Terps at a glance

January 22, 1999|By Paul McMullen

The week in review


Won at home over Georgia Tech, 77-62, Tuesday

Who's hot

Terence Morris continues to be among the most productive forwards in the Atlantic Coast Conference. He made 17 of 27 shots in the past two games.

Who's not

Steve Francis is bogged down in the Terps' half-court offense. He hit just seven of his 22 attempts in wins over North Carolina and Georgia Tech.

Quotable "He definitely is learning. He's been great for us in what he's done so far." -- Coach Gary Williams on Francis.

The week ahead


At Clemson, Sunday (4 p.m.) Vs. Florida State, Wednesday (8 p.m.)

What to look for

After its unfocused victory over Georgia Tech, Maryland should have no difficulty getting up for Clemson, where none of its players has ever won. Tigers guard Terrell McIntyre has been troubled by gimmick defenses.

What's at stake

Only Maryland's best 20-game record ever. The Terps have the chance to be 18-2 for the first time in the program's history. They're also riding their first four-game ACC regular-season winning streak in four years.
