Terps continue with fine-tuning

Against VMI, focus is transition defense

COLLEGE PARK -- They've faced the Princeton-style offense of Western Carolina and watched the shot clock wind down Wednesday with almost each of Delaware State's possessions. Now, the Maryland men's basketball team will try to crank up the tempo again this afternoon when it faces Virginia Military Institute (5-5, 0-0 Big South) at 2 p.m. at Comcast Center.

Although the 16th-ranked Terps (9-2, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) have defeated their past three non-conference opponents by a combined 70 points, coach Gary Williams said there is a lesson to be learned from each one, and today it will be transition defense - no easy layups or jump shots allowed.
