Terrapins at home in Alabama

[MEN'S COLLEGE CUP: Maryland] No. 2 seed Maryland achieved its goal by advancing to its 12th appearance in the Men's College Cup, where it goes up against No. 3 Georgetown Friday in the semifinals at Regions Park in Hoover, Ala. (TV: ESPNU, 5 p.m. ET). Terrapin coach Sasho Cirovski had "Sweet Home Alabama" blare over the loudspeakers after every home win this season.

THREE STARS:
Patrick Mullins, up for the 2012 Hermann Trophy, follows in the footsteps of fellow Louisianan Jason Garey, who won the award in 2005. Mullins leads the Terrapins with 16 goals and 40 points, double any other Maryland player.

Senior John Stertzer has half as many goals as he had in 2011 when he earned All-American honors after a 14-goal season. But his value to the Terrapins goes beyond that as he has mentored a young midfield.

London Woodberry
was one of the first stars to come out of the FC Dallas academy program. The center back has anchored the Terrapin defense that has surrendered less than a goal a game.

NUMBERS GAME:
Maryland leads the nation in scoring with 2.61 goals per match. It's the second time in three years the Terrapins have led the country in scoring.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING:
“The depth we have with our team, and the selflessness and humility that this team has shown, along with the skill and their single-mindedness to make sure we get back to the College Cup has been a source of inspiration and a great joy for me as a coach this year.” -- Cirovski
