The week in review
Beat No. 18 UCLA, 70-54, and No. 20 Pittsburgh, 87-52, to win the Puerto Rico Shootout.
Beat unranked Wake Forest, 92-69, last night in ACC opener.
In the second half of the UCLA game and against Pittsburgh, junior college transfer Steve Francis made 13 of his 18 field-goal attempts, 72.2 percent.
Senior center Obinna Ekezie shot just 25 percent (4-for-16) in Puerto Rico, dropping his field-goal percentage to .475 before last night's 19-point outburst.
The week ahead
No. 5 Stanford in semifinals of BB&T; Classic Sunday (1 p.m.) at MCI Center.
Consolation (6 p.m.) or championship (8:30) against DePaul or George Washington Monday.
What to look for
Stanford has greater size than Maryland, but can the Cardinal match the quickness of the Terps? Regarding Monday, Terrell Stokes would love another shot at GW's Shawnta Rogers.
What's at stake
Only the possibility of Maryland's first No. 1 ranking ever. Tomorrow, top-ranked Connecticut plays No. 9 Michigan State. If the Terps can take care of business close to home
