Play It Again

December 08, 2008|By Bill Ordine

BB&T slide ends

Before last night's Maryland win over George Washington, 76-53, in the BB&T Classic, the Terps (6-2) had lost four straight (including two to the Colonials) in the Washington showcase dating to Dec. 5, 2004.

Hot hands

The Terps shot 58 percent (7-for-12) from three-point range in the first half on their way to a comfortable 19-point halftime lead, and George Washington never threatened the rest of the game.

Cooling heels

For the second game in a row, Maryland sophomore center Braxton Dupree essentially sat. He was held out of the previous game against Michigan after missing a class. Last night, he was in for just one minute.

Coming attraction

Maryland (6-2) will play Delaware State (2-10) on Friday at 8 p.m. at Comcast Center. The Terps begin a seven-game home stretch; six are nonconference, and the final one is the ACC opener against Georgia Tech on Jan. 10.
