Site: Memorial Hall, Dover, Del.

Time: 7:30

Radio: WTGM (960 AM)

Outlook: The Hawks are coming off Saturday's 79-66 loss at Florida State. Sophomore John Woods (10.2 ppg, 7.0 rpg) led UMES with 15 points and grabbed five rebounds. Ron Christian had seven rebounds. Senior G Aaron McKinney leads UMES at 11.3 ppg. The Hawks have lost two in a row, including a lopsided defeat to Maryland. This is their third straight road game. Delaware State's only win came against Wagner, 64-59, on Dec. 5. Sophomore swingman Brian Parker is averaging 15.0 points and 9.0 rebounds. This is the first game for both teams in the MEAC. This is their 57th meeting. UMES has won the past seven to lead the series, 30-26.

Maryland (6-3) at Georgia Tech (6-7)

Site: The Omni, Atlanta

Time: 9

TV/Radio: ESPN/WBAL (1090 AM)

Outlook: Georgia Tech is reeling with four straight losses and six in its past seven games. The Yellow Jackets lost two winnable games to Bradley (84-82) and Santa Clara (71-66) in the Cable Car Classic in San Jose, Calif., last weekend. Freshman G Stephon Marbury leads the Jackets with 18.2 ppg. The Terps have won three in a row and five of six. They are 4-0 when they shoot 50 percent from the field. In their past three games, they shot a combined 54.5 percent. They need to protect the ball better after losing 19.8 turnovers in nonconference games. On defense, they are forcing 21.4 turnovers a game. Ringleader Johnny Rhodes has a 2.6-1 ratio in steals to turnovers. Coach Gary Williams juggled his rotation in December, but likely will keep Exree Hipp in the starting lineup for now and bring sharpshooter Sarunas Jasikevicius off the bench. Williams is 3-9 against Tech.
