Behind monster games from both Lonny Baxter and Juan Dixon, the Terrapins knocked off the top-seeded Cardinal 87-73 in Saturday's West Regional final, capping a roller-coaster 25-10 season with the school's first-ever Final Four berth while ending Stanford's season-long sojurn among the nation's elite.
