Before his team left to play Kentucky early this season, second-year Buffalo coach Bobby Hurley put on the ring he received for helping win back-to-back national championships at Duke in 1991 and 1992.
With the start of the NCAA tournament, coach Mark Turgeon is hoping to see more efficiency than he did toward the end of the Big Ten Conference season, when opponents that played the Terps more than once figured Maryland out.
The Terps will play No. 13 seed Valapariso in the first NCAA tournament game under coach Mark Turgeon. Maryland last made the tournament in 2010 as a No. 4 seed and lost to Michigan State, 85-83, in the second round.
