Gary Williams doesn't want his Terps to get ahead of themselves since an NCAA tournament bid is far from secured, but the bracketologists out there all have Maryland in the field of 65.
ESPN.com's Joe Lunardi and Jerry Palm of Collegerpi.com both have the Terps as a No. 9 seed playing No. 8 seed Baylor in Little Rock, Ark., with the winner likely facing top-seed (and currently top-ranked) Memphis in the second round. Something called Bracketologist.com has Maryland as a No. 9 seed, too, but playing Gonzaga in Omaha, Neb., with the possibility of facing Kansas in the second round.
Right now, Williams wants his team to think only about facing Virginia Tech Wednesday night at Comcast Center. The Hokies, who won the first meeting in January in Blacksburg, Va., when the Terps blew a five-point lead in the final two minutes, have lost three straight and are coming off a 39-point blowout loss Saturday at North Carolina. Maryland has won 11 of its last 14.
For those amateur bracketologists out there, where do you think the Terps will be seeded? For those amateur travel agents, where do you think the Terps will play so I can get a good advance fare on my plane ticket?
