    fully awake for their late morning tip-off against in-state foe Mount St.
    Marys.They had turnovers, breakdowns on defense and uncharacteristically missed
    open shots. However, it didnt take long for the No. 6 Terrapins to fix the
    problem. Brionna Jones finished with 18 points and 10 rebounds to help No. 6
    Maryland rout the Mountaineers 106-42 on Friday.Ieshia Small had 14 points off
    the bench for Maryland (3-0). Shatori Walker-Kimbrough, Kaila Charles and Jenna
    Staiti added 10 points apiece for the Terrapins, who shot 58 percent from the
    field.I thought we had a really slow, sluggish start, Frese said. Our shots
    werent falling and we werent as crisp as we usually are. The second half was a
    much better indicator of how we want to play for 40 minutes.The Mountaineers
    (1-2) trailed only 18-13 at the end of the first quarter. But the Terrapins used
    their size to take control. The 6-foot-3 Jones scored 12 points to boost the
    lead to 34-18 with 3:37 left in the second quarter.We have a lot of weapons on
    our team, Jones said. Anybody can come off the bench and score. Were just going
    to keep playing our brand of basketball.The Mountaineers tried to stay in the
    game by hoisting three-pointers, but they went 3 of 21 and trailed 37-20 at the
    break. They finished 7 of 32 from behind the arc.A pair of free throws and layup
    by freshman Destiny Slocum boosted the margin to 57-25 midway through the third
    quarter, and the only uncertainty was whether Maryland would score 100 or more
    points for the third straight game.A 3-pointer by Sarah Myers gave Maryland a
    100-39 lead late in the fourth quarter.Katrice Dickson led Mount St. Marys with
    12 points.I thought we played really well in the first quarter, Mountaineers
    coach Bryan Whitten. We became very undisciplined on the offensive side in the
    second quarter. You give up 37 points in the first half, you think youre in a
    good spot.BIG PICTUREMount St. Marys: The Mountaineers started four guards to
    play uptempo and put their best shooters in the floor. The strategy worked early
    before the Terrapins did a better job protecting the ball and wearing them
    down.Maryland: Frese is pleased with the quick start of her team, which has
    averaged 104 points in three games against much weaker programs. Her deep roster
    will help create matchup problems for most opponents this season.FAB
    FRESHMANMaryland freshmen Destiny Slocum and Kaila Charles were in the starting
    lineup for the third consecutive game. Both played well enough to maintain those
    spots. Charles scored in double figures for the third time, and Slocum has
    seamlessly run the plays at point guard.FINDING A HOMEThe Mountaineers Mikal
    Johnson, a graduate transfer, is playing for her third college program. Johnson
    played two seasons at Rider, where she was a MAAC All-Rookie Team selection, and
    then one year at Liberty. After scoring in double figures in each of the first
    two games, Johnson had three points against Maryland.UP NEXTMt. St. Marys: The

    Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of

    third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he

    Barcelona to 14 of 19 possible titles in four seasons, is returning to Camp
    Nou.This time he will be at the helm of Manchester City as he faces his boyhood
    club in the Champions League on Wednesday.But how does the best of the teams
    Guardiola coached from 2008-2012 stack up against the current Barcelona
    side?Here is a comparison of Barcelonas current players with those led by
    Guardiola in 2008-09, the team that started the clubs winning era by becoming
    the first Spanish club to win the Champions League, Spanish league and Copa del
    Rey in the same season.Barcelona repeated that rare feat of winning the treble
    of titles two seasons ago under present coach Luis
    Enrique.---FORWARDSMessi/Etoo/Henry (2008-09) vs. Messi/Suarez/Neymar (now)A
    budding star at 21 years old, Lionel Messi fully blossomed under Guardiola.The
    Argentina star won his first of a record five Ballon dOr awards in 2009, after
    having scored important goals such as his double in a historic 6-2 win at Real
    Madrid and the second goal in a 2-0 win to beat Manchester United in the
    Champions League final.Guardiola got one more superb season from striker Samuel
    Etoo, and squeezed out some of the last vintage goals that Thierry Henry had to
    offer.Hard to top that, right?Just look at Messis present partners in
    attack.With Messi moving away from a pure scorer to becoming both scorer and
    playmaker, Luis Suarez and Neymar have proven to be perfect fits up front.
    Suarez is the voracious goal-taker that Messi needed to focus on orchestrating,
    while Neymars dribbling skills and speed are almost unstoppable. The trio broke
    scoring records in each of the last two seasons.ADVANTAGE: Luis Enriques current
    attack.---MIDFIELDXavi/Toure/Iniesta (2008-09) vs. Rakitic/Busquets/Iniesta
    (now)Both teams enjoy the devilry of Andres Iniesta, but the 2008-09 side had
    both Yaya Toure and an upstart Sergio Busquets sharing time in front of the
    defense, as opposed to the current teams reliance on Busquets as a holding
    midfielder.ddddddddddddThe major difference, however, is the downgrade from Xavi
    Hernandez to Ivan Rakitic.Rakitic is more athletic and a better tackler than
    Xavi, but that cannot trump Xavis vision, poise and control of the match. The
    World Cup winner was Guardiolas on-pitch general of a possession-based passing
    attack that bewildered opponents.In other words, its a no-brainer.ADVANTAGE:
    Guardiolas 2008-09 midfield.---DEFENSEDani Alves/Puyol/Pique/Abidal (2008-09)
    vs. Roberto/Pique/Mascherano/Alba (now)Always at the service of Messi, Xavi and
    Iniesta, Barcelonas defense under Guardiola was easy to overlook.But that
    2008-09 team enjoyed Dani Alves and Eric Adibal in their prime, a fully fit
    Carles Puyol before he was diminished by injuries, and a Gerard Pique hungry to
    come into his own.Pique now anchors a back line that is under transition.Jordi
    Alba offers blistering pace on the left flank, but its other two positions are
    in flux.Sergi Roberto, a converted midfielder, has impressed as Dani Alves
    replacement so far, while the other central defender position is in dispute
    between an aging Javier Mascherano and newcomer Samuel Umtiti.ADVANTAGE:
    Guardiolas 2008-09 defense.---GOALKEEPER: Valdes (2008-09) vs. Ter Stegen
    (now)Marc-Andre Ter Stegen has just inherited the full-time goalkeeping
    responsibilities from Claudio Bravo. Despite his passing skills and ability to
    make spectacular saves, the German needs to improve his decision making to reach
    the level of Victor Valdes from 2008-09.ADVANTAGE: Guardiolas 2008-09
    goalkeeper.---CONCLUSION:Even though this Barcelona side should be favored over
    City, it has a way to go to equal the overall excellence of Guardiolas first
