The week in review
Lost at Wake Forest, 85-72, Sunday.
Lost at No. 2 Duke, 95-77, Wednesday.
Freshman forward Lonny Baxter made all five of his field-goal attempts against Duke. He has made 65.2 percent of his shots.
Terence Morris has not attempted a free throw this week and has shot 9-for-25. Obinna Ekezie wasn't a factor in either game.
Quotable "I think we played better [against Duke] than we did against Wake Forest, to tell you the truth. We got better, but there are still a lot of things wrong." -- Gary Williams, coach
The week ahead
Virginia at Cole Field House, tomorrow, 1 p.m. at N.C. State, Wednesday, 7 p.m.
What to look for
Look for the Terps to press a young Virginia backcourt and try to re-establish an inside presence in their half-court offense. Maryland had one of its easiest ACC games ever against N.C. State but can't take anything for granted.
What's at stake
The Terps must quickly reassert themselves as the second-best team in the ACC. The committee that seeds the NCAA tournament gives added weight to a team's last 10 games, and Maryland must shed its first losing streak or that segment of its record isn't going to be very flattering.
