UM weekly glance

November 23, 2001|By Gary Lambrecht

Last week: Maryland beat American, 83-53, on Saturday, to improve to 2-1.

The next week: The Terps, who dropped to No. 6 last week, face visiting Delaware State tomorrow, then play host to No. 2 Illinois on Tuesday in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

Of note: Terps coach Gary Williams (above) earned his first victory in College Park over Delaware State, 87-53, on Nov. 25, 1989. Williams should gain his 245th Maryland victory over that same school tomorrow.

Worth watching: The Terps own the nation's longest nonconference home-court winning streak, which should be 79 by Tuesday. That night, Illinois could put the record in serious jeopardy.

By the numbers: Maryland is shooting just 55.6 percent at the free-throw line, and is shooting a healthier 36.8 percent from three-point range.
