Today's games

February 24, 1996

Maryland (14-9) at Clemson (15-8)

Site: Littlejohn Coliseum, Clemson, S.C.

Time: Noon

TV/Radio: Ch. 54/WBAL (1090 AM)

Outlook: Point G Duane Simpkins returns to Maryland's lineup after a three-game suspension. The Terps went 2-1 with Terrell Stokes and Laron Profit filling in. Stokes averaged seven assists in those three games and Profit 3.3. A victory would give Maryland a 4-4 road record in the ACC. Rodney Elliott is the hottest Terp, hitting 12 of his last 13 shots over two games. Maryland beat the Tigers, 65-60, on Jan. 24 in College Park, forcing 17 turnovers. The Terps are 6-6 in the ACC, tied with Duke for fourth place, and Clemson (5-8) is sixth.

Delaware (14-11) at Towson State (15-10)

Site: Towson Center

Time: 1 p.m.

Radio: WTMD (89.7 FM)

Outlook: Towson State fell out of a three-way tie for second place in the North Atlantic Conference with Wednesday's 81-73 loss at Delaware. The Tigers are 11-6 in the NAC; Delaware is 10-7. This is the last regular-season game for both teams.

Loyola (10-13) at Iona (19-5)

Site: Mulcahy Center, New Rochelle, N.Y.

Time: 2 p.m.

Radio: WCAO (600 AM) delayed broadcast at 7:30

Outlook: Loyola (7-5 in the MAAC) dropped into a three-way tie for third place in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference with Thursday night's 70-59 home loss to Fairfield. Iona is in first place at 9-3. This is the last regular-season game for the Gaels, who defeated Loyola last month, 87-62.

Lehigh (4-21) at Navy (13-11)

Site: Alumni Hall, Annapolis

Time: 3 p.m.

Radio: WNAV (1430 AM)

Outlook: If Navy (8-3 in Patriot League) and Colgate both win today and Bucknell loses, Navy and Colgate would flip a coin for the No. 1 seeding in the league tournament. If Bucknell, Navy and Colgate all lose, there would be a four-way tie for first, but the Midshipmen would be the top seed because they're the only team to sweep fifth-seeded Lafayette. And there are other scenarios that could drop Navy as low as third. Navy, which has won three of its past four, is led by Michael Heary at 11.6 ppg. Rashawne Glenn leads Lehigh (2-9 league) at 15.6 ppg.

Howard (7-18) at Coppin State (16-9)

Site: Coppin Center

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: Coppin State moved back into a first-place tie with South Carolina State in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, and extended its home winning streak to 40 games, after Thursday night's 73-70 victory over the Bulldogs. Junior F Terquin Mott (19.4 ppg, 7.4 rpg) had 19 points and 11 rebounds. Junior F Reggie Welch was suspended by coach Fang Mitchell for "philosophical differences," but could play tonight. The Eagles are 13-2 in the MEAC with only this game remaining before the tournament. If they finish tied with S.C. State, the Bulldogs would get the top seeding. Coppin had beaten Howard (6-9 in MEAC) seven straight games before losing in January, 63-62.

Morgan State (7-19) at UMES (10-15)

Site: Tawes Gymnasium, Princess Anne

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Radio: WEAA (88.9 FM)

Outlook: Because it's on probation and not allowed to play in the conference tournament, Morgan State (6-9 MEAC) closes out its season tonight. The Fighting Hawks are 5-10 in the MEAC and have lost nine of their past 10.

Marist (20-4) at Mount St. Mary's (18-6)

Site: Knott Arena, Emmitsburg

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Radio: WQSI (820 AM)

Outlook: A win tonight will move the Mountaineers closer to the No. 1 seeding in next week's Northeast Conference tournament and home-court advantage throughout. The Mountaineers, winners of 12 in a row, are 14-2 in the NEC and one game ahead of Marist and Monmouth with one game left after tonight.

UMBC (4-21) at Coastal Carolina (5-19)

Site: Kimbel Gymnasium, Conway, S.C.

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: This regular-season finale matches the teams with the worst records in the Big South Conference. UMBC (2-11) shot just 34 percent from the field in Thursday night's 68-49 loss to North Carolina-Greensboro. The Chanticleers are 1-12.
