The week in review
Lost at home to No. 2 Duke, 82-64, Sunday
Won at Virginia, 71-66, last night
Sophomore forward Terence Morris had made 21 straight free-throw attempts before a miss last night against Virginia. Through Wednesday, he led the ACC in field-goal percentage (.628) and was sixth in free-throw percentage (.839).
Freshman Juan Dixon went 1-for-12 from three-point range during the Terps' recent three-game homestand. With 22 threes, he still leads the team.
Quotable "We got hurt, obviously, by that game [Duke]." -- Gary Williams, coach
The week ahead
What to look for
The Tar Heels, who beat Florida State last night, will have a full week to prepare for the Terps. North Carolina has too much talent around point guard Ed Cota not to give Maryland fits at the Smith Center.
What's at stake N.C. State has one quality win. The North Carolina game should be Maryland's toughest until its second shot at Duke on Feb. 3, and the winner figures to get the early line on second place in the ACC. The Terps will be severely tested in their third game in seven days. Pub Date: 1/08/99
