Tonight's Games

January 10, 1995

LOYOLA (4-7) at MAINE (3-6)

Site: Alfond Sports Arena, Orono, Maine

Time: 7

Outlook: The Greyhounds have lost three straight after an 86-70 loss to Delaware on Saturday. B. J. Pendleton leads Loyola in scoring (16.4) and rebounding (5.9). Darius Johnson is averaging 13.4 points for the Greyhounds. Maine ended a five-game losing streak with a 62-52 victory over Bucknell on Wednesday. Maine is led by 6-foot junior G Casey Arena (19.7 ppg) and 6-6 senior F Ken Barnes (13.8 ppg, 6.8 rpg).

MARYLAND (11-3) at FLORIDA STATE (6-4)

Site: Tallahassee-Leon County Civic Center, Tallahassee, Fla.

Time: 8

TV/Radio: Chs. 54, 50/WBAL (1090 AM)

Outlook: The Terrapins' five-game winning streak ended Saturday night against North Carolina in Chapel Hill. The Seminoles, after a fairly impressive start, have lost their first two ACC games. Maryland will be looking for its third win here in four years. Maryland has had trouble against quick teams that like to run and gun, as Arizona State did earlier in the season and the Seminoles will probably do tonight. This is the first time Maryland has come here as the clear favorite, and Florida State has to show it can stop Joe Smith (20.1 ppg, 9.6 rpg, 3.1 rpg), who had 23 points and 20 rebounds against it in the first of two Terps victories last season, with 14 and 11 in 25 foul-filled minutes in the second. The Seminoles also could have their hands full with Johnny Rhodes (15.6 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 4.1 apg, 3.2 spg), who had 37 points in Maryland's first two ACC games. Rhodes did a good job last season against Florida State's Bob Sura (21.7 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 41 percent from the field), holding the 6-5 guard to 8-for-25 shooting, including 2-for-12 on three-point shots.
