College Park — Kenneth K. Lam [Sun photographer]College Park -- Barring something crazy and unforeseen happening on Selection Sunday, it should no longer be a question of which tournament the Maryland men's basketball team will wind up in this season. After a complete turnaround in a matter of a month, the guessing game has been elevated to what seed the Terps will receive in the NCAA tournament, and just how far this team can go.

One day after Maryland defeated No. 5 North Carolina at Comcast Center, ESPN's Joe Lunardi had the Terps listed as a No. 6 seed, but independent analyst Jerry Palm said the Terps might go even higher. Palm had Maryland as a No. 4 seed in the mock bracket he was working on yesterday, and said, "You never know, but maybe four would be about the best they could do."
