Today's games

February 18, 1996

Missouri (16-8) at Maryland (12-9)

Site: Cole Field House, College Park

Time: 2 p.m.

TV/Radio: Chs. 2, 7/WBAL (1090 AM)

Outlook: A game with NCAA tournament implications for both teams. Missouri is only 2-8 on the road -- all double-digit losses -- but has beaten Kansas at home. With 676 career wins, coach Norm Stewart is the third-winningest active coach in Division I. The Tigers are 2-0 against Maryland, 9-12 against the ACC. Against common foes, Missouri has beaten George Washington and lost (by 19) to North Carolina State. Maryland beat both teams.

Towson State (14-9) at Hofstra (7-15)

Site: Physical Fitness Center, Hempstead, N.Y.

Time: 4

Outlook: Senior G Scooter Alexander didn't practice last week ,, for personal reasons, didn't play in Friday's 75-56 loss to first-place Drexel, and probably won't play today. The Tigers (10-5 in North Atlantic Conference), who have lost three of their past five, are trying to avenge a 20-point loss to Hofstra last month at home. Friday's loss dropped Towson State into a three-way tie with Boston University and Maine for second place the NAC. Hofstra is 4-11 in the conference.

Florida State (7-16) at Maryland women (11-12)

Site: Cole Field House, College Park

Time: 7:30

Outlook: After losing five straight, the Terps (5-8 in Atlantic Coast Conference) have won three of their past four, including home upsets over Duke and Clemson. Sophomore F Stephanie Cross leads Maryland in scoring (13.3). The Seminoles (2-12 ACC) can clinch last place in the league with a loss tonight.
