The week in review

Results

Beat No. 18 UCLA, 70-54, and No. 20 Pittsburgh, 87-52, to win the Puerto Rico Shootout.

Beat unranked Wake Forest, 92-69, last night in ACC opener.

Who's hot

In the second half of the UCLA game and against Pittsburgh, junior college transfer Steve Francis made 13 of his 18 field-goal attempts, 72.2 percent.

Who's not

Senior center Obinna Ekezie shot just 25 percent (4-for-16) in Puerto Rico, dropping his field-goal percentage to .475 before last night's 19-point outburst.

The week ahead

Schedule

No. 5 Stanford in semifinals of BB&T Classic Sunday (1 p.m.) at MCI Center.

Consolation (6 p.m.) or championship (8:30) against DePaul or George Washington Monday.

What's at stake

Only the possibility of Maryland's first No. 1 ranking ever. Tomorrow, top-ranked Connecticut plays No. 9 Michigan State. If the Terps can take care of business close to home
