TOWSON STATE VS. BUCKNELL * WHEN: Tonight, 7:30.
* WHERE: Towson Center.
* RADIO: WCVT-FM 89.7.
* OUTLOOK: Bucknell (7-3), which left the East Coast Conference for the Patriot League last year, has fond memories of the Towson Center, where it is 17-9 overall and 11-3 the last four seasons. The Bison were the only team to beat the Tigers there last season. Bucknell is getting 21.9 points a game from junior guard Bill Courtney. Towson State (4-5) is getting 17.4 points a game from Devin Boyd, 15.2 from Terrance Jacobs and 14.6 from Chuck Lightening.
CLEMSON AT MARYLAND * WHEN: Tomorrow, 1 p.m.
* WHERE: Cole Field House.
* RADIO/TV: WBAL-AM 1090; delayed telecast on Ch. 45 Sunday, 1 p.m.
* OUTLOOK: This is almost certainly the best chance for the Terps (6-4, 0-1 in the ACC) to get a win in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Tigers (8-3, 0-1) look radically different from last year's team, which won the school's first-ever regular-season ACC title and advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16. Three seniors are gone from the perimeter and center Elden Campbell is now riding the bench for the Los Angeles Lakers.
Still on hand, though, is 6-foot-11 senior center Dale Davis, the best low-post player in the ACC. Davis is averaging 20 points and 13.3 rebounds in the face of relentless double-teaming, but he has fouled out of three games. Baltimore's Sean Tyson, a 6-7 senior, has been suspended for violating team rules and has missed the last three games. Clemson won both games last season.
