the NCAA West Regionals.
