-- Everyone can relax--DJ Strawberry found his jumper. It was in the last place he looked. Honestly, I don't know why I even bother writing game previews. "Here is something that Oscar Opponent has been doing all season but will cease doing now that I've pointed it out." Strawberry makin' jump shots, Maryland's offense looking functional...and did Will Bowers shave? That's just kicking me while I'm down, man.

-- Maryland's five best offensive performances in conference play:

3.) at FSU 79 69 114.5
4.) vs. Ga Tech 80 74 108.1

-- Maryland's defensive rebounding was as bad as advertised. Too bad it didn't matter.
