COLLEGE PARK - - It was Maryland's first game since a nine-day layoff for final exams, and Gary Williams looked edgier than usual. The Maryland coach had noticed that Georgetown, Florida and Tennessee had all lost recently (to Old Dominion, Richmond and Southern California, respectively) during a period when many teams' schedules are interrupted by finals.

Williams' concerns seemed warranted only during a first half in which Maryland was largely invisible inside.
