5 Things To Look For Today

January 17, 2009


Change strategy:

So now Maryland knows the big lead thing doesn't work in an Atlantic Coast Conference game. The Terps just need to keep it close against Florida State (noon, chs. 54, 5).


Orange you watching?:

No. 12 Notre Dame is at No. 8 Syracuse (noon, ESPN). With the Irish's Luke Harangody playing so well, he should change his name to Harangoody.



Two great matchups involving ACC teams: No. 13 Georgetown at No. 3 Duke (1:30 p.m., chs. 13, 9) and No. 2 Wake Forest at No. 10 Clemson (3:30 p.m., chs. 2, 7).


Guilt by association:

We'll all be rooting for No. 20 Louisville against No. 1 Pittsburgh (6 p.m., ESPN). Just because.


Drive carefully:

Heading up to Pittsburgh for the game? Don't go even 1 mph over the speed limit if you're sporting Maryland plates.
