Morgan State (0-0) at Georgia Tech (0-0)
Site: Alexander Memorial Coliseum, Atlanta
Time: 7: 30
Outlook: Morgan returns four starters from a team that went 7-20, including senior forwards Chris Watson and Scott Deas. Graduate student Ira Crawley, a 6-foot-7, 220-pound center, also is back. The Yellow Jackets are led by 6-7 junior F Matt Harpring, an all-ACC pick who averaged 18.6 ppg and 8.1 rpg last year.
Howard (0-0) at Maryland (0-0)
Site: Cole Field House, College Park
Radio: WBAL (1090 AM), WTOP (1500 AM)
Outlook: This should be an easy game for the Terps, who, despite gloomy forecasts in the ACC, have played cohesively in the preseason. Maryland likely will go with its three-guard set, with junior Sarunas Jasikevicius joining sophomores Terrell Stokes and Laron Profit. The Bison are even less experienced than the Terps, starting 6-6 freshman forwards Jermaine Holloway and Xavier Singletary as well as sophomore Jabari Outtz at guard.
