Gary Williams is facing the most adversity at Maryland since he took over the Terps in 1989 under NCAA sanctions.

Those are his words to ESPN.com. Nonetheless, he's relishing the role after Maryland was blitzed in back-to-back games at North Carolina (109-75) and Wake Forest (81-66).

"We've had our ups and downs and been on a good roll of late," Williams said, "but this will be good for me, because I'll dig down and make sure we do everything we can to turn this around."

What's his most pressing concern?

John Gilchrist.
