Terps at a glance

The week in review

Results

Lost at home to No. 2 Duke, 82-64, Sunday

Won at Virginia, 71-66, last night

Who's hot

Sophomore forward Terence Morris had made 21 straight free-throw attempts before a miss last night against Virginia. Through Wednesday, he led the ACC in field-goal percentage (.628) and was sixth in free-throw percentage (.839).

Who's not

Freshman Juan Dixon went 1-for-12 from three-point range during the Terps' recent three-game homestand. With 22 threes, he still leads the team.

Quotable "We got hurt, obviously, by that game [Duke]." -- Gary Williams, coach

The week ahead

Schedule N.C. State at Cole Field House, Sunday, 1: 30 p.m. at No. 11 North Carolina, Jan. 13, 9 p.m.

What to look for

The Tar Heels, who beat Florida State last night, will have a full week to prepare for the Terps. North Carolina has too much talent around point guard Ed Cota not to give Maryland fits at the Smith Center.

What's at stake N.C. State has one quality win. The North Carolina game should be Maryland's toughest until its second shot at Duke on Feb. 3, and the winner figures to get the early line on second place in the ACC. The Terps will be severely tested in their third game in seven days. Pub Date: 1/08/99
