Tonight's games

January 24, 1996

Army (4-11) at Navy (8-8)

Site: Alumni Hall, Annapolis

Time: 7:30

Radio: WNAV (1430 AM)

Outlook: The Midshipmen (3-1 Patriot League) will be looking to rebound from an 89-67 trouncing by Colgate on Saturday. Sophomore F Eddie Lucas has taken over the team scoring lead (11.4 ppg). Under Don DeVoe, Navy has won its last eight meetings with Army. The Cadets (1-3 Patriot) rallied from an 18-point second-half deficit to beat Lafayette. Senior guard Mark Leuking, who averaged 24.4 ppg last year, has slipped to 17.5 ppg.

No. 18 Clemson (12-2) at Maryland (8-6)

Site: Cole Field House, College Park

Time: 8

Radio: WBAL (1090 AM)

Outlook: Clemson (3-2 in ACC) started four freshmen in a 55-41 upset of Wake Forest on Sunday. Among them were point guard Terrell McIntyre, who played 40 minutes and scored 20 points, and Andrius Jurkunas and Tony Christie, who played last season at St. John's Prospect Hall in Frederick. Maryland (1-3 ACC) created its own youth movement in a 77-74 overtime win against North Carolina State. Obinna Ekezie and Terrell Stokes, both freshmen, and sophomore Sarunas Jasikevicius all made major contributions behind junior Keith Booth. Even though Exree Hipp had another subpar game, don't expect coach Gary Williams to make any changes in the starting lineup tonight.

Maryland women (8-7) at No. 7 Virginia (14-3)

Site: University Hall, Charlottesville, Va.

Time: 7:30

Outlook: Since beating Virginia 67-65 three years ago, the Terps (2-3 ACC) have lost eight straight and nine of the past 10 to the Cavaliers (5-1 ACC), who have righted themselves after losing to Clemson to start league play. Virginia F Wendy Palmer, last year's ACC Player of the Year, has seen her scoring fall (15.3 ppg), but leads the ACC in rebounding (11.4). Junior G Tora Suber leads Virginia in scoring (15.4 PPG). For Maryland, which dropped a 66-63 decision to co-leader North Carolina Sunday night, G Sonia Chase (McDonogh) and F Stephanie Cross are among the league leaders in scoring and steals.
