COLLEGE PARK -- Five days after an emotional Maryland basketball team learned its place in the postseason was in the less-prestigious National Invitation Tournament, disappointment still lingered at Comcast Center.

Manhattan @Maryland NIT, today, 11 a.m., ESPN, 1300 AM, 105.7 FM Line: Maryland by 12 1/2
