Terps report

Last night at Comcast Center

QUOTABLE

“He had a coolness in his eyes that he was ready.”

— MARYLAND GUARD JOHN GILCHRIST ON GUARD D.J. STRAWBERRY SCORING FIVE POINTS AT THE START OF OVERTIME.

KEY SHOT

GUARD MIKE JONES PLAYED JUST FIVE MINUTES, BUT HIS 3-POINTER WITH 46.8 SECONDS REMAINING GAVE MARYLAND AN 88-86 LEAD.

SEEN AND HEARD

IT WAS A PRETTY STRONG SHOWING IN THE STUDENT SECTION CONSIDERING FINALS ENDED SATURDAY. MAYBE THAT’S WHY THEY WERE YELLING LOUDER THAN NORMAL. … FORWARD MIKE GRINNON WILL MISS SEVERAL GAMES FOLLOWING DENTAL SURGERY. SO MUCH FOR THE WOMAN WHO WAVES A SIGN STATING “IT’S GRINNON TIME.” GRINNON SAID HE NEVER HAS MET THE FAN. … TWO WOULD-BE SANTAS BEHIND THE BASKET HELD A SIGN DECLARING “SANTA SAYS TERPS ARE CHAMPS.” … FOOTBALL COACH RALPH FRIEDGEN WATCHED HIS FIRST GAME THIS SEASON FROM COURTSIDE.
