Maryland outscores Bellarmine in lacrosse
Senior attackmen Travis Reed and Ryan Young each scored three goals as Maryland defeated Bellarmine, 12-8, at Byrd Stadium on Monday afternoon. The goals for Reed were particularly welcome: They broke his drought of 172 minutes without a goal.
Reed was held without a goal in the second half of the opener and against Georgetown, Duke and in the first quarter against the Knights (2-3).
"The past two games I have been really [angry] at myself for how I've been playing," Reed said. "I'm a shooter and finisher, and when I get those shots I expect to make them."
Reed scored his goals in a 6-0 run in the second quarter for the eighth-ranked Terrapins (3-1). His final goal, with one second left in the half, gave Maryland a 9-2 lead.
Sophomore goalie Dillon Ward finished with 16 saves for the Knights. The past two seasons, Maryland had beaten the Knights by five goals; another five-goal margin seemed likely until Bellarmine junior Austin Bright scored with 25 seconds remaining for the final score.

Texas Tech fired Pat Knight, ending a disappointing three-year run for a coach who failed to lead the Red Raiders to the NCAA basketball tournament after taking over for his famous father.
Knight will coach the Red Raiders at this week's Big 12 tournament and then step down, school spokesman Blayne Beal said.
Knight is 50-60 in his first Division I coaching job and his third full year as head coach. He had only one winning season (19-16 in 2009-10) at Texas Tech after taking over for Bob Knight at midseason in February 2008. . . .
Ohio State football Coach Jim Tressel was informed that some of his players had sold memorabilia to the owner of a tattoo parlor more than eight months before the school said it was made aware of improper transactions, Yahoo Sports reported.
The Web site, citing an unidentified source, reported Tressel received information as early as April 2010 that players were selling items to Edward Rife, who owns Fine Line Ink Tattoos in Columbus.
