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).

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).
