An early-evening greeting from Comcast Center, where Maryland will play Winston-Salem State in another hour.
Because this is College Park, a routine pre-Christmas warmup can’t go without some sliver of news. In this case, junior walk-on David Pearman will sit out with a sprained right knee.
Pearman, who did not practice yesterday, will be re-evaluated before Sunday’s game with Florida Atlantic.
Pearman has four points and a rebound in nine minutes this season. For his career, he is averaging 0.3 points and 0.2 rebounds in 15 games.
