Maryland-North Carolina Notes      

*The Terrapins lost 63-61 at Georgia Tech in their last outing, falling to eighth place in the Atlantic Coast Conference standings with a 6-8 league mark. The Terps have lost seven of their eight road games this season, but are only one game out of a tie for sixth. The Tar Heels are tied atop the league standings with Duke at 12-2.

*Currently at 16-12, Maryland is in line advance its string of consecutive winning seasons to 19. The last time a Terrapin team fi nished below .500 was 1992-93, when the Terps went 12-16 in the fi nal year of crippling NCAA sanctions. Each school in the ACC has had a losing season since the Terps (including Duke 13-18 in 1995, UNC 8-20 in 2002).

*Sophomore guard Terrell Stoglin continues to lead the ACC in scoring at 21.2 ppg and was 7th in the nation through last Sunday's games. He is 6 points away from 600 for the season, which could be the 19th time a Terrapin player reached that plateau. He is 30 points away from becoming only the third Terrapin to reach
1,000 career points in only his second season at the school (Joe Smith, 1993-95; Tom McMillen, 1971-73).

*Senior forward Tyler Zeller and University of Delaware junior forward Elena Delle Donne are the 2012 Capital One Academic All-Americas of the Year for men's and women's basketball, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

*Junior forward James Padgett has 97 offensive rebounds this season and is only a few away from becoming only the eighth Terp in history to grab 100 on the offensive glass in a single season. His 3.5 offensive rpg is second in the league only behind UNC's Tyler Zeller (3.8 rpg).

*Maryland's Terrell Stoglin has scored 20 or more points in 19 of his 28 games and leads the ACC in scoring (21.2).

*Tyler Zeller has scored at least 20 points seven times this season and has posted 23 double-figures scoring games in the 29 in which he has played this season.

*With 15 points and 11 rebounds vs. the Cavaliers, junior John Henson posted his 15th double-double of the season and the 34th of his career, tops among active ACC players.

*Kendall Marshall's 511 career assists are the second-most recorded by a conference player as a sophomore ... former Duke All-American Bobby Hurley had 577 in his first two seasons
